This is the 4th All inclusive holiday and my girlfriend have done in as many years and i have to rate this one as the best so far! Our holiday was for 7 nights, our first 3 nights was in the swim up rooms, followed by 4 nights in a honeymoon suite with a butler. We did kind of book last minute, therefore we did not get a great deal and that was also the reason for the room change to accommodate us. I would say this was an expensive holiday, however you do get what you pay for!. The rooms were ok, probably due a refurb soon, but all drinks were well stocked and topped up all the time. The service was honestly hit and miss to begin with, however, when we moved to the butler suite, the holiday took on a who new dimension thanks to our Butlers Sasha, Sakiera and Tamara. They basically looked after our needs for the next for day. Reserving pool/beach chairs for us in the mornings. Making reservations for restaurants in the evening, bringing food lunch and drinks to our chair throughout the day. We basically found our the meaning of Luxury Resort, thanks to our amazing butlers. To top it all off, the restaurant choice and facilities to keep you entertained were endless. Would definitely return to this resort in the future. Read less

We were very happy with the energy of the resort and the amenities. We were so impressed with the resort, we booked a trip for next year there. Our butlers were very good and help us truly enjoy the resort.

We have never been to a sandals resort before but have been to many 5 star resorts and this sandals resort was definitely not a five star...first of all it’s double the price and it’s not anything special in terms of service or rooms...the breakfast buffet is terrible and they run out of oranges for the fresh juice and don’t have enough bowls or plates they constantly run out and you have to wait to eat...that should never happen..at night when you want a martini they ran out of martini glasses and give you a glass that you would use for juice..really!!! No music on the resort because there music system was broken...the entertainment at night was also terrible...the chairs on the beach are cheap and a lot of them were broken...overall not a great experience...I would not recommend this hotel...

We didn’t know what to expect, but it far exceeded everything we dreamed for our honeymoon. Service was beyond amazing, food spectacular, weather glorious. We will be doing Sandals again, for sure. The entertainment at night was so much fun, beach party was wildly exciting, they give you a flag at the beach which you put up for drinks (heck yea) we stayed in a beachfront club level suite and our view was glorious! We utilized the free mini catamarans, snorkeling trip in Bridgetown, took a Safari trip if Island. Every step of the way the staff was kind and attentive. Oh and the spa.. the massage in nature was one of the best things I’ve experienced in life. We are thrilled! Up next Grenada! Read less
