Weather

The weather was wonderful with the sun and a light breeze making it very comfortable.

When it did rain it was only very brief showers that made the air smell even better.

Holiday

Relaxing and fun with no stress and wonderful people!

The food was great and the beach even better.

The hotel staff went out of their way to make it a perfect vacation and we are headed back with the kids this time.

Places Recommended

Bird Island was great fun and so was the island taxi tour.

Shellys Point had great views too.

Nelsons Harbour was a nice short trip and you get to see a lot.

Weather was brilliant most of the time. Rained heavily for two days due to Tropical Storm Isaac passing through, but there were no days without sun for at least part of the time. Very hot - temperatures exceeded 85 degrees on most days.

Holiday

First visit to Antigua and it wont be my last! Lovely hotel (Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts) with the friendliest and most helpful staff I have ever met. Everyone made us feel special. Food at the hotel was brilliant - if you go all inclusive book the gym when you get home: you'll need it!
Ask Errol the bar man to mix you a cocktail - but make sure someone can get you back to your room first - they're strong! And Orlan - you cook the best eggs - my son says so!

Places Recommended

Bettys Hope - very thought provoking, Shirley Heights on Sunday is a must to see steel pan and reggae bands. Nelsons Dockyard - interesting. If you need a taxi at Halcyon Cove ask for Marcus at Star Taxis - he's one of the best taxi drivers on the island!

Weather

Mixed. Christmas Eve very cloudy but warm. Christmas Day fabulous. Boxing Day cloudy. 30th January disaster - very heavy rain most of the day.

Holiday

Great Pineapple have to say is not brilliant for service but brilliant for relaxing. We had rooms 920 and 921 - huge rooms with fabulous ocean and pool views. Meticulously clean. One of the best parts of the holiday was watching my husband who works harder than any other man I know actually "doing nothing" and loving every minute of it.

Staff hillarious at times, especially the "Dancing Barman" who had a grin splitting his face ear to ear all the time, and very friendly all the time. Day pass to Sandals - empathised with earlier Tripadvisor reviewer who said "it was a relief to get back to GP". Far too big, far too noisy, far too many Americans who could not relax at all, and dreadful beach - which is why the took over GP beach earlier in the year for their own beach shots as GP's beach is 2nd most beautiful on the island.

Places Recommended

Shirley Heights. Ignore all the depressing souls who say "ignore it - nothing more than a tourist trap with scandalously overpriced drinks and nothing other than burgers to eat". Well, the 2nd part may be true but heh, you are on holiday and what isn't there to enjoy when you are hearing fabulous steel band playing while you are holding a drink in your hand and looking over fabulous views of English and Falmouth harbours.

Nelsons Dockyard was marvellous. Good museum with all the fascinating history it covers. Fabulous restaurant and bar overlooking the water serving the best pina coladas I have ever tasted. Sunsail were also based there which gave my husband the perfect chance to personally look at the 8-10 berth catamarans he is determined to talk me into buying......

St Johns fun with 2 HUGE cruisers tied up at the time we visited.

Weather

Very hot and sunny with occasional cloudy patches.
The first day we arrived it was very cloudy and had apparently been so for several days.
Other than the first few days we had plenty of lovely, hot sunshine with occasional clouds and no rain.

Holiday

Our third visit to Sunsail Antigua; we love the weather, the place and the people.
Everything is very easy - 10 min transfer from airport, plenty of sailing opportunities and lots of other things to do for nonsailors at Sunsail.
Havent explored the wider island much but St Johns is fairly dull and don't waste time visiting Shirley Heights - a dull tourist rip off.
The people are absolutely delightful in the main and their relaxed attitude to life is infectious.
Great for families with children, or any age in fact.

Often a chance of 'liquid sunshine' :-) Nevermind that's not a bad thing - helps to cool down the red bits!

Holiday

Wonderful food, great people, friendly and welcoming. We stay at the St James's Club villas - highly recommended!

Places Recommended

Always hire a car and find your own way around the island - worried about getting lost? - no worries someone will always give directions! Try the zip wire up on top of Fig Tree Drive - breathtaking! If you dare!!!!
Happy holidays? Of course!

Weather

It was a bit stormy for 5 days but didn't detract from a great time and it allowed time for the mild sunburn to settle. Wnet sailing with friend and it blew up to a storm but what fun expecially when you have a real professional crew.

Holiday

We stayed at the (Virgin) Beach Club St James and it was fantastic. This is the sixth time we have stayed there and we will go back again next year. The food is excellent and the staff fantastic. Sad to say that some staff have been layed off as Antigua is way down on visitors this year. We can only hope it picks up and people like Mr James who was the Cocos Restaurant Manager will be back.

Places Recommended

Nelons Dockyard is very interesting but don't get the idea that it's a bit like Portsmouth Dockyard, it's not. For those with an interest in Naval Customs then go along to 'Life Bar' at 6.00 pm. and you may get to see the Royal Naval Tot Club of Antigua and Barbuda celebrate with their daily 'tot' of rum. Great fun We went with a dozen friend to 'Home Restaurant' and we highly recommend it.

Weather was excellent although there was a tropical storm one night on our second week. By lunchtime the army of gardners had it all cleared away and you would never know anything was amiss.
The sun was out from first thing in thr morning and the temps didnt go below 80's

Holiday

Thoroughly enjoyed holiday. The Grand Pineapple Resort is a goof place to stay, but its best to upgrade from the standard room to a garden room. The place was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. You feel that you had a good rest. The resturants were good but could have had a better variety of food some days. There was always something going on of a night as well. The beach is very good.

Places Recommended

A must is a visit to Stingray City where you are taken by boat to swim with the stingrays. St Johns for shopping is not too bad but Nelsons Dockyard is very good. Best to visit Shirley Heights on a Sunday night but try and make you own arrangements by taxi, it is much cheaper but worth a visit.
