Our first experience of Sandals for our honeymoon. Our agent booked this for a special holiday experience and we "upgraded" to the Club level and had a room described as the Honeymoon suite. Our expectations having read the Sandals webpage, were high. Our flight was late departing (no fault of Sandals) and on arrivals at the airport and hotel, we...

This was the second time my wife and I visited the Sandals resort in Antigua. We stayed in a Mediterranean room. Beware, some of the rooms are very tired, in desperate need of modernisation. We returned because we enjoyed our first holiday so much. The resort is beautiful with lovely gardens. The all inclusive is very good; great choice of...

Nice big room in the Mediterranean block. Level 2, try to get level 4 or 5 for better sea views. Lovely friendly helpful staff throughout, great cocktails, very nice Surf and Turf at Barefoot by beach - or in my wife's case Surf and Surf, 2 nice lobster tails as she doesn't eat meat. The Cafe de Paris is great...

My wife & I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary in Sept 2016 & we wanted to go to Antigua. Our travel agent recommended Sandals for such a special occasion. She was right on the mark. Excellent staff, food, room, pool, beautiful beach. It was a dream vacation. Tavia (concierge team) made our whole experience extra special. She looked after every...

Me and my husband visited this hotel couple of times. We have been loyal to Sandals resorts for last 12 years. And we can see that with economy growing quality is going down. I guess when your hotel is busy you don't have to pay so much attention to details. Beach is very beautiful and water is amazing but in...
