My husband and I just returned from a 9 day stay at sandals grande antigua. The pictures you see on the website are true. The grounds are very well kept and the rooms are very nice. The beach is nice but not very long, if you are like us and like to go for long walks on the beach. Also,...

We stayed at the Antigua Grande near the end of March. Over all very good experience. We were in a Venetian Ocean view room on the 2nd floor of the Mediterranean side. As has been stated the Mediterranean side is a hotel and the Caribbean side are small two story buildings surrounded by gardens. The check in process has a...

My daughter and I have just returned from a vacation at Sandals Resort in Antigua. We had "booked" our vacation with Nancy Finn from "My Island Getaways," and she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She planned the trip for us, made sure we were taken care of, and was always readily available for any questions/concerns about our pre-trip. If anyone...

Our second sandals vacation. The hotel, grounds, beach and our room was breathtaking. However, the disappointment was mostly in the service. Apart from a few excellent servers at the restaurants, the service was average. We bought a concierge package and made a few simple requests which took forever to follow through or were simply not done. Some of the employees...

This is our third straight year going to a Sandals and the Grande Antigua was certainly at the same (high) standard as the others. We stayed in the Caribean Village and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Will likely be going for a fourth Sandals trip next year!

My husband and I just got back from the resort and had a great time. One important factor that contributed to our experience was the attention the restaurant staff gave to my husband's gluten allergy. We started by meeting with Chef Anthony who was very helpful. At each restaurant a chef came to speak with my husband about what he...

Sandals Antigua is the most amazing place!! My husband and I went on our honeymoon here in December 2012 and are already planning out next trip back. The resort was immaculate, and so beautifully kept. Our room was super nice with a gorgeous view (We stayed in Mediterranean Village). The pool here was huge, beautiful, so clean, and the swim...

Antigua is such a lovely island. And the people are just as lovely. I couldn' think of a better resort to stay at. We've been to other Sandals resorts and just as thoes, we'd return to this island and to this resort again. The property is lush with beautiful greens and flowers. Everything is manicured throught the resort. The property...
