Gluten Free Travel to Nassau, Bahamas
I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2000. I am married with two daughters, a step-daughter and step-grandson. Following a gluten-free diet is becoming easier. Thanks to the efforts of many, the awareness and knowledge of celiac disease has increased in the last 10 years.View all articles by April Baxter

Celiac.com 07/17/2010 - My husband and I recently returned from a trip to the Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort in Nassau, Bahamas. What a wonderful experience! The resort itself was beautiful but the people working there made the vacation special. Prior to our arrival, I contacted the General Manager, Jeremy Mutton, advising him of my dietary requirements. He promptly responded that I would be taken care of without any problems and had informed the appropriate staff.
Upon our arrival, I was greeted by the Executive Sous Chef, Seanette Brice, and the Food/Beverage Manager, Sieon Wintz, who catered to all my dietary needs. I was so impressed by their knowledge of celiac disease and how they took the necessary precautions in having all of my meals prepared.
I highly recommend visiting this resort for a relaxing, gluten-free travel experience. I did ask if all Sandals resorts catered to gluten-free needs, but they could not speak on their behalf – each destination would have to be contacted.
