My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous trip to Sandals Grande Antigua! We don't usually submit reviews but this time had to spread the word on our fabulous Butler Vanessa!! We stayed in Rondoval #301...if you love the beach, it's a perfect accommodation! We've been to several Sandals properties and always have a fantastic time but Vanessa really made this one amazing constantly surpassing our expectations - saving our favorite beach loungers, delivering drinks, lunch etc.unprompted by us! Her warm and genuine personality was completely sweet and her interest in making our Sandals experience the best it could be was appreciated! Thanks again Vanessa!!

I stayed at Sandals the first week of March - we had 2 major snow storms in New York so it was SO nice to be away - Okay Pros and Cons of my trip Firstly, there is a major difference from Mediterranean side and Caribbean side - we stayed in the 800 block rooms on the Caribbean side in a sunset bluff room with NO butler - The Caribbean side is EQUIDISTANT to both sides which was great - you could either walk to the beach - get coffee in the morning - go to the gym- it really was nice being right in the middle - mediterranean side is a high rise building overlooking the main pool - over there you can eat at Marios for breakfast which believe me will be your least favorite restaurant-on the caribbean side you can eat at Bayside for breakfast overlooking the water (GORGEOUS views) or Eleanors - both were WONDERFUL - i LOVE the beach so that is where I spent most of the time CONS - If I got up at 7:05 am I was guaranteed a tiki hut - you see ALL the Butlers setting up there huts at that time - By 7:40am there were none available - If you don't get to the beach by 8:30 - 9am there were no lounge chairs - I am an early riser so I got me and my friends great spots on the beach every day The watersports were nice - we took out a Hobie Kat one day - that thing flies - we kayaked some days and they offer you a snorkeling trip 3 times a day - I did it but was not impressed after taking a 6 hour cruise on the Wadadli Cats - that is a MUST if you come to Antigua - they have guys walking up a down the beach - we paid 110 a person - they pick you up right at the beach at 9am and you don't get back until 4:30 pm - they take you 2 three different spots - the snorkeling was great -they serve GREAT Rum Punch and a great lunch - the day we went the weather was stellar - I do hear if the weather is not good it can get pretty rough out there - you are in rough waters for 15 minutes - a few people got a little queasy - we had SO MUCH FUN PROS of Restaurants - Ate at Barefoot By The Sea twice - they serve a grilled lobster which was wonderful - all the tables are in the sand and you are surrounded by water and they have tiki torches - you can have a drink while you wait for your table - really nice ambiance DO NOT GET DRESSED FOR THE SO CALLED WHITE PARTY - we wore white and out of 200 people there were only 6 couple dressed in white including me and my friends - do go though and wear whatever you want- they have awesome chocolate martinis and wonderful desserts and a good band PROS - they throw a beach party on the beach and have an awesome buffet - they give you coconuts filled with rum as you enter the party - we met a lot of people at the bar from the resort We ate at Eleanors one night which was FANTASTIC - we ate at Marios twice and that was HORRIBLE - my friends had a good meal but 2 times my entrees were REALLY REALLY bad - they do have a great antipasto bar that we all LOVED We ate at the OK Coral (I think that is the name) - it is on top of the Bayside Bar -it was actually quite good but my favorite is Barefoot and Eleanors CONS of the room - NO OUTLETS near the sink area to do your hair - other than that it was a very large room with a nice terrace overlooking the pool - I loved having our own pool in our section - there is also a hot tub which we enjoyed as well SOOOOO after dinner we went to the DRUNKEN DUCK EVERY NIGHT - one night we sang karaoke - the white party night the DJ was so great we danced until 2am when it closed - it is attached to a pool hall so we played a lot of pool as well - if you get the munchies late at night you can order food there - I loved the drunken duck Everyone on this site said the pizza was so good - we ordered a couple of pies and brought them to the beach - being from New York they were not that good but we tried them - PROS - i had the couples massage with my husband - it was GREAT - very relaxing - very nice spa DO NOT get a massage outside - we played shuffleboard one day and the massages are done right net to the shuffle board court THE BEST part of this trip were the photographers constantly snapping your picture morning noon and night - I mean this in a GOOD way - you are not obligated to buy any pictures but you definitely will- at the end of the trip they have a shop where you can view all your pics - we bought so many of them I loved the pastry shop they serve coffees ice cream and pastries and waffles but even more than that was the cappuccino machine near the Bayside restaurant - OMG - I LOVED this - THE STAFF - Please give MARIE-LOUISE A HUG - she was AWESOME - we had so much fun with her and Vanessa at the mediterranean pool - Leon was nice also - really the Sandals staff were friendly and pleasant our whole stay The weather was 84 degrees and sunny every day - if you go you won't be disappointed

My husband and I have nothing but positive things to say about Sandals Grande Antigua! We went in January to celebrate our honeymoon and stayed in one of the Mediterranean suits. It truly is one of the most beautiful islands, let alone the location of the Sandals is superb! The grounds are immaculate, the staff is amazing and so friendly and helpful, and let's not get started on the food and drinks! I think we ate at the pizzeria almost every day for lunch:) We also were very impressed with the beach. The only thing I will say that disappointed us, was that after we had gotten back to our room on our last afternoon, after the maids had been there, one of the doors on our mini bar was hanging off and we got charged for it. Overall though, we had the best vacation. If you want to see the island and all of its spectacular history, take the "Best of Antigua" tour with Roger, you will not be disappointed! Thank you Sandals Grande Antigua for providing us with an unforgettable honeymoon! We plan to return in the future!

I had chosen this place for my honeymoon because it was different from the usual Hawaii, Jamaica ect. A lot of people may have never heard of Antigua. From the arrival to the departure, this trip was nothing but fantastic. Employees- All employees greet you with a Hello any time of day. From maintenance workers to hotel managers, they all greet people with the same respect. The employee staff is willing to accommodate anything that you wish for. I didn't choose to have the butler service. I did see them around and if you want someone waiting on you all hours of the day, then this is for you. Basically they will reserve a pool chair for you and give you a cooler with drinks, then you can order lunch with them too. Im sure they do much more than this, but this is all I saw. Restaurants/Food- We tried to eat at every place possible in this resort with them having 11 different ones. Granted some were just walk up places, to think I did make it to all of them. There are only 2 places that you need to make reservations for, and that is Elenors, and the hibachi grill. Mario's was great Italian food, and they also had a great appetizer bar. You could make a meal just from the food on there. Bayside which was mostly a buffet had a small but good choice for breakfast and lunch at the buffet. Barefoot, which is a restaurant on the beach was good, but the only issue is that the birds will steal the food off your plate if you weren't careful. The Tex Mex restaurant had some good steak and other southwestern options there. The little pizza place that is next to Mario's is great pizza, but it does take a while to get your food. My suggestion is to place your order and take a walk, or go back to your pool spot. Most waiting time was 15 minutes, but it is a wood fire pizza. Room/Hotel- We were on the Mediterranean side which is the newest side. Most of the restaurants are on the Caribbean side, which means you will do a lot of walking to the other side. The whole resort is 23 acres total. The Rooms were nice, and had a small balcony that was nice to sit on during nights. There is an in room safe, and depending on what level you are on, you may have a mini bar that is filled every day. At night there are fire pits with seating where groups can gather and talk. Sometimes servers will walk by and offer drinks while at the fire pit. The bartenders are all great and friendly. Since English is the spoken language there, there aren't language barriers, just a dialect. The drinks they serve at the bar are strong, and they will pack a punch if you don't watch out. They do have some top shelf liquors that you can choose from. TIPS- Bring your own Bug spray. They do fog the grounds, but the mosquitos are still bad. (The island is based in a jungle) Unless you want to pay $14 for their bug spray, come prepared. Also make sure you have plenty of tanning oil or lotion, because this is expensive too. The resort does accept American USD, but only if they are crisp. I guess their bank wont accept torn bills even in the slightest. So if you bring cash, make sure its fresh money. Credit card is accepted to.
Best place for a honeymoon!
5 stars - best island vacation on the planet. Room, food, weather (March), beach, butler service, many pools - including our own pool and hot tub as part of our Butler Village room - all top notch...
5 stars - best island vacation on the planet. Room, food, weather (March), beach, butler service, many pools - including our own pool and hot tub as part of our Butler Village room - all top notch. Relatively new facility and everything is immaculate. We already signed up for a repeat vacation.
