Find Sandals Resort With Floating Rooms…Extensive. Until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “extensive” and cringed. We could not really understand why anybody would wish to spend their trip holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you want to get out to see things and eat the regional 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 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 expected– in a great way. We ‘d absolutely consider going complete again and our Sandals Resorts review shows you why you should too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no restrictions on dining, which activities are included which you have your pick of premium alcohol. There are additional costs, which is extremely clear on the Sandals site, for a couple of things such as health spa services, off-resort excursions and renting a cabana. And that’s it.

Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resort With Floating Rooms
After our first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we ordered a lattes and provided our space key to the barista just to be informed it wasn’t essential, I locked my handbag in the safe. We actually needed our crucial cards solely to gain access to our room. After days of just showing up for our dinner booking and merely leaving when we were done, I nearly forgot my purse in the safe when it was time to leave. It was nice.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level spaces that were decorated 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 discover the bathroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the cosmetics mirror was lit so that assisted.
