Just came back from SEB. What a fantastic vacation¡. One of the best beaches that I've seen in my life, fantastic and large main pool (quiet pool was very nice too), excellent restaurants (French, Italian 'Il Cielo' and 'Barefoot by the Sea' were my favorite), great drinks and very good staff. 'Dino's Pizza' is also a must for one night.... More

We spent 8 nights at Sandals Emerald Bay having originally booked to stay at the Royal Bahamian. Overall it was a really nice stay and we’re glad that we were more than happy to have to have been moved. So onto the goods and the not so goods.

We went here for an anniversary trip last month. Overall it was very good. The beach was outstanding- a tour guide described the ocean in Exuma as similar to swimming in windex, and he wasn't exaggerating. It was breathtaking- the most beautiful ocean I have ever seen! My husband and I spent most of our days on the beach under... More

We had a great time at this resort. The room was spacious with his and her sinks, walk-in shower and spacious tub. The housekeeping staff was great, always honoring our requests, and keeping our room clean. The resort location is like a small fantasy island. Most of the staff at the resort were great! So many great people on staff... More

My husband and I chose this resort for our honeymoon. We had originally planned to stay at the Nassau Sandals for 3 days, and then Emerald Bay Sandals for 3 days, but about a month before we were set to travel the Nassau resort closed and wouldn't be open until October. We ended up losing money on the airfare we... More

My wife and I stayed here for our 10th anniversary in August. We have previously stayed at La Toc, St.Lucia, Whitehouse, Ochi, and Antigua. This was perhaps our best week of vacation and one of our favourite islands to visit. We keep returning to Sandals because we know what to expect and we are never disappointed. After reading many reviews... More

Just returned from a wonderful eleven days at Emerald Bay. We had some inclement weather fro three or four days but it didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves. The food was excellent. While we didn't eat at The Italian or French restaurants, the others were excellent. The staff at the resort were very friendly and I think I could count... More

My first trip to this resort. Have been to many resorts in the islands and in Mexico, but never to the Exumas. The beach and beautiful color of the water were by far the best I have seen anywhere. The powdery-white sand and turquoise blue of the water kept us on the beach every day except two. One day at... More

We had a wonderful experience. We celebrated our 15 year anniversary and retied the knot. The staff were very helpful especially Ashandie in the wedding department. The food was great as well as the drinks. If you go be sure sure to book your excursion to swim with the pigs and see th iguanas.

We stayed 7 nights and this was our first stay at Emerald Bay. We've stayed at Sandals Royal Bahamian and thought we'd try Emerald Bay this time and we are so glad we did! Absolutely the most stunning water and beach. The water is the most beautiful turquoise blue and the sand is almost white. Our room was a Honeymoon... More
