Having been y lane to this hotel/ palace many times, if anyone can tell me why they never enjoyed it, I'm sure I would refund your expenses, it's impossible not to enjoy yourself, every staff member is trained to help every guest to the best of everything, also the 10 star spa is the best in the world, and that...

I felt I should write a review of probably my favourite hotel in the world even though I was last there a couple of years ago. The rooms are beautifully decorated ( I always ask for a blue and white colour scheme) and have probably the best wardrobe/dressing room space of any hotel I have stayed in. The staff are...

The review is long overdue considering we visited the hotel in 2013. The hotel more than lives upto the expectations and really is worth the $$. An example of Sandy Lane service - We stayed in the Orchid Room but due to a fault in air conditioning, were upgraded two level up to Luxury Ocean room which my husband agreed...

Every country has it's little piece of magic and it is Sandy Lane Hotel that takes the number one spot in Barbados. This is quite some pressure to take on. However from my short time there it had it all in place. This is my kind of hotel, it is well maintained and all in order. The hotel provides all...

Sandy Lane must have the best service in Barbados. Bring used to the high level of service in Dubai and Maldives it was a pleasure to be greeted by Alpha Jackman on arrival and he continued his high level of service throughout the trip. Breakfast Buffett is best selection I've seen and grilled artichokes on beach was a favourite. Trees...

Reservations for afternoon tea are a must! Upon arrival at the gate, we gave our names and were greeted warmly. We were escorted downstairs to the lower terrace. Tables are set with beautiful Limoges china made for Sandy Lane. We were a party of six and the waitress suggested we order 4 tea set ups. I had read that 1...

Immaculate is how we all described Sandy Lane. Notably the service is absolutely top. The restaurant, be it for breakfast, lunch or diner, surpassed expectations (it is buffet-style, granted). Rooms are spacious, classic yet timeless and ultra-clean. Extra's such as groceries, excursions etc are dealt with right away and very efficiently. We hope to be back!

After hearing that afternoon tea is a lovely treat, my family went with great anticipation. What a disappointment. The service was so slow it ruined the treat. We intended to order 2 teas but the waitress suggested we only order 1 tea for 2 adults and 2 kids and then add extras. It was way to little and had I...
