We stayed at the Sandals in Antigua from April 6, 2013 through April 13, 2013. The positives were the landscaping and the bartending, that's about it. Antigua is a beautiful island and the people we ran into downtown and on an excursion were great. The problem was where we stayed. We are ordinary, hard-working people, not stuck up snobs. That...

We recently returned from our fifth visit to Sandals Antigua. We have fallen in love with the resort and many of the staff members!! It is truly like returning home for us each time we visit. The grounds are beautiful, the beach is very clean. All of the restaurants are excellent and we enjoy the variety each has to offer....

My wife and I booked our honeymoon through Sandals back in November 2012. The gentleman who assisted us in the booking process was helpful and informative. As we arrived to Sandals we were a bit disappointed when we were told we were on the 5th floor and we were promised at booking that we would be placed on the 6th...

The resort Been to all the Sandals resorts except for Emerald Bay. Antigua is no doubt the prettiest. It is a large resort that is divided between the Caribbean village and the Mediterranean village, but it is easy to walk from one end to the other without much stress. We stayed in the beautiful Cypress Tower which has luxury bathrooms,...

We are diamond level Sandals guests and spent our free week at this resort last year and fell in love with it. Sandals Grande Antigua definitely blends the best of both worlds: the expansiveness of White House (like the restaurants, zero entry pool) on the Mediterranean side and the coziness of Royal Caribbean on the Caribbean side. We were there...

My husband and I had the most amazing honeymoon at Sandals Grande Antigua. I would highly recommend a couples massage from the Red Lane spa to start out your relaxation! We stayed in the Carribean garden and absolutely loved it. The food was amazing! Check out the Sushi bar and Mario's! Ok Corral was less than impressive but everything else...

We recently returned from a terrific one week stay at Sandals Grande Antigua (Mar 30-Apr 6, 2013). Our ROOM was the Romeo and Juliet Penthouse Suite with Butler Service in the Mediterranean Village (6th floor). The Suite was beautiful with a true ocean view. The bedroom was separated from the living area by double doors. For the first few nights...

From handling my food allergy to the food quality I can't complain. Sandals atmosphere was fantastic and I had no issues. There was plenty of entertainment and things to do. We were treated very well not like some resorts you can get overlooked. It would be nice if all rooms had room service. We actually went September 2009
