Sandals Resorts Locations in Antigua

Sandals Resorts Locations in Antigua

We love Antigua for many reasons but most of all for its beautiful beaches. With 365 beaches to choose from, our favorites include Galley Bay Beach (surfing), Darkwood Beach (activities), Half Moon Bay (seclusion) and Dickenson Bay (considered the island's best and location of Sandals Grande Antigua)

The least expensive time to visit Antigua is from May to November which is the island's off-season. Although the chances of a hurricane are higher, they are rare and the weather remains comfortably in the 80s. The chances of rain are lower between the months of December and April, but rates are more expensive and crowds are abundant.

Sandals offers one location in Antigua, Sandals Grande Antigua. Conveniently located just 15 minutes away from the airport it resides on Dickenson Bay which to us, is the most beautiful beach in the country. This resort has received the award for “World’s Most Romantic Resort” many times over and is a world-class adults-only, all-inclusive. It caters to couples looking for a romantic getaway and guests can choose between a cottage in the original beachfront Caribbean Grove or a suite at the poolside Mediterranean Village.

Whichever accommodation you select, you’ll find spacious rooms with mahogany four-poster king-sized beds and flat-screen TVs. On resort dining features seven bars and eleven restaurants, serving everything from pizza at Bella Naploli to Tex-Mex at OK Corral to sushi at Kimonos.

For those interested in spa treatments, Sandals' Red Lane Spa offers exceptional massages and body scrubs. If you’re wanting to be active, as with all Sandals resorts you have access to a variety of land and water sports. Best of all - it's all included!
