We are just back from sandals Grand Antigua. There are enough reviews about the food so to sum it up I will say the food was just OK. Did it make my socks roll up and down no, was it nice and a decent quality yes. For such a large resort I found the entertainment to be on a rather...

This was my first Sandals All Inclusive trip. I'm so glad that we picked Antigua. Great resort and huge. Even though we were told that the resort was at capacity, and all cabins were booked, there was never any crowded areas. The restaurants were ALL great, the rooms were wonderful, service was wonderful, and the atmosphere was extraordinary. I would...

I also contacted Sandals via their website but still no response confirming. Anyone know how I can contact them to confirm and just to make sure...

We were shown to our room which was in the Mediterranean village, the room was quite large and spacious with a four poster bed, small sitting area TV with a good variety of channels and mini bar...

We are currently here at Sandals Grande Antigua and have to say it's as good, if not better than when we were here i3 years ago. Accommodation is a beautiful walkout Mediterranean Club room, with stunning views of the gardens. The beach is excellent and we have had no issue finding sun beds and umbrellas, the same applies to all...

If you are a returning member and you are assigned Shemika, you are in luck. She was fantastic. She came to my room within the first 30 minutes and then helped me throughout my stay with anything that I needed. She is a great person and someone that will bend over backward to help you whether it is dinner reservations,...

Returning for our anniversary decided upon the Sandals Grande Antigua resort for an all-inclusive holiday. Well it truly is all-inclusive with an excellent selection of places to eat and drink. In fact the hardest decision each day was where to eat. We stayed in the Frangipani building in a club walk out room which is located in the quieter Caribbean...

This was my second visit to this hotel, the first being in 2011. That visit was the baseline against which I judged further Sandals holidays in St Lucia and Grenada. I think it is only fair to apply that baseline to compare the Antigua hotel this time. It is clear that there are some improvements in some areas, but some...
