Vibe: Family-friendly, centrally located, casually elegant
At a Glance: The Sandpiper, owned by the same family as the Coral Reef Club, radiates ease and elegant comfort, with a family-friendly atmosphere.
Review: Located within walking distance of Barbados’s most charming hamlet, Holetown, the Sandpiper is convenient but still elegant. With seemingly endless possibilities for connecting the forty-four guest rooms, a well-located pool and a protected beach, the hotel is supremely family-friendly; some suites even have full kitchens. As at the Coral Reef Club, here many water sports are complimentary, and the casual restaurant and bar are open throughout the day.
Who Should Stay: Travelers looking for understated elegance and who do not need a scene.Indagare Loves:
- The small, protected but beautiful beach is ideal for families with young children
- Some suites boast full kitchens, appreciated on an island where many restaurants tend to be formal and expensive
- The small nature of the property means everything is close together, making trips from the beach to your bungalow when you forget something like sunscreen, very easy
