This was our second time to this resort. We have stayed at several Sandals properties. This was our first time to attend the Chairman's Golf Tourney. It won't be our last. First, it should be noted that Dream Makers Vacation Services came through again for me. You know, whether you deal with Amy or Robyn or anyone with their company,...

Stayed at Emerald Bay for a week in February as we were there with a group. Overall, it was a good visit and we had a pleasant time. A few things to consider if you're looking at the property. PROs (in no particular order): -Relatively close to airport, so transfer only took 10 mins -Hotel grounds are phenomenal, just gorgeous....

This was a return visit, something very rare for us as there are so many lovely places in the world to explore. I read many of the comments before, during and after we left on our extended tour of an additional three islands. This is an objective and considered assessment. The site is simply fantastic, over 500 acres of land...

We traveled Feb 22-27th & this was our first Sandals trip. I have to admit I was a bit nervous as I had read a lot of negative reviews on here about Sandals Emerald Bay. After going there I can honestly say those people who gave bad reviews must be super nit picky, hard to please, difficult people because my...

the restaurants that you needed to make a reservation at we're great but they would not allow you to dine there more than once. the food offered at the buffets was fair at best. the alcohol they offered was wartered down including the beer. they would tease us by bringing us 4 Coronas a day and when we asked for...

This was our fourth trip to a Sandals resort, but our first time to Emerald Bay. Our overall perception of the resort was awesome. All Sandals resorts have their good points and bad depending on your own personal preferences. I will start with what we thought were draw backs. Mostly for me it was the fact that the scuba diving...

We had good relaxing vacation. We enjoyed the resort ground, the pool, the beach and most of the staffs. They tried their best to squeeze us in the Italian restaurant on Feb. 14 2015, which is our 35th anniversary. Thanks to the young lady at the club lounge who gave us an anniversary cake. Our room was clean, a special...

Stayed 5 nights from Feb 19-24. Weather was decent, but was a little windy and chilly at night, so I would recommend going probably early March or later as you could depend on better weather.
