About the location
The ritziest part of Barbados, the parish of St James is a perfect holiday spot, where you will find many of the top hotels and finest restaurants, alongside polo grounds and golf courses. It is a clean, sophisticated slice of Barbados, dubbed the 'Platinum Coast' and 'Millionaire's Row'.
The west coast beaches face the Caribbean Sea and are delightfully sheltered, with all sorts of watersports, and there's a good choice of bars and restaurants. Holetown is nearby and offers a selection of shops, many selling Mount Gay® Rum, Bajan art, pottery and batiks, while the capital, Bridgetown, is easily reached by local bus. Further along the coast from St James is stunning North Point, where the sea crashes thunderously onto the rocks.
35 minutes from Barbados airport.

Have been meaning to try the Sandpiper for lunch but never got round to it on previous trips. A rare rainy day driving past decided to call in on spec. After some discussion between reception and restaurant staff, we were escorted to a table on the terrace at Harold's Bar. They explained that as they were so busy with residents they were limiting walk ins for lunch and dinner, so maybe best reserve a table at peak times. The welcome and service we got was amazing, we were definitely not treated any different to the residents. There is a good choice on the lunch menu salads, sandwiches and more substantial dishes. I went for the Chicken Roti, the best roti I have ever had in Barbados and I've had many! My wife chose the dish of the day which was a breast of chicken cooked in rosemary and garlic, beautifully presented and delicious. For desert I went for the raspberry cheesecake, it was historic, probably the best cheesecake I have ever eaten, and so beautifully presented. Excellent choice of wine. Expensive but worth every cent. Definitely on our 'must go to' list for our future Barbados trips. If I was to stay in a hotel in Barbados, this would definitely be top of my list!

Went to The Sandpiper for Saturday night dinner. I can???t fault anything about the menu, our food or the excellent service by the very welcoming staff. The only downside was hardly anyone else was there which meant it was lacking in atmosphere. We still had a lovely time due the standard of the food. We weren???t totally alone to the excellent singer and bass player that went through some classic songs in the background.
Don???t let this review put you off I can???t believe it???s that empty most of the time.
Service, Food and menu are better than the Cliff in my opinion.
