    With just 72 rooms and suites nestled into a cove on Antigua's southern coast, Curtain Bluff emphasizes its Caribbean setting – wild nightlife and modern luxuries are secondary. Reviewers are quick to stress that this all-inclusive resort doesn't cater to the party crowd. The property offers an immersive vacation experience – guest rooms don't include televisions. Instead, you'll get floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the sea. Spend your days enjoying spa treatments (for an extra fee), playing tennis, scuba diving or napping on the beach. In the evening, dine at The Tamarind Restaurant or The Seagrape, or savor a glass of wine from the resort's specialized cellar. Curtain Bluff may not boast some of the conveniences of home, but visitors find the resort's other amenities outweigh those needs. Note: Curtain Bluff closes annually between mid-August and late October.

    If you're seeking over-the-top luxury on Antigua, look no further than Jumby Bay Island. For a pretty penny, you can bask on this small private islet 2 miles off the northeast coast of Antigua and soak up the rays on its powdery white sands. Despite its cost, recent guests thought their money was well-spent: With spectacular vistas and top-notch service, visitors had very few complaints. As for digs, Jumby Bay's Rondavel rooms reside in octagonal cottages, and each features a four-poster bed, a private courtyard, a wraparound terrace and an outdoor shower. If you can shell out some additional coin for a private villa (read: estate), you'll get your own pool and direct beach access. The resort itself offers land and water sports, three pools, a tennis club and The Jumby Bay Spa. When hunger sets in, you'll have your pick of three sit-down dining venues, which serve everything from casual poolside fare to upscale Caribbean cuisine. A grab-and-go beach shack with West Indian-style street snacks (think: fresh seafood and wraps) is available as well. All meals, snacks and beverages are covered by the resort's all-inclusive room rates.

Hermitage Bay caters specially to romantic vacationers, offering wedding and honeymoon packages, as well as a spa with the tantalizing Siddhartha Art of Love treatment, which includes aromatherapy services and exotic tea tastings.

The 28 marble- and mahogany-floored rooms are within walking distance of the beach, while the cottages sit right on it. Recent guests said that while the food at the Terrace Restaurant was good, it lacked a large variety for those on extended stays.

For all its relaxing benefits, previous guests noted the remoteness of this resort, saying it's great for couples and families who want peace and quiet. Many also praised the cuisine served at the property's five dining venues.

    Pineapple Beach Club Antigua - Adults Only - All Inclusive
    Willikies
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Part of the Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts family (a subset of the Sandals brand), Grand Pineapple Beach Antigua puts an emphasis on surf and sand. Sitting on 25 acres flanked by idyllic shoreline, this resort's 180 guestrooms are decorated in tropical teal and sea green, so even if you're not directly on the sand, you'll still feel Grand Pineapple's beachy ambiance. The theme continues throughout the resort's restaurants, though some guests complain that the atmosphere is diminished somewhat by the frenetic nature of The Outhouse bar, which, apart from having a questionable name, proved understaffed. And while recent visitors found the beach on Antigua's north shore every bit as perfect as Grand Pineapple promised, some were disappointed with their basic amenities and shabby digs, citing faults like rusty shutters and exposed pipes.
