Full statement from Sandals Resorts

Our customers are our top priority and under no circumstances would we exploit their faith in us. Our valued guests have never been unlawfully charged for taxes and allegations to the contrary are downright false. Not only do we conduct our business with pricing transparency, we meet all of our tax obligations in each of the islands where we call home.  We take great pride in being the gold standard in the islands where we operate and have spent close to four decades providing guests with the most comprehensive vacation experience bar none. We will of course vigorously defend against these baseless allegations.
