I am sitting at the pool area in the night breeze, listening to crickets behind me and the sounds of a sexy saxophone drifting over the night air and just couldn't put off this review any longer. What a nice touch at this beautiful resort! They employ a saxophonist/flutist to play at the pool on Monday nights and it is...

Our trip to this resort (Dec. 5 - 12) was marred with inconsistency, issues and problems from the time we arrived. We traveled with another couple and our expectations are not extreme. For the few trips we take, we stretch our dollars and try to find the best resort with the best amenities we can afford. For our stay at...

Just returned from Sandals Emerald Bay Jan1st to Jan 11th. As we enjoy playing golf everyday, we booked the room level that included the daily golf. Great course with awesome ocean views. We had read the reviews about the terrible food and wondered if something had gone down-hill from our last trip, we did not have one bad meal in...

While we were not in our room often, the room was lovely and always clean and restocked when we returned. The beach is gorgeous - and while it was windy and...

My boyfriend and I came to the Sandals Emerald Bay for New Years, staying Dec 28-Jan 3. Upon arrival, they were very helpful and kind, and gave us a tour of the property that was almost a little too long considering we were tired and wanted to relax in our room after the long flight, but it was a nice...

We stayed there during the summer of 2014. We stayed at a Butler suite and we had Dion, Quenton and Shakera as our Butlers. What a great group of Butlers. Although some started off slow it did get better with time. As for playing golf my husband did this quite often and loved every minute of it. He said that...

Before going on our trip, my wife and I love to read reviews of different things going on and really got caught up on the negative reviews of Sandals Emerald Bay. My suggestion is do not listen to the negative reviews, they are absolutely wrong. We just got back from our trip today, we went from the Jan 4th to...

Beautiful property with the one of the best beaches we have ever been to, the water was the most beautiful blue we have ever seen.
