Butler crew made the vacation!

Jeremy B (East Meadow, New York) on May 23, 2024

Please read other reviews about the resort, I agree with some of the issues others experienced and also agree with some of the praises others have experienced as well. My wife and I stayed at the Royal side for a week (5/15-5/22) and if it was not for our butler crew, it would have been a much different experience for us. Want to give a HUGE shoutout to our butlers - Shak, Kev, Ron and Romero. Unfortunately Ron had a family emergency that cut our time short (hope you are doing as well as you can Ron, hoping that time will help heal the wound). They were on top of everything we needed, ensuring we had a spot at the beach (and had lunch/drinks while at our seats), dinner reservations each night at the time we requested (even if the original time reserved was asked to change), and most of all they put all their effort into us having the best vacation within their power. Always positive, energetic, personable, friendly and smiling. These gentlemen deserve a raise for their hard work and dedication! Thank you thank you thank you!

Most uncomfortable, noisy bed and poor service

Michelle D on May 22, 2024

This was our first sandals trip and it will be our last. We spent a lot of money and did a butler room. We expected to have a good night sleep and the bed was the most uncomfortable and loudest best I’ve ever used. We asked for a pillow topper the first night and it did not make it any better. They also had us fill out a questionnaire before with pillow information and food requests and none of that was in the room. We asked for the foam pillows again and never received them. At one point- they had also run out of towels and said there was a problem with the towels at this time. When we first arrived- we weren’t greeted by anyone for at least 45 minutes. We came in a rolls Royce for the butler service and did not receive a proper greeting. Our butter finally came over to us and sat us for a lunch. We then waited for our room. Once our room was ready- we had to wait another 2 hours for our luggage to get there. We felt like we had to tip our butlers more and more just to get any service when we had already paid a large amount for the trip. The butler was also 45 minutes late from the time he said he would meet us for check out, and he never helped retrieve our luggage. We were not impressed with the alcohol. There was no captain morgan anywhere and Tito’s ran out extremely fast. The food was good but the service was very slow and time consuming. Additionally- we left a review from the survey Sandals sends out and I also sent an email to their customer service. No one ever contacted us about our terrible stay. It seems like there have been several bad reviews lately and I would not recommend.
