Memorable birthday celebration

leonard b on May 11, 2024

This was our second trip to Sandals Antigua. We decided to return to this resort because of the staff, beautiful location, and the relaxing environment. Two of the staff that made our trip very special were Ericka and Sylvia that worked at the Cafe de Paris. They not only remembered our names from the last trip but remembered the diet restrictions. Their warm and welcoming personalities as well as their smile made us feel extremely welcomed and special. They both were more than accommodating and went above and beyond. Another staff that worked at the pizza place Natasia, always had a smile and remembered us from the previous year. She always greeted us with her sweet and welcoming smile and had cold drinks ready for us to begin our day at the pool. We rented a cabana for the day for a birthday celebration. Marsha greeted us that morning with welcoming warm smiles of happy birthday. She took very good care of our needs all day and made sure we felt very special for our birthday. She greeted us throughout the week and wished us happy birthday until we departed. We had a birthday dinner at OK Corral and Temisha made sure it was a wonderful experience mainly due to Temisha remembering us from the last trip we had. She made sure our dinner was special. She went out of her way and presented a birthday card to us from all of the staff. It was a special time for us to remember. All of these ladies are very sweet and caring and make the experience so fun and memorable.

Highly Recommend

Jen P (Los Angeles, California) on May 10, 2024

This hotel was awesome. We went for our honeymoon and highly recommend it. It has more restaurants than other all-inclusives in the area and more to do as well. The hotel offers 3 snorkeling trips per day (included). Our guide Lance was particularly amazing on those trips. He took the time to point out different animals as we drove out to the snorkeling spots, told us about the fish we'd see and pointed out landmarks. The hibachi grill was also awesome. Our chef Jayson had personality for days and the food was great. Also, if you like cats, this place is for you. There are a bunch around the property and they're all sweet and cute.

Beautiful place, fun piano bar, not enough Sunbeds

Sharon R (Plymouth, United Kingdom) on May 10, 2024

Just arrived back from a week long stay at Sandals Grande Antigua resort! It was absolutely fabulous! The people, the food, the place were absolutely fabulous and was a great way to unwind and relax, I want to give a special shout out to John in the piano bar doing a 3 nights a week sing along. Had a wonderful time doing that and was a good way to meet other residents at the resort. The only thing I would say is that there are not enough sunbeds versus the amount of customers present as we had to get up early to bag a couple of sunbeds by the pool. Now we were actually going for an early morning swim, but many weren't coming down until quite a few hours later, which I thought was wrong, also if you had the butler service they would lay towels down to claim beds for their clients too. Something that needs looking at considering the cost of the holiday. That said we did usually manage to get sunbeds, but there were slim pickings most days if you wasn't out by 6am.
