I normally take great pride in writing my reviews and give honest and fair feedback. We had the misfortune being put up in this 'hotel' when our flight home was delayed. To call this a hotel is a push - it is a death trap and feel like it is stuck in the 60s. The facilities are rusting and old,... More

Where do I start. Was very disappointed with the conditions of this hotel. Issue #1. Upon entering, the entrance looked deserted, but the sight of the beach was breathtaking. The outside of building was run-down and very dirty. #2, the lobby was empty for the season, which was kind of strange. I must say the front desk staff was very... More

So, I had to layover in Antigua for one part of my trip to St. Kitts and so with little research I booked the Grand Royal on expedia. The hotel is a little distance from the airport but I didn't mind as I got to see some really cool spots around the island. When I got the hotel you could... More

We recently returned from ten days in Antigua where we got married and honeymooned. Deep Bay, the beach on which The Grand Royal Antiguan Beach Resort is located, is absolutely wonderful, and was one of our favorite places to visit during our stay. If you like a sheltered, calm beach with turquoise water this is the place. Great for swimming,... More

Was travellibg between islands and encountered challenges getting home (on a famed airline). I thought...here we go...im going to get holes up in a seedy hotel. To my complete surprised, i was warmly welcomed by friendly staff(10pm). Decent food and a room built for relaxation. Based on that experience, i would definately make a concious choice to visit the Grand... More

The Resort was all inclusive but the staff went out of their way to make our stay a great one. The staff were exemplary the head of the bar was working on Christmas day which is their busiest time for 18 hours and the girl that looked after tours made an effort to get me a tour of the local...

I spent a couple of nights at The Grand Royal Antiguan on a layover earlier this month and having read the reviews prior, I was pleasantly surprised! I stayed in a Lagoon View room which was large and clean and had all the amenities you would expect from a 3 star property. The linen was fresh and the cable TV... More

We were put up at this hotel for 1 night as our flight to St Maarten was cancelled after a 12 hour wait at the airport. The hotel reminds me of the film "The Shinning". There are more staff than guests and the rooms are dated, dirty and extremely damp. Thank god we were only there for 1 night and... More

If you are at anchor in Deep Bay the choice of venue is to either eat on board or eat at The Royal Antiguan. The gate to the Hotel is locked in the evenings , so call ahead . This Hotel is vast and deserted , staff are very friendly. We were one of two tables eating in the large... More

I have been going to the Grand Royal Antiguan for 20 years. Back in the beginning it was fantastic with disco entertainment jet bikes etc and very very busy. Unfortunately the ownership changed about 11 years ago. Since then it has been neglected. But!!!! This hotel is amazing in so many ways still. The staff are lovely and always wanting... More
