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 had an ocean view room so beautiful outlook. Rooms very spacious and were cleaned every day to a very high standard. Our room was equidistance from Rasta beach and the main beach. We mainly went to Rasta beach which was quieter than the main beach,had plenty of sunbeds and shade. The bar at Rasta was better stocked. There were kayaks,pedalo and paddle boards although no hobicats ( these were available on main beach). All the water sports staff were friendly and polite. In fact most of the staff were friendly although some were more standoffish but having been to another resort before this seems to be typical. The main beach we found busier and unfortunately the bar was very underwhelming there. When we went there all they could offer was coke and lemonade which people then had to add alcohol from bottles to their own drinks. No blended drinks were available until the afternoon. The bar and grill restaurant was excellent, very good service and food. The seabreeze buffet restaurant for breakfast was excellent. Service great and selection of hot food amazing. Best egg station ever with the lady on there, chatting and cooking whatever you wanted. Lunches there had an amazing selection too. However dinner was slightly let down by the service. Very lax on topping up water glasses, never cleared plates away and waiting ages for tea and coffee. But again amazing choice of delicious food saved the day. Buccaneers food was good but again the service let it down. In fact we were forgotten on one occasion but was soon sorted out and their profuse apologies were accepted. Nicole's restaurant was amazing and if you are willing to pay the surcharge it's well worth it. Walking round the grounds was lovely and the ground staff always greeted you. Golf carts picked you up if there was space on them and there were bus stops where you could wait for them Snorkelling not very good as the waters never seemed to be clear enough. Lovely breeze at all times Late checkout was more hassle than necessary. Make sure you get this sorted by 6pm the night before you need it. Overall a lovely place

Just returned from a week at the Verandah Resort. This is a very nice all inclusive resort. I would say the food is average. You had your choice of the buffet Seabreeze Restaurant was open for all meals. Loved the view from the Beach Bar and Grill. There were several other a la carte restaurants to book for dinner if you wanted. We also enjoyed going over to The Pineapple Resort for a lovely dinner too. The Pineapple Resort is a sister resort and you are able to go over and enjoy thier beach and restaurants if you plan in advance. Their Italian Restaurant was very good! There is an adults only pool and a large pool for everyone. The beach areas are lovely. We never had a problem finding chairs in either place. They provide towels at all locations. No card exchanges for towels which worked very will. Bars are open most of the time. I would love it for them to have drink specials of the day which I have seen at other places. However the drinks were plenty strong and they were willing to make whatever you wanted. The grounds and the rooms are well maintained. There is plenty to do on the resort and plenty of side trips if that is what you want. The staff are not as friendly as most resort that I have gone to. This isn't true of all the staff. But generally colder than other islands I have been to. I had a stone massage at the spa. It was wonderful!! This was a wonderful trip. I would highly recommend the Verandah! Enjoy!

We have just returned from our second visit to the Verandah Resort & Spa. This is the first time ever that we have returned to the same resort. The first thing that really impresses is the open and spacious layout of the resort, which is thanks to it being a village-like collection of semi-detached single-storey villas set amongst established gardens and banana trees. Grounds are well maintained and very clean, and although there are some steep inclines around the place, there are plenty of golf buggies circulating to help the less mobile get about. The accommodation is air-conditioned and is very spacious having bed, sitting and kitchen areas; as well as a large bathroom with twin basins. Complimentary robes and toiletries are provided. All have private balconies, and the resort layout means even the hillside suites have views of the sea. We had an issue with the operation of a door, but it was rectified within minutes of being reported to guest services. There are 2 beaches linked to the Verandah: the main â€˜watersports beachâ€™ is at one end of the resort and provides use of hobbie-cats, kayaks and snorkels. There is a bar and toilets on the beach, with the bar-grill being at the top of what is quite a substantial set of steps. Although being the busier beach, there were always beds available; the second is the pretty Rasta beach at the other end of the resort by reception. This is very quiet so is ideal for couples, and has plenty of empty beds and shade from palms, as well as a bar and snack hut. Both beaches are in sheltered coves, so suffer from sea grass beds, which can restrict swimming â€“ but there are two pools to call on as well as the open Long Bay Beach, which is just 5 mins, walk from the resort and offers plenty of waves and snorkelling. The main Seabreeze restaurant is self-service and offers large amounts of good quality food with plenty of choice, three times a day. Evening meal themes such as â€˜Orientalâ€™, â€˜BBQâ€™ and â€˜Southernâ€™ are used on a weekly rotation, and Tuesday sees the open-air Managerâ€™s Pool Party and entertainment. Other options are the Ã la carte Buccaneers and Grill Bar that can be used subject to booking. Nicoleâ€™s is more formal serving the likes of T-bone steak and lobster, and is subject to additional charge, as well as booking. We tried all restaurants and have absolutely no complaints about the food or service. We found the staff to be friendly and courteous, and most were happy to enter into banter, once invited. Overall, we would certainly recommend this as a holiday destination for those looking for a chilled and unhurried break in a beautiful open setting.

beautiful resort, excellent place for families to relax and play. Amazing property with the perfect mix of privacy and amenities. Loved the rooms and the views. Antigua is a beautiful island, definitely recommend you get out and see the sites. We really enjoyed visiting the marina and historical sites.

We were slightly worried about this hotel being on the NE side of the island and therefore exposed to the Atlantic weather. However, this is not an issue at all because of the shelter of the bay. There was a gentle breeze and the water was flat. The resort has a very interesting design with all of the villas following the coastline between the two beaches. This means that everybody is spread out rather than there being a single hotel block, and nearly everybody gets a great view. We had no problem with the distance between facilities, but golf buggies ferry people around who don't want to walk. The rooms are the standard layout with big balconies. They are fairly unremarkable but are kept very clean. The one negative is that each building contains two villas and there is minimal sound-proofing. The main restaurant is buffet-style and was excellent in terms of quality and quantity. We loved one of the reservation restaurants (Beach Grill) but were very disappointed by the other (Buccaneers). The casual beach food was also surprisingly good. We saw no need to pay the extra for the fine-dining restaurant. We thought that all of the drinks were good - beers, wines, cocktails, etc - and the coffee/tea station behind the main bar is a good idea. We used the watersports, the main pool (which is big) and the tennis courts, and they were all excellent. The mini-golf is heaps of fun and we ended up doing it three times! There are plenty of sun-loungers on the beaches and round the pools and so it isn't too competitive, and around the pools and bars there is a good variety of other seating. There is good shade on the beaches. The gym was very well-equipped, but we just didn't have time to use it. The organised activities were mixed, with some being well done and some being a bit silly. Along with The Pineapple, the hotel runs half-day boat trips on the Calypso Cat. This was a highlight of the holiday. Even though we like to try different places, we would consider returning to The Verandah, and we would easily recommend it to others.
