Find Sandals Resorts Barbados…Extensive. Until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-encompassing” and winced.
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, but in general the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in a good way. We ‘d absolutely think about going all-inclusive once 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 included and that you have your choice of premium alcohol. There are extra fees, which is extremely clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as health club services, off-resort trips and leasing a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a stringent no tipping policy, so it’s totally unneeded to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resorts Barbados
After our first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we bought a lattes and presented our room key to the barista only to be told it wasn’t needed, I locked my handbag in the safe. We actually needed our essential cards solely to access our space. After days of simply appearing for our supper booking and merely leaving when we were done, I almost forgot my handbag in the safe when it was time to leave. It was nice.
At both Sandals Resorts, we remained in Club Sandals level spaces that were embellished likewise in British Colonial style. I like the restroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more since it had a separate tub and walk-in shower, and double sinks in the vanity. I did find the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, but the makeup mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level indicates additional guest amenities such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing towels on arrival to the resort, personal check-in which included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the home (which is actually really useful if you have actually not been to that Sandals prior to) and a dedicated concierge to assist with dinner reservations and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also provides a range of board games and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is available throughout the whole residential or commercial property.
Service at Sandals resorts is usually exceptional by Caribbean standards, and that is true at this Barbados property. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of centers, there are three swimming pools– 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 centers consist of non-motorised watersports, a fitness center and an appealing day spa. Guests at Sandals Barbados also have full access to the facilities at the connected Sandals Royal Barbados property, consisting of another 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 evening home entertainment is excellent, and might include bands on a piazza at the entrance to the resort, perky singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer strolling the grounds playing sensuous tunes.
