“Vacation with 10 children”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

Sandpiper Beacon was a great place to spend our week of vacation.. Lots of activities were provided for kids everyday such as bingo, beach games, inflatable water slide, smore night, movie night, etc. Not to mention there are pools, slides, a lazy river, a hot tub, a kiddie pool, shuffleboard, volleyball, beach playground at the resort. The kids were entertained the entire week. We went sailing on the Gulf for $10 per person as well. The resort made every effort to keep us happy, they even gave us a FREE room to help with space. Four adults and 10 children (ages 7-15) were in our party. I would recommend Sandpiper Beacon to anyone! If you are taking children, I would check the dates of bike week and spring break to avoid the partiers.

This is a nice place to stay. It is an older facility, but they are in the process of renovaiting. It offers many fun filled family actyivities that are free!! Something new and exciting is going on everyday.

Room Tip: They are great abot early check in and free room upgrades! You just need to ask!

If you are skeptical about this place, like I was, go ask the front desk to see the room you will stay in. Our room had new carpet and fresh towels! We were very happy with our overall experience! If it is not up to your standards, then go to another hotel nearby....there are hundreds to choose from on Front Beach Road. But our two children loved the heated pools and beachside playground. P.S. The deli was Delicious!!

Other reviews made me laugh when I got there... it is a family friendly atmosphere - with activities and areas for the kids to play... while many of the adults feel free to imbibe and enjoy their vacation. I mentioned some of the bad reviews when I checked in, and asked for one of the cleaner rooms - and received a terrific room, great service, beautiful beach, kids had fun, I relaxed, dog beach nearby for the little dog to play (I did take him out early morning and evenings on the beach, but risked getting a ticket). The kids laughed at couples making out in the water, I had to shift our stuff one time when another family encroached on our space (the beach wasn't terribly crowded, they were just oblivious) but I thoroughly enjoyed our short vacation stay. The food in the 'deli' was great (not fast, but it's not advertised as fast), the specials in the bar were nice, the movie by the beach was a great idea, but it was cancelled because of high winds, the lazy river was warm when the beach was cold.

We stayed last weekend in July 2011 for four night. We found the entertainment and on site pool/attractions to be a big plus. The bathroom in room was clean. The linens were clean. The property is older and is dated. The on-site deli is wonderful. Rooms are small and not the cleanest on the beach. You are not paying for the room. You are paying for access to the property. Great place for travel with children.
