Sandals used to be the place to be seen, a luxury holiday in the best areas. Sandals Antigua, it's too big, too crowded, not enough sun beds by the pools or on the beach. Butlers claim sunbeds for the high payers, leaving towels on the beds before 0600. Empty bottles and cans litter the area around the beach and on...

The staff are excellent and make the place. The grounds are very pretty and the food options are good. The property is 9 or 10 years old and you can tell, there is quite a bit of wear and tear in the rooms and it doesn't feel as luxurious as it could. I had read complaint that the food was...

My 3rd visit to a Sandals/Beaches resort in the last 7 years so I'm no expert but I do think there was a bit of a difference on this visit. The positives include the accommodations, housekeeping in our room, and the beach. It's also only 20 min from the airport. In my opinion the food quality, freshness, menu options,and preparation...

Stayed at Sandals for 4 days Jan. 5th-8th 2017. Quick tip, when you arrive at Antigua airport the Sandals desk is outside across the road last desk. We had a club level walk-out pool side room 806 in the Caribbean village. So quiet, the pool was always empty & perfect for the late afternoon. The beach...small, but clean soft sand,...

Just returned from a fabulous vacation. We have travelled to several other resorts to include Excellence, Secrets, and Royallton just to name a few. This was our first Sandals vacation and first time in Antigua. With that being said I have a lot to compare this to. Airport was quick to process through. The Sandals transfer is right across the...

This was our first visit to a Sandals resort, and as we have booked our second you can guess we were happy. The relaxation started as soon as we arrived, having confirmed which cases were ours they were whisked away to our Rondoval by the team, and we were given a refreshing cool towel and an even more refreshing glass...

This was our 1st trip to a Sandals resort as we have stayed at major resorts every year since 2007 and travel with 2 kids who are now 19 and 28. We have no complaints and plan to visit Grenada in 2018. Diving is the main reason we travel. The arrival at the new Byrd airport was easy and Sandals...

This was our first Sandals and our first trip to Antigua and we absolutely loved both. We had a Caribbean deluxe room which is a semi detached cottage and ours was located between both the Caribbean and Mediterranean sides, opposite the main Caribbean pool so it was a very short hop to get a drink to enjoy on our patio....

Great place .... great staff. Winter is a great time of year to visit ... if you like sun, water, food, drink, friendly guests, friendly staff, and superb service .... you must go. Do the sunset cruise and waive runners for sure.

We'd never done this all inc thing before so not entirely sure what to expect. Firstly location. I mean the beach is beautiful. Incredible for sunsets. But not somewhere you can just pop out somewhere else to if you fancy a change of scene or a little normality. It's a 45 min walk to St. John's which isn't well pathed,...
