I stayed at the Villas at Sunset Lane with my boyfriend for 5 nights at the end of March. We had an amazing experience! The accommodations were perfect for us...a private boutique hotel, set up on a cliff with the most breathtaking view and still just quick 7 minute walk to the beach. The owner, Jackie, is so sweet and such a fantastic cook, I really enjoyed getting a taste of the islands and Jackie's rich history with each meal.
The island is bigger than it appears so you can be travelling for up to an hour at times, depending on what part of the island you are trying to get to, but we didn't have to worry about this at all! Instead of having to deal with cabs or buses, we had Ryan. Ryan works around the property and doubles as driver for her guests. It was soooooooo convenient and allowed my boyfriend and I to truly relax and take it all in.
Living in NY, it is sometimes a challenge to let the city go and enjoy your time off, but with Jackie and Ryan and the rest of the staff's help we were able to decompress immediately. Exactly what we needed. I want to go back now!!!

Room Tip: We chose one of the standard rooms so our room didn't have a view of the water, but we didn't miss it, the views from the balcony, where we dined each day were enough to keep us happy, but next time, I may pay a little extra to experience that view at all hours. Gorgeous.

We absolutely loved this hotel. We booked on the basis of other tripadvisor reviews, and Jackie Thomas, the owner and chef, and her fine team (hello Ryan and Doreen) gave us one of the great hotel experiences of our lives - not just fulfilling our high expectations but exceeding our hopes. Not only is the hotel remarkable value for money, beautifully appointed (great beds!), boutique but unpretentious, exceptionally clean and well-managed, offering sensational home-cooked food while you enjoy the pleasure of the lovely vista; it does what the bigger, more commercialized places can never do: it gives you the human touch, and the feel of home from home. And so from the moment we arrived, we knew we were in the hands of someone who cares deeply about her guests' welfare and enjoyment.
Immediately upgraded to room 4 (recommended) and plied with home-made food and drink (much appreciated after an Atlantic flight), we were looked after, day after day, in the most generous, thoughtful and accomplished ways. Jackie also took time and pains to organize excellent day trips (Barbuda is a must), car hire, trips into town... and I also enjoyed the best massage of my life from Barbra, the massage therapist.
In short, I recommend this hotel to all who have ears to hear. If you value attention to detail, value for money and a calm, beautiful, relaxing ambience, you cannot go wrong here. The Villas at Sunset is an absolute gem of the Caribbean.

Room Tip: We loved room 4 - spacious, well-appointed, with an exceptionally comfortable, large bed.

We spent a few days in April at the Villas with Jacquie and had the most amazing time. The Villas are wonderful, her staff is friendly and can't do enough for guests, and the food .... exceptional! As a trained chef Jacquie will make anything you would like using seasonal ingredients and fusion cuisine. This was the most relaxing vacation we have had, just like visiting with dear family and friends and wined and dined, at all times. Cant wait to return.

Room Tip: Bring sunscreen and a hat, prepared to relax

My family and I checked into The Villas At Sunset Lane after a poor experience at another hotel on the island. After consulting TripAdvisor (thanks, guys!) we were encouraged to check availability at The Villas...and were thrilled when we were told that we would be able to get a room.

The Villas lived up to its glowing reviews, and far exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jackie, the owner/chef. To call Jackie warm and hospitable would be an understatement. She showed us to our room, turned on some music, and asked if she could prepare a local lunch for us. For all of the foodies out there - this is definitely the place for you because Jackie went to culinary school! I greatly miss her cheese sandwiches (a spread made with pepper seasoning), carrot cake, tea, and lemonade made with fresh ingredients from her garden. Another thing to keep in mind is that Jackie customizes her meals based on your preference and dietary needs...so if you are a raw vegan, she will whip up something to keep you in check.

In addition to the fantastic food (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and beverages), the actual building is pristine. Immaculate! The Villas at Sunset Lane boasts a number of private suites (I believe 10), 2 cottages that resemble small bungalows, a pool, a gym, and massage rooms. It's location is very private, overlooking the turquoise ocean. While it is not on the beach, it is only about an 8 minute walk... or a 2 minute shuttle ride away. Jackie also has some friends on the beach that will get you situated with beach chairs and umbrellas.

While The Villas is only a few years old, it runs like a well established boutique hotel. It is a place that I would expect to be featured in a magazine citing where stars travel to due to its privacy and its personal level of service. Oh, and the staff is top notch. In addition to Jackie, Ryan and Ms. Thomas keep The Villas looking beautiful and its guests happy. The knowledge that each of them has can help make your stay in Antigua truly special - whether you choose to leave the hotel and explore the island, or remain at The Villas and just relax. This is a great place for families with adult children, couples, or a girls' weekend. It has mass appeal.

If you are looking for a "home away from home" in Antigua, and an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind hotel, look no further than The Villas at Sunset Lane! I can't wait to return...Jackie, we miss you!

I recently stayed at The Villas at Sunset Lane on a “girls trip” with some friends. No sooner had we arrived, than we were already being asked if we would like some rum punch and if the host/owner/chef Jackie could fix us something for lunch. That was just the beginning of the royal treatment we received at this fabulous boutique hotel. Not only was it just like a home away from home, but it was also a pampering getaway. Between the half hour massage each of us received as part of our package, the boat tour around the island that included visiting a small beach island and guided snorkeling, the absolutely delicious food prepared by Jackie, and of course the nearby beach, this truly was a trip that delighted all tastes and senses!

Jackie was both a gracious and welcoming host, who shortly after our arrival communicated the “one rule” of the house – the kitchen is always open! In fact, not only could we help ourselves to a drink or snack (and of course the delicious rum punch) at any time, but one night we even got to help in the kitchen and prepare the dessert! Jackie also asked us what we would like to do during our stay and offered options and suggestions to help us plan out our visit (I definitely recommend visiting Shirley Heights to anyone who comes to the island!). Another welcoming event was a wine tasting held on the premises that Jackie had organized with a local wine bar/shop. Finally, of course it cannot go unmentioned that EVERYONE on the staff was friendly and eager to accommodate, especially Ryan who was always available if we needed anything and also took us all to some of the island attractions.

Overall, Jackie offers impeccable service and warm hospitality in an inviting paradise-like setting with gourmet meals that you will still be thinking about long after you’ve enjoyed them. Such personal attentiveness and attention to detail truly makes the Villas at Sunset Lane a unique experience.
