Overall review of Sandals Emerald Bay

all-inclusive resort in the Bahamas

You can hardly go wrong with choosing a resort on the ‘out islands’ in the Bahamas, and Sandals Emerald Bay enhances the magic of vacationing in that part of the Caribbean with a luxurious and intimate experience that’s hard to beat.

In fact, of over 5,000 guest reviews, 82% (!) vote their stay at Sandals Emerald Bay as ‘Excellent’ or ‘Very good’. That’s not surprising considering it is the largest Sandals resort in the Bahamas, set in a beautiful beachfront location, with amazing swimming pools as far as the eye can see. The luxury resort also features a state-of-the-art golf course (18-hole, par 72) designed by Greg Norman, tennis courts and a spa.

Here are the three things guests love most about Sandals Emerald Bay:

Three things guests love about Sandals Emerald Bay

Based on real customer reviews.

1. Guests love the private beach and swimming pool

Guests can never get enough of the sugary white sands on this beach, brought to life by unbelievably clear, turquoise waters. If you can tear yourself away from the beach you’ll be able to enjoy an equally amazing time frolicking around the various pools at the resort, some of which include a swim up bar. Considering that Sandals was the resort that introduced the swim up bar concept so many years ago, you can be assured that this will be an unmatched experience.

2. Guests love the restaurants

Date night anyone? There are so many restaurants to choose from at Sandals Emerald Bay that you’ll almost have to be eating for your entire trip to enjoy them all. If that were in fact the case, it wouldn’t be half bad as Sandals Emerald Bay, much like the other Sandals resorts offers world-class themed dining options that enable guests to have pretty much anything they desire on any given day. Favorites at this resort include La Parisienne (French), Il Cielo (Italian), and the Drunken Duck, a British Pub which is also great for a night of drinks and meeting other couples.

Insider tip: The most popular restaurants at Sandals Emerald Bay require a reservation. Make sure to make some dinner reservations on arrival, especially during peak season! For dress-codes and opening times, see: restaurants at Sandals Emerald Bay.

3. Guests love the Red Lane Spa

A Sandals vacation is incomplete without indulging in the amenities available at the spa. If you’re yet to experience a couple’s massage, this is the place to do it. Or you can try something that’s just for you, like the Passionfruit Agave Massage (full body), Raindrop Dreams, a massage and essential oil experience that will help you realign physically, and energetically. You can also try the Slow Beauty Pedicure, Happy Hour Manicure, or a Mother-2-Be Massage. There are plenty of options at the Red Lane Spa, and at Sandals Emerald Bay, you’ll be able to treat yourself with no reservations.

For all these reasons and more, Sandals Emerald Bay is the perfect choice for an all-inclusive couple’s vacation. If you’re looking for a getaway that includes romance, a stunning resort, amazing golf course and an out-of-this-world beach, you don’t have to look any further than this.

Popular tours and excursion at Sandals Emerald Bay

Exuma Swimming Pigs Adventure.

Enjoy a fun filled, action packed excursion aboard a 35-foot custom designed PowerCat while you snorkel, beach comb and experience all the beauty of the Exumas in one tour. Your captain and first mate will entertain you with excellent knowledge and first-class service as you cruise in and out of over 20 magnificent, little known cays with several stops along the way.

Take incredible photos atop an island with 360-degree views of the Exuma cays; visit the endangered Bahamian rock Iguana at an island, which the original natives of the Bahamas once called home. Circle past the million dollar privately owned islands of celebrities, and speed across waters only inches deep as Stingrays race across the bottom.

No journey into the cays is complete without feeding the always hilarious Swimming Pigs, swim through a lively reef with magnificent colors while a nearby virgin sandbar awaits your exploration.

Insider tip: Sandals Emerald Bay repeat guests often recommend to spend at least one (half) day outside of the resort to explore the island. Make sure to book tours and excursions before arrival to ensure availability.

Moriah Sea Park Adventure.

Head over to the Exuma’s famous Moriah Harbor Cay National Park and become one with Mother Nature! Spanning across 10-miles of diverse land and sea, this park is home to reef fish, stingrays, turtles, dolphins and more! Bask in the Bahamian sun while keeping your eyes on the water, for you never know which ocean animal will swim by to say hello! Then, come face-to-face with these exotic sea-creatures as you cool off in the aquamarine sea and snorkel to your hearts content!

Exuma ATV Explorer.

Explore the Exumas ATV style! Your journey begins in a convoy as you follow an experienced guide to one of the oldest churches on the island - St. Margaret's Anglican Church, which was built on April 13, 1848. Next, hop back on your ATV and go on a journey back in time to the island's first prison where Pompey, one of the country's most infamous slaves was jailed. During your time spent at this stop people enjoy exploring and learning interesting facts while taking in the stunning view of the Exumian coastline.

Then it's back on your bikes as you head to the caves at Rolleville where you will get to explore and learn about its past use by pirates. Here, you will also get to enjoy a freshly cut coconut along with baked Bahamian treats. Lastly it's off to Cocoplum Beach where you will be mesmerized by one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean and its pristine waters, all while learning about the nearby beacon formerly used by pirates to sabotage passing ships!
