Find Sandals Resort’…All-inclusive. Until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “complete” and flinched. We could not actually understand why anyone would wish 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 invitation 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 almost two weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say that we completely enjoyed our stays at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a number of things that could be enhanced, however overall the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in a good way. We ‘d certainly think about going all-inclusive again and our Sandals Resorts evaluation reveals you why you ought to 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 choice of superior alcohol. There are additional costs, which is very clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as spa services, off-resort trips and leasing a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s completely unnecessary to have money on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resort’
After our first check out to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we ordered a lattes and presented our room secret to the barista only to be informed it wasn’t required, I locked my bag in the safe. We literally required our key cards solely to access our room. After days of simply showing up for our supper 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 rooms that were decorated likewise 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, but the cosmetics mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level indicates additional visitor amenities such being fulfilled on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in that included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the property (which is in fact very beneficial if you’ve not been to that Sandals prior to) and a dedicated concierge to assist with supper bookings and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also uses a range of board games and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is readily available throughout the whole residential or commercial property.
Service at Sandals resorts is usually exceptional by Caribbean requirements, and that is real at this Barbados home. Mid-priced Club Level spaces come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of centers, there are three swimming pools– a dynamic one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the sophisticated one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other centers consist of non-motorised watersports, a health club and an appealing spa. Visitors at Sandals Barbados also have complete access to the centers at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados home, consisting of another health spa complex, more pool (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff set up daytime activities (volley 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 wandering the grounds playing sensual tunes. Sandals Resort’
