First, this is our fourth Sandals (Bahamian, Whitehouse, Antigua) in as many years. Obviously, we have positive experiences and choose to return - albeit to different properties - to keep exploring the beautiful islands of the Caribbean. I would summarize this as another success. With only a third of the resort capacity, many of the venues, beachfront, spa, etc seemed... More

Have stayed all over Europe and Caribbean, nothing beats this Sandals resort. Was skeptical at first about staying in what I thought would be a cheesy resort. I'm happy to say that I was wrong. The whole experience has been about quality, not quantity. Just before Christmas has to be the perfect time to come. Will definitely be a repeat... More

I first want to say that before travelling to Exuma and staying at Sandals Emerald Bay I was a little worried because of some of the reviews I had read. But now after staying there I really have to ask those people who gave terrible reviews...."where are you used to staying???" If you think this was terrible, I really have... More

Built as a Four Season the setting is beautiful, especially the Gardens. Excellent food in French and Italian restaurant, more average in the others. The Pizza is very debatable... Golf course is very nice but tight, bring lots of balls (very expensive there). Scuba is average, maybe because of season. Best Scuba season is May to September. In December it... More

This is one of many Sandals resorts that my husband and I have visited. We stayed in an oceanfront butler villa. The villa was very nice with a great view but the overall value for the high price paid for butler service was not a good value. The service at this Sandals Resort was very inconsistent and lacking overall. The... More

So, we've stayed at the Beaches Turks and Caicos resort two years running prior to our anniversary trip to Great Exuma (Sandals Emerald Bay). I have to say that Turks and Caicos does have this beat but it was a beautiful resort nonetheless. I don't want to be negative because we had a great time, the grounds were gorgeous as... More

We stayed at the SEB middle November. The grounds, buildings, rooms are very well taken care of and comfortable. The beach and water are great, second only to Turks and Caicos which is amazing, could use more cabanas on the beach, the umbrellas are small positioned all in a row in front of the sand dunes so you are limited...

My Husband and I stayed here from Dec 7 - 14th. We had great weather although it is a bit on the cooler side (Still warm but not blistering hot and humid) this time of year and can be a bit windy some days, so just a side note incase you are wondering when to book. Overall we would go... More
