The vacation was pricey, but once it was paid for, what began as a destination wedding became a wonderful wedding anniversary celebration. The cost paid for the entire stay, including airfare. No tips were allowed,except in the Spa area. We were taken to the Business office/Greeting area upon arrival, and served delicious champagne, along with fruit and snacks, The rooms...

This was our second stay at a Sandals property, our first being Sandals Montego Bay in Jamaica last year before we got married. We stayed in Antigua August 11-18. (I feel bad for anyone who was there this week with tropical storm Isaac.) I have to contribute a review because I really enjoyed reading about other people's experiences before we...

Sandals Antigua was our 5th property in 9 years. It is easily top 2 (the other was Dunns Rivers which no longer exists. The beach is great, the grounds/rooms/facilities are in great shape. Of note the food was above average with a couple meals being suprisingly excellent. We rented a car one day which was easy and fun (see later...

Another great stay at Sandals Grande. We stayed from 1 Aug to 5 Aug. 2012... To start, we got a nice welcome as soon as the shuttle pulled into the Resort, with cold towels and a couple of glass of Champagne along with some snacks. After taking care of the paperwork, we were escorted to our room (7115). We quickly...

My husband and I returned yesterday from our 9-night honeymoon stay at Sandals Grande Antigua. I thought it would be best if I provided an objective review of the resort. Before my trip, I had read the many rave reviews, and was so excited. I typically ignore the completely negative ones. For this reason, I thought it would be appropriate...

We stayed at Sandals Antigua from August 8-13th. We are returning guests, having been to properties in Jamaica (many times), Turks and Caicos and Exuma. It was our 10 year anniversary, so we decided on Antigua which was a biggie for us since we could not get there in one day there or back in terms of flights. Prior to...

We stayed at Sandals Antigua from August 4th 2012 through August 11th 2012 and came after staying a week at another resort that we absolutely loved. Since we had a great time the prior week, we had high expectations for Sandals and were genuinely excited about our stay. Check-in was disappointing, we were ushered from couch to couch by different...

Sandals Grande Antigua felt like a spring break vacation: gone wrong! No intimacy, no luxury, nothing! The grounds are beautiful and the building design was definitely well-intentioned. However, the building is not properly maintained and the management is likely the worst I have ever encountered in my lifetime. Before I start- let me reiterate that we are simple people, very...
