We stayed at Sandals Grande Antigua for 10 days for our Honeymoon. We had a great time! There were great things and things we were not so impressed with. I will review pretty much every part of the vacation as I was a little more critical as it was our honeymoon. Something that I had dreamed of for awhile now....

We stayed for 7 days to celebrate our 5th Anniversary from 10/25-10/31/12. Weather was perfect (85ish). Resort staff, facilities and food were all well above average to excellent. Stingray and segway tours were great. Upgraded upon arrival which was nice. Only complaint I have were the employees at the tour desk, extremely rude and ignorant every time we dealt with...

I highly recommend this resort to relax and unwind. This was our goal for our 20th anniversary. Sandals was so kind to help us celebrate with flowers and champagne. We even got a room upgrade to concierge. We loved hanging out by the pool everyday, we floated in the water, read a book and enjoyed the swim up bar. The...

My husband and I stayed at Sandals Grand Antigua in the beginning of October! It was their slow season so the resort was pretty clam and not-over populated, which was nice. When we first got there we were upgraded to a concierge room. We stayed on the Caribbean side. Even though our room didn't have an ocean view we were...

Highly recommend this resort as a great place to relax and unwind. We had a cottage near the beach. The rooms were updated and the bathroom was a dream. They had great pools and the food was fantastic. Being an all inclusive you do not have to worry about paying each time you want to eat or do an activity....

We went to Sandals Antigua for our 5th Anniversary. We were married at the Sandals Royal Bahamian and have visited other Sandals on St. Lucia and the Bahamas. The Grande Antigua Sandals ranks right up there with the rest of them, the BEST. We stayed a couple nights in another all inclusive resort on Antigua. It was nice, but not...

My husband and I returned here since it was our honeymoon site. Place is almost twice the size and takes lots of walking from one end to the other.
