Room was nice and the public areas were nice as well, I wasn't in the room much, mostly at the beach but the tiki bar is fun, indoor pool lazy river all very good if you have children, especially small ones. They charge 25 cents for ice......only thing I could even think to complain about

We enjoyed our visit. This is a pet friendly hotel but only for dogs 10 lbs and under. We had 2 kitties so we had to leave them home. Wish they'd take fixed, declawed cats... We had the king bed room with partial beach view. The view was awesome but the bed takes up the whole room. The hotel is...

This was our 5th year to stay at the Sandpiper Beacon. I must say, that it was the best year. They have really done a lot of improvements to the resort. They do updates and remodeling every year. The staff is always very friendly and helpful, and the beach is always clean. I love the palm trees around the property,...

The room was good we had plenty of room for everyone, a little dated but it not like we went for the decor. Loved the fact that there was so much to do there for the kids that you really didn't have to leave. Already booked a trip back in April.

The hotel has a lot of fun activities going on each evening that we really enjoyed. We really enjoyed making smores over the fire and playing miniature golf. The hotel itself is pretty run down. The sleeping rooms are nice especially if you have a gulf view with a patio. But the hallways are falling apart and seem like a...
