I had lunch at Sandy Lane Hotel, Barbados last week, followed by the Royal Afternoon Tea with Laurent Perrier Champagne. It was an absolute delight - it was complete perfection. Special thanks to Jackie and Alison for their politeness and super efficient service. They are a credit to the hotel. I did notice that all the staff acknowledged their guests...

We were fortunate enough to visit sandy lane in September 2014. From stepping out of the airport sandy lane staff greeted us and we were whisked by luxury car to the hotel where the manager was waiting with cocktails to show us to our room - no check in boredom here. We had an orchid room which I was expecting...

I had previously given the afternoon tea a very poor review. Since then, the hotel manager has spoken to me and profusely apologised for the dismal service. He also did his very best to rectify the matter. I am grateful for both these things and hope that the problems I had won't occur again. Thank you Mario.

But if you enjoy being able to control the temperature of your room fully then don't stay here. I have stayed here 4 times now, both in normal rooms and the penthouse suite. For some reason they decide how cold you can have your room temperature. I even called maintenance who said it is water cooled air conditioning and even...

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.
