Beautiful resort

Lubbock, Texas

We visited here on 9/10-18. This was our first time in Exuma but not first time to Sandals. This property is breath taking. The property is old but well kept. The grounds are fabulous. The beach has plenty of chairs and the sand is soft. The water is some of the most beautiful water I have ever seen. The negative about the beach is there are sand fleas everywhere. These little bugs almost ruined our trip due to being miserable the entire trip. We walked fast to get in the water and sprayed off on constantly. We used oil to keep them a bay also. We have had to go to the Dr. at home due to over 100 bites. The pool is very large with lots of seating. The best part of the pool was the swim up bar staff. Akeem was awesome! He really made our trip at emerald bay. He was friendly and entertaining. Tevin did the same. We were there a week and not once did anyone come to our pool side or beach chair and offer us a drink. We thought that was unusual as there has always been poolside and beach bar service. This trip it didn’t matter as the resort was almost empty and we had no trouble going to the swim up bar and not to mention we got to interact with Akeem or Tevin. Towels were like gold at this resort. I would hate to see what it would be like at even 50% capacity. By 8:00 am there were no towels to be had. The butlers took them all to save chairs for their guest. Service was pretty much non-existent if you didn’t have a butler. They have relaxed their dress code at the restaurants which most of my party really enjoyed. They have also relaxed the reservation policy on most restaurants and that made things easier and more enjoyable. The staff for the most part were friendly. 3 people in our party got a horrible stomachs issue first day out and it remained until we got home. Princess in the gift shop was a life saver for me by helping me get some Pepto. Our room was skipped on the cleaning several days and we were constantly calling down for things she didn’t leave or just didn’t show up. They were very accommodating at the front desk. We took the swimming with pigs tour and even though it was very expensive we all felt like it was worth it. Over all we loved Emerald Bay and will without a doubt go back.

Overall resort was excellent, however drilling down regarding our stay, there were a number of disappointments. First, 3-4 restaurants were closed nightly, we had no notice and were not told of this until we checked in. Second, the check-in process was atrocious, took several hours to check-in and get our luggage. Only one restaurant had multiple beer selections, and that restaurant never open before 5:00. The food was very average at best. On the positive side, the pool staff was great, as well as the pool itself. If not for the beauty of Emerald Bay, this resort would suffer to survive. The golf course was great, however the pro shop had limited amenities, but staff was very helpful and provided good service.
