The Sandpiper Review
An intimate vibe and (practically) private beach keep guests coming back to this little hideaway on the west coast of Barbados, with guest rooms and suites arranged throughout 7 acres of gardens. One- and two-bedroom suites have a separate living room and full kitchen, and all rooms have a toaster to ensure warm, freshly made toast with your room-service breakfast. Each unit has a CD player; those who can't live without TV can rent one by the week. Two beachfront Tree Top Suites are luxuriously spacious, with wraparound terraces with a wet bar and plunge pool, and bathrooms as big as some Manhattan apartments. Water sports, including waterskiing, are complimentary. Scuba diving, children's programs, massage, and other personal services are available at the Coral Reef Club, which is nearby.
