The property was beautiful. The food was great. Weather was great. My only compliant was that our bed was HORRIBLE. It creaked and was uncomfortable. The creaking woke me up and I attempted to change rooms but they said they were full so they attempted to fix the bed. It was better but still not how a hotel bed should...

Someone has to mop up the water in the lobby when it rains, it was 2 hours or more and u had to walk thru water to get to breakfast, which is unacceptable. Anyone could slip and fall, absolutely terrible. The lobby is the most important area as everyone goes there. Everything else was great, but that is a big...

The General Manager Mr G and ASG Nico are always to be seen front of house making sure their guests are happy.We had a pool...

Background on where this review is coming from. My wife and I were on our 10 year anniversary and are in our upper 30’s. We have been to one other Sandals resort prior to this and have visited 9 of the Caribbean islands prior to visiting Antigua. We had a beachfront room #112 on the Caribbean side of the resort...

My husband and I have stayed at this resort 13 times! We come for the relaxation, the beach and the great weather that Antigua has to offer. Our last trip to Antigua was December 2016. It clearly is at the point the resort needs to update some key things. The room was never vacuumed each day. We know this because...

My husband and I visited Sandals Grande Antigua 11/19--11/26/2016. I am late in reviewing, but better late than never. We travelled with two couples that we met 2 years prior at Sandals Whitehouse (South Coast). I am giving this resort 5 stars. Was everything perfect? No. Was it a perfect vacation for us? Yes. I firmly believe a vacation is...

Excellent service great staff. Website doesn't really say a dress code but bring dress clothes!!!. Even for a little beach resort their dress code at restaurants is quite strict and on the verge of absurd. A guy can't wear a sleeveless to lunch but if you are a woman they let you dress as scantily clad as you want. Everybody...

This was our first visit to a Sandals resort and indeed the Caribbean. The first plus for us was the short transfer from the airport after a long flight! When we arrived we were welcomed by friendly staff with cool towels and a glass of Champagne. We were checked in quickly and our bags were brought straight to our room....
