We had a wonderful vacation at this resort and hope to go back again. The staff is warm and friendly, always smiling and willing to go the extra mile. We have not one complaint, there is plenty to do or do nothing at all if you want. When you read some of the negative reviews you have to read between... More

The Sandal's Antigua is a beautiful resort. It's our second stay at a Sandals. For our first trip we stayed at the Whitehouse in Jamaica, which is very similar to this property so my review will, in part, compare the two. Overall Benefits 1) The value of the location cannot be matched. In the Whitehouse, and from what I hear... More

My husband and I wanted to take a special trip for my 60th birthday. Our travel agent , Tiffany , at AAA recommended Sandals Antigua. It was a little more than we wanted to spend but after looking at this Sandals Resort online we booked the trip. So glad we did. It is by far the best vacation we have... More

We were here the week of June 21-28. We stayed on the Mediterranean side and had a beautiful view and room. Our room was not ready when we got there, so we went to the pool bar and ordered a drink. It was ready when we got back to the Lobby. The resort grounds are beautiful. The food was very... More

Time to plan another vacation but not with Sandals. Last year I should have done this review, sorry. Will start with check in. Was disorganized. After being up for 12 hours they only had mimosa's, no water. Two bites of food. Sat and waited for 11/2 hours before given room. No offer to go get something to eat or drink... More

We decided on Sandals through our local travel agent who raved about them for all-inclusive resorts. After arriving at the airport, we got into taxi cabs that took us to the resort. It was nice to have a driver who also shared some information about the island. Upon checking in, our room was not ready since we arrived in the... More

We stayed in the sunset bluff walkout room (club level) in June 2014 which was in a good position for the restaurants and pools, one pool being right outside our room. There are always plenty of towels available for the beach and the pool. The four poster bed was large and very comfortable. We had a fridge stocked with beer,... More

I am not quite sure where to start with this review as we were promised the holiday of a lifetime by a Thomsons advisor who we booked with and paid Dubai - Atlantis The Palm prices. This review will be long as I feel prospective holiday guests need to know what to expect when visiting this resort. Firstly, when you... More
