Max was great at the bar as were all the bartenders. Food was very good at all the restaurants. Bahama Bay for breakfast(Monetessa? made the...

My wife and I stayed here for a week in March 2017 and loved every minute of it, can’t recommend it enough. I could go on all day about how great our stay was but suffice to say that if you’re thinking about travelling here don’t think any more just go ahead and book it! Some of the highlights: The...

My wife and I decided to spend our 37th anniversary at this resort since the reviews all seemed to indicate this would be the resort for us. And they were right! We enjoy time alone and don't particularly care for very loud music and over-the-top types of bars. Her job is very stressful and she needed some time to just...

The beach and the resort are beautiful. The food is very good and the staff seem to have a lot of fun (always dancing and signing). If you go, do the Pig Tour - excellent. They are very kind to the animals and made sure everyone was interacting appropriately. We had butler service - Greg and Quenton - amazing. We...

This resort was nice, but I wouldn't go back. Some of this is within Sandals' control, some of it is not. As a disclaimer, I was on my company's tab. If I hadn't been, I think I'd be upset about the price for the value. *Check the weather - as other reviewers have said, Great Exuma can be hot &...

This was our first Sandals trip, but we had been to Beaches many times in the past. Overall, Sandals Emerald Bay is a beautiful resort. The beach was amazing, the grounds really well kept, the staff overall were very friendly and enjoyable. What made our trip special though was the friendly and extremely professional service the butler team added to...

This is one of the best resorts I have been to. The beach is absolutely great. It is large with exquisite sand. If you are a shell collector you will be dissapointed -- there are virtually none. This makes is great for wading, swimming, and walking barefoot since there is nothing sharp in the sand. The beach is about 1km+...

Beautiful grounds, lovely big pool, enough restaurants with the 3 new additions, great staff and only a 10 minute ride from the airport. We don't golf but the golf course is gorgeous. We love the quiet pool with its own separate bar and the fact that you can get cabana's for free at this resort makes it very enjoyable. There...
