Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa

Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Sandals is the epitome of a couples-only Caribbean mega-resort. With 11 restaurants, 373 luxurious rooms, and six pools, it's expansive, if not a bit overwhelming. You could easily get lost in the 27 acres of meticulously groomed gardens and along the pathways winding between buildings. The Sandals brand is evident at every turn, and the experience can feel generic, pre-packaged, and lacking in authenticity. However, this popular upscale all-inclusive with elegant rooms is definitely dedicated to creating memorable, romantic getaways. (Just be prepared to share yours with a few hundred other couples.)
Carlisle Bay

Carlisle Bay Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Carlisle Bay offers understated luxury on Antigua's southern coast. The resort has dedicated sections for both families and couples, and successfully appeals to both with its lovely white-sand beach, calm ocean, free non-motorized water sports, and impressive kids' club. The 82 rooms are modern and sophisticated if not very distinctly Caribbean, and the food is both expensive and unimpressive. But the extensive features and services (many of which are free) still make this one of the island's top luxury options.
Nonsuch Bay Resort

Nonsuch Bay Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Nonsuch Bay is an upscale resort on a secluded corner of the island that features 62 contemporary apartment-style rooms with full kitchens. There are three pools, a pleasant beach, and a sailing club, but no fitness center or spa. Though the one restaurant is excellent, dining options are very limited due to the resort's remote location. With fewer activity options than at some bigger family resorts like Verandah, peace and relaxation are the order of the day at Nonsuch.
Blue Waters Antigua

Blue Waters Antigua Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This upscale, family-friendly resort with a well-polished exterior maintains a relaxed, Caribbean vibe and offers great ocean views from all parts of the property. The highlights are the lush, tropical gardens, nine tranquil pools, and a range of suite or villa options. But don't expect too much variety at the restaurants or to take long walks in the sand -- the beaches are small, but lounge chairs are plentiful.
Galley Bay Resort & Spa

Galley Bay Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The relaxed, tranquil environment of this adults-only boutique resort is a major part of its appeal. This isn't Antigua's fanciest property, but it doesn't need to be: Simple Caribbean style (think: thatched roofs, stone, and rattan), a truly gorgeous beach, and all-inclusive food that's better than average for the island make for a winning combo. Water sports are also included in the rate, but the ocean here can get a bit rough so guests shouldn't count on being able to swim in it every day.
Grand Pineapple Beach Antigua

Grand Pineapple Beach Antigua Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This 180-room, mid-range all-inclusive is the more affordable and slightly family-friendlier than sister property Sandals Grande Antigua. The colorful Grand Pineapple includes lots of activities (including games and water sports), but the nice white-sand beach and great lagoon pool can get crowded. Rooms have simple Caribbean style, with light blue walls and wicker furniture, but many are old and need updating. The shack-style Outhouse restaurant on the bluff is a highlight, as are the daily turtle feedings. Guests enjoy the casual, unpretentious vibe at this laid-back value option.
Verandah Resort & Spa

Verandah Resort & Spa Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Verandah is a large upper-middle-range all-inclusive with 200 suite-style rooms and a variety of activities for kids, making it one of the island's best resorts for families. The colorful, contemporary resort features four restaurants, two small beaches, three pools, a lovely spa, and a mini-golf course. The vibe is casual and laid-back, though while it offers many amenities, Verandah can feel generic and doesn't exhibit any distinct personality or charm.
Cocobay Resort

Cocobay Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This charming all-inclusive boutique resort, situated on a bluff overlooking the sea, features 57 separate cottage-style rooms painted in Caribbean pinks and blues. The rooms have a rustic style featuring exposed wood beams, and some have private plunge pools. It is a posh adults-only property catering to couples, wedding parties, and honeymooners -- but it offers a much more intimate atmosphere than massive couples-only resorts like Sandals.
St. James's Club

St. James's Club Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This large, upper-middle-range all-inclusive resort has been an established name on Antigua for many years, but it remains fresh, and the casual tropical decor in rooms is (mostly) updated. The 251-room property offers six pools, five restaurants, a lovely spa and two beaches -- though on the Atlantic side the beach catches a lot of wind. The atmosphere is relaxed but polished, and while activities are available, guests seem to come for the peace and serenity provided by the resort's quiet location.
Jolly Beach Resort & Spa

Jolly Beach Resort & Spa Rating: 2.5 Pearls

Jolly Beach Resort is a large 464-room family-friendly (and budget-friendly) all-inclusive resort on an excellent mile-long white sand beach. It's self-described as an "affordable" option for Antigua, and that aspect is evident in the older buildings, fading paint, and worn decor. Though it's a little rough around the edges, considering the lovely beach and large pool area, Jolly Beach provides a decent value -- as long as you don’t mind a few shortcomings, and don’t plan on spending too much time in the drab rooms.
