The suites at Siboney Beach Club Antigua are pleasant and spacious, with huge, comfortable beds. The kitchenettes are well appointed, and the bathrooms have nice touches, like large bottles of shampoo, liquid soap, shower gel, bug spray, etc. The staff is welcoming and always ready to help, and the grounds are beautiful – the perfect ingredients for Antigua vacations.
The beach is small, but it’s always kept clean. There’s ample beach activity if you want it: sailing, diving, snorkeling and of course, long walks. There is no adequate public transport so if you want to travel around the rest of the island you’ll need an Antigua rental car or make a deal with one of the many taxi drivers.
If you want a quiet, romantic, personal holiday, you’ll get all that at Siboney Beach Club Antigua with bonuses that are not advertised in your Antigua packages brochure. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay a memorable one, and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. It’s really nice to stay in a hotel where the owner has a handle on everything, and is ever-present instead of some faceless manager.
There’s an excellent restaurant right next to the hotel called Coconut Grove with superb, though pricey, food. Coconut Grove is worth a visit, though – the Caribbean Sea laps so close to it that it’s not unusual for the water to occasionally wash right into the dining room. The restaurant draws a steady stream of guests from the Siboney Beach Club Antigua.
According to Caribbean Hideaways Magazine, “There’s nothing fancy about Siboney, [Beach Club Antigua], but it’s the sort of place that appeals to English lords and incognito celebrities who yearn for seclusion and comfort, with a friendly and competent staff…”
As the naturalist Charles Darwin once said, “How pleasant it would be, to pass one’s life in such quiet abode.”
