Find Sandals Resorts Australia…Extensive. Until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “complete” and flinched. We couldn’t actually comprehend why anyone would wish to spend their vacation holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you want to get out to see things and consume 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 2 weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say that we totally enjoyed our remain at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a number of things that could be improved, but overall the experience wasn’t at all what we expected– in a great way. We ‘d certainly 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 which you have your choice of exceptional alcohol. There are extra fees, which is extremely clear on the Sandals website, for a couple of things such as medical spa services, off-resort adventures and renting a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a stringent no tipping policy, so it’s totally unnecessary to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resorts Australia
After our first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we ordered a lattes and presented our room secret to the barista only to be told it wasn’t required, I locked my bag in the safe. We literally required our essential cards exclusively to access our room. After days of simply showing up for our dinner 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 rooms that were embellished similarly in British Colonial style. I like the restroom 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 make-up mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level means additional guest features such being satisfied on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing towels on arrival to the resort, personal check-in that included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the residential or commercial property (which is actually extremely useful if you have actually not been to that Sandals prior to) and a dedicated concierge to aid with dinner reservations and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also provides a range of parlor game and books you can obtain and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is readily available throughout the whole residential or commercial property.
Service at Sandals resorts is normally outstanding by Caribbean standards, and that is real at this Barbados home. Mid-priced Club Level spaces come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of facilities, there are three 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 health club. Visitors at Sandals Barbados also have complete access to the facilities at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados residential or commercial property, including another day spa complex, more pool (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff organize daytime activities (volley ball on the beach, water polo etc). The evening home entertainment is outstanding, and might include bands on a piazza at the entrance to the resort, spirited singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer wandering the premises playing sensual tunes.
