Find Sandals Resorts Vs Secrets Resorts…All-inclusive. Until we remained at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-encompassing” and flinched.
Back from nearly 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 number of things that could be enhanced, however in general the experience wasn’t at all what we expected– in a good way. We ‘d absolutely think about going all-inclusive again and our Sandals Resorts evaluation reveals you why you must too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no constraints on dining, which activities are consisted of and that you have your pick of superior alcohol. There are extra fees, which is really clear on the Sandals website, for a few things such as medspa services, off-resort expeditions and leasing a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s totally unnecessary to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resorts Vs Secrets Resorts
After our very first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we purchased a lattes and provided our room secret to the barista only to be informed it wasn’t required, I locked my purse in the safe. We actually needed our key cards entirely to gain access to our space.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level spaces that were decorated likewise in British Colonial style. I like the restroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more given that it had a different tub and walk-in shower, and double sinks in the vanity. I did find the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, but the makeup mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level implies extra visitor facilities such being fulfilled on arrival by a Sandals concierge, revitalizing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in which included a signature cocktail or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the property (which is actually really useful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to assist with dinner appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also uses a range of board games and books you can borrow and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is offered throughout the entire home.
Service at Sandals resorts is generally exceptional by Caribbean requirements, and that is real at this Barbados property. Mid-priced Club Level rooms come with access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of facilities, there are three swimming pools– a lively 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 include non-motorised watersports, a gym and an attractive health club. Guests at Sandals Barbados also have complete access to the facilities at the linked Sandals Royal Barbados property, consisting of another spa complex, more pool (one on a rooftop) and an indoor bowling alley.
Personnel set up daytime activities (volleyball on the beach, water polo etc). The evening home entertainment is excellent, and may include bands on a piazza at the entrance to the resort, perky singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer roaming the premises playing sensual tunes.
