Spent 6 nights April 28-May 4th/13 at Sandals Grande Antigua....Like here, its spring and everything is in full bloom. As we pulled away from the airport I looked back and could not believe the colours in the trees and bushes! The airport is nothing to brag about and its a very good thing that the new one is well underway....

We stayed at Sandals from April 13-20, 2013. This was our first Sandals vacation and all we can say is Wow! It was worth every penny. I can't imagine staying anywhere else now. Food, Service, grounds, pools, staff, nightlife were all perfect. Our room was also great. I would highly recommend this resort to all.
