    We spent 8 days and seven nights in butler room with a swim up pool! The room was amazing. Giant living area with a big bathroom. The patio and swim up pool was also great. It was great and had some privacy. The restaurants were good, except for the two steakhouses. They service was incredibly slow. That needs to be improved. The butlers we had were good. Moesha, Linnia and Ria did a great job with us!

    We had the most incredible honeymoon at Royal Barbados. We were lucky enough to experience the butler service during our stay based on the room we had booked. Whilst we were a little unsure about this at first, but our 3 butlers - Tre, Aqualia and Demar offered us a first class experience and one we will certainly remember for our first visit to the Caribbean. Nothing was ever too much trouble during our stay and they worked extremely hard to create a memorable stay - freshly run baths, unique towel creations and our favourite treats left in our room on return from the beach. The trio were all easy to chat to, well-mannered and genuinely cared about us as people. A special mention to Tre for being an ace pre-dinner photographer, to Aqualia for her delightful smile and always appearing at just the right time with our favourite snacks and drinks and lastly, Demar for his thorough introduction to the resorts and room as well as his happy-go-lucky personality which often made us laugh. Genuinely, we cannot thank them enough. When we do return for our next trip, I would have zero hesitation in requesting these guys to be our butlers again. The sandals resort itself is beautiful - manicured gardens, clean pools and comfortable sunbeds. The food was delicious and again, our wonderful butlers booked and made our reservations on our behalf. On the occasions we went to the bar ourselves, we were served by friendly faces who were always quick to make us feel at home and strive up conversations about our day. On days when we needed to peel ourselves away from our sunbeds we took part in a variety of games - cornhole/beanbag toss, beach volleyball and pool volleyball all of which were great fun. We didn’t see huge amounts of the entertainment as we chose to eat later in the night but the parts we did see were high quality and interesting to watch. A particular mention to Shaun from Sweet N Salty doughnuts for his brilliant performance during Festival of the Arts. We are now returning home after an incredible 3 week trip, that started in Antigua, feeling very relaxed and chilled. The whole experience was the perfect start to married life. Thank you Team Sandals!

    First time to Barbados and first time at Sandals (honeymoon treat---all inclusive isn't our normal holiday type). We adored both and will happily return. We didn't have a butler and had no problem whatsoever getting sunbeds and reservations at restaurants. It did seem quiet though in the first few days we stayed so maybe this was an advantage. Seaweed was regularly moved and caused no hassle; you can walk on the sand and swim in the sea. Yes the tractor was a bit noisy when working, but at least Sandals are trying to do something to make the beach 'perfect'. For us the food and drink was the knockout factor. I'm vegetarian so 'only' had 1 or 2 main options, which I would expect in such a venue... but it certainly didn't matter when they were such good quality. Every staff member we saw/met/passed was friendly and helpful. We had Room 7318 and had a beautiful view of main pool and the beach (loud music plays at the pool during the day and directs straight to our balcony so be aware if this will put you off--we liked it!) I can't understand the negative low reviews of this place, for us it was perfection. Thank you Sandals ??

    Amazing time, amazing staff

    Three things help Sandals Royal to stand out from the rest of the Sandals destinations; a beautiful environment, hugely friendly staff and excellent cuisine. Whilst these can all be found elsewhere, it seems to be elevated to the next level in this resort. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, and our butler team of Latonya, Tomeka and Dwayne have been exceptional. The rooms that we experienced were fresh, modern and immaculately clean, and every bar and restaurant was a pleasure to sit in, both for the food and the lovely decor. The grounds are stunning and the pools and beach are all excellent . A remarkable experience all round.

    Best stay yet, Head Butler Jane makes everything perfect! We were looked after amazingly. As always the food was brilliant and cannot be flawed! Will be back for sure. The Beach is kept beautiful. Nightlife is ample without having to leave the resort at all! We have been coming here for three years now and will be booking next years trip this week!
