We were looking for somewhere special to spend our 10th Anniversary and choose Sandals Grande after speaking to friends who stayed at the resort. After discussing with my husband we decided to do an Island hop and choose Antigua Grande and St. Lucia La Toc. Great choices! Upon arrival at each resort we were greeted by a staff member with...

We are at the resort now, towards the end of our stay during which we have been married here. I had such high expectations which haven't unfortunately been completely met and I probably wouldn't return here. The positives: -The grounds are immaculate and beautiful -Gorgeous beach -Friendly staff and service -Our wedding was perfect and the wedding planners and bridal...

Most people already know that Sandals is pretty top notch when it comes to all-inclusive vacationing. I just returned yesterday from my honeymoon where I spent a week here, and this was my third all-inclusive hotel stay - first Sandals. Since most people already know about the GOOD parts about Sandals, I'll give my tips for the newcomers as to...

Fanastic. Clean, comfortable, will surely be back. The Beach is so clean and safe. Loved not having to carry money around. We met some wonderful people from around the globe. We hope Sandals can can figure out a new policy on chairs (beds) by the pool. You need to get up at 6am and save a place at the pool.

Simply the very best vacation experience I've ever had! Everything at the resort has outdone my expectations. We stayed at all inclusive resorts in the past, but Sandals Antigua was certainly on another level.

I can say after one visit this ranks as one of my favorite Sandals resorts, and I would like to visit again one day. BEACH: The beach is important to me even though I spend more time at the pool. This beach was very nice-- easy to swim in, little sea weed, and soft sand. The vendors are there, only...

PROS * Large spacious rooms with great air con and cable TV. * WiFi works throughout the resort well enough for basic use on the free service (it's throttled so you can pay more for better bandwidth if you wish). * Great beach and plenty of coastline directly off the resort. It is public but a simple "no thanks" will...

This was our second visit in as many years. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. We stayed in room 606 and were poolside. Loved our pool so close and the round pool close by with a bar and daily volleyball til 4pm. Loved the bartender, though I cannot remember her name. Every one of the employees greeted you whenever we passed and...

We have had several friends and family stay and rave about the sandals experience. I have to say we must have had an older resort in the portfolio because we were not impressed at all. The good was it is a beautiful island and hotel grounds, beach was fabulous and massage was best we have had. The opportunities ultimately came...
