This was our first "all inclusive" vacation. Our literature stated that we would be picked up at the airport in one of two fancy cars. The reality was we were put in a minivan with another couple. Not that big of a deal, but not what was described either. The resort grounds are very beautifully maintained and we did get... More

Overall had an amazing time. Like all my reviews I like to say all the good and the bad things, but luckily the bad things were really minor here. The Good: Aaron, Demetrius, and Jeremy were by far the best bartenders we have ever had at any resort we have stayed! They would go out of their way to do... More

We have just returned from Sandals Emerald Bay: the hotel was simply paradise. I could leave my review at that as it best summarises my thoughts but to do so would be an injustice to the resort, the staff and to readers who are wanting to make Emerald Bay their next vacation destination. Let me start this review by informing... More

We had a pretty good stay at this Sandals resort. It was such a beautiful and clean resort! Just a few complaints, but over all we would stay here again! 1) The pool closes pretty early. We were bummed to discover they start passively ushering guests to get out of the pools at around 7 pm, and once all are... More

We were there for our honeymoon from 8/2-8/10 and it was amazing from the start to finish. Pick-up from the airport was fast and easy and we were at Sandals within 20 minutes from the time we landed. Once we arrived, we were greeted with spectacular service which lasted the whole nine days we were there. The views from the... More

This was our first trip to Sandals Emerald Bay (and also to Exuma) & our 8th trip to Sandals (have previously visited Grande St. Lucia, Royal Bahamian, Whitehouse, LaSource, Carlyle (twice), and Barbados). We are loyal Sandals visitors. We find the brand to be a very reliable - consistent food, service, and accommodations. We also love that scuba diving is... More

We stayed here Aug 7 - 14 and I am mixed on my thoughts. The grounds and beach are absolutely amazing. We had Anfroy/Roy as our butlers and they were top shelf, wonderful service. The challenge lies in the little things, calling down (including the butlers calling as well) for things like glasses in your room, robes, towels, etc. You... More

My husband and I just returned from our 7-night stay at Sandals Emerald Bay for our honeymoon! We had a fantastic stay and I will highlight our pros/cons and hopefully they help make a decision! Like so many we had a hard time choosing based on these reviews. In the end your honeymoon/trip is what you make of it and... More

My husband and I just got back from a relaxing week at Emerald Bay. If you are looking for a relatively quiet and slow paced vacation then this resort would fit the bill. We found the staff genuinely friendly and helpful throughout the week. I especially enjoyed Jennifer's jewelry making classes around the pool- I came home with some really... More
