Colleen’s Sandals Bahamas – Part one!

We left today for our trip to Sandals Bahamas and we had a 4 hour stop in Toronto so we decided to buy passes to go into the Premium Plaza Lounge.  I am really a glad that we did as it is great to get out of the airport noise.  We arrived at 6:30 from the red eye to a full breakfast of hashbrowns, scrambled eggs and sausage.  The lounge had the full breakfast plus cereal, toast and drinks.  If you have a long layover you should think about buying a lounge pass.  One of our agents can help you with that.  After a quick nap it’s back out to the gate to catch our flight.  Next stop Nassau.

We arrived in Nassau and customs is a breeze.  We are through and at the Sandals desk in about 15 minutes.  Nice!  If you have ever been trough customs in Cancun, you will know what I mean.  After a wait of about 10 minutes we are off to the resort.  Just a short 15 minutes and we are pulling into Sandals Bahamas.  I immediately remember why I love Sandals.  We are greeted by great staff with a cold cloth and a welcome drink.  There are no kids, no wrist bands and no towel card; could it get much better than that?  Yes it can!  You are taken to a beautiful couch given a glass of champagne and then given your registration card.  When you are done you are taken to your room by a staff member answering questions along the way.  Our bags will follow.  We are staying in the Balmoral Tower in room 309.  We have a beautiful room facing the ocean.  We have arrived in paradise and loving it.
