Go diving & visit the duck

We visited Sandals Grande Antigua in Oct/Nov and loved it (our 6th sandals/Beaches). As divers, we enjoyed the 2 tank dives the best (M, W, F). The days where we went to the south side were the best visibility and best sea life. The one tank mornings were hit or miss (T, T, S, S) and the afternoon dive is typically to the wreck. The sites close to the resort, including the wreck had poor visibility when we were there. The absolute best part of diving was Captain Akino, he is knowledgeable, safe, and funny!! Our favorite dive masters were Denzel, Alex, & Travis. As far as the rest of the resort... the sand is white and soft! The vendors were not overly annoying-we just said no thank you. There were a couple days with seaweed floating in, but it was not overwhelming or a problem. If you want a beautiful, white, long Beach, this is a great choice! We loved the Drunken Duck. The best beer is there (different from the rest of the resort) and the best drinks!! Louise is great! She takes the time to make each guest feel special. Our favorite bartender was Olson. He jumps around the resort and we followed him (like where’s Waldo :)) He is a super knowledgeable bartender, he taught us about several drinks and liquors. The thing I truly appreciated most about Olson is his humility-a true gentle giant. We went to Mario’s for breakfast almost every morning and several times for appetizers/dinner. Pedro was awesome! He remembered us each time, he ensured we had a great experience, and I heard him talking with his staff- asking their opinions and preferences. I appreciated the leadership style! The pizzas were fabulous! Eleanors was good, but don’t forget to bring long pants (men). The ribs at OK Corral were good!! The room had several issues, but we did not report them, just because we did not want to deal with the issues! We were in a walkout club in the almond building. The walkout door handle was falling apart, the rug smelled a little, the shower head dripped, and the jets in our tub did not work. There are cats on the resort. Some friendly & some are more snobby. The club team was fine, but we have experienced much better. We are not into the nightlife, so cannot speak to the quality. Overall, a good experience that we would recommend!!

Beautiful Resort

I have been to a few Sandals resorts and the one in Antigua is absolutely stunning. The resort is massive and beautifully kept. The only down side is the many vendors who are on the beach constantly approaching you to buy their stuff.

Showing it's age but still nice

We stayed on the Mediterranean side and the rooms were lacking some on maintenance and cleanliness (drippy water fixtures, not enough towels, dirty corners, sticky carpet).

The resort grounds were immaculate and the pool area was exceptional and beautiful.

Staff was a 50/50 with some very attentive employees and some that really seemed like they didn't want to be there.

The food was not really impressive but not bad.

Security at this resort was exceptional and we felt safe the entire 5 night stay.

Still contemplating if we'd go back.
