I felt our room was amazing with the butler ocean view suite. 2 rooms and 1 main bathroom and a small powder room size bathroom. which was nice when we both were in a rush to get somewhere. The ocean was fabulous, never got deep in the bay like area. No rocks to concern yourself when walking into the water....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

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 --...

This was our sixth Sandals vacation and it did not meet the standards we are used to at Sandals. Diving is unsafe. No roll call was made following the dive. They also did not have a tag board system to make sure everyone returned from their dive. One day they collected all the divers and took them 30 minutes round...

Just what we wanted! Peace and quiet. We didn't do excursions. We laid by the pool, sailed, and ate to our hearts content! There are 11 restaurants. The staff is friendly and make you feel at home. Sandals does it right!

Beautiful property with a gorgeous beach. However, it was unseasonably cool and never reached 80 degrees during our stay. The wind was constant and very strong with "red flag" warnings for 6 out of 8 days preventing water sports. Food is not as good as some of the other Sandals properties. I wish that they had a "Butch's" restaurant. The...

My husband and I stayed at Emerald Bay from 04/15-04/22/2017. We had a beachfront honeymoon butler walkout suite. First of all, the water, yes, it is as pretty as it looks. I never got tired of the views of the ocean. The room itself was very nice, the bed was comfortable and the little patio outside was nice to sit...

This was our first trip to Sandals Emerald Bay and for us, it did not live up to our previous Sandals experience and expectations. We have stayed at Ochi in Jamaica three times and we love it there. We were celebrating my husbands 40th birthday and he chose Exuma to "swim with the pigs". The property is gorgeous and the...

My wife and I visited Sandals Emerald Bay for the first time for two weeks in early April 2017; we have been to four other Sandals resorts before (Cuba, Grande St. Lucian, Grande Antigua, and Whitehouse) and are Platinum members. Here’s a summary of our impressions: Arrival – small airport but fast and efficient processing; taxis wait outside to take...

Needless to say, we truly enjoy this resort and the wonderful staff, starting at the top with GM Jeremy Mutton and including all members of the resort staff. This time, while windy, the food was the best yet and the three new restaurants, especially Soy, were great! If you love a beautiful beach, great golfing and lovely grounds, as well...

This was our second visit to Emerald Bay and it confirmed to us that we have found paradise. Right from the moment we arrived at the airport and were greeted by the Sandals General Manager, we felt like very special guests. That is one of the reasons why this Sandals resort is so special. When we arrived on site we...
