The sandpiper beacon really has something for everyone! My mom and I and my four children had a blast! The staff was great and our two room suite was just right! We didn't want to leave. We'll be back next year!

Room was very clean. Cleaning lady's very good , friendly. Never had to ask for anything. Beautiful view. Would stayed again. Don't recommend the Coconut restaurant across the street. Food was nasty. Over cooked. Waste of money. Even spoke with other people staying at resort. They all replied the same. Food was awful .

We needed a getaway. Something that had the memories of when we came as kids. The Sandpiper is one of the older places to stay but still really nice and family friendly. We are planning on another getaway and this will be where we stay.

Always have a good time at the Sandpiper Beacon. Lots of pools inside and out. Tiki is freaking awesome. Maverick is the best. Karokoe fun with the family. We spent alot of time at pool. Ocean water was too cold. Staff was very accommodating and happy to help meet our needs. Always have a good time at Sandpiper Beacon.

Reserved on a Thursday for a Saturday night stay. Didn't receive our confirmation email until Saturday. When we arrived Saturday we were given 2 room options by empathetic staff. We have a 18mth old and 3yr old and wanted a room closer to some children activities. We expected a lot of noise from spring breakers, but we're pleased that it...
