This was my husband and my first experience at a Sandals, let alone all inclusive resort. No honeymoon or anniversary, just a nice 5 night get away from the bitter cold of New Jersey. Its hard to summarize everything in one review so i will break it down. The beach - Phenomenal. Very clear, very warm and calm. We are...

This was our fifth visit to this resort.I think it's about time to move on. I stayed 5 nights this time extending the Labor day weekend in 2016. Overall this trip, the resort as a whole didn't seem as well maintained (or as clean) as on earlier trips. We actually saw a roach in our room (just inside of the...

My wife and I stayed here recently and can’t say enough nice things about the staff here. Our experience with everyone from our initial greeting to our departure was sincere and pleasant. Any perceived issue was immediately handled, like a departure mistake on our part. The main pool is large enough and not crowded, the fire pits across the property...

We've been to two other Sandals properties ( Halcyon Beach, St. Lucia and South Shore (previously Whitehouse), Jamaica), so had certain expectations when we booked Antigua. The beach, the grounds and the Sandals employees all lived up to those expectations. These were the high points of our stay. We booked a "poolside" room and ended up in #630. Not only...

We visited SGA in March, this is our second stay at a Sandals,( first being Sandals Halycon in St Lucia) We enjoyed the short ride to the the resort, friendly welcome and quick check-in. We stayed on the Caribbean side in an entry level room, it was small, clean, comfortable and quiet. The Caribbean pool was right across from us...

Resort was clean, staff were over the top friendly, and the food was great! The weather was great the whole while we were there and we took in as much as we could in 7 days! With the resort being so large, it never seemed crowded and it was always easy to find a seat at a restaurant, or get...

some of the serviing staff were inattentive, slow and not friendly. Some just waked up placed what they had on the table then turned and walked away. No smile, small talk or asked if we needed anything else. I was there as a single and I was treated like I didn't exist or matter. When I said I was alone...

Visited Antigua in February and loved the island and resort. The Sandals is a must stay at for couples. The service was fantastic, food excellent and the accommodations were top notch. Staff were knowledgeable, friendly and highly professional.

We stayed at the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa March 4th - 11th of this year. This beach was one of the nicest ones I have ever been on. The sand is like baby powder, I absolutely loved it! As far as beach chairs, we never had a problem, however, there were times we may have gotten the last...
