The Perfect Destination Wedding
Reviewed 8 hours ago

We visited Sandals Royal Bahamian in June of 2018 for our daughters destination wedding. Let me start by saying everything was absolutely amazing. We were picked at the airport in a Rolls Royce, just classy!! Upon arrival we were greeted by our butler D Ron, who was fantastic, giving a tour of the resort and making sure we had everything we needed and letting us know that he was just a phone call away. The butler service was spectacular. D Ron, Demery and Tino are the best!!! They treated us like royalty. The wedding planner Ashande was awesome she was on point from beginning to end. She made sure every little detail was handled. The wedding and reception was beautiful . The food at the reception was delicious. All of our guest had have a lovely time. We used Sandals photography. The photos were absolutely beautiful. Our photographer's name was Marvin he was excellent, he captured the most beautiful scenery with fun and creative poses. We stayed in the Windsor Towers everything was clean and the view was breathtaking. We were there for a week. There were so many buffets and restaurant to choose from. I have to say the food that we had was pretty good being that it was all inclusive. My daughter and her husband was so happy and just blown away by the beauty of the resort. We all had the time of our lives. Thank You Sandals for a dream wedding our daughter will never forget. My husband and I will definitely be returning for our 30th anniversary.

Love the private island,

We went with another couple and had a great time at this Sandals. This was our second time visiting a Sandals. We have been to Sandals Royal Caribbean years ago so I’m basing this review on that experience.

We stayed in a Balmoral Ocean View Honeymoon Suite. Our view was perfect of the ocean and the quiet Balmoral pool. The room was huge and we loved our balcony. We didn’t really use the concierge service other than checking in and the mini bar wasn’t used either. We prefer to have a drink made at the bar with more options. I would definitely recommend these rooms just for the view and balcony. Plus they were recently remodeled so are beautiful and new.

We loved the private island and enjoyed snorkeling over there. We saw lots of turtles. We didn’t get to do the group snorkel due to wind, but were more than content snorkeling at our leisure off the beach. Perfect beach days in our opinion!

Food was pretty good. The pizza on the beach was amazing and perfect after a day in the sun. Breakfast at Baccarat was my favorite, but took a little time. If you don’t want to spend the time for a leisurely breakfast; Spices was fine. Hands down; our favorite restaurant was Gordon’s. Don’t miss it. We didn’t get to try all of the restaurants; but Schooners was excellent. I wouldn’t waste time at Kimono’s. Save the hibachi dinner for at home. It was good; but I’ve had much better.

Nighttime entertainment was ok - sometimes bordered on cheesy; but it was a fun time and we were there for the beach and relaxation. Plus being with friends, we enjoyed just hanging out in the evenings after dinner.

Why didn’t I give this resort 5 stars? Primarily the service is really inconsistent at Sandals Royal Bahamian compared to our trip to Sandals Royal Caribbean. Especially the bartenders were unfriendly and seemed put out to serve you. At times you would be the only one waiting at the bar for a drink and they wouldn’t even acknowledge you for what seemed like forever. I never saw wait staff around the pool and on the beach bringing drinks. Some people were excellent. Even though tipping if prohibited, it was always accepted when we tipped for excellent service. Our waiter at Gordon’s stood out as exceptional.

I was also very disappointed in the change of wine selections at Sandals. The free options are very limited. I enjoyed the extensive wine list that was included during our first Sandals vacation. They don’t have any sweet white wines like Riesling or moscato. I think the only reds are merlot and Cabernet. I really prefer Pinot noir, Shiraz, or syrah. This is not a positive change in my opinion.

All of that being said, would we go back? Definitely! We are already booked for January 2018. I am hoping the level of service has improved and I can write a 5 star review for Sandals Royal Bahamian.

Wedding Flow
Reviewed 2 days ago

I am a fan of Sandals resort and this was our fourth one. We were there for a wedding and these grounds are small compared to other Sandals on the Islands we have been to. You can run into the same faces and it is laid back. My first impression of this resort was not a very warm and welcoming one. Staff at the front desk have a few kinks in the area of hospitality and warmth they need to work on. This trip we didn’t have a butler but butler or no butler service this is Sandals. You expect and pay for a level of service.
Our room was comfortable, and we had no complaints. you can have room service in less than 40 minutes or sooner. If you choose to eat in for breakfast, breakfast is very good and comes hot. I must say I enjoy their breakfast. If you want a taste of the islands you must have the chairman’s breakfast. You can get your standard breakfast in the restaurants. We had a very good dinner at Gordon’s on the water no reservation needed. Fixed menu. Relaxing evening. Nice view. We didn’t eat in some of the other restaurants because we had prearranged dinners.

You must go to the beach on this resort it is so relaxing and you will love it! Outside of Negril this beach is wonderful!

While there I had conversations with a few staff members letting them know of my Sandals experiences. They wanted to make sure I left with a good impression of their resort and made sure we enjoyed our experience in the Bahamas. I want to send a shout out to staff Gerard, Beverly, Cher, Arizona and Lauriel. Thanks Christina at the front desk for your diligent search to help me recover my lost prescription glasses. To the young man who unknowingly sketched a picture of my husband while we were sitting, thanks I loved it! Of course the wedding was beautiful...All of you made sure my time there was good and made me want to come back. See you soon!

Pretty disappointed..
Reviewed 2 days ago

We booked a "swim up" suite with butler service. The swim up pool that ran along the back patios of the suites went from 3-4' to less than 1' at our suite. I'm not sure why and they wouldn't let us switch rooms. You couldn't "swim up" to anything in under a foot of water. Super disappointed. For the extra money for that we could have done a lot of other things.

We also were very disappointed in the butler service. If you're not needy and demanding enough then you become a very low priority to them. There were butlers who spent the whole day with their guests and we couldn't get a response from our butler team. They seem to only do what they want to do, and if you ask for something outside of what they want to do then it doesn't get done or it takes forever. I'd either recommend not getting a butler suite or if you do be very demanding of them to get what you want. I feel terrible even saying that but it's the only way to get anything done by them.

The butler team disappointed us over and over again, from making/canceling reservations to simply picking up an item from the lobby. They told me they couldn't find it. I walked up myself and asked and it was right behind the desk. I'm guessing they didn't even check. Really terrible.

The resort was clean and beautiful and the rest of the staff was mostly great. I'm not sure if I'd ever go back but if I do I'd do it differently.

Great Dive Crew
Reviewed 4 days ago

This was the second Sandals I’ve visited. It was way more formal (and less tropically lush) than Montego Bay Jamaica, so it was much less
to my liking. The staff wasn’t as outgoing/nice as in Jamaica, but I think the culture is just a bit more formal. The food was delicious (especially the French restaurant). You have to be very clear if you want a drink without alcohol because we kept getting rum in our sodas. The offshore island was fun too—loved the head chef who cooked us burgers and dogs on the beach. The dive crew was fantastic! Thanks to Nelson, Ramon, Damien, Sony, Anthony, Brian, Samuel, and Wenzel!
