We just returned from Sandals Emerald Bay after an awesome 7 night stay. Everything about this place is beyond perfect and I must say we were so lucky that the weather was equally awesome! Each and every day was green flag on the beach and the ocean was like a lake......with 50 shades of blue! All the staff from the... More

We just returned yesterday and had an amazing time. God blessed us with the ability to go to this resort and gave us the most beautiful weather week. The water here is the most stunningly gorgeous turqouise aquamarine color we've ever seen. The white sand is soft, the water crystal clear, and the curvilinear long stretch of beach was wonderful...

We traveled to SEB for our honeymoon March 13-20. Having never traveled to a Sandals before, we chose this specific location because it was suggested to us by friends and a travel agent. We were NOT disappointed in our choice! Many places are not what is advertised on the website's photos, however SEB is more beautiful than what is shown... More

We visited March 8 to 12 and found the resort to be very relaxing and accommodating. Upon arival at 2pm,we were greeted by the manager,Jeremy Mutton, as he arranged our transportation at the airport. Check in went quickly and we were on the beach by 3:30. We were able to get a third floor room in building 6 as requested.... More

We are avid Sandals fans! For our 15th wedding anniversary we decided Emerald Bay would be the perfect choice.... After Bahamisair flight delay on both segments, we arrived at 9:30 P.M.-originally was to arrive at 12:30 P.M. We were nicely greeted at the airport by a Sandals rep. Once we arrived tired and exhausted from our 12 hours airport time,... More

We've been to 2 other Sandals and Emerald Bay had the worst service. Waited forever on drinks @ the bar, nobody brought drinks on the beach or picked up empty cups. Employees were flat out rude at the Drunken Duck restaurant, didn't want to seat us @ 8:40 bc the regular dinner menu ended and late night started @ 9.... More

Just returned from Exuma and had a great time. The property is beautiful and people are very friendly and accommodating. Food was great. Bar service at the pool was a little slow at times. My only issue was the bugs get you if you don't spray yourself. They supply it you need to use it.

Hi there Robert, Thank you so much for your review. It seems like your stay at Sandals Emerald Bay was fantastic from start to finish and that's exactly what we love to hear! Unfortunately, insects and pests are indigenous to the island and although we make every effort to minimize their presence on property, there are times when they will... More

We just spent a week at the Emerald Bay Golf and after reading all the other reviews, I thought I would put my two cents in. 1. The Food is GOOD, if you don't like something, get something else-its that easy. Make reservation into the French and Italian restaurants...the lasagne's good. The wait staff is superb – Khadejah and Philip... More

My husband and I visited this Sandals Emerald Bay (SEB) in early March 2015. SEB is a large resort with lush and beautifully maintained grounds. If you wear a fitness tracker, you will have no problem reaching a 10,000 step-per-day goal as you walk to meals, the pool, the beach, the spa, etc. Room service is delivered by staff riding...
