"The perfect blend of relaxation and fun"

Antigua Review

A Sandals Resorts expert, Kristianne Phillips, has visited many of the Resorts in the collection and firmly believes Sandals Grande Antigua is her favourite, let’s find out why…

WHAT’S YOUR PERSONAL FAVOURITE RESORT AND WHY?

I absolutely loved Sandals Grande Antigua, It was the perfect blend of relaxation and fun. It was hard to be tempted away from the pool bar, but the stunning views from the beach took our breath away. It was so romantic!

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE AT A SANDALS RESORT?

I'm not ashamed to say that most days revolved around food, drink and soaking up the sun. We spent each day on the beach with waiters bringing us every known cocktail under the sun, deciding which of many restaurants we would dine in that day and the odd trip to the pizzeria or Café de Paris chucked in. We like to take it easy and relax and Sandals made doing so effortless. Each day was really relaxed with the odd snorkelling trip in the afternoon or a cheeky visit to the pool bar.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE RESTAURANT AND WHY?

Eleanor’s was definitely our favourite restaurant, we had dinner there twice and would have gone back more if we had the time. For me nothing beats Caribbean cuisine and Eleanor’s luxury twists on Caribbean favourites were to die for.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE COCKTAIL AND WHY?

There are so many! If I have to choose my go to cocktail then it has to be a Miami Vice. Half Pina Colada, half Strawberry Daiquiri with loads of rum on top. What's not to love?

WHAT RESORT IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?

Visiting with the world famous swimming pigs is definitely top of my bucket list so this is easy... It has to be Sandals Emerald Bay. It looks idyllic.
