Beauty and the Beach
Reviewed 6 hours ago

This was our first time ever at a Sandals as well as Antigua. There are 6 pools 11 restaurants and the grounds and rooms are immaculately kept. I have read people complaining about the non-friendliness of thensraff which I found to be UNTRUE. As a matter of fact I felt that all staff were willing to accommodate you in any way possible. There was a smiling friendly face around every corner. The food was good. I’m a bad judge in this as we are from the East Coast and are a bit spoiled when it comes to food. Mario’s was our favorite followed by El gaucho ( I believe) whichbwas their Tex Mex
restaurant. The coffee/pastry shop is excellent and the pizza is not to be missed. We stayed in a Romeo and Juliet Mediterranean Honeymood Penthouse Suite with Butler Service. Daren, Shaunti and Charmaine were amazing and I can’t thank them enough for making our stay an amazing one. I also want to thank them for those special little added touches in outer room or beach hit or at the pool that the surprised us with!
My only complaint is that we are beach people and love the beach. Since all beaches are public there is the constant harassing (yes harrassing) of jet skis, jewelry, hair braiding, aloe, t shirts, etc. they would actually curse each other out and argue in front of the beach goers which was a real turn off. this actually made us not want to return to the beach except for the very early morning hours before the vendors were there.
With that being said, we will definitely return and enjoy the wonderful people at Sandals and the imma late property!

Had an absolutely great week at this resort. All staff friendly and attentive. Restaurants great. One downside - booked a romantic meal on the beach for our 50th anniversary. V.good until party boat turned up on beach to unload passengers. W. Indian music full blast for 20 mins. Killed the ambiance. St Lucia next week. Hope just as good.

Amazing Island and beautiful resort

We had an incredible time here. A photographer by the name of Delmore is highly recommended as he actually made out time there so enjoyable by showing us around and just making us laugh. Niecer who is part of entertainment is probably the most amazing down to earth person I’ve met and also made our stay at sandals so much more amazing. She’s great at what she does so if you get the change to talk to her take it. We also really liked Janet from Barefoot by the Sea restaurant. She smiled and went out of her way for us.

If I have any criticism thought it would be that the staff in Antigua are not as Smiley and friendly (except those listed above) as we experienced when we went to Sandals in St. Lucia. I would also say it’s a bit of an older crowd here compared to St. Lucia. I’m 29 and my wife is 26 and we met one couple our age or under.

All in all we had the time of our lives and we plan to come back to sandals again and again as they all have something unique to offer

Fantastic Resort

We stayed at Sandals Grand Antigua for our first Sandals experience and it didn’t disappoint! We loved every minute of it. From our fantastic beachfront rondoval, to our extraordinary butlers (team Karen, Marlyne, and Kevin) to the great and unlimited food and drinks....we had the BEST time. We even booked another vacation for next year at another Sandals resort before we left! Highly recommend this resort—clean, fun, relaxing, very attentive and friendly staff with wonderful beach and pools!
