We had a very good stay. Even though we love this place we would suggest a few improvements. Bathroom fixtures are in need of repair and a way to clean and mop floors would be nice. Otherwise our stay could not have been better. Plan to come back next year.

Manager's Response

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores at the popular Sandpiper. Your condo should have had a mop and bucket, and we would certainly have provided them if we had known they were missing. We welcome your future stay and will happily assist you in booking your next Gulf Coast getaway!

There was a basketball goal in the pool and a large number of kids (there with a family reunion) playing that took up the entire pool playing every day. I understand it's everyone's vacation and everyone wants to have a good time, but the entire pool every day got annoying and was inconsiderate. The basketball goal was broken halfway through the week, only for someone to turn around and purchase a new one. I have stayed at the Sandpiper multiple times and have never seen anything like this. 16A was a lovely condo and I would highly recommend!

Manager's Response

The unique layout of Sandpiper make it a popular place for family reunions. We're so glad you enjoyed unit 16A, which has a lovely view from its private, beach front balcony.

We love staying at SandPiper. We’ve stayed for several years now. The condo was very clean. I loved the balcony with the swing overlooking the beach. At times it was loud but it seemed to always end around 10pm. Pool was clean but the concrete around the edge of the pool is very ruff and could possible hurt a child. Overall our stay was relaxing.

Manager's Response

We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores, and particularly in Sandpiper 16A. The open atmosphere of Sandpiper, combined with the private, beach front balcony of 16A make for a very pleasant beach trip!

This was our first Christmas in Gulf Shores. We have stayed at Sandpiper twice a year for the last 10+ years. We always try to stay in 16A because my wife loves the porch swing and the views are beautiful. Unfortunately when we arrived the pool had been drained for maintenance and no one told us ahead of time. We would have not booked at Sandpiper if we knew this ahead of time. I'm disappointed that Bender did not warn us, or try to accommodate us when we brought it to their attention. We contacted Bender about the pool but they seemed like they really didn't care or even know the pool was closed. They also painted the stairs next to our unit during our stay and we had to walk down to the opposite end of the complex to leave. We have never had any issues like this before at Sandpiper and I hope this was a one time occurrence, as we really enjoy it here.

Manager's Response

We hope that you enjoyed your Gulf Shores Christmas. We truly do appreciate your repeat business. Being a spring and fall visitor in the past, you will not have experienced the winter repair work that typically is done during the winter before the arrival of our snowbirds. This occurs beach-wide, as management companies don't want to do such repairs during peak seasons. While not able to access other property's pool facilities, Gulf Shores does have a wonderful recreation facility that is open to visitors for a nominal fee. We hope to see you in the future at Sandpiper!

Love staying at Sandpiper, this is the first time we stayed in Unit 16A, loved the location, size and the private deck, it sure came in handy when rocking the baby. My husband and I invited our daughter, her husband and their 4 year old and 10 month old. We had a few issues, contacted Bender and maintenance was there the next day. One was the master shower was not draining, they came and cleaned it out and it worked fine. The rack on the refrigerator door feel off the first time we opened it and the blind in the master was bent and broke, that morning sun and parking lot light sure shined in. Maintenance said they would talk to the owners about replacing it but never saw them again. The blinds in the living room could be replaced, several didn't have handles to open or shut and others were broke. Other than these minor details, the room was clean and accomandating. We will for sure be back and will try for this room again.

Bender Realty is a class group! We have stayed at The Sandpiper over 40 times and appreciate all the staffs help over the years. Our experience at the Sandpiper is that the beach is wonderful, the pool area for the kids is great plus right in the middle and very useful. We generally reserve one of the six-end units. We have stayed in 16A numerous times but feel the owners are milking a good thing. In other words, great rental income, very few upgrades. The furniture is dated, seems to be hodge-podgy of styles and colors. King BR Mattress is horrible! The wallpaper in the MBR bath was cut 15-years ago, not now. Some units have been fabulously upgraded including new kitchens, bathrooms with nice standup showers, etc. In July, just within our kids and grandkids we have up to 4-units. I have sent employees here for 28-years as a reward and they asked me 4-years ago for other choices. Love Sandpiper, Bender but it is becoming a hard sale to my family that has come for 28-year.

This unit is in desperate need of updating - new mattresses needed - shower heads had mold ( and very old) - had to get maintenance to clean . Couches were old and faded - one coffee table was tore up , kitchen chairs were glued together, no cushions, dishwasher extremely noisy .Will not stay in this unit again ! I have stayed in other units at Sandpiper- which we LOVED !! Not worth the extra money for this end unit !!

This was our second time as a family staying at Sand Piper and also several previous visits without kids. Overall we enjoyed this stay and this end view unit and will return. Unit 16A is not as updated as many of the others, however has a great end unit view. The only notable downfalls were that the beds/mattresses were overly worn and noisy and likely in need of replacement. There were also some ceiling water damage and bugs observed in both bathrooms which we had never seen at Sandpiper before.

We had to call for a garbage disposal problem, and the man was there to fix it in less than 10 minutes. The property is very well maintained and the pool is the best one in the area with all the landscaping. We very much enjoyed our stay and will recommend Sandpiper. Thank you for your hospitality.

The condo was clean and well stocked. Just steps from the beach and pool was great with our toddler. The grill area was also wonderful. We loved that it was very easy to find your way around town and everything you could need was very close by. We will definitely go back and probably try to stay at Sandpiper. Maybe a different condo because the beds in this condo were very uncomfortable. Melissa from Champaign, IL

We have been coming to the Sandpiper for over 15 years. I will not stay anywhere else in Gulf Shores. It has a wonderful family atmosphere, the pool is protected from the wind, and there is actually grass and trees rather than concrete.

The sofas, chairs, beds and bedding need to be replaced because they are outdated. Seaweed on the beach was NOT picked up in six days making it unattractive and dirty. There was lots of trash on the beach this year that nobody had picked up in our six-day stay; however, there were people picking up tar balls daily. Very dissatisfied about this!

My family & I vacation at Gulf Shores each year & each year we stay at the Sandpiper Complex & book our reservations with Bender Realty. This year we stayed in Condo 16A and could not have been more pleased. The condo was EXCELLENT! As with every visit to the Sandpiper the condo was clean, the grounds was well maintained, the pool was well kept, the grill area had all the supplies & were clean and the overall appearance was great. Condo 16A was beautifully furnished & well taken care of. The view of ocean from the livingroom/kitchen was breath taking. The staff at Bender Realty is ALWAYS friendly, helpful & professional. Each time we arrive we feel like we've come "home". The amazing staff, accomidations & atmosphere of Bender, Sandpiper & beautiful "island" of Gulf Shores keeps us looking forward to our next visit & a little sad when we have to leave this paradise and return to reality. A huge THANK YOU to Bender Realty, the owners of 16A & the wonderful city of Gulf Shores for amazing vacations year after year.
This place is awesome & my family & I all VERY HIGHLY recommend Bender & the Sandpiper!

This is the 2nd year we visit the Sandpiper and it's the most kid friendly condo I know of. 16A is a great unit because of it's close proximity to the pool and the beach... I love the swing on the beach balcony! The only thing I was disappointed about in the unit was the very small TV (smaller than my computer monitor) in the living room and the lack of a TV in one of the bedrooms!

Love love loved it!

We had a wonderful time in Gulf Shores. We really like the Sandpiper, but our unit was a little disappointing. When we walk into the unit it had a very bad musty odor. We couldn't quite figure out where it was coming from..Maybe the furniture in the livingroom? Our refrigerator didn't keep things very cold. We had men painting on our deck...The reason why we picked this unit was because of the deck overlooking the gulf. They were also pounding and hammering at 8:00 in the morning on our deck and others. We came to Gulf Shores for a relaxing and quiet vacation. :(

Beach was beautiful. Stay was lovely.

This is the second year we have stayed at the Sandpiper. This year was even better than the last. Much of that had to do with the very helpful staff at Bender. They helped my mother find a beach capable wheel chair for my father and told us about several good places for the family to go and have some fun. We will be back next year for sure.

The accomodation was very nice. The pool was too small for the number of rooms. We would stay there again. One thing we were upset about. We left 2 little girls dresses and called back after we were about 100 miles toward home. I know the dresses were found by the cleaning crew but were not turned in. We left a camera at one of the Phoneix hotels a couple of years ago and it was returned to us. I would expect your service to be the same. I am dissapointed that it was not.

The master bath, bathroom smelled like pee, I'm not sure if it was moped or if it was on the rug. Also, when we arrived I found out the dishwasher was broke. If you put the dish soap in, the compartment was broke.

This was our 15th year at Sandpiper for Spring Break. It is disappointing...thru the years as you increase your rates, the amount of visitors have declined. A few years ago when you charged $500=$700 for a week at Sandpiper, we had to researve 1 year in advance or there were no rooms available...Gulf Shores was packed and it was lots of fun. Now that you charge $1200 for a one week stay, it is similar to better locations in Florida were the weather is more predictable. We suggest you go back to reasonable prices to fill the town and condos to keep Spring Break affordable and fun. This year was boring and expensive without any value other than sitting in an old condo with a small tv when we had 4 days of rain. Unless your prices drop...we won't be back. Its just not worth spending as much as we do to go to Gulf Shores when I could have better weather and activities and accommodations for a similar price in various spots in Florida.

We love coming to Sandpiper and have for the past 12 years.
The condo we were in this year was not as nice as most we have stayed needed some maintenance and attention. It needed a good cleaning. It simply did not meet the standards we have grown accustomed to at the Sandpiper.
We will be returning to Sandpiper, but will perhaps select another unit.

The Sandpiper is like the old Gulf Shores before the high rises. It's comfortable but not too fancy. Not really quiet and serene but not as busy as some areas. There is always a lot of activity going on for the kids and teens. We loved it!
