Sandals Royal Bahamian: January 2014

I was extremely fortunate to stay at Sandals Royal Bahamian in the Bahamas this past weekend.

I would tell you all about it in words, but the stay is much better described in photos.

Our room was awesome - it overlooked the main area of the resort, and the beach.  We had the sliding door open to our balcony each night to fall asleep to the waves.

Speaking of our room, our view wasn't half-bad!  Book your Sandals vacation through me, and I can help you pick the room that will beat your expectations!

When you check in first thing, you see a beautiful fountain, matching the theme of the resort.

When we first arrived late Friday afternoon, it was in the low 60s, so people had cleared out of the chilly pool (hey, it *is* January, after all!).  The place was hoppin' the next day!  Something that I noticed everywhere - ample seating!  Never before had I see so many lounge chairs.  You don't have to feel like you are cramped next to others, and there is always a "good chair" somewhere.

That Friday in January, as it hit about 62, the fire pits came in handy.  There aren't many things as relaxing as sitting around a fire pit, with a beverage, listening to the ocean waves wash up to the shore.

The layout of this resort is terrific.  It has an intimate feeling without feeling cramped.

This restaurant, on the pier, specializes in seafood (of course).  You can get a reservation by booking a butler category room.  Let me help you pick the best room and make arrangements to guarantee you a spot!  The food was amazing!

The perfect place to cool down.

Throughout the week, Sandals has beach parties, live music, late night chocolate buffets... you name it!  Here, they had a Junkaroo Party - complete with dancing, a DJ, and more.  Lots of fun to attend - whether or not you participate!

The water at Sandals Cay - Sandals' private island.  There is a ferry that goes over to the island each day.  There is a restaurant, a pool, a bar, and this crystal clear, amazing water.  Also included - the feeling of being far, far away from everything.

Another plus of a Sandals resort?  Free use of non-motorized sporting equipment.  Want to use a hobie cat?  Want to paddleboard?  Give it a shot!
