This was the first time for us to ever return to the same resort. Our first trip was in 2011, not long after Sandals had taken over. It was just like we remembered but even better now with some new additions since our first trip. Our butlers were exceptional! We had met Bernard on our first trip and requested him... More

We returned to SEB in August after truly enjoying our first visit in July 2012. In 17 years of Caribbean/Mexico beach vacations we have only repeated resorts one other time (Galley Bay in Antigua), not because we disliked the resorts, but because we like to try new places. So it is saying a lot that we decided to return to... More

I booked the SEB for our 20th after my lovely wife picked this resort because of the beach!! This was our first time with Sandals and we stayed 5 nights 9/14-9/19. If you can take the direct Delta flight out of ATL, it is quick and easy! We loved SEB!! It is truly beautiful!!! The beach and resort grounds are... More

Let me first start off by stating that I thoroughly reviewed this hotel and this island. I've been to many Sandals/Beaches Hotels and always enjoyed every one. I read countless reviews about the hotel, the things to do, the weather, etc. so my advice to you is don't always believe what you read. I was a little hesitant and worried,... More

Another destination and resort with characters of its own! You just have to go and believe it with your own eyes. The environment has a lot to offer and you will for sure enjoy your vacation: beaches, activities, restaurants, quality of food, staff, etc. I was captivated by the color of the water… a natural wonder. Golfers would really appreciate... More

We have just returned from Sandals Emerald bay and it was great. We took part in a number of scuba diving excursions and especially found the dive staff most helpful in all that they did. The food was very good, the Italian restaurant, which was one of those that you had to book, was a little disappointing. The staff in... More

Sandals Emerald Bay Sept. 7-14 It’s very rare that we would leave our pleasant late summer weather to travel south. But the pull of our favorite resort and the opportunity to see Greg Norman could not be resisted. What we encountered was hot, hot, hot…not only in terms of weather, but an entire staff who were enthusiastic and excited to... More

We just got back from our trip to Sandals Emerald Bay and had an amazing time!! The hotel, staff, food and beach were all great. The nightlife was a little limited but thank you to Mikey Dreads and the Tropical Breeze band who came to our rescue! The band is amazing and so talented. Mikey Dreads (Michael Hoyte) is also...

I have to start by saying that I have been to the Sandals sister property of Beaches in Turks & Caicos (Beaches T&C) and had a awesome time so I was expecting the same again. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. If they could not help, they took you to someone who could help. THE STAFF GETS... More

We vacationed at Sandles Emerald Bay Sept. 13-20. We had a good overall experience but not as great as other Sandles we have been to.( We have stayed at St. Lucia Grand, Antiqua , Negril, and Whitehouse twice.) We have been to 5 other sandles and this one was nice but not beachy enough for us. This is truely a... More
