Resort is somewhat dated and needs refreshing. Not a 5-star experience. Some of the staff are absolutely terffic, but some servers in the restaurant look like they don't want to be there. Golf course holes 11 to 16 are absolutely breathtaking. We played the back 9 five times last week.

We visited the resort for our honeymoon, and after reading some reviews I was getting a little nervous. Long story short some people are just extremely picky and if you're looking for something to complain about well you'll find that anywhere you go. Initially we did not book for the butlers but I'm so glad we did! We had two... More

As you read through the reviews you are likely to be like me, "I'm spending lots of money, this is my honeymoon, I want it to be amazing, but I'm hearing bad things." Rest easy, choosing Emerald Bay Resort is a great choice you won't regret. When you first arrive (we booked as Club Members) you are warmly greeted, given... More

My husband and I traveled to Emerald Bay the July 10-17. This was our 7th Sandals resort. We've been to Grenada, Antigua, St Lucia, Whitehouse, Negril and Ochi. It definitely lived up to the Sandals standard in terms of service, quality of food, rooms and beautiful setting. It has the best beach of any Sandals we've been to. The colour... More

This was our third Sandals stay, first at SEB. We did not opt for the butler suite after reading reviews that it wasn't that much of a difference. That being said, we had no problems making reservations at any of the restaurants. We got up early one day and even secured a cabana at the pool. As with other resorts,... More

Went to Sandals Emerald Bay for couples trip in June 2016. Very poor service property wide. The water was beautiful - absolutely beautiful. Butlers take all of the beach chairs and most pool chairs. The piano bar was lots of fun - good entertainment. Overall the poor service, time lags for drinks, etc. made the stay problematic. Guests complaining about... More

We went for a week on vacation and absolutely loved it! It was our first time in the Bahamas and definitely won't be the last. The beach was amazing as was the food. There were a ton of food options and unlimited lobster tail nightly. Couldn't ask for better. Most of the staff was very friendly. Also, the ocean is... More

If you have celiac like me, and you are booking at a Sandals because of the claims they make on their website, and willing to pay all the extra over another resort, you may want to do some more research of the other resorts before booking here. Let me start off with a couple positives. The service here is great.... More

Our first visit was in Feb. 2013 for our 40th wedding anniversary. We had the Prime Minister walkout honeymoon suite. A butler is a must at this property. Ousr were fabulous. We love the size of the property - not so huge. Food is great, golf course is beautiful and the beach is one of the best we've seen. Just... More
