We were notified in mid August by Sandals that our original Sandals booking at Sandals Royal Bahamian was cancelled. We were not advised the reason why but after a little detective work on the internet, we found that it was due to staff problems and also some areas of the resort required refurbishment. We were offered a holiday at the...

We were relocated here due to the closure of Sandals Royal Bahamian. We did have high hopes with this resort and I have to say, it didn't disappoint. The beach - I have to say, we did not think it was the most beautiful we've seen, I think it is very personal and does greatly depend on past experiences of...

Bahamas has always been a dream destination of mine so naturally I decided to book Emerald Bay for my honeymoon. Upon arrival to Exuma, we were greeted with Sandal's courtesy vehicles and we were all given cold water bottles. Since it was so hot it was really nice to have! When we arrived to the resort we were given cold...

My wife and I traveled to the Emerald Bay resort mid-September of this year. This was our fourth Sandals experience, our first at Emerald Bay, and the staff made this trip wonderful. Every Sandals is fun and beautiful, however we feel that the Emerald Bay staff made this visit better than the others. Although everyone was helpful and friendly, there...

Stayed in Sept 2016 just 3-4 weeks before Hurricane Matthew did its damage and closed the resort for a couple of months. Food was plentiful but not always as good as some UK chain restaurants. Drinks were plentiful only had one member of staff who was useful everyone else was very friendly and helpful. Went diving for the first time...

First off I just want to say this is the place to go if you don't plan on exploring outside the resort. Sandals is amazing and I will get into that, but it's not worth renting a car and driving around because there is practically NOTHING to do off site. That being said there's honestly not a huge need to...

From the moment we arrived, my husband and I knew we had made the right choice to get married at Sandals Emerald Bay. Sandals offer very attractive deals for their ‘WeddingMoons’ but we were stuck for choice as to which resort was right for us. After researching resorts we chose SEB because of its secluded location, but most importantly its...
