Our Opinion

Beautiful rooms, excellent service and world class dining. Like most of the Sandals Resorts, the Grande Antigua is top notch and treats its guest with only the best in hospitality. It is not surprising that this resort has been awarded a Six Star Diamond Award for hospitality. Great for couples.


Please note: Sandals Grande Antigua will be closed for maintenance work beginning late September 2017 through the winter.

Voted The World's Leading Honeymoon Resort, the Sandals Grande Antigua boasts a dazzling array of inclusions. Imagine champagne breakfasts - in bed! Beach valets to offer misting bottles of fragrant water for instant refreshment. A restaurant with white glove service, and a late night Seafood and Caribbean experience. No wonder they call Sandals the "ultra all-inclusive resorts"!

Location: On Antigua's beautiful 2-mile beach at Dickenson Bay, 20 minutes from the airport and a 10 minute drive to St. John's.

Anniversary August 8-16 20017

We stayed 8 days here the resort is beautiful we stayed in beach front walk out room which was wonderful loved how close to the beach you are and very quite on this side Now as far as service they never restock the refrigerator we had to ask serval times to the point it was ridiculous I've read other reviews about this problem also I really think someone who's over this should take a hint!Food was not bad wonderful breakfast buffet and the Italian restaurant was very good so was barefoot The cafe where you get crepes is good but you better get them early even though they stay open till 10:30 at night I can promise you you want get one with all the things they offer because they remove it and put it away and refused to get it out saying we are finish I guess meaning we are to lazy to get it this made us so mad! and yes we even sent an email to the General manager about this with no response Now as far as the staff they need help! They are not friendly they look at you as you are asking them to cut off their arm if you ask for something or need something Will I return yes I'm sure I will but next time I will know what to expect Oh and the entertainment is a joke Sandals really need to step it up!

Amazing Anniversary!

We stayed in Antigua for our Anniversary April 2016. An amazing resort catering to couples. Great stay in the Caribbean side, the rooms were a bit run down need of refurbishment. Other the that the beach spectacular, service amazing, food amazing... The actual island is a hidden gem. Normally don't like to travel to the same place twice but for sure will be returning one day.

Another Tough Day in Paradise!

Wonderful stay. Cannot say enough about the staff at Sandals Grande Antigua. They went out of their way to make our visit one to be remembered. They are lead by MR. "G.", who like a great leader credits the team/staff for the success of the resort. We had 0 issues getting chairs on the beach or pool. we could get one any time of the day without any issues. A few people we would like to recognize for making our visit special are Odayne at the Drunken Duck, Latoya bartender at the Carribbean Pool and Sylvia at Cafe de Paris. They always had a smile on their face and went the extra mile to make sure our needs were meet. Thank you. All in all a great visit, and we woud return again.
