    the service was horrible we had to wait hours on food everyday... the front desk never answered and it was hard to contact anyone via phone from your room...The servers wasn't friendly at all in the restaurants and it was the worst experience I had... This hotel is way overrated an I will not be going back here again...

    The staff at the concierge were rude and inattentive. Whenever we called the front desk, we often did not get through. It took us 2 hours past check in time to get our room. We heard from multiple people at the resort how unhappy they were with the service. On the other hand, we loved our room. We chose the room with the soaking tub and swim-up pool. Thank goodness for the room and the all inclusive benefits which made our experience at this Sandals resort enjoyable.

    Don't book this hotel!

    Arrived at reception where they had no record of our booking. Waited three hours before this was resolved then we had a multitude of problems for the 4 nights we stayed. No sunbeds available unless you get up at 6.30am to claim one. No towels available. Issues with getting into restaurants and not only the bookable ones. Extremely rude staff especially the barmaid Cathy at the courtyard bar, the hostess at Bombay and the hostess at Schooners. So much so that we actually couldn't believe it. Some staff are helpful but others shouldn't be working in the hospitality industry. Will never return and will tell everyone i speak to don't ever go to a Sandals resort. Glad we were only there for 4 nights. Some people we spoke to where there for 10 nights and were so upset

  • 2.0.Poor

    A 5 star resort with 2 star (at best) service. 1st time Sandals guests, decided to treat ourselves to 3 nights for birthday celebrations & 4th wedding anniversary. On arrival, no welcome drinks, no acknowledgment of our celebrations, (or throughout the rest of our stay for that matter). We were quarantined for our first night (although fully vaccinated & negative tested), we did not receive room service as offered, no food or drink (other than mini bar). So from 5pm through 7am the next morning, we didn’t eat and we hadn’t eaten since breakfast on morning of travel due to flight times etc. Reception staff extremely unhelpful, no accountability, no management and no resolution or effort to make up for the terrible treatment and service, even though we were assured (3 times) that the ‘incident’ would be investigated. Which it wasn’t. We witnessed other couples complaining at reception too, so not just us! Vegetarian food was served with shrimp, even though expressly ordered as vegetarian, chef thought it was ok to pick out the shrimp and reserve cold..as if we wouldn’t be able to tell. Tennis lesson booked with a pro, but cancelled the night before with no explanation. Basically, if you want to have a great time in Barbados, don’t stay here, stay somewhere cheaper & go support local restaurants, where the service is way better, people much nicer and appreciate your custom.

    NOT WORTH THE MONEY! The food was delicious, but that was about it. When we arrived the place was dirty right from the entrance. Beach covered in red tide/seawood and unusable. Service was mediocre at best. There was a handful of employees who were fantastic but the rest of the staff were rude and dismissive. Drinks were weak - had maybe a half of shot per mixed drink. When i asked if they could make it stronger the bartender rolled her eyes at me. Multiple restaurants were closed and the ONLY option for lunch on our side was pizza which took 25 minutes to order. On our first day they served us the wrong pizza. When we returned it, we then watched them serve it to another table. Given that they couldnt keep the towel racks full “because of COVID”, this seemed quite unsanitary. COVID excuse was used often, although couldnt understand how it applied to many things including availability of their usual late night menu. We have been to other resorts for less than half the price where the entertainment, cleanliness, and service is was 10x better. Would not go back.

    Great stay, terrible check in

    After a decidedly stressful check in we had a great time. Great food, nice room, great staff who helped show us how to sail and free scuba (if you’re qualified!) If you’ve already had your second COVID test make sure you email them your results in advance so you don’t end up in the old sandals resort doing quarantine!!

    Bardados Sandals review

    The service in all of the restaurants was ridiculously slow. Pool bars normally only had one bartender, but several guests just waiting in line to get drinks. There was nowhere to get a quick burger or hot dog without sitting down in a restaurant. It may be due to covid 19, but I was not impressed with my first visit to a Sandals resort.

    The hotel was fine just lacking management training for staff who in general were good. No napkins, cocktail sticks or drinks mats on any of the bars you spill a little of your drink you have to wipe/dry your hands on your pants or shirt never known this anywhere
