Returned about 6 days ago from our honeymoon at this great Sandals in Antigua! I can say I read many of the reviews on here before going and most are good but obvious concerns, I do think it helps to be prepared for a few things like the vendors on the beach and mosquito's are the main two that stand...

My family and spent six days (Oct. 20-26, 2012) at the Sandals Grande Antigua, and had three separate rooms. Having travelled internationally on several occasions I was cautious and placed my valuables in the room safe. Unfortunately neither of my adult children have travelled that often and did not. Both of them had money taken, $80.00 in one room $100.00...

I'm so sorry that your experience at our resort did not quite meet your expectations because of this unfortunate incident. As you may know, we take theft very seriously at our resorts and while it is not a regular occurrence, we still make the necessary provisions to ensure that there is not a repeat. I certainly hope this matter did...

I just returned from a vacation at Sandals Grande Antigua. While I was happy to get away and had a great time with the 3 other couples we went away with, there were many areas where I found the resort to be lacking. Things that need attention: -The concierge never answered the phone. On one occasion when I no one...

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Grande Antigua. We arrived on Friday 12th October and unfortunately tropical storm Raphael arrived with us.

This was our 2nd visit to this resort, 7th to Sandals. Last year we stayed in the Caribbean side, this year we upgraded and stayed in the Beachfront Rondoval(butler). If you are looking for a suite, this isn't for you. But if you are looking for a beachfront room, this would be the room. The rooms aren't that big but...

We stayed for the last 2 weeks in October. We spent hours researching before we booked, and had previously stayed at the Sandals Grande in St. Lucia (which we loved). This was also our WeddingMoon. The wedding portion of our vacation was perfect. The grounds are very well maintained and the staff are very pleasant and friendly. This is the...

The included ride from the airport was scary. The driver drove at high rates of speed barley missing cars and going through stop signs never slowing down to look for traffic. The resort at Sandals is nice. The service at the restaurants are so so. At the buffet breakfast we got up to go up for seconds and came back...

Our experience was mixed from our week stay, Oct. 13-20th. Accomodation: We stayed in the Cypress tower, Mediterranean side, room faced the ocean and was very nice. Its highlight was the bathroom: clean, large, with his and her sinks, lots of storage space, large soaker tub with jets, spacious shower stall. Minibar comes stocked with liquors, wines, beer, soft drinks,...
