What is the Best Sandals Resort?

“What is the best Sandals resort?”

“Which Sandals resort is your favorite?”


I get asked some version of these questions A LOT as a professional travel advisor so I thought it’d be helpful for me to share my answer. Unfortunately, though, it’s not as straight forward as just ranking them in order from best to worst and telling you the top Sandals resort.

There are 17 Sandals resorts on seven islands in the Caribbean:

  • Antigua: 1 resort

  • Bahamas: 2 resorts

  • Barbados: 2 resorts

  • Curacao: 1 resort

  • Grenada: 1 resort

  • Jamaica: 7 resorts

  • St. Lucia: 3 resorts


While all of these Sandals resorts have certain things in common like being all-inclusive resorts for couples only and being located on some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, they’re far from cookie cutter resorts.

Each one has something different to offer and what might be the best for me (or your cousin Susie) might not be the best for you.

PRO TIP: Sandals has a couple of really helpful tools you can use to search for resorts with specific features and/or do a side-by-side comparison of resorts:

Besides the characteristics I've listed above, some other factors you’ll want to consider when choosing a Sandals resort are things like: price, distance from airport, specific dining experiences, excursion options available on the island, etc.

If you want to make sure you spend your romantic getaway at the right Sandals resort, I recommend working with a Certified Sandals Specialist, like me, who knows the resorts inside and out.

My clients never have to roll the dice on picking a resort they may not end up liking because it doesn't fit their travel style. When you hire me as your travel advisor, you can feel confident knowing that you'll get a trip that'd designed just for YOU!
