Find Sandals Resort, Jamaica…Extensive. Till we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “extensive” and cringed. We could not actually understand why anybody would wish to spend their trip holed up in one resort for days on end. Would not you wish to go out to see things and consume 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 nearly 2 weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say that we completely enjoyed our remain at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a number of things that could be improved, however overall the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in a great way. We ‘d absolutely think about going all-encompassing once again and our Sandals Resorts review 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 superior alcohol. There are additional charges, which is really clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as health spa services, off-resort expeditions and renting a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s entirely unneeded to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resort, Jamaica
After our very first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we purchased a lattes and provided our space secret to the barista only to be told it wasn’t needed, I locked my handbag in the safe. We literally needed our crucial cards exclusively to gain access to our room.
At both Sandals Resorts, we remained in Club Sandals level rooms that were embellished similarly in British Colonial design. I like the bathroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more given that it had a separate 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 make-up mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level indicates extra visitor features such being fulfilled on arrival by a Sandals concierge, revitalizing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in that included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a trip of the property (which is really extremely useful if you’ve not been to that Sandals prior to) and a devoted concierge to aid with supper appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge likewise provides a range of parlor game and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is offered throughout the entire home.
Service at Sandals resorts is usually impressive by Caribbean requirements, and that is real at this Barbados property. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of facilities, there are three pool– a vibrant one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the sophisticated one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon swimming pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other facilities include non-motorised watersports, a health club and an attractive day spa. Visitors at Sandals Barbados also have complete access to the facilities at the connected Sandals Royal Barbados property, including another spa complex, more pool (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
