We stayed in February 2015, in the Sunset Bluff building which is located behind a quiet pool. Check in was hassle free and we were whisked away to the Club lounge and given a glass of sparkling wine. Our luggage was already in the room which was great. The room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was a little tired... More

Recently returned from Sandals Grande Antigua. Stayed in Mediterranean honeymoon ocean view room. Room was very nice and clean. From check in to departure concierge staff met our every request and need. Enjoyed the great variety at all the restaurants. Especially loved the extra friendly, Roselyn that prepared the best omelets every day at Marios, and shared a hug goodbye... More

We've revisited Sandals Antigua more than 10 times. Great beach, gourmet dining in a nice variety, a staff that smile and takes care of you with white gloves constantly. Nothing like being on the beach, reading your Kindle in your little cabana, and having staff come by to ask what you'd like to drink, and can they get you a... More

We visited in May 2014. We stayed on the basic level on the Caribbean side, and the room was very comfortable and close to everything. However, as nice as it was, I really think you pay for the name because in all honesty I have had holidays that were just as good in other five star hotels elsewhere, paying half... More

Having stayed at several Sandals properties this was our least favorite. The Caribbean side was older and had not been updated or maintained very well. Our shower was broken for 2 days and we had to walk to the other side of the property and shower at the Red Lane Spa. Our windows would not close all the way allowing... More

We had a fabulous time at Sandals Grande Antigua. This was our third Sandals vacation. Service was 5 star from management, concierge, servers, bartenders and housekeeping to the grounds keepers who kept the resort looking amazing. Unfortunately hurricane Gonzalo hit Antigua during our stay. However, the resort is prepared for such devastating weather and we were amazed how well the... More

Where do I begin - I think it was the Worst Trip Ever !!! We were traveling with 2 other couples & were supposed to be together, however we were spread out initially over 3 floors. Our room the 1st night was on the 4th floor & we were moved the next day to the 6th floor which meant we... More

We are Sandals Select guests. We originally booked a concierge oceanfront room and received an upgrade at check-in to a villa suite. The staff at this resort went out of their way to make your stay very enjoyable. We spoke with the managers of the various restaurants who were all very nice and friendly - especially the managers from the... More

Our trip started off amazing and continued the entire time.From first meeting Leon the concierge to the final parting. As a group we were upgraded off of the hop to Sunset Bluffs which was great. The rooms were large and spacious, Bar fridge was stocked with something for everyone. If you want more beer in the fridge leave a note,... More

Excellent room, great location. Wonderful views. It is extremely hard to find a chair by the pool or the beach unless you got up early to put a towel out and there are lots of butlers that put towels out for their rooms but to be honest this is the same the world over. We didn't have any issues with... More
