This place is the most beautiful place you will ever go. The hotel staff are wonderful. Always with a smile and willing to do anything ask. The food is really amazing at any of the restaurants on the grounds. This is truly the best place anybody could go.

We just returned from a week at this property. We attended the Chairman's Invitational Golf Tournament and had a fantastic time. The golf staff were wonderful, especially Kevin, the golf pro and Rich, the assistant golf pro. They had lots of activities planned and were such fun to be around. Kevin kept us entertained the entire time while having his... More

I will start with the positive. The resort grounds are very nice, the beach was ok (lots of seaweed) but water was ok. The rooms are very nice and stocked daily with average liquor and refreshments. The staff was a hit and miss, some nice some not so much. Now for the disappointing part. The food. It was pretty bad.... More

My husband and I vacationed here for 5 nights in late August, along with another couple. It was our first trip to an all inclusive resort and the Bahamas. We had a Beachfront Walkout suite with Butler service. We booked this mainly for the room, as we wanted to be as close to the ocean as possible - the Butler... More

The Hotel property it self was very nice and the food was ok. I could tell some of the staff at the resturant's were not really happy to be serving us some of the night's that we ate there. I have been to Sandals in St. Lucia and that place was 5 star service and the staff was very nice... More

This is one of best holiday destinations I have ever been to (and I have been lucky enough to go to quite a few stunning places over the years). The colour of the ocean is amazing and the water is so warm and clear. I saw a variety of fish including Barracudas. The resort at night is lovely and lit... More

We were here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, along with our friends who celebrated their's back in June. It was our 70th night paid stay and our friends first Sandals. We were impressed with the friendless of the staff, the food was fantastic too. Loved the Italian restaurant more than the French. The only complaint is there could have... More

This is one of the most beautiful properties that I have ever seen. The landscaping is really landscape artistry, the beach is beautiful, and there is a gorgeous view around every corner. We visited in the off season, so nothing was crowded, and it sometimes seemed that we had the property to ourselves. Because the property is so large and... More

First off , this was our first time with butlers. I don't remember how much extra we paid but it was worth it. The butlers do a good job of keeping you fed , and with drinks. We spent most time at the quiet pool, there is no wait staff there, even though Patrick the food manager told us "every... More

We visited SEB arriving at Noon on a Sunday and departed on a Wednesday morning. Easy Peasy to maneuver the airport and the resort transfer. Champagne is offered by white-gloved waiter upon arrival - nice touch! I did not know to pack our swimsuits in our carry-on bag to change in to upon arrival due to our room not being... More
