Hodges Bay

Antigua, Caribbean

The hotel

Lapping it up in the true ‘lap’ of luxury, Hodges Bay is a world away from the cookie cutter beach hotels that crop up around the Caribbean. Designed to be different, every element of this 9-acre estate is refined and relaxing. Its gloriously green gardens are matched by whiter-than-white sands, its crisp contemporary architecture cocoons upscale interiors, and its features are beyond high-end. There are two swimming pools — including an adult-only infinity pool overlooking the bay, surrounded by plush sun-loungers and poolside cabanas, the ultimate way to catch some Caribbean rays and relax in an adult-only oasis. Not forgetting the beach and pool Ambassador Service of course, with dedicated staff on hand to tend to your every whim. Dining here is a true delight with a choice of three restaurants including the Caribbean’s first signature restaurant by world-renowned celebrity chef Edward Lee. Plus there are five inviting bars to try including a high-end rum bar with a dedicated sommelier, guaranteed to serve a true taste of Antigua.

I have traveled to over 20 Caribbean resorts over the years, but Hodges Bay Resort is one in a million. The amenities, the design, the layout are all breath taking. The beach is absolutely stunning. The infinity pools are my absolute favourite at the Hodges Bay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and come back myself. The food and drinks were amazing, a little pricey, but you definitely get your money’s worth. The staff are so friendly, everyday they would greet my family and I, and ensured us our happiness. These were some of my favourite photos of the beautiful resort! Read less

My family stayed at Hodges Bay, which was an enormous waste of money; sentiment shared by other guests. This hotel markets itself as luxury and charges $30,000+ for a week. Issues started from outset. The hotel tells guests to pay extra for expedited service through the airport; a complete waste as the expeditor disappeared when we went through immigration! The hotel forgot our advance request for car. We had to take a taxi (6 people + luggage)! We had a 4 bed villa where a room had no A/C, none of the baths had shampoo, soap... Housekeeping never re-stocked anything and I called daily for water, toilet paper, tissue... The beach attendant refused to move chairs, refused to give the # of towels I needed (he pushed that I take 4 towels when there were 6 of us). Food issues occurred daily: we order pasta with Alfredo + broccoli; we get plain pasta. We order beef taco; we get chicken. We order Hawaiian pizza; we get no pineapple on it... It was so bad that I tried to get an earlier flight to cut the trip short. I was told management would meet us. They availed themselves on the 5th day of our 7 day trip. Tony and Jeff had superficial apologies - accepting full responsibility, but doing NOTHING to make me whole. Their inaction is disingenuous and even fraudulent. If your business model is to mislead customers and walk away fault free, that is a scam. Read less

Recently me and my friends went to a party hosted by Hodges bay resort and spa. That party was just starting to approach a good level of fun where people were dancing and getting loose. When all the sudden a shoving fight began between two dude and thats when it went down hill. Overall the situation was not handled well where two guys in politics shirt went and pulled the two adults apart while strangling and holding the guys with the police men's hands around their the civilians necks. Which was overall not necessarily needed but i mean it was solved and the "shovers" left. But 10 minutes later the music was shut off and police men started spraying PEPPER SPRAY into the crowd with just the intent to end the party. There was no fights, no arguments, and no need to do that but they did anyway. The sad thing is they were hired by this resort to watch over. I personally spent the rest of my night comforting my crying girlfriend while she suffered the consequences of breathing in the fumes. Definitely not a recommended place to go! Read less

We stayed for 3 nights in early December prior to joining a cruise and were delighted to find we had a lovely spacious room with ocean views. Although overlooking the family pool area, it was generally quiet as the hotel was not fully booked. The room was modern, spacious and had good facilities. Lovely comfy bed, super bed linen and blackout curtains which did the job of darkening the room superbly. It was lovely to sit under the open air, covered area at the beach front for breakfast and the choice of food was good. We tried the tapas at the White sails bar but the choice is limited. There was entertainment provided by a super little band but it was such a shame there were so few people who bothered to visit and at one point there was only us in the audience! The dinner menu was quite limited for choice. Staff were happy, enthusiastic and extremely helpful. Would definitely choose to go again at a quiet time as to be honest I think the hotel amenities would feel crowded if the hotel was fully booked. Read less

We had a wonderful day on the beach here, we were alone most of the day. The sand and sea are spectacular. We went for lunch at the beachside restaurant. This was very average and pricey. The shrimps with mango salad came with no mango, but oranges instead. It was basically 5 smallish shrimps in a sweet chili sauce, with some lettuce and fresh oranage. I was not told there was no mango, although the waitress had informed us that there was no celery for the humous if we had oredered it. My wife had cheese and tomoato pizza, it was average too, with a lot of tomato paste. The cost with 2 soft drinks was around 85 US dollars, not cheap! The resort looked great, but we only were there for one day. Read less
