Find Ironshore Montego Bay Jamaica Sandals Resort…Complete. Till we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-encompassing” and flinched. We couldn’t really comprehend why anybody would want to spend their trip holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you want to go out to see things and eat the regional food? However 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 buzz had to do with.
Back from almost two weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say that we completely enjoyed our remain 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 expected– in a good way.

Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Ironshore Montego Bay Jamaica Sandals Resort
After our first check out to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we ordered a lattes and presented our space key to the barista just to be told it wasn’t required, I locked my handbag in the safe. We literally needed our essential cards solely to access our room. After days of simply showing up for our supper appointment 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 remained in Club Sandals level rooms that were decorated similarly in British Colonial design. I like the restroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more because 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 make-up mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level means additional visitor facilities such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, rejuvenating towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in that included a signature mixed drink or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the home (which is actually extremely useful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to assist with dinner appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge likewise offers a variety of board games and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is offered throughout the entire property.

Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
