Antigua Resort Reviews & Adults Only Relaxation

Ready to spend the day looking at amazing resorts!
Ready to spend the day looking at amazing resorts!

Who was lucky enough to visit Antigua for the first time this July? Me! Our first stay was the Pineapple Beach Resort and I had a Garden View on the second level, but I was able to see the ocean from my balcony. The beach there was great, the food was incredible, the entertainment at night was stellar, and the Hideaway Bar up on the hill was fabulous. I loved my stay there and would definitely go back. Our next stop as a travel agent group was Hodges Bay. This property has up to four bedroom lodging for families or smaller groups. It features great food & a nice swim up bar. Right offshore is Prickly Pear Island, a private Beach Club. We stayed in the water for hours there because it was just delectable and the sun was shining. My final stay was three nights at the Adults Only Galley Bay - just paradise in my room overlooking the ocean.


I have a lot of pictures and information for anyone wanting to explore and stay on this island. It has 365 beaches! Every kind of accommodation you would need from honeymoon to golf trips. Special highlight - Our last night as a group featured a sunset catamaran cruise. We boarded in the surf and sailed the coast dancing to lovely Caribbean music. 


Whether you are after private luxury pools overlooking the ocean for a honeymoon, or a resort that includes all activities and meals, I have ideas of the perfect spot!


These are the resorts we toured before I spent three nights at Galley Bay- St. James, Carlisle Bay, Curtain Bluff, Sandals Grande Antigua, Royalton (over the water bungalows), Blue Waters Resort, Hammock Cove, The Verandah, Hermitage, and Tamarind Hills. I stayed at three resorts while there - Pineapple Beach, Hodges Bay, and Galley Bay.


Every Sunday night there is a sunset party at Shirley Heights with steel drum music and incredible local food/drinks. I am so glad I took that trip because the island is steeped in history and lore. My taxi driver told me so much that intrigued me and made me want to return and bring friends and family. Come, explore.


I will be happy to help you find your perfect spot on Antigua.

10 Year Anniversary Trip to Ireland
Working with Gail was BEYOND incredible! Her knowledge and expertise was extremely helpful, plus when we had a few glitches with our tour, she went above and beyond to get us satisfaction for our troubles. Burkhalter needs to give this woman a raise!!!! The term "dog with a bone" comes to mind. When we were having troubles with some of the companies we were staying with Gail went to bat and didn't back down! I would whole-heartedly recommend Gail to anyone needing assistance with their travel plans! We won't hesitate to use her for our next adventure!

Mike, It was a pleasure working with your group and a disappointment when we had to shut it down due to Covid-19. However, when the time is right, the adventure still awaits and it will be a go! Thank you for your kind words. Gail

Wonderful, care free Jamaican vacation
Gail made booking our trip so easy and worry free! Plus she added in a bunch of extra tips that helped make our the trip the best we've ever had, and we like to travel a lot. We had a cancelled flight on the way home, and with two small kids traveling internationally that was not good news. Before we could even get to the front of the customer service line Gail had us booked on a different flight just a few hours later. We will definitely be using Gail for our next vacation!
