After paying close to $500 US for a return ticket Barbados /San Juan Puerto Rico, our flight out of Barbados was delayed, and so on arrival to Antigua, which was the connection to San Juan, we were advised that the flight had already left, and so we would have to clear immigration, and stay in Antigua for the night.

I stayed at the Grand Royal for my honeymoon for two nights and I absolutely had a wonderful time! The room does have a 1970's feel to it which for me was great because it gave me a cozy feeling. The veiw was amazing as I was able to see the entire lagoon, beach and town. Especially at night with... More

I had to stay here because my original Liat flight was discontinued and they never told me which in turn caused me to have to stay in Antigua from a delayed flight in Barbados. We arrived at the hotel around 11pm. The drive is about thirty minutes from the airport. Upon arrival the girl at the desk was great but... More

If you are looking for a quiet, isolated, and beautiful beach please visit here. The hotel could use some work but the staff was extremely pleasant towards me and my daughter. The beach is private and makes for a nice romantic get away. It is extremely peaceful and relaxing after running all around the island doing everything imaginable. This hotel... More

We had to spend 2 nights there due to continously cancelation of Liat flights. The place is a time machine getting you back to 70s . Awful service and the rooms are horrible. Food terrible as we were in a full board plan provided from Liat apparently. The first night we entered there were 25 of us all coming from... More

I stayed one night here after my LIAT flight was cancelled and all I can say is: MOSQUITOES! MOSQUITOES everywhere. I don't know if it's low/dead season for the hotel, but our flight companions were the only ones staying there. And they don't seem to be maintaining the place. The dining area is specially full of mosquitoes, so beware.

If you're looking for a Caribbean vacation experience Grand Royal is not what you're looking for. I stayed here for a work conference. Which means that all of my expenses were covered. However, I would never stay here on my own merit for any reason; especially not vacation. It's deserted. The food is not great; selection is poor. The rooms... More
