    Love Sandals’ resorts, have visited several locations & each has had its own unique, memorable experiences. At the end, I look back & think about all the laughs we’ve shared with our friends & how life is about sharing the beauty of this world with others. Would highly recommend Room 7521 if you can splurge for it! Stanford & Bernard will take good care of you! Every meal we ate was excellent. The bar service in the main pool can be a little slow but may depend on the time of year you go. Housekeeping did a great job too! We had a seaweed problem first day but Sandals got right on it - was impressed with that! Take the Cool Runnings IV catamaran trip...AMAZING!! Overall, this resort was great & I hope to revisit them some day. Happy to help with any questions if you are heading that way! #BARBADOS2019

    Sandals Royal was beyond what we could have imagined. The restaurants were all top notch, we didn’t have to wait to be seated once. We got reservations through club sandals right when we arrived for the whole week. There are 5 restaurants between the 2 resorts that require reservations. Butch’s Chophouse on the other resort was our favorite but all were fantastic. Neptune’s has a Greek salad that was great. Kimono’s on the other resort was also a favorite with Jaman as our hibachi chef. Lastly spices and the coffee/donut shop were favorites for breakfast. We stopped there for an iced mocha each day before hitting the pool. We didn’t have a problem getting seats at the pool, we just put towels down before breakfast and returned around 10 when the pool bar opened. Reshaun at the swim up bar was the highlight of the trip, took great care of us and make all of our drinks “with love” as he always said. We particularly liked the south seas pool because it had a swim up bar and the music was better. The infinity pool has great views and is more of a party vibe with a DJ. The rooftop bar was great for after dinner cocktails and had great views and a flute player one night. We got some of our best pictures there too. We got a couples massage one day and that was fantastic, highly recommend if you have a spa credit. The beach was also beautiful. We did not spend too much time there but when we did it was great and the water temperature was perfect. One knock was the room service. We had a couple times were it took over 2 hours to deliver the food when they said 45 minutes. I would suggest just not using room service unless you have to because there are so many good restaurants between the 2 resorts. Overall the trip far exceeded our expectations. We were talking about when our next sandals trip will be before we even left.

    Once in a lifetime experience

    Great holiday. The resort has great amenities and amazing food in all 17 restaurants. Our butlers Krystal, Shawn, and Benita were amazing and looked after all our needs. The butler service rooms are well worth it but definitely spoils you as I don’t think I could use any other category now!!

    Royal Barbados is truly one of the most exquisite Sandals we have ever been to. They take everything to the next level; the views and personal touches on property are incredible and the service is 5 star! Our butlers Shana-Kay, Shakira, and Makeba deserve a standing ovation for making our stay the best it could be, for tending to our every need & even some we didn’t know we had. We truly feel we’ve developed friends on this trip and will absolutely be back ASAP. This resort is a must visit!!!

    swim up was worth the money. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Steven from the swim up pool remembered our names from the first day we got there. Reynaldo (Rihanna's brother) was our first experience going to the resort. Very entertaining and he provided some "good to know" items for traveling outside the resort.... like cab fairs, where to eat, shop and not to wear camo... who knew it was illegal it wear that in Barbados. Overall great experience. Beautiful resort, they even have hummingbirds! This resort is great because you get two for one since the Sandals Barbados is within walking distance. Butches Chophouse is a must so remember to make those reservations in advance b/c slots are limited and for the places that require a dress code, please be sure to follow it.
