Sandals Grande Antigua Review: Insights from our Sandals Travel Experts
A smooth 20-minute drive from the Antigua airport (ANU), the resort’s strategic setting amongst Antigua’s premier soft-sand beach, Dickenson Bay, is only part of its appeal. Inside the award-winning Sandals Grande Antigua all inclusive resort, refined European luxury meets laidback island life as two distinct worlds effortlessly come alive.
The sophisticated Mediterranean Oceanview Village brings guests a six-star all-suite piazza to explore, boasting modern plunge pool villas centered around the Eastern Caribbean’s largest pool spanning 15,000 square feet. At the shore, exotic Rondoval suites, majestic coconut palms, and wandering tropical vines capture the island’s natural flair in the Caribbean Beachfront Village.
