I use Trip Advisor regularly and what I have come to learn is that people look at things in different ways. I'm not suggesting some of the recent reviews are not valid, but our experience was much more positive and we would definitely go back. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful and we could not have asked for more from any of them. I never heard anything but positive comments from other guests. Sugar Ridge is an excellent Boutique hotel in a good location. The rooms are simple and clean with great views and the facilities (gym and pool) are more than functional. The food is good in both restaurants (Carmichaels has a great setting), but it is not so varied that I would consider all-inclusive. Breakfasts are consistently good, if a bit limited. There are a variety of good restaurants at different budgets a short ride from the resort. Al Porto in Jolly Harbour is excellent and Sheer Rocks has a location reminiscent of The Cliff in Barbados. The hotel shuttle service to local beaches is very flexible, but you will also need taxis to get around. Ask for John Henry.The Nest is the best beach with the friendliest staff. Thank you Sugar Ridge for a great stay.

We check in to Sugar Ridge for a 2 week vacation during the last 2 weeks of July 2017. The check in was great with very polite staff and when I ask for a second rum punch there no no wait for the punch that were just delightful. The room was great very comfortable and quite large. The included breakfast was all you eat and very tasty really enjoyed it. The staff were better than great very friendly and as the days passed they felt more like family than staff we were on a first name basis with all of the them. To name a few Samantha, Sendian, Arlene Coleen, Tony and soooo many more. It was one of our best vacations every. One last point the Island of Antigua was incredible and very beautiful I wish I can get back soon. Kenneth Forbes

We dropped in for a coffee and to check the place out for a future stay . service was slow but we did eventually get a coffee and then ordered a second one . When we came to pay I handed over about 20usd in local currency and waited for my change . after 15 minutes it looked like the change scam was happening , when they hope you get bored and leave without waiting for your usd7 or whatever in change . We found someone who look really guilty who said that a very basic filter coffee was around $7 and so we still owed them a little bit of money . I know we were only walk-ins but this is a fairly basic hotel on a very steep hill and that is over twice what we have been asked to pay in six or seven hotels and resorts in antigua over the last week . I think the lady may have been making up the charge for a coffee to make a bit of money on the side , but in any case it is either ludicrous pricing or poor management of staff . avoid this place like the plague

We did not realize, when we booked our hotel down the road from Sugar Ridge, that a New Years celebration was occurring there which was ultimately far better. Thus we spent the $130US a piece for Sugar Ridge "all inclusive." Pros: The young woman who booked the reservation was very pleasant and helpful Cons: Location signage: There are actually two entrances to Sugar Ridge, one that goes up a LONG STEEP hill to houses or condos and the other that is the main entrance. We found this out when we went to pick up our tickets and hiked to the top uninterrupted by the person in the guard shack. It should say something other than just Sugar Ridge on the sign to let visitors know there is a second entrance. Dress Code: There really isnt one. We were told that it was semiformal/formal with men required to wear long sleeve shirts optional tie and dress slacks which required us packing extra. Very few actually did this with several attending in shorts and very casual attire which would have been great. Venue/Food: Poorly managed event. When we finally were allowed entry they were still setting up tents and decorating. We kept expecting that when all was ready some announcement would be made which it never was. One would never know from the plain white table cloths and white bunting that it was New Years Eve and not just some simple wedding. Cheap plain hats, horns and tiaras. Theme was Game of Thrones and yet nothing indicated that. Food: We were told that dinner started at 9pm when the event was supposed to start. Guests were not allowed in until 9:45 and "dinner" was not announced or served until after 10:15. It consisted of conch soup which was very good, dry chicken skewers, sliced pork and sliced turkey all served in the red and white checkered paper boats that fries normally come in. No utensils other than a plastic spoon were supplied. Worst of all there were NO CHAIRS. There were 3 levels of tickets and we were in the midrange which consisted of 8 tall cocktail tables around the pool area. Guests had to find seating around the area on walls. Beverages: They had VERY limited selection to choose from. No white rums at all. There was a Ciroc bar which had limited Ciroc choices and a Johnny Walker bar. Rum punch was made individually which made the drink ordering process slow. Sparkling choices were also limited and cheap. There was not even an opportunity to purchase anything other than the limited liquors. Again, Jolly Beach had a FAR better selection for drinks. Staff: WAAAY too many staff. Prior to entry we had to go through security which seemed absurd. We were told it was to keep folks from going outside of their assigned ticket area. Up until 11pm we could freely roam between all three. After that it suddenly restricted us to the mid range ticket. Nothing was different in all three. The DJ was the same, no actual dance floor as it was the pool area, food was the same, beverages the same but the top tier tickets received light up champagne glasses- whoopee. No staff cleared the area of used food containers, plastic cups or napkins so it accumulated all around. There had to have been at LEAST two staff if not three to each guest and yet they did not smile or interact at all. Still not sure what most of them were there for. Entertainment: The guest DJs tent was finally ready around 11:15. He launched into at least two songs that had been played in the previous 30 minutes that few danced to which was absurd. Speakers way too loud even for an outdoor event. No one on the VVIP level was dancing, one couple on the VIP and about ten on the "cheap" tickets level. Anyone staying at the resort in the rooms surrounding the pool area would get NO sleep until it ended as the sound had to be going out to them. Bugs: On our arrival we were told to wait in the lobby. We saw SR guests applying copious amounts of bug spray. Jolly Beach down the road did not have any bug issue so we did not think about purchasing bug spray. I was bitten all evening while we were at SR so that added to the poor experience. They do not warn you that they don't do bug control at the resort or if they do it need VAST improvement. Overall: We are not folks who give up on an experience but give the venue a chance. At 11:15 seeing that things were not looking to get any better we cut our losses and took a cab back down to Jolly Beach Resort which had about 500 or more people a band and singer, packed dance floor, decorations that screamed celebrate, neon necklaces and wands, balloons galore and a festive atmosphere unlike SR which screamed boring wedding. By going to Sugar Ridge we missed a lovely buffet at JBR. Don't waste your money on this place for New Years when there are better, more well planned venues with more pleasant staff who want to celebrate with you.

We checked in on the 27th December for 5 nights and were excited when we arrived at the beautiful resort that is sugar ridge, the staff were lovely and rooms were recently refurbished to a high standard. We caught the shuttle up to the top of the resort which is on top of a hill and it literally all went downhill from there.... The 6 sun loungers by the pool in a resort that boasts 60 rooms where all taken so we had to sit in the sun on an upright chair. To get back down to our room a car which services the resorts was called and took 20 minutes to arrive, we thought the delay was a one off but it became apparent that it was the only car the resort had and did their beach drops offs as well as acting as a shuttle up and down the resort so there was always a 20/30 minute wait. The driver of the shuttle Cartwright is a credit to the resort but honestly get another vehicle even if it’s a golf cart and employ another driver! You can’t make people wait long on their vacation! We went for breakfast at the sugar club the the next day and went to take our seats before we were asked to go back at the entrance and wait to be seated, when we finally were the breakfast that followed was honestly the blandest food I️ have ever put in my mouth, the best way to describe it is if you gave ingredients to a 5 year old and asked them to cook. How a hotel can get breakfast wrong is beyond me! We thought the hotels main restaurant couldn’t be nearly as bad but again we were left disappointed when we visited Charmichaels that evening. Rather than giving us a taste of the Caribbean we were served small portions of wannabe boujis food on huge white plates. No bottles of water are provided in the room other than when you first check in, if you have a resort on the hill surely you provide fresh bottles every day if not have them in the fridge as a mini bar option, no Sugar Ridge just leave you to dehydrate! On New Years Eve the resort held an outdoor party that finished at 4am, I️ love a party but guests should be warned prior to booking that if you’re looking forward to some shut eye on NYE after a few rums forget it! There’s a rave going on under your bed! In a nutshell whoever manages this resort seems to have no clue how to delegate, as warm and the friendly the staff are they need a leader to make this beautiful resort a great place to visit, until then I️ wouldn’t even stay at Sugar Ridge if it was free.......
