Escape at Nonsuch Bay was amazing. The room, views, staff, food, and location were exceptional. At arrival, Rehanna greeted us with welcome drinks and exceptional customer service. She checked us in efficiently and timely. Rehanna was informative about the resort and things we could experience. Maxine the waitress was absolutely AMAZING! Every night she served us with a smile and had an infectious personality. She ensured our dining experience was luxury and exceptional. She definitely needs to become a manager of dining services her service was top tier and she should be recognized for her work ethic. Schema the host, Jeneice, and Peter the bartender were also exceptional. The floating breakfast delivered by Andre was beautiful! He was prompt with delivery, energetic, and gave us 5-star room service with a smile! Lastly, the sunset dinner dockside was special. We truly enjoyed the scenery, food, and a special time together. Overall, Escape at Nonsuch Bay was the vacation of my dreams. It is truly a romantic time and the best place to spend with your significant other to relax, reconnect, and recharge.

Hotel's Favourite
We loved our time at Escape. The room was so lovely with a cute outdoor space with a bath, and a personal pool with a stunning view, spectacular sunset. The bed was so comfortable, the pillows were like sleeping on clouds. The food at the restaurant was yummy, à la carte with great choices. The restaurant staff were amazing, friendly and helpful, (June, Mauricia, Terry-ann, Karen, Tinijah, Jeniece & Nyshia). Thank you to Maxine & Filson, for remembering our favourite dishes and drinks, those guys served us the best lobster every time! Thanks also to Shena – the restaurant hostess, always dressed beautifully, and happy to chat and help with queries. The pool was beautiful with a fantastic view, the staff served yummy tapas always with a smile, Peter, Filson and June made the best cocktails, they were so skilled with their magic blender. The piña-colada “oh my”, not too sweet not too strong! A massive thank you to all the receptionists (Sabrina, Charissa, Keirah, Rehanna and Vilma), they did their utmost to provide a 5 star service. From airport transfers to late checkout... Thanks ladies for the lovely chats about life in Antigua. What a gorgeous place to call home! It was lovely to get to know the staff and their love for the island. We had the most wonderful time, after a mad 2020, we couldn’t have asked for a better ‘Escape’ to recharge and experience human kindness. The only thing we wish we had, was a book in the room with all the services available, it would help the guest to know what’s available to them… laundry services, floating breakfast, and all other experiences Escape may offer. We gratefully did the trip to Green Island but missed out on the private picnic on the beach, we found out on our last day! If you’re looking for a wonderful holiday experience surrounded by beauty and awesome people, Escape is your next destination! We're forever grateful. F&H

Escape at Nonsuch - Pros: Wonderful staff, warm welcome, excellent food, great pina coladas, clean rooms, nice plunge pool. The family side of the resort isn't open but you can use the pools on that side. The infinity pool is breathtaking. Cons: There isn't much near the resort, everything is about 40-50 minutes away, a cab to the St.John's area (where most excursions are) costs $80-$100 round trip. Please note the beautiful beaches are on that side of the island too. The only all inclusive that doesn't have an all inclusive menu. There is a $38 surcharge for a small sirloin steak amongst other items. If you share a cab with other resort visitors they don't allow you to split the cost of the cab. Each couple is still required to pay $80-$100. There is barely any entertainment. There was a night that we had a musician playing during dinner which was pretty cool. Other than that - crickets. We get that it is an escape resort but many guests had the same grievances and we shared them during our bar talks. This isn't a pro or con - it's really a matter of preference. Breakfast is from 7:30-10:00, no food service from 10:00-12:30pm, lunch at 12:30-2:30, then pool bites from 3:00-5:00. Pool bites consists of potato wedges (yes--all 5 days we were there) and another item. Can range from olives, to pizza to wings. Dinner is from 6:30-8:30. If you miss a meal time, you're out of luck! If your flight arrives around 2:00pm then grab a bite prior to getting to the resort because you won't be getting lunch to 6:30-7:00. Shout out to Maxine, Niasha, Glendale, Peter, and all the other pool deck and restaurant employees. Andre was amazing as well!

Hello jasminc826 Thanks for sharing your review following your stay at The Escape. We are happy that you enjoyed the hospitality of our staff and food and beverage service. As it relates to the all inclusive package we do advertise the package to include breakfast, lunch and dinner with an open bar at specific times. Lobster and steak would be an optional extra. This is normal industry standards. For the entertainment aspect, covid protocol would not have allow for many things recently and regrettably, the entertainment aspect would be be affected. Good news is this is slow changing and we should be able to have more entertainment in the near future. Again, thanks for sharing and we will be sure to share your shoutouts with the team. Warm regards,

The hotel itself is beautiful. Standards in Antigua are generally lower than in many places in terms of decor etc. but this hotel was absolutely stunning - gorgeous. The biggest drawback is that there is no beach. You can pay $10 a head every day to go to a nearby deserted island at prescribed times and swim there for a couple of hours with other guests or walk down to a slightly grotty beach 15 mins away. But given Antigua has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world - if you stay here - I recommend splitting your visit and also staying somewhere on the Caribbean side (this is Atlantic side). Also expect to get told off if you are not wearing your mask in the few yards from the lobby to your table (all outside) - where you are allowed to take it off again. This is all so ridiculous, it kind of spoilt it for me. But the room and the meals were wonderful. The guy who welcomes you at the entrance expects you to take your own bags to and fro from your room and looks surprised if you ask for assistance. And the staff on reception have forgotten how to smile and be charming. But everyone was polite. Meals were excellent.

Hello vanessa_jm_gray Thanks for sharing your review. We see that for the most part you had an enjoyable visit with us. Regarding the beach access, as advertised we have a lovely view of the bay and to enjoy a beach experience we host our guests to an experience at The Residences at Nonsuch Bay Beach or take a lovely boat ride to Green Island. We are happy that you were able to experience both. As it relates to Covid-19 protocols we strive to adhere to what is handed down from the Government. This includes the wearing of mask in all public areas and shared spaces at resorts/hotels. This is to ensure that our guests and staff members are protected against any eventualities. Again, we are happy that you were able to enjoy the stunning views, and decor of The Escape as well as our food and beverage service. It was a pleasure hosting you. Thanks again!
