Great week of relaxation!!!

Overall the resort is amazing. The grounds are wonderfully maintained and gorgeous. Most of the staff were very friendly, and greeted you in passing. We did have some less than friendly staff members behind the bars and in the bowling alley at the Royal Barbados. The pool bar was very slow with only 1 bartender, but Sean provided great service and drinks. I don't understand why they only have 1 bartender at the busiest bar, and 2 on the other side (not in water). There should be 2 at the swim up and 1 on the other side. So many times, there would be 10 people waiting for drinks in the pool and no one on the other side, yet the 2 bartenders there would not help. Shandy was the bartender we met at the Oyster bar, and was so friendly and helpful. I did especially like how both resorts are connected though so that doubles your experience and choices of activities. We used the spa, which was great, and most of the restaurants, Our favorite was Le Parisian (French) . It was on the roof top, had great views and even better food. Butch's Steak and Seafood was also great as well as Portofino. Our room was impeccably cleaned each day (unless we forgot and left the red light on). The entire facility was very clean. There were always staff cleaning every inch including raking the sand. The water was pretty choppy and the red flag was out every day, so water sports were non existent. Overall a great experience and I would recommend. Try the sing along at the piano bar for a little evening entertainment.

I am giving this a 3 rating because the beaches and weather were perfect. I would give it a 1 if I based it solely on Sandals performance. It all started at the airport. Once my wife and I got through customs we were pointed in the direction of the Sandals transportation area. There was no organization or real communication, but after about 20-30 minutes they got us in a cab and sent us to sandals. Once we got to Sandals they moved us into a room, but were clearly under-staffed so took forever to get a room. We were supposed to meet friends at the pool, but luggage took about 30-45 minutes to arrive. Our room and view were very nice, but the shower had dirty acne pads and junk on the floor, yuck. We also had only two towels in the room (No wash clothes or face towels) took until the following day to get any. My wife wanted a drink after a long trip so I went to get ice. The ice maker on my floor(4th) did not work. I asked someone about it he said try the next floor down., did not work either. I hoofed it down one more floor and it didn't work either. I ran into a nice housekeeping lady and she said she would go get me some ice. This all happened day 1 hour 1. Not a good start. After that things got better, but I felt the service and employee engagement/attentiveness was very average. They were helpful when asked, but not before. For the amount of money I paid and the length of time it took to get there, I can safely say I will not go back.
