Everything was fabulous looking, well maintained and great. The food options were plentiful and everything tasted amazing! Nothing felt crowded no matter where you went. Plenty of room to spread out and have a romantic day wherever you chose.

We went to Sandals Antigua for 2 weeks last year-31/1/14 to 14/2/14. On arrival we were upgraded which we were absolutely thrilled about. From the cold hand towels and champagne on arrival to the departure 2 weeks later we had an amazing time, so much so that we are returning there in 3 weeks for another, hopefully, amazing fortnight. We... More

As soon as we arrived to Sandals Grande Antigua, we were greeted by our one of our butlers, Shaunte'Ann, with champagne. Checking in was a breeze, only taking 5 min. Shaunte'Ann brought us to the stunning honeymoon penthouse one bedroom butler sweet; it is even more beautiful than the Sandals website. I literally almost cried, the view of the ocean... More

We highly recommend this resort, there were so many positives about it , the grounds , the people, the romantic atmosphere I can go on and on. By far the best all inclusive couples resort we have ever stayed at. The room was everything the brochure said it would be, the staff went above and beyond to ensure your stay... More

I was supposed to be at Sandals for a week, because of the airlines, it ended up being five days. Five blissful days. The entire time we were there we wrote a mocking review. "The sand is too sandy, the water is too salty." I do not know what some people expect when they are on vacation, but it is... More

My husband and I went here for our honeymoon and we loved every second of it! First they greeted us with cold towels that smelled like lemon grass, then offered us champagne as we sat with someone to make dinner reservations and excursions for the week. You can tell that customer service is their number one priority. Every single emplyee... More

We stayed at Sandals Grande Antigua from 8/5-8/16 and would highly recommend it. We originally did not book a butler level room, but as the planning went on, and given that we were getting married there, we decided it would be nice to have the extra attention. I'd say it takes the vacation to the next level if you can... More

First, I'll explain what I'm basing my review on. Once a year, my husband and I leave the three kids with the grands-parents so we can spend a week relaxing and putting ourselves first, for once! We were looking for a luxurious hotel, on a beautiful beach, good food and drinks. Overall, I think Sandals Grande Antigua met our expectations,... More

This resort certainly lives up to it's name. My husband and I have wanted to go here for many years and finally went for our 20th wedding anniversary. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Mr. G. definitely has control of that resort and everything about it. We found him a couple of times cleaning up glasses on the beach... More
