We stayed from 12/7 to 12/14. Originally booked with Couples like many did, and got a great deal. Having stayed at other Sandals in the past, we were happy to hear the news that Sandals was taking over. We rented a car and drove from airport to the resort. When we arrived, check in was a breeze. We stayed in Room 1407 which was in block one, ocean view ,floor 4. The view was perfect, and the room was clean and spacious,but they could use a new mattresses ! Yes, you could hear the entertainment at night, but we are on vacation!~ Hearing music until 11 pm was not the end of the world to us. That was only the first night, We were at the entertainment every night after that any way !
As far as the food, it was ok, Nothing really amazing, but - good.
Drinks were good,
The staff was great.
The beach is wonderful. The waves are a little rough, and can knock you down! But the water is just beautiful.
If we had paid top "sandals" dollar to stay at this resort we would have been so disappointed because it does not come close to a Sandals resort. But for the money we paid, it was well worth it. We met several nice people, even bumped into people we knew already from home there at Sandals. Barbados is a nice Island with great people. We will be back to Barbados, just don't know if we'll be able to afford the new "Sandal-ized" prices ?
