Was worried by the weather reports but was not disappointed. Some days were windy, but overall the weather was warm and sunny. The ocean was the most beautiful color I've ever seen. Have been to many all-inclusive resorts, this was my second Sandals vacation and just booked our next trip to Jamaica-Ocho Rios for next February. This resort is beautiful,... More

Emerald Bay Review Summary (see below for more elaboration) We had a great vacation and would definitely recommend the resort. Here are the ‘pluses’: Solid 4 star plus Beautiful, well-kept buildings & grounds, mediterranean seaside villa, rather than “Island style”, though Not at all crowded, though over 90% capacity Comfortable, well-appointed rooms. Descriptions on web are accurate. Excellent beach in... More

We stayed at Emerald Bay from 11/22 thru the 29th, and it was the best and most relaxing vacation we’ve had in 25 years. The entire staff of the property was professional, pleasant, engaging, and more than accommodating. The Butlers Rock ! • They made sure we didn’t need to plan, and worry about anything. Amazing service! Cecil was great... More

Much as the wise old Monkey Rafiki in the Lion King urged Simba, I urge you to look closer before coming here. It seems great from the Sandals website, but the reality is much different. The hotel is tired and in need of serious investment. The promises of 'more luxury inclusions than anywhere else' are lofty and ultimately unfulfilled. Example:... More

What a beautiful place for a vacation. The food is great, the staff is top notch and the golf course is first rate. Rich, the golf pro at the Emerald bay course is a gentleman to be sure and I will always appreciate his advice and courtesy. The bartenders (a special shout out to Nelson) go out of their way...

We enjoyed our wedding and honeymoon and the staff made this such an unforgettable experience! We will return sooner then later if we could move to the island we Def would but we can't wait to visit other sandals!

Beautiful views. Great service. Very safe island. Felt comfortable traveling outside of the resort. Back 9 of the golf course is extremely nice. Front 9 isn't as scenic. We had the butler ocean front villa and the butlers were very accommodating. Anything you want to do, just give them a call and they will make it happen. Can not wait... More

Let me start off by listing the good things about this resort: Golf is amazing, and the course truly is memorable. The beach is one of the best I have ever seen & experienced. The sand is soft & white. The water is a color of neon turquoise that is just breath-taking. The pools are nice too. The service is... More

My wife and I stayed at this Sandals the first week of February. Our hotel room was fine, although some parts could use updating. For instance, the cushion on the seat of our balcony was torn and dirty, but if that was the only issue we faced, my rating would be much higher. The good: The grounds are well-kept. There... More

Let me start by saying, in my opinion, it is almost impossible to give a bad review of the Sandal's resort chain. I find all of their hotels above average with incredibly friendly staff and beautiful facilities. With that said, this wasn't my favourite of all the Sandal's we've stayed at to date. The grounds are beautiful, the staff are... More
