Amazing friendly staff

Welton, United Kingdom

A great hotel, with some of the friendliest staff we have ever met. We stayed in the Cove Suites, the room was very comfortable for us, a family of 3! It is a bit of a walk to the main hotel, but the Villa’s private pool is only a short few steps, as is the Cove Restaurant, the best in the hotel. The grounds were perfect, with all of the grounds team being extremely friendly, stopping and chatting about the holiday! I would love to name all the staff who looked after us, but I can’t remember everyone, so sorry for anyone I miss, Joe, Welgrove, Tarik, Mitchell, TJ, Kina, Carolyn, Alrick, you were all stars, I have no hesitation recommending this hotel.

Updated Review please read

I was harassed by a man about my review which goes to show you can't give honest opinions about what needs to be worked on so Ill repost this review again. I just recently stayed 5-night vacation at this resort now before I start my review im going to list the positives before I get to the negative. Pros: Staff was very well mannered, professional, and overall made my 5 boring night stay worthy. The hotel itself is a beautiful nice room, clean for the most part and well kept. THE STAFF AGAIN A PRO. NOW THE CONS BARE WITH ME: Cons: First coming in we were met and greeted by the whole entire staff it was lovely and we had lunch at Carolyns right after despite the lack of an expansive menu the food was simple and delicious and the best food on the property besides the cove. After eating at Carolyns we ate at the palm for dinner, my cousins fish was overcooked and hard my steak was bland the dinner was a flop. Now we have a lot of experience for all-inclusive resorts and eneterinament and activities are KEY to keeping me from not being bored but sadly the only form of entertainment at this resort was a band. We were shocked to wake up the next morning with no form of activities near the pool the beach, some music or flare it was boring. Not to mention breakfast at the palm was horrible. It was the same food everyday for breakfast and it was bland and lacked flavor or diversity of food choices for the money you are paying for. I also want to discuss the problem of the all inclusive plan: Signing for lunch and dinner was the most annoying thing I ever did. it made me feel a bit restricted in the all-inclusive plan and it was annoying that I had to wait for a bill to arrive for me to sign and leave compared to many all-inclusive stays I never once had to sign for anything. Also sometimes errors were made on the bill that was quickly fixed was still a bit of a burden a new system should be in place for people who paid for the all inclusive plan because it was most def not worth it for the money spent you feel so restricted. The Palm: yet again the palm was the worst place to eat lunch they also lacked flavor expect the wings and fries off the menu. I come to Antigua to get the Antiguan experience it did not have any home dishes, no Carribean flare, no real representation or diversity in this hotel at all. The cove and Carolyn's are the only places that taste good. Bartley's was horrible the food was bland, the palm is bland and overall I felt restricted in eating in general because in other hotels restaurants and other food joints are open at good times for me to grab food. Overall I honestly would never come back here it's NOT WORTH THE MONEY TRUST MEEEEEEEEE ITS A WASTE ONLY GOOD PART WAS THE STAFF AND THE FACILITY. the resort is boring, dry, and lacked good food and has so many restrictions to even consider even trying to open up all inclusive plan. No real activities besides water sports and those lack as well, and for you to truly enjoy yourself you must spend more money to go outside the hotel to get the Antiguan experience. Don't waste your money if you want bland food, no entertainment and just being bored by all means do that but it honestly was not worth the 2,000 dollars 5-night stay I was super glad to leave. I will be coming back to Antigua just skipping over the blue waters forever!
