We have travelled quiet a bit throughout the Caribbean. The Villas at Sunset Lane was the most wonderful vacation that I have ever had. From arrival to departure, we were treated as if we were the only ones in the Villas. Such detail and attention is seen throughout the property. Villas at Sunset Lane is like no other all-inclusive. Every meal that you have is specially prepared (thank you Jackie, Josephine and Fume). There is no mass production here. There is not enough that can be said about Jackie, she is the most wonderful, genuine person I have every met, a real passion for teaching. Her professionalism shows throughout her staff. Ryan, Doreen, Karen and Josephine are always there to be sure that everything is to perfection and your liking. The beach is a short walk away and beautiful. We stayed in Room #1 and loved it. The sunsets were also beautiful. I cannot stop telling anyone that will listen what a wonderful place, I brought business cards back with me and they are all gone from my desk!

On arrival we were met by staff and manager given cold towels, and a drink, then escorted to our room, it really started the holiday off feeling special. Staff were excellent from the reception staff to the groundsmen (who maintained the lovely gardens) and always helpful, we were amazed they always remembered our names. We requested a fridge in the room to keep medication cold and that was provided with no problems. Hotel and location great. We were bed and breakfast. Breakfast was amazing with so much variety and choice. We ate in Palms restaurant, the evening meals were disappointing, the a'la carte menu was not alot of choice, the desserts were a buffet where we were informed to help yourself, no menu or price given for the desserts. There could have been better choice for desserts incorporating local tastes/produce/receipes. We hired a car for a week and found a couple of good restaurants. We went on a catamaran trip round the island also over to Barbuda and saw the frigate birds. Staff were always helpful, extremely polite and knowledgable, they gave advice on locations or things to visit. Before we left we had to get an ice pack re-frozen for taking medication home, it was placed in kitchen freezer and we collected it before departure. The holiday was a great experience and we feel the staff helped to make it special.

Nonsuch is fairly remote, but it seems most resorts in Antigua are a bit off the beaten path. The road into the resort is being repaved (cement!) now, and from the rate they were working on it, I expect it will be done by sometime in November/December. It was passable with our little low rental car as it is right now, but bumpy.
The rooms are as gorgeous as they look on the website, and the view is beautiful. We gave the room comfort a 5 we used the air con at night, but the way the rooms are made, if there is ANY breeze, you really don't need it during the day, which was really lovely.
We had the sailing package, and their sailing fleet and staff were fantastic - the boats were in perfect condition, with what looked like new sails on every boat we saw out (the resort was closed for September, and we went in mid-October), and everything in great order. We went out with a sailing instructor for the first few times to get familiar with the boat, learn the local reefs, and to even sail out to a snorkeling site. They were very accommodating. There are two sites for snorkeling that are reachable by boat from the resort, and the resort regularly will take you out to the sites twice a day, 3 days a week.
The beach is not much of a swimming beach (sea grass on the bottom), but is well shaded with palms, and there are 2 very nice infinity pools. We were there during tropical storm Gonzalo - and were very impressed by how quickly they cleaned up a big mess on the beach.
