How to Get There
I arrived at Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort on August 12th with my husband. Our vacation was planned with another couple our friends. When we arrived at Sandals we waitied for our rooms, which they had already been waiting over an hour when my husband and I arrived. Manager of Sandals Royal Bahamian Ms. Q, spoke with both couples and apologized for the delay. She stated we both would be given an upgrade and $100.00 credit for the inconvenience. She also stated that we were not to unpack our luggage, because we would be upgraded again on our 2nd day. My friend husband told her that was not necessary, but she stated we had to move again. So we planned our day according to what we were told. My friends checked the concierge to make sure we were all set for the move, due to Ms. Q being off today, which was Tuesday. She stated we would be well taken care of an did not have to worry. I called the bellman desk and I was also informed not to do anything my bags would be moved to the next room and we would be told after 2pm our new room number. At 2:30 pm all 4 of us went to the concierge desk and they stated we had already been given an upgrade and we could speak with a manager and they apologized for what was taking place. The gentleman at the concierge called and spoke with Ms.Q, not sure what exchange during that conversation, but we eventually spoke with a manager who apologized again told us we were in the upgraded rooms, but she did give the $100.09 credit which was supposed to be given to us by Ms. Q.We all left her desk on day 2 of our vacation to tray to enjoy the days we had left. Well on day 3 of our vacation we decided to have breakfast at the Baccarat restaurant and all of our food was cold. We did let our server know and we got I apologize once again, do you want to speak to my manager. We declined at what we could and left the restaurant. Trying to still make the best of a not so good situation. Day 4 we used the credit and was goibg to pay the difference and rented a cabana for the day. This was probably the best part of our trip. The 2 women who worked with us Sandra and Ms. N were amazing. After leaving the beach to get rrady for dinner, here I go again another issue. They left 2 wash cloths in our room and no towels. I could ot take a shower for 1 and half hour later. I called housekeeping twice requesting towels, then went down to fromt desk in a robe because an hour had passed. The gentleman at the desk called and told me towels would be in room 1401 in 10minutes. I waited an additional 10minutes and went back downstairs and told him I was ot leaving the desk until I got some towels, so my husband and I could take showers. This was my first time at Sandals and I do not everwant to go back. I travel 2-3 times a year and thus is one vacation I could ot wait to go home. I pray this review helps them get it together. I apologize does not cover the bad experiences over and vier again. I pray they get it together.
Short 4 days trip only 3 hours from Houston UA non-stop flight. Resort was spacious, great beach and atmosphere. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Large pools, one busy and another one quiet. Will go back to this resort and will recommend it.
Besides enjoying the luxury of a Sandals vacation, we like to snorkel. At SRB, we were thrilled to see turtles, stingrays, midnight and rainbow parrotfish, and even a tiger grouper. One person showed me a photo of a baby manta ray, which they saw at the offshore island. Alas I looked and looked but did not find it. Antonique, Angel, Xena, and a friendly giant in the Watersports office were so nice to us! We had several pleasant conversations with Alfred, the watersports manager, who is very knowledgeable.
Previously, there were two snorkel boat trips per day. This time, there was only one snorkel boat at noon. This schedule made it a little difficult to plan when to go to the island to see the turtles and still have our fav lunch at Spices. On Wednesdays, the snorkel trip is for Club Sandals only. The boat shuttle to the island is very busy at 10 am and late in the afternoon. However, Captain Ray and Captain Cruz, will make extra trips to accommodate the crowds. The same boat is used for the snorkel trips, so there may not be island transfers between 12 and 1 pm.
We had a great time dining on the dock at Gordons, twice, by going before 6 pm; they open at 5:30. We were also happy to dine in the lovely art deco Baccarat on Friday and Sunday. Be sure and make reservations early in the week. The menus in most of the restaurants include plant based entrees; at the Royal Cafe, the veggie burger was delicious. The Select dinner for repeat guests was very classy, surf and turf, of course. I requested a vegetarian entree and they accommodated me. Perhaps, they are trying to cut costs but it was irritating that waiters did not refill wine glasses unless you asked, even at the repeaters dinner. Also orders were taken for dessert at the beginning of the meal and it was plunked down without offers of coffee or tea. The bars can be busy especially at the pools; sometimes, the bar at the Pizza Patio is less busy. Kendria, Octavio, Melvin, and many others provided excellent service.
Staff were very friendly, and seemed happy, reflecting good management. Beverly and “K” at Loyalty and Travel were especially cordial. It was disappointing that Diamond lunch was cancelled. We had fun with playmakers, Q, Ian, and Jason among others. To escape from the noisy all day craziness at the Windsor pool, we went to the Balmoral pool. However, we jumped in the Windsor pool for the foam party. Entertainment after dinner varied from good to mediocre. The VIP band was great on Reggae Night and the Junkanoo parade on carnival night was fun. At 10 pm, the piano bar goes wild. The resort has a nice atmosphere and we met many interesting guests.
Our room was very nice, housekeeping was good. Furnishings, AC, bathroom, closets, amenities were all good. Our shower would drip unless it was cranked off very hard. It was inspected by maintenance but continued to drip all week. The carpet in our room was nice for decor but needed a good cleaning. We appreciated perks from Club Sandals, such as additions to minibar, and Club snorkel.
Finally, we would like to thank Mr Lucky, the general manager, for a wonderful time. We will be back.
