Outstanding in Every Way!
Sandy Lane is quite possibly the best resort in the world! Aside from the world class beach location, hotel, amenities and a fabulous spa, what elevates Sandy Lane above other resorts is the people and the service! From the moment you arrive, you are whisked from the airport through immigration, etc. and into a waiting luxury car to transport you to the hotel. Seamless. Every member of the staff at Sandy Lane is hospitable and helpful (BTW, this seems to be true of the entire island). Service is anticipated before you know you need it. There was not one glitch. As an American, I had been a bit concerned that Sandy Lane might be formal or a bit stuffy and it was neither. Everyone was extremely warm and welcoming. It was our first time to Barbados and to Sandy Lane. It will not be our last.
Out of this world
A haven of peace and tranquility with excellent facilities and dining. All staff friendly and courteous and couldn’t do enough for you. The Spa and the country club with outstanding golf were the icing on the cake.
We had always wanted to go to Sandy Lane hotel but knew cost would always be an option to stay there! Afternoon Tea felt like a treat to enjoy and whilst we had read mixed reviews our experiences were nothing but positive. The Resort, based on the West Coast is quite something to behold. The limestone bricked building with its colonial look stands proud surrounded by lush greenery which must take an army of groundsman to maintain is just amazing. Upon arrival at Security you are greeted politely asking your name and purpose along with instruction where to go for the valet parking. I must say our little Suzuki Jimmy felt out of place!!!!! As we approach the main building down the drive the valet parking steps out to open your doors and take your keys....... I’m hoping the Suzuki comes back in the form on a Bentley ....... We are ushered through the reception and told we are a little early but can enjoy the views from the bar with a cocktail which we did. This time of year the whole island is quiet, Sandy Lane is no exception. A short time later Jackie our host greets us with the afternoon menu and explains the options. By now we are both salivating. We chose the Afternoon Royal Tea which included champagne. At 3pm prompt we were ushered to our table which had views down through the plaza onto the beach and the Caribbean Sea. Jackie was very attentive and happy to engage in conversation as she brought through our delights. No rush, nothing too much trouble a very lovely afternoon. We sat ..... drank champagne 🥂...... are sandwiches...... fresh warm scones and cakes the selection was vast! We could no clear the plates so Jackie offered to box everything up for us to take back with us. Everything is Sandy Lane branded ..... the cutlery..... the glasses, the napkins, everything! Brand and Customer come first! Settling the bill was again far from rushed and definitely and when you are ready! Which was great. Following our tea we had a little wander, and the resort is truly luxurious and very nice indeed. All in all a superb one off experience that we can say we have done and enjoyed so glad we did it. Our host Jackie was a gem and a compliment to the staff and standard you would expect. One day maybe one day we could return as guests to possibly stay a while. Thank you Sandy Lane.
Celebrated my birthday at Sandy Lane with the Royal afternoon tea. Arrived early so had a cocktail on the terrace. Staff extremely friendly and professional. Afternoon tea served.. tastefully presented. We had a lovely afternoon at Sandy Lane and would recommend when in Barbados.
Birthday Celebration 10th September 2019
Just back from celebrating my daughters birthday at the famous Sandy Lane Hotel in Barbados. As a family we keep coming back, Charlotte and Alex got married in St. James Church, Holetown, followed by a fairytale reception on Sandy Lane Beach. The whole day was planned down to the last detail, and Alex being a romantic, wanted his bride Charlotte to feel like Cinderella. So, Sandy Lane worked its magic and did just that. Sandy Lane Car, Horse and Carriage, Torch lit marquee, candlit dining tables, elegant table settings with the most beautiful tropical flowers, throw in a steelpan, gospel choir, staff all turned out in their pristine uniforms, and you have some of the ingredients for a magical wedding. So, it seems appropriate that we celebrated Charlottes 28th birthday at Sandy Lane too. Mr. Wilkie the General Manager greeted us like old friends, all the staff came over to Charlotte and sang Happy Birthday, and even the Chef came to our table and chatted away. Last December, my eldest daughter Natasha celebrated her 30th birthday at Sandy Lane too. So why do we keep coming back. its simply this. Beyond those famous Sandy Lane gates, lies a unique place, like no other on earth. It signifys Class, Service and more Service. Its created with elegance, romance, style and attention to detail. Every corner just draws you in and then you are smitten. Mr Wilkie runs the place like a hollywood production, everything has to be perfect, no detail is missed or too small. Everyone has to play their part. His staff all respect him and this is portrayed in their friendliness and their determination to make your stay however long or short momemorable. Thankyou Mr. Wilkie, thankyou all the staff, and thankyou Sandy Lane, will be of course be back xxx
