Sugar Ridge Resort is a wonderful place for a romantic island getaway. Nestled within the hills of Antigua, the resort provides exceptional views. ROOMS: The rooms are spectacular with modern finishes, ample closet space, a safe, four post bed and some complimentary water, which is appreciated and recognized. The veranda, however... wow! Never have I wanted to spend more time...

I have mixed feelings about Sugar Ridge. While the hotel has a lot of potential, it seems management is failing it - but let's start with the positives: 1) Comfy beds 2) Tasty and varied breakfast buffet 3) Great housekeeping 4) Beach shuttle on offer to get to nearby amazing beaches 5) Great front desk service 6) Being greeted with...

Didn't actually stay here but experienced the Sugar Club restaurant and it was wonderful. Would love to return for the full Sugar Ridge stay experience but unfortunately I was just passing through the island on business! Would recommend anyone to stay here. All of the staff encountered were very friendly and go above and beyond to be helpful. I observed...

From the moment I stepped foot into this hotel, my vacation started! First of all, Antigua was the perfect choice for a getaway that feels secluded, private, and relaxing. Sugar Ridge complemented the feel of the island. It was super modern and my room had is own private plunge pool. For this particular trip, I traveled by myself. Even though...

Firstly I thought this was a hotel on the beach but that was my error, friendly staff but a strange layout on a hill thank god they have a vehicle to take you to your room. Carmichael's restaurant was very pleasant, the food was great but the other customers were very annoying demanding the staff to be messing with lights...

This was our third visit to this beautiful hillside hotel - and we've never been disappointed. On a arrival to our room, there was a complimentary bottle of iced champagne waiting for us. Marvellous touch! We decided to take a room with a plunge pool on the lower levels this time around. I was a bit concerned at first about...

We decided that we would make our first trip to Antigua a two-centre affair starting on the west coast and then trying the east. We went for the west fist as there is a bit more going on and the east is somewhat remote. Sugar Ridge was just the job. It is a small hotel with just 60 rooms but...

My mum is 65 years old and she broke her elbow and the hotel got us a doctor who ripped us off and sent us to a private clinic where we had to pay $1200 for x-rays and they wouldn't even give her a cast. The manager of the hotel didn't care even after we brought this to his attention.

We are aware of the incident at Turners Beach Bar and trust your mother's arm is healing well. We are also aware of the issue with the doctor's charges following your return and discussions with the Tour Operator you booked your holiday with. Usually doctors visits are covered by travel insurance so you should take it up with them ....

Loved this property located on a hillside near Jolly Harbour. My room was #51 which was one of the last ones. It was an upper room with a king bed. The view was gorgeous and the room comforting and peaceful. I love the huge trunk at the end of the bed that can hold several pieces of luggage to keep...
