This was our first visit to Sandals Antigua but not to a Sandals resort. We found the grounds well maintained, the food good and the staff amazing. Every staff member, from morning till night will always greets you and share their Sandals smiles with you. They make you feel welcome and special. No question will go unanswered. Mr. G (GM)...

Our travel agent was in touch with the resort a month prior to our trip and advised the resort that we would be on our honeymoon, so after submitting our wedding invitation and marriage...

The overall experience was positive but some issues need addressing. When arriving in Antigua boarder control is quick but once you find the Sandals desk its utter chaos!
