The resort was very nice! The staff made it very an even better stay. Andre is so polite and nice, he’s a naturally nice person he was always so helpful and smiling. Patrina was always so sweet and great to talk to she always made sure I was good. Maxine always did her best to accommodate me and was always polite as well. Keira was funny and very welcoming and did not forget anything I asked her for. Tameeka greeted me by name every time I saw her and constantly asked am I ok? Do I need anything? How could she help?. Naisha was so nice and attentive. Peter was so fun and energetic I joked that he was the hotels entertainment, he made great drinks and always had us laughing and having fun. Sheena always made sure anything I needed when it came to food exceeded my expectations. The chef was amazing he was going home and I was shocked to see he was young . Every night I joked with my fiancé I’m going to secretly enter the chef on a US television show called chopped. The resort was always clean my room was cleaned daily. The only down side to my stay was there is no gym at the hotel . Also if you decide to visit make sure it’s during a time when everything will be open. I traveled during Good Friday and Easter the beaches were closed the entire time.

Overall this wonderful location especially a Romantic getaway.

Upon arrival on 3/29 we were greeted by Andre & Rihanna. They made sure we scheduled our covid testing for departure & walked us down to our room to make sure everything was up to par prior to giving us a key.

Front desk & Housekeeping were great. I personally did not have any issues or miscommunication with them.

Dining: The food & service here was unimaginably great. The menu changes daily however don't let that scare you. Even picky eaters would enjoy the menu here. IF you skip breakfast just remember to down & let them know what time you would like to have lunch and dinner. The dining area gave you a beautiful view of the bay. You may also opt to have food delivered to your room for a fee.

Room: We opted for the Bayview which didn't disappoint especially during the evenings. Housekeeping kept the room clean & water refilled in our mini frig. The slight downside was the water temperature for showering was not extremely hot. Temperature was more so warm to hot. Also the air conditioner kept the room cold (this was a con for ME* since I dislike cold temps at night). The room also lacked a microwave just incase you pick something up while you're out.

If you would like to explore Antigua definitely rent a car prior to leaving the airport. The rental place is literally walking distance from the front door of the airport. (Hertz/budget/thrifty etc) Our car rental was approximately $130 for 5 days. This hotel is NOT close to the tourist area so plan accordingly. If you let this discourage you from staying here then you'll certainly be missing out.

This hotel was overall great, very clean and took COVID very seriously while trying to provide the best experience for their guests.

Recommendations for couples: Get the bayside view rooms (its worth the price!), Rent a car it will save you A LOT of money on taxi's (like $300-400 worth), don't assume that the staff have had a chance to talk to one another to relay your requests - be patient and explain your request to each staff member that you meet at the front desk as they are juggling a lot of guests,

Pros: great gourmet food, great restaurant service (Maxine, Carl and Niasha were amazing and took care of us from DAY 1!), supportive/helpful staff, clean hotel

Cons: drinks were inconsistent - tasted very different every time you ordered the same drink, you have to wait out in the sun for your COVID test, expensive taxis that were inconsistent in price vs. distance costs (get a rental car!), staff is not forthcoming with recommendations - if we didn't ask about things in detail, we didn't get the full picture of things and missed out on some opportunities/decisions.

Room tip: Book the bayview, totally worth it!

I don’t know where to start!! Everything about this resort is amazing! The rooms with a private plunge pool and soaking tub on your deck are so romantic! The food - bfast, lunch, pool bites, and dinner - was so delicious and had several options to choose from. We were there 6 nights and never saw the same food on the menus. You picked your times for lunch and dinner and never once did we not get our choice. Drinks are served with meals and also at the pool bar. None of this amazingness would matter though if the service wasn’t good, and let me just say it was 5 ++++ Stars!!! It didn’t seem like they knew the word no. Some went above and beyond (which is so much higher than the standard) but ALL the staff was exceptional. Everyone seemed pleased that you were there and happy to get you whatever you needed. We have traveled the world and the service and the feeling of being pampered was the best I have had to date!!
Now let me talk about the amenities....
Keep in mind this is during Covid, so some things were different than normal times. The Escape side has a main pool, including plenty of lounge chairs, a bar and seating area, and it’s connected to the restaurant where you eat your meals. The pool area is very pretty and while we were there, never had more than 3 couples at a time hanging around. Very easy to space out. There was never a “line” to wait for ordering or getting drinks. We got drinks several times to go - for the beach, other side of the resort, and room. The restaurant is spacious and never seemed crowded - again very easy to space out and feel safe. There are three private docks with lounge seats below the restaurant where we sat several times with drinks to watch the sunset, just to have a different view than the amazing ones from our pool in our room. You can also set up a free boat ride over to Green Island with the receptionist - usually offered 2-3 times a day. We ended up going twice on our 6 night stay. Plan ahead though bc the driver is not there every day. We hung out on one side where all the yachts were parked one day and snorkeled on the other side the other day. I could have easily gone every day! It’s very peaceful and beautiful. We also went over to the other main side of the resort two days. During Covid this all seems almost completely shut down, with hardly anyone around. It had our favorite infinity edge pool overlooking a bigger more open bay. There was no service going on so we brought our own towels and cups filled with drinks from the Escape side. The beach did have a lot of seaweed at the time we were there but it seemed like they were in the process of cleaning it up. We still enjoyed lounging in the ample beach chairs with gorgeous palms swaying above us. We were the only ones there.
The receptionist has limited tours to offer, ones that are certified to still be open during Covid. Keep in mind, if they do not offer hotel pick up/ drop off, it can be an extra $80 for a cab round trip. This was really the only negative we found during our entire stay. We heard a few other guests doing the swim with the stingrays that was nearby and they seemed to really enjoy it. No extra costs for a cab. We opted to rent a car for the day for $120 and we planned our own excursion. They drive on the left and you do have to dodge some potholes to avoid a flat tire, but we had a wonderful 9 hours of driving completely around the island, stopping at several beaches.
You are not on the ocean when you stay at NonSuch Bay Escape, and we did wonder if maybe we had missed out by that. But after touring the island and comparing the romance, amenities, and service at NonSuch Bay Escape - we decided we had made the right choice!
Another tip - you can get a short cab ride over to Half Moon Bay for a beautiful ocean view and nearly secluded beach.
We highly recommend coming here! I cannot imagine any reason not to!!

We really enjoyed our time at Nonsuch Bay! The rooms are beautiful and the staff is super friendly. There was not one meal that we did not enjoy!! For Covid testing back to the US it is important to note that these are only free from the hotel on Mondays and Thursdays. We were not made aware of this, so unfortunately we had to pay $175/pp, but the hotel made it right with us, which really made us value the management. This is an all inclusive hotel, but not 24/7 and room service is an extra charge. Overall we had a wonderful trip and we would go back!
