Sandals Grande Antigua

Known as "the honeymoon capital of the world", Sandals Antigua features a romantic atmosphere along with a theme of relaxation. Due to the resort's popularity, Sandals has doubled the size of the resort by adding the new all-suite Mediterranean Village directly alongside its classic traditional Caribbean Grove section. Along with large pools, the resort's beach which overlooks Dickenson Bay is considered one of the finest within the Sandals brand. The resort's dining and service is also among the best you will find. Featured accommodations include the romantic rondoval villas, the ocean villa one bedroom suites, and the luxury penthouse suites of the Mediterranean Village. Adding another dimension to the resort is a casino located directly next door along with a private entrance way directly connected to the resort grounds.
