My husband and I visited Sandals Grande Antigua March 16th for 11 nights and stayed in the Carribean Grove. Having said we were disappointed with the resort, I do not feel able to say that it is average, because it would be unfair to say that. We were advised by the driver on leaving the airport that Wednesdays, Fridays and...

What an amazing property! Being that we are returning guests, we got upgraded from concierge in the carib side to concierge to the med side. Our room was absolutely amazing! We had a large bathroom with tub and a large patio with sun beds. The drinks at the med pool were great, although make sure to ask for Absolut specifically...

When we arrived at the airport we had a bit of difficulty finding the pickup location that would take us to the resort, and when we did the workers were not very verbal; they pointed mostly and talked to each other so my husband and I were confused if we were even on the right vehicle. When we arrived we...

My husband and I were a bit concerned about the reviews for this property. How can people staying in the same resort have such differing views??? The first 3 days we kept priding outselves on checking off the list of things people had been complaining about as non existent. The last 4 days, we kept saying -ok,now I get it....
