Any resort that doubles your vacation options is a win in our book. Sandals Grande Antigua offers the best of both worlds with two sections of the resort — island-style cottages in the Caribbean Grove and luxury suites in the Mediterrean Village. But no matter which side of the resort you choose, the all-inclusive option here is particularly generous. Guests can enjoy unlimited land and water sports — even scuba diving is included.
The height of luxury in Antigua is at Hermitage Bay. The five-star resort forever changed how we viewed all-inclusives after toasting the sunset with Champagne (yes, the capital "C" Champagne from France — it's only top-shelf here) from our private infinity plunge pool.
Only accessible by boat, this legendary 40-room, 16-villa resort presides over a 300-acre island two miles off the Antiguan coast. All-inclusive offerings like movies right on the beach and a nightly turndown that includes champagne and strawberries make it a romantic pick, but active types will love it too — every guest room at Jumby Bay comes with bicycles to explore the tropical terrain. Our favorite perk? The speedometer on your bike keeps track of distance, and high mileage can be traded in for spa credits.
The Verandah Resort
The Verendah Resort's prime beachfront location make it a favorite, and we love the additional touches that keep the focus on you. For instance, there's no drink menu — simply tell the bartenders what you like and they'll whip up a custom cocktail.
Galley Bay Resort
With forty acres of tropical gardens nestled between a bird sanctuary and their signature beach, Galley Bay Resort is all about getting back to basics. However, by our standards, this all-inclusive Antigua resort is anything but basic. Beachfront cottages have their own private splash pools, and we couldn't get enough of the low-key nightly events — think Caribbean barbecues and cocktail parties right on the beach.
