I stayed at this resort while overnighting in Antigua. I wasn't sure what to expect by the reviews. This hotel is a good distance from the main town / airport. but after a 15-20 taxi ride we arrived at the hotel. The property is vast and you can tell is was a Grand hotel in its day. Its now rather... More

This by far had to be the worst "resort" I've ever booked. Even though there were over 800 rooms, I counted a total of 13 guest in the ENTIRE resort. The staff was rude and disgruntled. The "all-Inclusive" amenities is misleading. The food is ala-carte but depends mostly on availability. Most times the selection was limited to hamburgers and fries.... More

Please do not attempt to book a holiday at this hotel We arrived 26/3/15 - I had booked on booking.com & it was not particularly cheap. Upon arrival, there was a barrier & gate attendant but on the drive up to the hotel, the tennis courts were grown over & broken exterior netting, which obviously created a v bad 1st... More

On a hike to Fort Barrington last week, we walked through the grounds and main building of this hotel. What a mess. Tennis courts mouldy/heaving, unused for years, fences collapsed, parched grounds, cracked pavements, no people. Our very knowledgeable guide explained this hotel has changed hands several times - and now…it is falling apart. Inside, the large lobby area was... More

My team of youth leaders and members stay for three (3) days at this Hotel and the experience was marvelous! the ambiance as you enter is so welcoming! It is a majestic place filled with elegance, sophistry and definitely leaves you with an: "I must come again" feeling. the staff was great, breakfast, lunch and dinner were always sumptuous affairs...almost...

Odd hotel where the customers are a hindrance, checking in took 40 minutes so we went to the adjacent bar only to wait another 10 mins not because it was busy but untrained staff who seem to idolise their phones rather than customs seem to run the place for their own benefit. During I ugly incidence 1 of the residence... More

I can honestly say that this is the worst hotel that I have ever stayed in. It has obviously once been nice but is now a crumbling shambles of its former self, desperately in need of knockig down. It was understandably almost empty as there is nothing there at all apart from one bar staffed by a misurabe woman who... More

Anchored off the beach and dinghied ashore. Hotel appeared empty and abandoned... however there were staff setting tables in restaurant. Apparently it was open. Grounds overgrown, broken windows and abandoned buildings. A little bizzare.
