The room was nice and spacious. The staff even decorated our room for our 10th anniversary with flowers, bottles of champagne, and a fully stocked bar (which I think is standard actually). The only downside was the candlelight dinner. I would not suggest it. The birds and flies will attack you! We could not even finish it and took our... More

We just finished a week at Sandals Emerald Bay (July 26 -Aug 2) celebrating our Anniversary. This resort is spectacular. The beach and water are absolutely beautiful as was the view from our Beachfront walkout butler suite. The resort grounds are expansive and incredibly well groomed. With over 500 acres this resort never feels crowded. The food and drinks are... More

My husband and I visited July 22-29. This was our second stay at Emerald Bay with five previous stays at Royal Bahamian in Nassau. We were in Building 4 on the second floor with a view of the water. The amazing parts of the week: The water is so beautiful! The grounds are immaculate. The returning guest dinner was just... More

My husband and I stayed at Sandals Emerald Bay last September (a little behind on this review). This was our first trip to a Sandals and my first time to the Bahamas. The Exumas is breath-taking. Pictures do not do it justice. We wanted to stay here because we thought it would be quieter and more relaxing than other parts... More

This was our 6th Sandals vacation. The 2nd year here. We were here July 4th week. When you first arrive the view of the water and beach are breathtaking but the people make the resort. Heston in the piano bar is so much fun. We were there every night he was. Bradley, Nelson, and James at the pool bar are... More

Just returned from a wonderful week at SEB. I read all the reviews prior to traveling to SEB and went with an open mind and somewhat above average expectations. I have learned not to let reviews influence my vacation destination choices. After spending a week in Exuma at SEB I can honestly say this ranks in the top 5 (maybe... More

This is a very favorable review with some reservations and some important advice that I want to share. As a first observation, if you read a slew of Tripadvisor reviews on this resort you will find the vast majority are highly favorable and a very few were disappointed that the resort was not “five star.” It not “five star” but...

My husband and I stayed at Emerald bay in May 2015 for our honeymoon and it was amazing!! Our journey there however, did not go exactly as expected. After arriving to the airport on Nassau, our flight to Exuma was delayed several hours due to storms. The flight was eventually cancelled for the night all together. We had no idea... More

My Husband and I stayed in the Beachfront Walkout Butler Junior Villa Suite at Sandals Emerald Bay between 7/18/15 and 7/25/15. Minimally, with any hotel, I expect things to be clean and in working order especially a "5 star" resort. Sandals surprisingly did not meet these standards and in no way was "5 stars." Shortly after we were brought to... More

Dear Karen, We regret that your stay at Sandals Emerald Bay was not completely as expected. It was very disappointing to learn that you feel your experience this time did not reflect our 5-star standards especially considering that you had many wonderful experiences with us during previous trips. We therefore extend our sincerest apologies if any aspect of your stay... More

My husband took me here for my birthday and it was truly breath taking. Everything about this place is great. The staff was always happy and always helpful. The front desk even helped me set up the WiFi on my phone so I could talk to my kids. The rooms were always clean. I was a little disappointed that our... More
