We had an amazing time and really enjoyed our stay. The only negative I found was that if you had a honeymoon registry and you got excursions as gifts. We got a sunset cruise that was only available one day while we were there. The tour lady, Ester, wrote the wrong date down and we ended up missing our cruise....

We stayed here on the second week of April. Upon arrival, be prepared for long lineups at the airport for customs in a nonAC environment. The roads are third world with very few straight stretches anywhere. Sandals Antigua is located on a lovely beach. The staff is consistently wonderful, with everyone having a very hospitable nature, unlike other non-Sandals all-inclusives....
