Where do I start..flying into Exuma the water from the plane was beautiful! The airport was so tiny!!! It only took 15 minutes to get to resort. Very laid back when you get there. The water looks exactly like the pictures! The beach house is where we stayed and it was so nice! Drunken Duck was our favorite also. I...

We stayed at Sandals Emerald Bay for one week at the end of March 2017. The beach is just stunning and the service is very good. We had a wonderful stay, and having been to many Sandals properties, we would have to rate this one as just beautiful to behold. We would return to this property with no hesitation --...

On vacation at sandals Emerald Bay. Ate dinner at the Drunken Duck twice. Drunken Duck is great especially with my wife and Jamal. Jamal's the greatest. Come visit and you will love it. Golf is great. Ask for Jamal.

Amazing view and water while landing. The airport is so tiny and cute! The resort is about 15 min from the airport. The resort is beautiful, quite and full of places to eat and night entertainment. The beach has soft white sand and very blue water. We stayed in H1BO which is a butler suite located near everything. It was...

Just returned from a 10 day visit to Great Exuma. Beautiful grounds and views. The friendliest staff that we have met from any if the Sandals we have been to. Garth and Jackson were our butlers and they were fantastic. They made our trip so special showing up with drinks and snacks before we asked. They filled our room with...

Stayed at this resort last week, not our first Sandals. The butlers we're amazing and the grounds were well kept. My disappointment came with the swim up pool which was unheated and cold. The small quiet pool was heated some but was like a cemetery . This is the largest feature on the resort and was unusable to 95% of...

The staff was great. The food was great. The weather was windy, but that's just mother nature. But you pay a lot of money to stay at this resort and to have a cold pool is inexcusable. Not one was hardly in the pool. The pools and hot tubs were poorly maintained. Scum, etc. floating at one side. The bubbles...

This was my 3rd visit to SEB. I absolutely love it there. I do not feel the need to go to any other Sandals properties. With that being said....I will begin with the staff. From the time you step off the plane Sandals staff are waiting. This year Jeremy Mutton was checking us in very nice man. As soon as...

I had been eagerly awaiting this vacation for nearly a year and a half, so expectations were certainly pretty high. Emerald Bay was our 4th Sandals vacation (SRB, Ochi, SRC). I am a HUGE fan of the all inclusive experience, where all you need to do is show up and have a good time. That said, perhaps we should have...

“If you want a quiet room, chose one of the buildings at the ends of the resort, e.g., bldgs. 1, 2, 8, or 9.”
