Find Sandals Resorts Dominican Republic…Extensive. Till we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-encompassing” and flinched. We could not truly understand why anyone would want to spend their getaway holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you want to get out to see things and eat the local food? With an invitation to experience both Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau and Sandals Emerald Bay on Great Exuma, off we went to see what all the hype was about.
Back from nearly 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 couple of things that could be improved, however overall the experience wasn’t at all what we expected– in a great way. We ‘d absolutely think about going all-encompassing once again and our Sandals Resorts review shows you why you must too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no limitations on dining, which activities are consisted of and that you have your pick of exceptional alcohol. There are additional costs, which is really clear on the Sandals site, for a couple of things such as spa services, off-resort adventures and renting a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s entirely unneeded to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resorts Dominican Republic
After our very first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we purchased a lattes and provided our room key to the barista only to be told it wasn’t required, I locked my purse in the safe. We literally required our essential cards exclusively to gain access to our space. After days of simply appearing for our supper appointment and simply leaving when we were done, I nearly 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 rooms that were decorated likewise in British Colonial style. I like the bathroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more since 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, however the make-up mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level suggests extra guest facilities such being fulfilled on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing towels on arrival to the resort, personal check-in which included a signature mixed drink or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the home (which is in fact very helpful if you’ve not been to that Sandals prior to) and a devoted concierge to assist with supper bookings and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also uses a range of parlor game and books you can borrow and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is readily available throughout the whole property.
Service at Sandals resorts is generally outstanding by Caribbean standards, and that is real at this Barbados home. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of centers, there are 3 pool– a dynamic one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the classy 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 health club and an appealing health spa. Visitors at Sandals Barbados also have full access to the centers at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados home, including another medspa complex, more swimming pools (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff arrange daytime activities (volley ball on the beach, water polo etc). The evening home entertainment is outstanding, and may consist of bands on a piazza at the entrance to the resort, spirited singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax player roaming the grounds playing sensual tunes.
