Everything about our stay was fantastic! The resort was gorgeous - just like the pictures. Our room was beautiful and the staff was very accomodating. There are a lot of things to do if you want to, and a lot of places to relax if you don't. There is a wide variety of restaurants - and the food was always... More

Arguably one of our best vacations ever. Amazing people, amazing beach, great sailing, great work out areas, unbelievable food. Mediterranean village is the place to be.Virtually zero GI illness due to clean clean water and environment. Having done many a club meds, and over six visits to Punta Cana + Mexico - this would still rank as #1 place in... More

Just come back from 7 nights at Sandals in Antigua. Staff were very friendly and we were delighted that Stoosh the playmaker was still there and remembered us from last year. She was a star and made our week very enjoyable, even tried to teach us to dance to reggae! The food was fantastic at all of the restaurants, and... More

We just returned from Sandals, what a shock to leave such a paradise! The resort was all it said it was and more, I’m a picky clean/neat freak and I couldn't be happier with the way the room was presented and kept up during the entire week stay! The rain shower was the best, all the amenities the room had... More

My h usband and I just returned from a week at Sandals Grande Antigua. We have been to Sandals Grande St. Lucia and Sandals Ocho Rios and I think Antigua may be my new favorite. We arrived on a Saturday and did have to wait for about 20 minutes for our room. Not a problem, we went and grabbed some... More

We just returned from a week's stay in absolute paradise. Having stayed at other Sandals on 3 different occasions, I didn't think twice about booking this vacation. Like many others, after booking into Sandals Grande Antigua, I read the reviews. I was a bit nervous at all the negative things I read before we left. The reviews couldn't have been... More

From the moment we boarded the shuttle to the resort until we returned to the airport home we experienced the easiest 6 days we can recall. Talk about rest and relaxation! Everyone, including the resort representatives at the airport, the concierge desk (especially Matera!), the restaurant staff, and the entertainment personnel made our stay enjoyable. All you do is ask... More
