My husband and I stayed at Sandals Emerald Bay from April 3-10, 2015. This was our second visit at Sandals Emerald Bay and we felt compelled to write this review for many reasons. The high level of service, the overwhelmingly friendly staff and the attention to detail by the management staff to make Reunion Week such a spectacular part of... More

My husband and I just returned from 7 days at SEB. This was our 10th trip and we received our free one at returnees dinner. Before I say anymore, I think I should mention we are in our mid sixties and have been married for 44 years. The beach is by far the most beautiful we have seen except for... More

We went ot Sandals Emerald Bay for our Honeymoon in October 2014. We've been to 6 Sandals resorts and this by far is the best of all. Everything that you love about Sandals has been added to this one resort. It feels luxorious in every way. You will fall in love with the beach and the water. It's truly incredible.... More

We were at Sandals Emerald Bay April 2-9th. We stayed in an oceanfront honeymoon butler suite on the 2nd floor. We loved the room and the view was awesome. I have never seen water this colour before and against the white sand it's mesmerizing. Our butlers Garth, Arielle and Cecil were fantastic. They always went above and beyond from bringing... More

This was our first trip to Sandals and we have already booked again for next year. We stayed in the Beachfront Honeymoon Walkout Butler Villa Suite, Room 9204. We had Cecil, Garth and Arielle as our Butlers. Every morning, at our request, we watched the sun rise over the open ocean as we had fruit and coffee delivered to our... More

Our last day in paradise...... I am sitting by the pool under a big umbrella sipping a cold drink compliments of my butler. We've never been so pampered. This was a trip for our 15 year wedding anniversary and we are so glad we came. A good friend is a travel agent and has visited all the Sandals resorts. She... More

Had a very nice, laid-back time here. If you're looking for active, partying times, this is not your place. If you want the quiet (2 pools-the quiet one: no blender at the bar since it's too loud) and the bluest waters-this is your beach. The chocolate party Thurs night is not big like the one in Ochi, but still nice.... More

The beach here is wonderful--long and private, soft sand and beautiful turquoise water.The staff was super helpful and went above and beyond. At check-in we asked about wireless and the lady behind the desk helped us program our iPad to get it working. This is our third Sandals (Antigua and La Toc) and this one by far had the best...

Went with 2 other couples. All of us had different room types. They were all great. The food was the best of any all inclusive we have tried. The hotel staff was charming. They were gracious and attentive. The water was an amazing shade of blue (closest to BoraBora I've found). The resort was full but did not feel at... More

Beautiful beaches! The rooms were a good size and kept clean, but service and housekeeping were inconsistent. (some days we received hand towels and no bath towels, others bath only.) Buffett was as expected (mediocre and rushed) and the Italian and French restaurants were quite good. Pizza place was slow, but decent. Towels are hard to come by! Would revisit... More
