Stayed with family members here in December. We booked 3 rooms, loved the place. Excellent staff, super bedrooms. Jolly Harbour was within walking distance and Vaughan's beach shuttle service was also a great help.

I recently traveled to Sugar Ridge for a family vacation to escape the terrible weather in NYC. From the moment we got there we were treated like royalty with the most accommodating and friendly staff. They truly made our experience unforgettable by making sure we as comfortable and happy as could be. We dined at Carmichael's with a breathtaking view...

I traveled with my extended family and baby to Sugar Ridge and we were shown such kindness and attention by the staff at Sugar Ridge. Terrence and Jolie made sure that every detail was attended to with our large party.

Just returned from a wonderful holiday in Antigua. The Sugar Ridge Hotel is a cool retreat, upscale, modern and excellent, gracious service from upper management to the grounds crew. The rooms are comfortable with great beds! The bathroom is well appointed and spacious but has only a shower unless you request a room with a plunge pool. Then the plunge...

Great views - Great service - Great Sunsets - the only thing that could have made Sugar Ridge better Is if it was on a beach But i'll say it's just a short bit away... The shuttle run by Ras Vonn took you to pretty much any beach within the vicinity and believe me that's a it of great beaches....

We have just returned from 9 nights at Sugar Ridge. We chose Sugar Ridge because it was a small boutique hotel and would therefore never seem crowd, which it never did. We stayed on a B&B basis which did allow us to go out in the evening. The hotel is located on the west coast, off the main road between...

I stayed here for a business trip and enjoyed my stay. Although Sugar Ridge is not on the water, they compensate for it with their lovely grounds and frequent shuttles to the beach. The beach is a very short drive away, in total it is around a mile away. I did the walk and my only suggestion is to not...

We stayed at Sugar Ridge for 2 nights in February, so it was peak season. We would not stay there again BUT must hasten to say that is not because this is a bad hotel, its just a personal thing.
