Having left London just before a snowflake shut down all transport links it was great to board the Virgin Atlantic flight for an escape to some winter sun, the flight was via Barbados so the relatively cheap upgrade to premium economy was worthwhile and the in flight movie selection made the time 'fly.' Upon arrival at Antigua the welcome oven...

We spent a week at the resort at the end of January. The experience can be summed up as excellent! Antigua is absolutely beautiful and the weather was perfect. We had a few 5 minute rain showers over the course of the week but that didn't hamper anything. In fact it was refreshing. Upon arriving at the airport in Antigua,...

My husband and I honeymooned at Sandals Grande Antigua January 22 - February 1, 2013. After reading many of the reviews we had some reservations but in the end were extremely pleased with our stay. We were in a Venetian Oceanview Suite on the second floor of the Cypress Tower. The room was nicely decorated and very comfortable. I loved...

Sandals Antigua is paradise the resort is just beautiful, the food was outstanding, drinks were great and the staff was great. The beach was beautiful and there was not one complaint about anything.

It's nice to be able to compare one Sandals to another. Last year, we were at Halcyon in St. Lucia, and many people recommended the Antigua property...so off we went. We stayed in the Caribbean side which as some previous reviewers had mentioned...is a tad "tired." It needs a bit of tender loving care, but nothing major. Overall, our room...
