Antigua Village is a rare commodity and obviously isn't everyone's cup of tea as it were. It isn't a hotel there is no bar or restaurant it is a timeshare/condominium with a range of accommodation types from Suites to Studios all self contained. Over the years we have stayed in a number of different units and it is fair to say some have been better maintained and equipped than others. It is also fair to say that if you have a problem at all the staff will sort it for you and if it can't be sorted as happened with us on one occasion they will transfer you to another unit cannot fault the staff here they are very good indeed from the gardeners right up to the top they are friendly and helpful and keen to ensure your vacation goes smoothly and as enjoyable as possible.
This year we stayed for 4 weeks in February in unit 38A a ground level studio in the garden area. It is nice and quiet around there the views of the Caribbean albeit restricted and the soft noise of the sea lapping on the beach a constant reminder of just how close you are to paradise. There is a sandy area at the beach front of the garden with loungers a short stroll with a cup of tea or coffee and you can just sit and watch the world go by. Good security means little problem with vendors and the vendors who do walk by are very friendly you will soon get to know them and they are no trouble. Beach towels are provided and the laundry will do other stuff quite reasonably priced so no need to carry vast amounts in your luggage.
Food wise you have the choice and what a choice it is go to the supermarket and stock up the large fridge freezer that is in every unit and cook in when you wish and eat out when you wish. Lots of variation around and about eat out expensively great food to be had at la Bussola and Coconut Grove even better and cheaper at Pepperz and Lime and Putters, Colins steaks at Putters Bar flame grilled and as good as any on the island and on a Wednesday and Friday Dave brings his Fish and Chip van to the layby out back of AV 35ECD will get you the best fish and chips on the island what a bargain eat al fresco or take away you can get a really good currie as well.
So there you go something completely different Antigua Village is a great way to relax and spend some time no hassle no regimentation no fighting for food in queues at coffee machines and buffet tables or waiting for eggs you all know what I mean it is more of a relocation from home to home escape the horrible cold and spend some time living on Antigua one of the best island destinations in the Caribbean.
