I will try to make this short:) I always stay two weeks for vacation and I'm glad I did not stay here two weeks, I was so bored I could not wait to go home. I don't complain and pick on small things when I travel but I was very disappointed with this Sandals. For the money we spent not...

While it was a little more money than we wanted to spend we had a wonderful time from the time we arrived to the time we left. ALL of the playmakers worked exceptionally hard to get everyone involved and to enjoy the activities. Really enjoyed participating in the lovers game and the daily pool activities. Everyone was friendly, professional and...

For the past 10 years we have travelled south every year for an all inclusive holiday. We have stayed at 3.5 to 5 star resorts throughout the Caribbean. SAG is definitely the best resort yet. Within an hour of our plane landing we were through customs, got our luggage and were whisked away to the resort. We stayed in a...

We were lucky enough to spend 10 glorious days at Sandals Antigua in November 2012, and had so much fun that we went back for another 10 days in February, just 3 months later. Both times we stayed in the Med Village area, although we have stayed in the Caribbean Grove area 3 other visits, and that was wonderful too....

It was the first time on this island and we loved it! Perfect weather, friendly islanders and exceptional service. The resort exceeded our expectations, since most all inclusive's are usually just fair. It was clean, great service and delicious food. Lots of options for eating and drinking. The only thing we would improve is the entertainment. Not much to do...

Overall: As with most reviews we read on TripAdvisor we disregarded the top 10% and bottom 10% of comments and booked here despite the occasional bashing. We found the entire location and vacation to be great and what we would expect for the money we spent. Property: Well kept but not perfect, constantly working. They’re hearing the comments on Trip...

Recently spent 2 weeks at Sandals Grande Antigua. Fantastic holiday from start to finish. Started by going to Sandals kiosk just outside airport where we were quickly transferred by mini bus to Sandals. Greeted with hot towels and glasses of chilled rose. After completing simple forms we were taken to 'our cottage' in the Caribbean side. Absolutely perfect location for...

“We chose a basic room. Most days we left the room at 8:30 am, returned at 5 to shower and get ready for dinner, then off to bed later.”
