We enjoyed a very pleasant stay at the Sandy Point Beach Club. Our stay felt like a cool summer camp experience; very informal, but comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly. One side note - some rooms have murphy beds, but use caution when lowering them. They are extremely heavy and aren't spring-loaded!
Two previous reviewers wrote about security issues at the hotel, so I took the precaution of buying small door and window alarms for the rooms. But my concerns were unfounded. The doors have several locks, and one of them can not be opened from outside. I felt safe enough that I didn't even use the alarms that I brought. Also, there is a constant security presence at the hotel. I noticed while down there that there is another property with a similar name - the reviewers may have mixed up the properties.
My boyfriend had a wonderful introductory diving lesson with Big Dougie, which was one of the highlights of his stay. We also took a tour through the hotel to Speyside for snorkeling, which was enjoyable. I wish that we would've also taken the chartered boat excursion, which received rave reviews from some of the other hotel guests.
One of the best things about the hotel was the location... it was walking distance to Store Bay, the airport, and a lot of restaurants. However, it may be helpful to take a taxi until you learn your way around the area... some places may be easy to miss.
That said, we felt that the food at restaurants were overpriced for very basic food, with relatively small portions. After a few days of experimenting, we started eating local food, which was much more enjoyable (stewed chicken, curry goat, peas and rice, macaroni pie, etc) for a third of the cost.
