This was our second time visiting nonsuch. It us a small resort but perfect for a family holiday in the sun with beach and a few activities to waste away the time. The staff are really welcoming and make all the difference. The food was great too. Will be looking forward to returning for another beach holiday in future.

My family and I are very keen travellers, having been to many places such as Bali, Thailand, Canada, Singapore etc. but out of all the places, this was definitely our favourite, and the hotel made it even better. This amazing hotel offers so many fun opportunities for the kids, and peace and tranquility for the adults. The pools are all stunning, and the beach view is beautiful. My personal favourite part of the holiday was the watersports. The staff were all so kind, especially when teaching the children how to sail. It was clear that everyone loved it. So many watersports were included and lessons for those aswell. As our trip was over October half-term, it was halloween back at home. We thought we were missing out, but on the night of halloween, sweets were brought over to our table to give to the children, who came round the restaurant trick-or-treating. They made amazing effort to make it fun for the children, including parties. This was an amazing holiday, and definitely recommend for families. (Most rooms you have to walk up a big hill, so if you have young or elderly people, it would probably be best to ask for a room close to reception.) Read less

We have just arrived back from a 10 night stay at nonsuch bay resort. We travelled with our 5 month son. When we arrived, we were given room 501. However, as this room was u bit of a walk uphill and then down some stairs, we didn’t feel it was practical with our buggy so reception kindly offered us room 702, which was much better for us. The rooms are so spacious - it is so great to have a separate bedroom and living room. We did however feel that they need to be updated - especially the bathrooms. We had a mouldy shower head so the water didn’t come through with much power or heat. Maintenance replaced this for us and it was much better. It is also so handy to have a washing machine as the clothes dry so quickly in the sun. My husband and I are both vegetarians and we have to say, we had the best food we have ever had on holiday. Breakfast was varied with porridge, eggs, fruit, cereal etc. For lunch there was a buffet. If we didn’t feel there was enough veggie food, the kitchen staff would always make us something. Dinner was a la carte and there was always a delicious veggie option. The staff were so accommodating of our requests! Thank you to Lloyd, Stephen, Jerry and all the chefs and kitchen staff for looking after us. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Everyone was so helpful and friendly - no request was too big and you always received service with a smile! They were all so great with our little one and we will miss them a lot! Thank you to everyone who looked after us including Petrina, Schena, Gavisha, Karen and Akila. We didn’t realise that we could send our 5 month old baby to the kids club until about the 8th day. We sent him for about an hour on two separate days. Esther was amazing with our son and he was so comfortable with her. I just wish we had known about this earlier :) All in all we had an amazing, unforgettable holiday to Antigua. Thank you to everyone at Nonsuch Bay for such a wonderful experience. We will miss you all and can’t wait to visit again. Read less

Just back from two weeks went with great friends and family for our anniversary. The accommodation was fabulous, a three bedroom apartment with great views. Bay was lovely and the whole place was very relaxing and quiet. Unfortunately the housekeeping was awful, apartment never properly cleaned, showers not cleaned in the entire visit, often had to phone down to reception for clean towels.We had booked all inclusive and this was certainly not like any all inclusive hotel I have ever been to before. The beach bar was a picnic table with a cool box and a couple of bottles of spirits. Only one other bar which was tiny could only fit about 10 people in at any one time. No toilets around the resort so had to go back to your room or to reception. Very hilly so not suitable for anyone elderly or with difficulty getting around. A few members of staff very good Shena, front of house, Gavi in restaurant and Lloyd on omelette station. Other than that quite unhelpful and sometimes rude, one in particular refusing to serve the boys a coke and lemonade even after us speaking to the manager and her assuring us that at 15 there was no problem with them being served soft drinks. Having been going to the Caribbean for over 20 years I have to say this was disappointing for a resort described as luxury. Would not go back as even though accommodation was lovely there were too many negatives overall. Read less

I recently stayed for a week in a two-bed apartment for a week with three friends. The accommodation, was exceptionally spacious, well equipped and comfortable, with a colossal balcony that benefited from a gentle breeze blowing in off the bay. If you are looking for loud music and non-stop activity, Nonsuch is not the place for you. But if you want to relax in the sunshine or lie in the shade of the palm trees on the beach while hearing birdsong, then this certainly is the place for you. There is also sailing, and kayaks available to use, although we were too lazy for that. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, with a special mention for Maxine, Michelle and Louvena. The a la carte dinner was delicious every night, with plenty of choice - and we particularly enjoyed our breakfasts too. This is not a big, buzzy glitzy hotel - but it is a beautiful jewel where you can achieve Olympic standards of relaxation in great comfort while being well looked after. Half Moon Bay is very close by and well worth a visit, if you like a wild and beautiful beach and an extremely welcoming beach bar. Read less
