This was our third stay at a Sandals Resort and it didn't disappoint. From our transfer at the airport to our final day, everything was first class. We stayed at the Mediterranean Village. Our check in was leisurely and set the tone for the week. We were given champagne and appetizers while we waited for our room, which was great!...

My husband and I just returned from Sandals Grand Antigua on Saturday, 4/20/13. I don't typically stay at All Inclusive or even large resorts. My husband and I are very committed to eating a plant base diet without added salt, oil or sugar. I contacted Donavan Dobson via email prior to our stay and he assured me they could accomodate...

It took me a while to get time to write this review. I am a travel professional and I thought the Sandals brand was generic. Wrong! I was in the main building on the concierge level and the view was fantastic. The room was large and beautiful and spotless. The food was fabulous and I can totally recommend this hotel...

My husband and I had the most amazing time at the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort. The food, drinks, and sun were all amazing! The resort is lovely and the staff was very attentive. This was our first Sandals experience and we were not disappointed. We look forward to returning soon!

We have visited Sandals Resorts 15 times including all in St Lucia, most in Jamaica and have been to Antigua on 6 occasions. All of the resorts are very good and have their own personality if that makes sense. Antigua is a beautiful resort with the flora and fauna in the Caribbean side and the elegantly appointed suites in the...

Although this was not my first island "all inclusive" experience, it was my first and probably last Sandals experience. This resort was beautiful, and the food was excellent, but something was off compared to the other resorts I have stayed at. It started with check-in. We were travelling with a group of friends, and we were all staying in the...

Overall this hotel was ok but service & food really lets it down. We hadnt tried sandals before & probably wouldn't again. Very expensive for what you get!!! Rooms were clean and had most facilities so pretty good but bathroom need Improvement (our bath plug didnt work so could only shower). Very comfy beds :) The beach was NOT as...

This is our second time at this hotel! It is wonderful! We came here for the first time last November and liked it so much we decided to return for our 50th anniversary last month in March.

Great hotel, great food, very friendly and helpful staff. Beach was very clean, but not enough shade unless you had a Butler who would reserve your shaded spot at 5.30 am. This was my only complaint everything else was of a very high standard. Sometimes the Canadian contingent became very loud but that is because they dont seem to be...
