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

If you are looking for a vacation of pampering in paradise... look no further! Room: We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet One Bedroom Suite. We wanted a room that provided us with enough space to spread out and be comfortable without being too big. We would highly recommend this room to anyone. The room comes with Butler service which...

The location is gorgeous! The water is probably the most beautiful I have seen. The sand is a gorgeous powder white. Gentle waves and cool breeze. The only things I think management should consider is gull wires over the pool area and something to do with keeping gulls back from eating areas. There are also a lot on locals peddling... More

Some Pro’s- Ocean water is beautiful, crystal clear and bright blue. The sand on the beach is very soft, almost like baby powder. We loved swimming out to the floats anchored in the water. If you’re lucky and look down into the water you can see all the different fish swimming around. Marios had a delicious antipasto before dinner. There... More

My wife and I arrived at Sandals Antigua at 3:00 PM on 8/9. The airport is around 10 minute away from the resort. After arriving we received the formal cool towel treatment and were whisked away to fill out information on an iPad. Afterwards we eventually landed in our room 801. The room was spacious and had an open balcony.... More

Just returned from our honeymoon at Sandals Grande Antigua. We visited Sandals Barbados last summer which was great, but this place blew it out of the water. Food - excellent quality and lots to choose from from sushi, Caribbean, Italian, pub grub etc etc. We didn't have a bad meal the entire time we were there. The options for lunch... More

Here is our review of the Sandals in Antigua. We went one year ago to Exellence Playa Muejeres. I felt that for the price and the reputation Sandals would be very similar if not better to Excellence. Our travel agent reached out to Sandals who provided several generic responses. Beach The beach at this property is very small. There was... More

We spent 7 days from August 6-13 at sandals Antigua . This was our 3rd sandals to visit and the one we liked the best. Upon arrival at the airport it took about 40 min to get through and get our bags. The sandals desk is right outside so no need for help with your bags. We waited no time... More

I literally just got home from my 5 days at Sandals Grande Antigua. I am already feeling a bit depressed because this was the best vacation I've had in a long time. The resort grounds are beautiful. The people were all nice. The rooms are decent sized. I stayed on the Mediterranean side. The balcony was kinda small, but really... More
