My husband and I were at the Sandals Grande Antigua from April13-21st. It was our first Sandals experience and I have to say that I would definitely do it again. I can't say enough good things about it. I always say that nothing is perfect so I will give both pros and cons (not many cons) to this resort. Pros-It...

First time to Sandals and I was impressed, although there are some things that I think need improving. When you arrive at Antigua, exit the airport and Sandals desk is clearly right there across the road to drive you the 15 minute ride to the hotel. I booked the Honeymoon Luxury Poolside Walkout Room in the Flamboyant Building, Carribean Grove,...

This resort lives up to it's reputation. We stayed here for two weeks April/06/13 to April/20/13. Everything was exactly how it is advertised, pictures and all. We had an excellent vacation. Everything was perfect. We ate at all eleven eateries, all were scrumptious. Drinks were all top quality. Hats off to Rosetta for keeping our room spotless. Hats off too...

This was our third stay at a Sandals Resort and it didn't disappoint. From our transfer at the airport to our final day, everything was first class. We stayed at the Mediterranean Village. Our check in was leisurely and set the tone for the week. We were given champagne and appetizers while we waited for our room, which was great!...

My husband and I just returned from Sandals Grand Antigua on Saturday, 4/20/13. I don't typically stay at All Inclusive or even large resorts. My husband and I are very committed to eating a plant base diet without added salt, oil or sugar. I contacted Donavan Dobson via email prior to our stay and he assured me they could accomodate...

It took me a while to get time to write this review. I am a travel professional and I thought the Sandals brand was generic. Wrong! I was in the main building on the concierge level and the view was fantastic. The room was large and beautiful and spotless. The food was fabulous and I can totally recommend this hotel...

My husband and I had the most amazing time at the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort. The food, drinks, and sun were all amazing! The resort is lovely and the staff was very attentive. This was our first Sandals experience and we were not disappointed. We look forward to returning soon!

We have visited Sandals Resorts 15 times including all in St Lucia, most in Jamaica and have been to Antigua on 6 occasions. All of the resorts are very good and have their own personality if that makes sense. Antigua is a beautiful resort with the flora and fauna in the Caribbean side and the elegantly appointed suites in the...

Although this was not my first island "all inclusive" experience, it was my first and probably last Sandals experience. This resort was beautiful, and the food was excellent, but something was off compared to the other resorts I have stayed at. It started with check-in. We were travelling with a group of friends, and we were all staying in the...
