Just got back from the Bahamas. Dana and I stayed at the Sandals Grand Bahamian Resort. It's all-inclusive and it was awesome. After sorting out problems with the room, we were upgraded to a "Junior Suite." Very spacious with a balcony over looking the pool and the ocean. It had a "mini-bar" that wasn't mini at all! Full bottles of Vodka, Rum, Gin, Whiskey (all generic or Bahamian - but all free!), as well as bottles of red and white wine, juices, and cokes.
There were two major pools with swim-up bars where everyone hangs out and the staff runs games and trivia from time to time and several other mini-pools and tons of hot tubs throughout the property. Lots of hammocks, too. There was also a separate island that they ferried us to with another pool bar and more beach. The water was crystal clear and surprisingly not that salty. I could swim with my eyes open for about ten minutes before the salt bothered me and I could see great without goggles or a mask.
The food and the restaurants were awesome and I took the opportunity to try a lot of foods that I don't normally eat. The eggs benedict was so good, I went back and got more the next day. I had rack of lamb that was unbelievably tender. I tasted caviar and escargot (the escargot tasted like mushrooms to me - I wasn't crazy about the caviar).
As for the drinks - we had every fruity thing you could think of - Bahama Mammas, Miami Vices, Tequila Sunrises, Pina Coladas, etc. etc. The bartenders were funny as hell (actually most of the staff was). And they offered my wife a Baby-Maker. I told them hell no! The next day, I said, "No baby-makers!" so the bartender givers her "Octo-mom Juice" instead.
I don't have a lot of great stories because we purposely did not sight-see much. We just spent most of the day at the pool or the beach and most of the nights getting our drink on. They had a piano bar that was fun and dancing and an English-themed pub. I got completely trashed last night and got on stage with the band and danced on stage with them. We watched a wedding while sitting in a hot tub. We also did a couple's massage and a program called "In Each Other's Hands" where they teach you how to massage your wife and vice-versa. The Couples Massage was on the beach and that was awesome because they did it with "lava-shells" that heat up. We could hear the waves crashing on the shore the whole time.
All in all, it was a great get-away for my wife and I and an awesome time for us to reconnect with each other without kids and remember what it's like to be together dating and without the stresses that family life can bring.
I'll post pics later!
