I had such an amazing experience at this resort that I was absolutely compelled to write a review. The photos online so this resort NO justice. The view and aesthetic is breathtaking, the resort is nestled up in the countryside on hilltop terrain. The location is the DEFINITION of solace. We were considering going with coco bay, cocos, keyonna, etc but this resort was so worth it! Glad we made this choice. When you arrrive, you are greeted by the staff with the most amazing rum punch (thanks Andre!). The food, the food, the food - lunch and dinner menu switches up each day. Breakfast always has a special not on the menu (if you are not told of the specialty dish, ask about it). The staff is beyond amazing, at all ends they make you feel welcome like you are at home. So patient and accommodating. When we left it almost felt as if we were leaving family :(. The room is breathtaking. The view is beyond stunning, w head a bay view (too floor) suite and the daybed and plunge pool became my best friends (I was there more than I was in the actual bed). Either take a 5 minute walk or request at the lobby a staff member shuttle you to the nonsuch bay sister-resort. It is BREATHTAKING you have to check it out and see the infinity pool and beachfront. Notes: Resort does onsite covid rapid/antigen testing for $40 USD PP on Monday and Thursdays. At your request, you can have a shuttle pick you up by name directly from the airport $40 USD each way. There is a boat that goes to a semi-private island that is beautiful, you have to check it out. I heard it used to be free but for us it was $10 USD PP. Cons: I wish the rooms had more garbage cans, we had a small can in the toilet area. I love a steaming hot shower, I only wish the water got slightly hotter than it did. If driving a rental, resort is about 40 minutes from the resort. Island is pretty safe crimewise it’s just super dark and winding road up to the resort at night. Scary but we did it multiple nights and made it back safely. All else, 5 stars. Would definitely stay here again no question of it. Just left and I’m already screaming, “Take me back!”

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

I don’t even know where to begin with how much I enjoyed my 14 days and nights at The Escape. From start to finish, it was one of the most of enjoyable vacations I’ve had to date. During the challenges that has been the pandemic, my time here made of all of that stress disappear. If you love food, then it’s worth coming here for that alone. If you then overlap that with the most stunning rooms that include your own private pool and outdoor bed with stunning views of the ocean bay. The staff are actually some of the kindest, attentive, caring, funny and warm souled humans you will ever find. Hard to single out individuals as every single person who works here has been the best. However, special thank you’s go to: Peter - The best barman you will ever meet and the life and soul of the whole resort. The man is a legend and is in a friend for life. Maxine, Peter’s partner in crime and is an absolute joy of a human being, going above and beyond every time. Schena is the Queen of the resort and brings a level of professionalism and warmth that is hard to match. From start to finish she made sure my stay was perfect and I’m so grateful. Jen, Nyshia, Terry-Ann, Mauracia, June, Karen, Tinijah and Carl are the best restaurant staff you could ever hope for and they made my stagy amazing. I was fed and watered like a King and they really made such an amazing effort. Andre, Brianna, Sabrina, Tameeka, Petrina, Rehanna, Keirah, made sure every single request, question or advice I asked was answered immediately. They were so nice and attentive every single time I saw them that I really felt so welcomed and valued. I hope that is everyone but if I did miss any of the brilliant staff here then I am so sorry, because every single person I met was so kind and warm to me, I’ll be forever thankful. I came as a stranger on my own and with no expectations and I left with a group of friends for life, many, many incredible memories and enough photos for a lifetime. My only recommendation would be that they fill the mini bar with a few alcoholic beverages for the evening as the bar does close relatively early due to the island curfew. If you want a drink after 10pm, I would recommend bringing a bottle or 2 for an evening tipple by your pool. Thanks again everyone at The Escape, you’re an amazing resort and I would come back in a heartbeat. 5 star recommendation!!! Alex (London/NYC)

Our time at the Escape at Nonsuch Bay Resort was thoroughly enjoyed. Our room was clean, luxurious, and state-of-the-art. From the flat screen tv to the indoor pool to the air conditioning unit that turned off when we opened the doors to our own pool, the room was just perfect! The location of Escape was also particularly perfect for us as we were not disturbed by anything on any given night. And in spite of limited amenities, which was due to the COVID situation, we still enjoyed our time there. For us, the main attraction was the staff that we came across. While all the staff members tended to operate with a level of expertise and competence, as well as care for guests, there were a select few who REALLY made our stay there very well enjoyed: Our first special encounter was with Petrina. She made our arrival night very welcoming as she went above and beyond to ensure that we were taken care of upon our arrival. To her we say a hearty "thank you!" Maxine and Maurica made our dining experience well enjoyed as they were very friendly, willing and ready to ensure that we were totally satisfied with our meals (especially that mango smoothie), and they both delivered each time in a very timely manner. Glendon, the security officer, was also extremely pleasant. We especially enjoyed as he shared words of wisdom as he escorted us to our snorkeling experience. And we saved he best for last! Where should we begin with Schena? From the beginning, when she served us, there was something notably different about her. Perhaps it was her dress code, which was a cut above the rest. Or perhaps it was the way in which she exuded a certain "je ne sais quoi" in regality. Whatever it was, it was noticeable. Upon engaging her in conversation, we discovered that she was in management! To see the way that she waited on us, even serving our meals at times and checking on us to ensure that we were satisfied, spoke volumes to her humility and dedication. As the days went by we became quite acquainted with her. She even took several pictures for us as we posed by the pool! We are happy that we met Schena! She definitely adds value to this resort! We also know that there are others who worked behind the scenes to make our experience second to none. Persons such as the housekeepers, who brought fresh linen on time daily; the chefs, who made meals that made our taste buds jump for joy; Velma and Abigail, who we made our initial contact with; and whomever beautified our room for our first night! All in all, we would definitely recommend this place again and again! You would not be disappointed! ~ Davin and Alvita ~
