From the moment we arrived in Nassau we were treated with a warm welcome. All staff at the Royal Bahamian were very helpful with getting us into our room, showing us where things were located, and got us relaxing into vacation mode right away. Check in was a breeze, our room was great and the food fabulous. We had such a great time with Richando and Savannah at Kimonos. Richando was an excellent chef and showed his talent for cooking while singing to us in his beautiful voice! The food was soooo good. Savanah made sure we had everything we needed and was on hand to refill our drinks often. Breakfast at Spices was wonderful. All the wait staff were very attentive and so nice. We had such a nice time that we're returning to Sandals next year. Don't miss out on a trip to paradise!
Food beach and design
The boats they have on the beach for free. I loved the food. The parties they had in the pool.
The internet connection was horrible. The waiters were sometimes not so friendly
Location is stunning, spacious room, dining options are amazing, water color the best , staff friendly , rolls pick up was amazing
Bartenders by the pool could be a little friendly
The hotel is in a great location, 10/15 min away from the airport, 15 min away from Downtown Nassau and, if it interests you, 20 min away from the Aqua Venture (Atlantis Hotel). The beach is amazing and from time to time, there are lots of fish swimming next to you. We ended up not spending much time on the private island but when we went there it seemed great, despite the mosquitos. The food was good and there is plenty of restaurants to choose from, all with great quality food.
What we did not enjoy was the service. The staff is nice but extremely inefficient. They are super slow and they kept asking what we had ordered through our meals, which was really annoying. The buffet had good food but not a great variety. We had a concierge service but we ended up not using. However, this service was very frustrating to most guests because the butler and concierges booked all the good seats in the beach by 8AM which meant that the hotel guests that actually wanted to go the the beach early in the morning did not have any good spaces left. One morning, we were able to reserved two chairs by 8AM before breakfast and when we came back to the beach (by 8:30AM) a butler, named Sean, had took our stuff into another chain. We were furious and he had the nerve to lie to us. This beach situation was really annoying because then the reserved chairs by the butlers and concierges would only start being used at noon or they would not even show up.
