Find Sandals Resort New Zealand…Extensive. Up until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “extensive” and winced.
Back from almost 2 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 enhanced, but overall the experience wasn’t at all what we expected– in a great way. We ‘d definitely consider going all-inclusive again and our Sandals Resorts review reveals you why you should 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 superior alcohol. There are extra fees, which is extremely clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as health club services, off-resort trips and leasing 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 Resort New Zealand
After our first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we bought a lattes and provided our room key to the barista just to be informed it wasn’t necessary, I locked my purse in the safe. We actually required our essential cards exclusively to gain access to our space.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level spaces that were embellished similarly in British Colonial style. I like the bathroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more considering that it had a different tub and walk-in shower, and double sinks in the vanity. I did discover the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the makeup mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level indicates additional visitor features such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, revitalizing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in that included a signature mixed drink or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a trip of the home (which is really really useful if you have actually not been to that Sandals before) and a devoted concierge to help with dinner appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also uses a variety of parlor game and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is offered throughout the entire residential or commercial property.
Service at Sandals resorts is typically impressive by Caribbean requirements, which holds true at this Barbados property. You can expect a can-do attitude and ear-to-ear smiles from all the personnel you come across. If you remain in among the top-end suites, you will have access to round-the-clock service from uniformed butlers trained by the Guild of Expert English Butlers; visitors are provided a mobile phone pre-set with their number to summon them at any time. Mid-priced Club Level rooms include access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of facilities, there are three pool– a dynamic one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the stylish one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other facilities consist of non-motorised watersports, a gym and an attractive day spa. Guests at Sandals Barbados also have full access to the facilities at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados residential or commercial property, including another day spa complex, more pool (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Personnel set up daytime activities (volleyball on the beach, water polo etc). The evening entertainment is exceptional, and might consist of bands on a piazza at the entrance to the resort, perky singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax player strolling the grounds playing sensual tunes.
