Lovely hotel and great staff, was perfect for my daughter and I. Rooms were beautiful and pool was perfect addition. Food was good quality and plenty of it including local dishes. Hired a car and driving was easy and quiet. Certainly felt a relaxing holiday and came home refreshed.

A week at the Escape at Nonsuch Bay was one of the best holidays we’ve ever had - my Husband and I travelled with my Sister and Brother in Law to celebrate our Wedding Anniversaries. We met some wonderful people from the USA and UK and we’re still laughing from sharing their company now. The Nonsuch Escape is a tucked away hidden gem with only 40 adult only rooms, one bar, one restaurant and one pool. Gorgeous views and the most attentive staff you could wish for. The ambiance is relaxed, friendly and fun. The rooms each with a plunge pool, are probably the most private and quiet we’ve ever stayed - immaculately clean, extremely comfortable beds and pillows. Well equipped with lots of space and storage. Each room also has a beautiful outlook, either over the estuary or the well groomed gardens. The bar is well stocked with international drinks and the bartenders make the most amazing cocktails from scratch, none of those horrid pre-mixed cocktail syrups. My favourite being the breakfast Mimosa made by Rinaldo and Wane’s Rum Punch and Coconut Mojito are amazing🍹 The restaurant food is delicious. A new fresh menu every day for breakfast, lunch and diner created by Randolph the Head Chef, then cooked to order and served to your table, always with a smile and a cheery manner. Too many dishes to highlight but the Goat Water is incredible. The pool area is comfortable with plenty of sun beds etc. The reception area also provides a small quiet area. The hotel runs a regular shuttle bus to the little beach where there’s a beach bar serving drinks, cocktails and snacks - you can walk to the beach but not too enjoyable in the heat. There’s regular evening entertainment, from the most incredible soft jazz singer/pianist, the immensely talented female vocalist to the steel drum orchestra and the wonderful Cacey DJ on party / BBQ night There’s plenty of trips on offer to visit the island - we chose a sunset trip to Shirley Heights and a boat trip to Green Island. Both really enjoyable and lots of fun. The highlight of The Nonsuch Escape is the staff - they are not only assets to the hotel, they are ambassadors for Antigua. They work entirely as a team and each and every person is friendly and would do everything they could to make our holiday enjoyable and unforgettable from the grounds, cleaning, maintenance, kitchen, restaurant, bar, reception and management team A Huge Thank you to you all Read less

Absolutely fantastic experience. From meeting Maya & reception team on arrival, bar staff, restaurant team, maintenance team, garden & house keeping, management every member of the Nonsuch staff are all part of a fantastic team that go above & beyond to ensure your trip meets all your expectations. Every meal has a perfect selection of dishes cooked to order, selections can be altered with great ease as you enjoy fantastic drinks service as you relax & enjoy the wonderful views. Karen the restaurant manager assisted by Maxine, Nish, Mr Gore, effortlessly attend to your every breakfast-lunch-dinner requirement which is perfectly created & presented by chef Randolph & his amazing team. Entertainment from steel band, karaoke, Antiguas own Frank Sinatra crooner, KC the DJ & music quiz master as well as being part of the great bar team alongside Charles & Wane who is a awesome but deadly cocktail wizard. Renaldo for his beach bar vibes & attentive service. Rooms are immaculate, tended daily by invisible house keeping team who refresh your room & wonderful plunge pool area. Trips to scenic Green island & party time with shunning sunsets @ Shirley Heights complimented are week of chilling & relaxing in the boutique style complex. During our recent visit England football team where involved in Euros quarter & semi finals, on discovering nearest general bar/football viewing would be $80 return trip, we enquired if the hotel would be able to link a Tv up for a number of English guests to participate in a few beers & support our national team, Celvin from maintenance went above & beyond, after involvement from Makita hotel manager, a TV was set up on bracket in poolside bar area, Celvin then insured tv signal was maintained throughout the matches. As for customer participation the award goes to Troure the hotel porter, after great banter & Tv pundit skills, a friendly wager was agreed $ versus Troure to take a dip in the pool. Great laughter & holiday video moments created by his 9/10 dives into the pool to great amusement of guests & staff to create a very unique experience throughout our wonderful Nonsuch bay stay. Having read couple of previous reviews I find it very difficult to understand any negatives reviews are justified of an amazing hotel filled with kind, thoughtful, attentive staff who’s team ethos is to make your stay truly memorable & fantastic.

Overall, The combination of poor food quality, lack of proper orientation, inadequate room maintenance, and unaccommodating service has left me feeling very dissatisfied with my stay. Quite disappointing being that it holds such potential.

From the minute my husband and I landed in Antigua, we were fortunate enough to meet and interact with the most incredible people who made our honeymoon stay absolutely perfect! Our driver JT was so patient and accommodating, offering great insight on where to go and what to do while in Antigua. The hotel concierge attendants Nequoya, Maya and Alani, Mr. Gore and the entire restaurant staff members, Captain Desmond and the boat crew from Antigua Adventures Extreme, our amazing masseuse Rosie and Lucy, and not to forget the room service and cleaning attendants were all so kind, helpful and attentive during our entire stay. The exceptional service and friendly hospitality from everyone made our stay so memorable and enjoyable, and we couldn't have had a better experience. From the amazing food, the property environment, the friendly staff, the entertainment and the options for activities on and off property - we had the most amazing time and we cannot wait to visit again! Really made our honeymoon extremely memorable. Read less
