Great resort with beautiful location

Posted May 17, 2015
A satisfying experience. Perfect location with windward and leeward beaches. Friendly staff and good housekeeping made our stay very pleasant. The food was average, but not exceptional.

Hotel with beachfront room, wake up to the waves

Posted May 16, 2015
Pros: Quiet location, with beachfront room.
Cons: Coco's food is poor. Would love additional places to eat without dressing up.
Location: They have water activities and 2 beaches. However, the best beach is off site and not affiliated.
Booked beachfront room. It was wonderful to walk out from room and straight out onto the beach. The room was nice sized and comfortable. Unfortunately, the beach was having problems with seagrass being brought in from the ocean waves. (Mother nature dragging it in). The staff worked very hard to remove the seagrass and keep up the beach. We got an extra benefit of a meal at the nice restaurant (Piccolo Mondo) due to the seagrass. Since it was not in their control, I thought that was especially nice. Only negative was CoCo's restaurant. If you go there, just get a burger. Anything else is pretty disappointing.

Very nice once over initial disappointment

Posted May 13, 2015
Pros: Food, service, beautiful and well maintained grounds.
Cons: Roads to hotel were bad.
Location: Did not leave the resort but they had sailing, snorkeling, diving, rental cars, and more.
Ride from Airport to Hotel was brutal, roads are in very bad shape and driver drove like a maniac. Once there and in our rooms we noticed bad smell and from our ocean front room we noticed the reason. 200' of seaweed stretching from the shore out into the water all along the entire beach waterfront. They had many men and equipment hauling it away by the tons for the whole week only to have more and more blow in. Nature was at fault, not the hotel but still disappointing. The bay side beach was great, no seaweed. Restaurants all great food and service excellent. Had the seaweed not happened it would have been perfect (except for the ride in). I did think the bathroom floor needed a good scrubbing but the rest of the room was nice. No tub in our room, wife was disappointed with that. The Island it self is not very attractive, mostly bare but the hotel area was beautiful with palms and flowers everywhere. I would recommend it but might have opted for bay side if I had known about the seaweed.

Great room, amenities, variety of restaurants, good food quality and staff pretty much really were interested in ensuring we were happy buy some staff need refresher training.

Lovely Resort! Lovely staff!

Posted Apr 2, 2015
Pros: Loved the staff. The Royal Suite room was wonderful! Most of the food was good too.
Cons: The food could stand a little improvement but overall it was good. We always found something we liked.
Location: The location was great! We liked the fact that there was a bay side and an ocean side to this resort. Lots of activities on the resort.
Our first Caribbean trip. Enjoyed every minute of it. The Royal Suites were roomy, comfortable and nicely decorated. The staff was so friendly. The food was mostly great, Especially the breakfast buffet.

Pros: Kidz Club is the best. Most restaurants are okay. Only one wasn't that great but ok for grabbing something when coming straight from the beach.
Very pleasant experience. Definitely worth the value that I received from Expedia savings. Extremely helpful staff. a small problem with ants in the room and water leaking from the air conditioner every morning when the sprinklers would push water through the vents, but not that big a deal.

Great relaxing vacation !!

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: Multiple beach and pool options. Great variety of food and beverages. Beachfront rooms.
Cons: Bathrooms are a bit dated, but still comfortable. Some seaweed collects on beach daily but removed in timely fashion by staff.
Location: Great location with proximity to English Harbor, Shirley Heights, and natural attractions on South/ East of island (beaches, Devil's Bridge, etc).
Just returned from a week at the St. James Club that we thoroughly enjoyed. If you are looking for serious R & R... this is the place offering multiple beach and pool venues in a beautiful location. Antigua is a nice change of pace from the more crowded islands such as Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, etc.... where you can still find a bit of the "old" Carribbean. The beaches are beautiful (and there are many!). Getting off the beaten path is easy to do.. and highly recommended. The resort is large, but definitely doesn't feel like a "mega resort" with the way it is laid out across the peninsula --- this is one reason that attracted us. Snorkeling cruise to Green Island was a blast -- leaves from resort dock daily.

Nice hotel excellent beach choices

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Overall very pleasant experience. Staff is very professional and accommodating. Oceanfront rooms are large and comfortable. Bathroom tiling is a bit worn & appears dirty in spots. Food was good in all of the restaurants.

Very nice resort with great location

Posted Mar 17, 2015
The hotel has large clean rooms and the quality of the food is very good. The resort location provides you with two separate beaches, an ocean side and a harbor side. ...the ocean side gives you a breezier location with waves and beauty and the harbor side is quieter and calmer. ...provides a great opportunity to bounce back and forth depending on mood and temperature. We went in early March and the weather was great. We stayed ocean side. ...turned off the a/c and let the breeze handle things - it was great.

A relaxing resort with wonderful views.

Posted Mar 8, 2015
Pros: Overall great.
Cons: More activities like bingo or chess, a game room of some sort.
Location: Never left the resort I was comfortable with necessities.
I was pleased overall however one evening when I arranged a shuttle ride back from there Picolo Mondo Restaurant located up the hill to transport me back to my Royal Suite, it never arrived and I had to walk back, I'm an above the knee amputee so I was not pleased.
