This was a free week for us, after clocking up 70 nights at Sandals resorts. DINING. We like Sandals because of the excellent food and were not disappointed. At Mario's, the Italian restaurant, we had a splendid bistecca with a mushroom sauce, one of the best dishes we have eaten at a Sandals. We attempted to repeat the experience two... More

The beaches and the water are like the people of Antigua, just beautiful. The restaurants with it's service and food still make my mouth water today. This resort's layout with it's walkways and gardens are so unbelievable and the nights are so peaceful. The sounds of the waves from the sea and the flames from torches can have you setting... More

Parfleche said many things about this Sandals that I agree with, particularly about the complaints that we had read before we went. There is no friendlier staff than at this place, I would say anyone who has complained about staff is just a whiner. These are nice people who are trained to go above and beyond whenever they can to... More

This was our 2nd Sandals experience as a couple (we tried St. Lucia last year and loved it), and my 3rd time, and we enjoyed ourselves. There are definitely some positives and negatives, but we'll start with the good stuff: - First and foremost, the staff was terrific. Everyone was so friendly, and went out of their way to check...

This was our third trip to the Caribbean and our second time at Sandals, and we weren't disappointed. I'll run through the review by area as I did for my review of Sandals Halcyon in St Lucia in 2013. For our 10 night/11 day stay we were located in the Mediterranean Village on the 3rd floor and had Concierge service... More

Great food and service. Very clean. Would definitely recommend spending more and staying in the newer building. Excellent view of the sunset from our balcony and quiet. Room was spacious. Favorite sandals so far but looking forward to visiting Grenada soon.

We took lots of photos at this Sandals, and upon returning home compared them to the photos on the Sandals web site. I did this because when we were onsite we felt that something didn't quite feel right. But let me be clear: the resort is beautiful and very well maintained. The staff is very friendly and very helpful at... More

A world class and really great resort, with an absolutely great and friendly staff. With 7 different restaurants, from Mexican to Italian and Caribbean to Japanese. great pools areas in different pools around the Resort. Very luxurious rooms and quiet areas.

Just returned from a great week at Sandals in Antigua. We frequently travel internationally and I always research our lodging carefully on TripAdvisor before booking. Most of the folks who reviewed the place were very positive but there were a few reviews that concerned us at first. Fortunately the latter group did not dissuade us from visiting Sandals. My tip...
