We were put in quarintine for the first 3 days.Only because my husband decided not to have his body injected with a test cure for covid. We were not put in the room that we paid for. We were to have ocean/ pool view. We had a view of a hut. That's it. We had to order all food in and on most part it showed up very cold or very dried up. One day it was 9 hours before food even showed up. It was like we were being punshied for spending thousands of our hard earned money. What hurt most was have tracking devices put on us. We felt like criminals. We finally got moved to a ocean/ pool view on the night before we had to leave only because our air conditioner burn up in our room. They were going to charge us for that until I said I did'nt break the air conditioner. All in all we were very unsatified with the whole ordeal. The couples we brought with us weren't to happy about this either. This was our second trip to this resort. We bragged it up pretty good before we got there.

Don’t hesitate - just book!
We had a fantastic stay at Sandals Royal Barbados - can’t understand a lot of the negative reviews. I was a little hesitant to book after reading Hotels.com reviews but didn’t need to worry! We got all of the restaurant reservations we wanted throughout the week as we were not overly fussy about what time we ate. Wait times for food on the whole were perfectly acceptable. Longest we waited was 45 mins between starter & main but we were on a relaxing all inclusive holiday so why rush the meal!? We used the bowling alley at least 3 times which was great fun. Only slight grumble would be the sun bed situation as you need to be down early to get a decent position but what resort doesn’t have this challenge right? We always got a bed & moved to better beds if people left early afternoon. Would definitely recommend for an all inclusive couples resort

Incredible, beautiful, amazing
First things first. Yes, there were delays, the hotel was running low staff and lots of new staff following Covid closures. I absolutely would not judge the place based on that. THEREFORE! Beautiful site, lovely rooms, staff were so amazingly friendly really such incredible people. Choice of restaurants was awesome. The pools lovely and clean. Lack of pool towels due to moron guests taking them to their rooms to hog sun loungers from 6a.m then not using them - not the fault of the staff. We took the hotel excursion to go snorkeling, absolute class. Swam with turtles, saw shipwrecks, very informative all in great boat crew. Over all, really, really great place - if the world wasn't so big I'd go back in a heartbeat. 10/10 from me.

Lovely property
Great stay. Nice food. Nice property and beach. Service could be much better, check in was messy and slow. Dining reservations were awkward to place, system could improved greatly.

Horrible service with great amenities
Service was truly the worst I've had. Room service took over an hour (they said it should take 30-40 min) and didn't show up a couple times. They "forgot" to clean our room for 3 days straight, despite calling them everyday 2x. But the resort itself is very nice, with a lot of pools, restaurants, and different activities.

They are trying to double charge us for activities that we had prepaid before and during our trip and charged us a second time for photos. Over $400 of charges they have double dipped on. Do not prepay for the candlelight dinner! They tried to charge us again for it and it took us over an hour in the front desk to fix it (we almost missed our plane). They charged us $72 for 3 photos that we had already paid $54 for (they said they accidentally charged more and said they would fix it then charged me the $54, and now both are being charged on my card). The resort is beautiful and most of the food and staff are kind. The experience there was great, but the last day there and the fraudulent charges after left a bad taste and discouraged us from returning. We tried to communicate with staff and were lied to. I don’t see us trying other sandals resorts or recommending it to others.

Absolutely loved this resort. This was our first Sandals experience, and couldn't have been more blown away. When I was searching for resorts in the Carribean, I was looking primarily for good food at a couples-only, so I went with this based on reviews. And I picked right because this was the best food I've ever had at an all-inclusive. Sushi restaurant sashimi after a day at the beach was the perfect pregame for dinner at an excellent steakhouse. All of the staff have been friendly and genuinely caring about our stay at the resort. I've never been anywhere in my life where I was surrounded by so many people who wanted me to be having the best day possible every day. We didnt start taking notes until the last two days, but a few honorable staff mentions: - Marc and Dwayne the photographers. Went above and beyond to get great shots. One of them actually went to the rooftop restaurant nearby just to get an aerial shot of us playing chess. - Darren - Manager of a few restaurants. He was our waiter the first night and was very personable, I felt that he was able to shed the formality in his conversation which made him seem very relaxed - Camiliah - waitress at Schooners- helped make our last meal special before leaving. -The Manager at the Indian restaurant- we didn't get his name but he clearly cared alot about our dining experience and came to check on us a few times. We normally arent huge fans of Indian food but gave it a try and this was outstanding! Felt very at home
