"AYCM Resort-Perfect Winter Retreat!!!"
Having traveled all over the Caribbean, I have stayed in condo apartments, small boutique hotels in town, small/medium/large resorts on the beach, as well as international brand hotels. I can say without reservation that the Antigua Yacht Club Marina Resort is an exceptional property. When traveling one must be clear about the kind of experience you want to have in order to choose the right place to stay. The last time I came to Antigua I stayed at a somewhat secluded luxury resort that was away from town - very lovely, quiet and serene, which was the experience I wanted for that trip. For this trip, I was staying longer and wanted a different experience. I wanted to be in/near town, shops, restaurants, activities/nightlife, people, (residents and visitors alike). I wanted to have a lovely space in which to stay/call home for 2 weeks that allowed me to have time to myself when I wanted and allowed me to be out and about/engage with others/sight-see/eat out/shop when I wanted. For me, for this trip, the AYCM Resort was the perfect property in terms of location, the studio apartment-style rooms, the beauty of the property grounds and most importantly - the people! The staff of AYCM Resort (Devin, Jackie, Meechi, Kashif and Simone) are PHENOMENAL! They were supportive, engaging and willing to assist in any way they could. But, more importantly, they did all this with seemingly effortless grace, while making me feel so welcome, at home and more than just a resort guest.
