When it comes to tropical island getaways, they don’t get much better than Antigua. With its beautiful beaches, sunny weather, and laid-back Caribbean charm, it’s everyone’s dream vacation.

Antigua has a plentiful supply of hotels and resorts catering to almost every type of traveller, which means choosing where to stay in Antigua can seem overwhelming. Let’s break down some of the many accommodation options available so you can find your perfect fit.

The first thing to bear in mind with Antigua is its size. This compact 108-square-mile island is just 13 miles across, and you can easily drive around the entire 56-mile coastline in a single day with time to spare. This means that no matter where you choose to stay, you will never be far from an array of bars and restaurants, attractions, or blissfully picturesque beaches.


Find an Antigua map with resorts and you will see most Antigua resorts can be found on the north, west and south coasts of the island.


 Antigua Luxury Resorts


Whether the accommodation comes in the form of condos, cottages, villas or swanky hotel rooms, Antigua specializes in 4- and 5-star luxury properties. No matter which one you choose, you are guaranteed stunning locations, swimming pools, restaurants, activities, and water sports all designed to give you a holiday to remember. What differentiates the properties are their target market and the inclusions in your nightly rate.

Antigua All-inclusive Resorts


If you want to wrap the majority of your holiday costs into a single upfront payment, try one of Antigua’s all-inclusive resorts. With all your meals and drinks included there are relatively few hidden costs, which makes them a great choice for families. Many offer free non-motorized water sports and a program of free activities too.

Antigua Family Resorts


Thinking of bringing the kids, and grandma and grandpa? The best family resorts cater to all ages with adult only pools where parents can sip on a cocktail while the little ones careen down a waterslide in the kid’s pool. Some child friendly Antigua resorts have dedicated kids’ clubs for toddlers to teens, with an array of organized activities from tennis, water sports and beach activities, as well as specially designed kids’ menus so your mini-me feels just as important. Come nighttime, a movie screening room showing those classic blockbusters is just the thing for lasting family memories.

Antigua Adults-Only All-inclusive Resorts


If you are seeking peace and tranquility away from the sound of children playing, Antigua offers a host of all-inclusive resorts that are adults only. So, whether you are looking for an all-inclusive couples resort where you can reignite the spark in your relationship, celebrate an anniversary milestone, or even an Antigua honeymoon resort to celebrate your newfound married bliss, these all-inclusive adults-only resorts are sure to tick those romantic getaway boxes. And with their all-inclusive packages, you’ll have nothing to think about except each other.

Antigua Boutique Resorts


Of course, not everyone’s idea of fun is spending time in a mega-resort, with queues at the restaurant and bar, and a morning hunt for a sun lounger by the pool. If your idea of a heavenly vacation is more restful relaxation than action-packed, activity-filled adventure, one of Antigua’s boutique resorts might be the perfect choice for you. These smaller properties cater to just a select few, and what they lack in amenities (think one swimming pool rather than two or three), they more than make up for in personal service. You’ll arrive as strangers but leave as friends.


Antigua Wedding Resorts


The romantic ambience of the island may very well encourage you to tie the knot, and there is no better place than in Antigua. Whether a planned destination wedding surrounded by family and friends or a simple ceremony for the two of you as you quietly elope, many resorts offer multiple wedding packages to suit your needs. Pick your elegantly decorated site - whether on the beach or garden gazebo, cake, bouquet, champagne, and add on extras such as photography, steel pan serenade, make-up and hair stylist. Or customize completely using the expertise of a first class wedding planner.


Antigua Honeymoon Resorts


Whether the ceremony was at home or on one of Antigua’s 365 beaches, your honeymoon is time for you both to relax, feel pampered and start your life journey together. Recognizing this special time, some resorts offer romantic honeymoon packages treating you to champagne on arrival, evening turndown service, breakfast in bed, couples massages, sunlit beach dinners and much more.
