My husband and I went to Sandals Antigua for our honeymoon I. August for 10 days. We reserved a Rounduval room with private pool, and after reading the reviews here and making a special request, we ended up with the smallest room where the pool is next to a walkway. So we talked to our butler and the hotel upgraded...

The resort and staff are just the best. Food and drink could not be better. Already have booked my return trip. Can't wait to go back. We stayed on the Caribbean side, the Mediterranean side is too much like a hotel, just does not feel like you are in the tropics.

We have stayed in many fine places in the Caribbean over the years. The Sandals Grande Antigua is one of the very best, on a very beautiful island. Sandals is an excellent organization. You always know what to expect so that there are rarely any surprises. We have stayed in Sandals Grande Antigua, as well as Beaches (a Sandals property)...

Words cannot explain how fabulous this resort is. The food is out of this world, the rooms are beautiful, even if you dont have a butler! Will always choose Sandals first when planning future holidays

We are still here, giving you a play by play of our experiences. Thanks to our $43.00usd Internet wifi package. * for the price of a penthouse butler suite why is Internet an extra charge?

My husband and I honeymooned in Antigua from 12/17/12 through 12/22/12 and it was simply amazing. We arrived around 1 PM on Monday afternoon, and were transported from the airport to the resort. This process was smooth and stress-free, as the kiosk is located right near the airport exit. The trip was about 10-15 minutes in length. When we arrived,...

I was really looking forward to this break with my partner. We did have an initial bad experience with Sandals at their Nigril resort a few years back when the room was not up to standard and we were moved to another room. But that is old history...but not forgotten. First of all the price : £1800 each for flights...

We got married 12/12/12 and it was fantastic. We loved every second of our trip! Yes there were pesky beach vendors but they weren't pushy. I did get bitten by bugs but that's my fault I forgot to wear bug-spray. Shout out to Sasha our wedding coordinator who was great! Marion did our pics and they were great also. Food...
