I just came back from a trip to the Bahamas, where I stayed at the Sandals Royal Bahamian resort. We had a great time and were treated like royalty.
We arrived to beautiful 80 degree weather with blue skies. Once at the resort we were taken to our rooms almost immediately. Our room looked out over the ocean and I could see the cruise ships coming and going from downtown Nassau, and from the right vantage point I could even see Atlantis Paradise Island in the distance.
We checked in, changed in the room and then relaxed by the pool for an hour or so before we grabbed some dinner at the buffet before crashing. As usual, coming form the west coast always does a number on you when you head to east.
We awoke to sun and sand and as per my usual Sandals routine I slipped into my swim suit and flip flops and headed for the pool. We made a quick stop for some breakfast and then spent the day strolling between the pool and our lounge chairs, books in hand. That evening we had dinner at the Crystal Room restaurant, it was wonderful food and I fully recommend it.
After that the days are pretty much the same except that the next day was a beach day with dinner at the Baccarat French restaurant. The next day it rained for most of the day so we read books and watched movies and played games in the Royal Theatre with lots of others escaping the rain and had our dinner at the Italian restaurant, Casanovas.
The next morning dawned bright and beautiful and we had a choice to make…beach or pool or town? We headed into Nassau for some duty free shopping; electronics, jewelry and liquor and to see what we could find at the straw market such as purses, shells, beaded bracelets, t-shirts and more. We finished our day with dinner on the off-shore restaurant called Bombay’s.
I forgot to mention the English Pub with authentic furniture imported from Scotland and England, the wedding gazebo where couple after couple had their free weddings, the off-shore island we’re you can spend the day swimming, lounging in the sun or relaxing in the Zen Garden as well as have dinner at night, hot tubs, fitness room, aqua aerobics classes, snorkel and scuba boats and more.
