After our first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we purchased a lattes and provided our room key to the barista just to be informed it wasn’t essential, I locked my purse in the safe. We literally needed our essential cards exclusively to gain access to our space. After days of just appearing for our dinner booking and just leaving when we were done, I nearly forgot my bag in the safe when it was time to leave. It was nice.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level rooms that were decorated likewise in British Colonial design. I like the restroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more because it had a different tub and walk-in shower, and double sinks in the vanity. I did find the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, but the make-up mirror was lit so that helped.
