The "I'm having a HUGE wedding!!" stresses were over and it was time for the Honeymoon! We couldn't wait to take off and get away on our very first trip leaving the United States. We were both nervous, and excited! It was also the very first time flying for the both of us, so it was a big experience!
We did a lot of things there, swimming …
Hurricane Tomas is coming!! It's raining and windy. The rain hasn't picked up too much but it's getting ready to, I can hear it out my window as I lay in bed and realize that I've slept 5 hours in the last 3 days.
I knew Tomas was coming, I was tracking the NHC (National Hurricane Center) online before I left and they predicted it would …

Great stay. Hubs and I went just to getaway. The food was fine and everything was to expectations for the price we paid. With two pools guests had a choice to partake in the "party" pool with various activities and fun music or the "quiet" pool where the majority of guests sat poolside, read, and enjoyed the beautiful beach views. Service at the restaurants and indoor bars was great and the staff was friendly. The only negative were the bartenders at the swim up bar weren't as friendly or outgoing as expected. They seemed more interested in being done with the day. Overall, the room was nice, and the bar was always kept fully stocked. I would go back.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort & Offshore Island Nassau
Bad rooms, food, drinks and service! Not to mention the all inclusive water sports... BROKEN DOWN or not enough equipment available. We went for our honeymoon and were extremely dissapointed. Can't re-do a honeymoon! Bad food and room were the most dissapointing items. Lived off of dry bagels and rice crispy ceral. Absolutely no night life action. Very very young just married guests. It reminded us of a high school senior trip. If you like good food, drink, service and rooms... DON'T GO HERE!
GO--if youre between the ages of 21 and 35, planning a romantic honeymoon, want a very, very, very quite place to have a romantic vacation, like to swim in a pool, and swimming at a pretty beach with clear water is not a priority. The rooms were immaculate and very nicely furnished (we stayed in the Manor Wing). The food was excellent, and the service throughout the property was superb. Its a great honeymoon destination with romantic gardens and grounds.
I just returned from Sandals Royal Bahamian and was extremely happy with the whole trip. I read many of the reviews and was worried at first, but when we got there, the staff was very nice. Everyone goes out of their way to help....you just have to talk and be friendly with them and they open up to you immediately. Its really up to you...you will be treated in the same manner you present yourself to them. For those who complained about the rooms, well just remember if you are a picky hotel room type then pay the bigger bucks for the royal bahamian beach front and you will be treated in royality. If you do not plan on being in your room but to sleep then just get a one bedroom suite and spend your time on the property.
We just spent 3 nights/4 days at Sandals Royal Bahamian, and I have to say that it was amazing. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Friendly, courteous, helpful. The food was abundant and delicious. Everything was remarkably clean and well-kept. The sugar sand beach was also immaculate. The water crystal clear and warm. Blue beyond belief, tourquoise, really...My only complaint was that the air conditioning in the room was a bit intense. It got COLD, so we opened the sliding glass door at night, and that turned off the A/C. The room stayed comfortable until almost lunch time, when we closed the door again to Chill out the room.
I would like to begin by saying that we were very leery about going to SRB based on some of the reviews that we had read, but we had our hearts set on going and went anyway. We were in absolute awe of every aspect of the resort. We are a mid-30’s couple married for 13 years and were desperately in need of a relaxing vacation.
After reading a few "horror story" reviews on other websites on this resort I was a little hesitant to book. Overall, the average review was "Excellent" though, so I put my faith in the good Lord and booked my honeymoon for 7 days in their best suite in early March of 2002.
Great Rooms, Good Service!!
I loved staying at Sandals Resort and Spa during my winter break this past year!! It was great! We took long walks at the beach,went swimming in the pool, and then got pampered at the spa! It was wonderful!! My husband and I will definately be returning next year!! Thank you for a great experiance!!
My Husband and I travelled to Sandals Royal Bahamian in January 2002 for a well earned vacation. Once again we have to agree that the Sandals Resorts have out done themselves. They picked an ideal location with a semi-private island only a two minute boat ride away that contains a small cove for leisurely swimming or snorkeling.
