My husband and I chose Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa as our honeymoon destination and we were not disappointed. The resort was beautiful, the staff always smiling and friendly and the food was fantastic. The beach is gorgeous but it was a little short - we love to stroll and there wasn't much room for us to walk on... More

My wife and I honeymooned here in August. What a fantastic experience! The sands and water are clean and beautiful. The grounds are immaculately landscaped and there are so many dining choices, pools, bars, and activities it's pretty darn hard to get bored. We had a private pool and butler service, which I highly recommend. Our butler staff of Karen,... More

We didn't want to come home! It was so relaxing. We were fortunate to have the Mediterranean One Bedroom Butler Villa Suite with Private Pool Sanctuary. Sheldon, one of our butlers, was awesome! He was so proactive and catered to our every need. We used HoneyMoons Inc as our travel agent and Kimberly went above and beyond to get help... More

Our travel agent, Escape Worldwide, recommended the Sandals Grande Antigua as we wanted a romantic holiday in the Caribbean and having not been to Antigua before didn't really know where to stay. I'm glad they did, the resort was beautiful, with a stunning beach and fun, friendly staff. The swimming pool was great and the swim up pool bar was... More

Unbelievably naff, obsequious staff, trained by Disney in insincerity but without the quality of service. Atrocious hygiene standards with birds & cats in the dining hall. Poor quality food and drink and insufficient loungers. A version of this review has been attempted but not published (simply a counter barrage of unicorns and rainbows) on no less than 4 occasions -... More

And almost flawless vacation experience. Wonderful resort, outstanding staff, excellent food, spotless and comfortable rooms. You can tell these people love what they do and that they really like their guests. The service was pretty much perfect across the board the entire week we were there. The only miscue of note is that you need a medical certificate to SCUBA... More

Everything about our stay was great. We couldn't be happier with the staff, the food, the drinks, the location, and the grounds. The room itself was clean and very nice. One day we had torrential downpours and noticed that the roof was leaking. There was also a flap of the ceiling that was falling off. Immediately we went to the... More

Sandals Grande Antigua exceeded our expectations. The service was great, and everything about the resort gave the perfect setting for a wonderful vacation. We especially like Delmore our photographer! He was very impressive. We'll be back for sure.

My husband and I just got back from our "weddingmoon" at the Sandals Grande Antigua and had an excellent experience. WEDDING Went better than I could have imagined. Everything was on time and very organized. The wedding team is amazing. They are really friendly and have this down to a science. We were completely care free the whole week as... More

My wife and I reserved a room in the Mediterranean Tower hotel at this resort for our honeymoon a few weeks ago. This was the first time I had travelled outside the continental US (aside from a couple of day trips to Canada). The location was breath-taking. Antigua is quite the tropical paradise, with crystal clear water and warm weather.... More
