We had a wonderful Honeymoon at this Sandals resort. We wanted/needed a week of relaxation after our big day and that's exactly what we got. Upon arrival there was a bit of a mix-up with the rooms but once that got straightened out we were all set. We stayed in a Caribbean Honeymoon Seaside Butler Suite- HS. It was a... More

Was one of the best places. 85% satisfied. Pay extra was worth it. Food excellent and service too. Bar service on beach was the only slow part. Needed to get our own most of the time. First time at a Sandals, so maybe my expectations too high! But I would go back.

As an all inclusive veteran, I am always overly critical of my vacation experience at an all inclusive resort since, as you all well know, the visits to these resorts can be at times a bit pricey. Therefore, you should expect and receive the very best that the resort has to offer. Having traveled to many of Sandals Resorts, I... More

My husband and I went for our honeymoon. Overall it was a very nice resort. It was very clean, we always felt safe and it basically is what you see on their website. The resort had the main pool, a quiet pool, public beach access, paddle boarding and kayaking. It is very romantic and "coupley". I didn't realize this about... More

Went in May 2016. Was our first visit to a Sandals. We stayed in a rondoval on the Caribbean side. Room was beautiful but a little dated. Didn't really matter much as we spent most of our time on that SPECTACULAR beach (wow! Those sunsets) or on excursions around the island. We did the horseback riding, catamaran snorkel, zip line...

This was our Babymoon spot and we were blown away by the location, service and the hotel. We had always heard about how amazing Sandals resorts are and we couldn't wait to try it out ourselves and it didn't disappoint. Everyone remembered our names as we walked through the resorts and even remembered what we had ordered the previous days.... More

First visit to a Sandals resort and my wife and I found it an amazing experience. The resort is made up of the Caribbean original complex with Mediterranean hotel addition so you can take your pick of how to experience your stay. We opted for the Rondavals at the beach front Caribbean side and boy what an amazing choice.Fully stocked... More

First visit to a Sandals Resort and have already booked another holiday to Sandals in St. Lucia for January 2017! We pushed the boat out and went for a suite in the Mediterranean side of the resort with a Butler. We didn't use our butlers services as much as other guests but the reservation of sun loungers each day on... More
