Granted, it probably has seen better days but it is by no means a dump. The room I stayed in was excellent. Get a sea view! It was great waking up to that. I enjoyed the food there, though I ate out most of the times simply because I like to experience the food culture of islands I travel to.... More

I have no doubt that anyone who sees this hotel always come away with the same opinion: What a fabulous location, what a waste of a business opportunity. The good: Fabulous location, wonderful beach, great ocean views, bargain price, signs of renovation taking place, Most of the workout equipment actually works. The British High Commission has meetings here (is that... More

Like Tina J we were stranded by Liat airlines. Both our flights with them were many hours late, the second meant we missed our connection to London and so stayed here. The room was dirty and the loo didn't flush, so we had to move to another even dirtier room. But lunch on the beach was beautiful, and well prepared.... More

I have to emphasise this is the WORST hotel I have ever been to and I have been to many. I was at the Royal Antiguan with my husband not by choice but by curtesy of Liat incompetence. After 6 hrs at the airport, we left Dominica, but had missed our flight to London and worst still had to stay... More

The good points, when you are in the resort it seems pretty safe and secure. Nice large lobby and bar area. The room was very nice, I only had a mountain facing one with no balcony but it had lots of large windows letting in lots of natural light, large room with lots of floor area even with a large...

Stayed at this hotel/resort for three nights while on a work trip. The area and location of hotel is beautiful; large cove and a small beach area with all amenities available. The excellent part is the condition of the rooms, bathrooms which were always clean and which the housekeepers took time out to do well. The service at the Dining... More

I have seriously never ever in my life come upon a more depressing haunted feeling hotel, not sure you can call it a hotel looks more like a prison. We were sailing in the area and decided to pop in and take a look at this hideous hotel that ruined our view from our boat. Words cannot say how horrid... More

This place is wonderfully awful - it's almost worth saying here just to tell your friends the story. Anyway, like every sane person who has stayed here post 1985, we were put up by our airline when our flight was cancelled. The hotel lobby actually looked ok, and the gentleman at the front desk was quite nice. There were two... More

I usually don't write reviews, but the Grand Royal Antiguan deserves my comments. This hotel is a hidden gem. My last minute one week vacation plans during peak season left my wife and I with few affordable, non 'all inclusive' choices. After booking, I noticed many terrible reviews but was willing to give it a shot. Yes, the hotel has... More

As many of the other reviewers pointed out this is where stranded air travelers are sent when their flights are canceled. The reason they are sent here is it is EMPTY as it is very run down and no one would stay here regularly. Well, there were maybe 5 guests there. Even if it were nice who wants to stay... More
