The resort is gorgeous, the beaches are amazing, the food is fantastic and the entertainment is exciting. I recommend this resort for honeymooners and anyone that feels the love in the air but you will be surrounded by couples looking...

We upgraded to the Honeymoon Hibiscus suite which includes a Concierge Service. The room we were allocated was opposite the Volleyball Court & close to a small swimming pool. Both had daily afternoon activities which were quite noisy, if you wanted to sit & relax on the balcony! The Concierge service, apart from checking us in & showing us to...

We spent a day here while visiting Antigua and would definitely stay here if we went back to the island. We were very impresses with the service and helpfulness of all the employees and management. The meals and drinks were all of excellent quality. They have separate pools for each room section which were quiet and relaxing and the main...

This review is long coming but here it goes. My wife and I visited Sandals Antigua 2 years ago and completely loved it. This was our fourth Sandals trip and so far our favorite. Customs was really quick and then a 10-15 minute ride to the resort. We were upgraded to a concierge room on our second day because of...

Absolutely beautiful resort. This was our 3rd visit to a Sandals resort and our favourite so far, although all have been wonderful. We loved the evening meals at the Barefoot and Japanese restaurants. The beach was absolutely amazing and the grounds, especially on the Carribean side were beautiful. The turquoise waters took my breath away. Make sure to go out...

Sandals Grande Antigua was a magical place! My wife and I went there for our honeymoon. We were so shocked at how nice everyone was!! One standout staff member was Shaunte. She was so sweet and kind to us and always made a point to come say hi when we were around. She also is a great game show host!...

Food was awesome. Very difficult getting seating around pool or beach. Be very cautious when using the laundry service. Wrecked a 150.00 blouse. Brought back in bags not hangars. Returned blouse 4 days later with no explanation melted together. Handled hurricane and flight canceling terrible. Told us to pack and change rooms twice. Our room rate was 250 a night...
