“Great Location for Relaxation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We recently returned from a week at Antigua Village using an RCI exchange. We enjoyed the small resort atmosphere. We found our studio accommodations very comfortable and conveniently located to the beach and only steps from the pool. We found the units a little outdated, but adequate. We had issues with water pressure and not getting hot water on the first day, but both were quickly restored when we reported the problems. We were met at the airport by Roger, a local taxi driver who was very accommodating on our day of arrival as he took us to a local market to purchase food and snacks for the week. He was very accessible all week when we needed a ride or tour of the island. The RCI representatives were on site and very helpful to book tours and gave us great suggestions and information. The resort does not have a spa, but there is one located a short walk from the resort at a neighboring resort. However, we chose to have our massage treatments in our own room with local Massage Therapist, Barbara Bishop. She is a delightful lady who is absolutely fabulous at what she does. The RCI on site office can make reservations with her. Our visit was during the off season for Antigua, so many of the local restaurants and businesses were closed. Only one open restaurant is within walking distance. We found most things to be more expensive than other islands, but we know that tourism is the main source of income for the people who live there. Everyone was friendly and we felt safe the entire time. If relaxation is your primary goal, this is the perfect place. The island is small and most of the sightseeing can be accomplished in 2-3 days. It was a great little spot to become a beach bum or just lie under a shade tree!

We just finished a 9 day stay at Antigua Village resort located in beautiful Dickinson Bay. We exchanged through RCI and were able to add on two additional days. We loved that Antigua Village is a smaller time share resort and that all units have less than a minute walk to the beach. One of the best things about the resort is the lovely white beach with warm, turquoise blue waters -- this is where we spent almost all of our time! So easy to run to the room to get drink refills, grab lunch, etc and be back on the beach! We also met so many wonderful people on the beach who were staying at Antigua Village. The gardens were lovely and well maintained. We had a large studio unit which had a queen size bed, love seat, two chairs, and a small dining room table w/ chairs. The kitchen has a full size fridge, stove, oven, microwave, and plenty of accessories. The balcony was large. Rooms are basic decor, no granite, marble, etc, but very clean. Antigua Village also has privately owned units available for rent which have different decors and updates. We had a strong wifi signal. We had two maintenance requests, and both were resolved in less than an hour. Staff was wonderful and friendly -- Andrea, Candace, and Mr. Stephens in particular made our vacation special! Taxi ride from the airport was $16. We were there in Sept, the low season, so many restaurants were closed for the month. There are 4-5 restaurants in easy walking distance. Sandals resort shares the beach, and sometime music at night can get loud. Most evenings the music was turned off by 10:30 and we could barely hear it with the A/C & fan running. One evening their was loud music until 1:00am and it was necessary to put in ear plugs. This was the only negative we experienced all week. Too bad Sandals is not a better neighbor! There were local people selling trinkets and catamaran cruises on the beach, but once you told them no, they left you alone. We did Miguel's excursion to Prickly Pear Island and enjoyed it. Everyone RAVED about the circumnavigation sail thru Wadaldi Cats while we were there (recommend booking thru Andrea or Candy vs random guys on the beach). We plan to do that excursion on our next visit to Antigua Village!

We enjoyed our 4 day stay at Antigua Village. We used our RCI exchange at this location and were pleased with our accomodations. As others have said, each room is different and probably vary in comfort and decor. Great view of the ocean from our upstairs balcony. Free Wi-Fi was a nice bonus. The staff was exceptionally helpful. We love to walk and were disapointed there was no place to go within a few blocks. Taxis are expensive; next time we will consider renting a car. Please note that this resort is close to "Sandals" and the music is loud in certain areas of Antigua Village.

We plan to go back to Antgua Village in 2015.

We enjoyed our stay at Antigua Village. The staff was very nice, the grounds were clean and well maintained. The room decor was a bit dated but who wants to spend time in their room when you're in the Caribbean! We enjoyed the location, close to St. John's and a good spot to start our adventures.

Rent a car if you can stand driving on the wrong side of the road, the island has a lot to offer!

Tip: try La Bussola just down the road, it's a hidden gem! Look for the small white sign.

We had a studio apartment.Fully equipped kitchen with oven for baking if you wanted to. So equipped was this unit that we were able to invite friends over so I cooked and had a breakfast party for about 8 persons. Swimming pool is steps from my room and ocean a few feet away. Place is clean and gardens well kept. Staff was nice, the housekeeper I had was Quteylyn. When ever we had to call the front desk, the response was pleasant and pleasant.
Location was perfect, quite close to the city with a big supermarket, First choice close by so you could get your groceries.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good but there are some with direct view of the ocean.

Each room is unique. All kitchens are fully equipped from oven, dishwasher to kitchen utensils. Nice plates and wine glasses. Air-con in all rooms which is a must and decent internet access. Very clean and garden well entertained. On the Dickenson Bay which is one of the most beautiful on the island. Little bars on the beach where you can have dinner, nice cocktails and dance on live music. Everyone is so sympathetic. There are transport facilities to and from the hotel. But better have your own :).

Room Tip: Better find a room around the pool. You have a better view than the other rooms. :). Umm ensure you...

Stayed for 2 weeks in May.
This is a timeshare resort on Dickenson Bay which is very pretty but remote.
There are very few local bars and restaurants as Sandals is right next door and this is All Inclusive which means local business' struggle to attract sufficient customers.

The accommodation was very clean and cleaned every day.
The Gardens are very pretty with a large varied collection of trees and shrubs.
The pool is pretty but only rarely cleaned so usually full of various types of vegetation which has been blown in - especially on Saturdays when the lawns are mowed and lots of grass ends up in the pool.
We were eaten alive by mosquitoes so don't forget your spray's - we did and it was a painful lesson.
The reception is cool and has many ideas for trips and excursions however the Reception staff are not very communicative and look miserable so we tended to ask the local taxi drivers who didn't seem to need an email message to let their faces know they were happy and smiled a bit.
I can only assume they are family members of the proprietors as they wouldn't get employed in a service industry otherwise.
Dickenson Bay is remote from St Johns and around a $20 taxi ride each way. It will be up to you to ascertain if that is EC$ or US$. It is a local scam to quote prices in dollars and when the price is agreed to state that the price is US dollars which equates to 2.6 times more expensive than the equivalent amount in EC$.
I recommend the Sunday trip to Shirley Heights which is organised by reception when they can be bothered.
Also recommend the Catamaran trip around the Island on Tuesdays on the Wadali Cat, see Jacob the Rasta man on the Beach for bookings.
Recommend C&C wine bar in St Johns for a drink and cheap eats - ask the taxi driver its easy to find at the Cruise ship quays.on Radcliffe Quay.
And say Hi to Evelyn a really nice, friendly, beach trader selling handmade trinkets.

Room Tip: Every room is different and you get what you get.
