Wonderful.Also good for trips to Half Moon , sitesPosted May 2, 2017
Pros: Everything. Wonderful location. Great beach with a good breeze to keep you cool. Brilliant boat trips to Green Island to see fish. Great room , staff.
Cons: Nothing, never before felt as well looked after. Great for tropical fish at Green Island, swimming at Half moon beach and site-seeing Nelson's place.
Location: Several beaches within a short drive. Half Moon is the nearest and best, even a few fish round the rocks. The Nelson's Harbour museum is worth while.
Everyone looks at the best and worst reviews so let us deal with the points from the bad reviews; "There is only a dirt road to the property". Not so, the last few miles were paved with concrete last year, meaning that there is now a good ,wide fast road with mongooses and humming birds. "The Hotel is Miles from anywhere- a huge taxi ride just to get there". The resort is on the West coast , a 40 minute drive from the airport. You can get a taxi and just stay at the resort or rent a car (Avis lines a bit slow). This will allow you to sea more of the beaches and sites. Some people rent a car and still chill out at the resort anyway. "Bad service". The opposite is true. The service is wonderful; breakfast and dinner ladies at 7 or 8 stars or more !, room impeccably tidy. All just wonderful. "Not all inclusive". What is this person talking about? We stayed almost a week and our final bill was ....$6 for washing powder from the shop. It included all meals and our soft drinks from the bar. We could not get near to eating the three meals included with the very reasonable cost. We never had lunch. The very full breakfast buffet had changes every day and the dinner menu changes every two days with a barbecue on Wednesday. Restaurant (of course) open every day. "Not clean"..."Bird droppings in the restaurant". See above- room kept 100% clean.The restaurant is open air and has yellow birds, black birds, finches and humming birds coming through. Wonderful. No mess seen.

Nonsuch bayPosted Apr 23, 2017
Pros: Everything was great
Cons: Pool warmers, water was quite cold
Location: Beach front location, Antigua is a small island so everything is nearby.
Our trip to nonsuch bay was great, from the moment we got picked up from the airport to when we were drop off. Staff is great and make you feel comfortable and welcome. The room was huge, clean, and very well equipped. The beach was nice, and the pools had a nice view of the bay (both pools were cold though). We took a trip to green island for snorkeling and relaxing, it was great, but I recomend bringing some umbrella/parasol for a shade. The food was great with a nice variety of meal items. I personally LOVED the mojitos!

LimitationsPosted Apr 21, 2017
Nonsuch Resort is beautiful. You would not be disappointed with the size of your accommodations, they are spacious and beautiful. The limiting factors are:- food choices as there is only one restaurant for the entire resort. If you are a vegetarian or vegan your choice is one item. Buffet style was limited and so were the choices; disappointing. However the staff are friendly and accomadating. There is no night time entertainment. Their children's club is a small room that does not offer more than a baby sitting service. They have no structured programs for the children. For a large Resort they have no gym. The Resort has a fairly good selection of water sports for the family. English habour and Shirley Heights is a must see. Taxis service from the Resort is an added cost but it is worth it and so convenient. The taxis drivers were great and very safe drivers.

Lovely picturesque upscale resortPosted Mar 6, 2017
This resort is perfect for those who want to relax and unwind with mostly couples and few children when we stayed late Feb/early March The only activities are water sports- There is no gym and only one restaurant currently, although there are plans to expand,and not much to do in the evenings after dinner except visit the small lobby bar The food was excellent, better than we have experienced on most other islands The landscaping is lovely and small beach easily accessible , which never seemed too crowded There are several pools which could prove challenging to anyone middle age or older as there are no safety handrails. Also none in the bathroom by the jacuzzi tub The one bedroom deluxe oceanfront suite was lovely, upscale and well equipped. Full kitchen if you did not want to eat all meals at the restaurant. Comfortable king bed The one downside- too many birds in the open air dining area at breakfast and lunch (they do not seem to come in the evening) I was pooped on during one meal and they chairs and cushions are stained with bird poop, needing to be wiped down often. They annoyingly wait for you to make a trip to the buffet and will then move in on anything left on your table, including your water and other beverages We discussed this with management and suggested that they set up a bird feeding station away from the dining area They assured us that they would be taking steps to deal with this problem Overall a lovely place to visit

Winter Sun in CaribPosted Jan 18, 2017
Pros: Clean, isolated, huge rooms, spacious resort, beach perfect, 9.5/10
Cons: A little entertainment early evening, would make this resort a 10/10
Location: fairly isolated, but for some this is perfect, 30min drive from Falmouth/English Harbour, where bars etc,
Hotel overall , absolutely fantastic, I would definitely stay here again, we had 7 day break, AI , very quite tranquil resort, not resort if you want to party or even have a drinking session really, just chill out, this would be hard to beat. A little entertainment through evening wouldn't go a miss though! Overall rating 8.5/10

Large rooms great staff, windy side of the islandPosted Dec 19, 2016
Pros: Facilities and staff.
Cons: I would like to see SUP boards included in the package.
Location: There are kayak and snorkeling trips nearby at Paddles. Other beaches, half moon bay 12 minutes, Jolly Harbor (restaurants and bars) 30 min.
We had a very nice stay at Nonsuch Bay Resort. The rooms are very large and well appointed. Our beach side suite had a full kitchen, huge deck, and strong amenities such as A/C, WiFi and cable TV. Our room came stocked with bottled water, soft drinks, wine, beer and 5 year rum. The food and drink were well above average, staff are very attentive. Water sports are comprehensive however during the time we were there it was very windy so only the large sail boats were viable for most sailors. The beach on this Atlantic side resort was not as spectacular as the beaches on the Caribbean side, we had a rental car and most days we drove the 45 minutes to different beach spots. Very nice resort, just a bit remote from some of the islands other spots.
