Having taken Afternoon Tea at the worlds best hotels, this experience ranks with the very best. Impeccable service, superb setting and delicious food. A brief taste of why the privileged few are attracted to this iconic Caribbean hotel.

We visited the Sandy Lane having stayed close by previously. My Mother always told us not to go for various reasons. Anyway, it was pretty faultless in every respect and we are back again this year. Yes, it is ludicrously expensive, but if you have had a good year and worked your backside off in the process, then where better...

Sandy Lane has earned it's reputation for good reason. The standard of service is unmatched. The hotel is gorgeous, the rooms are spacious and clean, the food is excellent, and pools and lounge areas are stunning. The only fault I can share is the limited beach space. At a hotel of this caliber, you shouldn't have to sit right next...

Spent 5 of the most relaxing and splendidly peaceful days, thanks to the staff of sandy lane. Luxury is an understatement, all of our needs were carefully and expertly considered. The atmosphere was heavenly, from the spa to the beach and the dining experience were second to none. That feeling of total relaxation is hard to find today in our...

We decided to revisit the Sandy Lane Hotel this year since 2017 is fifty years since our honeymoon at this hotel. Of course it was a very different place in those days and although we have revisited on one or two occasions over the last few years for Brunch we had never been for a diner à deluxe before ,...

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...
