Sandals Barbados was nice. Not a “wow” or “it sucked” just … nice. The staff were awesome, genuine, sincere, “real”; not fake or scripted like others (Bahamas). Hats off to Ronnie, Jolon “Hollywood”, Melody, Rohan, Michael and many others. Job well done. I got to perform some stand-up comedy and play around with the staff in activities. The kite making...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

WE stayed at sandals Barbados to celebrate my and my wife's bvirthdays. I have to say I do not recognise many of the criticisms of the resort. We really enjoined our 2 week stay.Everything fron housekeeping to management was first class. We stayed in March this year and will return again next year.

We love Sandals and keep coming back after trying so many other resorts around the Caribbean as we get the same quality and high standards at each one. Construction was never on my mind and what little noise there was would be in some remote section of the resort. Keep in mind, it's on the land next door, the present...

This was our first time to Sandals Barbados. This is a very luxurious and well appointed hotel. The service was, as with all Sandals properties, absolutely wonderful. You never hear a NO from anyone. Pierre in the Merry Monkey was a great bartender, full of smiles, jokes and even some card tricks. We taught him a new drink...The Irish Breakfast...

Waiting for our departure shuttle at Sandals Barbados and would like to review. Husband and I give it 4 only because when you first walk in it does not have that same Wow factor like the other three we visited. I am talking coming out of lobby and seeing the large Sandals archway and seeing the pool and ocean beyond...

Firstly, laying ghosts to rest- we were aware of the building works next door, but they were absolutely not a problem for us, our friends, or indeed for any of the other guests we spoke to. The property is smaller than most Sandals, but that added to its charm. The location is excellent, the rooms as sharp as you would...

This is our 3rd visit to this hotel (first time in 09/13 it was Couples Barbados) and I must say this place is fantastic. Transfer from the airport was seamless after 8+ hour flight from London, a cold towel and glass of champagne are offered to you as step out of the minibus. Check in is swift and we were...

It's our last night here and I'm truly sad this vacation is ending!! From start to finish, this place has been top-notch! We arrived during Reunion Week. This being our first time at a Sandals, I was surprised to learn that they were hosting such an event. However, it didn't take long for me to understand why people keep coming...

The drive from the airport was about 25 minutes. Check in was easy. We did it through Ipads. Then had a short tour of the property. Then they showed us to our room. They said our luggage would be brought to our room. They lost our luggage, it took three hours to finally get our bags to our room. We...

This was our seventh Sandals vacation, but first to the one in Barbados, which has only been open 2/3 years. We flew direct from Toronto to Bridgetown by Air Canada (5.5 hours) The resort is only 20 minutes from the airport. We were on the 3rd floor of Hawksbill House overlooking the Lagoon & gardens. Our patio had 2 chairs...
