The Grand Pineapple Antigua Guest Reviews Are Important Before Booking Your Vacation

I have read a number of Grand Pineapple Antigua Guest Reviews, and was a little nervous before taking my young family there on vacation, but I needn't have been. Although like anyone writing a review I have my own opinions, and the first thing that I must say is by Far East standards this is not a 5 star. Caribbean 5 star beach resorts are different altogether.

The Pineapple Beach is situated on probably the best beach in Antigua, in a lovely cove, and it is quite small compared to other all inclusive resorts I have experienced

We arrived hot and tired, to be given a welcoming rum punch drink. Our room wasn't fantastic, it had great views of the beach and the resort. It is fair to say that the furniture in the room looked worn out, so it is no great surprise to hear the resort is due to close for a makeover, but I understand it will reopen as a couples only resort which is a bit disappointing.

One of my gripes on a vacation is the availability of sun loungers and shade, but the Pineapple Beach Resort had plenty around the pools, although if you wanted to be on the beach, that meant the dawn patrol to get an umbrella.

The two pools, in fact the whole of the resort was well maintained and very clean, and mostly very quiet.

As you would expect service is slow both around the pools, and in the restaurants, but this is the Caribbean, and you are on vacation, so it is no big deal.

In terms of food outlets, there is an outdoor kitchen near the two tiered pool, where they do burgers hot dogs and fries.

The main eating and dining area is the Topaz Room which looks over the beach. This is where we ate excellent breakfast and lunches but we were a bit disappointed in the evening meal there. I'd recommend the Pineapple Grill for dinner, and definitely the Outhouse Snack bar for beers and a tasty snack or two during the day.

One complaint people have about all inclusive is that drinks take forever to come, and aren't particularly strong, well there is a solution!! We were advised to tip the barmen well early on, and we did, and our drinks were not only served promptly, but also were potent!!

Our children were well looked after, there was childrens entertainment going on, so they were happy digging sandcastles etc. We weren't too impressed with the nightly entertainment which was boring and repetitive.

Overall as an Antigua Pineapple Beach review it is mostly plusses. The staff were great, the resort small enough to be personal, but I fear all will change with the new owners and the refurbishment, when it will reopen as a couples only resort.

Siboney Beach Club In Antigua A Secluded Romantic Caribbean Resort
