Food is worse than my $800/week Cuba resort, and although I paid for the butler service, they didn't have anything I wanted. I brought my own float with me, they can't find a inflator for me even if it's a beach resort!

It was our first time staying at sandals. Beautiful place located by the beach. Everything was arranged for us right from the airport. They had a van taking us from the airport to the resort. Great food, wonderful staff. Very helpful. We went to see the swimming pigs n fed the iguanas. Gorgeous Greg Norman golf course, very challenging. Book...

The resort itself is beautiful and I have no complaints about the actual resort, other than the room we had was not the best. The beach is awesome , the pools are great. After planning for months we finally decided on Emerald Bay. When we arrived, our room was not ready. Once we did get to the room we were...

Other than the check in process the facility is perfect. Great food, drinks, heated quiet pool, deserted beach amazing golf course, very accommodating staff. Dinner in French restaurant was very good although they needed some music. It was almost empty in there and a little awkward but food and service were spot on. Had a candle lit dinner on the...

So, the web.com tour was there, nothing to see because I just don't like to watch others play. The wind was up with may activities cancelled but body surfing was on tap . That lies with the almighty and I give you guys a pass on this. Property is better than ever with new planting and painting and stuff like...

This resort did not live up to the Sandals brand. It was a huge disappointment for us. It didn't help that we were not notified ahead of time that there was a golf event going on and the resort would be overrun with golfers and NBC TV crew (mostly men). It was not a couples only get away. It would...

Just spent a week at this resort and it was amazing. We wanted somewhere that we could just chill and relax. Didn't want to be pressured. Had 3 butlers through out the the week and I am sooo glad that we chose the butler upgrade. I am not BIG fan of burning up in the sun so it was great...

The resort itself is beautiful, the staff were all incredible. We were very disappointed when we arrived after 1 PM to find our room was not ready. Once we did get to our room, it seemed they rushed to get it ready. No robes were provided, there was an issue with the air conditioning, the shade on the window was...

This was our first time to any Sandals property and, after speaking to others who have been to multiple Sandals, this is among their favorites. We have stayed at two Secrets in Mexico (Hualtuco and Riveria Maya) and we prefer Sandals to the Hualtuco Secrets for sure. Emerald Bay Beach in Exuma is a crescent shaped, wide and clean beach....

We stayed at Sandals Emerald Bay from January 1 to 8, which actually ended up being January 9th, as we could not fly out on January 8th due to high wiinds and poor visibility at the airport. Sandals and Air Canada coordinated and provided us all back at the hotel with accomodations for the extra night at no cost. Much...
