We stayed at Sandals with our family who had come from Europe and occupied several rooms, i.e. we were a mix of adults and toddlers to teens.
We loved our time there, the rooms were nice, the service (especially Tess, who makes all the difference to this place and is a fantastic host) excellent, and the food very good. The pool is not big, but definitely big enough for the kids to play in and us to refresh. The location is very good, only a few minutes from a great beach, and a few minutes from the shops.
We had dinner there twice, which was excellent both times.
There were only a few downsides.
Given we were traveling with kids, and given it is a B&B, we expected fridges in the rooms so we could prepare the kids' lunches / dinners at the B&B. There aren't any fridges in any of the rooms. Tess and her team made sure we could store some things in their kitchen, and gave us cooler boxes, but it is still not the same.
The second downside was that in some of our rooms, there was neither a fan nor an aircon system. While there was a nice breeze during the night, we didn't want to open our sliding doors since our room was out to the (quiet) back street, and we felt it was too dangerous to keep the door wide open all night long. Especially the upstairs bit in the family room was quite hot......
But apart from that it is a great place that we can definitely recommend !!
