This was our third time traveling to a Sandals Resort. My husband and I previously vacationed at Sandals Negril and Montego Bay. The customer service and willingness to help is MUCH better in Jamaica than in the Bahamas. At the two resorts in Jamaica we had beach service where people would wait on us, refill our drinks, and even grab...

We can't say enough great things about Sandals Emerald Bay. The location was beautiful, white sandy beaches, crystal blue water, and perfect weather, in December. An added bonus to this is the amazing staff at the resort. While everyone was extremely nice and pleasant, there were a few individuals that made or trip especially wonderful. Shanell at the concierge desk,...

While staying at the Sandals Royal Bahamian I took the opportunity to visit Sandals Emerald Bay on Exuma, with the "stay at one, play at any" policy that Sandals has. The airfare was only $140.00 roundtrip from Nassau and a short 35 minute flight. The Resort picked me up at the airport for the approximately 20 minute drive to the...

We arrived at 4 pm after a long journey expecting to have dinner place to go to only to be explained that the hotel during the holidays was only at 40 percent occupancy so many places were closed. Okay that sucks, the only place at 4 to get a bite to eat was a onsite pizza place. We didn't want...

A lovely place in a stunning location. There are some very subtle things that let them down which were things such as not being picked up from the Airport when we got here. Reception failing to book a table when we asked which was a real shame. If reception could get on the money this would be a stunning place...
