My husband and I decided to split up our honeymoon between two resorts in the Caribbean and spent the first five days at the Sandals Antigua resort. We had a butler rondoval on the beach and loved everything about our room and our experience. I was surprised the first morning by the sounds of all the birds, frogs and crickets in the beautiful grounds, but I think that just means that I'm more of a city girl. (haha) The staff was friendly and accommodating. At times the butler service was a bit slower than we expected, but overall it was a nice thing to have and we're glad we paid for it. All of the food and drinks were great and the evening events were fun. The beach was so beautiful, but the vendors on the beach can be annoying. We had fun talking to many of them and weren't too bothered, but I know it was a pain for several people. August is a great time to go - the resort wasn't packed and we were able to easily get spots at the pool or on the beach each day. We met so many wonderful people from all over the world and can't wait to go back again soon!

I love trip advisor, but the problem is you can sometimes get bogged down with some negative reports. My daughter got married at Sandals on 25th August and we wanted to share her day so booked our two week holiday. The holiday cost us about £2,000 more than we normally pay and so you can imagine how we were feeling when reading some reports. With that in mind, we decided that we needed to keep an open mind and just go with it. We are so pleased we did that as the resort exceeded our expectations. Our arrival was dealt with promptly and (maybe because they knew the reason for our holiday) we were told that we had been upgraded. Fantastic room on the Caribbean side, no concerns what so ever. All the staff were friendly and helpful, rooms clean, food brilliant (better than other all inclusive's we have been to maybe because of the American clientele) Full marks to the gardening team who always seemed to be working their socks off. A positive for us (I think!!) was that in my opinion the resort was only at about 70% capacity and so we never had any issues with pool chairs and plenty of room to move around. Having said that did find it a bit frustrating that the butlers would reserve chairs and then the couple would not even show their face. If the resort was at full capacity and I could not get a seat I would be very miffed. We travelled 12 to 27 August and this is their rainy season. We had 2 hours of rain on one day and another whole day of rain. Believe it or not this was one of the best days for us as we were in Laytoya's bar (Caribbean Grove) and if you want to stay the course would advise not to get there much before 3pm as you will be completely out of it within a couple of hours. Shots and booze just appeared. Fantastic having the rain belt down and being in the hot tub drinking with new friends. I always like to treat myself to a spa treatment on holiday and this is the only negative I have at this resort. I thought the treatments were far too expensive. Have no problem paying over the odds when away but felt the costs were a rip off so no massage for me this time. Personally did not find the vendors on the beach a problem. Yes they do approach you but in a very friendly way and after smiling at them and saying "no thanks" left me alone. Also, I actually think this is their Country and they are trying to make a living so why should the beach be private. Also, we booked a trip through the hotel which was excellent as was worried about booking a tour through a vendor, but they are all licensed, wear photo ID and it turns out that the same trip would have saved us about $100 (£70.00) My daughter's wedding day went without a hitch and obviously I am biased but it was a gorgeous day with the wedding planner by our side all the time. They sorted everything out and my thanks goes to them. (Just a little note here is that if you pay for the wedding package I assumed everything would be included but little things like candles on your table for the dinner on the beach were extra along with a couple of other things so be prepared to spend a bit more) I would have no hesitation in returning to Sandals and had the most fantastic time, but it is just a bit on the expensive side.

My new husband and I spent one week here in July as part of our honeymoon and we were absolutely delighted with our whole experience. This resort is so beautiful. The beach is fabulous. We were greeted by Stanley on arrival and we were made to feel so welcome. This was our first time to do an all inclusive resort and we loved it. The food was excellent in most of the restaurants - the only one we wouldnt recommend would be the OK Coral. We didnt try the Japanese restaurant as we'd heard from a few couples there that it wasnt very nice. We loved Eleanors and Marios for dinner. We also did a sunset dinner on the beach which was very romantic and perfect for honeymooners. This was an extra charge. My husband played pool volleyball almost every day and he really enjoyed that. We would love to return to a Sandals resort again. We had a fantastic time here.

My husband and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary at the resort August 16th - 23rd. The last time we were at a Sandals resort was when we met so we weren't sure what to expect. We were both very pleased! Let me first say that this is our 9th all-inclusive resort. It's nice to go to a resort and not have to carry cash around to tip every employee like we have to do at other all-inclusives. We stayed in a Mediterranean Village walkout and were pleased with that choice. The resort is beautiful, well spread out, and has a lot of food choices. The food was very very good, not pricey gourmet excellent, but we stuffed ourselves every day so I'm not complaining! Of course the caribbean food is scrumptous!! Some people have been turned off by the vendors on the beach. Yeah, they approach you often but we found if you tell them "No Thank You" they walk away. It really isn't as bad as others have commented on. They are respectful of your space. I watched several vendors be invited to sit and talk with the resort guests. I'll bet there are a lot of interesting life stories carried onto that beach every day. I fell in love with Isaac who sells catamaran tours during the day and DJs at night. We experienced very nice staff who did there jobs very well, and we never wanted for anything at any time. Brianna at the poolside cabana was a sweetheart! Sure, some service was slower than others, but we got our food and drinks and we were happy, happy, happy! The frogs start singing early and sing all night long. So if you're a light sleeper use ear plugs. I did and slept very well. They fog for bugs every day (I went inside during it) so nights are enjoyable with very few bugs around. The only not-so-positive issue was the loss of water twice on our side of the resort. But things happen and it was out of their control. Check-in can be confusing, so here's what you need to know. When you get there they will lead you into the lobby, tell you to have a seat and someone will call you to check-in. Take my advice and just grab a seat, get a drink, munch on a cookie from the cookie jar, and sit back and take in the fact that you're on vacation. Someone will take care of you, get you to your room, and make sure you're settled in.

We returned from Sandals a week ago and now, sitting in the rain in England, are missing it desperately! We spent two weeks there and had an amazing time. The food was excellent, good quality and a choice of 11 restaurants, some we preferred to others. Our favourite had to be Barefoot, lunchtime it was an American diner and in the evening a seafood restaurant, the lobster was amazing and Andrae was very welcoming and friendly as were the other staff. Yes there are birds in the buffet restaurant in the morning but I would gladly trade that for the pleasure of eating beside the beach looking over the white sands and the Caribbean, however if you don't like the birds go to the indoor buffet at Marios, just as good, or table service at Eleanor's. The choice of drinks were outstanding, beautiful cocktails and very friendly bar staff, Latoya at the Caribbean Grove pool was really nice and knew just what cocktail I liked after the first day! The room we had in the Caribbean Grove walked out onto the pool, it was a little dark but very comfortable and extremely clean, the maid service was excellent and the fridge was always well stocked. However we did feel the cost of internet in the room at $15 a day was outrageous in this day and age , when usually it is free, but there are 2 computers in reception available to use. The gardens on the resort are beautiful and very well tended by a team of friendly gardeners. We would recommend the Pelican tour trip, a whole day jeep trip around the island seeing all the major attractions, very good value for money and an extremely friendly and knowledgeable guide called 'Nice Man'. If you are lucky you may be the only ones on the trip, as we were. Thank you to everyone at Sandals for making this such a special holiday.
