The Verandah Resort & Spa in Saint Philip, Antigua and Barbuda
At a point where wild, exotic beauty meets a hidden white sand beach, Verandah Resort & Spa waits to take you back in time. Forget the rush of the 21st century as you unwind at this eco-friendly retreat on the untouched northeast coast of Antigua. With classic, timber-clad Caribbean architecture, accommodations make a sublime base for unforgettable sunrise viewing. Simply step out your front door and you will find 30 spectacular waterfront acres, the island's largest outdoor pool, a gorgeous bay and enticing proximity to Devil's Bridge National Park.
Each new day offers lessons in relaxation as you meander marked nature trails or take a leisurely stroll through the national park. You might embark on a boat ride to the uninhabited nature sanctuaries of Green or Bird Islands, or simply stay on the grounds and discover a world of living indigenous ecosystems. Because the coastline features a nearly unbroken wall of coral reef, you will find a wealth of snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities. And with the island's distinctive British heritage, unique attractions include Nelson's Dockyard and the ruins of beautiful old plantations.

Reviews for The Verandah Resort & Spa
We have just returned from a week at the Verandah Resort and Spa in Antigua. I had read the many posted reviews of the resort prior to booking. All the positive reviews I read were found to be accurate. This is a beautiful resort on the Atlantic side of the island. The rooms are very spacious and clean. A fantastic balcony on each room. The resort is very well maintained and the grounds are exceptional. The resort is very spread out but it really doesn't take long to walk anywhere and rides are available if desired. The food I found to be exceptional and always plenty of it. We did dine once in the Buccaneer Restaurant and found the food to be great there as well but a more relaxed atmosphere than the buffet. There are plenty of families and young children but there are adult only areas should one wish to distance themselves from the younger people. The only criticism I have is that I may have, is of the staff as many do no more than necessary. They adequately do their jobs but very few go out of their way to be helpful or friendly. The most friendly staff I found were the grounds keepers and housekeeping staff. Overall it was a amazing vacation and we will probably return again. The weather was very windy on our week but there is nothing anyone could do about that. I would probably consider something on the Caribbean side of the island, as it seemed to be more sheltered.

We had 10 days at the Verandah. The whole complex is huge so if you struggle with walking you would have to get a buggy. We really enjoyed our stay. We just felt the rooms were a little tired and dated. The breakfast were good with a good choice itâ€™s just a shame you canâ€™t sit outside to eat it. We paid extra to eat in one of the restaurants and felt the food was no different to what you got in the buffet apart from being served to you. The gym is very well equipped with modern equipment and loads of free weights. We did enjoy our stay but we like to venture out to different restaurants and hadnâ€™t realized how far away it was to get any where as the taxis are quite expensive at 65 dollars for a return trip. We love Antigua so much and have been quite a few times. We will be back.

The staff are great. Rooms are spacious and comfortable (huge bathroom) and the views, especially from the waterfront rooms, are wonderful (large balcony). Food at the main buffet was excellent and varied. The Buccaneer specialty restaurant was good. Overall, we had a great holiday with perfect weather.

We have just returned from the Verandah . The resort exceeded our expectations. We were welcomed at the Verandah with a cold towel and cocktail, it didnâ€™t take long to complete paperwork before we were taken to our bungalow in a buggy. The driver gave us a tour as we went through the resort which was great. The room was large although it was a bit dated but I had done a lot of research so I knew what to expect. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was good with plenty of hot water. There is some construction going on along side the main beach and again I was aware of this before we went , the noise was minimal but was a bit of an eyesore but once it has been completed it will be fine and you soon get used to it and donâ€™t really notice it ,just look out to see and forget it. Breakfast was good ,we had lunch at the beach Bar every day overlooking the bay . Food was always tasty and hot. In the evening we ate the first night at the buffet which was tasty but just wasnâ€™t hot ,so we decided to eat at the beach and the buccaneer after that.We never went hungry and we have both put on a few pounds . There is a coffee area next to the main bar which I used quite a bit - I love a cup of tea . The entertainment in the evening was good a there were a couple of excellent bands ,to add to the entertainment we loved to see the staff dancing to the music as they worked. All staff at the Verandah are a credit to the hotel, all were friendly,polite and attentive. We travelled as a couple but would like to return as a family with our grandson. The enclosed beach is ideal for young children.
I had a fantastic holiday here recently with my partner, would recommend and go back! We went out of the school holidays in february and found the resort to be perfect for a relaxing break! I get the impression it could become busy with families during the school holidays so bear this in mind. There was a wide range of evening entertainment and quieter spots as well. The mini golf was great and tennis courts lovely. Could not fault the food and drinks- wide variety on offer. I heard good things about Nicole's restaurant (which you pay a supplement for) though we didn't feel the need as there was a wide range of other dining options which we really enjoyed. There is a small amount of building work which can be seen at the edge of the main beach but this is discrete/ not noisy and didn't bother us in the slightest. The transfer to/ from the airport was easy and efficient. It's lovely wandering around the grounds of the resort and two very different beaches to enjoy with different beach bars...be aware that anyone with mobility issues may find getting around the resort tricky, though staff were always very friendly in offering lifts in golf buggies. Would thoroughly recommend, you are very well looked after!!
