Royal Shambles - avoid!

RajN935 (London) on Jan 15, 2022

Stayed for just a week at this place in early December in the newer Royal Shambles part. Not recommened - a lot of grief for a weeks stay Accommodation - Spent 5 days in a room whose air con fan was on high and would not turn down nor whose temperature could be. This meant all bed linen and our clothes were permanently wet, the room smelt of damp. Sleeping in a wet bed was horrible. Also could not get to sleep as it was like being on an aircraft. My partners asthma was aggravated so could not sleep.For one day we were told that the thermostats could not be adjusted and the air con needed to be high to avoid wet floors. Then next few days an engineer was called but nothing was done. Another day an engineer came at 11pm, changed the controller but said he understood the issue but that hadn’t fixed it and it would be addressed the next day. The next day nothing was done. Finally the following day we were believed, we packed and moved to another room. Much drier and quiter. It’s a shame that we were technically downgraded from a large garden room to a smaller first floor room. We were so fed up offered to pay for an upgrade - didn’t happen Housekeeping - No towels in room each day. Had to requested - No cleaning on some days. Somebody else’s shorts and cloths left in room - Another lady was heard complaining about balcony baths filled with birthday rose petals twice when it wasn’t her birthday! Admin, admin, admin - Half a day to book restaurants and activities. To save you time pay for the butler option! You can’t book anything before you arrive or on-line from your room. Totally inefficient Sporting/spa facilities/activities - If you haven’t opted for the butler option forget it - all sun beds on the beach are reserved from an in-mentionable time by them! - Turned up to yoga session on a Monday morning with other guests - no show from trainer. Some guests had been waiting 45 mins assuming earlier start time. Spoke to a member of staff who went away for 20 mins and came back and said trainer could not be contacted. Another day class full. Filthy yoga mats - Spent 3 hours asking various people to clarify the yoga timetables. All contradicting stories about times and days. In the end got a schedule for 4 days - Still people were turning up at wrong times again due to inconsistent messaging - Yoga mats totally filthy - everyone complaining about this. Also not enough mats. Turned up once and the instructors policy was no mat no yoga despite there being room - Tennis courts - nobody seemed to know how to turn the lights on. Spa just fobbed us off saying they came on automatically. They didn’t. An unmarked switch was located by us in the end - Excellent outdoor massages but £200 for 90 mins! Eating - As a vegetarian expect lots of processed fake meat dishes and processed American food - Spices restaurant - nothing spicy! Absolutely dreadful dishes. As vegetarians we orders some king of vegetarian dish and it was some kind of burritos made of uncooked flour - Greenhouse and heart and soul restaurants next door to each other but no idea how the seating works and what you can order from where - Nice Indian, French and Thai dining options - Empty sanitizer stations at many restaurants Staff - Staff are very polite and try their best but they are totally let down by the above points - Mask wearing very good Car hire - Efficient. No satnav so expect to get very lost!

Fabulous time in a lovely resort.

Dallyg (Worsley, United Kingdom) on Jan 12, 2022

We stayed at Royal Barbados 26 Dec 21 to 7 Jan 22 and had a fabulous holiday. We had a South Seas Swim Up Room Club level and it was wonderful. Its location is quiet enough for you to enjoy some peace and quiet but also close enough for you to walk to the main bar/restaurant area. The ability to step off your terrace into the lagoon is just wonderful. The Fridge was always stocked and the fact that they have Robert Mondays wines as house wines was an absolute plus. The fact that you can access the bars and restaurants at Sandals Barbados is a real plus since it gives you a great selection of restaurants to eat at. Particularly worthy of mention are La Parisienne, Butch's and Bombay - food was fabulous at each and if you want a great chilled lunch by the beach Neptunes is spot on. We did not have a Butler and were a bit worried given some of the reviews suggesting that if you didn't have one then you can't get restaurant reservations or beds by the pool or on the beach. This just was not our experience. We got reservations in every restaurant we wanted (maybe not our fist choice for times but we just had a drink in the Sky Bar which is fabulous) and we never struggled to get beds by any of the pools or on the beach. The one area that we wished we had a butler was with room service. This took nearly 2 hours to come despite us chasing and when it came the food was cold - this would not have happened had we had a butler. Also, we ordered Champagne for the room for new years eve so we could enjoy a drink before we went out - this never arrived again despite us chasing - a butler would i am sure have sorted this. The Champagne arrived the following evening! Hey Ho - we were in the Caribbean in a beautiful spot so it wasn't the end of the world. We made use of the Catamaran trip - this is a must - great swimming and snorkelling opportunities and some great hosts on the catamaran and we used the Spa which was lovely. The one thing that could be improved is communication re what is going on on the resorts entertainment wise. There is a small board near the Bowling bar but i do feel it could be communicated via the App or via the TV in your room. New Years Eve was a blast - really great fun and a spectacular firework display on the beach. Every member of staff we encountered was courteous and helpful and many go out of the way to be really friendly. We had never experienced Sandals before but we definitely will again and i would absolutely recommend Sandals Royal Barbados.
