After spending the year building our house and planning a wedding, we wanted to go on a trip that required very little planning and knew could be counted on by reputation to ensure a great time. Boy do I regret thinking Sandals Grande Antigua was the right place to go! After entering the country and obtaining our bags, we proceeded... More

What can I say - the resort is everyhting and more than I expected on my first trip to the Caribean. The staff were on the whole friendly and helpful. We always find that if you treat people with respect you get it back. The food was lovely and there was lots of choice, same with the drinks. The only... More

My husband and I stayed on the the Caribbean (aka total crap) side of the resort. We did not book the room. The first room we stayed in had many problems: mold, rust, stains, bad porn, noises, leaks, cheap liquor, the list goes on. The second room was cleaner, but lacked the cheap liquor one needs to stay in a... More

My review will be long because those to me are the most helpful. Arrival-The airport is small there is a quite a walk from the plane until you get in side the... More

My fiance and I had the time of our lives. The resort was amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Any inquiry we had during our stay, the staff handled in a quick and efficient manner. The restaurants at the resort were great. The restaurant that we liked most was the OK Corral. We loved the chicken wings as... More

We were really looking forward to this as it was the highlight of our 3 centre Caribbean holiday. We were on the old side of the resort, and the room had 1 window which was covered in greenery so it was always dark. However it was large and well appointed. Looking at some of the other rooms/blocks in this part... More

The service at this resort was extremely bad. Whenever we asked for anything it took so long. We waited two hours for them to pick up our bags, only to be told that they would soon arrive at our room, we eventually got fed up and carried our bags up to our room. Everytime we went to eat, it would... More

We had the most fantastic honeymoon in Antigua last September. Being the 'hurricane season' I was worried about the weather, but we ended up having a beautiful week. First, after reading many reviews of the hotel on this website, I decided to upgrade to the newer Mediterrianian side of the resort...definitely a good move. Our room, although pricey, was beautiful.... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The resort is beautiful. Easy to find a spot at beach or main pool. Food was excellent! Marios was our favorite restaurant. We went on the Ziplining tour and loved it! Definitely a must!! We were disappointed with our room. This resort is listed as a luxury resort. In my opinion... More
