We stayed here for just under 2 weeks and absolutely loved it! The owner, Jackie, is wonderful and does so much for her guests. You mention something and she has it sorted - taxis, hire car, restaurant bookings etc. Jackie will happily help with all of them if you need it. It’s all very laid back at this lovely B&B (as is the whole island) so she’s there to help but never intrusive. Beach towels were available every day and if you take the shortcut then it’s only a 10 minute stroll to the closest beach (which has the little floating tiki bar on it as well as many other beach bars). If you take the shortcut then there’s also a number of places to eat within a 10-20 minute walk (or you can easily drive and park). Just take a look at Google maps to see the stretch of restaurants along the beach, but remember it will show the long walking route & the shortcut takes a lot off this. We enjoyed eating at Casa Roots & Salt Plage which are both nearby. We recommend hiring a car (Jackie organised this for us) for getting around the island and visiting lots of beautiful beaches & restaurants in different areas. We found this B&B to be a great base for exploring & very safe. You can easily park your hire car at the entrance as it’s on a side road with no passing cars. A huge supermarket is only a 5 minute drive away if you need it. Our room had everything we needed - great TV with lots of channels, hairdryer, iron & ironing board, decent wifi (free), fridge etc. Breakfast was really good! You get fresh local fruit & toast every morning included, with water/tea/coffee. You can then choose, if you want, to add extra on from the menu such as eggs (any way), bacon, savoury biscuits or pancakes. Everything we had at breakfast was delicious! We also opted for dinner on our first night which was brilliant! Jackie can most definitely cook. The terrace for breakfast/dinner also has a beautiful sea view :-) If you’re looking for a large resort then this obviously isn’t the place for you. It’s a fabulous, small B&B (I think it has 8 or 10 rooms?) and a home from home feel. Some guests were there for a week or more, some only one or two nights. Whatever length you need it for, we highly recommend it for your stay in Antigua if you’re looking for a B&B!

We were very pleased with our stay here. The room was extremely clean and spacious. Very nice bathroom as well. Jackie, the owner, was very kind and accommodating in helping us with taxis, restaurants and beach recommendations! It's really only a 10 minute walk to the beach b/c there's a pretty little shortcut down to the main road. (Google says it's more). Breakfast was simple and pleasant with a nice view and a lovely balcony. She will make you dinner upon request and we heard from all that she's a great cook. We went out to eat b/c with COVID, we'd barely dined out and were ready for some people watching! The pool was also clean and nice. Also, she has beach towels. And if you need a beach umbrella there are several places on the beach where you can rent them.

We were in Antigua renting a house for 2 weeks and needed a place to spend our last day. Many hotels have had day passes but with Covid and high season we were not sure what we would find. We spoke to Gloria the owner and took a room for the day until our flight left at 5:00 Pm. The room was sparkling clean with fluffy fresh towels Bottled water And a lovely refreshing pool right outside our door! Gloria made a delicious jerk chicken sandwich for us and we had an opportunity to enjoy our last day in the sun in a lovely small boutique hotel! Thank you Jackie!!!!!!

After our trip to South Africa was cancelled thanks to covid, I called the Villas short notice and asked for a reservation with 3 days to go.. Jackie (the house lady) was truly delightful and we've had the most wonderful week here just a stones throw from the stunning beaches at dickensen Bay.. the rooms are extremely spacious, clean and comfortable but moreover the kindness and the hospitality offered by Jackie made it feel home and part of a family.. One can expect a delicious continental breakfast and arguably some of the best Caribbean food on the island when dinner comes round (indeed Jackie previously hosted culinary classes for cruise ship passengers on excursions).. A trip to the villas is so much more than just a holiday and you will feel a part of the furniture by the end of your stay with a genuine willingness to return- not least due to the wonderful feel Jackie creates.

These villas are a hidden gem in Antigua and should be rated higher. They have all the immunities for your stay with a restaurant, and a pool. They are located a short distance from the beach too. The host/owner Jackie is what makes the stay amazing! Very knowledgable on the island and delightful!

My wife and I flew down for our honeymoon the day after getting married and could not have been happier with our time there. The owner, Jackie, was one of the nicest and most genuine people you'll ever meet. She made us breakfast every morning, helped us navigate the island, and went out of her way to do so many little things to make our trip incredible. The room we stayed in overlooked the pool and all the amenities were exactly like advertised, so no bad surprises. We ventured off the property every day and felt very safe the entire time. We definitely want to see more of the world, but if we ever make it back to Antigua this will be the first place we look at.

I am late in posting my review as I wanted to wait until people were starting to think about travelling again. First off I will say that if you like the big all inclusive resorts then this isn't the place for you, however, if you like something smaller, cosier and that bit different it is certainly worth considering. It isn't right on the beach but does have a small pool and the beach, bars and restaurants are just a short walk, alternatively taxis are relatively inexpensive if you want to go further afield, It must be said that this was one of the strangest holidays we have ever had, when we left London there wasn't even a pandemic but before we got home the UK had gone into lockdown and people were advised to get home before the flights stopped. Anyway, we stayed at the Villas At Sunset Lane in March 2020 (I couldn't get this into the date of travel box so just put May as the earliest date I could use), Because everywhere was closing the tourists on the island were preparing to leave with of course no new ones coming in and because of this my husband and I were the only guests booked in that week, I must admit that this was rather lovely as we had the place to ourselves it was rather like having a house and private chef than being booked into a hotel. The food was excellent we and enjoyed the local dishes freshly prepared by Jacqueline, the owner/chef. I came home armed with some of her recipes although I much prefer eating them in the Villas lovely dining room or on the terrace while looking out at the sea. Our stay was initially one night before we flew to the BVI for a sailing holiday, then we stayed for another week before flying home. Our room was very spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean the only downside was that we didn't have a balcony or terrace although we noticed that other rooms did so if you like some private outside space it might be worth booking one of those rooms but there is a pretty little pool area and a large terrace so there is plenty of places to enjoy the sunshine or to sit and have a drink. Many of the bars and restaurants had already closed so we were lucky to have such a good chef we both enjoyed the food prepared by Jacqueline who made such an effort to give us different dishes everyday. Breakfast was also a treat as we were served freshly prepared breads or baked goods warm from the oven. From the little we saw of Antigua (all tourists attractions had closed) it looked a beautiful island with friendly welcoming people, I hope we get the chance to visit again before too long but in the meantime I wish Jacqueline all the very best and send her a big thank you for making us so welcome and taking such good care of us.

I booked this hotel for my wife who was battling her way back to Jamaica having spent 2 weeks locked down in the uk. Although she was only there for one night waiting for a connection back to Kingston, her delight at staying at sunset made me want to fly out and join her. I was a bit apprehensive booking her in the ‘Pink Palace’ as it’s not her colour of choice but in reality she was so impressed. Well appointed rooms and facilities, good location close to a beautiful looking beaches. The main reason for writing is the owner Jackie made my wife feel so comfortable, very accommodating and charming. A big heartfelt thank you to her on behalf of my wife Marcia who never writes reviews, so I’m doing it. Once this dreadful Covid rubbish is over we will be making a trip to Sunset and urge would be travellers to Antigua to support hoteliers like Jackie who are working so hard. Thank you.

I’m terrible about writing reviews but let me just say there is a reason I am writing this one. I visited this hotel back in late August/early September with my boyfriend during COVID for 15 nights and we had the absolute best experience! Jackie is the owner of the hotel and is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She goes out of her way to cater to your every need. My boyfriend had a rash on his legs and she applied fresh aloe on them daily to help heal them. She fed us every morning and is the best cook!! She recommends you places to visit and will even give you a ride if she has the time for it. This hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk to Dickinson bay and we went there constantly! The water is gorgeous and the restaurants were absolutely amazing (fish tacos and ahi tuna at Salt Plage are a MUST). There is a floating bar on the water called Kon Tiki that was one of our favorite things to do. You can enjoy a rum punch then jump right into the water and swim. So much fun! I recommend renting a car for a few days to explore the island because there is 365 beaches to see. I believe we saw about 10 of those. And yes they are all different from one another. Long bay was one of my favorites. The COVID guidelines were all put in place (wear a mask, social distance, etc.) but does not stop you from having a good time! I really hope this review helps you in deciding to stay at this wonderful boutique hotel. Me and my boyfriend want to stay in Antigua forever because it was such a great experience and so beautiful.

We took an unexpected trip to Antigua and found ourselves staying at The Villas. We received such a personal and warm welcome from Ms. Jackie and found ourselves in a lovely and immaculately clean facility and ensuite room. We were there for a week and enjoyed every single day. The view from the balcony was breathtaking, enjoyed as we had breakfast each morning. If you have time, book a delicious dinner prepared by Jackie. We are so glad we did. Stay at The Villas - you will be so happy you did! We look forward to a return visit. Thank you so much Jackie!
