This is similar yet completely different than the 10 different Sandals we have been too (staying at 5 of them- this being the 5th). So, I will just do pros and cons. People to get immediate recognition would be Dillion from Soy, Sammy from Barefoot, Shamika from Travel and Loyalty, and Violet from Eleanors. Thank you for making this a...

FIRST - This is a beautiful island that I would definitely visit again! We booked the Mediterranean One Bedroom Butler Villa Suite. We were in suite 909. Do not plan on getting comfortable if you are sitting in the living room. It is at best outdoor furniture they have placed in the living room. The cushions are in need of...

All of the staff are friendly (some felt like family), the grounds are perfectly maintained,room was neat and clean and the food was as we expected. Only a few problems: 1) Out of...

I am writing this review currently staying in a rondoval room 304. It's on the beachfront with an amazing view of the glorious beach. I'm not a great swimmer so when I say glorious beach it really is with calm seas. As a poor swimmer it's amazing. People complain about vendors just be polite and they leave you alone. The...

The whole experience was fantastic. Our daughter's wedding was so well organised - we were looked after from start to finish - no stress or worry. The staff were great and friendly, food was lovely, as was the service.

Best vacation I have ever taken. The entire staff was extremely accommodating; It felt like a home away from home! The wait staff was excellent; the food was magnificent and the overall hospitality was just marvelous! I would recommend Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa to any couple that want to get away to extreme pleasure!

We stayed in a Caribbean walkout club level suite. Great location. Great ambiance. The service was impeccable. The food was top quality. The people could not have been nicer or friendlier. Absolutely beautiful and relaxing.
