We are a typical English family; me, my wife (the boss), together with our 17 year old son and 15 year old daughter. We set off for the Royal Antiguan Hotel from London on Christmas Day 2004. Having read the reviews on this web site, after we had booked, we were apprehensive about what we were going to find. After...

We just got back from the Royal Antiguan and I must say it was a lovely week. The weather was great and the beach was beautiful. The hotel is definitely a three star when it comes to general appearance (e.g., needs a paint job, some floral arrangements, paintings here and there, etc.); however, you easily overlook these little flaws after...

My husband and myself went to the Royal Antiguan in March for our honeymoon.It was the first visit to the caribean for both of us so we didn't really know what to expect. First impressions were good,reception area being clean but not having enough staff to deal with arrivals(when you've sat on a plane for 9 hours you want to...

After reading the reviews i was scepticle to say the least. The staff were wonderful & i must say whoever said the staff were rude should maybe look at there own attitude. Whenever i thanked the staff for service the reply was always "your welcome" and was said with meaning. I would not hesitate to return. I did not find...

We have visited quite a few all inclusive resorts but this is one of the nicest we have stayed at. The food, atmosphere and service were much better than average. This one offers a lot of value for the money. The overall setting is visually pleasing and the view from the rooms (we upgraded to the bay view room and...

If you are looking for a paradise beach with calm clear waters, white salt like sand and plenty of privacy, then this is definitely the resort for you!!!!! If you want to spend all your time in the hotel complex and not on the beach - go elsewhere!!! POSITIVES 1.Beach/ Lagoon - a most unusual but spectacular combination which results...

We stayed at the RA for the first 2 weeks of May. I have to say it was probably one of the best holidays I have ever had, however the hotel and staff were appalling. The people we met there made it great. We used the beach during the day, and left the resort in the evening. The smell in...

Stayed for 2 weeks at Christmas 2003 and had a fantastic time. The hotel is in a good location with beautiful, well kept grounds but the buildings are generally a bit tired and in need of some refurbishment. We booked an all inclusive Ocean view room which gave great views from the balcony and you could watch the cruise ships...

Before going to the Royal Antiguan (RA), my girlfriend & I read literally all the reviews here, so we thought we had a pretty good idea of what to expect on our vacation. First, some background. We're in our mid-thirties, and I like activities while my girlfriend just likes to chill on the beach or by the pool. Neither of...
