I am very disgusted with how sandals has treated me. I am getting married in May and planned my honeymoon months ago for the Barbados Royal resort. We have a travel agent from Liberty travel who is no help. We found out through a friend that Barbados is closed and they are requiring a 3-5 day quarantine in a DIFFERENT resort then we booked. Not only that but it would be in a completely different room then what we payed for. We more more then willing to switch resorts at this time because who wants to spend your honeymoon under house arrest. Because of being so last minute all of the other rooms that were in the club level are either booked or do not compare to our room we originally picked. Because of the circumstances you would think Sandals would be more accommodating and understanding but the only thing i got was a "sorry". My fiancé and i are now going to have to cancel what was supposed to be the most romantic and magical vacation of our lives.

Lynnia-Shamara- & Raesheada our butlers at Sandals Royal Barbados are absolutely amazing. They have each went above and beyond to make sure our experience was one in a million. Outstanding service and will 100% be back again with the butler service. Well worth the money for the personalized services. Thank you girls for an unbelievable experience!!!!!

The hotel was closed for the dates we booked and we aren’t able to reschedule the dates due to work commitments but rather than offering a refund they tried to tell me there is a 50% cancellation fee when the hotel is closed.. so effectively they sold us a holiday which didn’t exist and then made us spend hours trying to get reimbursed. This hasn’t happened and they are claiming it could take 30 days. If you sell something you don’t possess and cannot fulfil and withholds someone money in life this is theft. I would strongly advise waiting for Covid to pass before booking here if you value your hard earned money.

A M A Z I N G food! We got the fish-in-foil each day, sometimes twice a day. Camilla was so fun and upbeat each time we stopped in. It’s right next a beautiful pool with a swim up bar, perfect stagger distance.

This review is for managing Covid reservations and not resort experience. I am reading the bad reviews, not common for Sandals so this is a warning for the company. We are Sandals fans and have stayed at almost most of them. Never before have I had to invest hours on the phone going nowhere to change booking due to various Covid reasons. Our Nov 2020 trip moved to Mar 2021 and now moved to May. Like another reviewer, the resort closed in March (as it should due to the bumpy service few experienced), we were offered 50% cancelation ......blah blah blah. Very disappointing since we didn't cancel, that was a bad move by management. Now I am waiting for Barbados to change their travel policy, we have no interest of quarantining on arrival. We can bring a PCR test, we have now proof of vaccination so another test is not in our plans. Don't need to vacation that bad. Sandals - how you handle customers changing their vacation is very important: - Honor prices that were booked before, don't try to change them, not cool. - Change dates/resort and be flexible, this will go a long way These two things will keep your base. We really don't want to turn our back on you but from 5 star you are down to 3. Keep the big picture in mind please.
