This review is very overdue... We visited Sugar Ridge in November 2012 and stayed for the duration of our holiday which was 11 nights. I cannot recommend this place enough, the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are just lovely... Lots of space and v clean. Breakfast was great and each day they would provide a new 'juice of... More

This is a lovely, understated hotel with a really nice feel to it. It is set on a hill with the rooms set into the hillside, at the top of which is Carmichael's, an absolute must for a sundowner! We had a room right at the very top of the hill with panoramic views down across the harbour and out... More

If your ever in Antigua and you're looking for some of the classy amenities that you'll find in the states, then this is the place to be. I stayed here on a trip around the Caribbean and I didn't want to leave. The place was just fabulous. The room was very quaint and inviting and the restaurant on site was... More

We had a fabulous relaxing holiday at Sugar Ridge! This hotel is not on the beach but there is a jeep that goes to and from several times a day. Its only a short walk into Jolly Harbour too, if you fancy getting out and about. So back to the hotel, the rooms are lovely and kept very clean. As... More

Carleen is amazing !!! She is the best. You must see her if you come. She works in the restaurant and served us our breakfast each morning. The staff are super friendly and extremely hospitable. It's really nice. The infinity pool at the top of the hill is magnificent. You will need to take the shuttle to the beaches, which... More

We chose Sugar Ridge as we were looking for a quiet, relaxing, high-quality experience for our Silver wedding anniversary holiday. We stayed for 2 weeks on the all-inclusive option and have just returned home after our amazing experience. The staff at Sugar Ridge are the friendliest and most helpful that we have ever experienced. There are too many to mention... More

I have mixed feelings about Sugar Ridge. My family stayed in 2 rooms with plunge pools and the rooms were very nice and the rooms and pools were clean. The staff was very friendly, but there was no sense of urgency. When you need a golf cart ride to Carmichael's at the top of the hill, it doesn't arrive on... More

We have been to this hotel several times for dinner in both the two restaurants they boast. Every time we have had to complain or send something back its outrageous, we will not be eating there again thats for sure. Tough steaks on the 2 for 1 steak evening.. The complaint was met with a shrug of the shoulders! The... More

Keith M, General Manager at Sugar Ridge, responded to this review

I was very concerned to read your review which has since been discussed with both Restaurant Managers and our Executive Chef. Unfortunately we have no record of anyone refusing to pay their bill in Carmichael's and also no knowledge of your complaint at Sugar Club. Both restaurants normally enjoy an excellent reputation for food and service and I am extremely... More

So, I was coming through Antigua on my way to/from BVI on business and thought that I would like to do a quick overnight in the island to take in some sun before making my way back to Europe. As I had fond memories of Jacqui O's Restaurant on Love Beach, St. Mary's from my trip here last February, I... More
