After freshening up a bit my suite mates and I headed to shore in search of a taxi to Sandals Resort. Tricia and I secured day passes in conjunction with a site inspection as travel agents with an account with Sandals Resorts. We brought along Sandy and Cathy as our guests and as another set of eyes and ears in regard to the resort. Day passes are available for purchase, just contact your Castle Dreams Travel Planner for more information.Sandals are inclusive, adults only resorts that generally cater to couples. Having never visited one before, I really didn’t know what to expect. On paper, they sound and look fabulous and the Nassau location did not disappoint!
We relaxed more of the day, chatting with the staff and getting to know the lay of the land (which is basically pool bar, lounger in the sun on the pool deck, beach, lounger on the beach…). It was a nice, relaxing 4 hours or so.
My only complaints were that none of the pools were heated, which granted you don’t need 90% of the time in the Caribbean- but on the day we visited it would have been ideal. Personally, I am not a fan of the constant branding everywhere. I felt like I was constantly being reminded where I was. Just a personal preference.
We went to the buffet for lunch, which was pretty good. A nice variety of salads, a carving station and some chafing dishes too plus a TON of desserts. We all kept it pretty light with salads, jerk chicken, rice, etc. Nothing spectacular, but certainly not horrible either.
All in all, I would recommend this resort to couples. The customer service was outstanding, the resort was very clean, and we had a very relaxing day in the sun.
