Make sure you go to the restaurants before 8:30 or you may not be able to eat what you want. They run out of select foods. The food was very good and the drinks are flowing. The beach is public so prepare to be bombarded by vendors. The excursions are fun and consume most of your day. Make sure you...

First and foremost, a few years ago, I stayed at the Sandals resort in Ocho Rios and was so impressed with the experience that I decided to try Sandals again. Within this review, I will cover the good and bad of our stay which was for 5 days and 4 nights with 2 other couples. The Sandals Antigua resort was...

My husband and I went to Sandals Grande Antigua last July for our honeymoon and had a fabulous time. We stayed in a concierge level room with a shared pool right outside. We loved the stocked bar and how they would bring or add whatever you asked for or liked best. The resort is beautiful and our room was also...

First of all, this is a review written by two normal people on their honeymoon from Pennsylvania, our expectations were not out of control, and therefore we were not disappointed by stupid things. Arriving in Antigua: The airport process in Antigua was fine, everything went smoothly. Do watch for the workers trying to grab your bags for you, they are...

My husband and I (35 and 38) went to Sandals Grand Antigua to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary (6 days). I am confused about other reviews that say the experience and food was awful -- this was the best vacation we have ever taken. Sandals accounted for everything -- very tasty food and top shelf drinks, beautiful scenery (the grounds...

Hard to find words to describe what an amazing time we had at Sandals Antigua. Gorgeous setting for our son and new daughter-in-laws wedding. The wedding planner was so helpful and made sure all the little details were taken care of to make it even more special. The food was excellent and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. Plenty...

We had a non-refundable credit to Sandals after a friend's wedding was rained out (thanks, Hurricane Irene!) so we stayed at this resort. The grounds are beautiful, as is the pool. Our room was spacious and clean. However, for the price, I could have gotten a better experience elsewhere. First of all, the food is awful. It looks beautiful and...

For our honeymoon we spent a week at Sandals Antigua - it was great! The resort was in excellent condition with regular care and maintainence going on. The view on the beach was picture perfect.
