We stayed at the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa March 4th - 11th of this year. This beach was one of the nicest ones I have ever been on. The sand is like baby powder, I absolutely loved it! As far as beach chairs, we never had a problem, however, there were times we may have gotten the last...

We stayed in the Mediterranean side of the complex in a Honeymoon Suite. Very nice, lovely big bathroom, with his/hers wash basins, jacuzzi bath and walk-in shower. Lovely beach, great selection of restaurants, and fantastic grounds very well looked after. Definitely recommend this resort has everything you need for five star luxury.

Decided to return to Sandals Antigua to celebrate or 30th Anniversary. Having been there before, we knew roughly what to expect. For the most part, this is a lovely resort in the Sandals/Beaches family of properties so I will hit a few high and not so high points. Upon check-in, we were welcomed in as Diamond Member Sandals Select guests...

Little attention to details missing; (Inconsistent housekeeping - sometimes bed turn down service happened after 9:30 pm- once maid came to clean the room, and we...

We did absolutely nothing other than eat, drink, sleep, and relax. It was an amazing week. The rooms are nothing to brag about, but very clean and comfortable. Our room was 2 minutes from the breathtaking beach. We thought the food was better than any other resort we had been to in the Caribbean. We'd never stayed at a Sandals...

Attention detail is the norm at this resort. The public restrooms were spotless and they even had folks sweeping up the sand that guests occasionally track into the lobby. We stayed on the Mediterranean side which we would recommend unless you are more of a castaway type. All the amenities were outstanding and well maintained. We ate at most of...

Stayed at Sandals Antigua with my husband for a week in February 2017 and we had an amazing time. This was our first visit to a Sandals resort. Room – We stayed on the Caribbean side of the resort which we preferred to the Mediterranean site. It has a village feel and is set in beautiful gardens. The Mediterranean side...

So as you may know by now I never review straight after the vacation as I like to call upon the lasting impression. Vacationed at Sandals Grande Antigua in Nov/Dec of 2016 and have to say off the bat it was a great vacation. Sandals did their part is this with attentive staff and good accommodation. Now being the Caribbean...
