Our weddingmoom at Sandals
Reviewed 22 hours ago

If you are thinking about getting married at sandals I HIGHLY recommend it! We got married here on 11/08/18 and let me tell you we had the BEST experience. Our wedding planner was Keri and she was absolutely amazing. She made everything so easy and seamless. We spent about 2 hours ( maybe less ) planning with her and doing wedding stuff once we got there, and she handled the rest and we got to relax and enjoy out trip. I was worried at first about it being a little weird because it was just the two of us, but keri and her team made it absolutely perfect. It was very intimate and romantic.We had a cake, a first dance and everything else a traditional wedding would have, it was just more focused on us than having to entertain your guests! I would not have changed a thing even if I could have. It was the perfect wedding and perfect day. Thank you Keri and team- Stephanie, Evelyn, Philly, James, Johnny, Livingston, Fred, Doneko and Randia. Also huge should out to Travis and Rolando, our photographer and videographer who were absolutely amazing also!

PS: we also LOVED our butlers, Denver, Zhaly and Sean. If you go, request them. They are called the A team for a reason!

It’s what you make of it

We just came back from a week there. I was a little hesitant with the mixed reviews but overall we had a blast! There are a few things that could take this Sandals up a few notches though.

Rooms - we stayed in the Balmoral tower with a nice view of .... construction. Which isn’t that big of a deal because really how much time are you spending in your room but a view of the back ally construction isn’t the best. They really need to update the rooms. They are seriously outdated. Actually the whole Tower needs a massive update.

Construction- there is a lot more going on than just one area. Fine but they should be a little more forthcoming about it as some restaurants are closed.

Restaurants - they hype up Baccarat & Kimonos & they are the only 2 restaurants you need a reservation for. They were ok. Baccarat over cooked some items (steak, shrimp/scallops & Kimonos was extremely salty. Again with over cooked shrimp & steak. Every other place was pretty good. Spices is great for breakfast & it’s the same as breakfast offerings at Casanova (it just opens later) but all very good. Don’t bother trying to get a Pizza at Bella Napoli (which is inside Casanova now due to construction) unless you want to wait 50min for a little pizza. Side note - make sure you stick to bottled water.

Service - overall fine but SO SLOW. “Island time” is very much a real thing here. Ordering an unsweetened iced tea & a soda took 35 min. Ridiculous. They are in slow motion.

Pool Bar - on the party pool side. Opens up for drinks whenever they want? It varied from 9:30, 10, 10:30 and one day 11am. Get it together. The staff is mostly fun if not a bit sarcastic & slightly rude so it depends on the day. They make better drinks at the quiet pool & the water is clearer

Room Service/Housekeeping - fine except if you need something you have to call several times until you actually get it. We needed extra towels - took 3 calls & a few hours later only to have a very irritated employee shove the towels in our hands & walk away. Same if you need your fridge restocked. Takes a few tries.

Speaking of towels - get up early & get yours! They run out so quick & the refill time on the towels varies greatly. Some days it’s right away other days it was 4/4:30. So grab yours & claim your chair early. People did take our towels while we gone for 15 min. Make friends with your chair neighbors so they can watch your stuff & vice versa.

Private Island - this depends on what your looking for. It’s very quiet & chill. Maybe a little too much. But it’s beautiful & you can scuba dive & swim the turtles if that’s your thing. Schooners is good for lunch so I would say at least check it out one day

Weather - sunny & 85. Hot! Couple days were partly cloudy but it’s a nice break from the hot sun. Don’t worry about the rain. It’s showed rain for a few days & it never did except one day it rained for 10min. So don’t stress

So this review sounds nit picky but I feel like these are things I would want to know. I just feel for the amount of money your paying they could really do the little things better which would elevate the experience. This was also our first time at a Sandals property but I hear very good things about the other locations so I look forward to
giving them a try one day.

Would I come back to this Sandals property? Maybe....after the construction is done

Bottom line. The Bahamas are so beautiful and you will have an amazing time....it’s what you make of it!

Cannot say enough about the people working at the Royal Bahamian. The food was outstanding and the resort is beautiful. The patio on our 5th floor room faced the ocean but had the laundry machines below us. Just a little noisy. Next time I'll do pool/ocean view. WE didn't have a butler but from what I witnessed you really don't want one cause they are all over you like a cheap suit. All in all I would go back there in a heart beat.

My (now) husband and I visited Sandals Royal Bahamian with 25 of our closest family and friends for our wedding and honeymoon! Everything was perfect! More than we could have ever hoped for! Amazing! The staff and wedding planner on site were all wonderful, extremely attentive, bridal hair and makeup was perfect, and everyone was so kind and happy for us! We felt so special! Thank you for making our day so magical!
