The trip was very nice. We stayed in the Honeymoon Oceanview Suite on the Mediterranean side. The room came with butler service which made our trip much more special and enjoyable. We would definitely get the butler service again.

We have stayed at Sandals resorts in Jamaica and St Lucia and Antigua is certainly our favourite, we had a perfect relaxing holiday in a beautiful resort. We stayed in a concierge suite on the mediterranean side of the resort, this side is only 3 years old, in immaculate condition with excellent accomodation. Our room was furnished in a smart... More

Let me begin this by saying my husband and I booked this trip two weeks before we left. We are used to staying at Ritz Carlton hotels/resorts and the Four Seasons. We live in NYC and are accustomed to great food and great service. We were a bit weary about Sandals since we had never stayed at an all inclusive... More

DATE OF TRAVEL: DECEMBER 11 - 18, 2010 As I write this review, my goal is simple. It's to provide future travelers to the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort with a highly reliable and trustworthy analysis of what I would expect you to experience during your stay. I'll try to cover as much as I can. ARRIVAL AND TRANSFER TO RESORT... More

Paradise on earth. This location has no flaws. Okay - it rained most of one day and I liked that the least. Fabulous weather, beautiful scenery, clear and warm water. Not crowded like other resorts closer to the USA. No reason to leave the resort. I've been to several Caribbean resorts which are all good, but Grande Antigua beats them... More

Just got back from an eight day stay where we celebrated our weddingmoon. Our wedding went smoothly and was a lot classier than I had expected. We were very impressed with the wedding setup, especially the photographer. If you are getting pictures taken for your wedding or beach shoot request Sokoto George…he is the best photographer and takes very creative... More

We arrived at sandals on November the 10th to champagne and to be told we were going to be upgraded to "The Honeymoon Suite" if that was ok? Can't tell you what our original room would have been like but fellow guests were more than pleased with the rooms in the Caribbean section of the complex. We had a very... More

I had my wedding at the Sandals Grande Antigua. The staff were so awesome. They attended to all my needs and even made suggestions for things I may have forgotten. The wedding coordinator was excellent. She made sure my day was wonderful. The food was great and you had many choices. There were many activities on the grounds as well... More

This place is brilliant. Far better than I expected. The service is fantastic, but not too stiff, while the venue itself is so large it never feels crowded. 9 restaurants to choose from, blue sea, white sandy beach, endless cocktails, sunshine and relaxation. We went all inclusive, and that meant even the mini-bar, which was restocked every day with rum,... More
