“Good Price in Perfect Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

My husband and I got married in Antigua in November and did a lot of exploring around the hotels in English Harbour and Falmouth Harbour for the guests to stay. We ended up booking the majority of our guests into the Antigua Yacht Club Marina Resort. The price was great for the setting, location, and clean good rooms. We actually found a great deal thru Expedia that was much cheaper than the listed price thru the hotels website. The location is perfect within walking distance of local restaurants, cafes, beaches and attractions like Nelson's Dockyard. We and our guests found the rooms to be very clean and quite large, especially the suites. A few guests did say it got a bit loud in the lower rooms at night, as it is within walking distance from many of the most popular bars and restaurants in the area. But the guests in the higher rooms, back away from the main road said the noise was not noticeable.

Stayed here for a few nights during the RORC 600. We had room 1 which is right on the road so first thing in the morning you do get noise from the delivery guys who tend to have their stereos on at full volume. Also Cloggys just across the road has party night on Wednesday, if you're not going to party the night away you can listen to it instead. For that reason you may want to try and stay further up the hillside.
Otherwise it's a great location with bars, restaurants on tap all close by.
Rooms are large & spacious with air con, fridges, safe etc.
Our fan only seemed to have one setting, hurricane, but it helped to keep the mosies away at least.
Surprised that you have to pay for wifi access in your room, it is free in the lobby though.

Room Tip: Stay away from road if you want a good nights sleep

The quality of the place is reflected in the price, it's not quite the 4 star resort it used to be and the rooms and bathrooms are in some need of refurbishment. The rooms seem to have been stripped of all non essential furniture so now give the impression of being stark and bare. New mattresses are needed! And little things like the safe and phone were not working and the wc worked only intermittently. The staff were friendly and as helpful as they could be and the location and views across the harbour are really good.

Room Tip: Get one higher up the slope, for better views and less noise

After a twenty day crossing from Gran Canarie the Yacht Club was an ideal place for a comfortable room great shower and needed sleep. Fantastic location close to restaurants and next to the harbor. The gym was excellent and the staff was extremely accomodating. Three guys shared a suite,. The staff set up two twin beds and a cot. We could not ask for more. It is fifteen minutes from Pigeon Beach and Nelson Boatyard.

which was spotless. Fantastic views of the harbour, close
to beautiful Pigeon Beach and plenty of good restaurants. Found the average age of everyone to be 20-30 and all yachties. Would go back but only for a couple of nights, due to the fact
we felt old there!!

We stayed here for five days while visiting our daughter, who works on one of the yachts. Beautiful view, close to everything, parking available. Clean and well kept. I was a little alarmed when I read the review about musty and in need of updating. Our room overlooking the harbor was nice and well kept.

Location is great and the staff is friendly, however this hotel is basically a dump. Rooms are musty and smell as if they haven't been inhabited for decades. Plumbing is terrible; toilets and showers clog daily. Bed is very uncomfortable. Rooms are not secure and the old screens are a magnate for insects. Though we loved being close to shops and restaurants in a bustling marina, I'm not convinced that the benefits outweighed the sore lack of creature comforts.
