We stayed at Sandals Emerald Bay between Jan 8- 18. Just wanted to say a few things about our stay. Overall - it was wonderful! We got married there and Kalise the wedding planner was fantastic! My only complaint about the wedding - We were advised by kai - the original online planner - that if we paid $1000 for... More

If you play golf or if you just want to relax by the pool or on the beach this is the place for you. A much slower pace than a lot of other resorts which is what we wanted. The rooms were clean and service was much better than we have experienced at other Sandals. The food was a bit... More

I'll start by saying that we didn't choose this hotel. We were there as my partner was on a business trip from the UK in a group of 8- age range 29- us, upto 50's. My conclusion is that this would be great for a couples retreat, reconnecting and just spending a quiet relaxing time together. The food was generally... More

This was our first Sandals experience and we were pleasantly surprised. Booked the butler suite level to get the free golf ( carts fee only) and glad we did. Had two superb butlers, Jamier & Angelo that greeted us when we arrived and took care of anything we needed. Extremely helpful and friendly. Room was beautiful...near the quiet pool, two... More

We've been to Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica and really felt the "bar" was set very high. Sandals Emerald Bay, Great Exuma not only met that bar but exceeded it! One of the best parts was the trip from airport to resort: 15 minutes from the time your feet touch the tarmac to when a drink is in your hand. First,... More

Bahamas Rooms The rooms are nicely appointed, clean and spacious. We had the walk out patio which was nice to lounge at night. Only issue is when it rained, the drain spouts above made it so the water would splash onto the patio, only an issue if you want to stay out doors during the rain. I found housekeeping to... More

Sandal’s Emerald Bay is just shy of paradise and with a little tweaking, it could be the best Sandal’s we’ve visited so far. We are long-time Sandal’s customers who are generally pleased with our experiences. This trip completed our 62 night in a Sandal’s resort and our first Sandal’s experience in the Bahama’s. We typically travel to Jamaica and our... More

We just returned from Sandals Emerald Bay, staying 1/10/15 - 1/17/15. We absolutely loved our visit, and were thrilled with week in the Bahamas. I will say this, and I will elaborate further below, but the resort is very nice, consistently average to other all-inclusive resorts we have visited. That is not a bad thing at all. We went expecting... More
