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 recently spent 7 nights at The Verandah Resort & Spa (Nov 22-29) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The 2 bedroom family villas were the perfect accommodation for our family of four (my wife, twin 10-year olds, and me). The central location of the family villas made the golf carts a luxury not a necessity to get around. With plenty of activities at the resort (mini-golf, billiards, table-tennis, kayaks, hobie cats, and paddle boards) as well the main pool and two beaches, not once did either of our children proclaim they were bored â€“ even with us banning their access to technology (tablets) on the trip. In fact, my 10-year old son proclaimed that our vacation here was almost as fun as Disney World â€“ high praise from a 10-year old viewpoint indeed. We very much look forward to coming back to the resort in April 2018.

We spent a week at this resort (Dec 2-9)and enjoyed our stay! Good food with many choices! The a la carte restaurant,Buccaneer, food was great but we found service was a bit slow! Staff very friendly and helpful throughout resort. Our villa was clean and looked after everyday while we were there. The nightly entertainment was so so.
We stayed here for 2 weeks November 26-December 10th. The setting of this resort is amazing with cottages spread out on cliffs overlooking the beaches, ocean, and local houses. The grounds are well manicured. We chose to stay at the quiet beach as the washroom, rasta bar, and grill were close by. The main beach is breath taking but I was extremely disappointed that the bar and washroom was up way too many steps that I didn't want to climb. My favourite bar tender Vera made amazing drinks for us at the rasta bar and we had great conversations with her during our stay. The watersports staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. Two staff I would like to recognize are esmond and zoey. During our stay we saw both of these men on separate occasions rescue guests who were having issues in the water, if they haven't had noticed i'm sure these guests wouldn't have made it home from their vacation. These watersports men have the patience to instruct us on the safe operation of the equipment and even took the time to take us out for a couple of sails on the hobie cats. The food was amazing, we are avid travellers and have never had better food then at this resort. My friend is vegan and we were surprised with the selection she had to choose from. Meals could be arranged 24 hours in advance to make sure her dietary needs were met. A couple negative points would be no bottled water in the mini fridge. Although the resort says we can drink from the tap, travellers are leary of drinking water in the carribean. Definately bring bubba mugs to fill them at the bars. If you are a joiner there are activities scheduled every hour. Devils bridge, and long bay are at either ends of this resort. I have never experienced another resort with the high level of professionalism and service then the verandah. Unfortunately I had a minor accident at the beach, felix (peru) went and cut me some aloe for my foot. Guest services took pictures and a report. When we returned to our room there was a letter and a bottle of sparkling wine from management. Manager Brambel went the extra mile and brought a doctor to my room to check me out and give me medication. He also took the time to investigate the situation to make sure another guest wouldn't get hurt. This was the only resort that I have experienced who actually cares about their guests and their reputation. The entertainment was at the main bar from 9-11 and was live music. The atomic band was phenomenal, the female artist had a great voice. Shaville at the main bar made our night, he mixed us some of the best drinks we've ever had, he showed some real southern hospitality and even ran to get some ingredients he needed to keep us happy. Our 2 weeks went way too fast, we tried to book another week but the resort was full. If you ever get a chance to stay at this top shelf resort do spend more then a week. We became apart of the family and it was extremely hard to say goodbye yesterday. The staff kept asking us when we would be back........hopefully soon. Thanks to all of the hardworking professional staff who made our first trip to antigua unforgettable. Natalie Bullard and Karen Jeffrey Room #153

This is our 2nd visit which was planned for my 50th birthday with my wife and daughters 18 & 15. From the moment I got in touch with the hotel and asked for specific rooms and having dropped the hint it was a big birthday nothing was too much. The staff are fantastic very polite and very chatty and more than happy to chat especially about football as my youngest found out. Myriam the front of house manager was just fantastic nothing was a problem for her. We arranged a day out on the pink panthers to see the island and we joined with a group of Canadians. The girls knew how to show the island and have fun and banter at the same time (Thanks Ladies my girls loved the day) daughter and I did a morning deep sea fishing as she hadn't done it before. Well I wished she hadn't come as she caught all the fish and a 30lb sail fish to my one little barracuda. So thanks for that captain Jack I wont live it down again. The food in the restaurants is what you expect from the islands lots of it hot and tasty. But as I said before the staff make it more like a top place to eat. Curtis wasn't happy if you weren't and went out of his way to make you smile. Natasha and Valda were again always there to make everything great and make fun. We have travelled the Caribbean but this is the only place we have been back to and we will be back again very soon.

This resort was absolutely breath taking. Overall we had zero complaints about the resort and would happily recommend it to a friend. My boyfriend and I traveled to Antigua in late November and this was our first time on the Island - and his first time in the Caribbean. The locals were all very friendly and the resort staff were always happy to see you and come over and chat. Upon arrival, we were greeted with rum punch which were quickly replenished as a large crowd of us arrived to check in at the same time. We were then swept away in a golf cart to our room. We had an ocean view room that was right on the main pool which was a very convenient location - across from the pool, restaurants and main bar area. We never found it too loud, even on nights when we went to bed before the evening entertainment ended. There were always people in the room attached to ours but we never heard them through the walls or out on the balcony, even though there was a young child with them. We spent a lot of mornings on our balcony enjoying coffee we could make in the room. The neighboring balcony (not the one attached to ours) was within sight but far enough away that you still felt you had privacy. The resort had a beautiful layout that encourages you to walk everywhere and enjoy the breathtaking views. If you do get tired, you can call for a golf cart to pick you up or there are ones running by every 10-15 minutes that would be happy to pick you up. The only areas we usually took a golf cart to was reception, the mini golf/tennis area and the Rasta Beach as they are set off to the side from the main area. The main beach is located less than a two minute walk from the main pool/restaurant area. The mini golf was a fun activity to do after the sun had set (open until 9pm) when it had cooled off, as it also was less busy without kids there. The evening entertainment was always enjoyable, as they usually had local bands/DJs and one night was karaoke. I wouldn't say this is a 'party' resort as most nights were pretty tame which was nice for those who like to enjoy a few drinks while listening to nice music, without having to worry about things getting too out-of-hand. The food was incredible. We ate breakfast at the Seabreeze buffet, lunch usually at the Main Beach Bar or the buffet, and we tried all the supper options. Nicole's was well worth the $35USD/person as the service was great, the food was incredible (we had lobster and duck two ways) and they had an assortment of higher end alcohols (delicious red and white wine, local 5 year aged rum, grey goose, etc.). We also enjoyed eating at Bucaneers, as the food was a level up from the buffet. We did find the portions at the a la carte restaurants to be rather large (we are lighter eaters), which is nice for those with big appetites. We found that if you tip well for food and drinks the first few times you go, you will be provided with great service. We usually tipped $1-2 on drinks at the bar and $3-$5 at the buffet/restaurants, other than Nicole's we tipped $10. We also left some money for housekeeping on the days we required housekeeping. Kerri-Anne and Jahnielle were great bartenders who remembered our favourite drinks and always made sure our cups were full and we were having a good time. It is a very good feeling when the staff remember your name and little things about you, and say hi to you and make an effort to have a conversation with you whenever they see you around. There was a lot to do at the resort during the day, as they ran daily activities (we loved the trivia and corn hole), as well as you did not have to sit in one place for long periods of time as we moved between the two beaches and the main pool. We also utilized the adult pool when the kids pool got busy. With that being said, we never had an issue finding chairs in the shade at either beaches or the pools and we never felt that there were too many people in one place. We also never had to wait more than a few minutes to get seated at the resturant. Although they said the resort was full and we saw lots of people walking around, there were never areas that felt overly crowded or busy, which speaks to the size of the resort and the variety of things to do at any given point in the day. We also did the resort-endorsed excursion called the Pink Panther. It is a range rover safari tour that takes you around the whole island, stopping at some historical sites, look out points, a beach and a restaurant for lunch. It was an additional cost but well worth it, as you get to see most of the island in one day and the women who ran our tour were very knowledgeable on the history of Antigua. There is also quite a few non-motorized water sports you can do for free at the main beach of the resort. We took out a two-person kayak and used the floating water tubes for naps quite frequently! Overall, this was an incredible resort. Well worth the price to go and we will definitely consider coming back in the future!
