My husband and I honeymooned at the resort in July of 2012. We stayed for one week and had a spectacular time. The resort really caters to honeymooners, making you feel very special, especially with the complimentary breakfast in bed service. The rooms are great, clean, roomy, no mildew smell, and full bar/fridge...daily!! The nightly entertainment provided by the resort...

We stayed here on the second week of April. Upon arrival, be prepared for long lineups at the airport for customs in a nonAC environment. The roads are third world with very few straight stretches anywhere. Sandals Antigua is located on a lovely beach. The staff is consistently wonderful, with everyone having a very hospitable nature, unlike other non-Sandals all-inclusives....

I stayed at Sandals Grande Antigua December 2012 for a few nights on a wedding educational trip and I've got to say the beach is absolutely stunning with its white sand and aqua sea. The grounds are well manicured and the property is lovely. I was lucky enough to have the concierge service and a larger suite called 'The Grand...

The Rooms - We stayed in a Venetian Ocean-View Walk-Out on the newer Mediterranean side and loved it. We had a pretty view and a huge bathroom. The Caribbean side also...

Just back from a week at Sandals Antigua. This was our second trip to Antigua and I must say I think the second one was even better. We splurged again and got a butler suite and I must say this makes your stay absolutely awesome. Our butlers were Geoffrey, N'Kosi, and Trisha. They were AWESOME! We wanted for nothing the...

Airport transfer was chaotic. Not very well organised and we really weren't sure we were going to end up at Sandals at all. Check in process wasn't much better. Not enough staff to process the amount of people coming and going. Our room wasn't ready and we were left in reception for some time. Almost as if we were forgotten...

We spent a week here, at the beginning of may. The resort grounds are beautiful and well kept. The room was new and had a pretty nice view. We stayed in the medditerainian building. If you want a nice view be sure to stay above the 3rd floor, or it may be obstructed by palm trees. The room has a...
