Accommodations Map

Location plays an important role when considering accommodations on the island. If you don't mind crowds, the northwest part of Antigua would be the ideal place to stay. Breath-taking beaches and extravagant hotels and resorts can be found on this part of the island.

St. Johns is the largest city on the island, and business travelers will often choose a hotel in the St. Johns area because it is closest to the country's business sector, and the hotels in the area cater to this type of traveler.

Just north of St. Johns, on the northwest tip of Antigua is Dickenson Bay, where the watersports enthusiasts will find the best lodgings options for them. Many of the hotels in this area are situated right along the shore, and include watersports equipment in their room price.

Vacationers who are interested in history will find many historic sites and landmarks within easy reach when they stay in English Harbour, while Jolly Harbour is a great locale for those who want to be near a good number of restaurants and shopping centers. There are a variety of lodging options in this area, from hotels to villas.

Take caution when you book your stay through an on-line travel service. Often times, in order to get the traveler's attention, hotels will list themselves as being located in a large city, when in fact they are several miles away from said location. Confirm the location of the hotels you are considering by visiting their official web site, or calling the hotel itself.
