Private plunge pools, sleek outdoor furnishings, king-size beds, fully-stocked bars, tranquillity soaking tubs, Butler Elite services, and 24-hour room service are also featured in these suites.
There are a couple of different variations of Rondoval suites between the Sandals Resorts including beachfront Rondoval suites with beautiful ocean views, swim-up Rondoval Suites, and butler suites. These concepts tend to overlap in a sense within individual resorts.
