My husband and I stayed at the Sandals in Antigua and had the best time!! The service is excellent and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. The restaurants are amazing! The sushi and hibatchi are to die for! They have a sushi bar where they make the sushi in front of you. We thought the food was outstanding! The rooms... More

We went to Sandal Antigua over New Years 2013. It was our first Sandals experience. We look for all inclusive resorts with no kids policy We enjoyed it so much we are trying Sandals Royal Bahamian next week. And so I have decided to do my long overdue review. We took an air conditioned shuttle bus with 2 other couples... More

Stayed 7 nights in Caribbean Section. Very tropical and quiet. We had a walk out pool side room and loved it. Bathrooms are nice although water pressure is a bit weak. We felt the food was good - not great - and the service is some times slow and lackadaisical. But overall very friendly. The beach is absolutely perfect and... More

My Wife and I stayed here from May 17th - May 24th. The only negative is that we didn't book extra days. We both had the best time of our lives. Airport - The airport is small but we got through customs very quickly. The resort is only a short 15 min ride and our driver pointed out land marks... More

This was a fantastic vacation for our group. We stayed in the Caribbean Village which was perfect. Rooms were secluded but near pool, beach, bars, and restaurants. There are several restaurants, all with a variety of food. We did not have a bad experience at any of the restaurants. The service is a little slower than in the US, but... More

My husband and I chose Sandals Grande Antigua for our honeymoon this July, we had a lovely time and would like to share our experiences for people considering holidaying here so this is our opinion- Hotel - Lovely, decorated and furnished to a high standard and laid out well. Only downside would be more areas could be air conditioned. Staff... More

Second trip to Sandals Grande Antigua, celebrated 26th anniversary. Last year service seemed better. A couple of employees (servers, hostesses) were not the friendliest. Other than that, our room, Caribbean Deluxe, was great, as was the daily care. The pools & swim up bars were wonderful. Most of the restaurants were great, with wonderful service & great food: Eleanor's (lobster,... More

Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa was fantastic. I spent the day celebrating my best friends birthday with her daughter Dionne . We started the day with a real Caribbean breakfast which was fantastic except for a few flies (this should not be seen in any eatery). After b/fast we relaxed in a cabana by the pool and was pampered... More

We were booked months in advance with Grand Pineapple only to find out when arriving at airport that we were "upgraded to Sandals". At first we were disappointed but once we arrived at Sandals that all changed. The resort was wonderful. I can't say enough about the staff! The grounds were so beautiful. The grounds workers deserve a lot of... More

Its a nice resort but no where near the 5 star they claim it to be! When walking through the Caribbean side it looks old and dated though some people we spoke with liked it. We stayed on the Mediterranean side which was much newer and the appearances are that of a 5 star resort. It was nicely manicured and... More
