Recent guest reviews

It's a wonderful place to stay. Everyone on the resort is so nice, friendly and they make everyone feel welcome. The food was good and the entertainment was great. We went for my sister's birthday and they also helped us celebrate.

Large resort golf carts , available to transport guests. Resort is secluded and far from most areas but you won't need anything once your there if on all inclusive plan . Buffet food was good ,food at the beach/pool bars was ok. Beaches in resort are small and full of seaweed walk to nearby long bay for beautiful beach

food are horrible, service people are slow and lazy

We would love to again, good staf and hard working people. Food was excellent with warm services.

The rooms are clean, comfy, and spacious. The veranda is huge with a table and 4 chairs. Spectacular views through out the resort. Food is delicious. My husband is allergic to wheat gluten. Chef Glen was always visible and gladly answered any questions. Beach is beautiful but to reach it you have to go down about 60 stone steps. We look forward to going back!

This is a nice smaller resort. the bungalows or little house are pretty and each has a balcony overlooking the sea or the garden. I had a garden room which was spacious but the furniture could be updated und the sheet were scratchy, but my room was quiet and not too far from the restaurant and big main pool. The entertainment at night could be better and the food was average. Breakfast hat a lot of fresh fruit which I liked. - The staff was very helpful and friendly and the golfcarts were always coming after a few minutes. They were the nicest staff I have come in contact with in a long time. The "quiet" beach was not nice and completely unswimmable , as it was very shallow and full of rocks. The bigger beach war fine, but in the beginning also very shallow and muddy . One had to swim way out to finally experience clear water. So several times I went around the corner to Long Beach ( near the Pineapple Resort) All in all I would give the resort a 3 1/2 star.

I've visited this resort once before, and I was very excited to have a reservation there for three days. However, it was a horrible experience. The room was not as nice as I expected it to be. I booked for 3, however only 2 were accomodated and I had to pay extra for my third guest. The room was not cleaned daily. The staff was rude. I had called the front desk multiple times for help, but never received any. I was once locked out of the room, called for someone to open my door, yet no one came. I was charged for the internet twice, which did not even work. When I complained to the front desk, they did nothing to fix my situation. I was very disappointed and upset with this stay, and will definitely never repeat it again.

Family of four (2 children 9 and 5). We just came back from our vacation on tuesday. We had a wonderful time. The resort is gorgeous. Very large bedroom with balcony with views of the sea. Very quiet and relaxing. The only thing missing: not a lot of entertainment at night. The food is really good. The staff is helpful and very nice. We would definitely return.

After a brutally cold winter, we wanted nothing but sunshine and beach/pool. We had perfect weather, choice of beach location or pool location. Our room was centrally located to everything. The food could have been more createive.

The room was spacious and so was the bathroom with a large soaking tub.To confirm another review: the bed was hard.The view was good with a partial view of the water. The food was only OK, except for The Grill (included) and one of the specialty restaurants ($25 additional/person). ..but there was good variety. The drinks were as generous as it gets.. whatever you wanted was part of the "all inclusive", including very nice call brands. But the magnificent part was the beach and protected bay. The sand was powder soft, full use of the catamaran (sailed by you or a staff member who takes you out whenever you want), kayaks, paddle boat and other water toys... warm water with sandy bottom.

I travel for business and was completely misled by the discription given for this hotel. 4.7 Miles West of VC Bird airport - more like 24 MILES or 45 MINUTES from Bird airport. Internet access, NO - not in the room, Wireless access, NO - not in the room, very important for a business traveler. Early meetings in St.John required I leave at 7:00 am WITHOUT breakfast. NO ROOM SERVICE - breakfast buffet not set up until 7:30 am. Front desk suggested taking food from the evening buffet for breakfast - NO FOOD CAN BE TAKEN FROM BUFFET. 2 small water bottles bought at the gift shop $10.00 USD!!! I arrived back at the hotel each evening at 8:00pm, requested a massage, NO - only 9:00am - 5:00pm. Requested a reservation at Nicole steakhouse, NO - not open until Friday. Sofa bed very uncomfortable felt the metal bar through the mattress.

The hotel grounds were beautiful. The staff were pleasant & personal.It was relaxing& enjoyable. The massage was great. We rented a car & went to other beaches & drove through the rain forest. It was all beautiful. By the way the happy cow resides in Antigua.

This resort is very quiet and restfull. We found this very attractive. If you are looking for a party place, this isn't it, although they did have entertainment each evening. No room service. Need beverage service at pool/beach. Staff friendly but not helpful about special requests. The location is remote and if your looking for off resort activity such as exploring St. Johns or other beaches, it's inconvienent and requires a significant taxi ride. We lounged at the pool, read and for the most part just relaxed. This is a great place to just that. We took the excursion to Shirley Hts. on Sunday,if you're looking for Reggae music and island food, this is for you. International cliental. Wide age range of guests.

Absolutely stunning resort and spa.

You will definitely be receiving a detailed letter from me. The hotel was very overpriced and over-rated. This was our 9th all-inclusive, the most expensive, and by far the worst ever. We chose this hotel because they promoted it as a family friendly resort. There was nothing family friendly about it. First of all, if you wanted a child's meal you had to order it separately in the buffet restaurants. They ran out of many items, nuggets, fries, straws, strawberries for any "strawberry drinks". No stocked fridge in room, or bottled water included. And the a la carte restaurant is buffet during peak season. Didn't waste our money for Nicole's ($25/person surcharge),but heard it was horrible. There were no family activities, no pool activities, no music at pool, no service at pool. There was only ever 1 bar tender and there was always a line. Everyone acted as if you were bothering them when you asked for something. Lots of attitude from staff. Pretty much the same food every day. Room was plain. Floors filthy dirty even after multiple requests to clean. Bed was worst we've ever experienced. I could go on and on. We are average middle-class people with with normal jobs. We are not snobs and do not stay at the Ritz. We do however expect to be treated well on vac and up until this trip have found all-inclusives to pamper you and treat you well. Esp. at a 4 star resort. I would not advise going here. Oh and the kids club is a nice facility--but as the lady at guest services advised me too bad they haven't put more into it to organize activities for kids.

The Verandah Resort & Spa, St Johns, Antique was first class .Staff were very accommodating and friendly, food was very good extremely varied great presentation. Rooms clean and have great views of the bay. Beach bar has a spectacular view of bay and ocean. The hotel is a little far from some of the main site seeing places, but has a car rental on site and taxi available all the time they are a little expensive but fun to ride in missing the goats, sheep, donkeys, cows and pot holes etc. All in all we would certainly go back again.
