This luxurious all-inclusive resort is situated on a beautiful stretch of white sandy beach in Antigua's Dickenson Bay. Combining Caribbean and Mediterranean styles, Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa features 11 restaurants, six freshwater pools and the generous range of activities that Sandals resorts are known for.
Sat between Antigua’s longest sandy beach and 27 acres of lush tropical grounds and gardens, the hotel’s location is impressive. If you’re looking to explore more of the island, visit the uninhabited Prickly Pear Island, and Antigua’s capital city and fort, Saint John’s and Fort James, which are within five miles of the hotel. The popular but peaceful Runaway Beach is two miles away and for keen golfers, the Cedar Valley Golf Course is three miles away. V. C Bird International Airport is under six miles from the hotel.
Accommodation is split into two villages – the Caribbean Beachfront Village, located by the sea amidst towering palms, and the Mediterranean Oceanview Village, inspired by the glamour of Nice, St Tropez and Italy. Within both villages, you’ll find a number of Love Nest Butler Suites®, offering butler assistance, 24-hour room service and views of the beach, ocean, pool or gardens – some also have private pools and beachfront locations. In addition to the Butler Suites, Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa also offers Club Level and Luxury Level rooms, some of which boast views over the Caribbean Sea

Mario’s serves breakfast and dinner, offering a selection of Northern Italian recipes inspired by the grandfather of the restaurant’s first Italian chef. Calypso serves flavourful Caribbean cuisine. Café de Paris offers a French-inspired spread for breakfast, as well as patisserie items until the evening. Seafood is served for lunch and dinner at Barefoot by the Sea – located on the sand, you are welcome to arrive without footwear. In the afternoon, Courtyard Bistro serves salads, hot dogs, and burgers and Bella Napoli provides made to order pizzas. Open for dinner and into the small hours for drinks, Drunken Duck is an English pub-inspired venue, with fish and chips, shepherd’s pie and bangers and mash among the items on the menu, accompanied by British drinks such as Guinness and Newcastle Brown Ale. Experience East Asian dishes at dinnertime, including gyoza and teriyaki beef at Kimonos, and sushi and sashimi dishes incorporating crab, octopus and unagi sauce at Orange Blossom (both closed on Tuesdays). Or enjoy Tex-Mex cuisine and premium steak cuts, with a beach view, at OK Corral.
