It's hard to write a review when all you have to say is good things. But there are things you should know before you pick a place for your vacation. we came here for our honeymoon. A few months back we went on a vacation through a website deal and it was one of the most awful experiences of my...

We are still here, giving you a play by play of our experiences. Thanks to our $43.00usd Internet wifi package. * for the price of a penthouse butler suite why is Internet an extra charge?

My husband and I honeymooned in Antigua from 12/17/12 through 12/22/12 and it was simply amazing. We arrived around 1 PM on Monday afternoon, and were transported from the airport to the resort. This process was smooth and stress-free, as the kiosk is located right near the airport exit. The trip was about 10-15 minutes in length. When we arrived,...

I was really looking forward to this break with my partner. We did have an initial bad experience with Sandals at their Nigril resort a few years back when the room was not up to standard and we were moved to another room. But that is old history...but not forgotten. First of all the price : £1800 each for flights...

We got married 12/12/12 and it was fantastic. We loved every second of our trip! Yes there were pesky beach vendors but they weren't pushy. I did get bitten by bugs but that's my fault I forgot to wear bug-spray. Shout out to Sasha our wedding coordinator who was great! Marion did our pics and they were great also. Food...

I'm rather torn in writing this review because the resort is simply beautiful and yet not everything else measures up to a 5 star rating. We booked a standard room (orchid deluxe - walk out to a small pool) and arrived on December 8th. The check in was quick but rushed. The room was clean, simple and nicely decorated. This...

Our vacation at this Sandals resort was wonderful in so many ways. We were picked up at the airport and the drive to the resort was about 30mins or so. We stayed in the Almond Tower in a Concierge Oceanview room. It had a nice balcony which we used quite often to gaze out at the beautiful azure ocean and...

We LOVE Sandals/Beaches properties, in fact, this is our 17 stay with them, the 2nd on this island. We had a beautiful, Monticarlo room, #7510, overlooking the the resort & beach, though a palm tree obstructed part of our view. As a Diamond Guest, our resort check-in was done in our room, Karen B. leading the way with smiles and...
