My husband and I celebrated my birthday at Sandals Grande Antigua, for 4 nights, end of October. I was reluctant, all the negative posts, but decided to forego them. We had an absolute fabulous trip. The property is exceptionally well maintained. They are continually upgrading and renovating rooms. The restaurants were super! The beach well patrolled, and a mere "No... More

Sonja Herzberg = Guest services Manager is extremely efficient and helpful as are all of the other staff - but particular mention must go to Katherine(chef), Simo & Violet from the Cricketers, Egress (you cannot mistake that laugh) and Leslie - we feel as if we have made some new friends - and we'll be back.

Well, where do I start? Arrival: We were greeted with a glass of champagne ( we were impresses) but then left for over half an hour while they checked everyone else in, they happily took our Credit card and then just left us. I did the online check in and advised them it was our honeymoon but no one cared.... More

Traveled to Sandals Antigua near the end of October. We stayed on the Med Side and our accommodations were great! The property grounds are beautiful and impeccably maintained - they were working on the flowers and pathways every single day. The staff were all extremely friendly, we were always greeted with a hi and smile. Food for the most part... More

If you have read bad reviews about this place ... don't believe them. This place was by far most one of the best places I've traveled to. We stayed in the Caribbean side and our room was very nice and clean. All the restaurants are highly recommended, everything we had was so delicious and we are both very picky eaters.... More

We just back from our honeymoon at Sandals Antigua Grande. The resort is absolutely beautiful, lots of places for great pics. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are alot of options at the restaurants and the food is good. There are several pools on the grounds so you can choose from those that are activity-filled or ones that... More

We have traveled to several other Sandals in the past few years so I was looking forward to vacationing in Antigua and I thought I knew what to expect. I had read the negative reviews on this sight but just dismissed them. Maybe my expectations were too high. We were in St. Lucia last year and it was great from... More

This was our first trip to a Sandals Resort. We found the service to be excellent, especially Chef Katherine & Executive Chef Amit. They understood our food allergies and provided us with many options and great meals. Our room was very nice and located on the Mediterranean side of the resort. We are not typically resort types, however Sandals provided... More

I booked my trip to Sandals Antigua in August 2010 for Dec 2010. Due to an unpredicatable medical occurance in my life I had to cancel my trip. They charged me $400 to cancel!!! My entire trip was $1200. I argued with the manager that this was a medical reason that I was cancelling for not just some whim. She... More

We your stayed with another couple for 9 nights in early July. Neither one of us were getting married or on our honeymoon. My husband and I have been together for 18 years, but our friends were celebrating their delayed honeymoon. Let me first say, beware of the bride-zillias! If you are there getting married, congrads! But let me remind... More
