I had never stayed at a Sandals Resort before, and WOW what an experience! My wife and I traveled to Nassau in October to celebrate a week away from the cold winds of St. Louis, Missouri. We have traveled quite a bit over the years. I wasn't sure that I would enjoy staying in one place for a week, as I like to visit many different cities when I travel. Sandals Royal Bahamian quickly set my doubts aside as every need, wish, whim, and desire was met in our seven days there! Among many other things, we experienced seven fabulous restaurants of every variety, two beautiful pristine pools located very close to our room, a glistening beach with every watersport imaginable--all free of cost during our stay, romantic nights lit by Tiki lights and starry skies, a plush, modern room with every amenity--including a beautiful view of the ocean, hammocks in the breeze, great entertainment, and of course, the company of my beautiful wife! I can't imagine any greater care being taken to meet our every need. My wife loved the spa service (she enjoyed a few services while there), and I really enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the private island. We loved the island so much, we visited several times during our stay. Huge cabanas built up on cliffs were readily available, all with loungers and sheer curtains blowing in the breeze. Another favorite memory is karaoking in the pub with our new friends who loved to sing, as well as my X-Men experience with the playmakers. It seems they thought I looked exactly like Senator Kelly from the X-Men movies, and they insisted I take several pix with them! As the "playmaker", Ian Thompson kept the good times rolling with all the activities he headed up available throughtout the day and evening. He is also quite the gifted artist too. Ian and friends treated me a like a true celebrity. Of course, now that I think about it, my wife and I were both treated like celebrities by EVERYONE on staff at Sandals while we were there. We will definitely return to Sandals again. Thank you for a magnificent experience we'll never forget!
