Amy has coordinated all of our trips to Sandals Emerald Bay, and we would not even consider going without using her services. On this trip,...

This resort was absolutely beautiful. It was impeccably designed and maintained. We stayed in the Bay House buildings which all faced the ocean. Our room was clean, the bed great, and we took advantage of the pillows menu! They have a well stocked mini bar and great spa toiletries. There was daily cleaning and turn down service. The food was...

i just want you to know the beach is absolutely stunning. I honesty don't think you can find prettier water and I traveled to many places. This is a resort for people that want to just relax and take in the beautiful beach. I would recommend going with the 1/2 day tour with Sandals. Yes you can go off property...

My now husband booked this resort for our honeymoon. The location was a surprise to me and I definitely was not disappointed! As soon as you land in Exuma, Sandals had transportation waiting for you and there is no need to worry about your bags. As soon as you arrive you are given champagne and the check in is a...

This amazing beach has a long stretch of white sand, not oddly enough, on an emerald bay. Its shallow, safe and has fish that will eat bread right from your hand. The next thing I noticed was the amazing "Garden of Eden" like grounds throughout the property. You will hardly notice the 20+ employees constantly tending to the gardens within...
