Just a quick trip report on our first Antigua trip.
Made the almighty mistake of thinking I'd beat the M25 traffic travelling down from Lincolnshire to Gatwick at 4am, only to find the A1 was closed, sat nav sending us via M1 which I am not the biggest fan of at the best of times. Rather than follow instructions, carried on to trhe A1 and diversion around the sticks (after all I'd pre-paid the dart crossing charge ) and ended up M25 gridlock. In reality this was only eating into clubhouse time, instead of arriving at 7am, arrived at about 8.15, so, to ensure her indoors could book in a treatment at the spa, parked at short term and dropped the bags off so she could merrily head to the clubhouse while I went back out to park the car long term.
Check in was a breeze and the clubhouse team were fantastic, I just managed a full breakfast but no time to hit the redheads..
Straight on the plane when called and settled in quickly (154 pax, premium economy looked full and UC only had 2 spare seats so i assume plenty of space at the back)
Had the steak, which was a little tough, and watched a couple of movies, found the `mcdonalds' movie very interesting, and then had a nap the rest of the way. The crew where fine but not as pro-active as on our last trip to San Francisco and Florida, maybe my expectations are too high. The bar was full all flight, with plenty of laughs coming from that direction too.
There was a bit of a wait at immigration but through just in time to catch the bags on their first lap of the belt, the taxi was just a few minutes then on to Coco Bay.
We've been here a week now and really like Coco Bay, great staff, choice of pools and beach, a total chill out zone. Thanks to all who helped with recommendations for Antigua earlier in the year.
Anyway, one more week in the sun to go, back to the pool, cheers all
