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...

My husband and I got married at sandals grande antigua on 12-12-12 and it was perfect! We stayed for a total of 10 days and couldn't have been more pleased with everything. The staff was very friendly. The butler service was beyond what we expected. We had so much fun and will definitely go to sandals again next year. Even...

This is a beautiful resort with a great location, but everything else was just average. We were excited to visit because we heard it was one of the top rated Sandals resorts. The food was average at best. We had a few really good meals, but mostly the food and beverages were inconsistent and the staff was crabby and never...

From the moment we got there it was "PERFECT" IN EVERY WAY. The rooms, décor, staff, food, service, weather, beach, pools, entertainment. We are going back next year for sure. We would highly recommend it to anyone.

This was our third vist to a Sandals property. The others were in St Luia and Jamacia. Whilst this property is magnificent it just didn't do it for us. Staff were helpful...grounds lush and well kept. Food was a bit of a let down if i were to compare with the other properties in the group we have been too....
