Stayed the week of Oct 12 to Oct 19 Although the resort was well maintained and clean, the property needs some rejuvenating. The restaurants, décor, and furniture seem vintage. Pros: The beach and ocean are without doubt the nicest in the world Rooms are always clean and tidy Staff are very nice and helpful Santana's Bar and Grill a must... More

My husband and I just returned from our 7 night, 8 day honeymoon stay at Sandals Emerald Bay. We elected to stay in a ocean view villa with butler service. The room had a beautiful view of the ocean from our balcony - the water is so clear and blue! The room was very clean, large shower, and comfortable king... More

My husband and I just returned from SEB. I am first going to start with thanking Ruth Pierce DeMuth and Trip Guy Travel for making this trip possible. Ruth was there from the beginning to answer any questions and plan to make our trip was the best it can be! Like others....I read so many reviews, good and bad. I... More

So my mum was re-marrying..... And I chose this resort after all of the excellent feedback I had. What can I say other than the fact the staff and resort were outstanding. They absolutely took care of everything leaving it stress free for me! Not only that the food and service were second to none in the resturants. Along with... More

The property is beautiful and very well maintained. We were pleased to be in building 7, which is away from the main building and noise. Highly suggest highest floor room with a view of the water - better views as you get further away from the main building. The beach is gorgeous and the water is spectacular. The "quiet pool"... More

My husband and I were looking for a romantic getaway, so we contacted our travel agent Justin from Beach Bum Vacations. After discussing our wishlist, Justin recommended Sandals Great Exuma. So we booked the vacation and just got back two weeks ago. It was the most romantic getaway, even better than our honeymoon!!! We had a butler to help us... More

Just returned from a week at Emerald Bay. Very beautiful location and resort. Having been to other Sandals resorts we knew what to expect and it turned out to be the same - comfortable living, service and food. The menu though should be refreshed. The walk along the beach was idyllic. For a resort that puts luxury included at the... More

Waited 2.5 hours to check in, had lunch and wandered around. Got into room but was above main area with virtually no ocean view and lots of noise. Food good, staff good for the most part, golf course was weak and we tried to dive and fish but too much wind for either activity. Not worth the money.

This was our first visit to the Bahamas and Sandals Emerald Bay didn't disappoint. This was not our first Sandals resort, so we knew what to expect. We had the perfect ocean view (Bay House 1, third floor). I was in awe of the beach, so much of it, long and wide. We never had a problem getting a hut,... More
