Very Good8.0
good for short family trip
Overall was good. I booked for 2 nights for family trip 2A2K, the resort is newly renovate and added some game center and also better kids indoor play area to make 2 of my boys busy. Will back again for short trip. The bad things is the floor outdoor is quite slippy especially during raining season.

We enjoy it overall and the hotel facilities is very nice! Suitable for family with kids. Just a note that the room floor and sofa chair is not clean enough.

Good6.0
Nice resort. Terrible food!
We had 3 nights in Sand & Sandals. Resort was pleasant and we enjoyed our stay. The down side was the food and general cleanliness. Rooms were dusty. Cups and plates not cleaned well & breakfast was terrible. They didn’t replenish breakfast and by 9:30am everything was gone. We ended up leaving the resort for food. Kids loved the boat themed beds and the games room.
