My husband and I recently spent 7 days at the Sandals Grande Antigua. This was our 4th Sandals resort, having also stayed at Royal Plantation (twice), Royal Bahamian, Emerald Bay, as well as at Beaches Negril for a family vacation. We opted to stay in the Caribbean side of the resort, which I'm glad we did as it is much... More

Sandals Antigua was our 9th Sandals vacation. I must say from a resort standpoint Antigua was so far the nicest resort. As I read the reviews here often I thought I would share some input for those of you considering this resort or Sandals overall. Pros: 1. Largest Sandals we have stayed at to date. This is key as even... More

Don’t expect to see drunken topless girls, rowdy guys, gang members or kids here, but this is a very Fun, Relaxing laid back place. No Worries Here. VC Bird Airport is small and friendly airport and it took about 20 minutes to go thru Immigration and Customs. The Immigration workers were very friendly and helpful. A new terminal is said... More

Sandals is Disneyland for adults. You pay an all inclusive price and food, drinks and water sports are included. It is located in a beautiful bay with a spectacular beach and a coral sea. There are several swimming pools of different sizes. The room on the Caribbean side was very comfortable. This should be paradise but it is not. The... More

I definitely have mixed reviews after spending 5 days at this resort for our honeymoon.... Arrival at the airport and transfer to Sandals was easy & well organized. In 20 minutes we were checking in. This is where issues started. Our room was not ready until 3:30 even though check in is at 3:00. We were assigned room 207 which... More

Wish I read more of the reviews before booking - would have booked on the Caribbean side instead of the Mediterranean side. This is really 2 resorts merged together. The Caribbean part of the resort was bought by Sandals and renovated, then they added the Mediterranean side. The Caribbean side is basically single "villas" or two story units. The Mediterranean...

We visited on the 1st of March and loved every moment of it. Great location, amazing grounds excellent staff, can't say enough good things about the place. All the restaurants had a varied range of quality food so in the ten nights we stayed there was never any repetition or boredom. We stayed in what we thought was a excellent... More

We have just returned from a week's vacation (Apr 5-12/14) and cannot say enough about this resort and staff. From the moment we arrived until the time we left, we were well pampered! Everytime we passed a staff member, they always had a smile, said hello and asked how we were regardless what their position was - that was truly... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week in late March 2014. Our vacation was amazing! Let me start out with the airport and checkin. I was nervous about the Antigua airport because I read so many reviews about how horrible and slow it can be. We must have really lucked out....our plane landed 10 mins early and about... More
