I have stayed in many hotels in Barbados over the years but without doubt this is by far the best. The staff and management are polite and attentive and everything is clean and tidy. The service on the beach is discrete but there is a flag system by each sun lounger that allows you to get the attention of the...

Just got home from ten nights. Have to say Sandy Lane is still the best and I would say I'm a pretty high end seasoned traveller! It's so comfortable, unpretentious, friendly and the food is excellent! We had room service a few times as our room was so lovely and it was five star in every way. If I could...

We have stayed here many times and it is certainly one of our favourite hotels. We felt a few years ago after the rebuild they had a couple of teething problems but these are way in the past the service is back to being excellent and the food has always been first class. The rooms are fabulous with really comfy...

Sandy Lane is the epitome of elegance and sophistication with a European feel. The facility is posh with a focus on a grandiose lifestyle. The preceding comes along with a rather sizable price tag for your stay. The only disappointment I would convey is on the food offerings. On certain days, only buffet options were made available for dinner. Please...

We have stayed at Sandy Lane 5 times, and are about to book our 6th visit. We have travelled all over the world and stayed in some fabulous hotels, but for some reason we keep going back to Sandy Lane. Perhaps it's because of the wonderful service from the moment you step off the plane, the cocktail waiting for you...

Third visit to this fantastic hotel. We travel 7 / 8 times each year and this hotel / holiday remains the one we always look forward to the most. It starts with the Pink Ladies and the fast lane out of the airport and then the Rolls Royce ride to the hotel (optional extra!) The welcome when you arrive, the...

A birthday celebration and an anniversary combined meant the first visit to Sandy Lane for us. We are accomplished diner outers and OMG were we spoilt. Exceptional in every way. No Michelin Star ? Why ever not ! It far outshines just about every top restaurant we've ever been to. Thank you all for a very special evening.

I first visited in the 1970s with my childhood sweetheart, we were 18 and both had brand new passports. We spent an amazing time here in the days when the hotel let you use their beach buggies to drive around the island I still have my driving licence issued by the police in Bridgetown. We ate outside on the terrace...

Top hotel but it's the laid back atmosphere and friendly staff that make it so special. Suitable for youngsters of all ages. They sell themselves as your 'second home'. If only my first home was as good!
