The worst experience of my life

Boston, Massachusetts

This place is old, gross, had mold and had terrible service. I had to leave early due to the fact our bathroom had mold and ants with a broken bed. Even though we got their luxury package with butler. The butler service is slow because they are over booked. Each butler had way too many people. Even though we were suppose to stay till Monday we have left early and we’re told they don’t die refunds even though it was a health risk to be there. They also have live performances till 1 am or longer so getting sleep was hard. This was the worst i lost out on 5k. We are now staying at the Atlantis and honestly it’s cheaper and way better! The money you spend at the all inclusive stuff isn’t worth it at all never go back ever! They said that instead of a refund they can give me free nights to go back. I can’t wait to get home and have a lawyer look at this. The new ownership is terriblez

Worst Vacation

I arrived at Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort on August 12th with my husband. Our vacation was planned with another couple our friends. When we arrived at Sandals we waitied for our rooms, which they had already been waiting over an hour when my husband and I arrived. Manager of Sandals Royal Bahamian Ms. Q, spoke with both couples and apologized for the delay. She stated we both would be given an upgrade and $100.00 credit for the inconvenience. She also stated that we were not to unpack our luggage, because we would be upgraded again on our 2nd day. My friend husband told her that was not necessary, but she stated we had to move again. So we planned our day according to what we were told. My friends checked the concierge to make sure we were all set for the move, due to Ms. Q being off today, which was Tuesday. She stated we would be well taken care of an did not have to worry. I called the bellman desk and I was also informed not to do anything my bags would be moved to the next room and we would be told after 2pm our new room number. At 2:30 pm all 4 of us went to the concierge desk and they stated we had already been given an upgrade and we could speak with a manager and they apologized for what was taking place. The gentleman at the concierge called and spoke with Ms.Q, not sure what exchange during that conversation, but we eventually spoke with a manager who apologized again told us we were in the upgraded rooms, but she did give the $100.09 credit which was supposed to be given to us by Ms. Q.We all left her desk on day 2 of our vacation to tray to enjoy the days we had left. Well on day 3 of our vacation we decided to have breakfast at the Baccarat restaurant and all of our food was cold. We did let our server know and we got I apologize once again, do you want to speak to my manager. We declined at what we could and left the restaurant. Trying to still make the best of a not so good situation. Day 4 we used the credit and was goibg to pay the difference and rented a cabana for the day. This was probably the best part of our trip. The 2 women who worked with us Sandra and Ms. N were amazing. After leaving the beach to get rrady for dinner, here I go again another issue. They left 2 wash cloths in our room and no towels. I could ot take a shower for 1 and half hour later. I called housekeeping twice requesting towels, then went down to fromt desk in a robe because an hour had passed. The gentleman at the desk called and told me towels would be in room 1401 in 10minutes. I waited an additional 10minutes and went back downstairs and told him I was ot leaving the desk until I got some towels, so my husband and I could take showers. This was my first time at Sandals and I do not everwant to go back. I travel 2-3 times a year and thus is one vacation I could ot wait to go home. I pray this review helps them get it together. I apologize does not cover the bad experiences over and vier again. I pray they get it together.
