This hotel is amazing. It is set in a private part of the island. Each room is very cozy and very romantic. My new husband and I were never disturbed. The staff are wonderful.

We have just returned from a great stay at Sugar Ridge. OK so it's a bit quirky and a million miles away from usual homogenized 5* luxury hotel experience, but that is part of the charm.The staff are allowed to be 'themselves' and are fun and friendly - especially Carmel the wonderful waitress who was an absolute hoot serving us...

Stayed with family members here in December. We booked 3 rooms, loved the place. Excellent staff, super bedrooms. Jolly Harbour was within walking distance and Vaughan's beach shuttle service was also a great help.

Just returned from a wonderful holiday in Antigua. The Sugar Ridge Hotel is a cool retreat, upscale, modern and excellent, gracious service from upper management to the grounds crew.
