This as a top end all inclusive. We were quite happy there. Comfortable rooms, helpful staff and beautiful grounds. A lot is said anout the dress code. Dont worry, only one of the eateries is kind of dress up. I was a bit dissapointed in the Scuba diving. Most divers are required to take their refresher course (not free) and...

The property was beautiful. The food was great. Weather was great. My only compliant was that our bed was HORRIBLE. It creaked and was uncomfortable. The creaking woke me up and I attempted to change rooms but they said they were full so they attempted to fix the bed. It was better but still not how a hotel bed should...

Someone has to mop up the water in the lobby when it rains, it was 2 hours or more and u had to walk thru water to get to breakfast, which is unacceptable. Anyone could slip and fall, absolutely terrible. The lobby is the most important area as everyone goes there. Everything else was great, but that is a big...

Could it be the fact I have worn the same shorts everyday and carried the same backpack? Maybe the fact that I wear...

We have been to one other Sandals resort prior to this and have visited 9 of the Caribbean islands prior to visiting Antigua. We had a beachfront room #112 on the Caribbean side of the resort...

My husband and I have stayed at this resort 13 times! We come for the relaxation, the beach and the great weather that Antigua has to offer. Our last trip to Antigua was December 2016. It clearly is at the point the resort needs to update some key things. The room was never vacuumed each day. We know this because...

My husband and I visited Sandals Grande Antigua 11/19--11/26/2016. I am late in reviewing, but better late than never. We travelled with two couples that we met 2 years prior at Sandals Whitehouse (South Coast). I am giving this resort 5 stars. Was everything perfect? No. Was it a perfect vacation for us? Yes. I firmly believe a vacation is...
