Here are some comments
we received recently from visitors to Antigua and Barbuda:
visited the island last week, only had one day, but it was long
enough to know we definitely want to come back. Beautiful Island.
I spent the summer in Antigua, at
the Salvation Army Sunshine Home for Girls. I had a magnificent summer, and can't wait to visit the
beautiful island of Antigua again someday. I've been to quite a few Caribbean
islands, and I have to say that Antigua is the most beautiful I've seen.
We got married on the 24th January
2000 at the Royal Antiguan Hotel. It was absolutely marvelous
and we would recommend anyone getting married there. They really
put themselves out to make a memorable day. I hope to return
for a anniversary holiday with friends whom we met there.
Thank you again for a lovely holiday and wedding.
Deidre and Ken Howell
went to Antigua during the summer. I travelled with my sister
and stayed with friends that lived there. The locals were very
friendly and the beaches were amazing. I thought the Jolly Roger
boat trip was great fun and you can drink as much as you like
and the food was gorgeous. The only problem was that when you
went souvenir hunting a lot of traders tried to force you into
buying off them. But that is the same everywhere you go. I would
advise anybody, who would ask me, to go to Antigua as it is an
experience of a life-time.
Just got back from spending a week
at the Royal Antiguan. It was the most relaxing holiday I have
had in a long time. The hotel, food, beach and people were wonderful.
Best vacation ever.
Just visited Antigua,Nelson Harbour,
Falmouth Harbour, the week Feb.22-27th.. This place is
a DREAM!! The locals are friendly and fun. Going back next year
the same time.
returned from a wonderful week at the Royal Antiguan - really
enjoyed the facility. The staff was helpful - the grounds were
beautiful and the view from the beach was breathtaking - enjoyed
watching many weddings - the only suggestion I have for the Royal
Antiguan is to invest in a better roll-a-way and do Karaoke more.
The meals were great and the people on the beach were fun - look
up Tony and take a catamaran ride on the KoKoMoCat- great time
was had by our group - Id do it again and I have visited
many Caribbean islands and found this to be one that I would
visit again. Thanks for a perfect vacation - my hats off to the
Royal Antiguan Staff.
Just returned from Sandals, Antigua.
We had an absolutely wonderful time. The island is spectacular.
We are very glad that we picked Sandals. The beach was beautiful
and the grounds were exquisite. We enjoyed the food and there
was plenty to do (if you wanted to) or you could just spend the
day relaxing on the beach or just walking around the grounds
admiring the scenery. A definite must see!
It was great!!! We went to Club
Antigua, and stayed in Jolly Harbour. There is loads to do, and
i would recommend it to anyone. We thought it was so good we
booked the exactly same holiday the day we got back in England. We
went for Christmas and it was really hot and the food was wonderful.
My husband and I have been to Antigua
several times. We loved the island and have always had
a great time. Our favorite beach for sunset time is Johnsons
point. (WestSide) Everything about that area is breath taking. Also,
dinner at Albertos on the other side of the island. Excellent
place, Alberto is wonderful as well. Its a nice drive through
fig tree road from one side to the other.
I agree with the other people about Shirley
Heights, shouldnt be missed, the views
are terrific. We happen to be up there for a eclipse of the
moon on our second trip. It was great. Although the
food we felt wasnt very good and we would only recommend
having drinks then going somewhere else for dinner.
For lunch a nice drive and good food.
Check out Harmony
Hall. The people are nice, you can enjoy lunch and
do a little shopping plus check out the island a little. Renting
a car is not a problem it is a little hard driving on the opposite
side of the road and trying to miss the pot holes. But we recommend
getting a car if you want to check out the island.
Antigua is a great island plenty to
do or not to do. If anyone has questions you can
email me. I will be happy to share what I know about the island.
Everyone deserves to have aexcellent trip. We always do. Crossroads.Tiffany@wspan.com
