Find Sandal’s Resort Jamaica…All-inclusive. Till we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “complete” and cringed. We could not truly comprehend why anyone would want to invest their vacation holed up in one resort for days on end. Would not you wish to get out to see things and eat the local 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 buzz was about.
Back from almost two weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say that we completely 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 absolutely consider going complete 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 exceptional alcohol. There are additional charges, which is extremely clear on the Sandals website, for a few things such as medspa services, off-resort expeditions and renting a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a rigorous no tipping policy, so it’s totally unnecessary to have money on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandal’s Resort Jamaica
After our first check out to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we ordered a lattes and presented our room key to the barista only to be told it wasn’t necessary, I locked my bag in the safe. We literally needed our key cards entirely to gain access to our room. After days of simply appearing for our dinner booking and merely 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 spaces that were embellished likewise in British Colonial design. I like the bathroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more given that 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, but the cosmetics mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level means extra guest facilities such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing towels on arrival to the resort, personal check-in which included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a trip of the property (which is in fact really helpful if you’ve not been to that Sandals prior to) and a dedicated concierge to assist with dinner appointments and off-resort activities.
