Sandals Grande Antigua is the perfect place if you are looking for total relaxation complimented with a great selection of restaurants ( 7 in total ). You can have a typical Carribean dinner or maybe Sushi takes your fancy. You will never get bored with the choices available. We particularly enjoyed Barefoot on the Beach with the most wonderfull lobster.... More

Prior to the trip we were given access to our butlers' website to specify our preferences in food, drink, tours, spa, watersports & any other special requests. Arriving in... More

Beautiful spot, excellent service, great food, best beach. All in all one of the best vacations we've had and will definitely go back. Only one concern (not complaint) was our room. They are currently renovating the Carribean Grove however had not got to the block we were in. We were told it was a 'luxury' room but fell a bit... More

My wife and I have traveled to many all inclusives in the Caribbean and Mexico, and after reading the reviews on this site, I was a bit hesitant about Sandals Grande Antigua as I had booked it as a surprise for my wife. We were there from November 5 - 12, 2009, and all I can say is don't believe... More

My husband and I enjoyed our first trip to Antigua, tremendously. Our choice to stay at Sandals, once again, proved to be a good decision. We stayed in a Rondoaval Room right on the ocean. We had butler service, which only enhanced things. He made all of our reservations, thereby eliminating the stress of waiting to get in the restaurants.... More

We were assured at checkin that the remainder of our party would be moved over within 36 hours - sadly dispite numerous visits to reception this never happened... More

Visited resort from November 6 through 13. Pleased to be upgraded from a Venetian Suite to a Monte Carlo suite, which I believe are the same, except the MC was on a higher floor which gives a better view of large pool and bay. Samantha The room was beautiful, but somewhat cramped due to the size of the furniture. Housekeeping... More
