Find Sandals Ochi Beach Resort-…All-inclusive. Up until we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “extensive” and winced. We couldn’t really understand why anyone would wish to spend their holiday holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you wish to get out to see things and consume the local food? However with an invitation to experience both Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau and Sandals Emerald Bay on Great Exuma, off we visited what all the hype had to do with.
Back from almost 2 weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can state that we totally enjoyed our stays at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a number of things that could be improved, but in general the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in an excellent way. We ‘d definitely consider going all-inclusive again and our Sandals Resorts evaluation reveals you why you need to too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no limitations on dining, which activities are consisted of which you have your choice of premium alcohol. There are extra charges, which is very clear on the Sandals site, for a couple of things such as health club services, off-resort expeditions and renting a cabana. Which’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 Ochi Beach Resort-
After our very first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we bought a lattes and presented our room key to the barista just to be told it wasn’t required, I locked my bag in the safe. We literally required our key cards entirely to access our room. After days of just appearing for our dinner appointment and just leaving when we were done, I almost forgot my handbag 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 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 makeup mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level means extra visitor amenities such being fulfilled on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing 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 trip of the residential or commercial property (which is actually extremely useful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to assist with supper appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also offers a range of parlor game and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is available throughout the whole property.
Service at Sandals resorts is typically exceptional by Caribbean standards, which is true at this Barbados residential or commercial property. You can anticipate a can-do attitude and ear-to-ear smiles from all the staff you stumble upon. If you stay in one of the top-end suites, you will have access to round-the-clock service from uniformed butlers trained by the Guild of Expert English Butlers; guests are provided a mobile phone pre-set with their number to summon them at any time. Mid-priced Club Level rooms feature access to a concierge lounge.
In regards to facilities, there are 3 pool– a lively 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 include non-motorised watersports, a fitness center and an attractive medical spa. Visitors at Sandals Barbados likewise have full access to the facilities at the connected Sandals Royal Barbados property, including another health spa complex, more pool (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff organize daytime activities (volleyball on the beach, water polo etc). The evening home entertainment is excellent, and might include bands on a piazza at the entryway to the resort, perky singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer roaming the grounds playing sensuous tunes.
