I do not need to say much - The Escape at Nonsuch Bay Antigua is fantastic. Hard to improve. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. I found it to offer very good value compared to other properties in Antigua. The trip to Green Island is a must, the canoe was great to justify another meal, the food was great. I can highly recommend.

Our first trip to the Caribbean for some years was because of cancelled trips elsewhere.

Our first trip to the Caribbean for some years was because of cancelled trips elsewhere. What a stroke of luck for us, if you want big shiny corporate hotels, as we have in the past, then the Escape is not for you. If you want a relaxed, unhurried holiday with fantastic people to look after you The Escape is for you. Having stayed in large hotels in various parts of the world where you are a number and not a person then this is completely opposite. We felt part of the furniture very quickly and the small number of rooms means that you get to know both staff and guest very quickly. There are too many to remember all the lovely people who looked after us but thanks to Leston, Maxine, Naisha, Michael, Phonsia, Kerin and Karl to name. It a few. You made our stay very special. We had a Bay View room and watched the sun hit the hills opposite every morning with the first coffee of the day. It was perfect. A short walk to the resort centre and beach was rewarded with a cocktail at the beach bar particularly after that hill, it was. Rey welcome, Thanks Leston, or for food freshly cooked for you at the restaurant, no buffet here. No issues either with dietary needs as variations of the menu were always catered for. The beach is perhaps not as Caribbean as those in other parts of the Island but it isn’t busy and if you want to go to another there is no shortage nearby. Antigua is a beautiful Island and we didn’t see enough of it as relaxation was the aim of our holiday, next time we will see more with the Escape as our chosen base. Read less

We stayed at The Escape for 2 weeks for our honeymoon. I can not praise this place and their staff enough! We truly felt looked after throughout our entire stay. The reception staff were truly helpful with every question we had and always willing to give recommendations. super friendly! The restaurant staff were so professional, we are grateful for their services during breakfast lunch, snacks, drinks and dinner, the food and drink were AMAZING, thank you chefs! (p.s, ask for a 'painkiller', a tasty version of a Pina Colada!). We want to thank ALL members of staff for their hospitality, we can not fault it. We would 100% stay at The Escape again! Some of the activities we recommend: Beach BBQ on Wednesday evenings. Zip Lining 268buggies Snorkeling on green island Darkwood beach HIGHLY RECOMMEND hiring a car as you are given so much more freedom to explore this beautiful island. Read less
