My husband and I made the trek to Antigua in search of rest, relaxation, pampering and a little excitement on our Honeymoon. We found everything we were looking for at Sandals Grande Antigua. We stayed in a villa with a private pool and spa and had two butlers assigned to us. Our suite was just steps from the main pool...

Been a trip advisor member for years. don't review as many as I should but so often the reviews are so right that it seems unnecessary. We have stayed at four sandals properties before. As a brand it does a lot right. Not here in Antigua where they run the hotel for the benefit of staff not guests. The hotel...

We had an awesome time at Sandals Grande Antiqua November 5th-11th, 2012! Everyone was so friendly at the Resort. Our butler service was wonderful, Maureen and Cecil went out of their way to make sure our stay would be memorable. I think the money we spend on this trip was well worth it!

My wife and I stayed at Sandals Grande Antigua from Nov. 4th - 11th. This was our first stay in Antigua and we loved every second of it.
