This is our third straight year going to a Sandals and the Grande Antigua was certainly at the same (high) standard as the others. We stayed in the Caribean Village and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Will likely be going for a fourth Sandals trip next year!

My husband and I just got back from the resort and had a great time. One important factor that contributed to our experience was the attention the restaurant staff gave to my husband's gluten allergy. We started by meeting with Chef Anthony who was very helpful. At each restaurant a chef came to speak with my husband about what he...

Sandals Antigua is the most amazing place!! My husband and I went on our honeymoon here in December 2012 and are already planning out next trip back. The resort was immaculate, and so beautifully kept. Our room was super nice with a gorgeous view (We stayed in Mediterranean Village). The pool here was huge, beautiful, so clean, and the swim...

Antigua is such a lovely island. And the people are just as lovely. I couldn' think of a better resort to stay at. We've been to other Sandals resorts and just as thoes, we'd return to this island and to this resort again. The property is lush with beautiful greens and flowers. Everything is manicured throught the resort. The property...

The resort in itself was gorgeous. Phenomenal, actually. Lush gardens, beautifully kept. Just immaculate. The food was amazing and so were the drinks. The rooms were good, we stayed on the Mediterranean Side. (Highly recommend this over the Caribbean side). Med Pool was amazing. HUGE and stunning and the bartenders were very friendly. Shout to Althea and Maria-Louise for making...

This review is a little late, but needs to be done. We stayed here for a week in Feb. 2012. We were so relaxed and enjoyed our time that we booked a return visit for this year at the Soon Come Back desk. Unfortunately we had to make some changes to our plans for this year and instead of 10...

Fabulous resort. Friendly staff. Our first stay at a Sandals resort and we will look at Sandals resorts in preference to others from now on. Rooms were a bit smaller than at some of the other resorts we have stayed at , but fit, finish and quality of furniture and fixtures was superior. The gardens were magnificent, right down to...

My wife and I wanted to take our third trip to Sandals and our travel agent, Nancy Finn @ Myislandgetaways.com recommended Antigua. What an awesome recommendation! The weather was outstanding(eventhough the forecast predicted some rain)! The service was unbelievable. The food was great from both an options and a quality standpoint. Our concern going to our vacation was the fact...

We spent a very nice 7 days at Sandals. We were greeted by friendly staff with appetizers and cool drinks. Our room was clean and well stocked. Three problems that I think Sandals could work on regarding the bathroom. The lighting was dark, no step or stool in shower for us older folks, and the bathroom window had no glass,...
