This is one of the best resorts I have been to. The beach is absolutely great. It is large with exquisite sand. If you are a shell collector you will be dissapointed -- there are virtually none. This makes is great for wading, swimming, and walking barefoot since there is nothing sharp in the sand. The beach is about 1km+...

Beautiful grounds, lovely big pool, enough restaurants with the 3 new additions, great staff and only a 10 minute ride from the airport. We don't golf but the golf course is gorgeous. We love the quiet pool with its own separate bar and the fact that you can get cabana's for free at this resort makes it very enjoyable. There...

Had my honeymoon here & it couldn't have been more perfect. From booking, boarding planes, etc. Husband & I booked through the Sandals website because it was the cheapest (with airfare) & we searched for months. We came here on recommendations from friends who have been here before. Starting from beginning of the trip, you will land in Georgetown; the...

Our trip to Sandals Emerald Bay Bahamas March 13-20, 2017 was an uneven experience. We booked an ocean view room without butler service as previous experience with butler service at other locations did not add much value. Much more on that, later. First, the positives. The setting for Sandals Emerald Bay is beautiful. The grounds, pools (two: one large and...

Just returned from a fabulous 7 days at this resort. Facing Emerald Bay we were in the second building from the right. I read complaints of how far these rooms are from where the main entertainment and restaurants are located, I am 66 and it was never more than a 5 minute walk, helped burn off the calories from the...

We returned to SEB January 28-February 4, 2017 for a 7-night stay. We enjoyed our visit in 2013 so much that we couldn't wait to return! We were very concerned for our beloved Emerald Bay because of the hurricane last fall, but upon arrival at the resort it appeared as though it had never happened!!!! Getting thru the local airport...

The Sandals Emerald Bay is in Georgetown on the Grand Exuma Island in the Bahamas. This was our second stay at a Sandals resort. The flight in was uneventful but if you’ve never visited the Bahamas be prepared for things to be just a little different than you are accustomed to. The island is fairly small to begin with and...

We spent March break at Sandals Emerald Bay and had a fabulous time! The resort: We were thoroughly impressed with the resort. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and we had no complaints about our room. We were in Beach House 4 which was right outside Cafe de Paris and the quiet pool. It was a very central location but since...

Great place to get away and leave work behind. Read a book for first time in a year. Drinks were flowing and sun was shinning. Food was good but a little hard to get dinner reservations at all restaurants. Played golf, definitely bring 3 times more balls than you think you will need. Narrow fairways and a lot of heavy...

My wife and I just returned from a fabulous week at Sandals Emerald Bay, the jewel of the Bahamas, for our 40th wedding anniversary. The resort is immaculate, the grounds are beautiful, the beach is stunning, and the service was impeccable. We had a butler villa and our butlers, Henry and Sampson, did absolutely everything that they could to make...
