Find Sandals Barbados Resort & Spa/ Sandals Royal…All-encompassing. Till we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-encompassing” and flinched. We couldn’t really understand why anyone would want to invest their getaway holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you want to go out to see things and consume the regional food? 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 two weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can state that we completely enjoyed our remain at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a couple of things that could be enhanced, however in general the experience wasn’t at all what we expected– in a great way. We ‘d absolutely consider going all-encompassing 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 consisted of which you have your pick of superior alcohol. There are extra costs, which is extremely clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as spa services, off-resort trips and renting a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a stringent no tipping policy, so it’s totally unnecessary to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Barbados Resort & Spa/ Sandals Royal
After our very first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we purchased a lattes and provided our space secret to the barista just to be told it wasn’t necessary, I locked my handbag in the safe. We literally needed our crucial cards exclusively to gain access to our room.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level spaces that were decorated similarly in British Colonial design. 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, however the make-up mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level implies additional guest features such being satisfied on arrival by a Sandals concierge, revitalizing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in which included a signature mixed drink or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the home (which is actually very beneficial if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a devoted concierge to aid with supper appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also offers a range of board games and books you can borrow and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is readily available throughout the whole home.
Service at Sandals resorts is generally outstanding by Caribbean requirements, which holds true at this Barbados home. You can expect a can-do mindset and ear-to-ear smiles from all the staff you discover. If you remain in among the top-end suites, you will have access to round-the-clock service from uniformed butlers trained by the Guild of Specialist English Butlers; guests are given a cellphone pre-set with their number to summon them at any time. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of facilities, there are three swimming pools– a dynamic one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the elegant 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 appealing day spa. Visitors at Sandals Barbados also have complete access to the facilities at the connected Sandals Royal Barbados property, consisting of another health spa complex, more swimming pools (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff set up daytime activities (beach ball on the beach, water polo etc). The night home entertainment is exceptional, and may consist of bands on a piazza at the entryway to the resort, spirited singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax player roaming the grounds playing sensuous tunes.
