Sandy Point Village - Reader Reports & Opinion

I should have realized upon checking in, that this was not going to be the experience that I had expected. The receptionist took almost 20 minutes to check us in.
In addition you have to pay a deposit to use the remote. How ridiculous! By the way I was wrongly accused of not returning said remote by the receptionist.She did not apologize for this. I had to return to my room and search for the remote which I knew I returned.
The room, which was on the ground floor was poorly lit. The lighting was not ample at all.
The facilities are archaic. The bath tub was beginning to rust. The shower curtain is made of cloth which made it possible for water to permeate it and wet the floor. The shower head itself does not facilitate proper usage by anyone above 5'8". The hot water lasts about 5 minutes.
Upon requesting fresh towels the following day after arrival, I was told that the same towels are washed each day. So that you are inconvenienced by the hotel because they lack enough towels.
The daily newspaper was not delivered daily as advertised.
The best thing about the hotel was the scenery. That's it. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

My stay at Sandy Point was truly enjoyable! There was a slight hiccup at the check-in counter upon arrival, however the reservation desk clerk was very courteous,helpful and professional and the issue was sorted out in less than 10 minutes.
The poolside room was tastefully decorated and furnishings were of good quality.
During my stay the hotel staff were attentive and friendly at all times. Special mention must be made of the Steak and Lobster Grill staff! The surf and turf was heavenly and service was extraordinary!

I haven't stayed at Sandy Point Village, however I did call them to make a reservation for one night over a Weekend in September as my guest is coming on a Friday Midnight flight to Trinidad and we are taking the first boat out on the Saturday morning. I was told that I cannot book a room for one night on a weekend. I think this is absolutely absurd and I am immediately deterred from further considerations of staying there. I think there is false advertisng on the the site as rooms are quoted in TTD which I assume represented a per night rate.

My husband and I stayed at this resort for our honeymoon. It didn't seem inviting on the website but I had the opportunity to visit the island and after looking at some of the rooms offered to couples by the popular nearby establishments I came to realise that, Sandy Point was the most romantic - bedroom loft, pool right at the doorstep and not too crowded or noisy. The service was better than expected and the staff were helpful. The food was great and the view from the restaurant is breathtaking.The Air condition was not working properly in the room we were given tho and upon notifying the front desk, we were promptly given another room with the same features. However I do think that they should upgrade to cable and not charge for the remote. Bar not too stocked tho. But all in all we totally enjoyed our stay. I have already started recommending the place to others.

My husband and I after a long search decided to stay at sandy point village. we were a little nervous & excited because we did not know what we were going to meat. We reach about half hour before the check-in time and was allowed to go in our room - 806.
We had a great time...breakfast at the restaurant was excellent and anything that was not available at the resort was in walking distance reach. The pool was great, the room facilities was great...the stove worked fine and cleaners came in on a daily basis.
We are thinking about going back there next year.. i was a wonderful experience.
PS the staff was very friendly...especially at the restaurant.
