Sandals Grande Antigua

When I posted the pictures of our resort on here a few weeks ago, I was a little skeptic because I figured there was absolutely no way that the resort was going to be as gorgeous as the pictures I found online. Now, looking at them again, they are 100% accurate. We had a WONDERFUL time. The only thing that I didn't like about the week were the travel days. They were very very long. But, Antigua made it all worth it. I feel like I have become a Sandals spokesperson because I have been talking up their resorts so much since we got home. But seriously, everyone should go at some point. There is something very unique about being at a place where everyone is in love. It's a very wonderful environment. I was also extremely impressed by the cleanliness of the place and the friendliness of the staff.

This was the hut that we stayed in. Sandals Grande Antigua has an older and a newer side to the resort. We stayed in the older side. The newer side is more like a hotel, whereas the older side is more spaced out and a little more private.
We were completely shocked the first day when we were led to our room. We found out that we had been upgraded to a room with a private plunge pool! There are only 8 of these at the resort, so we felt extremely special. We had our own fenced in back yard with a pool, a little table, two lounge chairs and a beautiful little garden. Doesn't get much better than that!!
Here is the pool where we spent most of our afternoons. You can see the resort-style rooms in the background.
We spent every morning at the beach. It was gorgeous!
I sure do miss that place. We made some great memories and could not have asked for a better honeymoon. I cannot wait to return someday.
