Find Sandals Grande St. Lucian All-inclusive Resort Spa & Golf…Extensive. Until we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-inclusive” and flinched. We couldn’t really understand why anyone would want to invest their getaway holed up in one resort for days on end. Would not you want to get out to see things and eat the local food? With an invite to experience both Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau and Sandals Emerald Bay on Great Exuma, off we went to see what all the hype was about.
Back from almost 2 weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say that we totally enjoyed our remain at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a number of things that could be enhanced, however overall the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in a great way. We ‘d definitely consider going all-encompassing again and our Sandals Resorts evaluation reveals you why you should too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no limitations on dining, which activities are included and that you have your pick of premium alcohol. There are additional fees, which is very clear on the Sandals site, for a couple of things such as medspa services, off-resort adventures and renting a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s totally unneeded to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Grande St. Lucian All-inclusive Resort Spa & Golf
After our first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we ordered a lattes and provided our space secret to the barista only to be told it wasn’t necessary, I locked my purse in the safe. We actually needed our essential cards solely to gain access to our room. After days of just appearing for our supper appointment 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 remained in Club Sandals level spaces that were embellished similarly in British Colonial design. I like the bathroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more since it had a different tub and walk-in shower, and double sinks in the vanity. I did discover the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the make-up mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level indicates additional visitor features such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, revitalizing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in that included a signature mixed drink or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the home (which is actually very beneficial if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to help with supper bookings and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also uses a variety of board games and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is available throughout the whole residential or commercial property.
Service at Sandals resorts is usually impressive by Caribbean standards, and that is real at this Barbados residential or commercial property. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
In regards to centers, there are three pool– a vibrant one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the stylish one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon swimming pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other centers consist of non-motorised watersports, a fitness center and an attractive day spa. Visitors at Sandals Barbados also have complete access to the centers at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados property, consisting of another health club complex, more pool (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Personnel organize daytime activities (volley ball on the beach, water polo etc). The night home entertainment is outstanding, and may consist of bands on a piazza at the entryway to the resort, spirited singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer wandering the grounds playing sensuous tunes.
