Why stay in a hotel with guest rooms when you can stay in one that only has suites and villas! My kind of place! Here's the rundown on the Verandah Resort and Spa:
It's in Antigua which, as a destination, has 365 white sand beaches. Does anyone else consider that more a challenge than a random fact? Game on Antigua, that's like one a day for a full year. We better extend our next visit or plan a return trip.
The Verandah is an all inclusive resort and two of those 365 beaches are right here at The Verandah. Crystal clear water makes this a perfect place for families, as well as those looking for romance.
Speaking of All inclusive, not only is your food and drink included, but so is non-motorized watersports such as kayaking, windsurfing, hobie-cats, and snorkeling. There is also an 18 hole mini golf course, a mini-cinema, and awesome kids club, and plenty of teen activities. Are you looking to escape the kids? Don't worry, there is an adults only swimming pool. Go find your chaise lounge and relax in peace.
Remember when I mentioned The Verandah only has suites and villas? Well, they don't joke around when it comes to suites and villas. Check out the options!
The hillside Suites sleep 4 and offer a king size bed plus sofa bed and these offer garden views.
Then there is the Waterview Suites which sleep 4 and offer the same as the Hillside Suites but with partial views of the ocean.
For those that want to look right out onto that crystal clear water, The Verandah has Waterfront Suites and Superior Waterfront Suites which all offer King bed and sleeper sofa's as well, sleeps 4, but with views that face head on to the ocean. Notice the difference between ocean VIEW and Ocean FRONT. Two very different views that travelers new to the caribbean often confuse.
The actual rooms of the above mentioned categories all look like the first room picture. But the views are what differentiate them.
For those that want a little more space with the family, no need to worry. The 2 bedroom Villas sleep 6 and offer 1 King bed, 1 twin bedroom, queen sleeper sofa, 2 full bathrooms, a full kitchen, living room, bay views and sit adjacent to the villa swimming pool!
Convinced? Did you even read or are you still staring at the pictures? Yea, I figured as much. I think it's time you stayed and saw for yourself.
