The property is absolutely gorgeous. It's like Disney Land for adults. My husband really enjoyed our stay. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. On the afternoon of our anniversary, much to our surprise, when we arrived at our room, we were greeted with a bubble bath with rose pedals and a bottle of champagne! This was very nice. Most...

I can't imagine someone having anything to complain about at this resort. We stayed in a butlered villa on the Mediterranean side of the resort. Simply beautiful. Our butlers Wendell and Sheldon did an amazing job from bringing surprise frozen concoctions to planning our evening dinners. We were treated extremely well the whole trip. The only improvement could be the... More

In tears and ready to destroy everything in this "suite." Let's start with the sandals registry. Just so you know how it really works... So registry sounded nice. And we got all the tours/spa treatments by our family and friends we requested. So apparently you have to book way before you go. Ii was so excited about the West Indian... More

This was the best all-inclusive vacation. The food was excellent, the staff was amazing, and the drinks were plentiful! We stayed in the newer Mediterranian side, but we could have stayed in the Carribbean side and had just as great a time. We did not stay in our room that much so don't get caught up in the room itself.... More

Sandles Grande Antigua was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the warm weather after Christmas Holidays.We enjoyed the beautiful Caribbean side as it was quieter as well as closer to the beach.We stayed in room 203 and could see the ocean from our walk out room.The food was good but really enjoyed renting a cabana every day and Marsha...

We stayed for our Honeymoon June 9-14 2014. We recommend the older side.. It really gives you the Caribbean feel and is so private. Do not let the fact that it is older than the new side scare you away. It is worth it!!! The private room with personal pool is just perfect! Our butlers made sure we had private... More

Everything about this hotel is superior: the expansive, soft sand beach with clear, calm Caribbean ocean water; the signature pool with swim up bar; the clean, well maintained accommodations (choice of older, quainter, low level Caribbean section closer to the ocean, or modern, high rise, marbly Mediterranean section set back with great ocean views); the many restaurants with a variety...

Not worth it! St. Lucia blew this one out the water. The grounds are absolutely beautiful but the service was horrible! HORRIBLE. We went for 10 days with 36 of our wedding guest and they all agreed. We had a butler room, what a waste. I had to complain to higher up ranking to get the Butlers to answer the... More
