Sandals Antigua is the most special hotel that I visited in last 2 years. The hotel staff are such courteous and graceous. St. Johns is an awesome place and the beach is so incredible, with warm and calm water.

Everything about this place is wonderful with the exception of our room. It was a standard room but was very poor condition considering the price we paid so was disappointing. But if you want a romantic break with good food beautiful scenery and great service this is the place .

My husband and I spent a week at Sandals Grande Antigua from Feb 11 – 18. We had a phenomenal time and have fallen in love with Antigua. Arrival: When you arrive at the airport in Antigua, each person will need their own immigration form – even if you are married with the same last name. Our airline only gave...

I must first preface, I am a loyal Sandals customer. I come from a perspective based on once you find something you like, why change....we have been vacationing with Sandals for over 10 yrs. visiting 7 different locations. Why are we so loyal? It is very simple, It comes down to service/service/service. Our room was the Mediterranean Plunge pool Villas...

This is our second visit to this resort, and our fourth to a Sandals. We returned here after visiting Sandals in Grenada last year. It was every bit as beautiful and as welcoming as we remembered - with the class of room that we had stayed in last time (Sunset Bluff Poolside Walkout) having enjoyed a facelift to make them...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Sandals in a club level room on the Mediterranean side of the hotel. The club level has a much better view, mini bar that includes wine/beer/liquor, and room service. We had a rainfall shower and a tub that was akin to a jacuzzi. The bed could definitely have been more comfortable and needed to...

With its beautiful grounds, gorgeous beach and excelent, friendly helpful staff this hotel should be scoring top marks but there are some things they need to address. As others have said the shade and sunbed management is frankly poor. Unless you have a butler or are willing to go to the beach while it is still dark you will not...

Sandals can normally be relied upon to give a brilliant holiday experience. This site, like all the other 6 we have stayed at, provides wonderful rooms; a wide variety of restaurants; high quality food and drinks; wonderful and friendly service; beautiful gardens; and great entertainment. During the day we like to sunbath in quiet shady areas. We have found that...

Have just returned from our 2nd visit to this Sandals - went same week last year. Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of trip although have come to the conclusion that food needs to be improved. Having spoken to Mr G he explained that flavours tend to be played down for the American taste - we would have like more Caribbean flavours...

My husband and I recently returned after spending a wonderful week at this resort. This is now one of our favourite Sandals along with SGSL and SEB. We stayed in one of the cottages on the Caribbean side and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if we returned. We thought the room was fine for us. We don't need alcohol...
