This was our second time to the resort. We were there in 2011 when the resort was fairly new. We did have the butler service which made for a stress free and laid back environment. In speaking with others however, although they did not have butler service, their experience was still awesome. The beach is quite long in comparison to...

What an awesome place. Exactly what we were looking for and expected...relaxing, quiet, laid back and beautiful! This was our first Sandals trip and trip to the Bahamas...we have already booked to go back! We choose to do a Jr Honeymoon 1 bedroom Oceanview suite with Butler. The room was very well kept, spacious bedroom and separate sitting room, 2...

Stayed here for a week during our honeymoon. Incredibly laid back, relaxed atmosphere in a remote location. If you want privacy and relaxation on your honeymoon / vacation, this is the place for you. If you are a person who likes to get out and explore / be active, you might want to look elsewhere. This resort is a typical...

Garth the butler was professional and wonderful. Andeeka the server whom we had on multiple occasions was the best there is! Tevin and Moseen were also fabulous. Kenny the photographer was...

We chose Sandals Emerald Bay for our 25th wedding anniversary vacation. It was our third visit to this resort. We decided on this place for 2 reasons...golf and beach. Upon arrival at the resort we were greeted with nice smiles and music from a live band. We were escorted to the Concierge lounge where we proceeded to do the online...

We stayed here for 5 nights Feb 18-23. We arrived at this sandals after spending 4 nights at the Royal Bahamian in Nassau. Arriving at Georgetown airport to find my luggage didn't arrive. Once I sorted this with the airline I went to find the sandals desk. We were greeted with cold waters and 2 lovely gentlemen. Was a short...

Our stay was from Jan 19th - 26th 2017. We couldn't be happier with this trip! Nearly everything about it was perfect! Great food, rooms, staff. The water was phenomenal! We stayed in a Walkout butler ocean view suite, one of the rooms at the main buildings on the ground level. The view was nice right from our room. It...

This resort was flawless! From the rooms, to the service, to that "to die for" beach and turquoise water, it was everything and more than we could have asked for! I have never seen water so clear! My husband and I have even joked that all other beach vacations will be ruined for us because none will be able to...

I was remiss in not getting on Sandals Loop while at the resort to review our experience and to give credit to many of the Sandals employees, so I will take the time to do this within this review. This was my husband's and my first time at a Sandals resort. We generally have disliked anything "all-inclusive" simply because the...

Sandals Emerald Bay Airport. Absolutely the smallest international airport with passenger service I have ever seen. Our flight was the only one arriving at the time we got there, so processing through Customs was a breeze and they only had two agents. I am accustomed to long lines zig-zagging back and forth and taking up to 30 minutes to get...
