We had a wonderful time the 2 weeks we stayed at this resort. At first we were unable to be upgraded as promised being a Sandals Select member. The resort was running at 100% capacity. Four days into our stay we were moved from our "Tired looking" good size room in the Caribbean side to a fantastic room in the... More

This was our second Sandals experience. Our first stay was at Montego Bay in Jamaica. We were thrilled with our room in the Mediterranian Village. The bed was sooo comfortable. We enjoyed the restaurants and the main pool was wonderful. The only complaint is that customer service could have been a bit better. While the majority of the Sandals staff... More

We just got back from Sandals Antigua on 4/19. We were very worried from reading all of the terrible reviews, don't be. We were there for seven days and had a great time. I would suggest making dinner reservations at least two days before you arrive. Thanks to previous posters, we realized that Sandals Antigua has a flawed reservation system.... More

This review will be written with only honesty. The resort as a whole is a place that I do recommend. My wife and I both enjoyed the experience except a couple of things I will get into. ` Rooms: We were upgraded from Topaz Suite, which was great, to pent house one bedroom which was spetacular.

We were at Sandals 4/10/08-4/17/08 for our WeddingMoon - married on Saturday 4/12. Everything was perfect! We found most of the staff very friendly and helpful, the food at certain restaurants was good, other restaurants - not as good. The Monday night Beach BBQ served the best food of the week!! Several different salads, vegetables, there was a carving station,... More

What a great disappoint this hotel was! The accommodation is very tired and in need of renovation. We stayed at Sandals St. Lucian Grande is 2004 and could not beleive the difference! Even though we paid extra for a Grande Concierge room it was not a patch on the accommodation in St Lucia. We also found that Sandals appear to... More

The Sandals Resort was great and we were taken care of from the moment we arrived. All the staff was friendly and made sure everything was okay. The food and entertainment was good.The grounds were well taken care of. There was plenty of things to do. I enjoyed being there.

Just returned from my second trip to Sandals Antigua and had a blast! My wife and I went last July for our Honeymoon and were supposed to stay in the new Med. Village. When we arrived it was not yet completed so we were put up in the older section. We were compensated for our troubles with a free return... More

We just returned from the new Sandals Grande Antigua. We stayed in the new addition called Mediterranean Village in the Penthouse One Bedroom Oceanview Suite. The view was amazing. We could see the entire beautiful resort, the clear blue water for miles, the tops of the swaying palm trees, gorgeous sunsets and more. We even saw a rainbow settling over... More
