Return visitor to Sandals Antigua

We have visited this Sandals 2 times in the last two years. The hotel is located on Dickenson Bay about 20 minutes from the airport. We passed through immigration very smooth and friendly no issues. The hotel is spread out along the beach. The beach is very clean. The staff were very friendly and very helpful with whatever you need help with. We had an excellent choice of restaurants. Great steak restaurant (Ok corral) Kimonos was entertaining and great food. Lots of choices of pools all through the resort and a large pool with swim up bar available. This was our 21 visit to a Sandals and we are seniors now but we have never had an issue at any Sandals. All the staff at each of the resorts we visited have been excellent. At Antigua both times we visited over the last 2 years the top managers can be seen every day out checking all the facilities every day. The general Manager whose name is Mr. G could be seen every day talking to all the guests around the pools and even in the restaurants checking to see that everything was running smoothly. If you visit this resort you will meet Mr G. An excellent manager.

The strong points
Staff and managers were excellent. A beautiful resort on a beautiful island.

The weak points
There are no weak points. All is good.


Fantastic service from start to finish! A Sandals shuttle from the airport to the Resort, champagne and personal attention in the lobby as we waited to check in, and that didn't take long at all. Our room was great and there was no need to change it. An oceanview and interior design as paid for, and frankly we didn't need a room that nice. Next time we will go more basic on the room and save money that way.We didn't spend enough time in the room we had to justify its luxury. This Sandals has 10 or 11 different restaurants to pick from, all with great food, and unfortunately my weigh-scale shows it! MANY on-site activities are included in the price and the snorkeling was great. There are aprox 750 staff on-site, a ratio of about 1:1 re guests, and they are all VERY cheerful, friendly, courteous, and helpful. The grounds of this particular Resort are amazingly landscaped and beautiful! We will definitely return to a Sandals, although we will try a different location to compare. Next time, we will be more active about going to the gym and going on excursions. The beach is very nice. Yes there are numerous local peddlars marketing their wares but they do NOT harass people and if spoken to politely, they will act in kind. This vacation EXCEEDED our expectations. Special mention for going above and beyond goes to Gemma the Manager at The Drunken Duck, Violet at the Barefoot Restaurant, and Telice at the Bayshore Restaurant. Sandals also is great at providing gluten-free alternatives at most if not all of their restaurant locations here. We met lots of great people (guests) from England, USA, and Canada. It's a tiring travel experience from Calgary through Toronto then down and back up, but it is what it is. It was a dream vacation.

Excellent resort

This was a surprise trip for my wife which ended up as a wonderful surprise for both of us. It was a great trip form beginning to end.The resort was gorgeous the beach fabulous the food and service top notch. The people were very friendly and helpful. The concierge was excellent in making our stay memorable. We enjoyed it so much that we made resesrvations to return again next year. We elected to return to Antigua but you are offered deals on other sandals resorts We definitely recommend this resort.

The strong points
The beach. Although there are seveal pools we stayed on the beach. Choice of food was very good. Activities are plentiful

The weak points
Vendors are present on the beach are but with a polite no thank you they move on. For many this is a living for them.

Sandals Grande Antigua

This place was amazing. Staff were overly friendly and the beach was to die for.

The strong points
Beautiful beach; excellent food; loved the wine

The weak points
Not enough beach huts or umbrellas at the pools. Its almost as if they are forcing you to get butler service to automatically get a beach hut saved.
