We’ve spent the past 20 plus years in Barbados and decided this year to try Antigua . We used trip advisor as our source for accommodation as well as some personal research.
There is nothing to say but AMAZING and PERFECT in all ways.
We booked a 3 week stay .
I had such a great time spending my birthday on your property. After renting a car and arriving (very easy to navigate with GPS from the airport) it was safe and comforting to see security and parking lot just a few steps away from our rental. We received a friendly and informative greeting when checking in at the reception office and advised to head to Coconut Grove for a complimentary rum punch after settling down. Our room (29V) was literally a stone’s throw from the beach, it was clean, air conditioned, and had a fully equipped kitchen and back enclosed patio with a nice view of the ocean with closer gate access to the beach. Super convenient and just a few steps away from bar/restaurant Coconut Grove to the left and Ana’s to the right. Both with great food, friendly staff, and good music. The property is quaint, with a lovely pool in the center and a great view of the beach a few steps behind. I read a review the water was yellow before arriving. Yes the toilet water was yellow however kitchen and bathroom water was clear and we had no issues at all.
Where to start?
This is a beautiful condo, simple yet luxurious, with a full kitchen including everything one needs to make frozen cocktails, dinner, snacks, and more. Several places to sleep, including a bedroom with air conditioning. Trust me, on the island, this makes ALL the difference. The complex is quite lovely, with a pool, laundry service, wonderfully friendly front office, equipment rentals, and several friendly resident cats.
Steps from the ocean, among a large stretch of public beach with tons of options for dining (HIGHLY recommend Coconut Grove for their delicioius seafood, amazing drinks, friendly service and live music), entertainment (Snorkeling, jet skis, sting ray tours, etc) and general culture. I love Dickinson Bay, having stayed several places around the island I can say that this is the most culturally immersive area where you can get to know island residents, and learn their culture and appreciate their way of life.
When we return to Antigua, this is THE place we will stay. I recommend this place, 12 /10 stars.
