“What do you think about when I say Sandals resorts?” - Judy Norman asked me when I first starting working at Classy Destinations. “Honestly I think of a cheesy singles resort”. Wow was I misinformed! I had the opportunity in September to visit Sandals in Grenada on a work trip and my mind was definitely changed.
Sandals has been the world’s leading all-inclusive company for 23 years in a row and the world’s only 5-star luxury all included resort. Everything on a Sandals property is definitely top notch. There are 15 different Sandals properties on some of the Caribbean’s best beaches and each location is a little different than the other. All Sandals resorts are Adults only making it the perfect place to relax and get away. Since it is all inclusive and even gratuities are included, you get there and don’t have to get your wallet out once!
When I arrived at Sandals Grenada, I was met by my Butler who showed me to my suite. I couldn’t believe I had a swim up pool and bathtub on my balcony overlooking the gorgeous crystal blue water. My Butler had anticipated I would be hungry after my flight and had a plate of goodies waiting. He had me fill out my food and drink preference form so he could stock my refrigerator with all my favorites. Total pampering! He will even unpack your clothes upon arrival and will bring you drinks to you while you are lounging on the beach. Not every room comes with a butler but it is a splurge I highly recommend.
Everyone at the Sandals property is extremely friendly and lets you know that your wish is their command. This particular Sandals property had 10 dining options in total - each one unique and delicious! Since it is all inclusive, you can eat and drink to your heart’s content. Do you see 2 different appetizers you can’t choose between? Have them both - the sky’s the limit. Activities are included also. Want to go on a catamaran ride? Hop on and they will take you. The only things not included in the price are spa treatments, excursions off the property and renting a cabana.
Sandals is a great place for a honeymoon, wedding, renewal of vows, relaxing couples vacation or girlfriend getaway. You will see all ages there. On my way back on the plane I sat next to a couple who had been to 3 different Sandals and had booked their 4th trip for the next summer to a property in Jamaica. They said they love Sandals so much they want to visit them all. After my amazing experience at Sandals Grenada, I think I am going to follow their lead!
