Let me start by saying I was on edge after reading so many negative comments about the disrepair of the hotel, the aggressiveness of the beach vendors and the rudeness of the hotel staff. BUT - I don't think all those whiners stayed at the same hotel I did and I have no idea how anyone could say anything negative...

Just back from 7 nights at this resort. beautiful location on the beach. Stayed in the Mediterranean section but on the first floor. No view of the ocean. The rooms were very nice but the air conditioning unit was noisy. Large tub and shower, fridge, small balcony and beds were very comfortable. The biggest complaint was the lack of service....

The bars and restaurants are well staffed and the service is excellent. Beach is cleaned daily, and the entrances back into the resorts are staffed 24 hrs a day...

We visited Sandals Grande Antigua on 04/01/13 - 18/01/13. This was our fourth visit, last year we tried St.Luca, but this has always been our favourite. Everything was mostly as we remembered from 2011 however the restaurant food standards have dropped somewhat. With the exception of Bayside we found that the menus were very repetitive especially Eleanors, which was always...
