We recently returned from a trip at Sandals Grand Antigua. Everything about this trip was fabulous. The resort, the friendly people, the food and most of all the memories we will always have. This is our 2nd stay at a Sandals resort and it was just as memorable as the Royal Bahamian. Next year we are going to Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica and I'm sure it will be just as fabulous.

I just got back from this resort and it was amazing!! I don't have any complaints at all!! There was a hurricane the day before we got there and you would have never known. It was truly paradise, everything was so well kept and looked fake it was so perfect! I have traveled a lot and this is by far my favorite island and resort so far! Also my travel agent Steve from beach bum travel was amazing and so thoughtful! He took care of everything from our flight getting changed to booking us a hotel by the airport and even leaving us a card checking to make sure we were enjoying our stay and flowers on the bed one night of the honeymoon! This was truly the perfect trip for us as newlyweds!

This was our first time at a Sandals resort and what better time to try it than our honeymoon! The resort is clearly designed for a romantic get away with the vast majority of visitors celebrating a wedding, anniversary or special occasion together. The resort itself is almost split in two with what people refer to as the "Caribbean side" (with clusters of bungalows and small blocks of rooms typically for people staying a week or longer) and the "Atlantic side" (with two high rise buildings with smaller apartment style hotel rooms where a lot of the Americans visiting for a long weekend were based). We stayed in a beautiful room on the Caribbean side where the atmosphere was a little more laid back and quiet. We had a large room with a four poster bed decorated in a modern Caribbean style with fantastic finishing. The mini fridge was like nothing we've ever experienced before with 4 bottles of spirits (vodka, rum, gin and whiskey), a variety of soft and fruit drinks as well as numerous bottles of wine (white, red and sparking). This was replenished daily without fail. The balcony overlooking the gardens was simply icing on the cake. The beach was just like those you see in magazines and was situated in a stunning bay. There were floating platforms where you can sunbath but the water is quite deep in this area. The sand is white and soft although the wind can pick up a bit on the beach being located to close to the Atlantic ocean. On the beach you can hire canoes, paddle boards and hobby crafts for free on a first come first serve basis. Highly recommended if only to burn off some cocktails! I think you may also be able to hire snorkel equipment on request. Simply walking around the resort is an enjoyable experience with beautiful gardens and areas designed for relaxation (such as fire pits, jacuzzis, giant chess boards, hammocks-you name it)!! It also gives you a chance to nose at the other rooms! The numerous restaurants provided a wide range of different foods although some of these need to be booked in advance (namely Eleanors and the Japanese restaurant although we never struggled to get in). The food was of high quality and always beautifully presented. There is no buffets in the evening so be prepared to be waited upon with fantastic service. There are plenty of bars throughout the resort, from swim up bars to a piano bar which is open until the wee hours and where you'll experience a new type of karaoke with your own pianist! The drinks are all branded and the cocktail menu is limitless. We undertook various trips and would highly recommend the reggae party at Shirley Heights on a Sunday evening, swimming with the sting rays at Sting Ray City and taking a catamaran trip (although it's choppy when you hit the Atlantic, you can see 360 degrees of the island). We didn't book through the hotel but rather saved money by booking from a guy called Tony working on the beach (something we wouldn't normally do but the guys are well known to the resort and the security). On a slight tangent, the hotel does offer the opportunity to volunteer in a local school for a small donation (although they don't seem to promote this for some reason). This was an eye opening experience and I thoroughly enjoyed my morning reading and drawing with the children. They were very friendly and seemed to love having visitors. If you have concierge service with your package then it is well worth it. The guys were extremely helpful and even put on the FA cup final for us to watch in the main reception room! The spa is overpriced but looked amazing. The gym and tennis court is slightly dated but still of high quality. To be fair, we didn't travel all the way to Antigua to work out! Overall we were extremely impressed with the resort, the service and the island itself. We are already planning our next Sandals trip and promised to return to this resort for our five year anniversary. If you're looking for something special and are prepared to pay that little extra, it is worth every penny.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this Sandals. The experience can not be beat. We met many people during our stay, including those who worked at the resort. Omar at the front desk in the Med was fanastic. Gwendolyn and Michelle from the salon were amazing. Everyone was warm and welcoming and genuine! We loved our time in Antigua and will definitely be returning in the near future. Advice: Pack some bug spray. The mosquitos aren't terrible but they can be persistent, especially at night.
Our first Sandals experience and definitely NOT our last !!!!

The property is beautiful. The staff bend over backwards to help you and do what is needed to make this a great vacation. We encountered ever employee of the property to be kind, thoughtful, smiling and they genuinity appear to enjoy their jobs. We were unfortunate to have Tropical Storm Gonzalo pass right over us while we were there. We can not say enough for the work the staff did to keep us safe and clean up the property. Many of them leaving their own homes and family to report to work. The food was great. We absolutely loved Mario's for breakfast and dinner. The Japanese place was just ok. Not the same variety and quality of food that you get from a US location for Japanese Hibatchi table steakhosue but still not a bad meal. The Sushi place "Soy" was AWESOME - - in fact some of the best sushi we've ever had. Definitely don't like the bird flying around the lunch buffet in the one "outdoor area" but get there when it opens and stay with your food and it's ok. We already had a return stay planned. !!!!
Have you vacationed with us before?
We'd love to know what you think.
