This was our first visit to Antigua Village Beach Resort and having read some of the reviews we were a bit worried about what to expect, however, we were pleasantly surprised. The resort is directly on Dickenson Bay beach which is a superb sandy beach. There is a lovely clean swimming pool with loungers and the most beautiful gardens we have seen in this type of apartment complex. We stayed in a studio in the garden area and we are so pleased we were in the garden area as it was by far the quietest part of the resort. During our stay there we heard lots of complaints from people staying in the poolside apartments about the noise coming from Sandals and the small restaurant on the other side of the resort, however, we could not hear anything from where we were. Almost all the rooms in the garden area have sea views from their patios which was a bonus we were not expecting, as it is not advertised on the website - perhaps it should be.
The only disadvantage we found with having a studio was having everything in one room, so we could hear the fridge switching on and off during the night and when friends dropped by we had to entertain them in the living room/bedroom - not very convenient.
We had such a good holiday, we hope to return very soon, so we took a look at some of the other apartments and decided we would definitely spend a few extra dollars and rent a suite, which has a separate bedroom and a proper living room area instead of a studio. The best suite we looked at was suite 46A which is really close to the sea and is so well furnished and decorated and only a few steps from the beach, we would love to stay there next time.
There are restaurants on either side of the complex and an English style pub just across the road, but we mostly dined on the patio which was lovely.
This is a very friendly resort and they have a free drinks evening each week where guests can meet one another. We made lots of friends while we were there, some of them timeshare guests who have been visiting for many years and we hope we may meet some of them again next time we visit. We would thoroughly recommend this beach resort.
