Now a recognized name in the Caribbean, Sandals has garnered a growing fan base thanks to its customized destination wedding services and special promotions, which include extras like catamaran cruises and spa credits. Additional information about Sandals' highly regarded properties is provided below.

    Like other Sandals outposts, this 17-acre Pink Gin Beach property in Grenada is an adults-only haven for vacationing couples. Expect the brand's signature all-inclusive luxury and variety of amenities, such as five pools, a spa and 10 restaurants, including a Sandals first – a steakhouse. Take your pick between four villages (Pink Gin, South Seas, Lovers's Hideaway and Italian Village) and different accommodation classes (Love Nest, Luxury Level, Club Level and Butler Level). Standard Luxury Level rooms can be found in the South Seas area and feature mahogany furnishings, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and, in select rooms, vaulted ceilings. Meanwhile, Club Level accommodations also come with 24-hour concierge services. Splurge on Butler Level lodgings and enjoy the amenities of a Club room, plus a large balcony with a soaking tub or private plunge pool, among other comforts. When you're not relaxing in your room, sample any one of the resort's complimentary activities (think: kayaking, scuba diving, tennis and themed parties) or visit the beach club, which features an infinity pool, fire pits and views of the Caribbean Sea. Travelers love the plethora of things to do and the friendly, helpful staff, although some say beverage service at the restaurants and bars is hit or miss.

    A member of the family-friendly, all-inclusive fleet of Beaches Resorts that are part of the Sandals Resorts family, Beaches Turks & Caicos offers plenty of fun for kids and parents. In fact, guests warn against coming here without kids, as there are so many child-friendly activities that some childless guests found the amount of young people around a bit annoying. This Turks and Caicos Islands resort's 45,000-square-foot Pirates Island Waterpark will keep everyone occupied with some fun in the sun, while the Xbox Play Lounge and youth-friendly dance club will entertain even the grumpiest teenagers. After a massage at the Red Lane Spa, regroup for a meal at one of Beaches' 21 restaurants, which serve up everything from pizzas to sushi to burgers. (Rest assured, there's also the adults-only Sapodilla's for a romantic dinner for two.) Come back home to Beaches Turks & Caicos' guest rooms and suites, which feature balconies or patios, white or wooden beds, free Wi-Fi access, stocked minifridges and smart TVs. True to the resort's name, all accommodations sit within walking distance of Grace Bay's alabaster beach, though standard rooms overlook the resort's pools and gardens.

    Sandals Royal Plantation, part of Sandals' Jamaican fleet of adults-only, all-inclusive resorts, emphasizes luxury over size. Each of its 74 ocean view suites on the Ocho Rios Riviera comes with personalized butler service to cater to your every need, as well as a marble bathroom, a king-sized bed draped in Italian linens and a private balcony or patio. The luxurious (albeit dated) digs and top-notch amenities at Royal Plantation make for a special Sandals resort, but guests say it's the friendly service from the resort staff that keeps them coming back again and again. Spend your days golfing, scuba diving or playing tennis; then, retreat to the Red Lane Spa, a Sandals staple. (Keep in mind, spa services cost extra.) After a full day, dine in the lap of luxury at one of Royal Plantation's five restaurants. For an extra swanky treat, head to C Bar, the only Champagne and caviar bar in Jamaica.

    Sandals Royal Caribbean gives guests a taste of the Far East about 5 miles northeast of downtown Montego Bay, Jamaica. Hop aboard the Wayang Doll – a dragon-shaped boat – and visit Sandals' private island, where you can dine on curry at Royal Thai, get a bamboo polish at the Red Lane Spa, lounge by a pool or dance the night away in the flickering light of tiki torches. Back on the mainland, you can spend your time in one of six additional pools, on the beach or off-roading through the jungle in a four-wheel drive vehicle. If you somehow find that there isn't enough to do at this adults-only, all-inclusive resort, you can take advantage of the "Stay at 1, Play at 3 Program" for access to amenities at both Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Inn. And every night, you can rest your head in an air-conditioned guest room or suite back at Sandals Royal Caribbean, snug in a four-poster bed amid mahogany furnishings. However, some guests say their accommodations let in a lot of noise from airplanes landing at and departing from Sangster International Airport, which is just a few miles away. For more space and perks like private infinity pools, glass floors and outdoor showers, consider upgrading to one of the over-the-water private island villas.

    With sweeping views of Fort Rodney and volcanic mountains rising from turquoise waters, the all-inclusive, adults-only Sandals Grande St. Lucian is flanked on both sides by the Atlantic Ocean and Rodney Bay. Because of its unique position on St. Lucia, transport from the airport to the resort can be a bit bumpy. Despite its hard-to-reach location, this Sandals outpost offers more of a theme park village atmosphere than a secluded island setting, with an endless supply of restaurants, recreation options and amenities. And with the free inter-Sandals shuttle service, there are an additional 15 restaurants and numerous beach activities available if you tire of the property's five pools, scuba diving lessons and tennis facilities. Guest rooms and suites feature king-sized beds, stocked minifridges and shared or private balconies or patios. With Sandals Grande St. Lucian's bevy of activities, eateries and prime location just south of Pigeon Island National Landmark, guests say the resort provides a packed itinerary and just the right amount of relaxation. However, some caution that the room rates are expensive and that some accommodation views are subpar.

    Sandals Emerald Bay offers a luxurious, secluded setting on Great Exuma Island in the Bahamas. Although its location may be somewhat remote, this adults-only property offers plenty of activities to keep you entertained. In addition to featuring a Greg Norman-designed, 18-hole golf course, the resort boasts three pools, a 150-slip marina, two whirlpools and a Red Lane Spa. Plus, visitors can enjoy unlimited land and water sports, such as scuba diving, kayaking, paddle boarding, beach volleyball and tennis. After a long day in the sun, bed down in one of Sandals' spacious ocean view rooms or suites, which are decorated with British colonial-style furnishings and come equipped with furnished balconies or patios, minibars, bathtubs and free Wi-Fi access. The property also houses 11 restaurants and six bars. Past guests appreciated the unlimited meals and drinks included in their room rates, though some said the dishes served on-site were of average quality.

    Beaches Negril is located less than 4 miles northeast of downtown Negril, Jamaica, along the widest stretch of Seven Mile Beach. Affiliated with the Sandals Resorts brand, this Beaches property boasts an array of all-inclusive amenities for travelers of all ages, including tennis courts, a water park, a supervised kids camp and "Sesame Street" character meet and greets, plus Xbox lounge and a teens club. What's more, visitors can borrow water sports equipment like scuba diving gear, kayaks, paddleboards and Hobie Cat sailboats. When it's time to dine, travelers can grab a bite to eat in one of 10 restaurants and snack venues. All room rates cover meals and drinks at every on-site eatery. Past diners raved about the resort's dining establishments, especially the cuisine served at the beachside seafood restaurant, Stew Fish, and the Italian-inspired Venetian. Reviews were a bit more mixed for the resort's Caribbean-inspired accommodations: Some described the rooms as well-appointed and clean, while others said the interiors were outdated and featured thin walls that let in a lot of noise. Luxury Level rooms, the resort's standard accommodations, include private balconies or patios, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and stocked minibars, while upgraded rooms and suites offer more space and concierge or butler services.

    Flanked by the crystalline waters of Dickenson Bay in northwest Antigua, this adults-only, all-inclusive Sandals resort caters to couples looking for a romantic retreat. Guests can choose between a cottage in the Caribbean Beachfront Village or a suite at the Mediterranean Oceanview Village. Whichever accommodation type travelers choose, they'll find mahogany, four-poster king-sized beds, plush bathrobes, complimentary Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs. The resort features an impressive seven bars and 11 restaurants, serving everything from pizza to Tex-Mex to sushi. For R&R-seekers, Sandals Grande Antigua's Red Lane Spa offers treatments like massages and body scrubs. Meanwhile, active duos have their pick of various land and water sports, including paddleboarding, snorkeling and beach volleyball. Though most recent guests praised the friendliness of the staff, some were disappointed with their room service and restaurant meals.

    Sandals Royal Bahamian has a long-standing regal heritage. Before it was part of the Sandals family, this retreat was known as the Balmoral Club – a famed 1940s escape for the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Upholding the Balmoral's legacy, Sandals Royal Bahamian's main entrance and lobby display frescoed ceilings and opulent chandeliers, while rooms include old-world colonial accents. Sandals Royal Bahamian also features a Red Lane Spa, 10 restaurants, seven pools and complimentary gear for kayaking, sailing and scuba diving (lessons are covered by the all-inclusive room rates). And if you crave a change in scenery, hop on a free boat and within minutes you'll be on Sandals' private offshore island with access to two secluded beaches, a lagoon-style pool and a seafood eatery. Though guests say the private beach is a fun getaway, many lament the inconsistent service and the indirect ocean views from the accommodations.

    Like its sister resorts scattered throughout the Caribbean, Sandals Negril knows how to have a good time. From windsurfing along Negril, Jamaica's Seven Mile Beach to nightly entertainment, there's a whole lot going on at this adults-only, all-inclusive resort. Sandals Negril doesn't skimp on luxury, either: Each room features mahogany furnishings, coffee makers, flat-screen TVs and Red Lane Spa toiletries. Plus, Club Level and Butler Level accommodations offer concierge or butler services. Guests can also get pampered at the Red Lane Spa. Afterward, savor Asian fare at Kimonos (a traveler favorite), or sit for a meal at one of Sandals Negril's six other dining establishments. At night, visitors can sing along to classics at the piano bar or sample beverages at the swim-up pool bar. Vacationers recommend claiming your spot at the swim-up bar early since the small watering hole has limited seating.

    Sandals Montego Bay (an adults-only, all-inclusive resort) sprawls across 26 acres and touts 10 restaurants and six swimming pools. Plus, it offers the amenities of three Sandals resorts in one. Sandals Montego Bay's "Stay at 1, Play at 3 Program" package provides free round-trip transfers between Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Inn, meaning guests have access to a dizzying array of restaurants, bars and swimming pools. Back at Sandals Montego Bay, accommodations feature mahogany furnishings, four-poster beds and HD smart TVs, all near the largest private beach in Jamaica. But for the ultimate indulgence, recent guests suggest upgrading to a room with butler service. For those looking to splurge even more, opt for a relaxing massage at the on-site Red Lane Spa before taking a wild Reggae Cruise on a catamaran. The property also offers all kinds of free activities, such as scuba diving, tennis, beach volleyball and themed parties. Overall, past visitors enjoyed their stays here, though some cautioned that the pool decks lack adequate seating.

    Allowing travelers to masquerade as temporary millionaires during their St. Lucia getaway, the adults-only Sandals Regency La Toc offers a wealth of glamorous (and romantic) amenities. Book a Butler Level suite and let a personal valet draw a rose-petal bath, deliver refreshing cocktails chaise-side and unpack your holiday wardrobe. If you still crave luxury but don't require a personal aid, retreat to one of this Sandals outpost's other guest rooms, which include king-sized beds, Red Lane Spa amenities, balconies or patios, flat-screen TVs and stocked minifridges. When it's time to venture beyond your digs, test the fairways of the nine-hole golf course or sign up for a rejuvenating couples massage at the Red Lane Spa. This 220-acre resort also boasts snorkeling, kayaking and scuba diving at its beautiful (albeit small) beach, not to mention three pools. Should you need a change of scenery, head to Sandals Grande St. Lucian or Sandals Halcyon Beach for free access to their beaches, amenities and restaurants. To cap off your day, recent guests recommend making reservations at La Toc restaurant for elegant French fare. You'll also have your pick of eight other on-site eateries. The property's all-inclusive room rates cover all meals and drinks at all nine dining venues, plus in-room Wi-Fi access, green fees and land and water sports equipment rentals.

    Set amid a 500-acre wilderness preserve and along a 2-mile-stretch of sand, the all-inclusive Sandals South Coast provides guests with Sandals' signature activities, plus the natural beauty of Jamaica's southern coast. All accommodations feature patios or balconies that overlook a white sand beach and contain four-poster beds, minifridges and HD smart TVs. Some travelers caution that most guest rooms and suites appear worn, so if you're looking for updated digs, consider booking one of the overwater bungalows, which were added in 2017, or a room in the renovated Italian Village building. You may dine on traditional Jamaican dishes at Schooner's or Eleanors, enjoy an Italian-inspired meal at guest-favorite Giuseppe's or sit for a meal at seven other restaurants. The room rates covers all nine dining venues. But make sure you wait an hour after eating before jumping into one of three pools, one of which is the largest zero-entry pool in Jamaica. Or, lounge on the sprawling beach (which visitors say is clean and never feels crowded, even when the resort is at capacity). Whether you're relaxing by the pool or along the sandy shore, your stay will be free of little ones – all Sandals resorts have an adults-only policy, so leave the kids at home.

Overall, vacationers praise the property's friendly staff and highly recommend splurging for a room with butler service. However, many lamented the on-site dining venues. Although travelers have access to 16 eateries (plus five additional restaurants at nearby Sandals Royal Plantation), many said the cuisine served at most of the dining outposts was not up to par. Others caution that several property amenities are unavailable while the resort undergoes renovations.
