TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
meh - lovely staff, pretty grounds, but underwhelming resort - a 3.5 at best.

Not sure where all these rave reviews come from. We were just there (family of four - Feb 11-18) and found it to be entirely unexceptional. If you are looking for a resort where the rooms are clean and functional (but tired and unremarkable), where there is no real stretch of beach to stroll (the beach area is private but man-made, small and confined, and with no access to independent water sports [beaches on Caribbean side are far superior in this regard]), the pool area is small, and there is absolutely no drink or food service at the beach, pool, or otherwise, this might be the place for you. I will say that the staff is incredibly pleasant and accommodating and the grounds are beautifully maintained. The food is decent but options are very limited (basically two choices - restaurant or buffet), the buffet items are universally over-salted and the presentation is institutional. There are kids activities and a putt-putt golf course but its far away from the main resort area and our kids had little interest in venturing to them and you might not be comfortable allowing them to go on their own. We were very surprised and disappointed by the fact that there is no beach or pool-side service. If you want a drink or a snack, you must venture to the bar or restaurant - which is no small effort (40+ steps up and a hill from the main beach). Overall, the resort is fine and the staff is wonderful but don't be mislead by the 4-star rating. This is NOT a 4-star resort. We left the resort more than half the days on excursions and to visit beaches (and resorts) on Caribbean side of island which is beautiful, the water is far calmer, and the beaches are more beautiful and natural. I regret not doing more research to find a resort better suited for our preferences on such a fantastic island. We selected this resort based in large measure on the glowing reviews - compelling me to write this one.

Awesome

A fantastic location. Great staff. Food and drink all inclusive was of a good standard. Hotel rooms and resort was clean and well maintained. Entertainment was variable but it is optional. Pool was great.

THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE IN MY LIFE!!!

I have passed 2 weeks in this resort and all was very good and excellent: beach, pools, rooms, cleaning everywhere, wonderful sea, etc....but the most excellent review is about the customer service, especially to the big and nice girl Myriam! She is the best person that I never known before, very kind and careful to ANY needs! It is the first time that I meet a person like her in my vacations, human and lovely like nobody before. She is now part of my family! Thank you for everything, Myriam! I hope to come back soon!! Antigua is special, very very nice! All is wonderful! The resort is very big but cleaned and well-finished anywhere! If I have necessarily to find a defect, MAYBE, is about the courses on the restaurant, too many spices, but good, anyway! RECOMMENDED AS 10/10!

Winter Vacation in Antigua

We have just returned from a week at the Verandah Resort and Spa in Antigua. I had read the many posted reviews of the resort prior to booking. All the positive reviews I read were found to be accurate. This is a beautiful resort on the Atlantic side of the island. The rooms are very spacious and clean. A fantastic balcony on each room. The resort is very well maintained and the grounds are exceptional. The resort is very spread out but it really doesn't take long to walk anywhere and rides are available if desired. The food I found to be exceptional and always plenty of it. We did dine once in the Buccaneer Restaurant and found the food to be great there as well but a more relaxed atmosphere than the buffet. There are plenty of families and young children but there are adult only areas should one wish to distance themselves from the younger people. The only criticism I have is that I may have, is of the staff as many do no more than necessary. They adequately do their jobs but very few go out of their way to be helpful or friendly. The most friendly staff I found were the grounds keepers and housekeeping staff. Overall it was a amazing vacation and we will probably return again. The weather was very windy on our week but there is nothing anyone could do about that. I would probably consider something on the Caribbean side of the island, as it seemed to be more sheltered.

We had 10 days at the Verandah. The whole complex is huge so if you struggle with walking you would have to get a buggy. We really enjoyed our stay. We just felt the rooms were a little tired and dated. The breakfast were good with a good choice it’s just a shame you can’t sit outside to eat it. We paid extra to eat in one of the restaurants and felt the food was no different to what you got in the buffet apart from being served to you. The gym is very well equipped with modern equipment and loads of free weights. We did enjoy our stay but we like to venture out to different restaurants and hadn’t realized how far away it was to get any where as the taxis are quite expensive at 65 dollars for a return trip. We love Antigua so much and have been quite a few times. We will be back.
