Red Lane Massage

5PMsumwhere on Jan 26, 2023

Be aware!! I have had many massages within Sandals and outside of Sandals and this facility was extremely poor. This is apparent with the staff standing outside of the facility trying to get guests into their facility

Total Relaxation!

58valerief (Pikeville, Tennessee) on Jan 26, 2023

This was our 2nd trip to Southcoast. Once again, we were treated like royalty! Here are a couple of things to make your stay even better. 1. Make dinner reservations for Schooners and Eleanors immediately upon arrival. Go to culinary desk in lobby. 2. If you are an early riser, let housekeeping know and your room will be cleaned before noon. 3. Take the Garden Tour with Recardo. He is very knowledgeable about all the plants, trees and shrubs. 4. The YS Falls tour is additional money, but we'll worth it. The guides are fabulous with taking pictures and getting you safely up the falls. 5. The French Village rooms are in need of refurbishing, but we love the location so we chose to stay. 6. Pickleball coaching with Norman really increased our level if play. 7. Do enjoy the CBD massage at the spa. Again, well worth the extra cost. Best vacation ever!!

Sandals South Coast private car - avoid if possible

David J on Jan 26, 2023

Beautiful property, very quiet if you want it to be. Very active if you want to hang by the pool. Great diving crew and convenient as the boats are all on the property. Food was average in most restaurants the exception being Schooners lobster supper was superb and the Lamb chops at Giuseppe’s also a big hit!

2023 SUP - Dutch Beachfront Swim-up Club Level Honeymoon Suite with Patio Tranquility Soaking Tub

Kenneth G on Jan 26, 2023

Only minor issue was the lounge chairs in the swim up area needs to have removable patting; as they every uncomfortable. We had to use many towels in order to use. Room Service was excellent. Lighting in the living area could stand to be increased.

Nice resort - way over priced

SUSANDesPeres (DES PERES) on Jan 25, 2023

We stayed for 10 days in January 2023-club level Italian village beachfront walkout. We enjoyed our stay. Shout out to Melissa and Javel who made our cabana days wonderful. LaShauna and Aliea took great care of us during our couple's massage. Kenroy was very helpful on the beach. We took the Sandals private transportation to and from the resort-Wendell and David made the long drives enjoyable. Overall the food was good and the service in the restaurants was good. The beach is nice if you plan to lay on the beach in the sun. The ocean is part of a nature preserve and has a lot of sea grass. So if you like to wade/swim in the ocean, this is NOT the place to do it. There are areas where the ocean is somewhat more clear, but this will usually involve a long walk and is not convenient. The resort is fine, but not outstanding, and it is WAY over-priced! We have been to other all inclusive resorts (Secrets and Excellence) and we have enjoyed them more (saving about 1/3 of the price we paid at Sandals.) The rooms at the other resorts were larger and better equipped; our room was not much larger than a standard hotel room. The bathroom at this Sandals was very small; one sink with bath/shower combo and toilet in same space as bath/shower. Beachfront in our case involved a walk of 30-40 yards across a courtyard. Our walkout "patio" was barely large enough to accommodate two chairs and a small cocktail table. And I think it is a rip-off that you have to pay to be at club level or else you can't get room service. Seriously? They say the little things make a difference and this was very true with our stay: 1. Club level for us included a bar in our room. The bar was nice but the quality of the liquor was sorely lacking. Romaine approached us on the beach one day (see #9 below) and we asked if it was possible to get a better bottle of vodka (Tito's) for our room. He told us it would either be in our room or he would return to explain to us why he could not provide it - never got the vodka and never saw him again. 2. The large jacuzzi that is a main feature of the courtyard outside our room NEVER worked (even after we used "the loop" to inquire about it.) 3. The ice machine nearest our room was broken 8 out of the 10 days we were there (again notified the loop). 4. The drain in the bath/shower was broken. 5. Housekeeping left the sliding doors to our patio walkout unlocked after visiting one day. 6. Visible stain on counter from coffee maker AFTER housekeeping visit. 7. Restaurants had no Pinot Grigio or Cabernet for at least two days. 8. "Public" men's rooms outside Bayside restaurant and near Dutch pool both had hand dryers that didn't work; "towels" provided to dry your hands were no more than tissues. 9. At some resorts you find yourself getting "hassled" by peddlers on the beach. Here we were approached by Sandals employees. At least 3-4 times a day we were approached to book a spa appointment or book a photography session or book our next stay at Sandals. ENOUGH - I am on a quiet beach reading a book in the shade...I don't wish to be bothered.
