Spent a couple of days on the offshore island, lots of spots to have a quiet day or hang out by the pool where Copeland the bartender keeps you enterained and of course pretty buzzed up all day haha. Overall very impressed with this resort, the staff and the overall sandals brand. Oh and I can't leave out the two resort cats that we loved to stop and pet daily. We are a crazy cat couple so the 2 little mascots were a great addition to the resort. Would return in a heartbeat! Read less

This resort exceeded our expectations for quality and location. We've done several all inclusive resorts with good results but this one . . . really good. Scuba Diving was great as I went two days, two tanks each day. The restaurants were easy to get into with very good food.

My daughter and I visited Sandals Royal Bahamian May 25-June 1, 2019, so not the conventional "couples" trip, but we still had a fabulous time! We stayed in the Windsor Honeymoon Oceanview One Bedroom Butler Royal Suite-WS, so had the Rolls Royce transfer upon arrival and departure, which we enjoyed. We were initially booked in the Royal Villas, but I was glad that I made the switch to the Windsor building, as it was close to the restaurants, pools, ocean, action, and excitement. Every evening before dinner, it was fun to sit on the balcony with a drink and listen to music near the pool/firepits or watch wedding receptions. We enjoyed breakfast on our balcony almost every morning, as well- we usually ordered from the french restaurant, Baccarat, which has a great A la Carte menu, and then we didn't have to sit down in the restaurant and wait to eat. We tried most of the lunch options, with the exception of the buffets, and our butlers brought us a lobster lunch to our pool chairs one day, which was delicious! We also ate at every restaurant for dinner; the service was efficient,the food was delicious, and the staff in the restaurants were very friendly. The resort and the room were very well-maintained and clean, as was everything on the private island. We did one excursion off-resort (through Viator) called the Nassau Walking Rum Tasting Tour, which was fun, and took the free shuttle over to Baha Mar one evening. Otherwise, most time during the day was spent at the Windsor pool, which has a very entertaining staff, and went to the private island twice to snorkel. In the evenings, we went to all shows, and after that, to the piano bar or The Cricketeer's Pub, which were all a great time! Again, all of the staff were great from beginning to end of trip, but a few that made our vacation an exceptional time include the following: * Denver & Zhaly (our butlers) two truly amazing, very nice people * Charmaine (housekeeping) always friendly & smiling * Shervin aka Fluffy (piano bar bartender) best of the best, and makes amazing drinks & shots! * Kisselle (Windsor pool bar) so nice & makes great drinks * Amanda & Ricardo (Cricketeer's Pub) two great bartenders * Rashando (Kimono's) very entertaining * Ian, Jason, Aleko, Shaunun, Peter, Monisha, Elteshe, Zoie, "Q." (Playmaker's) a huge part of why we had such a great week- all of them! * Jeva (head Playmaker) so energetic and fun * Beverly (in loyalty program) very nice Again, we had an amazing week! Read less
