“Perfect place to relax and chill.”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a great place. We've travelled extensively with our children since they were babies, (now 16 and 14) and we've seen some beautiful beaches, and Dickenson Bay is one of the best. The complex is directly on the beach, and is simply stunning. Most of our days were spent by the beach and or pool which is very quiet - we were there at Easter in the school holidays, and there were very few people around which suited us very well. There are a couple of restaurants to hand which are very good - one directly next door on the white sands, overlooking the ocean (amazing lobster), and Putters, a 'cheap and cheerful' place just a two minute walk away. We ate at both, and they were really good. St John's is just ten minutes up the road by cab, and there is a large selection of shops, bars and restaurants by the port where the cruise ships come in. There are two supermarkets nearby - $25 US dollars to get a cab one way which is a bit pricey, so we ended up walking to the slightly smaller supermarket about a mile away. We also bought daily bits and bobs at the on-site mini mart which is very convenient and not overly expensive.
Happy teenagers = happy holidays......the wifi was great!! Strong signal so they could get their daily fix of their friends back home. My daughter was revising whilst we were there and was able to use the internet with no problem at all which was really good.
As for Villa Dix - it was perfect for us. There are two sofa beds in the large lounge, and plenty of space for the kids clothes and bags. My two were very comfortable sleeping in the air conditioned lounge, although the air conditioner was much louder than the one in the top bedroom. The second bedroom upstairs is huge, and the air conditioner was super quiet and kept us very cool. The only slight niggle was the fact that upstairs there are two single beds which go together as a double. It would have been nice to have a proper double bed, but it's a minor detail. As with all tropical destinations, the water pressure is not like the UK, so no power showers, but still good. There are big flat-screens in both the lounge and the bedroom with a wide choice of US TV, but there is a bit of BBC if you look hard!
Kitchen facilities are good, and we ate quite cheaply by cooking in most nights. It's worth noting that Sandals is next door, and although there is no interference at all during the day, at night the entertainment is very loud. But, it stops dead on 11pm every night and we didn't find it intrusive at all. Ian was very helpful with all my pre-holiday queries, and we're hoping to return next year because it was such a great all-round slice of paradise.

“Wonderful Time! Great Value!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We loved our stay at Villa Dix and on Antigua! The location is ideal: on the beach; near the city; and near restaurants and shopping.
We were there for Christmas week. Lots of people, but we never felt crowded.
The villa was very comfortable for the two us and could easily have handled two more, if they were willing to sleep on sofa beds. Everything we needed was in the villa. Furniture was nice and comfortable. Daily maid service was prompt and thorough. We had a few minor problems when we first arrived and found Antigua Village management to be very responsive.
The only real problem was that the resort next door played music until 11pm or Midnight depending upon the day. The music wasn't bad, but it was hard to turn in until it stopped.

“Beautiful Spot”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

The villa is very well equipped - comfortable beds just a seconds walk to one of the best beaches in the world - there are lots of great restaurants along the beach - water skiing - jet skiing all available on this lovely beach. I come back to the same villa every year and would not dream of going anywhere else. It has a balcony at the front and one at the rear - with excellent views

“Roomy and Bright”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Villa Dix is roomy and the accommodations are bright. The bed is comfortable and the first floor bathroom is great. We enjoyed using the gas fired barbecue on the patio facing the parking lot. There is also a comfortable veranda facing the pool. Staff at the Antigua Villa were friendly and promptly dealt with requests.

The Coconut Grove restaurant at the West end of the property is good and open for breakfast lunch and dinner. We had several tasty meals there. Pepperz n’ Lime, the restaurant at the East end of the property is open only on the weekends (at least during low season) and neither the menu nor the DJ was able to attract our business.

We rented a car and returned it. The roads are poorly maintained. There are few signs and the road map was virtually useless. We took taxis and recommend booking Sylvester. He is knowledgeable and will get you where you need to go. The owners were very accommodating and offered great tips.

stayed 9 days at villa dix and it was great , the villa is part of antigua village which is a large complex of villas on the beach at dickenson bay . The villa is 3 levels so be careful if the knees or hips are wearing down , we overcame this by leaving our suitcases and clothes on the 2nd level so only needing to go to 3rd level once a day to sleep. The villa is well equipped with everything you need and is serviced daily. Management were very friendly and helpful and problems were dealt with promptly. the owner was easy to deal with when booking on the net. A car is required to get supplies from the local supermarket which is well stocked. The roads and particularly the road signs are a little rustic but the locals are very helpful and I saw no signs of road rage even when going the wrong way on one way streets , it added to the adventure and we looked forward to our sightseeing expeditions most days. some nights the music could be loud from the nearby beach bar and Sandals but quiet by midnight. on the whole we had a great time and would do it again.
