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.

Overview
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.

Was okay

At the time of travel, the hotel was being renovated, slowly but surely I guess. I imagine that it was quite majestic in its day. The staff was friendly. The pool was dirty and there were ducks in there.Our room offered a majestic view of the ocean though.

I liked it!

Was apprehensive about selecting this hotel due to the noted poor ratings. Decided to stay there due to the near proximity to St. John's. So I went there with limited expectations. I was surprisingly pleased with my stay there. Very friendly staff especially Mr. Joseph at the front desk. Maybe I was just there at the right time but the environment was peaceful and quiet. The property is attached to a beautiful beach that captivates the most picturesque sunsets. There is an adequate restaurant on the property and a nice pool. The rooms are clean with mini fridge and Wifi. There is a small exercise room that can use some upgrading or at least the addition of some free weights but has a universal machine and is serviceable. The only downer was during my checkout dealing with a rather rude woman at the desk. Overall I would still give it a thumbs up!

Worst hotel i have stayed in!

I booked through Expedia for 2 weeks sunshine. The website said the hotel had 3 restaurants, 5 bars, casino, spa, gym, jacuzzi and pool. A casino and nightly entertainment. There was 1 bar, no poolside bar, a dirty pool, no casino, no entertainment, broken loungers and 1 restaurant that served inedible food from a menuthat had 4 choices (1 veg) and two not available. The menu did not change while we were there.

Horrible experience

Stayed at this hotel for Christmas 2016. It was as many other people stated... completely deserted. Which wasn't the biggest problem. The pools were disgustingly dirty with trash and debris. It was a complete health hazard. There weren't any lounge chairs set up or available. The tennis court is in complete shambles. The playground rusted and dilapidated. The amenities listed on their website were completely absent. Nothing on their website was accurate, it is all a big scam. The "casino" they list on their website as well as the multiple restaurants - ALL ABSENT. They had 1 restaurant open the 2 days I was there. It had feral cats running through it. The manager said to not to touch them so they very aware of the problem.

A Rip Off

I was quite disgusted that we were sold this holiday; the pictures on the website gave us the impression that this is an active vibrant hotel. There was a few people there it was like we were in a ghost town, most of the hotel is closed for renovation, there was an empty swimming pool, a pool with dirty water, slippery walking surface it was quite frightening at times.Our room, the food at the restaurant and the beach was very nice. We had a very nice stay because we always make the best of a bad situation.
