We stayed at the Sandal's Grande Antigua from June 3 -10 for our honeymoon. First let me say that the grounds and rooms of the resort are absolutely beautiful. We chose to have butler service which is a must in my opinion, props to N'kosi and Sheldon we highly recomend them.
The pool seemed to be the main attraction at the resort and it was top notch. Most people seemed to just hang out at the resort and not leave, but we chose to partake in a few excursions, which we highly recommend. We chose to go on the zip line trip combined with the obstacle course, which was awesome.
We also got a taxi to take us to the south side of the island to a restaurant that served fresh snapper, called OJ's, very good food and perfect for a sunset dinner.
One thing I must say is that the resort does not give a true representation of the island which is very poor. I highly recomend to explore a bit see Antigua for what it is.
Downside to the resort- Nightlife is pretty lame, in that there was not much that went on past sunset.
Food was good- loved the barefoot restaurant, good seafood for dinner.
Non motorized sports were all free included in the all inclusive package- like kayaking, sailing, and snorkeling.
Great stay, and relaxing must stay!!
PS- July begins the rainy season there.
