    We had a phenomenal time here. We booked a South Seas Swim-up room (SSUP) for 10 nights and were at the back of the resort. We were a little dubious about being at the back, as a lot of reviews said that it took ages to get anywhere from there. Well it took us all of 4 minutes to walk to the beach and lets face facts, it's a beautiful walk. The room was fantastically set out and spacious leading straight out into a relatively private pool area from our terrace. We ate at a few of the restaurants and found Butch's and Bombay to be our favourite for the evenings with La Parisienne our favourite for breakfast (but we didn't try them all).

    Thank you again, Sandals! This was our fourth Sandals trip in the third country. We had already been to Sandals Montego Bay, Sandals Negril, Ans Sandals Grande St Lucian. This was our first using the butler service and I have to say, we will always do this going forward! This newest Sandals was extraordinary, and set right next to the original Sandals Barbados doubling the amenities and dining options. We took this trip over the New Years holiday so had the added bonus of double fireworks displays along the beach which are so big, even the locals and the family’s of the employees come to watch from the public portion of the beach. The sand seemed even more fluffy and wonderful than the other resorts and while the beach is smaller than Sandals Negril, it was beautiful, and inspired everyone to take multiple photos all during the day. A double line of rocks added a breakwater making the ocean swimming easier and the pool was located directly next to the beach. The grounds were immaculate with so many floral varieties. The new rooftop pool, bar, and restaurant were spectacular as well. This is our favorite Sandals thus far and we recommend the Millionaire Butler Suite to others. We have already booked a future return trip to the resort and managed to snag one of the few oceanfront suites!

    My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon in March 2019. It was spectacular in every single way. We stayed in a South Seas Club Level Swim Up room. The room itself was extremely well appointed and comfortable. The in room bar was wonderful, especially the Caribbean rum! The main Infiniti pool is absolutely stunning. Amazing service the entire way through. We did a few excursions and learned to scuba dive. We booked a follow up trip to Grenada for July 2020 while on-site and got an amazing deal. We have since also booked a return trip to Sandals Barbados for Summer 2021.

    I am hoping that Shawn,from guest services reads this and gets touch as everything else I’ve tried has failed. We stayed in room 7210 from Jan 25th for one week. We were given a complementary couples massage due to the poor service we received whist on resort. I’ve contacted you many times to say that we’re actually charged for this and spoke to Shawn who said we would get a refund. We are still waiting. I’ve tried calling and emailing but nothing. I’m sure you have our details on file, please get in touch and refund our money.

    Having only just found time to write this review, I realise a whole year has passed by - we visited at Easter last year, 2019. As Sandals first-timers we were unsure what to expect and were expertly guided by Gillian Ashwood at We Travel To (look her up on Facebook) to a Butler Oceanview Suite with balcony overlooking the pool and ocean. We are not ones for fuss so were unsure about the whole 'butler' concept but would definitely recommend - Tony and De Angelo kept us well looked after. The resort was immaculate and, despite it being 'next door' to Sandals Barbados (with use of the restaurants etc on that side), we noticed no real division and having always wanted to visit Barbados, this is the place to stay. From simply having a wander about to walks along the beach and a couple of boat trips, we were never bored. Where else is it normal to drink Strawberry daiquiris at 10.30 after breakfast, at the bar, by the pool in the sun?! From room service morning coffee on the balcony, to lattes in the shade outside the Cafe de Paris , to breakfast on the rooftop at La Parisienne, to amazing steaks at both Butchs and Butchs Chophouse, we were spoilt for choice. We could not manage to get a table at Kimonos, despite having a butler, but were told it is definitely worth a try! Contrary to other reviews, we did not use our butlers to reserve sunbeds and had absolutely no problem at anytime throughout the day. The beach is immaculate and the whole stay was just lovely. We will most definitely return. TIP: Look up 'We Travel To' on Facebook - Gillian Ashwood knows her stuff!
