Sandals Emerald Bay Sept. 7-14 It’s very rare that we would leave our pleasant late summer weather to travel south. But the pull of our favorite resort and the opportunity to see Greg Norman could not be resisted. What we encountered was hot, hot, hot…not only in terms of weather, but an entire staff who were enthusiastic and excited to...

We just got back from our trip to Sandals Emerald Bay and had an amazing time!! The hotel, staff, food and beach were all great. The nightlife was a little limited but thank you to Mikey Dreads and the Tropical Breeze band who came to our rescue! The band is amazing and so talented. Mikey Dreads (Michael Hoyte) is also...

I have to start by saying that I have been to the Sandals sister property of Beaches in Turks & Caicos (Beaches T&C) and had a awesome time so I was expecting the same again. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. If they could not help, they took you to someone who could help. THE STAFF GETS...

Sandals Emerald Bay is a beautiful resort with lots of gorgeous beach with lovely blue/green water. Stephen Clarke was our butler and he made sure we had what we liked and needed. Because of Stephen (he is now the head butler and deserves to be) we would not hesitate to take in this beautiful island again with Sandals. When there...

My wife and I stayed here August 16th through the 23rd. This is our third Sandals Resort in four years. Overall, the resort was beautifully landscaped and well maintained. We stayed in Building 7 which was at the far end of the resort. At first we didn’t like the long walk to and from the main pool or the restaurants,...
