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.

This is my second visit since 2013 and overall the experience was very good. The staff are all friendly and helpful which is the key to Sandals success. In my opinion the food in the restaurants has improved since 2013, (especially in the Bayside & Mario's) and there is a good range of dining choices. The accommodation quality is of... More

My wife and I just came back from a week long vacation from Sandals Grande Antigua. It was the best vacation we've had so far. We've been to Bahamas, Key West, and other Caribbean Islands and I must say, staying at Sandals Grande Antigua is definitely worth the money. Almost all of the couples we've met during our departure wanted... More
