The beach was amazing. It was absolutely beautiful and the water was so amazingly clear. My wife and I went to get away and unwind. It was just the break we needed. I love that Sandals includes scuba diving. And even though the weather was not the best getting to know and work with the folks at the dive shop was awesome. Ramon, Gary, David, Kenny and Nadia made me day. Every morning I got to spend time with them trying to get out for the morning dives. Some days we made it and some days the weather was not safe. But they wanted to help us dive as much as I wanted to get in the water. They were encouraging, humorous, entertaining and lost importantly they were safe when we did dive. I can’t wait to go dive with them again. I’m told next summer most will go Back to the Sandals Grand Bahamian and we have changed our travel plans to go to that resort in June 2022 just because of the dive shop team! Can’t wait to dive with y’all again! See you soon Ramon!

This was our second trip to this amazing place and it will not be the last. Everyone from the butlers to servers are phenomenal. We have actually made friends with staff members and can’t wait to see them again.

This is an excellent resort. Food and service are at a high level for sure. My wife, our friends and I had an excellent time. We had two great butlers but we don't think the extra cost of butler service was worth it. The golf course is lovely but they have only 12 golf carts left - not their fault (supply chain issues re new carts that have been ordered) but the golf could have been much better organized. There was no notice ahead of time about the shortage of carts, which does not reflect well on Sandals as this greatly limits the number of people that can play. Overall a fun week but we don't think the cost was justified.

Our first Sandals experience! Unfortunately, the awesome staff and resort in Exuma are still being affected by Covid. We appreciated the cleanliness of the rooms and the entire resort, but were a bit saddened that there were not more people there. A resort of this nature should be teeming with people moving about, and celebrating God's awesome creation (it really is paradise!) Golf Tee times cannot be scheduled prior to arrival, which leaves you with only one choice - completely rearrange your schedule. This meant moving around another expedition we had planned, and the schedule just never got back on track. Golf carts are issued at either 8:30 am or 1:30 pm - nothing in between and everyone starts the course at the same time - frustrating to try to start with 12 other golfers all at once- but again - weird becuase there were only 12 others playing golf lol. The Bombay Club, and the sushi restaurant are both closed. The Drunken Duck had only one or two people in it at dinner time. Barefoot By the Sea was amazing - but again - only a few people there. All that sounds great if you love a little solitude - but trust me, it begins to feel a little weird when the pool bar closes at 5:30/6pm.and everyone kind of disappears. Food good, not great, but good. Bahama Bay does a great breakfast! Dino's Pizza is good stuff and the Jerk Shack is a great snack spot! Beach side palapas were abandoned - easy enough to find chairs. The view is unrivaled! Service on the beach is slow- but no worries, there's no wait at the pool bar only a few steps away :)

My fiancé and I absolutely loved Sandals Emerald Bay! It was truly a dream vacation. The staff, beach, property, and views were absolutely impeccable. We didn’t have to lift a finger the whole time. The staff really does go above and beyond to ensure that each guest is loving their stay here. I couldn’t get over how eager they were to help. And the welcome you receive upon arrival makes for a wonderful start to vacation. We were also impressed with the amount of activities at the resort - there’s no need to leave the property unless you want to do an excursion. The beaches in Exuma are the most beautiful we’ve ever seen. Pristine! It really makes the water sports that much more enjoyable, simply because of how beautiful it is. We really loved the crowd of people here too - it’s always nice to be around enjoyable people when you’re on vacation. The food could use a bit more seasoning in our opinion, but overall we still enjoyed it. The staff did a great job of making recommendations for certain items on the menus. Tevin and Akeen were our favorite bartenders who were the sweetest! They did an awesome job! I wanted to cry on our last day here...truly can’t wait to come back!
