Sandals can normally be relied upon to give a brilliant holiday experience. This site, like all the other 6 we have stayed at, provides wonderful rooms; a wide variety of restaurants; high quality food and drinks; wonderful and friendly service; beautiful gardens; and great entertainment. During the day we like to sunbath in quiet shady areas. We have found that...

Have just returned from our 2nd visit to this Sandals - went same week last year. Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of trip although have come to the conclusion that food needs to be improved. Having spoken to Mr G he explained that flavours tend to be played down for the American taste - we would have like more Caribbean flavours...

My husband and I recently returned after spending a wonderful week at this resort. This is now one of our favourite Sandals along with SGSL and SEB. We stayed in one of the cottages on the Caribbean side and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if we returned. We thought the room was fine for us. We don't need alcohol...

My husband an I stayed in the Mediteranean side in the Butler Suite on the 6th floor of the Cypress Building. Our Butlers Romane ,Dionne and Nkosi were great. I felt badly for them. They had to get to the Resort hours before their shift started to reserve a Beach Hut for us. This is part of what guests are...

Just returned from a 4-night stay at Sandals Grand Antigua. Enjoyed the resort immensely and will definitely go back to this or another Sandals property. As background, we are relatively seasoned travelers who have visited Beaches Turks & Caicos for the past two winters, finally decided to take an adults-only trip this year. Chose Antigua based on the advice of...

This resort is top notch!! From the employees to the managers everyone and everything was great. The locals were very educational and made the tours the best. Barefoot on the beach was the best restaurant in the resort. Bartenders made it fun and plenty of pools to choose from. The spa was great for our 2 massages we had and...

This is our 6th stay at this resort and we have seen it evolve from a simple resort to what Sandals call a Grande and Spa resort. We stayed at poolside bluff cove accommodation. Very clean, spacious,well furnished and appointed. The resort has improved overall from our last visit 4 years ago, witness to advent of free Wi-Fi anywhere on...

My wife And I really enjoyed our trip. All the restaurants were good and we particularly liked the Italian restaurant. The steak house has some problems but that might just have been our meal. Scuba diving was decent if not all that spectacular. We had a poolside bottom floor room next to a pool on the Caribbean side. Both of...

We returned to Sandals Grande Antigua for our third year in a row. It is our favorite Sandals location. We stayed on the Mediterranean side, with great butler service from Roman, Dionne and Ncosi. We really recommend butler service, even if you don't use them very much. We have changed our point of view on restaurants. Now, our favorites are...

This was our 10th stay at Sandals but first one in Antigua. The resort is great. The food is amazing in the French and Barefoot. Italian is hit and miss but great antipasto buffet. Scuba diving was mediocre- visibility was no great and the seas pretty choppy this time of the year. Lost of the reef is dead or dying.
