    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.

    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.

    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

    Fun pool atmosphere

    The pool party atmosphere makes this place really fun. DJ Sy and Medium Shaq truly made our trip memorable, playing my favourite soca songs and dancing with me! There is a quiet pool as well for those that want to read a book. Don't worry! Some of the restaurants are excellent (Bombai) while others are not so good (Le Parisiene for dinner was awful but breakfast there is excellent) but overall the food was better than I thought I was going to find in an all-inclusive. The jerk pork was great from the Jamaican shack but the jerk chicken was dry and not very good. The check-in experience was bad as we waited hours for our room to be ready but we got a few treats from the manager to make up for that. My advice to management is to try to make this place more authentic and play more local music such as calypso or soca. Introduce tourists to your wonderful happy music. One of the other DJs played YMCA every night (no bueno!) and other songs that mostly older people enjoy (Abba). It's fine to have a retro night once a week but I'm 35 not 60 years old so I rather listen and party to the latest music.

    The property was gorgeous and very modern. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Butler service was a great addition to our experience. The only criticism I have are that the bar would run out of straws early on in the afternoon and beach towels could be difficult to find if you arrived at the pool or beach after 10am.

    Great staff, very well maintained, stunning beach, pools and grounds. Food at most restaurants was also extremely good especially at Butch’s Chophouse and La Parisienne. Kimonos and Chi were also pretty good. We would thoroughly recommend and will definitely be back next time we are in Barbados. Things that could be improved: 1. Check in process was slow notwithstanding booking Club Sandals and having used their online check in to speed things up. We waited about 2.5hrs to get our room - does help you can go and have a wander and grab lunch but after a long flight not ideal. 2. Clearing up room service trays left on the floor outside rooms. This was quite an unpleasant sight at times. Guests should be advised to leave trays in their rooms and not outside. 3. The nightly 9pm evening entertainment was lovely but only lasted an hour. Would be great if this was longer or something else was added to Lovers Lane.

    We will NEVER Visit this chain again!! WORST Vacation EVER!! Very disappointing time trying to celebrate our 3 year Anniversary, my Husbands 50th birthday with 2 other couples celebrating their Anniversary and one other birthday. The rugs in our room at check-in were dirty, there was food on the carpet and the table and we requested another room. The carpets in the new room were still dirty but at least no food left behind. The pools were not clean, the hallways were dirty with trash littered on the stairs. The food in the restaurants were mediocre at best, and my husband got sick right after eating eggs/salmon at the Le Perigne rooftop restaurant for breakfast and spent the rest of the day lying down, sweating profusely, and having to use the restrooms multiple times. Several of the staff were rude throughout our 5 day stay at the pool restaurants, front desk, transportation, complaining, no smiles, and not welcoming at all. We made reservations for six at the "5 star" Chophouse, of which they confirmed with us earlier in the day, however when we got there for dinner at 9:00 they told us our reservation was only for 4, and 2 people in our party could sit by themselves if we wanted to be seated at 9:00. It was advertised as one of the newest resorts but looked run down and not well taken care of at all. NOT what we expected for a hotel that sells itself as a LUXURY 5 star resort. We will never spend our money at a Sandals again- Waste of a vacation!
