Our first time ever to Sandals Grande Antigua for our destination wedding! Transportation: When you land at the airport there are "yellow shirt men & women" who will attempt to grab your luggage at the belt and take it to the Sandals booth. They do expect payment (and yes they take American dollars) They will be persistent with trying to... More

The hotel and beach are beautiful with good restaurants and facilities. Huge resort so not that intimate with maintenance going on. This wasn't the only downside, some of the American guests were a disgrace. They were there for a short period of time, just a few days but did not respect other guests. Many were unbelievably drunk, rude, noisy and... More

Honestly, there aren't enough words to summarize our honeymoon at the Sandals Grande Antigua! We loved absolutely everything about this place, and Sandals has definitely exceeded our expectations of what an all inclusive vacation is like. The staff was the greatest I've met, the food was superb, the drinks were better each time, our room was fantastic, and the resort... More

Our second time to this Sandals and this was again exceptional. The food has gotten even better and the staff is available, friendly and helpful. Geraldine in the main dining room made several of our dinners over the top great. We have been to 4 Sandals, my husband tried for the best accommodations for my in-laws (one in a wheelchair)...

We came to Sandals May 1 to May 13 for our Honeymoon. It was overall amazing. We booked threw Susan Peavey Travel In Marshfield Ma. I highly recommend them if anyone needs someone to assist you. Red Lane Spa- I had the Pineapple Scrub and a 90 minute rain drop massage. They both were out of this world. Tess was... More

Sandals is well known for it's layout and beautiful landscape. I had not been to one since my last visit to the Bahamas. My journey started off by lost luggage which was a first for me, although it was business class, it made no difference lol. Sandals staff was quite helpful by allowing me a special discount at the 'Resort... More

We've been there for our wedding, and every single thing was perfect, from Check-in to check-out. Pool: Perfect Gardens: Perfect Room: Perfect Food Choice and quality: Perfect Employees: Perfect. This is the perfect place in the caribbean to chill and relax yourself, the Luxury Inclusive label is well chosen.

Having stayed at Sandals before I knew what to expect. The Sandals Grande Antigua ticked all the boxes. The choice of restaurants were excellent, the food fabulous, the staff polite and helpful, the cocktails always right, the rooms had all the amenities one expects and more ... and I do love the Sandals beds for a good night sleep. The... More

The Grande Antigua was my second Sandals vacation and I loved our first experience at the Emerald Bay Bahamas. I am sad to say Antigua will be my last Sandals vacation. Let’s start with what was good. The WiFi was the best I have ever experienced out of the country. The beach is beautiful. The grounds and gardens are very... More

Everything about this holiday was perfect. Hotel, food and staff couldn't have been any better. We have stayed at some very nice 5* hotels but this surpassed them all. We celebrated our Silver Wedding here and the staff made sure it was a holiday to remember. Bottle of champagne, rose petals, Anniversary cards and a photographer all helped in making... More
