Key Takeaways

Sandals Emerald Bay vs. Royal Bahamian

– These two Sandals resorts in the Bahamas are fabulous, but also very different.  If you are looking for night life, things to do on the island, Casinos, and shopping and loads of activities, I would book Sandals Royal Bahamian.  If you want to escape, get away from it all, and just relax and have all the 5 star gourmet dining options Sandals offers, then Emerald Bay on Exuma is your prefect quiet holiday escape.


Royal Bahamian Private Island

– In addition to the party like atmosphere at the main Sandals resort, an included boat ride to the island gives you another place to enjoy and escape to.  There is a large pool, swim up bar, food and drink options, beach and forest area with places to lounge and enjoy the sun and surf.
