Find Sandals Luxury Resort Barbados…Complete. Up until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-inclusive” and winced.
Back from almost two weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can state that we fully enjoyed our stays at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a couple of things that could be improved, however overall the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in a great way. We ‘d definitely consider going all-inclusive again and our Sandals Resorts review reveals you why you must too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no limitations on dining, which activities are included and that you have your choice of premium alcohol. There are additional charges, which is really clear on the Sandals website, for a couple of things such as health club services, off-resort expeditions and renting a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a stringent no tipping policy, so it’s entirely unneeded to have money on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Luxury Resort Barbados
After our first check out to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we bought a lattes and presented our space key to the barista just to be told it wasn’t necessary, I locked my bag in the safe. We actually required our key cards exclusively to gain access to our room. After days of simply showing up for our supper reservation and just 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 spaces that were embellished likewise in British Colonial style. I like the bathroom 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 bathroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the make-up mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level means additional guest amenities such being satisfied on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in which included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a trip of the property (which is actually extremely useful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to help with supper appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also uses a variety of parlor game and books you can borrow and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is readily available throughout the entire property.
Service at Sandals resorts is generally impressive by Caribbean standards, and that is true at this Barbados residential or commercial property. You can anticipate a can-do mindset and ear-to-ear smiles from all the personnel you come across. If you remain in one of the top-end suites, you will have access to day-and-night service from uniformed butlers trained by the Guild of Professional English Butlers; visitors are given a cellphone pre-set with their number to summon them at any time. Mid-priced Club Level spaces come with access to a concierge lounge.
In regards to facilities, there are 3 pool– 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 facilities include non-motorised watersports, a gym and an attractive health club. Guests at Sandals Barbados also have complete access to the facilities at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados residential or commercial property, including another spa complex, more swimming pools (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Personnel arrange daytime activities (beach ball on the beach, water polo etc). The evening home entertainment is excellent, 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.
