Finally, the vacation date arrived for our fourth trip to wonderful Barbados. The new resort was everything that I hoped it would be and more!
We traveled with 8 other couples, one couple celebrated their 25th Anniversary on resort, and another celebrated their 7th anniversary. Two others celebrated birthdays, including my husband. Fantastic time had by all.
We stayed in the Seaside Swim Up Butler Suite, the room was so cozy and comfortable, though there is so much to do on resort, little time was spent there. Adoring those beautiful, blue, and active Maxwell Beach ocean waves, we spent many hours per day in the ocean, our very favorite place to be. They have a nice variety of swimming pools with some being more active than others, but we prefer the quiet pools, while others enjoy the DJ's and entertainment at the active pools. It's nice that Sandals always has something for everyone to enjoy, thus the reason why I always sell Sandals and Beaches Resort first.
Dining is always a difficult decision as there are so many options. The new Chi Asian Fusion was awesome, Butch's Chop House, Neptunes, The Jerk Shack (oh the Sausage and festival is so good) Soy is always on the list for some apps and sushi before dining out. Bombay is another favorite.
Nightlife is pretty awesome, we shared time at all, but really enjoyed the new Lovers Lane Bowling Alley/Craft Beer Bar, The Rooftop bar was quite relaxing in the evening and the views (day and night) from up there are just beautiful. Of course drinks at the Merry Monkey, and early morning Mimosas at American Grill always work.
The staff is so friendly and helpful, it is they who make or break a resort, and they do it right. I look so forward to returning next year....or sooner. :)
Stay tuned for Sandals Grenada, our soon to be next vacation.
