Unfortunately I was not able to go on the trips I had planned due to the pandemic. Nevertheless...
- Restaurant run by executive chef Christophe Poupardin, offering European and Asian fusion dishes with Caribbean flair.
- The finest live entertainment in Barbados on offer to guests most nights.
- Personal feel as owners Wayne and Karen Capaldi host a cocktail evening with guests each week.
- Take part in the Barbados Sea Turtle Project next to the hotel.
- Complimentary tennis coaching with a professional each day (except Sundays).
- All accommodation
The 50 well-appointed rooms and suites have a decor that blends colonial timber-cladding and rattan furniture with traditional Bajan fabrics and artwork for an old-school Caribbean feel.
All feature king or twin beds, air-conditioning and a fridge. They also have a balcony or terrace overlooking the gardens, pool or ocean. There are no televisions in the room but a flat-screen TV (local channels only) and DVD are available on request.
The hotel is set in palm-fringed tropical gardens in a quiet sandy cove on the west coast of the island. Whilst none of the beaches on Barbados are private, the arc of the coastline makes the Sandpiper’s stretch of sand feel very exclusive.
The bars, restaurants and shops of Holetown are close by, whilst the capital, Bridgetown, is only 12 km (8 miles) away and easily reached by local bus or taxi. The west coast of Barbados is lined with a wide variety of resorts but The Sandpiper’s setting, tucked among beautiful gardens makes it feel a little more secluded, whilst still leaving guests free to try a wide range of dining nearby.
Food and drink
Simply named, The Restaurant is renowned for its food. Expect creative dishes with a Caribbean flair from a dinner menu that change five times a week. They will also be happy to tailor-make dishes to meet dietary requirements. There’s a focus on high-quality local produce — we recommend the fresh-caught lobster dishes. Open on three sides, the restaurant is surrounded by torch-lit gardens and tranquil koi ponds which provide a relaxed and romantic ambience.
There is also an elegant cocktail bar adjoining the restaurant, and Harold’s Beach Bar is the ideal spot for alfresco lunches or a sundown cocktail. In the evening there’s usually low-key, live entertainment including jazz, calypso or reggae.
Children are welcome at all times except between 20 January and 28 February. However, the hotel doesn’t allow children under five years to dine in the restaurant after 7pm, instead they offer a dinner service in-room. The Sandpiper will also cater for babies by blending fresh fruit and vegetables.
The hotel offers a special summer family program for children aged 2 -12 years and there’s also a playground at their sister hotel, Coral Reef, which is a two-minute drive away.
The hotel staff are happy to help plan excursions to explore the island, including visits to the Andromeda Botanical Gardens, the capital of Bridgetown or a rum distillery.
The Sandpiper’s understated elegance and charm makes this our top luxury west coast hotel. We feel it’s an ideal choice for those looking for the personal service of a smaller hotel, and want to enjoy high-quality dining on-site.
