Find Sandals Grande Antigua Resort And Spa Virgin Holidays…All-encompassing. Until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “extensive” and winced.
Back from almost two weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say 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 absolutely think about going complete once again and our Sandals Resorts review reveals you why you ought to too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no constraints on dining, which activities are consisted of which you have your choice of superior alcohol. There are extra costs, which is very clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as medical spa services, off-resort excursions and leasing a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s entirely unneeded to have money on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Grande Antigua Resort And Spa Virgin Holidays
After our first check out to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we bought a lattes and provided our space key to the barista just to be told it wasn’t essential, I locked my bag in the safe. We literally required our key cards exclusively to gain access to our space. After days of simply appearing for our supper booking and simply leaving when we were done, I nearly forgot my bag in the safe when it was time to leave. It was nice.
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, however the cosmetics mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level suggests additional visitor facilities such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, revitalizing 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 helpful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a devoted concierge to assist with supper appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge likewise provides a range of board games and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is offered throughout the whole property.
Service at Sandals resorts is usually outstanding by Caribbean standards, and that is true at this Barbados property. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of facilities, there are 3 swimming pools– a vibrant one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the elegant one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other centers include non-motorised watersports, a fitness center and an attractive health club. Visitors at Sandals Barbados also have full access to the facilities at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados home, including another spa complex, more swimming pools (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff organize daytime activities (volleyball on the beach, water polo etc). The night home entertainment is outstanding, and might include bands on a piazza at the entryway to the resort, perky singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax player strolling the grounds playing sensuous tunes.
