Just arriving home from our honeymoon this past week, stayed at sandals Antigua resort. First off the resort itself is very nice, tropical and the staff is very friendly.
Upon being guided to our "upgraded" room my husband and I were both extremely disappointed and couldn't imagine what we were being upgraded from??! This resort is by no means cheap and I defiantly expected more from the rooms. Luckily we got another room the next and happily accepted it. Do not expect amazing views from any room unless you stay directly on the beach and or the top floor of the Mediterranean Village.
This is definitely a pool lovers paradise (we are beach people) and where plenty of couples go to meet new friends (this was my honeymoon, no new friends thanks!). The beach was pretty once you got around the men offering you hats, necklaces and if you wanted to "party".
Restaurants and pubs were actually pretty good, Carib the beer is great and the pool bar has super friendly staff. Highly recommend the Wadadli tour around the island!!! This was amazing and I would have done it twice if I didn't have to leave! The tour guides are hilarious and super fun.
Relaxing vacation, happy we tried it, but will not be returning.
