I have read tons of reviews on Trip Advisor but never written one-until now!! Just returned from a fantastic weekend celebrating my 50th bday at the Sandpearl. This hotel is first class! The property is stunning and on an absolutely beautiful beach. The grounds are immaculate and the service top-notch! Every staff member we encountered went above and beyond for every need or request. Everyone is super friendly and the service is unlike any other hotel I have visited. I poured over reviews before booking this hotel and I definitely made the right choice! Don't hesitate to book-this place is just fantastic!! Already can't wait to return!! Thank you Sandpearl for making my 50th one to remember! Read less

On July 23 of this year I phoned the Sandpearl and spoke to the concierge to request something special be sent to a pair of upcoming guests. My parents were to travel there on Sept 12 for their 60th wedding anniversary. I'm one of 5 children and we're scattered about the country and we thought it might be a nice idea to have some goodies sent to their hotel room as celebration of the wonderful event from the kids. The concierge offered me a chocolate covered strawberries and prosecco solution for $48. Great! I asked that "Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! We love you! - Love, The Kids" be added as a sentiment. Super and done...I was satisfied as were my siblings when I reported the plan. Fast forward to the event...yesterday. My mother texted me a photo (attached) of what was delivered...minus a few strawberries and the prosecco out of frame. What a disappointment! "H.A. M & D..."????!!! I realize the chocolate script would have had to be small but for $48, I'm confident someone could have scribed the entire sentiment. Not done with dismay, yet!...fast forward to yesterday afternoon. I received a phone call from the Sandpearl Resort. It's the concierge. Mom had reported and shared photo of the delivery (not knowing what I'd actually ordered and if she was truly disappointed she'd never have shared that) so I knew that part was done. Concierge apologizes that, since July when I placed the order the price has gone up. Ok...was delivered already so really didn't have a choice. Price went up to $72.92!!!!! I was stunned. I thanked him for sharing the price increase instead of it just showing up on our credit card bill but am truly truly disappointed in this whole experience. Hoping my mom and dad are having a great time and do not intend to share this with them and ruin THEIR opinion of service at what is supposed to be an exemplary resort. Read less

My husband and I just got back from an amazing 6 night stay at Sandpearl. Other than 2 glitches, which were worked out by the management to my satisfaction, we had an amazing time. The hotel is gorgeous and the beach is the most beautiful that I have ever seen. The staff is very professional and always busy working and being polite. The location is such that you do not need a car, which is a HUGE bonus when vacationing. Tons of great restaurants and bars within a block or two. We literally just booked another trip here for my birthday in January and we can't wait to go back. Read less
