Looking to book a summer trip to 1 of these resorts. We have been to SWH before a few years ago and loved it. But we hated the drive to the resort. We took the bus there and a private driver back and neither experience was a pleasant one for us even with motion sickness meds.
Have read plenty of reviews on both resorts. They appear similar although it seems like some guests complain about the vendors on the beach and the service from the staff at Antigua. We thought the staff at SWH was outstanding. I felt like the lunch choices at SWH were lacking. They need a pub or breach grill and all would be great for us in the food dept. we like all the room choices and food choices at Antigua. Lots of variety. Would stay on the Mediterranean side as that appeals to us more than the other. We love a nice beach to walk on or wade in the water but nice pools are where we like to spend our time relaxing. We have 10 days to stay and pretty much stay on resort. We do like SWH policy on no reservations. We eat generally late each evening so its nice to just decide and go. I know we would have to make reservations in Antigua.
Anybody have experience at both resorts? I'm really leaning on trying Antigua but my husband really wants to go back to SWH despite the drive. The helicopter ride to SWH is not an option for us. We prefer to spend that kind of money on our vacations.
Thanks in advance for any input. I'm probably just over thinking the decision and should just book one or the other but just when I think I, ready to book I get indecisive again.
