Early January,we spent 10 days in paradise at SRB.Everything went smoothly,from the arrival at the brand new airport to the time of departure.The short 10 minutes ride to the resort is very convenient.Check-in was a breeze,Fumiko walked us to our suite with her usual courtoisie.Markell took good care of our luggage.Our suite was gorgeous,could'nt get enough of the beautiful ocean view from the balcony.The maids did a great job,everything was spotless.Sandals people work hard,always with a smile and ready to help with anything we might need.This is one of the reason we keep coming back : the staff is warm,caring and friendly.
We were welcome by Mr.Gibson,a true gentleman.He has a very demanding job but seems to always be on top of things.He always makes time to check on you and makes sure your stay is memorable.Damien,the returning guest manager,is a sweetheart.He puts so much love in the resort,he is irreplacable.
The resort is very romantic with his royal history.The gardens are well groomed and very nice to walk around.
Both pools are very enjoyables,lots of fun at the swim-up bars.Thank you Mark for the specials cocktails !
We ate like royalty. We enjoyed breakfast at Spice's,with Darlene's delicious smoothies and fresh squeezed orange juice,Marge,Daphnee and Chaquita eggs,omelets,pancakes waffles,a complete buffet with a great team working around .Specials thanks to Candace,Nichelle,Clifford,Anton and all the others.Lunch at Sandals Cay was fresh and delicious.Sylvaro ans his team are doing a great job.It would be the perfect setting for listening Bahamian music.
We had luxurious dinner at Baccarat,Gordon ,Casanova and Crystal room.We had lobster,filet mignon,lamb,shrimps,fresh hand-made gnocchis,veal,fish,etc,all wonderfully prepared and served by a team with high standarts of quality.Special thanks to Jeffrey,Tommy,Seion,David,Lucas,Vivian,Kadoy,Mark,Dexter,Samantha,Mitzpah and all the others: the list would be too long !
We were spoiled with magnificient festivities for New Year: gala dinner,fireworks,music ,dancing,champagne,chocolate and martini bar ,etc.
The returning guest dinner served under the stars is a night to remember too.
