Relaxing Holiday

Ipswich, United Kingdom

We had a lovely two week stay here during July/August. It's a very quiet and relaxed hotel. Our children went to kids club a couple of times, the staff were lovely and provided fun activites like kayaking and sailing, they also enjoyed the movie on the beach with the bonfire and toasted marshmallows. The seaweed is cleared up very quickly from the beach and the hourly boat to Green Island was fantastic. The children enjoyed snorkeling, an amazing experience for them to spot Turtles and Sting Rays. Most days a large boat trip visits Green Island, turning up around 11am and leaving at about 1.15pm. We would go over at 1pm so the boat was getting ready to leave and we would then have a couple of hours with it being less crowded and much quieter. We even had the beach to ourselves for an hour one day. We hired a car for two days, it was very easy to get around, we used a Sat Nav App on our phone and a map to help us. It was great to see some of the island, we visited English Harbour, Nelsons Dockyard, Pigeon Point and had lovely lunches at Boom and OJ's. We also went to Darkwood Beach, a beautiful beach with a fun inflatable water park. It cost 20 USA dollars for two sunbeds and a parasol for the day and 15 USA dollars each for an hour at the water park (at the time of our visit). The snorkelling was also good here, we hired snorkels and masks from the hotel and took them with us for the day. The food at the hotel was great, there is only one restaurant but the menu changes every two days with BBQ on Thursdays. Lots of choice, lovely salads at lunch, 3 course meals in the evening and great desserts to choose from. The staff make this such a lovely place to stay always smiling and friendly. We would like to thank everyone but in particular Natasha (who always went out of her way to speak to us), David and Everton at the bar, all of the sailing staff in particular Denise (for teaching our children how to sail and for making Jamie smile!) and Mikey. Thank you to the lovely waiters/waitresses and Avella and also to the girls on Green Island who looked after us with drinks, sunbeds and snorkelling gear.

Feels like our second home!

Jersey, United Kingdom

We have just returned home from a wonderful relaxing 3 weeks at Nonsuch bay. It is our second year staying at the resort and it really feels like our second home. A sign of a fantastic place is when guests return year after year. There are so many guests who have done the same as us. Nonsuch Bay Resort is a very very special place!!. (If you want late night bars, daytime pool entertainment, loud music during the day, sun-bed reserving, and a party atmosphere ...this is not the place for u!) Nonsuch is absolutely not that sort of place ( thank goodness!!!) it’s five star service in a totally laid back quiet way. The resort makes children feel welcome but makes parents feel like they can escape and relax... they have a perfect balance of luxury, amazing service, water-sport activities and a very special Caribbean vibe which makes you instantly take life easy, relax and lets your stress melt away. On arrival we were welcomed by familiar faces who remembered us and we settled in straight away enjoying rum punch and refreshing cool towels as we checked in... lovely touch after along flight! Our 2 bed apartment was yet again fantastic for a family of four with an 11 and 14 year old. So much space for us to spread out and not feel on top of each other! The food as mentioned in other posts is buffet breakfast and lunch. Dinner is a la carte every night apart from Thursday which is bbq. It is all delicious. Cooked to perfection and a good variety. Fantastic egg station at breakfast! Children who are picky eaters may struggle to find something at lunch but they are always happy to cook up some fries for them! At dinner there is a kids menu with a good choice. We loved the nouveau cuisine dinner portions. (If you do get hungry in between there is afternoon tea at 4pm and a small shop to buy snacks and ice cream) There is evening entertainment a couple of nights a week which is provided by local bands / musicians. These bands were fantastic and just the right amount of entertainment! It finishes 9.30/10pm which is ideal to make sure the resort is quiet for people needing their sleep. Unfortunately for many islands in the Caribbean seaweed is a problem... but Nonsuch has it sorted. The booms deflect the seaweed away from the main beach and any that gets through is quickly cleaned up... it did NOT cause a problem to our stay! The beach is still beautiful. But what other resorts don’t have is hourly access to green island! On the hour every hour the resort provides a free shuttle out to the uninhabited crystal clear water and white sands of green island. There are towels, drinks, snorkelling kit and beds out there for Nonsuch guests to use. You will spot turtles, rays, coral, fish etc and if you look carefully octopus! Go in the morning when you are more likely to miss the big tour boats coming in. Take shade and suncream! If you love sailing or want to learn this is the place to come. The instructors are incredibly patient and honest... they won’t let you out on your own until you are ready and won’t let you out if the weather isn’t stable for sailing... (Devon don’t forget it’s your fault it was too windy for us to take the elite out! 😂) Although we didn’t use the kids club I would of 100% trust them with my kids. They are always going off on cool adventures! This year there were a lot of teenagers which is a relatively new thing for the resort. Devon arranged an hour of games on the beach and kept them busy. Tips.... Beach/ pool towels are provided. Pick them up at reception and when you need new ones take them back and swap them....don’t leave on the loungers to be collected. Hairdryers, toiletries, full kitchen, washing machine, dishwasher and much more in the apartment. If you struggle with walking ask for an apartment on the middle row. Look out for the wildlife.... especially the pelicans they are incredible! The resort is gated with security checking who comes and goes. Security patrol the resort at night. Now to the most important part. Thanking the amazing people who work at Nonsuch. Everyone goes out of there way to make your stay one you will never forget. But some special shout outs go to the people we made a special connection with. In the restaurant... AVELLA and MAXINE... thank you for all the laughs, conversation and fun we had at mealtimes! Shenezia, Jesse and Omar for making us feel so welcome! Lavenie for the best poached egg and omelette at breakfast (and all your hard work at lunch too!) David and Everton at the bar... kept the drinks flowing and the teenagers in check! Watersports... Devon (“don’t worry about a thing”!) and Denise for being so patient teaching the kids to sail. Natasha is always ready to help out out with whatever you need to arrange. Nothing is too much trouble! Michelle at reception always smiling and friendly, and genuinely happy to help us out with everything. Thank you Kathleen from housekeeping for being so friendly and chatty and for looking after our apartment and working around us! Thanks for giving us a very memorable three weeks in paradise. We will be back next year (hopefully!) from The Dupre’s!
