We just got back yesterday and I would sincerely tell you to spend your money elsewhere. The were more negatives than positives for this resort. The accommodations (we stayed at a club level suite) were ok and the grounds were VERY pretty but the service and food were terrible. The food selection was very poor (e.g. they had yellowish green... More

My wife and I just returned in December after having stayed 3 nights. To be honest with you having just spent 4 days at another very quiet resort on the other side of the island we wished that we could have returned immediately. That property allowed children, so we thought we would end up an adults only more Romantic resort.... More

My wife and I have visited Sandals @ Antigua often. Our November visit was excellent. Andre Marshall and Karen, Ken were great. They all made us feel at home. Mr G the manager often took the time to speak to us. The food was constanly very good. The different chefs often came out of the kitchen to speak to us.... More

It's accurate to say we are Sandals regulars. Our first stay was at Ocho Rios in 2007 and we have vacationed at Sandals once each year since. This was our first visit to Antigua and we would definitely return. I would rate it just slightly better than the other Sandals we have visited, mainly because the beach is as beautiful... More

I've been to Sandals Bahamas, St Lucia, and Antigua...with Antigua slightly edging out the other two Sandals resorts as my favorite so far. This is by no means a put down of the other two Sandals resorts, we had a great time at their locations as well. Sandals Antigua was a little better. Clean resort, excellent beach, the excursions offered... More

The 1 star goes to the island of Antigua, the beach is beautiful and the weather amazing. However, staying at Sandals Antigua was a HUGE mistake. My husband and I have travelled all over the Caribbean and this was by far our worst experience ever. The absolute worst part of this resort is the beach is public and you are... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful week of relaxation the first week of December. We stayed on the Med side and the rooms were nice with a good view of the grounds and ocean. We spent most days at the beach which was beautiful. The white sandy beach and the warm water was amazing. The restaurants are excellent, one... More

My husband and I got married last year and were unable to take our honeymoon right away due to his new job. Flash forward to over a year later and we are FINALLY taking our once in a lifetime dream vacation! We hadn't taken a vacation in over 5 years so we had been looking forward to this for a... More

As with all Sandals the hotel rooms are of a high standard even the entry level rooms are high quality. The ultra all inclusive is exactly as they say it is. The location is good just 15 mins from the airport. This is our second visit to this resort and as the last time we feel that after building the... More
