With me and my husband being loyal Sandals Resort fans, We just returned from yet another wonderful vacation, this time at Sandals Resort in Barbados. We stayed in the Crystal Lagoon One Bedroom Butler Suite....and it was an instant "Wow", We love this place! The flowers, trees, greenery on this resort was just stunning.
We had three butlers and with each of them knowing how low key we were, they were very professional and understood when at times we purposely left the Butler Phone in the room. They did so many special things for us, bubble baths, champagne, candle light and Jazz music waiting for us after spending the day at the beach, they were really amazing.
Food at each of the restaurants was outstanding, we were looking forward to trying out the two new restaurants, Butch's Chophouse and the Indian Restaurant, Bombay, they sure didn't disappoint....actually, not a single one of Beaches or Sandals Resorts ever disappoints in the food, beverage and dessert department. Everything was perfect as always.
We were so happy to find that the Sargassum Seaweed problem that has plagued many parts of Caribbean (Including the beach at Sandals Barbados) had cleared and the ocean was beautiful. Keep in mind that ocean is a bit active.....and I love it that way. However, the seawall that was recently built has helped calm the active waves.
Being new to Barbados, we took a full day to tour the island and what a beautiful island it was...we made stops at Saint James Parish Church...one of the oldest in Barbados. We made a stop at the Morgan Lewis Sugar Mill, a quick stop for lunch at Sand Dunes Bar & Restaurant, then onto the beautiful Bathsheba Beach where we got to watch the surfers in the rough and beautiful ocean....this was my favorite stop and I could have spent hours there, but we had limited time as we were also hoping to see many green monkeys for their 2:00 feeding at the Barbados Wildlife Preserve . We got to see just one LOL. But seeing one is much better than seeing none.
Finally, we took a Sun, Sand and Snorkel Tour with Island Routes, so much fun seeing the homes and resorts along the coast and swimming with the sea turtles...I highly recommend it. Great food served and the cocktails were flowing. Their Catamaran Cruises have always been a favorite of mine.
There is construction going on next to the property and it was never a bother.....Just Sandals Resorts creating more jobs for those in need and constantly improving their resorts so that us loyal fans continue to return. I look forward to visiting again to see the finished product. Awesome Vacation!!!
