This property was the best. Everything was clean always, no kids to be found anywhere on property. The two butlers were the best, Katina and Andrey took care of all our needs no matter what we wanted. All the drinks were made from American Liqueur companies so that was no worry. We are going back asap.

Our trip to Royal Bahamas Resort was fantastic. The food was excellent and particularly Baccarats and the Crystal Room. We decided on a walkout zen villa room with a soaking tub and butler service. Everyday after our time in the pool I would use the soaking tub and drink a glass of champagne. All drinks and food are included so you could drink all the champagne you like. I would really recommend butler service. They rotated three butters for us as each had a different shift. All three butlers were very attentive. We had a Royal Royce picked us up at the airport and took us to the hotel. When we arrived to Sandals we were greeted by our butler and offered wet towels because it was so hot. The butler took us on a tour of the facilities then accompanied us to our room where we were served champagne and appetizers. The butler would make sure we had pool chairs in a great location nicely arranged with a reserved sign each morning so we didn’t have to go early to get them. We received a phone with a speed dial to the butler and they would come right away to help you with anything including making sure we had a table at the restaurant and time we requested. It was our anniversary during our stay and we went back to the room our bed had large decorated swan towels on our bed rose pedals on the bed and leading to the soaking tub, a very nice touch.The large pool had a swim up bar and you had two options for pools one was a party pool and the other was a quite pool we liked the party pool because of the music and entertainment. There was also entertainment in the evening including a steel drum musician, the Junkanoo dancers, karaoke and dancing. Our stay exceed our expectations. We will definitely recommend this resort to our friends and we intend to visit Royal Bahamas Sandals again. Read less

We decided to book our weddingmoon at Sandals Royal Bahamian, and it was the best decision we ever made. From the moment we got there, we felt like we got 1st class treatment. Our wedding planner Latora made our wedding planning a breeze, and she captured our vision for our ceremony perfectly. Our photographer, Marvin, took us all over the resort and took the most elegant photos of us in our wedding attire. We will treasure those pictures forever. The evening we got married, we wanted to eat at Kimonos but they didn’t have a reservation available until very late. Latora was so nice and called us in some favors, and got us a reservation right at 6pm. Kimonos was our favorite place to eat during our stay, and our server Ludwig was so original with his hibachi routines. He had everyone at the table laughing and engaging with one another. The last person I’d like to mention is one of the swim up bartenders, Jakeem, because he was willing to make us all kinds of new, original drinks and even made us shots that tasted like wedding cake because he knew we were newlyweds. The whole experience was wonderful- the scenery, the people, the resort. We would happily stay there again and definitely will be booking with Sandals in the future. Thank you to everyone who made our first Sandals experience a memorable one. Read less

We celebrated our 5th year anniversary at this resort mid-August. The resort is gorgeous with breathtaking views. It is a short drive from the airport. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived around noon on a Friday. We were escorted across the property and allowed to select a restaurant for lunch. We did not need our Room number to eat at that time. We stayed in the Windsor penthouse ocean view club level room with a pool and oceanview. The Room was very clean. The property was very clean and well taken care of overall. We found the staff to be friendly across-the-board. There was a schedule of daytime and night time activities each night. I loved the junkanoo parade and fire show on Friday night and the reggae band on Saturday night! We enjoyed the food at each and every restaurant. I highly recommend this resort. We took advantage of the free photo session at sunset and purchased some great pictures! No major complaints at all! Read less
