This was an incredible resort. This was our 6th Sandals trip, but first time to Antigua Resort. The grounds are incredible. The restaurants were very very good with the exception of Drunken Duck. We had appetizers there and sat at the bar and the bartender seemed like we were bothering him. He just wanted to have a conversation with one...

First of all this was our favorite Sandals resort. I guess until you actually have a problem you do not realize that you are just another number to this resort! An issue came up our 3rd day with a well at the property.(8th Sandals visit) All 4 of our stays here we have booked the Caribbean ocean front walk out...

The hotel decor is dated in Tuscany style and really needs modernising. There were plenty of restaurants to chooses from. I found the food was very acceptable, especially the breakfasts. No so keen on the English Pub grub, not very authentic. Ice cold mushy peas with your fish 'n chips? Good grief! My main gripe is the lousy service I...

This place was amazing. I do not know how some people here could give it a bad review. The grounds were immaculately kept and the staff went above and beyond to assist you with WHATEVER you needed! They were amazing, better than any other Sandals we have been to. Loved the Drunken Duck. Staff there was amazing. Ciara and Mario...

I was shocked to be exposed to this environment for five days! I was ready to get out of there after the second day. As previous writers mentioned, room was not ready, we were exhausted and just wanted access to our suitcase but had already been taken to our room while we waited wearily to get in. Some staff is...

This was our second visit to a Sandals resort and it didn't disappoint once again. A great range of restaurants and bars to choose from and the staff were very friendly. It was Reunion Week when we were there (which we didn't know about) and there were extra activities throughout the week which added to the already great time we...

Beautiful just lovely in every way we highly recommend Sandals Antigua! My husband and I felt like we were extremely welcomed there and loved the Barefoot by the sea surf and turf so romantic! The water so blue and a little bit wavy will always be on our minds! We live in FL but nothing compares to Antigua! Thank you...

Sandals Grand Antigua proclaims to be the most romantic place in the world. The check in is draconian. 2 hours in a holding cell. They play the most awful loud music all day. Try and avoid the JCB running over you on the beach. Or the relentless lucky lucky men. I felt sorry for the people getting married. Especially when...
