This resort is like paradise, food is excellent, staff are excellent, accommodation excellent and view from villa's are breath taking. You will not be disappointed if you stay at the Verandah.
I have never been so relaxed in all my life.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent but if you can afford it choose a waterfront room.

Stayed with my partner & 11yr old daughter for two weeks, returned yesterday. So very sad to leave!
This resort has everything you could want, the loveliest staff who work very hard and really care! Huge comfortable rooms, great air con, massive comfy beds and fantastic views! The food is exceptional all credit to the very dedicated kitchen staff! Always a good sign when every time time you step up to the buffet it's like you are the first there. Always lots of choice and very fresh.
We used the water sports beach every day, this is clean, not crowded beautiful warm water and the guys on the watersports so kind, friendly and helpful.
We did two trips, one we took a taxi & toured the island which was very informative and good way to learn the history of the island. Also we did the Eco tour with Adventure Antigua, had an amazing day on the sea, learned about conservation and the team on board could not have been more helpful and kind.
We met a great variety of people of various nationalities here & all were so nice. It isn't a party place but a great Caribbean chilled environment that's safe and friendly with no shortage of food & drinks ( how I miss the rum!)
A huge thank you to Barbara, Iran and all the staff for making our Caribbean dream holiday come true!
If you are considering this resort then I would recommend you book now, start getting excited and I think you will have the best holiday ever!

Room Tip: All great we had a waterfront which we could not fault

This was our 3rd visit to Verandah. We love Antigua and spend two weeks (june is our favorite time) each year. Verandah has really kicked it up this past year adding a new beach grill. We never use to come down to the first beach but on our last year's visit, they had built a 18 hole mini golf and we would come down at dawn to play (it is the only miniature golf course we have played on that has you laughing at each hole!) Now with the grill and beach volleyball, we rotate beaches each day. The grounds are amazing; I have never seen such beautiful and lush gardens. The air conditioned restaurants are also another huge plus this year. Thanks to the terrific staff; no need or request is ever a problem.
See you next year!
PS LOVED our couples massage in the new open air treatment room. I am not sure how you can keep on improving, but can't wait to see what next year brings!!

My wife and I stayed at the Verandah resort for 2 weeks in early May and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Things got off to a bad start when our room wasn't ready on arrival. After a few hours waiting in reception or by the Rasta beach we were told there was a problem with our room that couldn't be fixed. As an apology we were upgraded to a waterside suite and were given a fruit platter and a free meal in Nicole's. Things do go wrong at times and the sign of a good hotel is how the put it right, which they did here.

Rooms are very large and comfortable with a good sized balcony. The bathroom was well appointed and the water always hot. The view from our room was spectacular and we spent lots of time watching the pelicans and other birds.

The best thing at the hotel were the staff - always smiling and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They seemed great with the kids on the resort too, always stopping to say hello.

The breakfasts were excellent and the food of a high quality. Similarly lunches were good with variety at the buffet and friendly service at the beach bar. The evening buffet could occasionally be a bit limited if you're a slightly fussy eater, which is our only criticism. We ate in Nicole's a few times and it's definitely worth the extra cost. The surf and turf in particular was incredible! Bucaneers was also great, with a spicy prawn dish being the highlight. We usually booked the same day and found availability wasn't a problem.

The pools were clean and generally quiet. It could sometimes be hard to get a sun lounger with shade after 10am but on those occasions we just went to the beach. The beaches were beautiful and the sand pure white. We loved the Rasta beach in particular which was never busy and a great place to relax.

This is a quiet resort although the evening entertainment was good. If you want a party holiday this is not the place for you.

Overall we had a wonderful time and the relaxing holiday we were hoping for. We would definitely return in the future.

We have just returned from a nine night holiday at the Verandah and can only describe our holiday as superb. Customer service was of an exceedingly high standard throughout the resort from the glass of champagne on arrival until our cases were loaded for departure. We found all staff to be friendly and ever willing to help with a smile on their face. The resort was exceptionally clean and very well maintained. We had a waterfront suite and really enjoyed waking up to watch the pelicans dive for fish. Although the resort was spaced out there always seemed to be plenty of shuttles to take people around. Food in all three restuarants was of a high standard although Buccaneer was our favourite. We went for a relaxing holiday and got exactly that. I know we all have different standards but I honestly don't know how anyone could fault this resort. We had a fantastic holiday and would most certainly recommend this resort to others. Would we go back - most certainly.

Room Tip: Waterfront suites provided excellent views.

Beautiful quiet resort, exactly like the pictures. I spent a wonderful 10 days in a Waterside suite. The view from the suite was amazing, lovely to watch the Pelicans fish first thing on a morning. Staff were all friendly and helpful.

Food was good, bar was fully stocked with wines and spirits. The Rum Punch lived up to it's name and packed one! It's not a party place so don't go there expecting a wild night life.

I would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all and switch off...

We took a much needed vacation, and had the good fortune to pick Veranda in Antigua. The entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable. Our week flew by too quickly. Would love to go back.
