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.

5 Star review based on the staff at the resort. Will, Johnathan, Delvin, iRoy (a.k.a vibe ambassador) and Tango particularly stood out. Great team and very helpful. All a credit to the hotel. Location very nice.

Couldn’t recommend this place less if I tried. Management is so poor and unhelpful, specifically Romane. After being improperly charged, finding hair in our to-go food and being offered zero apologies because we “didn’t take a photo” the place was a total mess. Only one restaurant is open during the week for all three meals, no juice bar, no gelato station that they claim on their website. Totally understand things changing with covid but they should update their website accordingly so guests know what to expect upon arrival instead of being bamboozled. This resort is also on the Atlantic side of the island so no pretty clear water like their pictures show and it’s about a $70 trip via taxi to get to the Caribbean side. Stay somewhere else and save yourself the headache Read less

Our family of 7 stayed in a 4 bedroom villa for one week. The resort is very modern and that is either a positive or not depending on whether you prefer modern or rather a Caribbean vibe. The villa was beautiful with top of the line appliances and furnishings and from two bedrooms, both masters... you can wake up to the best ocean view possible. The other two bedrooms are small without a view but acceptable for children. Our three adult sons slept in those and they had no complaints. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. Each of them deserves 5 stars. Our family rented a car, which I highly recommend since it is very easy to visit all of Antigua in a week. Our butler was also very helpful and always had a smile. I did not give 5 stars because we had issues during our stay. First, when I opened our dishwasher I almost threw up because it smelled like feces. Turns out this was easily fixable with two dishwasher runs ( it had not been run in a long time) but this horrible experience was easily fixable if management educated their staff to check these things prior to guest check-in. I called the front desk because I didn't have dishwasher pods or a sponge when we arrived. Also, our two master bedroom balconies lacked any seating. We noticed that the villa next to ours had a lot of seating. We called and this was fixed. Our villa should have been stocked with water, soft drinks, and beer but it wasn't until the third day when I looked at our contract that I realized this. I called and this was fixed but then we were charged at check-out. After I showed proof that this was included with the villa cost this issue was fixed.However, I had to find the proof online and then email it to the front desk. My complaint is that the manager should educate staff better to check out a villa before guests arrive so that they have a better experience. One night we had only cold water for showering after two people took a shower. This issue could be an Antigua issue so I didn't dwell on it. The included breakfast was delicious. On the day of our arrival, we ate dinner at the downstairs restaurant. We waited 2 hours and the food was average- mine was heavily salted. Sadly, it was the worst dinner we ate while on Antigua. After that night, we ate at other restaurants for the remainder of our stay. While we were at the resort, there were a lot of influencers there. I believe that many of the 5 star reviews come from them. I was told they stayed for free. We loved the beach staff and had a fun excursion to Prickly Island. We loved kayaking and paddle boarding. The resort does not have Hobie Cat Catamarans. Read less
