TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
just got back from GP resort Antigua, we have had the best holiday ever. after reading several bad reviews before we went I was getting very worried about my forth coming holiday, I don't know where... Read more these people went for their holiday, but im sure it wasn't to the same place that we have been for the last 14 days . Food was excellent , room was lovely, staff couldn't do enough for you, beach is great,sea is warm , booked a few trips with marvin on the beach he gave us a great day out , birds at breakfast not a problem, I will be recommending this resort to family and friends, thank you to all the staff who work very hard , one tip , take a large empty water bottle with you, saves having to buy one , and get it refilled from bar.

Read more Just returned from The Grand Pineapple.....Booked this resort as a late deal only 2 weeks before we travelled. Cheaper than a weeks holiday in Europe/Egypt for equivalent rated hotel. We arrived to find as previously reported the resort is a little dated. The rooms are clean staff work hard to keep them clean each day. We stayed in a room on the top floor of the 700's. This is high on the hillside with great views, but this comes at a price, the large number of steps to get up to our room. This did not deter us as we didn't go back to the room very often. We spent all day either by the pool or on the fantastic beach. Some days it was hard to get a sun bed by the pool but this is down to some selfish people placing towels by the pool and spending the day on the beach..... We spent our time sun bathing, swimming in the very warm sea, snorkelling and free use of the Hobbie sail boats. Just relaxing in the shadows of the palm trees listening to the waves breaking on the beach. The food is adequate with plenty of choice. Some of the food and drink did run out but every attempt was made to replenish or replace the items. I would like to give praise to the very hard working, professional and always cheerful staff. They all go out of their way to ensure you have a great time. A special mention for Roma waiting on in the Topaz restaurant and Monique working at the Surf bar. Both are an asset to the hotel. Don't be put off by negative reviews. Not what we expected but not disappointed. One couple have been visiting this resort for 22yrs and another this is there 4th stay this year. Great value for money. Return chilled and relaxed.....just what we wanted. Read less
Spent 7 days here on an all inclusive break. Returned home on Saturday and spent some time reflecting on holiday. Firstly, relaxing. The staff always smiling and cheerful. Restaurant was ok but... Read more buffet style. The grill nice but only open on certain nights. Beach ok, bit small and overcrowded. Not enough sun beds tho. Pool nice but water tended to get murky. Facilities in room very basic. This is not a 4/5 star resort Read less
