- What's Included
We have come to Tranquility again having been here two years ago. I had noticed some poor reviews before returning but found them to be unfounded. The accommodation is as good as it was the last time we stayed and perfect for our needs. There are six of us and we had two x two bed units, which was great. The staff here are brilliant!! They have looked after my elderly in laws by shuttling them around on the golf buggies.We would highly recommend this resort if you don't want to be bogged down to hotel food all the time.
We stayed here in November and found the apartment to be very spacious and well maintained . They were spotlessly clean. We noticed that some guests were upset that there was no wifi in the rooms but there is quite good wifi in the reception. Guests are allowed to use the pool at the jolly beach hotel and we enjoyed the aqua aerobics there. Guests are no longer allowed to use the hotels beach sun beds but sun beds are available for hire at reasonable rates . Water sports are also extra. For families the apartments still offer very good value for money and we will return again because of this and we love the beach and space around the resort. Being next to the jolly harbour is also a bonus as it has a large supermarket and some good restaurants.
Echoing the words of many others I found the people here sweet and cordial, but I found the facility woefully substandard. Our room was spacious but dark. No lamps, just overhead lighting and it was inadequate. Kitchen was poorly equipped and toaster didn't work. Water for showering, washing dishes etc. was lukewarm. Volume was fine. Furniture old and sits poorly. TV stations availability varied daily. Although that wasn't why I was there, it did seem strange. Beach was nice, but a little trashy. In addition, had to rent daily a chair and umbrella. Really? The resort does have wifi, but you have to leave your room and walk to the checkin area. It was fine for what I needed, if inconvenient. Maintenance people were responsive for the several things we needed. I found the main thing this has going for is the setting as it is beautiful and the sweet people working there. For my hard-earned money I don't plan a return to Antigua.
I just got back from Antigua 2 days ago. I must see after reading these reviews for months I was very nervous about what I would get once I got there. I must say I was surprised.. We stayed in room #214 in the Captain Building.. The air conditioner was on once we arrived. It was freezing in our room. Because of the reviews we read we refused to turn it off.. When I told you we froze the hold vacation in our room, we froze.. So clearly the A/C was working.. lol.. I stay at plenty of top of the line resorts but this I was looking for the nicest cheapest get away and that is what I got.. The beach is nice but the best beach out there is LONG BAY. Go if you can. Bring snacks and stuff cause they have a shallow end where you can feed the fish around the reef. They will come right up to your hand.. It felt like I was standing in the middle of a giant fish tank. FOR FREE.. Best part.. lol.. Also, visit Beach Limerz at sunset.. Beautiful Beautiful Pictures.. Just note if you are a stay around the resort type person this is not for you. Spend the money and stay somewhere more upscale. If you are like me and plan on exploring the island this is cool spot. One of the best supermarkets is in walking distance, bank, restaurants, Plenty of stuff. It is what you make..
Girls trip turned nightmare! Booked this hotel thru timeshare Getaway. Tried to call 2 weeks prior, no phone service. Get there and the outside of this place looked like an abondend asylum! Weeds were growing out of the flower boxes on all the levels. Come to find out, they have no electricity. Ok, so they did offer to place us in villas around the corner, but they were not nice! After 2 hrs. Of trying to get placed somewhere else, they did agree to pay Sat - Tues. at another resort. Asked to call on Wednesday to see if electricity was back on. We did, and they said it was back on, but we had already decided we were NOT going back! We paid for the next 3 nights where we were ourselves. It was a GREAT place! So we decided to SWING in on Thursday on way to beach and stopped a couple that was walking outside to ask if they were staying there and what they thought. The poor souls said, "yeah the electric came back on but our air conditioner doesn't work and they keep promising to fix it!" Thank God we decided to stay where we were. I don't know what the inside looks like but from reading the past reviews, I should have gone with my instinct and not booked this place!!!!!
