“Great resort in all aspects”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Just returned from a week at Verandah and highly recommend. The individual cottage like villas were comfortable and spacious and the entire resort exudes a calmness.
We found all food satisfactory but unexpectedly felt the food and service was superior at the Seabreeze buffet.
All staff were warm and friendly with a quality of service standard that far exceeds many other resorts I've visited. We were especially drawn to Iran who introduced herself on our first day and we enjoyed lovely daily chats with her.
This is one of the few resorts I've stayed in that I would return to without hesitation.

Stayed April 2014, traveled with friends

Just returned from fantastic holiday, enjoyed by all 12 of us ! Resort was great, clean, food and drink of great quality and beach lovely and relaxing. Nicole's was truly great, def worth the supplement . Only area I had issues with was some employees seemed not very up for working in hospitality and little rude but didn't spoil our holiday and we would def return to this amazing resort

As this was our second visit to the Verandha in 2 years we kind of knew what to expect, and unlike when visiting new resorts , we felt we were on holiday as soon as we had checked in and were transported to our room.
We were pleasantly surprised to find the resort largely unchanged since our previous visit.
Rooms are spotlessly clean , light and airy, with plenty of room for clothes storage. It is true to say the showers do have a tendency to flood onto the bathroom floor, which we tried to remedy by positioning a hand towel and the end of the shower screen.
We spent most of our days on the sports beach, where there was always plenty of choice of sun beds, you certainly didn't need to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve your sun bed.
The sea is lovely and warm, just a shame about the seaweed, however, this is easily avoided and certainly didn't put us off using the beach.
We did not sit around the main swimming pool as for us, there is not enough shade, although the swimming pool itself is beautiful.
Always a plentiful supply of good quality towels for use on the beach or around the pool.
Every member of staff try their utmost to make sure you have the best holiday you can, they have to be the best asset of the hotel. It was nice to see many familiar faces from our previous visit.
We found the food to be of a more than acceptable quality, with plenty of choice at the buffet restaurant . I would think the most fussy of eaters should be able to find something to eat. There was an excellent choice at the breakfast buffet, again , something for everyone.
There are 3 restaurants you need to reserve, one being the beach bar grill, the others being Bucaneers and Nicole's which is the fine dining restaurant and requires a $30 Supplement person.
Since we were last there the main restaurant has had air-conditioning installed.. This was definitely a good decision and is much more comfortable for both eating and for the waiting staff. We ate in all the restaurants, and didn't have a bad meal. Oh, and don't forget afternoon tea served by the main bar area.
Choice of drinks is wide, and branded drinks are served. It would be a nice touch to have cocktail menus at the bars. We didn't find the drinks were watered down.
We agree with some other reviews, that it would be nice to have some water in the room on arrival, I seem seem to remember last time we had a jug in the fridge for water, this time we didn't. Just would have been a nice touch.
Evening entertainment is fairly low key and finishes before midnight, so if you are wanting loud music and late evening entertainment, this resort would not be for you.
The resort is about 30 minutes transfer time from the airport and taxis are readily available from the desk outside the terminal building.
All in all, we had a very reading holiday, what is exactly what we wanted.
Ate and drank far too much, but went home glad we had returned to the Verandha, would we return in the future? Most definitely.
To the management and staff... Keep up the good work!!

Room Tip: Choose a room around the main swimming pool for easy access to the sports beach and the main restaur...

Here at the Verandah now enjoying a week of relaxation. Nice property with decent amenities. If your looking for a Mexico style resort, this is not the place. If your looking to just relax on the beach or by the pool and have some good food, then this is the place for you. Plenty to choose from on the buffet at SeeBreeze or the ever changing menu at Buccaneers. If you like to walk this is also the place to go. Plenty of walking to the beaches, the main lobby and the restaurants. Makes it nice after a meal just to walk and listen to the fan palms blow in the breeze. Staff for the most pat they are very friendly and helpful (one lady at guest services made us feel like we were bothering her when asking about a menu.

Room Tip: If not waterfront, rooms 309 and 310 have a nice view of the bay.

My wife and I went to Verandah this past March (2014) and had a truly wonderful experience. Very relaxing, great food, great drinks (fantastic bartenders!) and beautiful beaches. If you get a chance to go to Nicole's restaurant, you should go, 5 star dining experience that I would compare to fine dining in NYC. Very friendly staff, willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were happy the entire trip.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have great views, if you want internet access in your room, make the request when...

Beautiful resort with a very private beach - cottages nestled around the property with lots of activities and lots of opportunity to just soak in the beautiful sun. Variety of food choices with options to suit all.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not too far from the main pool and buffet area if you don't like to walk,

Its been a few years since we've been but I thought Id share our wonderful experience.

We decided on a family vacation to Antigua Feb 2012, my kids were 4 and 6.
A unique and wonderful resort, I loved the great double units overlooking the water and multiple levels. A large room with pull out sofa and king size bed and a gorgeous washroom, large balcony.

The resort is large, but they do have golf cart shuttles if you don't feel like walking.
Very family friendly resort.
2 pools, 1 main pool, and 1 adult only pool
2 beach locations, we stayed more at the main beach
A large amount of water toys that kept the kids entertain for hours, the beach is shallow that you can walk in for a long time before it getting deep.
At first when there was only 1 buffet restaurant I was a little worried but it was great, theme night, Beach BBQ
Beach grill was great in the afternoon for a quick bite, Verandah Burger is so yummy!
Kids went to bed quiet early so we didn't see all the entertainment.
It was the first time we left the kids at the kids club, but we couldn't get them out once they did. It was near the main pool, so it was nice to go and check on them every 30 mins.
Afternoon tea and light snack (sandwiches/cookies) are brought out, nice treat

Decided to rent a car and tour the island vs going on an excursion, great costal views!

Definitely return and recommend

Room Tip: higher units that face direct on the water, if you have kids something not too far to the main area...
