    My husband and I stayed at the Sandals Royal in Barbados and decided we would try the butler level. Let me tell you what a FANTASTIC experience this was. Our Butler Nicholas started our experience and we were not disappointed. Nicholas was a true professional he catered to our every need without us even asking him to. Nicholas went above and beyond to make my birthday truly memorable. Nicholas, Latonya, and Toria were a fantastic team, taking initiative reserving our cabana and packing our cooler with whatever we wanted. Then the pampering continued with their thoughtful deliveries of fruit platters, surprise frozen drink picks, cheese and cracker plates, pizza, quesadillas and late afternoon ice cream cones. Nicholas, Latonya, and Toria worked so hard to make our stay extraordinary!! They are an outstanding team and truly so professional when it comes to making someone feel catered to and pampered. Nicholas, Latonya and Toria were AWESOME!!

    Fantastic Resort, Friendly Staff

    We recently stayed at the Sandals Royal Barbados. We had a terrific stay. Our room was great with a view of the ocean and the main pool. We had butler service and Chad, Ashley and Shakira were incredibly helpful making our stay even better. They anticipated our every need (even when we didn’t know we needed it!) and pampered us throughout. We alternated days between the beach and the European pool - always had our spot to enjoy the scenery and the beach is terrific and nicely walkable and entry into the sea is gradual with a sandy bottom. Made for a great swim. Pool was also perfect - either spot ever felt crowded. We had dinners at Portofino’s, Bombay, Chi, Butch’s, Schooners, Kimono, and La Parisienne - every one of them provided stellar service and great food. It was fun to have something different to try every night. We had lunch at Neptune’s every day - always tasty. There was entertainment in the evenings as well as games and bowling if people wanted. We thought it was terrific that they put up a screen in the central garden with loungers and chairs to watch the season opener of Game of Thrones - a lot of fun for everyone. The resort went above and beyond to ensure guests enjoyment. And our butlers made our stay memorable and special. We will be back. Thank you to everyone, especially Chad, Ashley and Shakira.

    Amazing Resort!

    We just got back from a week at Sandals Royal Barbados and had a fantastic time! We had decided to splurge a little and book a rondoval suite with butler service and were so glad we did! Our butlers - Ron, Shaq, and Paul, were the best crew ever!!! They did such a great job taking care of us! Not only did they spoil us but they were so welcoming and put a smile on our faces each time we saw them-we couldn’t have asked for anyone better! The waitstaff, pool attendants, housekeeping, everyone was friendly and genuinely concerned about making sure our vacation was the best it could be. The ladies in the donut shop, Ashley at Butches, Ron the chauffeur, Diane the house attendant, the swim up pool bar staff by Chi’s, and of course the supermen Ron, Shaq, and Paul, were a few of the standouts! We loved the resort and our accommodations-and in fact, other than a couple of diving trips, never left the premises. We had everything we needed right there! Truly an all inclusive resort! Great food, special people and an amazing location made for one of our favorite vacations! We will definitely be back ??!

    We just came back from a great week at Royal Barbados. We were here last February and the resort has improved with more lush rounds and smoother service particularly the butlers. Shout out to Team 1, Bryan, Rasheid and Damien for great service and friendliness.They had great energy and availability. There are boundless choices for food and drink and everything was great, Candlelight dinner on the beach was very special with great food and prosecco. Still underwhelmed with the food and menu at the La Parisienne. A tiger prawn is not the same small shrimp that comes with the shrimp cocktail. Asian fusion CHI and Indian bombay were spot on with authentic flavors . Jerk Shack another place where you get real flavors with chicken, fish in foil and sweet potatoes , Carribean soul food. Spa is beautiful and nicely appointed. Best Sandals resort for food and room quality.

    This was our first visit to a Sandals resort and we were very impressed with the product. We had a garden view room with a hot tub on the balcony. The room was very large and comfortable with an excellent en suite bathroom. Drinks were provided in a well stocked fridge which were replenished every day. There was a great beach with plenty of umbrellas and lovely swimming pools, one in particular had a glass surround which was fun. There was a great choice of restaurants and even though we didn't use the butler service we managed to book the places we chose to eat at without too much of a problem. The resort has wonderful tropical gardens and a variety of seating areas to suite all tastes. There is a great coffee shop that has very nice ice cream available. We found the resort to be very quiet and relaxing and surprised at how many older people stayed here.
