My recommendation is do not book to stay in this hotel until it has been completely refurbished. A tired, once grand building which had had only the basic essential repairs since it opened in the 1980's; Rooms are clean but the bathrooms lack hot water, with the shower fittings failing daily. The restaurant is disappointing - overpriced with shocking service... More

The Grand Royal Antiguan Beach Hotel is located on the outskirts of the Capital City St.John. The hotel is quiet, spacious with beautiful manicured lawns. The food was enjoyable and the front desk staff were efficient. Cons The sporting facilities such as Tennis Courts were not maintained and are overrun by vegetation. Fans were used in the rooms to supplement... More

We were anchored in Deep Bay and had booked dinner at the restaurant. At one time, I am sure this was one of the nicest hotels in Antigua. The hotel was in shambles. At first we thought this was the "Hotel California" It turned out we were the only people for dinner...which was horrible. If you anchor in the wonder... More

I spent a few days at the hotel in Feb. The building suffered badly in the storms a few years ago, and there has been a change in management. Things move very slowly on Antigua, but the new manager is determined to make this a 5-star hotel and will do all he can to make your stay comfortable.. The rooms... More

It was the worst of hotels, it was the best of hotels. I was booked to overnight at this hotel by LIAT airlines, which is a remarkably bad airline. It is about 20 minutes from the airport in what seemed like the middle of nowhere. This hotel has about 10 stories and I am sure a couple of hundred rooms.... More

After reading the reviews, I was quite nervous to go to this hotel, however I have stayed in some poor places - so I stayed open minded. We were given a room on the 7th floor which overlooked the beach - the view was stunning. I could not open the patio door as it was too heavy. The bathroom was... More

The best asset of the hotel is the beach (beautiful !) and the kindness of the manager who was always ready to accommodate some of our requests.

We were a bit nervous about this hotel having read the reviews on here but , all in all we had a lovely time. The beach is just perfect- one of the best in Antigua, with a bar and food and free sunbeds.
