“Another great review for Jackie and her team”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This isn't the type of place we would normally stay (we were on business) however we're glad to have stayed with Jackie and her team. They took great care of us, even getting up at 4am to ensure we caught our LIAT flight on time. Fantastic food in an intimate setting, well appointed, clean rooms and fantastic views. You really can't go wrong with this place.

My husband and I stayed at the Villas from May 27th through June 3rd and I am sitting at my desk wishing and daydreaming that we were back there. To say this is the place for some R&R is an understatement. This place IS the place to go to leave the office, the blackberry, the kids, the relatives, and the whole world behind. It took me two days to get used to the peaceful serenity – then I never wanted it to end. You are the stars at this resort. A cook, a driver, and a peaceful retreat – it is all about you. The owner Jackie, who is a wonderful host, is no stranger to the 60 hour workweek having spent many years in the NYC accounting profession. She knows what guests are looking for, and she makes sure that she and her staff deliver. One night we were discussing massage techniques and I told Jackie I loved massages. The next day, she surprised us with a complimentary couples massage. What hotel does that?? This place really makes you feel like you are part of the family and it’s hard to leave without feeling some kind of bond with them. Their hospitality and warm service is unparalleled and once you go there, you'll just keep dreaming about going back.

Room Tip: Ask Ryan to give you a tour of the island. It's a lot more fun than the group tours.

I am still here and I don't want to
Leave!!! The ambiance is extremely serene and beautiful. Jackie is so attentive and genuinely excited about her guests and more than invested in ensuring that they have an excellent experience. This place is perfect for a relaxing retreat and I can't wait to come back !

We are a young couple from Europe who spent an unforgettable week in January 2013 at this really beautiful boutique hotel! Jackie -the owner and an excellent chef as well!- is really exceptional! Everything is perfect : the hotel has a marvellous view on Dickenson Bay , the rooms are big and so clean, the food is excellent and Jackie's rum punch rocks! Ryan is a great guy and he will drive you everywhere you want to! Don't hesitate to ask him for the hot spots of the island : he 'll give you the best addresses! We even celebrated New Year on the beach! Great memories ...if you're thinking of visiting Antigua , this is definitely THE place to stay!!!

Some tips : Rent a car and discover the island - it's a real fun!!! (ask Jackie to organize the car rental for you!) - Don't miss to visit Barbuda (the sister island of Antigua - REAL PARADISE!!!)

As stated in other reviews the Villas is about a 5 minute walk down the hill to the beach. It does get busy when the cruise ships are in so try to go on non cruise ship days if you prefer a quieter time.

Jackie organised a car hire for us (delivered to the villa) which we'd thoroughly recommend. It was great to cruise around the island finding some quieter beaches and seeing some of the towns and other attractions.

Stars of the show at this place are the staff, in particular Jackie and Ryan. Jackie is incredibly welcoming and the heart and soul of the villas. Every day she serves up wonderful food on the balcony overlooking Dickinson bay. There's no menus and no need for them. Jackie is a wonderful cook and ensures all her guests needs are catered for, listening to their likes and dislikes and being sure to cook everyone happy. She took great care to cater for my vegetarian wife, going so far as not to serve cheese that she wasn't 100% sure was vegetarian.

Ryan is an unsung hero. Happy to drive you into town, down to the beach or take you elsewhere he was full of interesting insights and useful advise about the island.

After a day exploring the island Sunset is the perfect place to come home to. Excellent home cooked food, rum punch, friendly chats with the other guests and staff and a view of the sunset to die for.

We stayed at the Villas for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the moment we arrived, Jacqui made us feel so very welcome.
This is an all-inclusive hotel, but nothing feels regimented. Relaxation and comfort are certainly key in the hotel's philosophy.
Our room was very comfortable and all facilities were very clean and fully functional. Jacqui's staff were always polite, courteous and helpful. The food is amazing - Jaqui's cooking is of the highest standard and is a major feature of this hotel.
If you are looking for a place to stay that benefits from feeling like a home-from-home, then we would thoroughly recommend the Villas at Sunset Lane as the perfect place to stay in Antigua.

If you are looking for the big resort hotel on the beach with all the guests and amenities including beach umbrellas and wait staff outside your room; then, you missed your turn at the end of Sunset Lane.
This is like having a private villa with a great chef and your own driver.
Jackie and Ryan were wonderful. The food is excellent and cooked to order whenever you want it. Home cooking too. The conversation with Jackie is as wonderful as the food. Get Ryan to give you a personal driving tour around the island if you want to know more about Antigua.
I took a chance and set up a massage. They had a lady come out just for my spa treatment. It was wonderful, one of the best I have had.
Quiet, peaceful, great food and someone to take care of your every need.
That beach with all of its umbrellas and bar tenders is only about a 10 walk.
