Sandals Antigua Grande is a beautiful resort. Accommodations, food, drinks, service are good. It is a short ride from the airport so it is very convenient. The beach is stunning with lots of couples & honeymooners. Not much of nightlife at this resort. Need to make reservations for some restaurants. We met a few couples that were there for a... More

We stayed in the Caribbean side of the hotel, the room was a little tired but it was clean and adequate. The bathroom had a few issues, such as mould around the basins but you learnt to not look at it while brushing your teeth. On a positive note, we much preferred this side as it was quieter and we...

Such a beautiful island and amazing resort. We had a butler room and it was definitely worth it. Cosi was one of our butlers and he did a phenomenal job!!! Anything we wanted or asked for he made sure we got. The resort is gorgeous and the staff were all extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating. I can't say it too... More

First off, we were very hesitant to book at any all-inclusive after a bad, first time all-inclusive(not Sandals) experience at another Caribbean island a few years ago. Antigua, our first Sandals, impressed us. They delivered the hassle-free vacation we were looking for. You pay prime dollar, but they're good. And you can get a drink without having to wave your...

We have visited several Sandal Resorts and this is hands down the best!! Impeccable food and I cannot express how wonderful our butler team was, Nkosi, Romaine and Danielle. The entire staff and butlers helped us "disconnect" for a week. The maintenance on the grounds were absolutely gorgeous and never without perfection. We are excited to return again next year!!!

My husband & I spent 14 wonderful days in Sandals Grande Antigua. We were there August 6 to 20, 2016. We were checked into our room very quickly. They originally had us booked for the 3rd floor, but when I asked for a walkout room they showed us both rooms and we picked the walkout. The patio was bigger and... More

Overall great trip and very pleased with everything Sandals had to offer. Our room had an ocean view as promised and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony each night. The staff was friendly and helpful and very quick to fix the few minor issues we experienced (door card reader broke and had to be replaced by maintenance and a bird... More
