Our college spring break was a week earlier than most so there was not much craziness going on during our week. The hotel needs to be updated a bit, but was perfect for college students. The best part about Sandpiper is being close to everything from nightlife to restaurants so we didn't have far to travel. We will definitely be...

We stayed on their special 5 nights for the price of 4 nights. The two rooms that we used were very well kept, kudos to the housekeeping crew. We could hear the neighbors and their dog whenever they were home. I's say for the price it was well worth the stay. Oh, I almost forgot. forget about using their Wi-Fi,,,...

Hotel needs some updating but it was clean, pools were great and staff were superior. Kids really enjoyed lazy river. Rooms were small but clean. Indoor pool area was very cold unless you were in the water.

We are repeaters and always stay at the Condos. Awesome view of the ocean and wonderful staff. Took my little 3 year old granddaughter to the Lazy River every day and she basically learned to swim under water in 4 days. Stayed at the beach house this time and it was great, all brand new appliances and lots of room....

Room was clean but the bathroom could use some updating. We only stayed one night so didn't get a chance to use any of the restaurants and it was too cold to use the pool or the beach. Their pet friendly policy was the main reason we chose to stay here. And our ocean view made it very worthwhile. I...

If you stay definitely don't get anything but a gulf side room. We upgraded to a partial view and was somewhat disappointed with the traffic noise and wind from the street side. We stayed in the off season and it was loud with dogs barking all of the time. There is plenty for a family and it is affordable.

Our room had a great view of the beach. The kids enjoyed the heated pools. The staff was very friendly. Only down side was that some renovations were being done and they would start early in the morning which would wake us up, but it's understandable that renovations must some during off season. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and can't...
