Sandals Closes Their Resort but Will NOT Offer a Full Refund

Red Bank, New Jersey, United States

My wife and I were scheduled to go to Sandals on April 15, 2020 for our 10 year anniversary. This was going to be our third trip to a Sandals resort and our second to the Royal Bahamian. Due to the global Pandemic SANDALS CHOSE TO CLOSE THEIR RESORT. Let me repeat that so I am clear, SANDALS CHOSE TO CLOSE THEIR RESORT. I used a travel agent however I paid for the resort, flights, and insurance DIRECTLY through SANDALS (UNIQUE VAC/REP OF SANDAL). The agent I dealt with told me that Sandals would not refund my purchase but could offer me half of the resort fees back in a refund and the other half in a credit that I would have to use within a year of the initially scheduled vacation. They also told me that UNITED would give me a credit that I would have to use before the end of 2020. They told my agent this is all outlined in the insurance I purchased through SANDALS. They also told my agent to cancel the trip and this is the best they could offer. My agent spoke with Sandals twice and they would not move from their position. I was advised to cancel as to not lose the full amount of my trip. Again, SANDALS CANCELED my vacation, not me and now my money is being held hostage. When I reached out to Sandals to speak with someone they refused and told me to speak with my Agent. This is HORRIBLE customer service and a true disservice to someone who was looking to visit you three times in a decade. Anyone else reading this reach out to your credit card company. I have contacted mine, explained the situation, how we were FORCED into canceling to guarantee that we recoup some of our money back, which they fully understand and appeared to agree with me. They will be contesting these charges on my behalf. Again, this is not how you handle customer who spend thousands of dollars to visit your resort.

Beautiful but came at the worst time

The resort and view was amazing, but when we arrived on Friday, they told us that we had to fly back home by Sunday due to the coronavirus. We tried to enjoy as much of the amenities as we could in a short amount of time but there were some things that was limited. We had made a reservation on saturday at Kimonos for dinner and when we arrived, there was no one there. I wished there was some kind of communication about it being closed or what was still opened. There wasn't much people staying at the resort. The service was still phenomenal but we felt like they could have handled our situation better. Per their policy, they offered us a voucher for the 2 days that we were supposed to stay. But with our situation, we were not able to utilize the voucher within the year. We were sent to multiple staffs and they all told us the same thing; to call the sandals corporation. We did expect to talk to the GM, but that never happened. Still awaiting to speak to a representative at the corporate location....... But, a private transfer to the airport in a Rolls Royce was nice though.....
