    My husband and I just got back from an 8 day vacation with great friends! We have been to multiple sandals resorts, and I can now say Sandals Barbados is officially my favorite!! Barbados is filled with THE MOST FRIENDLY people I have ever met, and also having 2 resorts right next to each other literally walking distance apart is a major bonus!! Despite some of the reviews I read prior to going (long waits for food/drinks, unfriendly staff, bad beach) this resort is far from any of those things! The beach was gorgeous, absolutely no sea weed might I add! The resort is on the Atlantic side so the water is more rough, but it is still as clear as can be! The food was amazing, and although we did wait at a few restaurants the staff goes out of their way to get you a drink or something in the meantime! While staying at sandals we did the snorkeling and glass bottom boat which were both included and had an excellent experience, the water is crazy clear and you get to see so many fish along with a shipwreck, and if you are lucky you get to see and swim with the sea turtles! We had a room back in the crystal lagoon and our room was very modern and always stocked with food/drinks. We had 3 butlers Abby, Archie, and Crystal who all were amazing! Especially Abby, she always went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed!! Lastly, the night life! Lovers lane is a must, even if you don’t want to bowl, they always have a good crowd, DJ, and games, along with bowling, however we normally found ourselves at the Piano bar with the best bartenders you could ask for!! Make sure you visit Steffan and Ramone both at the paint bar, as well as euegene at the bar outside the restaurants, Shane O in the English pub, and Larken during the day at the infinity pool!! These guys are very outgoing and make sure they are doing everything in their power to ensure you have a good time! They are also very knowledgeable about any and all alcohol!! I highly recommend this resort to anyone!! I can’t wait to return!!

    Great service from morning to night.

    From the first day we arrived we had nothing but good service from room, dinner, lunch to breakfast. At the pool they were there always to bring any type of drink you wanted. You can not go wrong with Sandals in Barbados. Everything is paid for food to drinks.

    1st and foremost, we've been to several different Sandals; so not our first review. Many Sandals promote the "pay & play" where their other options on the same Island (i.e. St. Lucia, Jamaica). are available but only by shuttle. NOT HERE!! I must say that this property(s) is / are KILLER! The best attribute is that the Royal is RIGHT next door. Literally 100 feet away...Another beautiful place!! Come on now; A fabulous roof top bar, Fantastic view of Barbados with jacuzzi and pool w/ infinity style water edges is a definitely a showstopper. Take full advantage of Everything & Everywhere w/ no hassles. All restaurants serve very good to excellent food.This coming from a chef w/ 37 yrs experience. They are all happily willing to adjust to any specialty food requirements as well. Buffet style breakfasts & lunches (but there are a few "off the menu" serve styles too (i.e. Portofino's)..They rotate the buffets daily, so fresh food variety is always there. All restaurants for dinner are also "off the menu" (which is great) because there's like 17 and no problems reserving somewhere...Landscaping is impeccable. Both are super clean! The Sandals Barbados is very private w/ their rooms all being tucked away down different paths. I actually like that better than the more open (and grand) style of the Royal. There's always a few things to mention (more observation than complaint): If you have a Crystal Lagoon room w/ balcony and soaking tub. It will tell you w/ "adjoining living room". That image usually represents a separate sitting room...It's not. Basically a small couch and chair in the actual room itself. Their description is it's an "open concept"...I was a little disappointed w/ that but it wasn't monumental. Staff is great...Note to management; believe it or not the pool bar (Sandals Barbados) bartenders were not so engaging. First time I've come across that. Was also mentioned by several guests poolside!! All others were extremely friendly and accommodating... It was almost comical because they must have just put Tito's vodka in their rotation (ALL top shelf stuff booze by the way) because they were struggling to keep it stock...Robbing from Peter to pay Paul all over the place... Absolutely a beautiful beach...SO, so clean!! Oh Yea, the weathers pretty damn nice too!!!! What can I say? it was our fav so far because of the "double trouble" impact! Just go and enjoy w/ no worries. You'll love it for sure!! PS...I already booked the Bahamas for next year :) We like to jump around!

    Just returned from Sandals Royal Barbados after a week in pure Paradise! The Butler Services were excellent and Princess, Shaquille, DeQuan and Christina far exceeded our expectations. The restaurants that we chose we all excellent and we were always greeted quite well. The variety of food was exceptional, however, I could not quite resist the steak and lobster dinners. We did celebrate my birthday on the beach with candlelight dinner and our attendant Deborah spoiled us. Additionally, Brian took took some excellent pictures for a great memory. We partook in the Atlantis Submarine Trip at night which took us down to 150ft. With plenty of fish and a couple of turtles to see. we also went on the Good Vibration 2 snorkeling trip, which has a great crew and saw a lot. BTW, if you need a taxi, ask for Rohan. Money well spent!
