I stayed at Sugar Ridge from 1/14-1/18. We were originally booked at another resort but upon arrival at the other resort we were disappointed and immediately had Expedia change our hotel to Sugar Ridge. Upon our arrive at Sugar Ridge, we were kindly greeted by a lady at the front desk (I believe her name was Amaretta?) She checked us...

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Sugar Ridge. The staff was friendly and responsive. The room was clean and well appointed with a bed that was more comfortable than my own. The view from our room was lovely and we really enjoyed the sunsets from the infinity pool at the top of the hill. Our breakfast was...

My observations are listed below. Please take these as constructive, the trip could have been rated higher had everything worked properly. As well the food in the restaurant was bland and could have more flavor.

Staff was very unfriendly and there was a dead roach in my room when I arrived. Only one shuttle to get to and from room or you have to walk down a long hill. Otherwise, the rooms and view were beautiful

a very smart and elegant hotel in the Jolly Beach area, though not on the beach itself. Rooms are large for Antigua and very nicely furnished: nice views from sizable balconies. Main drawback is its location on a hill. the rooms fan upwards from the reception area and pose quite a climb. There is a shuttle, but only one, so...

Stayed for 6 nights on an Aveda free stay. Beautiful Resort! No complaints other than you pretty much have to walk or take a taxi everywhere. No shuttle for guests. Can get expensive fast. Food on the island is expensive as well. For a couple of two budget at least $500-1000 for transportation and food.

We needed to R&R desperately before Christmas and Sugar Ridge did not disappoint. We had the most fabulous interconnecting rooms for my husband and our two children. The bed was AMAZING! And the view from our room, idyllic. The service from the entertainment staff, and the bar were impeccable. Nothing too much trouble. The rooms were clean, and did I...

This was our first visit to Antigua and we loved the island: beautiful scenery and beaches; friendly people; some great restaurants, particularly Jackie O and Catherine's Cafe Plage. Sugar Ridge is a clean, modern, comfortable hotel with stylish public areas. Our room was upgraded, apparently, from a king room with plunge pool to a room with a view but no...

Joined my family in helping my son and his wife celebrate their 15th anniversary. A great romantic venue. We were shuttled by bus from the parking lot at Sugar Ridge to the restaurant perched on top of the hill. The view was great. The atmosphere was punctuated by melodious musical renditions of Christmas carols. The service was a bit slow...
