Spent our 30th here, wonderful time

Silver Spring, Maryland

My husband and I spent our 30th anniversary here, first time at Sandals and the Bahamas. Overall, we had a great time despite the weather which is no fault of the resort .i can't say enough about the staff - very friendly. We didn't have butler service but our concierge Tanya went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable.our room was in the Balmoral tower and had a beautiful view and was very clean and fresh. Big shout out to housekeeping services, very friendly and did a fantastic job.We felt as if we spent too much since we couldn't do any type of water sport due to weather( we don't scuba dive) there again it's mother natures controll.The best resturants were Spices, Gordon's and Baccurat. Dinner at cassanovas was average, excellent salad bar but food was just warm and mediocre at best, same at the Crystal room food just lukewarm.Our suggestion to sandals is to have a change nightly in the dinner menus- same menu daily gets boring. As stated in earlier review beach is SMALL , the Sandals island beach is larger. FYI, the room bar is NOT premium liquor you have to special request and the room service was average.. All in all had a good time not worth what we paid for a Sandals resort.

Great Resort Unfortunate Weather

Plattsburgh, New York

We arrived to a beautiful day January 5th but unfortunately that was the last day it was nice for a week. It was unusually rainy according to the locals but we expected the weather to not be as tropical as Jamaica so we were not that surprised. The resort was great, compact and easy to learn where everything was. Some exceptional staff were Alexander after meeting him once, he remembered our names and some details that even surprised us, he always greeted us with a warm smile and we really enjoyed visiting with him. Venise was awesome at the Pub she was fun to joke around with. Sherwin aka Fluffy was my favorite, he is an awesome singer also....he always kept our glasses full and entertained us without being over the top. I loved his smile...sorry he is not going to be in Jamaica next month to sing with him. A negative was Anthony at the pool bar, he made me feel like I needed to apologize for wanting a drink, he was not impressive at all and should be relocated somewhere else. Almost grumpy to be around and made me grumpy after he grumbled at me. The hot tubs were not hot at all and the pools were chilly but that was probably because of the rain effecting them. We enjoyed ourselves we don't require too much entertaining. Piano bar was fun and the food was ok. We stayed in the Club level so we could have breakfast in our room which was fun. The check in process is still very annoying even when you check in online it is still painful sitting there we probably waited for about three hours to get in our room.
