We joined some friends who had come to sandals the year before and it was all that they advertised. Il Cielo was the best for dinner although most of the other restaurants were good too. We were there for the Super Bowl and watched it outside the Drunken Duck--a nice experience! The golf course is excellent and in very good... More

Wonderful week. The rooms, food, facilities and service are superb. Magnificent Greg Norman Golf course and clay tennis courts. Only 5 min. from the airport ( the easiest airport to navigate). The color of the ocean is striking aqua blue, the likes of Bora Bora.The beach is white sand and a mile long with no venders. We found this resort... More

I stayed at Sandals Emerald Bay in November 2011. I have stayed at sandals whitehouse, negril, st. lucia grande and beaches turks and caicos. I have to say the St. Lucian Grande is still my favorite if you have the time for the extra travel! Emerald Bay was beautiful and really did go out of the way to please the... More

We went to this Sandals in January 2011 with 2 other couples and had a fabulous time. We went back again this January and things are even better now. They have added a new a la carte restaurant and a very nice coffee/pastry shop. We had 3 butlers--Darrion, Anthony and Keisha and all were very attentive and made us feel... More

Hotel managers and staff greet you with cold water and a smile and wisk you off in a waiting SUV.Upon arrival your baggage is taken to your room and a cold glass of bubbly is handed to you. Check in was well organized. After that things kinda went down hill. The room smelled very musky(old), when we complained they sent... More

It’s wonderful when you can say that everything was what I expected without any disappointments. There were 6 of us travelling together. We were all transported to the hotel in SUV taxis. The taxis were lined up down the street and there was next to no time waiting. When we arrived at the hotel we went to a Lounge and... More

What an incredible time we had on our recent visit to Sandals Emerald Bay! Three hour flight from Toronto, 15 minutes from airport to resort. The site was amazing--long white sand beach--turquoise water--immaculately groomed grounds. Our room was spacious and spotless and restocked daily. French and Italian a la carte restaurants, a fabulous English pub--and Barefoot by the Beach, where... More
