A group of 16 of us recently spent a long weekend (Jan 5th-9th) at Sandals in celebration of my 50th birthday. I had this trip planned out almost a year in advance, and all the group plans I had coordinated with Sandals were done on time, smoothly and beyond expectations. We weren't informed that the golf tournament was going on...

Stunning location on edge of beach. Most of the staff are friendly. Great golf course. Golf free but have to hire a buggy (50 dollars ) if you play before 14.30hrs. Rooms are excellent. Food almost always very good and generous portions. Butler service sometimes slow. One of our party waited an hour and a half for burger and fries...

We arrived at Emerald Bay, looking forward to a luxury vacation in the tropics together. We checked in to our room, unpacked, and went right to the lovely quiet pool. After a few hours we returned to our room to an ice cold shower. Brrrr, what a romance buster. We called the front desk and they promised to call us...

We visited Sandals Emerald Bay last week with 6 other couples for a friend's 50th birthday. Overall the trip was fabulous and the hotel was wonderful. First we opted for a butler room, which I would definitely do again. We stayed in the Beach Front Walkout Butler room. The room was beautiful and one of our two butlers was superb....

Don't hesitate to go! I was skeptical about the Sandals property, but we were not disappointed. The staff was great. We got a butler room and honestly didnt use the butler at all. They did set up a nice bathtub for me with bubbles and flowers. Other than that, the room was spacious and clean. We loved the island. The...

This was a very relaxing resort! The staff, property, restaurants, beach and pools were amazing! You can definitely make the vacation what you want it to be. I'm sure you could find some nit-picky issues, but for the most part everything was wonderful and we had a wonderful time relaxing by the pool, playing in ocean, snorkeling, eating, drinking and...

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...
