Loved the private island!

Sandals Royal Bahamian is very unique -- interesting set up with the buildings and suites, but i loved the private island. You take a small boat over, beautiful beach on the other side, very fun! Thank you to my travel agent Ryan of VIP Vacations (vacations by vip . com ). He pulled in my repeat guest credit (been to a Sandals or Beaches? $250 off your next stay for the first time signing up!), everything was smooth.We stayed in the Balmoral tower, beachfront club level so we had the concierge service. They set up the dining reservations, and hlped make our room that much more special for my girlfriend.Gordon's on the pier is a unique setting, with water on each side. I had the steak, but also just enjoyed soaking in the view. If you like Hibachi, I always recommend Kimonos for a Caribbean Inspired asian meal lol.Any questions? Feel free to PM!

Worth every penny

Best holiday for couples. So many wonderful restaurants and brilliant pool bar service is second to none and the staff are so good. Would definately go again. Google it and see everything they have to offer.

Excellent but a few tweaks needed

My husband and I visited this Sandals resort for our honeymoon. It was a really lovely hotel, very clean, good facilities, great beach and fantastic service. We really enjoyed our week here but there was just a few things that stopped us rating it 5/5. We were looking forward to having a massage and when we saw the spa prices they were outrageous charging £330 for a couples massage, needless to say we decided not to bother. Also on the beach there is not enough shade from the sun. There are cabanas you can rent for £110 a day, but that is daylight robbery. The remaining sunbeds are mostly all reserved by the rooms with butlers leaving everyone else having to sit out in the burning sun! We ended up getting up at 7am to try to get a shady seat so watch out for that. They need more umbrellas it's not good for customers to be out in the sun all day. There is also relentless guys walking up and down the beach asking you to buy stuff or sign up for trips which is a bit annoying. Lastly the food at the Italian restaurant was not great, it was the worst meal we had as all the others were very nice. The best meal was at Gordon's on the pier and had a lovely setting. Overall the people were great, the room cleaner was very good and we would rate the whole place as 8 out of 10 so very good really, just a few tweaks and it would be perfect.

fabulous overall experience, butler service recommended

superb overall experience, restful and enjoyable. landed off a long flight, and was picked up from the airport by a lovely Rolls Royce limo, one of a dedicated fleet the resort maintains. (also dropped off by same limo when leaving).was seen to the room by one of the (3) Butlers who were on duty, pretty much round the clock. though we originally scoffed at the 'butler service' idea, it turned out interesting, worthwhile and excellent - they arranged access to 'fully booked' restaurants, reserved loungers at pre selected locations by the pool or beach, organised on-the-beach lunch and drinks, and - as an amazing feat - a super late check-out on the last day, as our flight did not leave till mid evening. Eckron the butler just said 'leave it to me...' and took care of it. Antonio the butler (also known as Denzil Washingtons' double..) was superb and took supreme care at making sure every whim was taken care of - direct dial phone was provided.The food was excellent - reasonable selection of eateries on the property, with the Sushi place being the favourite - worth visiting several times. the Christmas celebrations were pretty nondescript, but the New Year party was amazing. best fireworks we have ever seen at a private resort - seriously better than the 'plush' Atlantis resort up the coast...however, the overall evening entertainment was disappointing - pretty uninspiring, and can only be described as 'could do better - MUCH better'. the staff were friendly, attentive, and provided overall excellent service, without being pushy or intrusive.the weather was a little cloudy for Bahamas, but still came back with best tan it was Sandals, there were no 'little people' about, so proved to be a superb place for rest and relaxation.we went on a few external excursions, which were interesting and worthwhile. we managed to get to the annual (New Year's night) Junkaroo celebrations and floats party - totally amazing experience which starts at 02.00, and finishes at 14.00 in the afternoon... music, entertainment, colours and dance - a feast for the eyes and senses (we called it a night at 06.00...).will certainly go back to Sandals, and possibly to same resort in Nassau.recommended.

Dishonest Establishment

We were some of the unfortunate folks who had our trip cancelled the last couple of months due to their 'emergency repairs.' When they called us, we were given two choices; cancel or take a 'garden view' room at Emerald Bay. Emerald Bay does not offer the same amenities as Royal Bahamian, and we told them we are coming to the Bahamas for the beach, not a garden. We were told if we rebooked within one year, that we would receive two nights free. I was online with them almost an hour today to try to rebook for next year. They would not honor the two nights free. They said the agent didn't note it in her records; therefore, they would not honor it. I had it in my notes from the conversations. I'm very disappointed in Sandals. Needless to say, we will not be spending any of our money at any of their resorts.
