Overall we enjoyed our vacation. The room was excellent, it was a Caribbean Honeymoon walkout with a pool and jacuzzi. Very quiet and nice to go to the jacuzzi late in the evening before going to bed. We were very close to the smaller pool that had a swim up bar and enjoyed it better than the huge pool. Please check the time of year that you go, especially if you plan to take excursions. The Barbuda by Sea tour was an hour and half boat ride from hell. IF YOU GET AT ALL SEA SICK DO NOT GO THIS TIME OF YEAR. The sea was super rough and not enjoyable. Several people on the boat got sick. I did not, but you could not relax at all. Then you had the hour and a half back... Also, snorkeling is difficult, rough and choppy water, but no one at the tour desk told us any of this. Food overall was good, but Eleanor's was supposed to be so elegant but the menu was not as upscale as it should have been. The best food was at Bayside, we ate there twice. Eleanor's was great for breakfast. Kimono's was not exciting at all. If you have been to a Benihana's, skip it, you will be terribly disappointed. Barefoot menu was great but food was okay. They have a "shrimp martini" on the menu that is their signature drink. We ate with another couple and also spoke with others. It was the nastiest drink we have ever tasted. We called it a "swamp water martini".

This was our first vacation to a Sandals resort and it proved to be a wonderful experience .the resort is absolutely beautiful and the staff are so friendly they make you feel right at home. The beach is perfect . All the restaurants were fabulous , food is wonderful . Loved the Cafe de Paris and the staff there were wonderful as well. Would recommend this resort to everyone. Hope to go back sometime ourselves.
Very nearly there.....

Stayed here for 10 days early Feb, sold on the 'for couples in love' premise..... maybe they should have remembered that when hosting a corporate trip for over 170 Canadians from one company who were very loud and took over large parts of the complex in their groups, spoiling things for the couples there trying to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a lovely resort. The corporate trip seemed to only last about four days, so the rest of the time things were great. The accomodation id superb, the setting, the beach and the grounds were beautifully kept, the staff were all very friendly and very helpful, the food was lovely, but to be honest it wasn't as good as that served up at Sandals Halcyon Bay St Lucia.

My husband and I recently went to Sandals Grande Antigua for our 5 year Anniversary and were blown away by the hospitality of the resort and our travel agent (Karen Britt -Carolina Cruise & Tours). Everyone has been so accomodating even after we got home! Our butlers Daran, Kevin and Roxanne were amazing and went above and beyond to cater to us and help with anything we needed! Mr G (the manager) was even so kind to respond to an email that I sent him when we returned, asking for a picture of our butlers (I can't believe we forgot since they were such an integral part of our trip). While the beach venders and a few mosquitos were a minor annoyance, the Sandals staff more than made up for it with their entertainment and services. We also enjoyed both the day and the evening activities (including a complementary photoshoot with the talented and encouraging Delmore), delicious food and drinks, and the beautiful and romantic grounds and views. I would recommend this trip to anyone and advise to book the butler service, take full advantage of the complimentary water sports/activities (although one of our favortie experiences was our excursion with Island Tours), the complimentary photoshoot, surf n turf dinner at Bayside, coconut soup at Eleanor's, sushi (blue fin) at Kimonos, and nightly entertainment and drinks at the Drunken Duck!

My husband and I stayed here in mid March 2014 and booked a Sunset Bluff Honeymoon Luxury Club Level Room. We weren't planning on booking the Club Level room, but there was a special running when we booked where the points and the associated discount offset the increased cost. The only Club Level amenities we used were the wifi (the website clearly states you have to have club level or above to get free wifi, so I dont know why people act like they had no idea) and we asked for some honey for the room to have tea one night. There were some stairs leading up to the room, plus we were on the 2nd floor but we needed to exercise to work off all the food and drinks we enjoyed. We were in the Anthurium Bldg. We never used the pool right in front of the bldg and were never disturbed by people who did. The patio was very spacious but we only used it to dry our scuba gear. Plenty of room if you want to sit and have a meal. The room was perfect for us. Roomy, cool and the bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the pizza and Barefoot for lunch. The OK Corral was all right. The Drunken Duck was one of our favorites along with Marios and Soy. The Scotch Bonnet sake at Soy was delicious. The seafood chowder, wings and peanut butter french toast was also delicious. The antipasto and lava cake at Marios was very good, along with all of the entrees that we tried. We so enjoyed the company of Mario at the Drunken Duck, as well as KerryAnne who we met at the piano bar and who also showed up at the Drunken Duck. The rest of the staff was nothing but generous and friendly. They really went out of their way to make sure we were having a nice time. I think that the people who complain about the staff being rude are probably rude to them. We went on 2 excursions: canopy zipline/obstacle cource and a shopping trip to St John's. No complaints. We went scuba diving as much as we could. The 2 tank dives in the morning as well as the wreck dive in the afternoon give you options just in case you dont feel like getting up early or feel like being lazy in the afternoon. We did have an issue with one of the dives being unsafe, which was an issue with one or two of the dive instructors, but we had a lengthy conversation with the dive shop manager and didnt notice the safety issue ever again. The diving was not as clear as it was in Jamaica, but we still enjoyed ourselves. Antigua is much further east than Jamaica and not as protected, so the water was a little rougher and colder. The reefs were not as healthy either. We saw sting rays, a turtle, some sharks, and heard but did not see dolphins. We were told there were humpback whales passing thru a few days before we arrived. We were sad that we missed that. Overall, any day diving is a good day and its always good to get more time in the water. We noted and heard a lot of people asking, why does Sandals ask multiple times if you are celebrating a special event if they dont recognize it? We were married at Sandals Grande Riviera in Ocho Rios the year before and were celebrating our 1st Anniversary at our 3rd Sandals. We didnt really mind, but I feel that its worth mentioning. We did attend the returning guest dinner, which was fun. We didn't know anything about it the previous year (in Ocho Rios, our 2nd visit to Sandals) but now that we know about it we will be certain to attend next year when we decide which Sandals to visit. Overall we had a fantastic time. We met a lot of great people, had great service and just as we seemed to be getting settled in, it was time to leave. I wish we had the time and funds to spend 2 full weeks. Maybe some day, but until then we will squeeze every bit of fun we can out of our 9 nights.
Have you vacationed with us before?
We'd love to know what you think.
