My family and I absolutely loved this resort and it ended too soon. The beach was beautiful and there is something for everyone to do. My sister and I enjoyed going out at night and felt safe on the resort. L'Anguilla and the rest of the animation/entertainment staff were incredible! We can't wait to go back.

The shows were very good and entertaining and the cleanliness of the rooms is good though there are a lot... More

Me and my fiance stayed at this hotel beginning of May, 2014. The ride to the hotel was long but not too bad. It was nice seeing all of scenery and little towns we passed on the way. Check-in/Money Exchange The check-in process was good. Although we were both very hungry, we survived the check-in and were on our way... More

My rating is 3 1/2 out of 5 Traveled with Sunwing- no complaints, its was worth the extra for Elite Premium Plus. I would recommend the pre-booking of seats it makes it easier with family traveling and extra weight. Travel Time-1 1/2 hour bus ride, the Sunwing reps(Augusto and Gianco) made the ride interesting with the information and history of... More

This hotel was absolutely amazing. We stayed in May for 8 nights and all the staff were really friendly and welcoming. The service is fast and the bartenders (especially at the pool bar) do everything they can to ensure you are having a great time! The food was delicious and there were lots of seafood and pork options. The beach... More
