Where do I begin with the positives the first thing I would do if anyone is booking a Sandals stay is book through Nancy Finn from Island Getaway. She is a Top Agent with Sandals and although I am very leery about booking someone I do not know face to face. Nancy and Island Getaway proved to be my all...

The beach was crystal clear and had beautiful white sand. The facility was gorgeous and the rooms were very clean. But...It is like pulling teeth to get someone to answer the main line. Every time we called it would just ring and ring. We had a gift registry, and two different cruises were purchased for us. We had a sunset...

We very recently got married and decided on a whim with the help of our travel agent that we would go to Antigua for our honeymoon. There are many things that we did love about this resort but unfortunately it is just not quite our style. BUT we didn't let that spoil our trip! The resort itself is absolutely beautiful!!...

The excursions were amazing. The food was great. The entertainment was amazing. The views from the room we stayed in were breathtaking. Everyone that worked at the resort did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.

We are seasoned Sandals travellers so for our honeymoon decided to do a split break at Carlisle Bay and Sandals Antigua (see my Carlisle Bay review to compare). Firstly, we did have an amazing honeymoon and loved our stay at Sandals, but for us Sandals Bahamas or Sandals Grande St Lucian were more impressive, but also by the fact that...

Durante il mio soggiorno ho riscontrato una grave mancanza nel servizio. Ogni qual volta lo shampoo e il bagnoschiuma finiva, non mi veniva sostituito se non su mia richiesta. Ho dovuto richiedere personalmente il trattamento honeymoon, poichè lo avevano dimenticato. Il vassoio sporco della colazione in camera è stato lasciato fuori nella veranda per 2 giorni, fino a quando io...

My wife and I spent a week at this resort from 8/3-8/10/2013. We have been to a few of the Sandals and this rates as one of our best experiences. The property felt a lot like the Whitehouse in Jamaica. We were in a walkout in the Mediterranean side. I normally would shy away from this type of accommodation opting...
