I think most of the reviews are quite accurate on here. Great location, beautiful beach and hotel grounds. Rooms on Mediterranean side were lovely and clean, plenty of clean towels and toiletries which were replenished if requested. Huge bathroom but tiny Loo squeezed in what looked like a cupboard. Loads of drinks and optics in the room and tea and...

I traveled here in January 2017 for my honeymoon. I stayed on the Mediterranean side and I am thankful I did. The Caribbean side seemed more outdated and only had very small pools. I have no complaints about the room, I thought it was very nice. Unfortunately, you do have to wake up before 630 am for a chair (especially...

Just returned home from our 20th Anniversary trip. We stayed January 14 – 19. We had a wonderful time! This was our first all inclusive experience since our honeymoon 20 years ago at the now defunct Superclubs Breezes in Montego Bay. We stayed in the Caribbean Beachfront Grande Luxe Walkout Club Level Room - WGB room category in the Frangipani...

My husband and I just returned from a week in heaven!! Also know as the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The resort was absolutely beautiful and extremely well maintained. The rooms were lovely. The food was outstanding, especially the French food at Bayside on our last night. We loved...

I can't really fault this place and Antigua is a nice place too. As we have found before the staff are great in all aspects of the place. The restaurants are all different but all good. Choice for breakfast locations and food supplied is superb. This is our second Sandals experience and both have been fabulous. The only negative for...

The food is awful and not served hot , For example there were chafing dishes used for lunch buffet. None of them had sternos resulting in...

Had to sadly leave the resort yesterday after a 7 night stay for our 3rd anniversary. This was my 7th trip to a Sandals/Beaches resort. The resort was amazing from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The staff were all friendly and happy to stop and chat with you. We were impressed with the way the staff...

My husband and I are in our mid sixties, I did worry that Sandals would be full of bright, young things. But we jokingly renamed it Saga Sandals! We fitted in fine. Of course there were lots of young couples but there were certainly LOTS our age and older. We arrived at the airport and asked where Sandals check in...
