Sandals Royal Bahamian
Address: West Bay St.
Neighborhood: Cable Beach
It may be expensive, but it's the most luxurious of all of Sandals resorts and one of the most comfortable properties in the Caribbean - an estimated $20 million was pumped into restoring this property on the site of a hotel built in the '40s. The all-inclusive nightly rate affords access to the massive complex's seven sprawling pools (a few of which include man-made waterfalls), eight restaurants, full scale spa, extravagant gardens, and even a private off-shore island reached by ferry or kayak. Personal butlers attend to guests in the top villas and suites.
