Stayed here 21st June to 5th July on a 2 week break from the UK. Our first visit to both Antigua and Sandals, would do Antigua again but maybe not at Sandals. Arrived with another couple and were sat in reception for quite a while before we received our welcoming glass of champagne. Eventually got to our room to find...

This was my first experience of Sandals, and my husband's second. He had gone 12 years ago and was raving about how good it was (He had previously gone to the Bahamas). Upon arrival, the surroundings blew me away, greeting with champagne and concierge service. All very nice. Room was excellent, bu then for what we were paying I wouldn't...

This was our 4th Sandals stay. The first in Antigua. The resort is beautiful. Everyone that worked there was so nice and took such good care of you. The service in all the restaurants was excellent. We loved all of the beach and pool service. We had a welcome from Omari, as returning guests that we will never forget. He...

We were on our honeymoon ! The treatment we received from the moment we arrived was wonderful . Attentive and welcoming. Our butlers were awesome especially Vanessa! All of the staff were happy they broke put in song for no reason. We were very happy for having the benefit of the butler service ! Food was great !

Just back from a weeks holiday at Sandals Grande Antigua resort. Wish we had a longer stay, it was perfect. I cannot fault any part of the stay. I was a little concerned as I had read comments that the carribean part was not as good as the Meditteranean but we thought it was great. One advantage of the carribean...

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary for 6 nights in the Mediterranean side. The staff did acknowledge our anniversary by sending us a happy anniversary cake and a card. That's it. Compared to our experience at other non-sandals resorts, that was disappointing. But anyway, the grounds are beautiful and well kept. We were originally booked in ground floor room...

We decided on a destination wedding/honeymoon, and Sandals Grand Antigua ended up being our selection. The resort was beautiful. It was exactly what we were looking for.
