You get 24 hour butler services, nightly entertainment, spa services that includes a massage, scuba diving, kayaks, 7 pools, and you even get to take a boat to the Sandals private island that includes even more things to do. Because the resort is all inclusive, you get everything included with just the one cost you pay when you go there. However, since everything is included prices are MUCH steeper than normal, in peak season a room can be between 1,000 and 2,000 dollars. Sandals offers lots of promotional deals though that help those who have trouble paying and in the off season it’s possible to get a room for 500 dollars per night.
8. Pink Sands Resort
The Pink Sands Resort is one of the more prestigious resorts and features little cottages in lush gardens of a bird sanctuary. The cottages that face the ocean have their own private paths to the beach and snorkeling and kayaking is offered daily for guests. What makes this resort really special is the pink sand beach. The sand on the beach is pink and is a marvel to behold if you ever get the chance to go there. Rates generally range from 500 to nearly 3,000 dollars per night depending on what type of room you get and if it’s peak season or not.
9. The Grand Lucayan
The Grand Lucayan is located on Grand Bahama island and is one of the largest and most popular resorts offered.

Prices here are generally cheaper than most luxury resorts. In peak season rooms can go from 200 to 300 dollars per night but during the off season it is not uncommon to see prices dip almost down to 100 dollars per night.
10. The Marley Resort
The Marley Resort is very limited when it comes to how many people can stay there. With a mere 16 uniquely designed rooms and suites, a first class spa, several restaurants, and gorgeous beach, this resort is very limited when it comes to rooms. The Marley Resort at one point was a private vacation home for the Marley family but is now open for anyone who wishes to vacation in The Bahamas. Rates are generally somewhat expensive averaging about 300 to 500 dollars per night. The only real issue is that you need to book your room months in advance because of the small number of rooms the hotel has.
