Sandals Resorts: Royal Bahamian

Updated on September 18, 2014

I have had the pleasure of living in Florida for the past 20 years, and have visited most of best vacation spots there are in our sunny state.

A few years ago my husband and I decided instead of doing something here as we normally do, we will leave the states..eeekkk! (I hated to fly at the time) we decided on the Bahamas. Specifically, Sandals Royal Bahamian.

As we all know vacations are very expensive. When you add up all the money spent on: food, drinks, gas, entertainment etc. Also there is a lot of time wasted; finding things, places to go, places to eat. With all inclusive you don't have to worry about any of that. Its all there the second you arrive!

Sandals All Inclusive Vacation
Sandals All Inclusive Vacation

We decided on Sandals in the Bahamas. All inclusive is the way to go. No bout a doubt it! We definitely got our moneys worth. Since that vacation we have visited a couple of Sandals resorts in Jamaica and and other all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. I am hooked.

In order to keep our sanity, we picked Sandals because it was just couples (no children). I cant relax around a pool with children around. I find myself constantly watching them to make sure they are okay, even when they are not my children. For those of you that are looking to bring your children, Beaches is an all-inclusive for the whole family. View our photo slideshow below.

On one of the days we left the resort and took a taxi to check out more of Nassau. We stopped in at Atlantis Resort & Casino and took some pictures. The photo on the right and the photos below are from Atlantis.

      I have been to several in this lens. I love the Outer Bank of the Carolina. The horses were amazing. I haven't thought about it in so long. We took my kids around 15 years or more ago.

      Wow! It's really pretty there. I should get my mom and dad to go there. My dad loves the beach and we never get to go.

      The Bahamas are a great place to take a vacation. St Thomas is my favorite, but you can't go wrong with Nassau!

      My favorite vacation spots are Hawaii and Puerto Rico. I've never tried all-inclusive but I've always wondered what it was like. Your lens has answered a lot of questions and make me think we'll try it one of these days. Thanks!

      We love the Riviera Maya and Puerto Vallarta. I agree, All Inclusive is the way to go. It certainly takes the stress out of vacations because you know exactly how much you are going to spend. No surprises at the end.

      Our trip to Key West was one of my favs. It is really expensive but so worth it. I think I would like to try an all inclusive one of these years. I am going back to Key West in November but maybe next year.

      We visit Walt Disney World about every two years, but I would love either a Caribbean vacation or to visit Hawaii! This all-inclusive looks wonderful!
