Find Sandals Resort Ocho Rios…Complete. Till we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “complete” and winced. We could not really comprehend why anybody would want to spend their holiday holed up in one resort for days on end. Would not you wish to go out to see things and consume the regional food? However with an invitation to experience both Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau and Sandals Emerald Bay on Great Exuma, off we went to see what all the buzz had to do with.
Back from almost two weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say that we fully 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 anticipated– in a great way. We ‘d definitely think about going all-inclusive again and our Sandals Resorts review reveals you why you should too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no restrictions on dining, which activities are consisted of which you have your pick of exceptional alcohol. There are extra charges, which is very clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as health club services, off-resort excursions and renting a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s completely unnecessary to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resort Ocho Rios
After our first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we purchased a lattes and presented our room key to the barista only to be told it wasn’t essential, I locked my handbag in the safe. We literally required our essential cards solely to gain access to our room. After days of simply appearing for our supper reservation and simply leaving when we were done, I nearly forgot my handbag 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 embellished similarly in British Colonial style. 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 bathroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the cosmetics mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level indicates extra guest amenities 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 trip of the property (which is in fact really helpful if you’ve not been to that Sandals prior to) and a dedicated concierge to aid with supper bookings and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge likewise offers a range of board games and books you can borrow 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 normally outstanding by Caribbean requirements, which holds true at this Barbados home. You can expect a can-do attitude and ear-to-ear smiles from all the staff you stumble upon. If you stay in one of the top-end suites, you will have access to round-the-clock service from uniformed butlers trained by the Guild of Specialist English Butlers; guests are provided a cellphone pre-set with their number to summon them at any time. Mid-priced Club Level rooms feature access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of centers, there are 3 swimming pools– a lively one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the classy 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 health club and an attractive spa. Visitors at Sandals Barbados likewise have full access to the facilities at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados residential or commercial property, including another health spa complex, more pool (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
Personnel arrange daytime activities (beach ball on the beach, water polo etc). The night 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 player roaming the grounds playing sensual tunes.
