One of the most family-friendly BVI resorts, the Verandah sits on a calm, reef-sheltered bay on Antigua’s northeast coast. All 200 of the property’s guest units are spacious (700 square feet) junior suites, with kitchenettes and private verandas.

Popular with older guests, this quiet, 31-room hotel is located on the south coast’s renowned Worthing Beach, just half a mile from the bustling St. Lawrence Gap neighborhood. Inside, the lobby is decorated with island landscapes and wicker furniture topped with colorful pillows.
