Great Honeymoon, but Dated Facility
Posted Dec 29, 2016
My husband and I were so excited to honeymoon at Sandals in Antigua as we wanted to go to an island that was new for both of us and I read lots of reviews and believed this 4.5/5 star all-inclusive would be perfect for us.
When we arrived we were disappointed at how OLD and DATED the resort looked. After staying at another 4.5/5 star resort in the Dominican Republic a year prior…I was shocked that this resort was so highly rated as it appeared to be a 3/5 at best. When we arrived to our room I was further in shock that it looked NOTHING like the pictures online. it was a small, old raggedy cabin that I refused to sleep in…the front desk upgraded us to the honeymoon suite which was better, but still far from luxurious as I expected.
CONS: resort needs LOTS of updates to the entire facility (the beach and pool were the only areas that were 4.5/5 star to us), food was good but they did not serve as much seafood (shrimp and lobster) as we're used to at all-inclusives, no beach and pool drink service unless you have a butler
PROS: beautiful beach and pool, nice staff for the most part, enjoyed the food overall especially the Hibachi, Eleanor's and the beach restarutant (only place to get lobster tails at resort), the 360 island tour was great (we got ours from the guys on the beach and it was fantastic), and great entertainment crew
Overall: we had a great honeymoon and relaxed, we wouldn't stay here again as we like to stay at much more updated/new resorts
