We stayed for our Honeymoon June 9-14 2014. We recommend the older side.. It really gives you the Caribbean feel and is so private. Do not let the fact that it is older than the new side scare you away. It is worth it!!! The private room with personal pool is just perfect! Our butlers made sure we had private... More

Everything about this hotel is superior: the expansive, soft sand beach with clear, calm Caribbean ocean water; the signature pool with swim up bar; the clean, well maintained accommodations (choice of older, quainter, low level Caribbean section closer to the ocean, or modern, high rise, marbly Mediterranean section set back with great ocean views); the many restaurants with a variety...

Not worth it! St. Lucia blew this one out the water. The grounds are absolutely beautiful but the service was horrible! HORRIBLE. We went for 10 days with 36 of our wedding guest and they all agreed. We had a butler room, what a waste. I had to complain to higher up ranking to get the Butlers to answer the... More

We traveled as a couple ages 58 & 61 January 18th - 24th. We booked a Mediterranean Honeymoon Ocean view Club Level Suite thru LaSalle Country Travel (Apple vacations) flying American Airlines from Chicago to Miami then Miami to Antigua. Our package included a $375.00 Red Lane Spa credit. Antigua is 2 hours ahead of Chicago time and the exchange... More

This resort is amazing. Highly recommend beachfront property and going to Elenor's for the Lobster dinner. The Butlers are also a very nice addition. Most people would probably say this resort is expensive and direct flights there can be tricky from the US but we absolutely feel it's worth it. The beach is pristine and bright aqua the service and... More

This was my second stay at a Sandals property. It was great! Staff was exceptional, friendly & did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The beach was awesome-perfect sand! Rooms were clean & well stocked. There are so many types of rooms available, I'm sure to suit every travellers needs. Latoya at the small pool bar was a sweetheart!... More

I thought this place was spectacular! We stayed on the Mediterranean side and it was beautiful. The staff was very helpful and friendly. There were several Canadian radio stations broadcasting for the week. Yes, there were large tents on the property, but it was very quiet the whole time during the shows. The pool was large and quiet this week.... More

If it says dress code applies that is what I expect. Not swim shorts, tees hits and flip flops on new years eve. I spoke to the manager Mr Gee only to be told my guests can wear what they like when they like. Why bother to say in the glossy catalogue or in a daily sheet if it's rubbish.... More

My husband and I recently spent our belated honeymoon at this resort. We booked a club level suite without the butler service to save a little money. We still spent a pretty penny. While the resort and area were beautiful and service was great there were things that really made the trip less enjoyable and we were more than ready... More
