The Caribbean is constantly at the top of the list of must-visit resorts in the Caribbean. With all-inclusive resorts like Sandals, a top-notch vacation on any Caribbean island becomes even more relaxing and unforgettable. While these resorts’ prices are generally steeper than regular ones, nothing can top the experience they provide. Lessen your financial worries with Sandals’ last-minute deals, special promos, and discounts.
Why Stay At Sandals Resorts
Among other resorts of this kind in the Caribbean, Sandals is the all-inclusive resort with the most inclusions. Even before you arrive at the resort proper, you can already experience the difference with their free airport transfers (an exclusive airport lounge is available for resorts in Jamaica and St. Lucia).
At the resort, you’ll be treated to a 5-star gourmet dining experience (up to 16 dining options). They also have up to 11 bars (some resorts have swim-up and over-the-water bars, too). As for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and premium liquors — you’ll also get unlimited access to those.
You’ll never run out of things to do at Sandals because they have a long list of water and land activities. Their aquatic sports (e.g., PADI-certified scuba diving, snorkeling) are particularly cost-effective because the gear, equipment, and professional instruction are already included in the cost. Their amenities include pools and fitness centers, among others.
In select resorts, green fees and shuttles to nearby golf courses are also covered. If there is a sister resort near where you’re booked, you can take advantage of their exclusive exchange program, allowing you to easily expand your choices of amenities and activities.
Book at least three nights, and you can have your own tropical wedding there for free. They have a dedicated wedding planning team and photo and video services you can avail. The best thing about this is that the resort can already serve as your honeymoon destination — and that’s one less financial-heavy thing to worry about.
Note that the cost of your stay also already includes tops, taxes, and gratuities, except for butlers (that is, if you book top-tier suites to get a personalized butler service and want to give them a separate tip). Did we mention that they also have free WiFi?
How To Get The Best Deals At Sandals Resorts
Sandals has properties in some of the most beautiful Caribbean gems:
Though each resort in this chain has its own charm, they all have a common goal: to give guests an upscale tropical getaway that’s hard to beat.
That indeed comes with an expensive price tag. But as you may have already read in other Caribbean travel tips and guides, Sandals offers an array of special deals.
Sandals Last Minute Deals
More often than not, three days isn’t enough to fully enjoy the Caribbean. If you book a stay of at least three to four nights at a Sandals resort during select travel dates, you can get one more night for free — courtesy of Sandals Last Minute Deals.
In other resort-specific last-minute deals, you can get additional hundreds of dollars worth of resort credit or have a personal butler at a more affordable price (like what is offered by Sandals Royal Plantation and Ochi Beach).
The challenge for you is always keeping your eyes open on last minute deals offered by any of the Sandals resorts. Check out their specific page for this offering and quickly decide as they don’t last that long.
Sandals 777 Deals
This aptly named 777 deal lets you enjoy an additional 7% off discount on rack rate promotions on 7 select rooms. Take note that the offer lasts only for 7 days, but it is refreshed weekly (this means that in the next seven days, the available qualifying rooms and travel windows will change).
It’s a limited-time offer, so be sure to take advantage of it — especially when you see that the resort location you’re eyeing is included in the list.
If you’re still not decided where to stay in the Caribbean, Sandals can help you narrow down your choice with their roster of resort specials.
