“Paradise in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

A small but very special place. Very close to the beach, but up the hillside with a spectacular view!
Jackie the owner also is a wonderful chef and had special fresh meals daily! Ryan had my coffee ready every morning and only needed to be asked once(open the blinds and it was there in minutes). Ryan drove us wherever we wanted and got us there safe even though people drove crazy there. Jackie took care of all our special needs and arranged whatever we needed., I also want to thank Evelyn who cleaned the suite and helped at meals. We will miss talking with you while we had our coffee on the balcony. I hope your little one is feeling better.. We already miss you guys! (and the FOOD!)

Room Tip: The suites were large and had a complete kitchen that we never had to use. The other smaller rooms...

We first set foot stressed out when we arrived in Antigua. Our first two nights were at a hotel on the other side of the island. When we left our Hotel and arrived at the villas we new all stress was gone. Jackie and her staff greeted us with a lunch and drinks! Her food was the best and we never needed a menu. I think we took a picture of every meal. The view of the ocean from villas during the day and night is breath taking. Yes the water is really that clear and the staff is as amazing as everyone one has said. A special thank you to Ryan aka "Superman". The only downside that I can think of is that no other vacation we have can measure up to this one. First vacation I never had to plan a single thing. Jackie took care of it all and it was great to get to talk Jackie, Ryan and Evelyn. They felt like friends and made it hard to go home. Both my wife Emily and I want to truly say thank you again for the memories of a lifetime.

We were very fortunate to get to visit this resort while in port on a cruise. Ryan met us at the cruise port and brought us to the resort and later to the beach at Dickenson Bay. We were highly impressed with the facility and the picturesque views from the main house veranda. The beach was also fantastic. The owner/chef Jackie could not have been more hospitable and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with her over a great shrimp pasta lunch (which happened to be on Thansgiving day). They are just starting to accept day visitors. It is well worth contacting Jackie prior to arrival to see if such a day visit is being offered. I guarantee you will enjoy your visit.

The Villas at Sunset Lane is a small boutique hotel run by it's proprietor, "Jackie", who welcomed us, cooked for us, and made sure all of our needs were met with a smile.

The property is relatively new. The rooms we stayed in are modern, have flat screen TVs, wireless internet, and of course air conditioning. The hotel has its own backup generator, which sprung into action within seconds during a power outage.

Besides the room, I must comment on the cooking: Jackie is really unbelievable. Not only is everything fresh and finely prepared, she also heeds attention to special diet needs. I felt really well taken care of!

Private, Warm and Beautiful. I miss Jackie and her cooking already. I've not been disappointed in any trip to Antigua. This is my 3rd trip in 12mos. and every trip gets better and better. The Hotel is beautiful in its "Island Pink and White" with lush green trees surrounding. Jackie, can you move to LA?
God Bless.

Room Tip: Take a top floor Rm!! The VIEW!!!!!!

We just returned from our stay at the Villa's and would recommend this place to anyone who likes great food, great service and wants the more "home like" feel of a resort rather than the large properties. Jackie and her staff will go out of their way to make sure that your stay meets or exceeds all of your expectations. Ryan her go to guy was also the best. He really tries to make sure that you are having a great time and that includes stops at the local bars. He was the last person we saw most evenings and was there again to greet us the next day. Overall, we hope to return and would say at the Villa's again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are very nice but the ones in the main villa have the best views.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I have just returned from a 10 day holiday with my family (adult). We had read the glowing reviews of this boutique hotel and were not disappointed. It was everything we had hoped. The hotel itself is very attractive with comfortable rooms, a dining room with beautiful views over Dickenson Bay and a peaceful and inviting pool. But what makes this hotel so special is Jackie, the proprietor and her staff, in particular Ryan. Nothing is too much trouble for her and we soon felt as if we were staying with an old friend. If there is anything you want to do in Antigua just mention it to her and she will organise it. She is also a brilliant chef, even persuading my son - a reluctant cook- to try his hand at cooking her special jerk chicken and showing him how to do it. Ryan too was always willing to drive us around and was unfailingly cheerful, on time and knew his way to wherever we requested (including finding the departure point for the Montserrat ferry, which seemed to have been moved without prior notification). Be warned, this is no ordinary hotel and will spoil you for anywhere else.
