Be warned long review.
My husband and I have stayed for 6 days. We are in a butler suite with a hot tub and small pool on our porch. Room 5112 to be exact. The review of the room is wonderful. We have a nice size king bed, wonderful bathroom with a soaker tub for two. If you are not tub people an open air shower in there for your use. His and her sinks and a vanity area . There are two closets that held our large suitcases well. We have a separate living room area with small bar and fridge. The porch was where we were the most. The hot tub ( although not the hot we are use to) and small (very cold) pool were great when we didn't want to be with a crowd.
On to the resort itself. Smaller than we thought it would be. I know from reading that it is said to be the smaller one for the Sandals but still surprised. We were close to the daytime party pool. This is the location of the swim up bar. Never full when we went but loud due to it being the main place to drink while in water. Further down was the "living room".This is where during the day games, pool, ping pong tables, swings, and more. This is covered with fans for it did get warm outside. There is a bar in this area as well. At night most of the get together parties took place here. Next is the other pool and hot tub. This is a little quieter and close to the beach. Now the beach was small but worked great. There were different areas to lay and get in the bay like sections. My husband loved this. Some waves but nothing you would surf on. There was water sports you could do but with water conditions we could not. One thing that bugged my husband was we read that snorkeling was included but you needed to by the set to do the activities.
On to food. We ate at many of the restaurants. I have a food allergy so I was having a very hard time with some places. Breakfast was good but the same buffet at only two places each morning. Now our biggest issue was lunch. There was either pizza or one other restaurant that had the same thing everyday. Today we could not even eat there due to a special event so pizza again it was. The Paris Cafe was wonderful but only has sweets and coffee.
Butler services. Upon arrival it seemed like a dream. Warm towels, a fresh drink and the promise to be blown away. Well I am not saying that every moment with the service was bad but we did have some issues that made it seem as if we wasted a lot of our money. The good moments were having some sodas in our fridge. A place with cooler at the pool or beach if wanted. A surprise drawn tub with champagne and candles. Now the bad. We would not hear from the butler but maybe once a day and felt bad if we called. One butler did not show up to take us to our table for dinner and found us 20 minutes into our meal. Multiple times when calling was told they would call us back and if they did it was 30 minutes later. If we were not at the pool or beach would get a call about we need to be out there or someone would need our spot. We were told all places reserved were will 11pm. No also if you are not at your spot by 11am you lose that spot. Also word of warning SCHEDULE YOUR OWN EXCURSIONS. We had a terrible time when we were told by our butler it was scheduled only to find out they don't do this tour on weekends. Then they lied to our face that another excursion was set up and it was not.
Over all about this sandals. Great location, nice grounds mostly friendly staff. Now we feel that we should have saved money and not got the butler but then again we loved the room. If you are looking for quite, relaxing, plenty to do I would maybe look elsewhere. It is more like the main goal was how drunk you could get and party. I know that is great for some but we were looking more relaxing and fun activities. All in all we had more fun on cruises and spent way less money.
