Find Sandals Over The Water Resort…All-encompassing. Till we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-encompassing” and winced. We couldn’t truly understand why anybody would want to invest their trip holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you wish to get out to see things and consume the regional food? However with an invite to experience both Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau and Sandals Emerald Bay on Great Exuma, off we visited what all the buzz was about.
Back from nearly 2 weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can state that we fully enjoyed our remain 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 an excellent way. We ‘d absolutely consider going all-encompassing again and our Sandals Resorts evaluation reveals you why you must too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no constraints on dining, which activities are included and that you have your choice of exceptional alcohol. There are additional charges, which is really clear on the Sandals website, for a couple of things such as medical spa services, off-resort excursions and leasing a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s entirely unnecessary to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Over The Water Resort
After our first check out to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we purchased a lattes and provided our space secret to the barista only to be told it wasn’t essential, I locked my purse in the safe. We actually needed our crucial cards solely to gain access to our space. After days of just appearing for our dinner reservation and simply leaving when we were done, I almost forgot my purse in the safe when it was time to leave. It was nice.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level spaces that were decorated similarly in British Colonial design. 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 discover the bathroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, but the makeup mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level indicates additional visitor facilities such being fulfilled on arrival by a Sandals concierge, rejuvenating towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in that included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the property (which is really really beneficial if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a devoted concierge to help with supper appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also provides a variety of parlor game and books you can borrow and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is available throughout the whole property.
Service at Sandals resorts is normally impressive by Caribbean standards, and that is real at this Barbados property. Mid-priced Club Level spaces come with access to a concierge lounge.
In regards to facilities, there are three swimming pools– a vibrant one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the sophisticated one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other centers include non-motorised watersports, a gym and an attractive spa. Guests at Sandals Barbados also have complete access to the facilities at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados residential or commercial property, consisting of another medspa complex, more pool (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
Personnel set up daytime activities (volley ball on the beach, water polo etc). The night entertainment is excellent, and may consist of bands on a piazza at the entryway to the resort, spirited singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer roaming the grounds playing sensuous tunes.
