My husband and I stayed here for a week in late March 2014. Our vacation was amazing! Let me start out with the airport and checkin. I was nervous about the Antigua airport because I read so many reviews about how horrible and slow it can be. We must have really lucked out....our plane landed 10 mins early and about... More

We arrived for a week and everything was good. The weather cooperated, concierge service was great and quick and our room was fine. My only suggestion for the staff is that it would be nice to have music playing at the larger pool during the day. It was too quiet. As far as the friendliness of the staff, for the... More

We stayed from 8th-16th April in the Caribbean side, which I would recommend. The grounds and accommodation are first-class and everything is spotless. What lets this resort down is the food service and customer service. Having stayed at various other 5 star hotels in the Caribbean the food service is at best a 2.5 out of 5. In the main... More

My husband and I stayed here in mid March 2014 and booked a Sunset Bluff Honeymoon Luxury Club Level Room. We weren't planning on booking the Club Level room, but there was a special running when we booked where the points and the associated discount offset the increased cost. The only Club Level amenities we used were the wifi (the... More
