Having been to many Sandals resorts in the past and to The Grande on several occasions We have noticed over the last couple of visits a deteriation in many aspects with regard to this resort.Many of the staff have developed attitude and don't seem to care whether they serve you or not at the bars,the food quality in the Bayside restaurant has deteriated, although there is an improvement in the Menu and atmosphere at the Italian which was long overdue.Most of the irritating things that annoy people could with a very small amount of effort on behalf of the Management be corrected.
The biggest irritation and totally cringeworthy thing that has crept into the Grande over the last few years is recognition by Sandals of "Ambassadors", American and sadly English holidaymakers who strut around the resort full of their own misguided self importance, wearing Sandals identity badges,many first time resort guests mistake these sad people for genuine Sandals employees and we have heard many complaints in the past, and some more on this trip concerning an embarrassing English couple of idiots. So get a grip Sandals you either sort these things out or as you are fond of saying " we have a choice ", sadly, we may just choose to take your advice in the future.
