Property's 11 restaurants earn rave reviews for their tasty cuisine
Some say the resort's service is not up to par
This adults-only, all-inclusive Sandals resort boasts 11 restaurants and seven bars, plus 280 guest rooms and suites. Accommodations include balconies or patios, wall-mounted smart TVs, mahogany furniture and free Wi-Fi access. When you're not in your room, hit the beach. The resort offers complimentary water sports equipment, including snorkel gear, kayaks and Hobie Cat sailboats. Or, take a dip in one of three freshwater pools. The property also features tennis and beach volleyball courts, a fitness center, nightly entertainment and the brand's signature Red Lane Spa. Overall, recent visitors praised the resort's cuisine and location on 10 lush acres of Dover Beach along Barbados' southern coast. However, several past guests cited lackluster customer service.

Critic Reviews


Set on a private stretch of Dover Beach on the island's southwest coast, the lushly landscaped, couples-only Sandals Barbados is an upscale, all-inclusive resort. Some of the hotel's 280 rooms offer swim-out access into a river-style pool, or terraces with freestanding soaking tubs.



Romance is definitely in the air at this truly magnificent, adults-only, all-inclusive Sandals property. The resort faces Turtle Beach, one of the south coast's magnificent beaches, and surrounds an 8-acre garden and the longest "lagoon pool" in Barbados.
