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...

We visited Sandals Emerald Bay again in March with another couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary! As always this is my favorite beach all inclusive destination and again everything was perfection! We were supposed to go in December but the hurricane affected our travel plans and Sandals helped us reschedule to March. Lots of great changes since the hurricane. The...

First trip to Bahamas. Wedding and anniversary celebration. Overall the facility was wonderful. The most memorable aspects were the water tour trip, water sports on the site , the variety of beautiful spots on the property, even if you wanted privacy. Equal to the beauty of the place was the friendly and accommodating staff! Well worth the cost. Highly recommend!

This was our second trip to Sandals Emerald Bay and it was even better than last year if that's possible! Excellent service, clean spacious room (did not get Buttler this time) which means that you have to make your own dinner reservations but not a big deal). All staff very friendly, helpful, polite and welcoming. Food was very good in...

Pros: Beautiful resort, our room was great, the beach and ocean are outstanding. Food was good we never had a bad me but none of the food blew us away. Service was very good, I would say if we had a request they did their best to address it. It was windy for most of our trip which meant they...

We came to sandals emerald bay with another couple - had a great time. Resort was fantastic. Service was warm and friendly. Accommodations were very roomy and comfortable. Island was fantastic. If you enjoy a peaceful trip with perfect Caribbean water with activities available when and if you like -- this is the place.

We have stayed many nights at Sandals Resorts, but this was our first time at Emerald Bay. It is now our favorite Sandals! A beautiful property only 10 minutes from the airport. Comfortable rooms with all the amenities you want. Eight restaurants with just about any kind of food you would like and all nicely decorated. Large beautiful sandy beach...

Pros: Good food. We liked the new restaurants, especially Bombay. Beautiful grounds. Cons: Waiting 2+ hours to get into our room that was supposed to be ready in 30 minutes, only to find a complimentary bottle of wine in an ice bucket WITH MELTED ICE. High winds made the windows whistle to a point where sleep was difficult. It took...

Beautiful resort in Exuma. Our sea view room was very spacious and had a great bathroom. Grounds and gardens beautifully maintained and good service from staff. The clear blue waters and soft sandy beach was the best we have ever seen. Large quiet pool area which we loved but the main pool is good too if you want more noise...
