Find Sandals Resorts Key West…Extensive. Until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “extensive” and flinched.
Back from almost 2 weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can state that we totally 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 certainly think about going all-inclusive once 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 and that you have your pick of superior alcohol. There are extra charges, which is very clear on the Sandals website, for a couple of things such as spa services, off-resort adventures and leasing a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a rigorous no tipping policy, so it’s totally unneeded to have money on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resorts Key West
After our first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we purchased a lattes and presented our space key to the barista just to be informed it wasn’t required, I locked my bag in the safe. We literally needed our crucial cards solely to access our space.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level rooms that were decorated 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 find the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, but the cosmetics mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level suggests additional guest features such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, rejuvenating towels on arrival to the resort, private 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 beneficial if you’ve not been to that Sandals prior to) and a dedicated concierge to help with dinner bookings and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also uses a range of parlor game and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is readily available throughout the entire residential or commercial property.
Service at Sandals resorts is generally impressive by Caribbean standards, which is true at this Barbados home. You can expect a can-do attitude and ear-to-ear smiles from all the personnel you come across. 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 Professional English Butlers; guests are offered 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 facilities, there are 3 pool– a lively one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the stylish one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other facilities include non-motorised watersports, a gym and an attractive health spa. Visitors at Sandals Barbados likewise have full access to the centers at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados home, consisting of another spa complex, more pool (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
Personnel arrange daytime activities (volley ball on the beach, water polo etc). The night entertainment is exceptional, and may consist of bands on a piazza at the entryway to the resort, perky singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer strolling the premises playing sensual tunes.
