Do you have celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity that requires you to avoid eating gluten? Anyone who has dietary restrictions knows how difficult it can be to do. Wouldn’t it be nice to go on vacation and not have to manage your
restrictions? Well, with Sandals you AND your dietary restrictions can take a vacation! Eating at Sandals Royal Bahamian gluten free was convenient and quite delicious.
I recommend if you are going to be taking a Sandals vacation and have food allergies or sensitivities, let the resort know in advance. It will give you the most flexibility for dining options. The Sandals resort chain is very equipped to handle gluten-free and all other requests. In fact at Beaches Turks and Caicos, the Sandals family resort, they even have their own ‘culinary concierge’ office that specifically deals with any type of food issues. Here are a couple of my experiences of eating at Sandals Royal Bahamian gluten free:
Baccarat – I dined with three of my colleagues at this French restaurant. I ordered the seafood cocktail for an appetizer, salmon salad, and lobster for entrée. When the bread was brought to the table, I asked the server if there was any gluten free bread. The waiter responded they didn’t have any at this restaurant, but did have some at the
restaurant next door. I was pleasantly surprised when minutes later three slices of warmed gluten free bread were brought to the table. I was impressed not only how quickly the bread came from the other restaurant, but also on the quality of it. The rest of my meal came out timely already modified gluten free without me having to say another word. Slam dunk Sandals!
Catered dinner on Sandals private island – On our third night at the resort, Sandals hosted a catered dinner on
their private island. We were whisked away by boat from the main resort area to the private island. Upon arrival the water was lit up with romantic mood lights. It was breathtaking! Walking from the pier onto the island was like walking onto the most romantic movie set I could imagine. Burning tiki torches, gentle saxophone music, and flowing cocktails. After enjoying the ambiance of the island, we sat down at the festive tables for dinner. The first item presented to us was island crab cakes on spicy fruit salsa. Wow, did they look divine! However, I told the server I was gluten free and I could not eat them. About five minutes later, I received a tasty chicken and potato soup as a substitute for the crab cakes. The rest of my meal came out modified without me having to say another
word. Each time the server gave me my plate she stated it had been modified automatically gluten free. First, was a tropical salad on assorted greens. The entrée that followed was a grilled chicken breast topped with curried
baby shrimp with light jerk sauce, fresh market vegetables, and potato du Jour. Perfection Sandals!
I do not recommend waiting until the last minute like I did to let the server know about your food allergies.
It is easier for the resort and for you if this is done in advance. But, in wanting to put eating at Sandals Royal Bahamian gluten free to the test for my clients, even on the fly, they passed with flying colors. I thoroughly enjoyed every bite. I will not hesitate to send any clients with food allergies to Sandals Royal Bahamian.
