Happy 2016 friends!! This week has been so busy… doctor's appointments, studying for my board exam, taking down Christmas decorations, etc. that I am just now getting around to re-capping our Antigua trip. It was SO amazing, I did not want to come home!
We stayed at Sandals Antigua and were very pleased with our experience. The staff were incredible… super friendly, helpful, and genuinely interested in making sure we were having a great time. Our room was always very clean and stocked with everything we needed. Warning… photo dump below.
Night #1 we were super tired from traveling all day but we managed to shower and head a sushi restaurant for dinner. We are sushi snobs so I will admit that it wasn't nearly as good as our favorite sushi restaurant back home but it was decent.
Our first full day was gorgeous. Breakfast every morning with this view? Yes please. We would grab chairs on the beach for the morning and move to the pool for the afternoons. Because the pool had a swim up bar so basically we didn't move from those seats all day every day #notsorry
There was a dock with couches on it that you could sit and watch sunset. Late afternoon we would grab a drink, champs for me and rum for him, and watch sunset. My favorite part of the day hands down.
Night #2 we were a little burnt [sorry mom] after a few too many drinks are the swim up bar. We enjoyed a yummy Italian dinner with the best ever molten chocolate cake for dessert.
The ocean in Antigua is gorgeous, crystal clear blue. And so cold!! We did a lot of paddle boarding which was super fun because it was so calm.
Night #3 we went to the pub restaurant and claimed seats in front of the t.v. to watch our Tarheels take on Baylor in their bowl game. Sadly we couldn't come through with a win but it was still fun to cheer for our team.
Check back next week for part 2 of our Antigua trip recap!
Linking up with Annie today!
