Find Sandals Resort Barbados Royal…All-inclusive. Until we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-encompassing” and flinched. We could not really understand why anybody would want to spend their trip holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you wish 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 buzz was about.
Back from almost 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 in general the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in a good way. We ‘d certainly consider going complete again and our Sandals Resorts evaluation shows you why you should too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no constraints on dining, which activities are consisted of which you have your choice of premium alcohol. There are extra fees, which is really clear on the Sandals website, for a few things such as day spa services, off-resort expeditions and renting a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a stringent no tipping policy, so it’s totally unneeded to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resort Barbados Royal
After our first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we bought a lattes and presented our room key to the barista only to be informed it wasn’t needed, I locked my bag in the safe. We literally required our key cards entirely to gain access to our room. After days of just appearing for our dinner reservation and merely leaving when we were done, I almost forgot my purse in the safe when it was time to leave. It was nice.
At both Sandals Resorts, we remained in Club Sandals level rooms that were decorated likewise in British Colonial style. I like the bathroom 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 bathroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the cosmetics mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level implies additional visitor amenities such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, rejuvenating 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 trip of the residential or commercial property (which is in fact 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 provides a range of parlor game and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is readily available throughout the whole property.
