Find Sandals Resort Royal Caribbean…Extensive. Until we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-inclusive” and cringed. We could not really understand why anyone would wish to spend their holiday holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you wish to get out to see things and consume the local food? 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 was about.
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 enhanced, however in general the experience wasn’t at all what we expected– in a great way. We ‘d definitely think about going all-encompassing again and our Sandals Resorts review reveals 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 additional charges, which is really clear on the Sandals website, for a few things such as day spa services, off-resort excursions and leasing a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a rigorous no tipping policy, so it’s entirely unnecessary to have money on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resort Royal Caribbean
After our very first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we ordered a lattes and provided our space secret to the barista only to be told it wasn’t essential, I locked my purse in the safe. We actually needed our key cards entirely to gain access to our room.
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 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, however the makeup mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level suggests extra visitor facilities such being fulfilled on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in which included a signature mixed drink or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the property (which is actually extremely useful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to assist with dinner appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge likewise uses a variety of parlor game and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is offered throughout the whole property.
Service at Sandals resorts is usually outstanding by Caribbean standards, which holds true at this Barbados residential or commercial property. You can expect a can-do mindset and ear-to-ear smiles from all the staff you encounter. If you remain in one of the top-end suites, you will have access to day-and-night service from uniformed butlers trained by the Guild of Specialist English Butlers; guests are given a cellphone pre-set with their number to summon them at any time. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of centers, there are 3 pool– a dynamic 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 include non-motorised watersports, a gym and an appealing day spa. Guests at Sandals Barbados likewise have full access to the facilities at the connected Sandals Royal Barbados residential or commercial property, including another medspa complex, more pool (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Personnel set up daytime activities (volley ball on the beach, water polo etc). The night home entertainment is outstanding, and may include bands on a piazza at the entrance to the resort, perky singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax player wandering the grounds playing sensual tunes.
