Fitness Center at SDR

Can anyone tell me what the fitness center is like at SDR? Do they have any cardio machines? Eliptical/stairclimber/treadmills? It was hard to tell on Sandals website photos. Does it get crowded? Thinking about hitting in the mornings. Is there air cond?

Any info greatly appreciated!!

hi,

the gym is just ok. its outside so make sure you spray bug spray cuz they like feet. no one really goes. the machines are old, but the cardio stuff is ok. its nice i liked it, nothing special tho.

My husband used the fitness center daily. It is by the spa, so there is a hot tub, sauna, and showers close at hand. It is open-air, but it is in a shady, secluded area.

As far as the question about water sports - there are hobie cats, floating bikes, kayaks, a small glass bottom boat, and snorkling. They used to have water skiing, but I read that has been dropped.

See you soon, Sandshara!

Perhaps we will see you in the fitness center. My husband will be on the golf course, so prob just me & another couple. Say hey if you see a chatty blonde huffin & puffin!!LOL If I don't see you -thank you so much for all of your valuable input, it has been a pleasure. Thank you to all that have offered information-it really helps when you don't know what to expect. I will be sure to submit a review and lots of photos upon our return. Cheers fellow advisors!!

Does SDR provide pool/beach towels?

Also, do they have in-room safes.

Do they have ice cream?

Do they have bottled Red Stripe?

Thanks!

Hi Jamie,

Yes, they have towels for the beach and the pools. You just give your room # and they write down how many you take.

They have safes in the rooms.

They have always had ice cream at the lunch buffet. You have to look for it or you might miss it. It is not self-serve, someone will scoop it for you and they have several different toppings.

I don't remember my husband drinking Red Stripe out of a bottle, just draft. Maybe some concierge rooms have it in bottles, I'm not sure.
