Sandals Resorts offer gluten free all inclusive vacations
If you or a family member has celiac disease, gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity you may wonder if it is safe to vacation or honeymoon at an all-inclusive resort such as Sandals or Beaches. Other concerns might be the variety or quality of gluten free foods at a Sandals Resort or even if dietary restrictions might detract from a gluten intolerant guest’s relaxation and enjoyment of an all-inclusive resort vacation.
- Sandals and Beaches Resorts support all dietary restrictions and needs
- They make it easy
- There are lots of choices
- The food is delicious
- It’s all included and up to 65% off for families and adults
The Mayo Clinic has published lists of food and drink safe for celiacs, those foods which are not to be consumed and others to be avoided unless labeled gluten free. However restaurant menus are designed to entice the palette, not detail ingredients, and gourmet cooking and presentation relies on sauces, marinades, gravies and seasoning mixes that may not be safe for gluten intolerant travelers. Importantly, even when ingredients aren’t a problem, there is the danger of cross contamination from foods prepared on a shared surface or with utensils that were used to prepare gluten-containing foods and even a trace amount of gluten can make a celiac quite ill. So this issue is serious and an important factor in choosing the best all inclusive resort for a gluten free vacation
We understand your concern. One of Totem Travel’s Sandals Specialists has severe food allergies in her family and her husband is gluten intolerant while our owner travels regularly with a celiac friend. So we speak from personal experiences when we say that all Sandals and Beaches Resorts take food allergies, dietary needs and restrictions very seriously and a gluten intolerant guest or celiac can fully enjoy a Sandals Resort or Beaches Resort vacation. No problem mon!
It begins with training and awareness. Every member of the wait staff at each of the restaurants is trained to ask about food allergies and can point out menu items a celiac must avoid, items that are gluten free and dishes that may be modified for a gluten intolerant guest. If in doubt, the chef will be consulted.
Then there is quality and selection. You’ll find the least number of celiac friendly choices at the English style pub, although they do offer gluten free beer, but every Sandals and Beaches restaurant has gluten free menu items and the variety in dining options is huge. You’ll find steaks and seafood, Caribbean dishes, French cuisine, Italian, sushi, Mediterranean, Asian and a delicious gluten free pizza at the brick oven pizzeria. Even the oh so tempting coffee shop and bakery has gluten free desserts and brides can order gluten free cupcakes for their destination wedding at Sandals or Beaches. And here’s more good news! Every restaurant and menu item is included in the cost of your Sandals honeymoon, adult only Sandals vacation or Beaches family vacation. There are no surcharges such as you find at other inclusive resorts or on a cruise.
Of course gluten sensitivity is just one of many dietary restrictions that an all inclusive resort guest might have but Sandals and Beaches Resorts are able to meet all customary food needs without special arrangements and every one of their 18 all inclusive resorts on 8 Caribbean islands will accommodate even the most unusual requirement with a few weeks’ notice. So whether you are lactose intolerant, allergic to peanuts, vegan or keep kosher you can be comfortable and confident vacationing at an adult only Sandals Resort or family friendly Beaches Resort.
