Antigua is a fantastic island, friendly and inviting. This is our 4th visit to Sandals, and it now feels like we are going home each time. The staff are so friendly and do all they can to ensure you have all you need to relax and enjoy your stay.

Let me start by saying that scuba diving with Sandals Antigua has had some just awful reviews, and in my opinion, quite unfairly so. I have nothing but good things to say, and my views are based upon my dive qualifications (Master Scuba Diver, PADI) and experience (over 230 logged dives). Several anecdotes probably sum things up. The first is...

We first stayed at Sandals Grande Antigua in February 2012, and were so impressed, we returned on 8th February this year. Out of all the Sandals properties we have stayed at, this is without question our favourite, for several reasons. When we arrived in 2012, we were greeted by their ‘Director of Guest Services’, a certain Donovan Dobson, who immediately...

The beauty of the resort is breathtaking. The grounds are well designed and blooming in a variety of colorful flowers. The beach is long and there are plenty of umbrellas, lounges, and covered chaises to lie down and sunbathe or go for a swim in the warm, torquiose colored sea. Our room was in an attached cottage with a patio....
