This was our first stay at a Sandals' resort and we were mostly very pleased with the experience. The food at the specialty restaurants was excellent and at the other restaurants it was very good. We enjoyed the pool and the activities offered at the pool, but the snorkeling excursion was quite disappointing. The resort took us to a couple...

Thank you for your review of Sandals Emerald Bay, Paulette. We are pleased that your stay was enjoyable overall and that you had a great time relaxing with us in Exuma. However, it seems you were not pleased the snorkeling sites and we do apologize if the locations were not thriving with it's normally rich marine life or if you...

My wife and I spent the week from December 25th to January 1st at Sandals Emerald Bay, and we had a wonderful week! The resort was great and the weather perfect! Transfers to the resort from the airport were pleasant, quick and efficient. We were graciously greeted at the resort, and check in was relatively quick and easy. We were...

This Sandals was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I have been to several other Sandals Resorts but Emerald Bay was truly the closest to "Paradise" in beauty! The grounds of the resort are impeccably groomed. The on-site golf course and its views of the ocean are breathtaking. Our villa was so conveniently located very close to the large pool and...

I don't normally do all-inclusives, but in Exuma you really don't have much choice as the island is not very developed and there aren't really many restaurants or places to go to on the island. As others have said, there are pluses and minuses here. We stayed in a really nice room with the butler service (more on the butlers...

We had high expectations after staying at another Sandals (Sandals Grande St. Lucia) a couple of years ago. There were many "little things" that built up making our stay OK, instead of good or great. I read a lot of reviews prior to our stay, and wasn't sure what to expect as the reviews are very mixed! Some things were...

This was our seventh sandals vacation and was our favorite Sandals vacation so far. Waking up every morning to a beautiful sunrise was a great way to start our day. The beach was beautiful, the golf course was one of the best I have played and I have played many great golf courses around the world. The service was exceptional...

We honeymooned here 12/27 -1/3 and we were sad to leave. The resort is well manicured, a short ride from the airport and the staff are exceptionally friendly making sure every need is met.
