Soul,style,and heart are the best way to describe our treatment at Sandals resort Antigua. My boyfriend and I needed to have a relaxing and peaceful vacation after a cold and demanding winter in the NE. Dreams of being treated well and everything planned for us was our intent in spending the money we did at Sandals. It was worth every... More

Best beach I've ever seen - it's absolutely picture perfect. Hotel left a lot to be desired. Slow service at the restaurants & when we called for room service, our room not ready until about two & a half hours after we arrived despite us arriving in the afternoon, disappointing food quality & choices for a five-star hotel. Nearby there... More

We've just returned from our first Sandals experience at Antigua, so this review's about both Sandals and the Antigua resort. First, the good. It's a lovely resort, well maintained and on a stunning beach. Don't let the naysayers put you off about either the beach vendors or other people on the beach (it's a public beach after all). The vendors... More

Everything was perfect here. We stayed in the Mediteranean side. Room was "ocean view grand deluxe club level". Gorgeous room. Gorgeous bathroom. Fully stocked bar (real full size bottles). Restaurants were all amazing. Only 2 required reservations - and they weren't our favourites. Our favourite was Marios because of the amazing antipasto buffet and best food. Attended the wine tasting... More

This was our 3rd sandals holiday so had a good idea on what to expect but didn't expect the non existing welcome at airport or at the resort, we had to look for the sandals desk which was situated outside of Antigua airport and had to interrupt the two ladies that kept talking to provide our names, once they put...

This was my first all-inclusive experience and my husband's second. We were lucky enough to have a butler suite on the mediterranean side. Upon arrival we were given a cell phone that at a push of of a button would put us in touch with our butler. The staff were all very friendly, and our butler could not have been... More

This was THE BEST vacation I ever went on. This was the first time my wife and I went to any Sandals resorts. We did a great deal of research beforehand and we had very high expectations. In the end, our expectations were surpassed and more than satisfied, to say the least. The hotel grounds were beautiful, the food was... More

This property is amazingly beautiful, sits on a big nice beach and the water sports are great because most are free! Send your partner out early in the morning, like 8am, to claim chairs on the beach. Otherwise, you are sitting on the sand. You get ONE FREE PHOTO from the photo shop. They have professional photographers all over the... More

The grounds wer byond beautiful. You need to ensure the correct location of your room. To have the best vacationyou have to purchase the butler services. I heard people say they had to get up really early to get seats by the pool because the butlers would get all the good seats. The restaurants were easy to get into at... More

Had a wonderful 2 week holiday at Sandals. The staff, food and entertainment were excellent. Beautiful beach - very safe. So many excellent restaurants and the Cafe de Paris has the best cakes in the world! Try the Nut Pie - you will be hooked.
