Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa
* Adults Only Resort
When you stay at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa it is like staying at two different resorts. Guests can choose to stay at the Mediterranean Village which offers all the sophistication and elegance of a luxury European hotel. Alternatively the Caribbean Grove has the charm and ambience of a tropical island. Whichever type of accommodation is chosen, guests at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa have the splendour of Dickenson Bay and all of the activities of the resort at their disposal.
The sensation of a quaint Caribbean Grove with lush, tropical gardens highlighted by brilliant bougainvillea combined with luxurious suites incorporating Mediterranean inspired elements both nestled against a powdery white-sand beach. Newly designed gardens and landscaping of the Mediterranean Village to the newly refurbished Red Lane® Spa add to the feeling of luxury and romance that permeates Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa.
The beach is the focus of much of the action at Sandals and there is a wide range of water sports on offer. These include canoeing, snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing, hydrobikes, sailing and paddle boarding. The beach is also safe for swimming and there is plenty of opportunity to find a quiet spot to relax and enjoy the Caribbean sun.
Back at the hotel there are numerous things to do. The resort has six pools and a further six whirlpools for more water-based fun and, when you tire of the water, you can try your hand at table tennis, billiards, croquet on the lawn, and board games. Tennis enthusiasts have the chance to get a few sets in on one of the tennis courts.
Folks who are in regular training needn’t miss a workout whilst on holiday as there is a well-equipped gym having a range of cardio machines and free weights. A more relaxing time can be experienced at the Red Lane® Spa. Here guests can have a massage or choose from a vast range of spa and beauty treatments. Please note that the spa treatments have an extra cost.

Drunken Duck Pub
Traditional English pub fare - An English pub with traditional pub cuisine such as Shepherd's Pie, Fish and Chips, Bangers and Mash, and more.
Japanese Teppanyaki dishes - With dim lighting, red accents, and Asian-inspired mahogany-framed windows modelled after the fascinating Shoji sliding screens of East Asia, the décor of Kimonos is ever so slightly exotic and mysterious, yet comforting at the same time. This is the perfect place to sample sizzling teppanyaki dishes, whipped up with flair, fanfare and laughter by an entertaining chef.
Ok Corral Restaurant
Tex-Mex Cuisine - With one of the best Red Bean Chilli Soups west of El Paso, and tasty steaks prepared in the spirit of the true south, you'll find every main dish is served with corn on the cob, baked potato or brown rice, coleslaw, and beans. Southwestern fajitas and some of the sweetest treats inspired by the southern territories of the United States also grace the palatable menu.

Bella Napoli Pizzeria
Made-to-order pizzas - Made-to-order pizza combinations range from the traditional margherita to the Calabrese and Hawaiian pizzas, all made with the same long-leavening, high-quality dough.

Café de Paris
Parisian-style patisserie - Well into the afternoon, delighting in chocolate cream puffs, crème brûlée tarts, cake, cookies and more, is enchanting. And, as the sun lowers in the sky and the air cools again, indulging in a warm crêpe with the topping of your choice is magical.
