Find Sandals Antigua Resort & Spa St. John’s…All-inclusive. Until we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “extensive” and flinched.
Back from nearly 2 weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say that we totally enjoyed our stays at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a couple of things that could be improved, but overall the experience wasn’t at all what we expected– in a good way. We ‘d definitely consider going all-inclusive once again and our Sandals Resorts evaluation reveals you why you ought to too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no limitations on dining, which activities are consisted of which you have your choice of premium alcohol. There are additional costs, which is very clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as health club services, off-resort adventures and leasing a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s entirely unneeded to have money on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Antigua Resort & Spa St. John’s
After our very first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we bought a lattes and presented our room secret to the barista only to be told it wasn’t necessary, I locked my handbag in the safe. We literally needed our key cards solely to gain access to our space. After days of just appearing for our supper reservation and just leaving when we were done, I almost forgot my handbag in the safe when it was time to leave. It was nice.
At both Sandals Resorts, we remained in Club Sandals level spaces that were decorated likewise in British Colonial design. I like the bathroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more because it had a separate tub and walk-in shower, and double sinks in the vanity. I did find the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the make-up mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level implies additional guest facilities such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, revitalizing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in which included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the property (which is really very beneficial if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to assist with supper bookings and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also offers a variety of parlor game and books you can borrow and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is readily available throughout the entire home.
Service at Sandals resorts is normally outstanding by Caribbean requirements, and that is real at this Barbados property. Mid-priced Club Level spaces come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of facilities, there are three pool– a lively one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the classy one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other facilities consist of non-motorised watersports, a fitness center and an attractive medical spa. Guests at Sandals Barbados also have full access to the centers at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados residential or commercial property, consisting of another medical spa complex, more swimming pools (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff arrange daytime activities (volley ball on the beach, water polo etc). The evening entertainment is outstanding, and may consist of bands on a piazza at the entrance to the resort, spirited singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer wandering the grounds playing sensual tunes.
