My husband surprised me with an Anniversary trip to Sandals Antigua. The resort was beautiful, the staff exceeded our expectation as well as the food. So many restaurants to choose from and all were excellent. We had a basic room, which was spacious and very clean. We enjoyed the "quiet areas as well as the main pool. Met wonderful people...

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Sandals. The people on the entire island are so warm and friendly. We took a tour of the island through the tour desk at the resort. Our driver, Mario, knew the history of the island, we had a great conversation, and we got to know a lot about Antigua on our...

Stayed in the new section in concierge level suite on the 2nd floor (really the 3rd as there is a ground floor) and the room was great, the bathroom huge and the food and service were up to Sandals standard quality. The big pool has to be one of their largest and the swim up bar served all the crazy...

We also just returned from our March vacation in Antigua. This was our third time back! The island is beautiful. We had a room on the Caribbean side with a view of the ocean. We love the grounds...lots of beautiful flowers and lush foliage. What keeps bringing us back to this resort most of all are the people who work...

Our first impression of this resort was very good. Not too large, but nice size to meet new people. One thing that did not impress us was a couple of the Restaurants. Eleanor's was a restaurant where you had to make reservations. We did, and were quite disappointed in the food. Not good at all for making it a bid...

Nancy Finn with Island GetaWays encouraged us to do our 2nd Sandals trip (1st was to St Lucia LeToc). The beach was spectular and we enjoyed walking every morning. We did 2 snorkel trips (included) and toured the island (our own tour). We both enjoyed one Spa service at the Red Lane Spa, a little too pricey. Otherwise we did...

Once again we just love that culture of excellence that Sandals promote-from the chef, to the bar tender, the groundsmen to the butler. That's why we keep going back and For an island that's only 19 miles long, Sandals has 700 employees mostly from the local community. That's impressive. Our vacation to Antigua was wonderful. My wife and I had...

....My husband and I got married at the resort last year and decided to return for our anniversary. We opted for the same package as before - villa with private plunge pool and butler service. We were allocated a villa on the Caribbean side and as we walked out onto the patio, a cat was waiting to "greet" us!! I...

We just returned from a week at Sandals Antigua, staying on the Caribbean side with a pool view. As is positively stated in numerous reviews; the grounds are beautiful and the common areas of both the Mediterranean and Caribbean areas are immaculate. I found the Caribbean rooms to be elegant, very clean, well amenitized, with a great bed and shower/bath....

My husband and I stayed at Sandals Grande Antigua in February 2017. We found the staff to be very accommodating (for the most part), the rooms clean, and the amenities and activities wonderful. Most of the staff was fun and outgoing...we had one episode with a not so great staff member, but the problem was taken care of quickly and...

“We chose a basic room. Most days we left the room at 8:30 am, returned at 5 to shower and get ready for dinner, then off to bed later.”
