We have visited quite a few all inclusive resorts but this is one of the nicest we have stayed at. The food, atmosphere and service were much better than average. This one offers a lot of value for the money. The overall setting is visually pleasing and the view from the rooms (we upgraded to the bay view room and... More

If you are looking for a paradise beach with calm clear waters, white salt like sand and plenty of privacy, then this is definitely the resort for you!!!!! If you want to spend all your time in the hotel complex and not on the beach - go elsewhere!!! POSITIVES 1.Beach/ Lagoon - a most unusual but spectacular combination which results... More

We stayed at the RA for the first 2 weeks of May. I have to say it was probably one of the best holidays I have ever had, however the hotel and staff were appalling. The people we met there made it great. We used the beach during the day, and left the resort in the evening. The smell in... More

Stayed for 2 weeks at Christmas 2003 and had a fantastic time. The hotel is in a good location with beautiful, well kept grounds but the buildings are generally a bit tired and in need of some refurbishment. We booked an all inclusive Ocean view room which gave great views from the balcony and you could watch the cruise ships... More

Before going to the Royal Antiguan (RA), my girlfriend & I read literally all the reviews here, so we thought we had a pretty good idea of what to expect on our vacation. First, some background. We're in our mid-thirties, and I like activities while my girlfriend just likes to chill on the beach or by the pool. Neither of... More

The Royal Antiguan greets you with a weather beaten somewhat white building and a rum punch. Not knowing what to expect I had called ahead and asked for rose pedals and a bottle of champagne as I was looking to get engaged. When i got to my room i saw what looked like a welcoming basket with a card that... More

Myself,my wife and our two children stayed at the resort for only one week. We wanted to stay for longer. The hotel was great, but did need some attention.
