This was my second stay at a Sandals property. It was great! Staff was exceptional, friendly & did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The beach was awesome-perfect sand! Rooms were clean & well stocked. There are so many types of rooms available, I'm sure to suit every travellers needs. Latoya at the small pool bar was a sweetheart!... More

I thought this place was spectacular! We stayed on the Mediterranean side and it was beautiful. The staff was very helpful and friendly. There were several Canadian radio stations broadcasting for the week. Yes, there were large tents on the property, but it was very quiet the whole time during the shows. The pool was large and quiet this week.... More

If it says dress code applies that is what I expect. Not swim shorts, tees hits and flip flops on new years eve. I spoke to the manager Mr Gee only to be told my guests can wear what they like when they like. Why bother to say in the glossy catalogue or in a daily sheet if it's rubbish.... More

My husband and I recently spent our belated honeymoon at this resort. We booked a club level suite without the butler service to save a little money. We still spent a pretty penny. While the resort and area were beautiful and service was great there were things that really made the trip less enjoyable and we were more than ready... More

I chose this location to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday as a surprise. Although, it did not include everything per the advertisement, we could not have been treated better. The staff was a pleasure, food excellent, and the property was paradise. We have stayed at other all inclusive resorts, and were not accustomed to paying extra for cabana's or room... More

Stayed in a Mediterranean pool villa with butler. Found the food in all the restaurants to be very good for an all inclusive, better than expected. Highly recommend the butler service if only to reserve chairs on the beach which can become very busy. Never sat around the pool as we prefer the beach but on the odd occasion you... More

Each day was fantastic. Service was top notch in all areas except at the main bar near the courtyard. Some but not all of the staff members behind that bar were rude at various times. The bar does have operating hours and the staff must be annoyed by guests who demand bar drinks outside those hours but rolling eyes should... More

This was our fourth visit to the Sandals/Beaches family and narrowly edges out Sandals La Toc (St. Lucia) as our favorite. We started in the beachside rondoval with butler and was later upgraded to the one bedroom with plunge pool/hot tub- their highest level of room- for our 19th anniversary. We could not have been happier with our accommodations! The... More

We visited Antiqua last week (1/10-18/15). We ran off to get married. Neither of us had been to Antiqua, so that was the main reason we choose it. The weather at the time was perfect. Cool in the evening and hot during the day. We stayed on the Mediterranean side, which we heard was A LOT nicer than the Caribbean... More
