This hotel is great food service all good but they really let themselves down by charging a whopping $42.99 US dollars or one week WIFI they do this at all Sandals and Beaches resorts and it is pure greed and not necessary . Everyone complained as we all need to keep in touch with elderly parents, work, our children! None...

Let me start this by saying we are a fairly laid back, easy going couple. We arent picky, but we expect to get our money's worth. We stayed at Sandals Grande Antigua from 2/25/13-3/3/13 and had a blast. We were on our honeymoon and were able to use our wedding registry to book a private rondoval suite with private pool...

I was a bit nervous about this resort as I had read some not so great reviews. As it is so expensive to stay at a Sandals resort I was worried I would feel let down. However as soon as we arrived I knew that the bad reviews I read we're probably just from people who have nothing better to...

3rd visit to a Sandals resort. St. Lucia LaToq '09, Jamaica Whitehouse '11 previously. Alltho thoroughly enjoy those two, Grande Antigua would be our favourite so far: smaller less congested, great beach, great restaurants, great entertainment, beautiful ambiance, great beach frontwalkout accommodation, pleasant, friendly, helpful staff everywhere at all times.

This was our second vacation to Sandals Grande Antigua. We went to this resort February 2012 to celebrate our honeymoon. We enjoyed it so much that we booked again for February 2013. We knew that we would enjoy it, but we didn't think that Sandals could top our previous vacation. They certainly did, and we booked our third trip for...

Loved the hotel. We were upgraded to Honeymoon suite. One of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in during an island vacation. Staff friendly and very helpful. So far this hotel and island have been my favorites of all time.
