10/10 Exceptional

What a wonderful experience! I absolutely love Antigua. The people here make the island so special and amazing. They’re such hard workers and really aim to try to please and help you. My family and i (husband, toddler and baby) went with the alol inclusive plan. The lunches at the hotel are incredible. You can order and eat at the beach which is what we did with two little kids. service on the beach was good. There were a couple days we had to track someone down to help with fixing the seats but otherwise everything went smoothly. The dinners at the hotel were okay. East was good if you were in the mood for Asian, the Italian restaurant is only open 2x a week and when we did go it was alright. The pizza is amazing tho. The dough was incredible. Because we had kids we couldn’t go to the adults only restaurant, and Indigo was really great. However if you’re looking for a change of scenery after being there a week and having breakfast in indigo, having dinner there becomes redundant. I cannot stress how amazing the Service is at the hotel! The only complaint, tho minor, is the room is a bit dated including the bathroom but very well kept. The beach. Oh the gorgeous beach!!! Perfect for toddlers and baby’s.

Set in a beautiful bay, lovely staff. Excellent rooms, but the shower has a smooth tiled floor and is extremely slippy. Has to put a towel on the floor of the shower to be safe.
