We stayed here six years back and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
As mentioned in the management companies response each apartment will be different in its level of decor and equipment and really it is up to the renter to satisfy himself that the location and standard is up to expectation. If the renter is misled by pictures that do not accurately depict the accommodation then this would clearly be wrong.
To describe the Sandpiper hotel as a shabby building is just ridiculous. We walked down to the beach past Art Studios yesterday and thought the place was looking as good as ever, we would stay here again, the only thing that stopped us this visit was the works on the beach.
I don't even know why the poster asked to rent a sun bed from Sandpiper, they are a five star (I think) hotel not some beach equipment vendor, rooms go for more money a night than you will pay for an Art studio for a week.
Oh and seeing a mongoose is like seeing a squirrel at home, they are common around the island and do a deal of good and are no bother to tourists.
No smell yesterday as we walked through either.
In summary the studios are in a great location and are reasonably priced.More
