This was our first experience of a Sandals vacation, and on balance will not be the last. We took a top level suite in the Mediterranean village and enhanced this by booking Butler service. The holiday was for 14 days. Enough has been written about the total inclusivity of Sandals resorts elsewhere and on their website, by and large this...

Great trip, excellent service, top shelf staff. Food was good for island fair. Breakfast was very good. Lets face it the if the service is good the trip is good. "The wine and liquor is not top shelf by any streatch of the imagination". But a great trip I recomend Sandals Grand Antigua. Spa is superburb!

My husband and I had never been on a holiday before..and we are from rainy BC, Canada, so I insisted on getting married somewhere sunny. My travel agent suggested this Resort, and although I was a bit nervous about the size, we decided to go with her instinct. She was SOOOOO right!! It WAS PERFECT. We got a beachfront rondoval,...

My husband and I have been to several Sandals Resorts, including St. Lucia Grande, Negril, Royal Caribbean, Royal Bahamian and Whitehouse. This was our first trip to Antigua and the best experience we've had. Through our travel agent, Mike McHugh of Dreammakers Vacations, we booked non-stop flights out of JFK, and a six night stay at the resort. Mike made...

Just arriving home from our honeymoon this past week, stayed at sandals Antigua resort. First off the resort itself is very nice, tropical and the staff is very friendly. Upon being guided to our "upgraded" room my husband and I were both extremely disappointed and couldn't imagine what we were being upgraded from??! This resort is by no means cheap...

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Sandals Grande Antigua which is a beautiful and well maintained resort in a perfect location. The beach is fine white sand which slopes gently into the Caribbean Sea with any small amounts of seaweed cleared by the hotel on a daily basis. Despite the comments of other travellers I found...

My husband and I spent 5 days at this resort's Mediterranean Village in early March. We have been to three other Sandals resorts, and this one came up a bit short in our experience - predominantly due to the quality of service.

I've been to Bahamas, Barbados Aruba and St Lucia, I must say this resort has surpassed all other hotels I've stayed at. The food was excellent, breakfast, lunch dinner or snacks, buffet or a la carte everything was delicious. The staff was sweet, funny, and always in a good mood. The beach was perfect, I couldn't ask for anything more!...

So it's taken me a while to write this review, because I wasn't sure if I was even going to do it. I had the absolute worst experience at Sandals Grande Antigua during our honeymoon from March 11-17th. When we first arrived (around 4pm) we were told our room wasn't ready, and to have some lunch and come back. I...
