The water is azure, the sky lavender, the beach intensely white. Even if the hotel / beach club / al fresco seafood dining doesn't grab you and refuse to let go (though why wouldn't it?)... you will want find yourself inexorably drawn to chatting to the concierge to arrange very special family adventures diving with turtles / island-hopping / sailing...

If you want to fall in love with a hotel, this is IT...from dining to pampering, this is perfection and bliss combined. VIP service from front gate to spa, breakfast to dinner, room to beach, this hotel is second-to-none.

Just spent two weeks at Sandy Lane with the kids; this is our sixth time here. There is just no better hotel in Barbados ! We travel a lot as a family and this place is in a league of its own.

What a place to travel too. VIP service all the way, great rooms, amazing staff, they cater to your every need. Room service food great also. Gym spot on, pool just right, beach amazing!! We would have liked the trousers only rule for dinner to be a little more relaxed for smart shorts, what with the heat and humidity. So...

My husband and traveled to sandy Lane for our 10 yr anniversary. It was by far the most beautiful resort with fantastic customer service. The staff catered to each of their guests not overlooking the smallest of details. We did not travel with our son, but will most definitely travel there again with him as it is very kid friendly,...

I spent 5 weeks travelling around Barbados and thought that I would take a look at what all the fuss was about with Sandy Lane. Inside is undoubtedly spectacular, but well over priced. It has a reputation as being a millionaires club, well that may be true and if you don't care about being extortionately over charged then Sandy Lane...

I've been travelling to Barbados for 12 years, always opting to stay in the south coast around the Gap, however we wanted to try something different and opted for the west coast this time, although we were not staying in Sandy Lane (a little out of our price budget) we decided to try their afternoon tea. From the greeting at...

I was lucky enough to return to Sandy Lane in May this year and i think it was better than the time before if that is possible! From the moment i stepped out of the car from the airport and was greeted with "Welcome Home" we were treated to the most fabulous experience. Understated elegance - I love it.

This is definitely the most beautiful spa property I have visited . Open marble vistas and sprawling manicured grounds . The manager was very knowledgeable and had such a nice disposition . Loved the little tiny touches , and you must visit the room with the amethyst crystals . Simply beautiful .......
