My husband and I honeymooned at Sandals in Antigua 20 years ago. We decided to return for our 20th anniversary. The resort has grown quite a bit since the last time we were there, but it hasn't lost of of the charm, the romance, or the fun. This resort is the perfect place for couples to party with friends or...

My husband, my sister, her husband and myself are currently visiting Antigua and staying at the Sandals Grande. We were so excited for this vacation however when we arrived and saw our accommodations (Mediterranean Honeymoon Oceanview Club Level Suite) we were VERY disappointed to say the least. The rooms are not very clean, dusty and worn. We have been to...

I wanted a vacation where I didn't have to do a thing if I didn't want to. It was my first time to a Sandals so I had lots of expectations considering all the advertising you see about them. I thought the hotel was nice, we stayed in the Caribbean Village and we had a Club level room that overlooked...

We stayed in a Rondoval with private pool sanctuary, number 308. I was thrilled with the pool- it got sun almost all day so it was always warm. You get quite a bit of foot traffic passing by, but they have hung view-blocking panels on the fence for added privacy. We had a rainfall shower over the huge tub, with...

As always Sandals is a good experience for someone who wants to relax with no preoccupations. Our room at the Mediterranean " tower" was a good one with a lot of amenities. But the all resort with the exception of the new area is needing renovation. Looks like those resorts of the sixties with concepts of more than 50 years....

Sandals Antigua was fab! The staff there really do go the extra mile to ensure that all guests have a super holiday. Everywhere was immaculately clean - thank you to the maid for room 222. The food was wonderful - lots of different choices. Teddy the chef in the Japanese restaurant is a spectacle to behold - what fun :)...

We have visited Sandals each November, 2 weeks each time, for the last 5 years, and are booked to return again this November. It is a great hotel. We have been to Sandals Grande St. Lucia, and Beaches in Turks, and while they are both terrific, the Sandals in Antigua is the one we like best. It is located on...
