I recently visited the beautiful Island of Antigua to be a judge at the 1st Ever Antigua Barbuda Smokin’ Hot BBQ Culinary Competition (http://www.gulftolakeschefs.com/antigua2012.htm). The competition was held at the Antigua Barbuda Hospitality Training Institute. During my visit I had the pleasure to stay at the Royal Grand Antiguan Beach Resort. The hotel is located in an area called Five Islands. My room was on the 7th floor and each morning I was able to enjoy watching the sun rise. Antigua is one of my favorite islands in the Caribbean and I enjoy visiting there. The room was very nice and the amenities were adequate. The bed was very comfortable and had no problem sleeping at night.
Each morning I had breakfast in there restaurant and Andrea my waitress was OUTSTANDING! She is why I continue to return to Antigua. Each morning she went out of her way to make me feel welcome. The restaurant, like many is located outside near the water. The landscaping at the resort is fantastic. No matter where you are on the property it is very beautiful. I met the General Manager Mr. Ted Isaac. He is new the Royal Antiguan and he explained some of the changes he is planning. In the evening when I would return I would usually have cold refreshment at the lobby bar. Just like the restaurant, the bar staff was fantastic. Mr. Joseph the evening front desk attendant took care of my technical needs.
I had a great stay at the Grand Royal Antiguan Beach Resort and would have no problem staying there again. The only negative comment I can say is I do not like the charges for using the internet. It irritates me when hotels and resorts add on that charge. I travel quite a bit for business and I am very much aware of incidental charges. I realize it is a small charge, but I try to stay at properties that do not charge for this service.
