Spacious condo steps to the beach

Our family of 4 enjoyed our week-long stay at Tranquility Bay Antigua, a quiet and peaceful condo resort steps from the beautiful Jolly Beach on the Caribbean (western) side of the island, with access to the swimming pools, gym, tennis, activities and evening programs at the lively all-inclusive resort next door with an international crowd, including plenty of families with kids. Our 2 Br/ 2 Bath condo was spacious and well equipped for our family, we were able to prepare breakfasts and lunches in our condo kitchen , dine outdoors on the covered balcony and walk to nearby restaurants at Jolly Harbor Marina for dinners. Hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful at scheduling tours and excursions of the island. TBA felt safe and secure. Condo building was older but clean, Beds were comfortable, washer/dryer was provided in our condo, housekeeping services were provided and this was a good home base for us as we explored Antigua. We had rented a car to drive/explore ourselves but driving was treacherous as roads are narrow, potholed, not always paved and driving is on the left. We were often dodging pedestrians, livestock and other vehicles. I would recommend using taxis.

Pros: Friendly staff, walking distance to restaurants and supermarket, access to facilities at neighboring all-inclusive resort and beach access.

Cons: Lack of drinking water (need to buy bottled water); inadequate supply of towels, exterior drainage issues (after rains), poor water pressure (shower)

Location: We enjoyed rainforest hike, snorkeling Cades Reef, trip to Nelson's Dockyard, kayak mangroves, Island Jeep tour , buying mangos from roadside stands.

NOT SO TRANQUIIL!!!

Sadly Tranquility isn't all that tranquil after all! Major problems with my booking upon arrival.................I was not alone.....other guests had the same issues! The place is very dated, needs serious work done......if you Google the place it comes up as one of the top hotels in Antigua!!! No it isn't! Certainly no where near 4 star as it claims....more 2 star!!! Staff, pleasant enough but not that interested nor helpful when there''s a problem.....too many 'Island smiles' and not enough done efficiently. On the plus side.....bed very comfortable, sun always hot and beach lovely and close by. Would definately NOT stay there again unless someone else paid! Not value for money, overpriced......so NOT RECOMMENDED AS A PLACE TO STAY!!! Antigua itself is a beautiful island but an expensive island too, lots of extra costs when dining 10% service + 15% island tax..... ie....non-alcoholic smoothie on the beach EC$15.00 - US$8.00+++!!!!! Almost glad to be home even if the weather sucks!!!

Pros: NOTHING.....it's not a Hotel!!! it is a timeshare faclitiy that books holidays,,,,,,

Cons: EVERYTHING!

Location: NEAR TO JOLLY HARBOUR.....OK restaurants pricey though! Supermarket with empty shelves quite often and Waitrose goods???? Wierd!

4/5 Good

Apartments by the beach

Apartments are large and large patio area. Great position, yards from the beach, excellent local supermarket, good value for money

Pros: Apartments are large and large patio area. Great position, yards from the beach, excellent local supermarket, good value for money

2/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Very disappointed

The worst air conditioning we've ever run into while traveling & it's quite warm as u can imagine . Water was cold , the all place smells bed . We lost cable every single day . We were very disappointed and never coming back to this place again .

3/5

Front desk person was very friendly but gave horrible directions and did not even know there was a donkey sanctuary on the island. Our room had a broken dryer which was not repaired the entire week we were there. Air conditioning was poor which left the bedding and clothes damp. Livingroom furniture was uncomfortable.

Pros: Proximity to the beach and the pool next door.

Cons: Property is run down- an influx of capital is needed. Get rid of the hospital wrist bands or get comfortable plastic bands for guests to wear.

Location: Carmichael's served excellent food and arranged a complimentary shuttle to and from our hotel.
