Had the pleasure of staying at the Sandals Grande Antigua in June 2013 and having stayed at other Sandals in Jamaica, I wasn't disappointed. The overall level of service was great, the rooms were amazing and if you're a 'foody' like me then you're in for a treat here! I stayed in a Venetian Oceanview Suite (VS) which was located...

This is our 5th stay at this resort and we like the Sandals experience. Being Sandals Select members we assumed we were getting an upgraded (we prefer the Mediterranean Side) but that was not the case, so we complained and was moved on the second day.

Was there June 8th through the 15th. We were met at the entrance at once and offered a cool damp towel and champagne. After a brief overview we were told they were upgrading us to a nicer room, no charge! Are luggage was taken to the room, which was much larger than the one we booked and was just steps...

Great experience, would recommend for couples! Watch out for airport scam. To start the review, I want to get out of the way what was the only complaint we had on the whole trip, and we will also be sharing this directly with the resort – it mostly had nothing to do with Sandals, but there is a connection, so...

What a great time! We arrived June 9th 40 minutes early and right there I knew it was going to be an amazing stay.

Sandals isn't the cheapest place on the pocket book for many travelers. There are great perks associated with Sandals and many people mention those, I don't need to get into those. However I'd prefer to try another resort before returning to a Sandals. The food isn't 5 star by far, it ranges from cheap dinner to 3.5 star quality. I...

I know some of these reviews are long. Hopefully this one boils down some of the important stuff into one you can read in just a few minutes. 1. There really is no need to get the bag guys to get your cases at the airport but if you've got a few spares bucks and heavy cases why not. 2....
