We were privileged to visit this resort July 12-19, 2014, we traveled with five other couples who are dear, dear friends. Four couples booked butler packages on the Caribbean side, we did not. We were originally assigned room 402, but were upgraded to room 614 on the Caribbean side. The one other couple was assigned room 420 on the Caribbean... More

My husband and I traveled to Sandals from July 20th-27th, it was an incredible vacation, however it started off pretty rough. Upon arriving at the hotel we waited around for quite some time (about 2hrs) to be shown to our room. We stayed on the med side in a walkout suite, and at first the room seemed perfect. Later that...

We actually went to this resort in 2011 but I never got to write a review of how wonderful it was. I agree with the folks who say to stay in the Mediterranean Village. It's the newest part of the resort with gorgeous suites. We had our own living room and HUGE bathroom! You have to ask for the Chocolate... More

I really never write reviews, I have decided that since I read them constantly and question some reviews that I read, I am going to begin writing more frequently, starting here. We have been to numerous all inclusive resorts. We have been to Jamaica, Mexico and Bahamas. We have been to other Sandals as well as other companies. We have... More

My husband and I returned for Sandals just yesterday. I was very ambivalent about going because I found many negative reviews on this site. However, I decided that I needed to put those reviews to the side and make the best of what may not be the best vacation I've had. In other words, I was preparing for the worst.... More

My wife and I spent last week at Sandals Antigua. Start to finish the experience was spectacular. This was our first all inclusive vacation. Transportation from the airport was seamless. Check in was the first opportunity to accept that you were going to relax and be pampered. "Welcome. Please, sit, here is a cold towel, was your flight pleasant? Have... More

My wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at Sandals Antigua in June of this year. We are Sandals veterans and have been to several of the properties. This was our first visit to this property and our first time in Antigua. The resort is unique in that it is essentially two resorts in one. The newer side, the... More

My wife and I went down to Antigua with two other couples and we all had a wonderful time. From the pickup from the airport to the check-in at the club level desk we have no complaints. The food and attention customer needs was spot on. Additionally, the entertainment and shows were excellent and very relaxing. I must add we... More

Well, I have to say that this trip was JUST AWESOME!! This trip was part of a 40th birthday trip for my friends wife. They had never been to a SANDALS resort, and neither of the other 4 couples either. In true SANDALS fashion, the SANDALS staff did not let us down as usual. All we heard from the other... More
