Sandy Point Beach Club - Reader Reports & Opinion

Because I have had the opportunity to stay at several resort type locations, some more eleborate than others, I was not impressed with these accommodations. We were a party of three attending a wedding at another location. The villa (as it was termed), not really a villa, was very musty and hot. The only AC was in the upper bedroom which did not filter down to the lower level. There was insufficient lighting and linens. The sleeping accommodations were also not appropriate.

My extended family and I stayed at Sandy Point for 1 week. There were 3 families in all, including 3 toddlers, an 8 year old and 5 adults. Nine in total and what can I say. The staff were courteous and accomodating and we absolutely enjoyed our time there. A good measure of fun is to ask our children. They loved it. There was enough there to entertain them all and they never got bored. The view from the loungers at the pool and on the beach and from the seats at the bar were calming and just plain beautiful. We never got tired of watching the pelicans feed while sipping an exotic drink. And we always tried to race to the beach to watch the sunset. The late night activities were fun and just relaxing.
The bar staff were kind and made really good mixes. There was pool, table tennis, darts etc. available at the bar and the swimming pool was close by so we could all have fun and keep an eye on the children. The rooms were well equipped. My mom, sister-in-law and I marvelled at the kitchen supplies. There was everything (blender, pots, pans) that was needed except for the food, foil and plastic wrap of course. We could have a dinner party and be well equipped. The mini mart also sold salt and pepper in little bags that fit into the salt and pepper shakers.
Our rooms held all nine of us, with privacy. The children had their separate space and the adults did as well. The view was not the greatest from where we were, but we did not spend much time looking out the windows. The hot tubs were very convenient, one right outside our porch. The mini mart was well equipped and competitively priced. I would caution about the restaurant though, as we found it excessively pricey. We ate there for some specials but would rather walk out to the main road. We thoroughly enjoyed our local meals provided by the lady with the BBQ stall at the side of Milford Rd across from the burger and fries place.
We took the charter/van to Pigeon Point and it was convenient. We did spend a lot of money travelling by car, but then again there were 9 of us. The trips into Scarborough were well worth it and the taxi drivers helped us find local fruits at much better prices.
All in all, the staff were great, the prices were okay, the place is superb and the location is perfect. That it is near the airport was not a problem and noise was not a factor. We will definitely vacation there again and may even buy a time share. It is well worth it after our experience. Friends and family who visited us at there also fell in love with it and have subsequently booked their own time there as well. Do your research, not much will compare for the same affordability, location and ease.

This was the perfect get away! There were nine of us (4adults and 5children). Even though there were quite a few people staying at the beach club you would never know. The place was very peaceful, even with our large family. We stayed in a court yard suite which was enormous and very clean I might add. The in suite kitchen was fully equiped. There was a play area for the kids including a tennis/basket ball court. The ocean sunsets were beautiful. Our family enjoyed every minute of our stay at Sandy Point Beach Club and because of that we purchased a time share. We can't wait to go back. The staff is amazing! It is definately a home away from home, just a million times better!

I have been visiting sandy point since 2001 i like the place the only issue i have is the check in and check out time.I think this should be reviewed checking out at 10 am and checking in at 4pm is just not right ..some where you don't get your full 24 hrs that you paid for.
The other issue is if you have kids what do you do? it is terribly inconvenience to just wander aimlessly around making up time for the ferry or your flight.i think we should have the option to pay for the extra hours needed and that will solve the problem.sometimes one have a relative that is not so well and can't take that wandering around....please try and work something out to help your customers that like to stay in your place..please .

In July, 2007 my family and I were guests at the Sandy Point Beach Club. We spent a week at the club.
We found accomodations to be clean and well kept. Staff were quiet but friendly. Our stay was quite relaxing and safe. The location is quiet and tucked away but still close to all amenities. We weren't crazy about the restaurant though. There are a lot of food choices closeby so we usually ate out.
This was our second time visiting the Beach Club. Each time we were promised to be picked up by a shuttle but this never came. There were a lot of taxis willing to drive us to the hotel however.
