IMG_0004We flew from DFW to Miami Florida in about two and a half hours and then boarded a flight, on a very small plane, headed to Nassau, Bahamas.  This flight, since the plane is so small, you must check your carry ons before you board but this is done at the plane just before you board. The flight was very short, about 45 minutes or so.  A beautiful flight it was too, being able to see such brilliant blue waters below.  Once we landed our carry ons were handed to us and we were off to pick up the rest of our luggage that was checked at DFW.  This process was relatively painless and they have some entertainers in the airport.  A van was waiting for us to Sandals Bahamian Resort.

Sandals Bahamian Resort, an all-inclusive, adults only resort, greeted us with a cold scented towel and led us to check in.  Myself a two other couples waited and we were all checked in together while they went over the resort amenities.  We arrived after 3:00pm so we were taken to our room immediately following instructions.  The rooms are pretty small but we were able to see the ocean.  Maid service is the slowest I have ever witnessed so don’t expect anything you ask for unless you ask multiple times.  Don’t let this get to you though because we still had a great time. The resort is definitely eye catching, Greek themed.

There are two pools each with their own beauty and of course pool bars. The service is very slow though.  There is a butler service where they save you chairs and wait on you but this is expensive so we did not partake.  The beach is beautiful.  If you like to snorkel, bring your gear because the water is so clear.  You will be able to see fish swimming through some rocks near the pier plus many starfish.

There are multiple restaurants and styles of food to choose from and only two do you have to dress up for.  Dinner reservations for your stay, you will want to make on the day of your arrival because they fill up fast. Two restaurants serve breakfast, Spice buffet and the French restaurant which you order from a menu.  Bring your own water to Spice because our entire stay, we never received our beverage before we were done eating. We really enjoyed the French for breakfast.  They have a restaurant open for lunch and dinner on an island across from the resort that a boat that leaves every hour will drop you off at.  Bring bug spray for dinner though because you will feel like you are the main course if you forget it.  My favorite was the pizza parlor just steps from the beach.  They will make it any way you like and place it in a box so you may take it anywhere to fill your tummy.
