We chose Sandals Grande Antigua after a long search for the perfect Honeymoon escape and we are so glad that we did! We had a wonderful trip. We chose not to leave the resort as we were new to traveling internationally but we don't feel like we missed out on anything as the resort had everything we could ask for....

This resort was nothing like it looks like on the web. The A/C in the rooms kept going out and were on power surges and then when the power would come back on the A/C would go back to a hot temp and the room would be roasting. We were supposed to have a private villa - already paid for...

My wife and I spent our honeymoon during the week of Jan. 27-Feb.03, 2013. We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet suite on the Mediterranean which apparently was added on recently. The room was gorgeous and view was amazing as well. Everyday we had a different fruit basket with different cheeses setup with flowers. My wife's birthday fell on the...

Its a lovely resort with lush gardens in bloom when we were there. There are two sides to the property, a newer building where we stayed and the older property with beautiful paths to walk along. The restaurants are very good but the ones that require reservations are difficult to get into. Food was good. Definitely try the jerk chicken...

We just finished our stay at Sandals Antigua. We stayed at the Caribbean side in 2006, this time we were in the Mediterranean side. Wow!! Amazing! We have stayed a total of 13 different Sandals and, of course, the Mediterranean Village did not disappoint. The grounds are impeccable, the food delicious, the service in the room outstanding and the atmosphere...

Excellent, attentive staff and a great atmosphere .. very relaxing, great beach and a beautiful location in general. Very close to the airport (about 15 minutes away) .. great food and drinks, the rooms were very modern and clean, the property was well taken care of and spacious. Would definitely recommend as a great vacation spot.

We just returned from Sandals Grande Antigua and had a great time. This was our 4th Sandals vacation and we will definitely book our 5th one next year. We split our time between the beach and the pool and enjoyed both. There are a lot of vendors on the beach that will approach you if you make eye contact. If...

First time at a Sandals. First night the tree frogs kept us awake most of the night. Take ear plugs.For a resort at this cost Wi-Fi should be included, not an extra charge. Sandals Resort pushes romance & couples why are there group sales functions taking place that shut down resturants in the evenings. Getting dinner reservations was difficult as...

This resort is awesome! We had the best room! It was newly renovated and literally 2 steps from the beach. Our room was the Bougainvillea suite which was actually cheaper and nicer than the beachfront rondovals (we were actually right next door to the rondovals)! The only downside was that since we were 2 steps from the beach there was...
