Curtain Bluff – from the moment you arrive at Curtain Bluff you just know it’s going to be special! A small intimate resort with only 72 suites that spread over a large area, meaning space is key. There are large rooms with ocean views and the further up the bluff you stay the more panoramic the view! With two beaches you will always find a quiet spot, one beach has sounds of crashing waves and a breeze; the other side is calm and perfect for water sports. Food is superb with two restaurants to choose from. I only had a short stay but the staff make you feel like you have been going for years. Owned by the same family for over 50 years with staff that have been there for over 20 years. I can see why people return again and again.
Blue Waters – a firm favourite, I was very keen to see what makes it so popular. From the moment we arrived the staff were so welcoming and could not do enough for us. The beautiful cove beach has a great selection of water-sports, perfect if you like to be active. Rooms vary in size and décor but all a good standard, location is key. The cove suites are a popular choice and good for families. The space is fantastic and there is an additional pool. The Spa has the most beautiful backdrop perfect for some 'me' time!
Galley Bay – rustic charm in the Caribbean and a perfect adults only choice. The beach is lovely, a long sweeping area perfect for those romantic walks. What really impressed me was the style of the rooms, I loved the location of the beachfront options, but equally the Gauguin cottages are a perfect romantic spot. The Spa is very special with two treatment areas in the trees! It’s the place to relax, unwind and enjoy the beautiful Caribbean way of life.
Sandals Antigua – I have been to several Sandals resorts and this really impressed me. Each resort offers the standard Sandals inclusions: quality wines and food including a number of restaurants and an abundance of water sports and facilities. But Sandals Antigua has to be my favourite. Set on one of the best beaches in Antigua with white powder sands and clear blue seas. Great accommodation options from larger suites in the Med village with a lively atmosphere around the pool, to the more Caribbean flair cottages on the other side with smaller pools where you can escape. Restaurants are excellent and we loved the varied choice. Definitely on my recommend list!
