Couple from Kent in England. We have just spent xmas and new year at sandal;s antigua, and I have to say it was the best holiday we have ever had, we had booked the honeymoon ocean view suite with the butler service, yet when we arrived we were upgraded to the penthouse suite on the med side. The suite was... More

We stayed at the Sandals Grand Antigua over christmas and new year and had a fantastic time. We stayed at the Mediterranean side in a beautiful room, equipt with everything. The room was always spotless and the bar well stocked. I want to thank Marie-Louise, one of the super bar staff on the Caribbean side. We arrived after a delay... More

My husband and I have just returned from Sandals Grande Antigua. We have travelled to several of their locations and this is one of our favourites. We stayed in the Carribean side which we found more secluded and personal. The new Mediterrian side is beautiful but not as intimate as the Carribean side. I have nothing but good things to... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 1 year anniversary while staying at Sandals Antigua Dec. 20 - 27. This was our first stay at a Sandals. We decided to stay at Couples Swept Away in Jamaica in January 2008 because of all the reviews we read about the Sandals resorts. After staying at this Sandals, we're very happy with... More

Don't believe all those naysayers. The property is beautiful especially the Caribeean side with its lush garden feel, intimate walkways and it looks great at night. All pictures you've seen are as the resort really is. The Med village is very hotel like in its outside look and to some extent doesn't really fit in. Don't get me wrong it... More

Totally awesome place. Beautiful rooms and grounds. Friendly and helpful hotel staff and delicious food. The first time we've ever stayed at an all inclusive hotel and now the bar is set high. Looking forward to staying at Sandals in St Lucia for our next carribean vacation.

My wife and I spent several days at Sandals Antigua and we had a wonderful time. This was our second Sandals resort, having spent December 2007 at Sandals Bahamas. The staff was very friendly and accommodating always trying to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The food was very good and there was plenty of it at the buffet,... More

My husband and I stayed at Sandals for 9 nights and 10 days. The overall experience was fun and of course beautiful but the service was horrible. First, we get to our room when we arrived and the air conditioner must have been leaking for who knows how long because there was a trail of green mold on the wall... More

As a Platinum member of Sandals I was really looking forward to trying the Island of Antigua and the usual Sandals experience. The arrival, greeting, reception and check in were up to the usual Sandals standard with the room in the Mediteranean Village exceeded all expectations. The rooms were larger, better laid out and better equipped (40"plus flat screen TV)... More

My husband and I stayed at the resort Dec 14-21 and were worried ahead of time after reading negative reviews on the site. Boy did we worry for nothing!
