  • 4.0.Fair

    The overall staff was pretty good, we had problems with room services every night ( no clean washcloths ) also had problems getting into restaurant(s) that didn't take reservation...Treated people with butler services, first priority on restaurant, pool service, etc... Had to call manager at one restaurant because we were told we have over an hour wait time ( it was 10 or more empty tables in plain site that was empty. At another food place food was cold , brought out soda with no ice.....Some resort staff walk pass us without asking did we need anything.....Every night I had to call housekeeping for washcloths..every night ….. Last night at resort bed wasn't turn back, dirty towels left on bathroom floor....this is a 5 star resort, didn't seem like one....Some.people are treated different than others.....Some places we wasn't even asked to be help after standing there we had to ask them for help but others walk up after us they were asked can they help them. Don't know if I ever revisit this resort hope management will see to things getting and people treated the same.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Liked the location and setting of the property. Room was as pictured on line. Staff were friendly and helpful as could be. Only minor complaints were there were never the proper number of towels and rarely any wash cloths left... we had to call for additional almost nightly. Also the music throughout the property always seemed a bit too loud (especially in the restaurants) and we missed hearing more steel drum/island style version, especially of holiday music.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Pros: clean, friendly staff, quick room service, facilities and pool were nicely kept. There is a bowling alley, games, shuffle board, etc. - things to do was plentiful. Cons: the food was sub-par and at times disappointing (stale cereal & crackers, watery eggs, mostly bland, the sushi tasted like grocery store sushi); we felt for the amt of $$ we spent, the food should be a lot better. Also, at times the food staff gave us attitude (we received a couple of eye rolls). The entertainment can be better as well - we went to a Christmas play and the performance was cringeworthy. Over all this place was very nice, clean, welcoming and we found things to do. But not worth the cost. We most likely won’t return.

    Food was very good but service at restaurants was very slow - breakfast and dinner took 2 hours. Never got refills on coffee and sometimes had to beg for it repeatedly. Air conditioning was so so (did not go below 68) and some of the rooms smelled moldy. They did move us to a new building. Beautiful water and beautiful resort. We had a great time.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The resort was absolutely beautiful, clean, easy to navigate and had everything you could ever possibly want. I’m talking you can even have a butler if that’s what you like! Multiple huge wonderfully kept pools, hot tubs, a spa that allows you use of The saunas and steam rooms of services are used at all through the week. The only complaint I really have is that my doors to my balcony in my room (club level oceanfront) wouldn’t close to make contact with the device that triggers the ac on when it is closed. On the last day I couldn’t get the door working at all. Maintenance came at 9pm though and did what they could do the ac was put into an auto mode but it wasn’t the best. Also they never had vanilla ice cream when I was there!!!! They were always out at the cafe de Paris (a wonderful little treat but open from like 8am-10pm). But I left here literally booking another trip to another sandals location and I intend to revisit this location.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Extremely understaffed and even though it’s an all inclusive we were not able to obtain reservations at the better restaurants, even though the hotel was only about 50% booked. Also, our reservation at the spa was not upheld due to the barber being “out to lunch”, in addition we ended up walking out of one of the better restaurants after we were not seated at 10PM for a 9:30PM reservation. Very disappointed with everything to say the least. We ended up checking out of the hotel 2 days early as we felt the resort ruined our honeymoon.

    For years, we have seen the television commercials advertising Sandals Resorts, with 'unparalleled five-star service' and the exquisite accommodations, locations and magazine worthy actors. We were lured in by the promise of an unforgettable vacation where you are treated so special, like royalty - because you deserve the trip of a lifetime. We met many lovely guests while at the resort - from Canada, England, Michigan, Texas, Kentucky and many other places. All traveled far, and many have been to multiple Sandals locations. They ALL agreed that this was, by far, the worst service they ever received. It is a shame, because we saved and waited a long time to go to a Sandals. Property is pretty and well maintained but a little tired and in need of some renovations. Service at this Sandals resort is NOT five-star - lots of grumpy, grouchy people that seemed annoyed to be working there. Service across the resort is inconsistent as is drink choice/quality/preparations. We would like to try some of the others (Antigua, St. Lucia) but are hesitant now. It is not inexpensive and for what you pay, you shouldn't need to purchase the Butler level to feel like you are an important guest. ALL guests should be important and made to feel special for what you spend to stay. We still made the very best of our trip and enjoyed ourselves. After all, it is a week off from work, in a resort on a Caribbean island. Just don't expect Five Star Service at this Sandals as advertised.

    The property was very well maintained and clean. There are numerous free activities and many other exciting options to choose from. The restaurants are awesome and the buffet has a lot of great selections. Everyone is always friendly and the service is great. The only thing that I would change is it would be helpful if the stores or lobby could provide change for US dollars when reguested. We had the need for some smaller bills and it was even tough to find change for a $20 or $50 dollar bill.
