The Verandah Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Stayed here for 8 nights as part of a cricket tour organised by Howzat travel and found it to be absolutely amazing. The staff were very friendly and always had a smile on their face and would do what ever they could to accommodate. Spent a lot of time at the main beach and really enjoyed the free water sports. The main pool was also very good with plenty of loungers available and shade if you needed it. Devils bridge is within a short walk from the resort and this is well worth a visit. Food at all the restaurants was very good , with plenty of choice and frequently replenished wine glasses. We particularly enjoyed lunch at the beach bar and never found that we had to wait for a table. The only complaint we had was with the quality of the beer served at the main bar. This was at times undrinkable. Not sure if it was the beer itself or the glasses they served it in. Not quite so bad in the restaurants but poor from the main bar. Still plenty of other drinks to compensate. We did a tour of the island arranged with the taxis outside reception and it was much cheaper that way and we were taken to all of the best places.All in all a fantastic stay and I would thoroughly recommend this resort.
This is a beautiful place to stay and we will be return. The people are amazing and the food is awesome they do carter to people with food issue I did a excellent job at making my stay for food the best for I can't eat Gluten food wish I was still there
Resort is just ok; food is mediocre with most of the items not cooked properly-either cold or warm but mostly not right.Pool is crowded with kids with no supervision by life guards. At the beach, as well no life guard in duty despite having a lot of kids and elderly visitors. An Indian tourist swam in the shallow bay, got into trouble and drowned. Staff was completely overwhelmed with the situation and the swimmer ended up dying at the beach in front of kids after two nurses gave CPR. Then the management realized that they had absolutely no equipment to safe a life and retrofitted the pool with life savers-beach-no change other than two security guards in full uniform!! Useless. Disappointed that they had to loose a life. Property in itself is nice. Staff has some attitude and rarely smiles... not what we're used to on a Caribbean island.May this poor Indian tourist soul Rest In Heaven and his family find peace as they had to witness the whole thing, even their kids. This could have been avoided. Their business goes in as usual...
My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks in March, to celebrate my 60th Birthday.We had a waterfornt room,in a perfect location central to the bay. The rooms are very spacious, a lovely comfortable queen-size bed with the most amazing ocean view to wake up to each morning. Room service is excellent, clean towels every day and room always left spotless by the hard-working maids. The resort grounds and gardens are beautifully kept, and its great to get around the resort on the buggy's that they provide.We spent most days on the main beach which was lovely and mostly quiet, the floating rings were great to lay in & soak up the rays, (and the cocktails)!The food and service was first class, food quality was perfect, always well prepared and cooked, it all tasted amazing.We dined in all of the restaurants, Nicole's for my birthday evening, where the staff made a fuss of me, and all came round to sing Happy Birthday which was really nice. We both had the lobster, it was amazing and the biggest i have ever had! Buccaneers a la carte was very nice, a good menu and the food was again very good. Ate a couple of times at the beach bar and grill, although one night the service was slow, but it wasn't a problem for us.We went on 2 day trips booked with Nian at the Verandah, one on the Calypso Catamaran which was brilliant, snorkeling and visiting bird Island and on the way back lots of rum punch and dancing! We also went on the Pink Panther tour around the island it was very good and the two girl staff were really informative and so proud of their island, they even sang their national anthem for us!We would have no hesitation to recommend this resort , and having visited many Caribbean islands before, we felt that Antigua is now our favorite, mainly due to the wonderful friendly people both in the resort and locals that we met.
This resort has lovely grounds and accommodations but we felt some of the staff were quite surly and not very helpful especially the bar staff. There is only 1 bar so you have to wait around for service. Not a problem when on holiday but then everything seemed too much trouble for them! There are 2 small beaches which do get very busy. The large swimming pool is great for the kids but all the sun beds are taken up by their families. I would say this resort is not for Adults but great for a family holiday.The food is excellent in the buffet as it changes themes daily.There is nothing in the room refrigerators not even water as there are ice making machines around the resort. No soft drinks in the room. Transport around the resort are Golf buggies so you do have to wait a while if needed.
