Alexandra Resort or Sands at Grace Bay

We have stayed at the Sands before but was wondering about the Alexandra Resort. Would welcome any comments.

I've stayed at both. I bought a timeshare at the Alexandra. Love both, but like that the Mango Reef is right outside my front door, and it's a closer walk to the Bight Reef. They now have room service, and a kids club.

We just returned from our stay at the Alexandra and found it to be one of the most enjoyable experiences we've had on a vacation. Our unit, a 1br overlooked the garden area and pool. It was so peaceful and I particularly liked having a kitchen since there was nearby access to groceries via cab.

The Mango Reef dining experience was excellent, you simply cannot beat the view especially at sunset. Other area dining is great, my first suggestion would be the Beach House, more upscale but the food and service is incredible. The nearby Lemon Cafe is also a great escape for lunch. Both are close but a taxi is recommended. Also minutes away by cab or about a 20 minute walk is the Salt Mill, a great little shopping and dining area. A must see for all visitors.

What I like most about the Alexandra is the quality and cost of the overall experience. Spacious and comfortable accommodations, friendly staff and a host activities you can book off property such as diving and snorkeling. Grace Bay Beach is a beauty all its own, walking is such a treat along the beach.

The Sands is a vary nice resort, but the relaxed feeling and service quality I receive at the Alexandra is unbeatable. I was also surprised at the number of other guests I met that have stayed at the Alexandra year after year. I recommend giving the Alexandra a try as it is easy to see why it is the favorite place of so many guests.
