Special home away from home, lovely staff, fun watersports BUT needs maintenance

Absolutely loved the resort for many reasons. The staff is lovely, friendly and accomodating; the location of the resort is unique as it's placed in the best bay of the island, with trade winds ideal for sailing & kitesurfing. The nearby Green island is one of those untouched natural beauties hard to find nowadays with the increasing boat tourism. The resort's small beach was cleaned from sea-weed on a regular basis and ideal for morning swims as slightly tucked away from the wind/waves. However, for the sake of future guests, I must list a number of negative aspects that I hope the resort's management will take into consideration and works towards eradicating. First and foremost, the incessant AC noise kept my husband and I (together with many other guests I spoke to) awake at night and drove us a little crazy on our balcony during the day when we were trying to peacefully read. Some AC units seemed louder than others, quite sad actually as they prevented us tuning into the sound of the sea or the birds! I suggest they need upgrading as they literally sound like an airplane taking off. Its a shame people over-used them as it was beautifully windy with no mosquitos! Secondly, we stayed in a suite too close to the restaurant, which had regular bands playing and very loud music every other night. Some evenings it was pleasant, but after a while it got on our nerves as we would be trying to fall asleep but even earplugs wouldn't help!! I wonder if it would be possible for them to decrease the volume and to ensure all music is off by 9.30 max. One of the pools had no shower to wash off the chlorine as well as a very tall hedge that meant no wind would come through!! Unbearable to be there, maybe adding a few more umbrellas would be convenient given how popular the pools were for kids and their families? Last but not least, the bathroom in our suite was tired and the wooden flooring was scratched and started to lift in places. The balcony rails were also in need of attention before they became too dangerous for children. The dishwasher was broken and the fridge's water dispenser also didn't work. Forgot to mention the drinks at the bar weren't too tasty, no fresh fruit drinks other than pineapple, mostly low quality with lots of syrups. The dinner's portions were quite small and rather unimaginative, despite beautifully presented. Perhaps I would ask to put a little more effort in quality & quantity versus presentation? Service was attentive and setting spectacular though! Overall the resort resembled a mini paradise and I would definitely recommend it to families with small children especially because of the presence of a great Kids Club too! Looking forward to our next stay!

Fantastic break

Broxbourne, United Kingdom

We stayed at Nonsuch Bay in October 2017 and couldn’t fault it. From our first welcome drink to use of a shower room after we checked out but were waiting for our evening flight, everything was great. The staff were all very friendly, the waiting staff took the time to learn the kids’ names and looked after them very well. We always had a laugh with Natasha and the other kids club staff, and the sailing staff were great too. Room (2 bedrooms) was great and we always found the food to be very good. Location is good and use of the boats, canoes and trips to Green island really made the holiday. Excellent bar staff also helped!. A great trip and we hope to return soon.
