Not Sandals Quality

If you have never been to a Sandals before, you will more than likely be very happy with the experience. It is after all - Sandals. However, if you have been to a few Sandals before you WILL NOT be happy with Sandals Barbados/Royal Barbados. This has by far been the worst experience we have ever had at a Sandals and from speaking to other Sandals frequent visitors, they agree. While the property is beautiful and the staff is friendly, the service and food here are very low quality. You can wait anywhere between 20 - 30 minutes between courses at any restaurant and the food in some cases was inferior. Sometimes they forgot what we ordered and delivered wrong food and had to ask what our order was. This happened more than once. The management has always been open to listening to the concerns of the guests at other properties, in this case, it was shrugged off and rationalized by stating that there is "a transition in mgmt and many new trainees." While we understand that the Caribbean as a whole is very laid back, Barbados takes it to a level akin to disinterest. We are Diamond members meaning that we have been traveling to Sandals for many years, but many of the other guests had the same problems we did. We were taken aback. We thought it was just our experience. Sadly we will not be returning to Sandals in Barbados.

Sandals Resort, Barbados is AMAZING!!!

What a tropical, romantic, beautiful, and rejuvenating experience we had at the Barbados, Sandals Resort!!! We had a lovely room with a spectacular ocean view from the balcony. The Sandals Resort, like the entire island, is just stunning and lush with Caribbean Island flora. The all-inclusive resort has over 10 places to dine, and a variety of foods, and food types, to thrill your palate. The resort staff are utterly amazing and so gracious and helpful in respect to working hard to meet every need of every guest. You can stay on the property for your entire stay and have a ball, or visit parishes, such as Bridgetown, to experience and learn more about the triumphant Barbados culture. Sandals Resort nightlife consists of fun activities to see and/or do on the property. We also took peaceful strolls by the ocean in the morning and at night. You can dine by the shore, or sit by a fire pit as you rock in a lazy hammock for two - you get to decide what you want to do! Because this is a for grown ups only resort, the beautiful pools have bars in the middle!! Adults play volleyball in the pools, limbo by the pools, play basketball in the pools, and chill (or tan) by the pools. One day we also took a tour outside of the resort to all 11 parishes on the island, and learned about Barbados proud history. We absolutely hated to leave the island of Barbados and the Barbados, Sandals Resort. We are going to definitely go back again!!
