What a fantastic hotel, staff are very friendly and happy. The food and drinks are excellent. Room very clean and the fridge is restocked every day. There are numerous restaurants to choose from each day. My favourite is the bay side as it over looks the beautiful beach.

We just returned from an 11 night stay at the Sandals Grande Antigua and our only issue is that it wasn't long enough! We had a great flight with Virgin, the transfer was quick and smooth. The drive is around 15 minutes and we had a great driver who informed us about the various buildings/universities and other monumental places. We... More

We stayed at the Sandals Grande Antigua from 8/21 - 8/24. We booked through a travel agent, Travel Tom and he did a great job making it an easy booking for us. He has first hand knowledge of the property and he even knew the GM, Mr. Guarav who we were able to meet. The resort itself was beautiful. We... More

Once getting off the plane onto the tarmac we stood in a line to get through customs and get our luggage. We knew to keep our hands on our luggage at all times to not let any locals try and help us to a taxi. We then located the Sandals sign and stood in a line there. After waiting about... More

We just returned from a week long trip to Sandals. I've been to many all inclusive resorts, and this was by far the worst experience I've had. We arrived at the airport, went through immigration, grabbed our bags, and went to the Sandals desk with relative ease. We waited approximately 10 minutes and was whisked off to the resort. It...
