This was our 3rd time here. Perfect resort. Dining options are really good as is staff service. Perfect for a relaxing holiday. The short 15 min transfer from airport is a big plus. Would return again.

The overall experience was positive but some issues need addressing. When arriving in Antigua boarder control is quick but once you find the Sandals desk its utter chaos! The staff are yelling at each other and yelling at the drivers, you get shoved by personnel and not to mention tripping over the stacked suitcases. Once in the sandals bus our...

Sandals used to be the place to be seen, a luxury holiday in the best areas. Sandals Antigua, it's too big, too crowded, not enough sun beds by the pools or on the beach. Butlers claim sunbeds for the high payers, leaving towels on the beds before 0600. Empty bottles and cans litter the area around the beach and on...

The positives include the accommodations, housekeeping in our room, and the beach. It's also only 20 min from the airport. In my opinion the food quality, freshness, menu options,and preparation...

Stayed at Sandals for 4 days Jan. 5th-8th 2017. Quick tip, when you arrive at Antigua airport the Sandals desk is outside across the road last desk. We had a club level walk-out pool side room 806 in the Caribbean village. So quiet, the pool was always empty & perfect for the late afternoon. The beach...small, but clean soft sand,...

Just returned from a fabulous vacation. We have travelled to several other resorts to include Excellence, Secrets, and Royallton just to name a few. This was our first Sandals vacation and first time in Antigua. With that being said I have a lot to compare this to. Airport was quick to process through. The Sandals transfer is right across the...
