Find Sandals Royal Bahamian All Inclusive Resort & Private Island…All-encompassing. Until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “complete” and flinched. We could not truly understand why anyone would wish to spend their getaway holed up in one resort for days on end. Would not you want to get out to see things and consume the local food? But 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 hype was about.
Back from nearly 2 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 improved, however overall the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in a great way. We ‘d absolutely 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 limitations on dining, which activities are included which you have your pick of premium alcohol. There are additional charges, which is really clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as health spa services, off-resort trips and renting a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a stringent no tipping policy, so it’s completely unnecessary to have money on hand.

After our very first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we bought a lattes and presented our space secret to the barista just to be told it wasn’t needed, I locked my purse in the safe. We literally required our key cards entirely to gain access to our room.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level rooms that were embellished likewise in British Colonial style. I like the restroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more considering that 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 cosmetics mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level implies extra visitor amenities such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing towels on arrival to the resort, personal check-in which included a signature mixed drink or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a trip of the home (which is actually very helpful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to help with dinner appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also provides 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 generally impressive by Caribbean requirements, and that is real at this Barbados home. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of centers, there are 3 swimming pools– a dynamic 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 health club and an attractive health club. Visitors at Sandals Barbados likewise have full access to the facilities at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados residential or commercial property, consisting of another medical spa complex, more swimming pools (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff arrange daytime activities (beach ball on the beach, water polo etc). The evening home entertainment is exceptional, and might include bands on a piazza at the entrance to the resort, spirited singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax player strolling the premises playing sensual tunes.
