Great stay. Hospitable staff. Other guests looked quite at home. Good access to public trans, eateries, food&drug mart and to the beach.Wonderful scenery. . . .breathtaking view from Carmichaels restaurant It was good to dine undisturbed by flies.
We redeemed our Aveda points for a stay at Sugar Ridge. It did not disappoint! We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed our entire stay. The staff was very friendly and made us welcome from the start with rum drinks. A great way to start a vacation. Our room was clean, the air conditioner worked well, the shower was amazing. We enjoyed the splash pool every afternoon on our deck. The view was incredible! The food at both of the restaurants was wonderful. We particularly enjoyed Carmichael's. The view alone was worth the price of admission from atop the mountain over looking the Caribbean. The included breakfast was a nice way to start each day. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next visit.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we couldn't have been happier with the choice of hotel and location. All of the staff were superb; friendly, accommodating and would go out of their way. As we visited in their winter it was probably quieter for us than their usual busy period so perhaps we had a different (& maybe better) experience than if we had been there in Nov/Dec which they say is really busy. We had the pools to ourself most days and even the beaches there were only a handful of people on. Our room was clean and had plenty of hanging space for clothes, spacious bathroom and balcony area. We had a plunge pool too which was a nice touch and absolutely wonderful views over the pool etc. Yes it is hilly and even as young, active 30 year olds it was a struggle to walk to the infinity pool at the top as it was so steep however all you have to do is call reception and they will take you to/from whenever you like. This is the same with the beaches, there is a shuttle at set times but if you are at the beach and wanted to leave sooner the people in the bar will call the hotel and they will collect you ASAP. The drinks are also included on the two beaches they take you to (if you are staying all inclusive which we were). The restaurant food was amazing. You are seated and given menus so you can pick what you like which is so much better than going into an all inclusive area where you help yourself and which can be like a cattle market. The menus did change slightly each night too. I am a fussy eater but there was something I liked every night and it was absolutely delicious. It felt like you were eating 5* restaurant food but as all inclusive guests did not have to pay a penny for it. It was very quiet in the evenings at the bar area with only a couple of guests there and live music on a few nights which was really good. We do like more of an atmosphere in the evenings (nothing going on in Jolly Harbour nearby because of the season) but it was still enjoyable for us as we had spent the week previous to arriving here in Vegas and New York so relaxing was high on the agenda. The staff are a credit to the hotel, they made you feel welcome and were chatty and so helpful. Cannot fault the hotel or the stay whatsoever. It was also the setting of our engagement so it will be remembered forever as a very special place to us (room 6) and we hope to return one day in the future. Thank you for an amazing place to celebrate my 30th birthday and our engagement!
Honestly the best...exceptional hospitality from the moment we arrived. Sugar Ridge ticked all the boxes, a perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary!Location was outstanding, exceptional views from our room (60), sunset over the sea and panoramic view of Jolly Harbour. Secluded spot at the top of the hill. Close to outstanding restaurant, Carmichael's and infinity pool. Excellent shuttle in air conditioned cars between room and main reception, available whenever required.Rooms are top standard, four poster beds which are very comfortable Restaurants and bars of very high standard, cuisine excellent.Throughout the day transport provided to the local beaches, which are just fantastic.Amenities at beaches excellent, lovely bars/restaurants and restrooms.Hotel provide towels for both beach and pools. Such a helpful touch.The most important and impressive part of this little part of paradise was the staff...impossible to name everyone but I would like to thank particularly some: Jolee, Cherissa, Alissa, Tori, Brian, Kevin, Glendon, Carleen, Shanice and Prince.Everyone was so kind, considerate, thoughtful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble, all ready to help. They all made the magic happen for us!Antigua is a very special place with very special people.
We had the most amazing time here. They made our honeymoon and our time there special. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating and couldn't have asked for anything better. They were prompt and were helpful!
