I was at this resort over a year ago but keep reading reviews. Looks that is no a big change since my visit You know that this location is stunnig and resort very tired, so don't want to repeat it all over again.
In my opionion is some myths about this place. I used to travel to many other islands before Antiqa and can do a honest comparison. The myth number one is a friendly stuff. I did not find them so friendly but on many occasions- kind of unprofessional. I was really surprised that bartenders can be so gloomy and untrained despite being well tiped.
I'd got a good, renovated room because I knew what room number I want to be booked in ( thanks to trip advisor reviews) The lobby's clerk said that this room is not available but after my " don't give up attitude" she changed her mind and I got a key. No further explanation or apology.
Maybe food and entertainment is getting better. During my vist there it was extremly borring.
Overall, if you want to relax and see this beatiful island you can take a chance pick this resort. If you have a little more money and prefer to get better service - do your homework and find a different place.
