Sandals Grande Antigua far exceeded my expectations. My husband and I chose Sandals because I have Celiacs Disease and have to eat gluten free. Chef Donovan met with me when I arrived and went over a meal plan. He assured me not to worry and sent my information out to all of the restaurants on the resort. I simply identified... More

My husband and I decided to split up our honeymoon between two resorts in the Caribbean and spent the first five days at the Sandals Antigua resort. We had a butler rondoval on the beach and loved everything about our room and our experience. I was surprised the first morning by the sounds of all the birds, frogs and crickets... More

I love trip advisor, but the problem is you can sometimes get bogged down with some negative reports. My daughter got married at Sandals on 25th August and we wanted to share her day so booked our two week holiday. The holiday cost us about £2,000 more than we normally pay and so you can imagine how we were feeling... More

My new husband and I spent one week here in July as part of our honeymoon and we were absolutely delighted with our whole experience. This resort is so beautiful. The beach is fabulous. We were greeted by Stanley on arrival and we were made to feel so welcome. This was our first time to do an all inclusive resort... More

My husband and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary at the resort August 16th - 23rd. The last time we were at a Sandals resort was when we met so we weren't sure what to expect. We were both very pleased! Let me first say that this is our 9th all-inclusive resort. It's nice to go to a resort and... More

We returned from Sandals a week ago and now, sitting in the rain in England, are missing it desperately! We spent two weeks there and had an amazing time. The food was excellent, good quality and a choice of 11 restaurants, some we preferred to others. Our favourite had to be Barefoot, lunchtime it was an American diner and in... More

Well, where do we start? The van driver was rude and condescending. The food was just terrible, terrible and terrible. The birds fly onto the buffet food and they don't always change it out after the birds eat at it. The beach vendors were more annoying than any other island beach I have ever been on. The drug activity on... More

The trip was amazing. The resort was exceptional and clean. The food was pretty awesome as well. My favorite part was the beach area. It was gorgeous, clear, & free of debris. The staff had a great attitude, friendly, & helpful. I've traveled the Caribbean for about 14 years and this is the first hotel that really blew me away.... More

Visited Sandals Grande Antigua in January and loved every minute of it. The only negative was the housekeeping - glasses in the room were not cleaned and toiletries were not replenished. On the plus side, food (more vegetarian options would be appreciated) and drinks were great, beautiful scenery. Rooms were slightly old fashioned but still functional. I would recommend swimming...

We stayed in the Honeymoon beachfront walk around beautiful position although the rooms were a little dated and the beds squeak. But nice to be able to walk out to the pool and beach from our room. The gym was close by. Rooms were kept very clean and the staff did there best to make sure your stay was good.... More
