Part 2: Review of the Sandals Resort in Grenada
So now let’s talk about our stay at the Sandals Resort in Grenada.
Here’s a little video showing a room tour and some videos I took while we were there.
I’ve had so many questions about the resort and several of you have messaged me that you are now planning a trip there or booked your honeymoon, anniversary trip, vacation, etc after seeing it! That makes me so incredibly happy because this resort is truly one to put on your bucket list!
We have been to four other Sandals Resorts and although all of them have been nothing short of amazing, this one is hands down, the best, in our opinion! Here are the most frequently asked questions about our trip!
What Room Did you Stay In?
We stayed in the Oceanview Skypool Butler Suite. Our Room Number was 3402.
I can not say enough about this incredible room. As seen in the video, it’s like a mini apartment and the balcony is unbelievable! We weren’t sure if we were going to use the infinity pool as much but we definitely did and we are so happy we ungraded to that room. After a day at the beach, we would head back to the room and dip in for an hour or so before we went to dinner that evening and even after dinner. We had one rainy day so we spent a lot of time on our balcony and pool also. If you don’t get a room with the Skypool, not to worry because there is SOOO much to do at the resort and two HUGE pools you can use.
YES! All sandals resorts are all-inclusive (and adult only) so you can eat and drink as much as your little heart desires!
What does a Butler Suite Mean?
This means our room came with our own personal butlers! If your room does not come with a butler, a HIGHLY recommend requesting one! Our butlers were Willem, Marlon and Kurt!
They do EVERYTHING for you from making your dinner reservations to reserving you the perfect chairs on the beach or pool each morning. They bring you a little ice chest full of water, beer, etc to have next to you. You can call them when you need another drink at the beach, though we would just walk up to the bar at the beach. They also have servers walking around the beach taking orders if you don’t have a butler. We would call them to order room service, ask questions and they even brought us lunch at the beach. You get a little cell phone to carry around so you can call them at anytime! Hands down, they were the best!
Do you have to leave the resort for anything?
You can, but there is so much to do, we did not. There are 10 restaurants
How many pools do they have?
One is a chill pool with seating and a fire pit right in the middle of it and the second is more of a “party pool” with a swim up bar. Both are HUGE pools!
Are there night activities?
YES! Every single night. From games to performers, there’s never a boring moment. They have a huge covered area with swings and chairs, a bar, coffee station, couches, etc where they have events at night or just a place to chill during the day! The day it rained, we played bingo there!
Must eat at Restaurant?
Butch’s Steakhouse! We ate there on our last night. It’s delicious. You do have to make reservations so it’s recommended to make them for the night you choose when you arrive.
What makes it better than any other Sandals?
How long did you stay?
DEFINITELY not long enough! haha!
We stayed 4 days and 3 nights and we both said we wish we booked longer. I would highly recommend AT LEAST 5 nights so you have time to try all the restaurants and experience the whole resort.
Is it a long ride from the airport to the hotel?
No..it’s only FIVE minutes!!!
I remember when we went to St. Lucia for our honeymoon an
Do you have to buy your alcohol or is it included?
Everything is included. You even have bars in your room fully stocked with wines, champagne, beer, sodas, juice, and liquors.
Favorite drink while there?
This is a hard one! haha!
My FAVORITE was the nutty Russian!
Frozen drink would be between the mudslide and the hummingbird.
We want to book for our 20th wedding anniversary but is it more of a crowd for younger people?
That’s what I loved about this resort. There was a mix of all ages. And there were zero crazy, loud obnoxious people.
We actually had a couple sitting next to us on the beach that lives about 3 hours from us! Small world! There are some sandals are geared more towards a younger crowd, some geared more towards retired couples but this resort was a mix of both! It was perfect and definitely not overcrowded.
How was the weather?
We had one day that rained from about lunch until the evening and the rest of the days were gorgeous.
I learned that July-December is considered the rainy season.
January-June is considered the dry season but all year round, temps are in the 80’s.
Tell me everything I need to know…my husband and I are booking our trip..what should I pack?
YAY! first, you are going to have an AMAZING time!
We pretty much stayed in our bathing suits /coverups all day then changed for dinner at night. We packed a small little radio that connected to Bluetooth so we had a radio on the beach and on the balcony. Highly recommend that! There is free wifi so we just connected it to amazon music. Also, this is random, but the bathrooms (outside of your rooms) are SO clean and smell like a spa inside! They have board games available for you to take to your room if you wish and definitely check out the cocktails of the day! I always tried those and they were delicious! There’s a pizza restaurant called Dino’s and they had a pizza called the Florentina that my mouth is still watering over!
