My husband and I went to this resort for 4 nights as a getaway from the kids. It was a very disappointing experience. I've known several couples that have gone to this resort in the past and raved about it which made it even more frustrating. The service was just appalling. It took 3 hours to get into our room...

My husband and I just returned from Sandals last night. We travel every year and are not picky people but this was by far our most disappointing vacation. We vacation in the Riviera every year and for less money a balcony or patio is a given as well as a welcomning staff. We arrived day one and were sent to... More

After a 10 hour flight we received a warm welcome, music ,cool drink and a speedy check in. Our room was a concierge oceanview and we had the view ,nice bedroom, separate area for our clothes and a vanity unit outside of the bathroom. The room was always cleaned in the morning and the only complaint we could fine was... More

I've been to the sandals royal bahamian for 3 years straight now. I am not a world traveler but have been all over the US, London, Romania, Bulgaria, Puerto Rico, and the Royal Bahamian ROCKS! If you don't want a bunch of screaming kids around you are all set. If you don't want to hang out with the golf set... More

We got married in 1988 and honeymooned in Jamaica at Sandals Montego Bay. Over the years, we have been to Saldals 7 times, the last to SRB in 2005. It looks like that was the last time the room i got received anything more than a precursory cleaning. But I will get to that...... We paid about $475 a night... More

I really have to admit i was concerned about chosing Sandals after reading all the bad reviews. i'm used to very high end travel and was concerned that Sandals would not live up to that. That being said, it is an all inclusive and if you true luxury that is not usually the way to go. However, Sandals was amazing!!... More

What a complete Joke - how sandals can possibly advertise themselves as the 'luxury included vacation' is beyond me, if they were based in the UK they would be charged the Trade Descriptions Act! As for "Adults Only" that is also a misconception there were kids at the hotel and on the beach which is not what you want, we... More

This was our third Sandals vacation and they just keep getting better and better. The Royal Bahamian lives up to its billing in every way. From the Select Members welcome dinner (the lobster and beef tenderloin were magnificent!) to the sun-soaked off-shore island where the friendliest staff ever took care of our libations, we had a most memorable anniversay. We... More

First let me say that the property and beach is great and the staff is very friendly! But… While my wife and I have travelled extensively for both business and pleasure in all parts of the world and we get “island time”, the service at Sandals Royal Bahamian is inexcusable. Sandals is very class conscious and the service you receive... More

Just returned from SRB on 2/27 (stayed for 6 nights). We had an amazing trip! I believe that others who posted negative reviews on this site did not do their research before they went. No, Sandals is not a five star resort by U.S. standards. If you’re looking for a true 5-star experience, go for the Ritz Carlton resorts. At... More
