I stayed here as a result of an Aveda award. I decided to extend my stay and selected the same type of room (deluxe king with plunge pool). I called to link the reservations. When we checked in, we did not receive a room with a plunge pool nor did the receptionist say we were NOT going to receive a...

Nice looking hotel, set at the foot of a leafy hill. Very open with nice views from the restaurant. The swimming pool could be bigger but the facilities there are great. Good gym and lovely, but pricey, spa. Very friendly staff throughout and good location for Jolly Harbour, Ffryes and Darkwood beaches. Walking distance to the many restaurants in Jolly...

Sugar Ridge is built on the side of a hill, so getting around is difficult. We had one of the units farthest away from the reception. We always had to take a shuttle to our room as you can't drive your car to the room. The room was excellent, clean, well furnished, with beautifully landscaped grounds. Our unit had a...

Sugar Ridge was a wonderful, quaint hotel with amazing views and a very pleasant and helpful staff. The shuttle to the beach ran whenever we requested and it was only a 5 minute drive. The hostess at the Sugar Club, Jojo, the waiter, Chris, our shuttle driver, Bryan, and the bartender, Mr. Looby, were all particularly wonderful. Carmichael's was absolutely...

Thank you for your TripAdvisor - it’s appreciated! We feel very lucky to have such a beautiful location to enjoy beautiful Antigua. But without a warm and professional team, we are just another pretty property. So – thank you for honoring our team, many of them by name. We hope to see you again sometime.

Wonderful hotel sitting on a mountain side with views of the harbor. Spacious rooms with large baloncy and plenty of steps-stairs and pathways throughout the property. The entire staff was most accommodating and very polite. We enjoyed the pool side everyday and Carleen was there to be sure you were comfortable and hydrated.
