Room: The room at The Sandals Resort we were given for our stay was called “The Lovers Lagoon”. Our room was on the 3rd/top floor and had a great view of the Caribbean. I don’t want to spend too much time on the room, because honestly, we spent the majority of the time at the pool and at the restaurants, haha. The room had a fridge stocked with every type of drink imaginable, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Unlike other all-inclusive resorts, they did not have snacks in the room, but obviously you could order anything to the room, so definitely wasn’t a big deal.
Food: Typical for a Sandals resort, the place was flooded with different types of restaurants. We stayed for 3 nights and couldn’t get to them all. I wish I could give you suggestions for breakfast, but we just ordered room service every morning, lol. Although, there was a crepe place right behind the main pool that everyone was raving about, so I would definitely suggest that.
For lunch, there were a ton of options by the pool. There was a hot dog stand, pizza parlor, burger and sandwich shop, multiple sit down options as well for a full-service lunch. Since we spent 99% of our time by the pool, our lunches consisted of hot dogs, pizza and chicken sandwiches. Yes, I may have gained a few pounds, but don’t judge me!
For dinner, the first night we ate a nice restaurant on the sand by the beach. Provided multiple chicken, beef and fish options (+ Veggie as well) and even had a specific drink menu for this restaurant. The second night, we double dinner’d it up! First, we went to the Japanese restaurant. The sushi here was amazing! They had a few fried sushi options, which I couldn’t stop eating, lol. We may have filled up too much before our second dinner, but it was definitely worth it. Our second dinner was hibachi, which after a few sake’s was way more entertaining than maybe it should’ve been, lol. Either way, it was delicious. Our last night, we had a dinner at their fanciest restaurant. Located on a pier overlooking the Caribbean, it was a beautiful setting. A 4-course dinner with the tastiest food at the resort! For Partying – go to the Pub, that’s where the party’s at, lol.
Activities: there were a ton of activities on site. Non-motorized water activities (kayaking, etc.,) and they do have excursions available for an extra cost. Note: The staff at the resort do have a lot of games and activities happening around the pool and by the beach at night. It’s really, really hard to avoid fun at this resort.
Beach: Just look at the photos, the water was so clear, the sand was so nice, and the scenery was amazing. Definitely one for the books.
Transportation: From the airport to the resort is roughly a 1.5-2 hour drive. I did highly appreciate the fact that Sandals had their own lounge at the airport, where you can snack and drink before your ride. Sandals takes care of the transportation, but beware, these roads are windy and the drivers drive fast! I typically get nauseated fairly easy, so this was a tough ride for me. It’s much worse on the way to the airport than on the way to the resort, probably because you realize the vacation is over, lol. We did meet a couple that took a helicopter from the airport to the resort, and that’s just an 8 minute ride. If that meets your budget, it may be a consideration if you’re trying to avoid the drive.
