Find Sandals Resorts Emerald Bay…Extensive. Till we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “extensive” and winced. We could not really comprehend why anybody would want to spend their getaway holed up in one resort for days on end. Wouldn’t you wish to get out to see things and eat the regional food? However 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 had to do with.
Back from nearly two 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 couple of things that could be enhanced, however in general the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in an excellent way. We ‘d certainly consider going all-inclusive again and our Sandals Resorts review shows you why you ought to 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 superior alcohol. There are additional fees, which is very clear on the Sandals site, for a few things such as health spa services, off-resort trips and renting a cabana. And that’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 Resorts Emerald Bay
After our very first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we ordered a lattes and provided our space key to the barista only to be told it wasn’t required, I locked my handbag in the safe. We literally needed our essential cards solely to gain access to our room.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level spaces that were embellished similarly 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 discover the bathroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, however the cosmetics mirror was lit so that helped.
The Club Sandals level suggests extra guest facilities such being satisfied 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 residential or commercial property (which is really really helpful if you’ve not been to that Sandals prior to) and a devoted concierge to help with dinner bookings and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also offers 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 home.
Service at Sandals resorts is typically outstanding by Caribbean requirements, and that holds true at this Barbados property. You can expect a can-do attitude and ear-to-ear smiles from all the personnel you encounter. If you stay in among the top-end suites, you will have access to day-and-night service from uniformed butlers trained by the Guild of Expert English Butlers; guests are given a mobile phone pre-set with their number to summon them at any time. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with 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 sophisticated one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon swimming pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other facilities consist of non-motorised watersports, a fitness center and an attractive health club. Visitors at Sandals Barbados also have full access to the centers at the connected Sandals Royal Barbados property, consisting of another health spa complex, more swimming pools (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Personnel arrange daytime activities (volleyball on the beach, water polo etc). The night home entertainment is outstanding, and might consist of bands on a piazza at the entrance to the resort, perky singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer wandering the grounds playing sensual tunes.
