10 reasons why Sandals has the best All-Inclusive resorts

With a background in sales and a passion for helping others, I tend to develop a small obsession with companies that provide top of the line customer service. My favorites are, as you may know, are all things Disney, Chick-Fil-A and now Sandals luxury All-Inclusive Resorts. They are the World’s only 5 star luxury included resorts & World’s Leading All-Inclusive Company for 21 years in a row! (Wow, that’s a mouthful..) While I have access to booking pretty much any All-Inclusive resort out there for my clients,  I ALWAYS suggest Sandals resorts first! Here are my top 10 reasons why I believe Sandals has the best All-Inclusive resorts out there!

These beaches are famous for their endless white stretches of sand and dreamy turquoise waters. Whether it be Jamaica, Bahamas, St. Lucia, Antigua, Grenada, or Barbados, you are sure to experience a unique luxury island getaway no matter which you choose!

With 21 different cuisines from around the world, your dining experiences will be one of the most impressive highlights during your All Inclusive vacation! 

Luxury suites like no other

All of Sandals suites come with an uncompromising commitment to luxury! From dramatic cliffside villas, lavish skypool Butler suites, to the Caribbean’s first and only Over the Water bungalows and villas, your stay is bound to be unlike any other! Each room is complete with Mahogany furnishings, King-size beds, Premium linens, Pillow menu, full stocked in-room bars, flat screen TVs, marble baths, His & Her bath robes, concierge services and so much more! My heart is dying to spend a week (or month) in their new luxury over the water villas! Guys… those things are amazing and you don’t have to fly 16+ hours to get to them! 


Personal Butler

Ever dreamed of having a real life Butler wait on you hand and foot? Go ahead and raise your hand! I know I have! 

Well only Sandals offers an unprecedented Butler Service with Butlers trained by The Guild of Professional English Butlers. (yes, that is a thing! They provide butlers and valets to nobility and celebrities worldwide) This service is only available in the highest level of suites and will provide you with an unimaginably supreme standard of service and luxury. Where your every need is anticipated. Your Butler will help make your special vacation the most memorable ever. While I am here to assist with every detail of your vacation prior to arrival, they will anticipate your every need and will cater to you with unobtrusive grace. From drawing you a rose-petaled candlelit bath to pressing your wardrobe, your Butler is there to make sure your stay is F-L-A-W-L-E-S-S!

Unique Entertainment and activities 

Are you a social butterfly who loves to be entertained? There are endless events happening on property day and night. From chic gatherings to exciting shows, themed parties and events, your stay is bound to be full of excitement! Seeking adventure? Only Sandals includes unlimited Diving with the best in equipment, staff and unbelievably gorgeous dive sites. Or take in the luscious green scenery while enjoying unlimited play and complimentary greens fees on a Greg Norman designed 18-hole championship course! (9-hole Executive course available at Sandals Regency La Toc)

Private Island Escape

Two vacations for the price of one with Sandals offshore private islands! You heard that correctly. The Royal Caribbean and Royal Bahamian resorts give you access to exotic private islands that feature pristine beaches, pool with swim-up bar, private cabanas and hammocks, romantic firepits and tons more!

Resort & Island Hopping

Can’t decide between which island or resort to visit? No Worries! Sandals offers a “Stay at one, Play at all” program that provided you with free transportation and access to other Sandals resorts within the same town during your stay. What is even better than that is their “Island Hopping” program! You can explore other Sandals resorts on multiple Caribbean islands during your stay! AMAZING!! So many of my couples have a hard time deciding between St. Lucia, Antigua and Grenada.. now they don’t have to! 

More Luxury Inclusions

After spending so much time researching resort options for clients I have learned first hand that Sandals offers more quality and luxury inclusions than ANY OTHER RESORT out there! Where else have you found free Scuba Diving and rounds of golf on celebrity designed professional courses?

Other things that are included in the price of your stay:

  • Taxes, Tips, Transfers
  • As many as 12 bars per resort with unlimited Premium Spirits & 6 premium house wines
  • Unlimited Land Sports such as Tennis, Basketball, Beach Volleyball, Fitness Centers and so much more!
  • Every water sport imaginable is included along with top-of-the-line equipment and professional instruction
  • Free Wifi in all public areas and all rooms
  • Airport lounge and resort transfers
  • Free-form lagoon pools, each with a unique personality and many are just steps from the sea.

Optional add on features

  • Adventure with Caribbean Adventure Tours – These islands have way more to offer than swim up bars and sandy cabanas. From deep-sea fishing, dolphin encounters to mountain biking and dune buggy excursions, explore these Caribbean islands far off the beaten path.


  • Give back with The Sandals Foundation – Through initiatives that support, uplift and improve the lives of the Caribbean people, the Sandals Foundation represents a way for Sandals and Beaches resorts to give back to their community. You can choose to participate in a community event or activity that helps give back to the amazing communities you are visiting.


  • Relax with Red Lane Spa– From indoor sanctuaries to exotic outdoor settings there is a magical spa experience awaiting you! Can you imagine an island cane sugar scrub in a cabana next to the ocean?


FREE Destination Wedding!

Yes. I just said that. FREE DESTINATION WEDDING. When you honeymoon at Sandals for three nights or more they give you a free “Beautiful Beginnings Wedding” package or you can use that value toward creating the Wedding of your dreams! They have an amazing team of designers on staff who have put together 6 pre-designed themes if you want a stress free planning experiences. If you are more hands on they will work with you to make sure your wedding is created by you and filled with all your personal touches. On top of that, they offer a great incentive for couples who want to come visit their resort in person prior to the Wedding! I couldn’t say enough positive things about their WeddingMoons program.

  1. Love your photos and this place looks like a dream!! I might just start planning for my wedding there already heh. I absolutely love luxury resorts and have only been in one in my entire life so I’m looking forward to my next. Definitely adding this to the list!

  2. I have never been nor heard of Sandals but sounds amazing. I am actually more the low budget traveler but spoiling yourself once in a while is a must. Thanks for sharing.

  3. It’s been at least 10 years since I’ve done an all inclusive, unless you count Four Seasons Serengeti, which I don’t put in the same category. Any-hoo, it looks like Sandals has stepped up their game. I can get behind private islands and butlers.

  4. Such a great luxury hotel, lovely presentation of all the facilities, services, amenities and all other offers and services of this place. The highlight for me would be the pool and the island. would love to book a whole week here.

  5. I wish I read this post before booking my first all inclusive vacation a few months back at a different resort! It really sounds like Sandals is the go-to place for an all inclusive vacation. I wasn’t the happiest ever with the concept of the all inclusive but after reading this I definitely want to give Sandals a shot!

  6. I’m not at all an all inclusive type of person. They look amazing though and I’m sure the pictures don’t do justice 🙂 Amazing places anyway.

  7. I’ve heard so much about Sandals resorts and now I know why! Hubby and I have only been on one real vacation in 14 years, and that was to the Excellence Resort in Punta Cana for my daughter’s wedding. So it wasn’t Sandals, but it was also all-inclusive and looked very similar to the photos you showed here. This is the kind of vacation I’d want to take to escape the Maine winter!

  8. Wow the whole free destination wedding thing seems unbeatable. I would never do it because I have to plan everything myself…but totally worth it for someone else. I love the lux suites and all the add on items. Never stayed at a Sandals but would love to!

  9. Oh my goodness! How amazing. I had no idea they offered all that. Random question but do you know how sandals handles food allergies? That’s our biggest struggle with traveling.

    1. We also have a few food allergies! Two of my favorite companies to travel with is Sandals and anything Disney. Both of them go above and beyond to accommodate those with allergies or sensitivities and take it very seriously!

  10. Awesome, Guess everyone who reads this will fall in for Sandals resort, amazing that they have properties right on the beach and cuisines served for 21 countries..awesome
