Sandals Resorts recently hosted seven travel agents from Ontario and Newfoundland to showcase their newest destination – Barbados – and the luxury of their two resorts on the island. The group stayed at Sandals Barbados, but with Sandals’ exclusive exchange program, were also able to enjoy the amenities at the new Sandals Royal Barbados (which opened in December). Agents personally experienced the value of a Sandals Luxury Included Vacation in Barbados for their clients with an array of options between the two resorts including five pools, 17 restaurants, 12 bars and more.
