Naast het fraaie tropische landschap zijn vooral de witte zandstranden de smaakmakers van Antigua. Het eiland telt maar liefst 365 stranden; voor elke dag één! Maar niet voor niets is het motto op Antigua “The beach is just the beginning” ; er is namelijk nog veel meer te doen op dit prachtige eiland en de vele bezienswaardigheden zijn echt een bezoek waard. Schitterende natuur met regenwouden, vele vogelsoorten en een kleurrijke onderwaterwereld met veel koralen en vissoorten; het is slechts een kleine greep uit al dat moois.
"Sandals Grande Antigua is Paradise"

"5 price - 3 star experience"
Our first experience of Sandals for our honeymoon. Our agent booked this for a special holiday experience and we "upgraded" to the Club level and had a room described as the Honeymoon suite. Our expectations having read the Sandals webpage, were high. Our flight was late departing (no fault of Sandals) and on arrivals at the airport and hotel, we were made to feel as though we had spoilt the staff's plans. We were very disappointed that Sandals did not have their own transport from the airport and we were bundled after a long delay outside, into the most tatty and questionable minibus. The driver seemed intent on pushing the van in front all the way to the hotel and our cases became airborne over the speed bumps! During the stay, there was no recognition that we were on honeymoon. Nothing was special about the room and nothing was done to the room to make it special for us. On one day mid way through our stay, the room service made two swans from the towels, which then gradually collapsed over the next few days. The hotel is clean and tidy and always felt safe. Sad to say that most of the staff, particularly in the restaurants were pleasant but not really bothered about the level of service. On several occasions we witnessed glasses being dropped and broken, only after a long delay was a minimal effort made to sweep up the broken glass, leaving shards on the floor with customers in bare feet or sandals. The food was average to poor, well below our expectations and no worthy of Sandals. On one occasion we ordered Swordfish and got Salmon, when this was pointed out, the lady shrugged her shoulders and said she ticked the wrong box. When we looked at the next table who had swordfish, we stuck to the Salmon! Having been there for two weeks, the hotel repeats the daily paper and events every week. This shows a slight lack of imagination. As we had been introduced to the management team on the first Monday night beach BBQ, I never observed any of the team walking around the resort. They should be out there checking for feedback. When in mentioned the to the manager(Mr G) on the second Monday, the next day managers were seen for the first time. Antigua was fantastic and this hotel has huge potential, but what we experienced has tainted our opinion of Sandals. We came home relaxed but very disappointed having paid for a luxury holiday and honeymoon experience. Mr G said he would give me his email for us to feedback, but even this did not happen. We so wanted to love the Sandals experience, but would be reluctant to try again ....... Left deflated
"Lovely top quality all inclusive resort spoilt by the sun lounger morning scramble"
This was the second time my wife and I visited the Sandals resort in Antigua. We stayed in a Mediterranean room. Beware, some of the rooms are very tired, in desperate need of modernisation. We returned because we enjoyed our first holiday so much. The resort is beautiful with lovely gardens. The all inclusive is very good; great choice of restaurants with a good selection of drinks at the bars. For some reason you are only 'allowed' a limited selection of wine in the restaurants and the in room mini bar spirits are only local brands. The best restaurant by far is Eleanor's, for dinner or breakfast. Mario's, OK Corral and Bayside are good. We did not book Kimono on this holiday mainly because I am vegetarian. My least favourite restaurant was the Barefoot beach side restaurant because the food was not very good. I think it would be better if this restaurant offered a more relaxed cafe style menu. There are smaller outlets where you can get snacks all day; burgers, pizza, cookies, crepes, coffee, cakes, etc. These are all good quality. The staff are mostly locals and their manner reflects their culture. They are proud and do not expect to be looked down upon. They often appear to be uninterested but in reality will go out of their way to help. Also, if you smile and take the trouble to talk to them they are really friendly. The beach is beautiful. It is not private but, with the exception of the locals selling junk, it feels private. There are nine (I think) swimming pools though we stayed around the main pool in the Mediterranean side. This pool is very lively with music and games. This is an addition since we last visited. I am not sure about the games but it adds a bit of fun and there are other quiet pools if you don't like it. I believe the free water sports are good but I did not use any of them. I am a health, fitness and exercise freak so this holiday was about over indulging and recharging the batteries for a week. The BIG issue is the sun loungers and umbrellas. It is totally unnecessary to have the situation where people set alarm clocks to get up very early to lay claim to a sun lounger. This is what I would expect in a two or three star hotel. This issue could easily be solved by investing in a few more loungers and umbrellas (contact me and I will tell you how other hotels I have visited resolved the problem). The gardens are beautiful and extensive. With a little careful thought additional loungers could be positioned tastefully. The holidaymakers are a mix of honeymooners and 'older' couples. Sadly, we fall into the latter group. This mix might not suit everyone but is what you should expect from an adults only resorts - all the 30-somethings have kids in tow so are not invited. In summary, this is a very good but not perfect holiday which could easily be made better. The loungers are the reason I gave the holiday four stars instead of five. Having said that I will probably go back soon :)
"Consistent quality in this resort"
Nice big room in the Mediterranean block. Level 2, try to get level 4 or 5 for better sea views. Lovely friendly helpful staff throughout, great cocktails, very nice Surf and Turf at Barefoot by beach - or in my wife's case Surf and Surf, 2 nice lobster tails as she doesn't eat meat. The Cafe de Paris is great , the ladies cope brilliantly with being quite busy and the coffees, cakes and crepes are excellent. Sandals note , this place is a must for any top resort.
"Honestly the best resort we have been too so far."
My wife and myself visited Sandals Antigua from Sunday November 27th 2016 to Sunday December 4th 2016. We stayed in room 801 on the Sunset Bluff walk out room. Our arrival at VC Bird airport was great. Airport was completely dead. We were amongst the first off the plane and customs and getting our luggage and then outside took a grand total of about 15 minutes. Checked in at the Sandals desk outside and we were on our way to the resort. The drive was only 15 minutes and we were ready to start our vacation. We arrived at around 1pm so our room wasn't quite ready but we checked in at the Club Sandals lounge (cold cloth to wipe your face and a cold glass of champagne as you fill out your info) in the Caribbean section and went for lunch at the Bayside restaurant. About an hour later we got our room. I was pleasantly surprised as I know this room is in an older section but you can tell it was completely redone. It felt very new inside. The bed is high off the ground and comfortable and the bathroom was excellently appointed. TV was great, all english speaking channels and you could bring movies on a USB stick and plug it into the television as well. We were the first room on the bottom floor so outside we didn't have anyone beside us on the one side so it was very quiet and private. This is a Coke resort and we knew that ahead of time so I had emailed Mr G asking for Pepsi as that is what my wife drinks and we had Pepsi all week which is great customer service, thanks to Shemar for making sure we had Pepsi in our room. The mini bar is plentiful, it contained water, canned and bottled beer, juice, pop, full bottle of red and white wine. At the end of each day we would sit on our patio drinking a bottle of wine. There was also full bottles up top of Rum, Gin, Vodka and Whisky and also a bottle of Champagne. Whatever you drank was replenished daily. The room was VERY clean. Housekeeping was always done in the morning so it worked out perfect that when we stopped back in at lunch it was already done. I love this section of the resort as it's perfectly located between the Caribbean and Mediterranean sections of the resort. Takes an equal amount of time to walk to either side of the resort. Our pool was always empty all week so it felt like having our own big pool which I enjoyed. We won a free cabana on our first night there at the Sunday Night Cocktail party for Club Sandals guests. We used this Cabana for Wednesday Nov 30 and then we rented it again for Thursday December 1st. If you rent a Cabana for one day it's $100 and if you rent for more than one consecutive day it's $75 a day. This is money well spent. You have the Cabana from 9-5 so when you get there you can order breakfast from the menu. You have a full couch with table, and a Bistro set under the Cabana. You also have two loungers outside of the Cabana that are yours as well. There is also a cooler filled with Pop, beer, juice and water and they will fill this back up if you empty it out. The staff working here are fantastic and are by the Cabana probably every 30 minutes seeing if you need something. Cabana also has an outlet to charge your electronic devices. Cabana's 1-4 are closest to the Caribbean side and I feel are in the best location, numbers 5-11 were way on the other side and felt farther away from everything. We had Cabana number 2 for both days. The food at this resort was absolutely wonderful, no complaints here at all and we travel A LOT! This is our 12th all inclusive and this probably had the best food out of anywhere we have stayed. Highly recommend the Greek salad and Surf and Turf at the Barefoot restaurant. The Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich at the Courtyard Bistro was to die for. Special shout out to Dexter who made sure there was Philly Steak there for my wife as she had to have one daily. Dexter was very personable and a great asset to Sandals. If you like Sushi go to Soy every night before your meal elsewhere for appetizers, omg it is so good. There are cats at this resort which really made the trip special. These cats are well taken care of and there are three Cat Cafe stations around the resort where they feed them and give them water regularly. These cats are all fixed and have their shots. My wife brought down a bunch of cat treats for them Please don't feed them at or near the restaurant or near your room. Best place to feed them treats is near their cat cafe, just rattle the bag and they will come running. The views from this resort or absolutely amazing. There wasn't a bad picture you could take. Landscaping is gorgeous, buildings are beautiful. I preferred the Caribbean side because it had that special feel to it. Lots of little nook and crannies to sit with your spouse. I can see why it wins most romantic resort yearly. My wife's favourite spot to stop at daily was the Cafe Bistro, tons of treats, ice cream and different selections of coffee and tea and ice coffee. The coconut ice cream was the best. The Pizza place beside Mario's was great as well, delicious pizza. The towel game is in full effect here, it's like that at every resort we ever go to so I wasn't surprised at all. If this concerns you then go Butler level and no worries at all. Our pool on the bluff always had open chairs so I wasn't worried. I guess my only negative I could find was the night before we left we got our bill for any extras we bought, they charged me twice for the Internet as we had upgraded to Premium Internet and they also charged us for the free Cabana even though on the sheet it said "Prize Winner Cabana". This took a couple of trips to the lobby to correct over two days. They asked me for the voucher which I had to turn in to get the free Cabana so there seems to be some confusion over this for some reason. This is something that shouldn't happen. If I didn't pay attention to it I would have paid an extra $180 US more than I should have. I've seen other reviews where this has happened to other people so make sure you check your bill before you leave. Very important. Vendors on the beach weren't bad at all, they would approach you but just say you weren't interested and they would go away, probably the least pushy beach vendors we've ever come across to be honest with you. This resort is very close to ST John's, 10 minute drive. If you go to the top floor of the Mediterranean building you can see St Johns and see if there are any cruise ships at port that day. Cab is $12 each way. Would I recommend this resort or Sandals again? ABSOLUTELY! I think we are Sandals people now, this was our first Sandals experience and I can see why they have such a devoted following. I can't put my finger on what makes it so special but they do everything right. I am in fact planning our next Sandals trip as I write this. If you have any questions please feel free to message me.
