The hotel is set in lovely grounds.Posted Sep 22, 2015
Pros: The rooms were well equipped and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Cons: The noise level from nearby the Sandals Resort needs to be managed better.
Location: Excellent location, only yards from the beach. There are two bars/restaurants just a couple of minutes walk from the complex.
The hotel is close to the beach and has a good size pool and plenty of shade in the beautiful gardens. It could be very peaceful and a lovely place to relax and unwind if it wasn't for the constant noise and incessant music coming from the nearby Sandals resort which started around 11.30 am and went on until late evening, this really spoils what would otherwise be an idyllic setting.

Test Match SpecialPosted Apr 27, 2015
Pros: Uncomplicated; and guests able to choose their own times coming and going
Cons: More shade in areas open to the sun...eg parasol/tables and the like
Location: Located on Dickenson Bay. Beach faces the evening sun (good)
Two cricket fan, we stayed here prior to, during and after the record breaking (J Anderson) 2015 Test Match West Indies v England. within 8 hours of arriving we dined at the beach restaurant 50 yards/metres from our room and met three cricketing LEGENDS.. The beach and its facilities were a cricket ball's throw away and were very good as was the pool although both were a bit short of "shade" in the 30 degree plus heat of the day. The resort does not have its own dining facility, but at either end of its beach there was a separately run bar/restaurant. We were able to leave the resort by using the adequate taxi service. The costs thoughout were generally "reasonable" although one had to be somewhat selective when dining (nearby) as certain items looked a .bit expensive. General rating 4 out of 5 and better than advertised

Antigua stayPosted Apr 21, 2015
Pros: see above
Cons: replace the older furnishings and interior decorations; not a big fan of the old clunky heavyweight key rings that you have to carry around
Location: Dickensen bay offers island cruises etc... just walk down the beach
let's just say that driving around Antigua is not the easiest - lousy signage + potholes everywhere make for an interesting experience if you rent your own car. oh...and remember you're driving on the left too. anyway..once we finally found Antigua Village we were quite pleasantly surprised. garden type settings for most of the units with a few opening out onto Dickenson Bay (one of the longest and best beaches on the island). the rooms were spacious and clean (albeit dated) and the bathroom was serviceable. ours had small kitchenette facility (not used) + fridge (for wadadlis and wine) and patio area with wash basin to get the sand off your feet. very calm and peaceful resort. although there is a huge Sandals resort right next door, it really was no bother. AV have their own beachfront restaurant (Ana's) which is dexcent and share another bar/restaurant (Coconut grove) with Siborny beach on the other side. good rum punchs at both! so..really no problems at all. not the ritz but not motel 6 either. for the money paid I would say it was a good deal.

Beautiful gardens and close to beachPosted Apr 9, 2015
Pros: The room, the gardens with its fruit trees and being close to the beach.
Cons: The front entrance
Location: Numerous hotel were nearby..also close access to other beaches and supermarkets.
My stay was very pleasant. I enjoyed the serenity of the gardens and the sound of the waves in my hotel room. I would recommend this to families and even couples. My husband especially enjoyed the kitchen with its amenities.

Clean and next to beautiful beachPosted Jan 21, 2015
Pros: stayed here twice now and have not been disappointed. the apartments vary as they are privately owned but always clean. right next to beach.
Cons: The shop at Antigua Village could be better stocked.
Location: Ideal location for couples. not much there for children apart from the beach and pool.
I stayed in ground floor studio with my husband. Antigua Restaurants nearby - next door Coconut Grove on the beach which is good but not as good as previous year, think they may have changed the chef. For casual food i.e. burgers/ pizza/ chilli/ spag bol/ chops. you have Putters that is across the road. The restaurant in the Casino & the Casino is unfortunately closed, but is supposed to be opening again soon. La Bussola italian is just 15 minutes walk or 5 minute taxi. Carmichaels have beautiful views for the sunset and has a lovely cocktail bar and restaurant. On the Beach there is Tonys for a truly carribbean lunch. St Johns town is just a 10 min cab ride. There is a large supermarket First Choice 5min cab ride definitely worth it for getting your supplies in. The only thing I didn't like was the constant daytime microphone voice coming from Sandals for the daytime activities. This spoilt the quiet of sitting round the pool or in the grounds you couldn't hear it on the beach. I have stayed at Sandals and it annoyed me then. - 'expensive holiday camp'

December leisurely stay. A charmless okay place.Posted Jan 2, 2015 on Hotels
Staff lack how to be friendly apart from one nice, local Caribbean elderly porter. One guy who showed us our room didn't even offer to assist with suitcases hence no tip! You can forget about any charm, grace or helpfulness from the reception team. They don't know what that is, it was us doing the polite greeting, thanking them etc rather! One wonders why they are working in the hospitality field on front desk!! You have to be proactive with your questions as their service is unremarkable and that is putting it lightly. The rooms are all in one with old style kitchenette with care home style, aged 1980s decor. Ours was clean and the pro was being on Dickenson Bay. The wifi in room was very weak and comes and goes around the complex. The price for the stay of 2 nights does not represent value. The hotel is next to Sandals, you can see the difference when you walk by there although that would be for a different budget altogether.
