All the 5-star luxury resorts are scattered round the beaches of Antigua, so there is very little in or near downtown St John's. This is a quiet little oasis, tucked away on a quiet road 1 km from the heart of downtown. Not flash, not fancy, but perfectly adequate, friendly people, and very good value. If you are touring the island, you'd need to hire a car, probably with a driver. But for a couple of nights you can get by with the friendly/reasonable local taxis, who'll zip you into town for dinner, once the cruise ships have departed, and the locals will be grateful for a bit of evening custom.

Connie’s Comfort Suites was a great find at a great price... would definitely stay here again! A great base to explore the island. Connie’s has fantastically friendly people that make you feel at home and everything I needed including comfortable bed, kitchen area (fridge/freezer, oven/hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, well stocked with utensils, plates, cutlery, etc), dining table/chairs, sofa, TV and good WiFi (video calls). They also offer laundry service. Little shop next door for basics and big supermarket/pharmacy at Wood’s Mall in 10min walk. Food options Toy toys &KFC within 5min walk and st John’s center in 20min. I used QuikServe app (similar to Uber eats) to have food delivered to the room ! They also have rental cars which brings closest beach within 5min drive. Great find and feel that I’ve seen the local side of Antigua that you wouldn’t get at an all-inclusive beach front resort. Tip: some of the big resorts offer day passes if you want to lounge by a pool for a day while in Antigua.

First thought upon entering the building, "we can't stay here". The lobby was dark and uninviting with people milling about chatting up the staff. The clerk was friendly but had difficulty finding our reservation then wanted to put us in a City View room when a Harbor View room had been requested and confirmed prior to arrival. Once resolved, we were escorted down a short street to another building. It felt a bit uneasy climbing the poorly lit exterior stairwell. The room was much larger than expected and the bed was in the loft which definitely was not expected. The furniture, kitchen appliances, cookware, dishes etc. need updating/replacing. The holder for the shower spray was missing. Stairs to the loft were uneven and rickety and the door/window in the loft which opens to a walkway, in our expectation, was not secure. My big complaint, even with the Do Not Distrub Sign affixed to the door, telling housekeeping and reporting to management we did not want service it was evident on 3 of the 5 days we stayed that someone entered the room. That being said, the view was amazing! Hotel is located in town at Heritage Quay adjacent Redcliffe Quay. From the verandah, we could watch the cruise ships come in and leave port, the crowds around the Duty Free Shops and just relax and watch the sunset in the evening. Overall this hotel is doable and we would consider staying here again. With updating and maintenance this could be 3+ Stars and worthy of recommending to others.

No reception. By this I don’t mean just no WiFi in the rooms (which is true) but also no front office reception to help you check in. The place was beautiful but unfortunately the check in process freaked me out so much that it overshadowed the potential of this place. I booked this place online as a last minute reservation when I got an unexpected overnight here due to flight delays. It was late and the only place with availability near the airport was this place. They said in the hotels.com reservation to confirm with the property to check in since there was no front office to help you. The email provided only two phone numbers both of which I could not call with my international phone. I used the airport phone to call and multiple times went straight to voicemail. I left urgent message to call back or email with no response on how to check in. No lock box code, no directions where the key would be, no notification if there would be someone there or if I would be able to even get in at all after paying for a taxi there so late at night. I took my chances and paid $20 for a taxi there and a man with no shirt on greeted me with the key. I shared my relief that someone that worked there was there to greet me but to my horror the man said he was just a guest that was given my cottage key. Who is this man? Why does a GUEST have my key? I’m a single woman traveling alone and honestly it freaked me out to know a stranger that was a random guest at the hotel was given a key to my apartment. When I asked why he had a key he stated the owner had to go somewhere. I’m happy I got in but for real?! The owner is going to just gave this random guest that doesn’t work there access to the place I would be staying at ALONE?! This made me very uncomfortable. I’m happy that at least I got in the cottage but the check in procedure needs too be a little more responsible and considerate. At least they should answer the phone or give check in instructions in the email for late night arrivals.

It was my first time to Antigua. Came to a friends wedding. I booked on bookings.com and picked the most affordable place as I was only going to be staying for a short time. Well I was surprised with Antigua - in many ways. First, the people are super friendly, easy going, and laid back. Our host, Prince, was awesome. He was very communicative before I arrived, giving me info and reminders of the trip. He's the highlight of our stay (second to our wedding reception). 40xCD per trip to and from airport. Originally I was going to take a taxi but when I was at customs, the agent asked me for an address. I couldn't find it online or anywhere in the info Prince sent me. The agent ended up calling Prince to pick us up as he was afraid we'd get lost. Oddly, I still can't find an address for his guesthouse! Second, the guest house is super clean and tidy. Prince and his daughter look after the place and take a lot of pride on comfort of his guests. Don't expect a typical N. American BnB. This is Antigua after all so set your expectations accordingly. The guest house consists of two rooms, both with king bed. The house itself is small (of course compared to N. American). Fully Air conditioned strong WiFi, small fridge and microwave in the room, shared bathroom, shared kitchen. There is a small veranda that only one person can use at a time, but we never had any issue even with the other guest staying. TV has 'cable' but it didn't work during the day. If you like hot showers, take it at night and expect it to be a short one! The guesthouse is not in the centre city. It's about a 15 min walk through a residential area. It's safe but just be warned it might seem your walking through a bad area of town. Last, it's pretty noisy. Late at night there is load music and the last morning a neighbour decided to have a live jam session! Music was good though. Third, as a country that relies heavily on tourism, I was surprised to see the area closest to the cruise ship ports to be so .... Run down. Streets were pretty nasty in terms of dirt and trash (a bit sad to see this but not different than a big metro city anywhere in the world), buildings are old, run down, lots of street vendors and pan handlerings. Since I did come and attend a wedding, the venue was on a private resort - Sheer Rock, Coco Bay. Wow! Stark contrast to the main city. Prince told us it's a swanky place but there are even more swanky resorts on this beautiful island. Price of food etc is pretty on par to N.America. Most things are imported so it makes sense. I'm not sure converting to xcd makes a huge difference. Overall, if your on a budget or want a different experience but also a great host, come here!

Our family of 3 spent a night here in late December. Our week long trip was extended one overnight and our VRBO condo wasn't available. I booked a room here at the last minute. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was healthy and delicious. The owner treated us with kindness and was very accommodating. We could not have had a better experience. Our experience was NOTHING like the two reviews in Jan. 2019. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We booked this directly with the hotel even though booking.com said the restaurant was currently closed. To our surprise the restaurant was not only open but it was absolutely fantastic, with breakfast included. The hotel itself is tucked slightly back from the beach (a few metres) but the Salt Plage restaurant is right on the beach and has a great atmosphere. The small section of beach outside the hotel is sheltered and is great for kids. There are lots of sun loungers and staff are really helpful. Special mention to Gina (hope spelling is correct) who was incredibly friendly and helpful. If we go back to Antigua we will go back here for sure. Tip: try the ‘traditional’ rum punch!

It was so enjoyable to stay here. Tisiamo and his family make you feel so welcome. Fresh coffee every morning. There is a shop in the office that has everything you need. The apartments are lovely. Spotlessly clean. Has everthing you require. The veiws are spectacular. The beach is literally 2 minutes away with loungers for all. Also loungers in the gardens of Northshore Aparthotel. It was a fantastic experience staying here. I would not hesitate to recommend it. 5 stars all the way from me I hope you get to stay there. Its wonderful

We just returned from an awesome two week trip to Antigua. We were very happy we chose Hodges Bay. The whole family (two fourteen year olds boys and one 10 year old boy) loved the resort and in particular how great the staff were. We rented a three bedroom on the second floor which had an amazing view. My guess is all the larger units have great views. Very close to the Ocean. Clearly, travelling right now is different because of Covid. This was our first trip since the start of the pandemic. I felt like the hotel did a good job related to making us feel safe and like they took it seriously. Restaurants onsite were very good. We mostly ate at White Sands for breakfast and about half our lunches. The dinners we did have were good. Because we were there for a longer time and like to go out we went out for many dinners. Jackie-O, Sheer Rocks and Catherine’s on the beach were the favs of the longer distance options. Jackie-O was the best (go for sunset) but all three really great. Closer Bistro and Stellas as well as the Cove are good options. We had a rental car but for driving at night used Trevor who was alway prompt on getting us from the resort and collecting us. He’s certainly who to ask for for all taxi needs. Big white van. For activities the hotel lets you use all the water sports and will drive you to the Prickly Pear Island for no extra charge. I liked that none of this cost more given you are paying for your room already. The guys on the beach were amazing and would come up with ideas. Off resort the activities we liked were the swimming with stringrays, a wavy day at half moon beach and Kitesurfing lesson just down the way from Kitesurf Antigua. Clearly having all boys influences our choice of activities. My youngest went horseback riding and really liked it too. Also - a highlight was renting Barefoot to take us for a cruise around Antigua one day. It was a good value for a 32ft twin engine boat. We had planned Barbuda but the seas were too rough. I think it was just as fun around the island. Staff. All amazing. Katharina was the person that helped with our booking and was amazingly prompt and very nice. The four Butlers were so great. Always a smile and friendly hello. Very helpful with anything we needed. Made us all feel like we were on a luxury vacation. I did feel like all the staff from gardeners to servers liked working at Hodges Bay. Always friendly professional and acted liked one big team. Well done Hodges Bay.

We are just finishing a 10 day holiday and have loved every minute of our stay. The top sea view suite was perfect, large welcoming room with spacious bathroom and balcony with table and chairs, loungers and even a hammock to swing in the breeze. The view across the harbour was amazing, especially at night when all the yachts were lit up. WIFI took time to get connected but then worked faultlessly allowing us to look up the owners of the fabulous yachts moored nearby. The kitchen was stocked with all the equipment needed to make the odd breakfast or lunch meal and the fridge even had a freezer for the ice. The room was attended to daily and spotlessly clean, the gardens beautiful, colourful and everyone around very polite and accommodating. We have loved our stay here and would certainly book again. The noise / music from the harbour can at times be intrusive however this is outside the resort's control.

This may be a long review but I try and cover the good and the bad of a holiday so it helps other travellers. I am an avid user of Tripadvisor and find the reviews and tips very useful. My husband and I visited Cocobay for 10 days in March this year. This was a once in a lifetime holiday for us so we had upgraded to a Premium waterfront cottage with pool. NOTE - we booked via Virgin and not direct with the hotel. Once arrived at the hotel (and I use the term hotel loosely as it is a resort with 65 individual wooden cottages, a reception area, two pools and two bars and an open air restaurant, so no large building resembling a hotel!) My husband and I were checked in quickly and greeted to a rum punch and shown to our cottage. COTTAGE - as mentioned, we had a premium water front with pool (Loblolly Cay) The view was to die for. The cottage consisted of one room and a bathroom. There was a large bed with mosquito net (the comfiest bed we have ever had and we slept well all the time we were there), an area with hanging rail for clothes, safe, mini fridge with Nespresso machine, dresser with space for clothes and a good sized bathroom with his and her sinks, toilet and large shower. Doors and windows to the bathroom can be removed to make it feel like you are showering outdoors. Lighting could be better but I always take a small mirror anyway. The ceiling fan and AC worked a treat to combat the 30 degree heat. There are also blackout curtains in the room so you have complete darkness at night. Out on the balcony/veranda we had two sunloungers with cushions on a large decking area, two other comfy chairs, a hammock and an outdoor bath, not forgetting the plunge pool. Yes, the pool was quite cold but I used it daily to cool off after a day on the beach. It only got sun on it until about midday but it served its purpose! I also used the bath a few times so remember take some bubble bath! Some toiletries were provided aswell as some soft drinks (water, coke, tonic water and ginger beer) and two beers in the fridge. It was replenished daily but not with any other alcohol. We did have a complimentary bottle of Antigua Rum in our room on arrival aswell as a bottle of Bubbly so that did us for the week too! RESORT - As mentioned it is a small resort with a very laid back feel. The view from reception was the best view on the resort and if you can catch a clear night sunset from the restaurant bar, you will be blessed. All the staff we encountered were friendly, from housekeepers, gardeners and reception staff to the people who served you daily in the restaurant, bars or on the beach. The gardens are beautifully kept and you are in awe of all the different colours of the flowers and trees. Pool towels are supposed to be provided daily and left in your room but a hint is to keep your old pool towels from the previous day (there is a drop off point for old towels) until you know that you have new ones as a few days they ran out of pool towels.
