Our Opinion
This resort has seen better days and from what we hear is in need of some renovations and service improvements. Might be better to look at other resorts in the area until this one improves.

Set on 40 spectacularly landscaped acres with a glorious white-sand beach, you will find a great variety of activities at the Grand Royal Antiguan such as snorkeling (the Andes 1905 shipwreck is located offshore), tennis, and guided hikes to nearby Fort Barrington with its stunning views of St. John's Harbour. With its good value, excellent food and facilities - including an electronic casino with video-poker and slot machines - this is a long-time favourite!
Location: On the beach on Antigua's western coast, 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the capital, St. John's.

Tired and Overpriced

My recommendation is do not book to stay in this hotel until it has been completely refurbished.A tired, once grand building which had had only the basic essential repairs since it opened in the 1980's;Rooms are clean but the bathrooms lack hot water, with the shower fittings failing daily.The restaurant is disappointing - overpriced with shocking service even for the expected relaxed approach in the Caribbean.Breakfast is expensive, food is sparse, service is slow with many guests leaving the breakfast room part way through the process as they had just run out of time or lost the will to live.Lunch and Dinner again expensive and lacking in presentation & service.Staff did their best but this hotel is sadly lacking.

Antigua Visit

The Grand Royal Antiguan Beach Hotel is located on the outskirts of the Capital City St.John. The hotel is quiet, spacious with beautiful manicured lawns. The food was enjoyable and the front desk staff were efficient.ConsThe sporting facilities such as Tennis Courts were not maintained and are overrun by vegetation. Fans were used in the rooms to supplement the use of unserviceable air conditioning.

The hotel was advertised on a hotel booking website at a decent rate. This was a reasonable price compered to other hotels in Antigua at the time of this year . So I went shared and booked it . However with the taxes the prices was exactly the same than any other decent hotels .When approaching the hotelIn the taxi , It looked deserted and completely empty . I went to check in and the staff just asked me to fill the form and explained where my rooms was . There was no explanation of where to get food , how the restaurant works, where the swimming poolWas .... no thing . I went to my room and let's say that although the main room had been re painted , the bathroom completely needs doing . On top of that Using the shower I had hot water only once.The balcony is a screwed piece of metal to the wall which is completely wobbly . Being on the 8th floor , I was slightly concerned .Deserted hotel , deserted restaurant . No atmosphere and it is a shame because with such a beautiful beach there is a big potential . Unfortunately , I won't give it a second trial . Sorry

my family's stay at the Grand Royal Antigua was wonderful and the view and atmosphere was beautiful. The room was clean and comfortable. the staff was very polite and pleasant. the meal at the restaurant was very delicious. My problem was that they did not indicate if the money were EC or US currency. we walked to the beach (Sidehim,ll beach) was very nice, the water was very clear, warm and inviting. free wifi is offered

We were anchored in Deep Bay and had booked dinner at the restaurant. At one time, I am sure this was one of the nicest hotels in Antigua. The hotel was in shambles. At first we thought this was the "Hotel California" It turned out we were the only people for dinner...which was horrible. If you anchor in the wonder Deep Bay, I would recommend eating on your boat. One thing...the sunset was AWESOME there.
