"What a great way to start the Summer"
Returning to this Sandals property is always something to look forward to. As a returning guest, it is like going home again. The staff at this resort is always more than happy to assist with whatever your needs are. Should you upgrade to Butler Service' Well if your butlers are Stanford and Shaw, then the answer is a resounding YES!!! They are professional and always ready to provide whatever service is needed, although we don't ask for much, they are there. You receive a nice room with spectacular views a perfect water. Should you dive when you are here'' Of course. This Sandals has the best dive staff of the 12 or 13 other Sandals we have visited. You will get great dive instruction if needed, great dive locations and guided tours of the best water in the Bahamas. Should you do a diving excursion' Certainly!! We did the Blue Hole dive trip and were treated to the Silky sharks circling everywhere!!! What a great dive. After diving for more years than I care to discuss, this dive ranks as the best of all the years. What a great time!! About food. Well, please try Gordons on the Pier where Andrea and her staff provide an experience to remember forever. The head chef at the resort is always changing the menus so Guests are treated to great food while sitting under the stars. If you have special needs, ask Leroy at Spices and he will make sure that the staff has the right food when you are ready to eat. Just Great!! As always,the Management is available to talk at any time and works hard to ensure that your stay is better than advertised. Where else can you get a great vacation with friendly people waiting to help. I guess that is why we keep coming back each year!!
We went to Sandals Royal Bahamian for our honeymoon, and we could not have chosen a better place! It was absolutely perfect and absolute paradise. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful, all food, drinks, and amenities were included, and the facility is just to die for. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this resort and its staff; they truly made our honeymoon an incredible experience.
"Great hotel, beach amazing... rooms & service not so good"
Such an amazing hotel & location, the beach especially was beautiful. Waters clear & turquoise as your would expect but then come the staff... very slow especially at the pool bar areas. Bordering on rude at times. You ask them for help & it's as if you've asked them something absurd the look they give you in return. Very poor staff. Our choice of room (Balmoral) was poor also. Very basic, I expect a lot more for this type of hotel. But overall the hotel in general makes up for it.
"Best vacation and great service!!"
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and we wish we could've extended our trip! I've been to many all-inclusive resorts where the food is mediocre and the service is okay, but Sandals far surpassed me and my boyfriend's expectations (who by-the-way is completely against all-inclusives and said he would return to Sandals). All of the staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. We loved Baccarat and Gordon's on the Pier! These are a MUST if you stay here. The bartenders were awesome and they made the drinks any way you pleased. There was plenty to do at night and the resort has enough seating options so everyone is accommodated. I read reviews where people said to get up early and reserve beach/pool chairs, but we never had a problem finding a seat, even around 11am, after the pool's been open. The off-shore island was fun and very intimate, however spending one day there was enough for us. Though, if you want to be more secluded, this is definitely the way to go. Ignore the bad reviews because people will find anything to complain about. Again, I highly recommend staying here and would definitely go back. Even if it's only a short trip, it will definitely be worth your while and a trip never to forget!
If you can afford it, get the butler service. We had EXCELLENT butlers: Rohan, Edward, and Lorentino. They were professional, fun, and very helpful. The resort had great food and different activities every night. Definitely take advantage of snorkeling on the offshore island.
