The Verandah Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My husband and 4 year old son enjoyed our vacation at this resort! We stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom suite which had a pool for all suite rooms. The rooms are spacious and clean and all have large verandahs! The grounds are very lush full of plants and flowers very well kept.The staff are helpful and friendly! A special thank you to Neville in the Seabreeze restaurant ! Neville was so kind to remember me mentioning a sauce I was trying to purchase and she bought it in town on her own time and gave it to me by surprise as a gift - she wouldn't take money for it. So thoughtful I am very grateful and appreciate her kindness very much. We enjoyed all the restaurants especially the beach restaurant for lunch and Nicole's for a special dinner the steak and lobster entrees are amazing also the molten lava chocolate cake ! The beaches are beautiful , the pool is huge and relaxing , mini golf is surprisingly very well done and entertaining for kids and adults ! The kids club is very nice with a large playground and splash pool. We will definitely be back!
room 253. Stayed for 2 weeks lovely resort - food great, accomodation clean, bed very comfortable .Only 2 small niggles would be better to have more than 1 bar open at night.& mixers can go off- especially diet coke !!! bleugh- but branded alcohol a positive. Entertainment mostly good- fire/ limbo guy fantastic. We did extreme circumnavigation which although expensive was worth it So shout out to fantastic staff who make this resort - Dougie & Carlos - watersport, Iran and Tanya - seabreeze thank you for our lovely holiday
This place is definitely the bee's-knees in holiday settings. Two dedicated beaches and three pools (Main, adults only, and a kid's pool) should be enough to satisfy any family's needs. Although we went as a couple we noticed a lot of activities for children , young and older. The rooms are all semi-detached bungalows/chalets which can be opened up, with a connecting door on the balcony, into a double for larger families. We booked a Waterfront Suite (Room 126 'Tamarind') and the view over the bay each morning was breath-taking. Because all rooms are single story the hotel is spread over a vast area, but don't be put off by this because there are dedicated golf buggy drivers who, will take you to wherever you wish to go on-site. All it takes is a quick phone call '0' to reception to order one, and phones are all over the site for this purpose. Food choice is very good, and it is well presented with something for every taste. I can personally recommend the oatmeal porridge and jerk chicken in particular, but not in the same bowl of course! Evening meals in the Sea Breeze restaurant are on a themed basis. or you can book at customer services for the Buccaneer or the Beach Bar & Grill, or, if you are prepared to pay extra, Nicole's. The gymnasium has a large selection of equipment, and is conveniently close to the main pool. If I had to fault this place at all it is that some of the chalets are starting to show their ten year age. This is merely cosmetic however, and is not intended to detract from the standard of cleanliness and hygiene which is quite excellent, and is a credit to the housekeeping staff who work extremely hard. The staff are very helpful, and I would like to single out Gregg, who drives a golf buggy, is an accomplished site-guide and general factotum, and is genuinely one of those people for whom nothing is too much trouble when it comes to customer satisfaction. He is also a humorous and friendly chap, and it was he, above all others, who made our holiday great, along with Iran in the restaurants and Carlos and Olsen and their buddies down on the main beach who took us out on the hobie-cats no less than three times during our fortnight's stay. In conclusion, there are more expensive hotels in Antigua, but I would assert that it would be very hard, if not impossible, to find a hotel with all these facilities and excellent service at these prices. The Verandah Hotel and Spa have therefore set the bar very high. .
We had a fantastic time here for 10 nights celebrating my parents 40th wedding anniversary & renewal of vows. The setting was beautiful, service was fantastic and thanks to Andrea who organized it.There was lots to do to keep us and the children entertained- various water sports on the beach, volly ball, crazy golf, table tennis and lots more. We hired the Calypso Cat boat privately for our 11 family members (06/06/17) for a 4 hour trip. The crew were fantastic, fun, friendly and very knowledgeable. Feeding the fish when snorkelling enticing so many which he told us all about what species they were. We would recommend this as an excursion.Sting Ray city was amazing and again would recommend this.The English Harbour tour however was a let down. As we had a large party and young children they recommend that we hire a taxi who would take us round the island (including the English Harbour), so it would be the same as the Pink Panther Safari tour. However the driver barely spoke to us and so many things were closed. Very disappointing.The evening entertainment was enjoyable. The fire limbo dancer was by far the best! The managers evening on the Rasta beach was a good night with a buffet and raffle (which we won a dinner for 2 voucher for the Pineapple Beach club which was excellent).The staff on reception, guest services , buggy drivers and gift shop staff was very friendly and helpful. Although I will say that about 90% of the bar staff & maids were friendly but the other 10% were miserable. The waiters at the restaurants were friendly, but struggled to take orders and serve the correct food. The food was at a good standard with a variety of food available. If we visited Antigua again we would come back here and would recommend this as a family destination.
We stayed here back in 2012 (wouldn't let me select that hence travel date is wrong) & I have just had notification I had not finished my review! Anyway, we were greeted very warmly with a cold drink and check in was quick and easy. A train/buggy (like you see in many resorts) took us and our luggage to our room and these were available at certain stops throughout the resort or by phoning for one from your room - makes getting around easier in the heat. The resort needed one or two touch ups but nothing major and is very beautiful. I was with my husband and son (18 at the time) and our room was lovely with an amazing view from our balcony/verandah - we stayed in a waterfront room. As we are all big nature lovers, the wildlife around the resort was a bonus and throughout the resort we saw several mongoose, different types of frogs, lizards and crabs to name a few as well as many birds including humming birds. None of these are intrusive if you are not keen as we actively sought them out. The only exception being birds at breakfast but if you go up one at at time so there is always one of you at the table they won't come near your table. We didn't bother with many trips, just St Johns (not a great trip) and party night on a Sunday at Shirley nights where everything is expensive if you want food but great fun. We tended to spend the morning at the main pool and the afternoon at the adult only smaller but lovely pool, also enjoyed the beautiful beach. Food in all restaurants was fine, nothing exceptional but no complaints. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. We had no hot water the afternoon we arrived so as we finished unpacking we called reception to let them know. We went for some food so gone about and hour and by the time we got back to the room, it had been sorted and no further problems arose. It was a very chilled holiday, first time all inclusive and loved it, no wristbands, no carying cash, all added to the relaxation as we literally did not have to worry about a thing. We would go back without hesitation.
