We arrived at the sandals Antigua Sunday May 24. We were in sandals grande St Lucian a week prior. Upon arrival at grande Antigua, we weren't greeted, didn't receive a wet cloth to cool off. We had to wait for our room as it wasn't ready, which was fine. We decided to go have breakfast at Mario's since it was... More

This place is simply beautiful! It lies on beautiful Dickenson Bay, surrounded by beautiful white sand, and the most beautiful clear aqua ocean. You can relax at the beach or participate in the free water sports the resort has to offer. My husband and went kayaking, I paddled boarded around the bay, and we both layer out on these floating...

We were there for 9 nights this May for our wedding-moon and had a terrific time. We stayed on the Caribbean side in one of the pool side rooms. The room was a bit dated but it was large and clean with a very comfortable king size bed, a balcony, and a great view. Our room had a mini-bar that... More

Our first time ever to Sandals Grande Antigua for our destination wedding! Transportation: When you land at the airport there are "yellow shirt men & women" who will attempt to grab your luggage at the belt and take it to the Sandals booth. They do expect payment (and yes they take American dollars) They will be persistent with trying to... More

The hotel and beach are beautiful with good restaurants and facilities. Huge resort so not that intimate with maintenance going on. This wasn't the only downside, some of the American guests were a disgrace. They were there for a short period of time, just a few days but did not respect other guests. Many were unbelievably drunk, rude, noisy and... More

Honestly, there aren't enough words to summarize our honeymoon at the Sandals Grande Antigua! We loved absolutely everything about this place, and Sandals has definitely exceeded our expectations of what an all inclusive vacation is like. The staff was the greatest I've met, the food was superb, the drinks were better each time, our room was fantastic, and the resort... More

Geraldine in the main dining room made several of our dinners over the top great. We have been to 4 Sandals, my husband tried for the best accommodations for my in-laws (one in a wheelchair)...

Sandals is well known for it's layout and beautiful landscape. I had not been to one since my last visit to the Bahamas. My journey started off by lost luggage which was a first for me, although it was business class, it made no difference lol. Sandals staff was quite helpful by allowing me a special discount at the 'Resort... More

We've been there for our wedding, and every single thing was perfect, from Check-in to check-out. Pool: Perfect Gardens: Perfect Room: Perfect Food Choice and quality: Perfect Employees: Perfect. This is the perfect place in the caribbean to chill and relax yourself, the Luxury Inclusive label is well chosen.
