Find Caraibi Sandals Grande Antigua Resort…Extensive. Until we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “complete” and cringed.
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 improved, but overall the experience wasn’t at all what we expected– in a good way. We ‘d certainly think about going all-inclusive again and our Sandals Resorts evaluation shows you why you must too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no constraints on dining, which activities are consisted of and that you have your pick of superior alcohol. There are additional fees, which is very clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as day spa services, off-resort expeditions and renting a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a rigorous no tipping policy, so it’s completely unnecessary to have money on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Caraibi Sandals Grande Antigua Resort
After our very first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we purchased a lattes and presented our room key to the barista just to be told it wasn’t essential, I locked my bag in the safe. We actually required our crucial cards exclusively to gain access to our room. After days of simply appearing for our dinner appointment and simply leaving when we were done, I nearly 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 rooms that were embellished likewise in British Colonial style. I like the restroom 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 restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the make-up mirror was lit so that assisted.
