Really enjoyed this stay. The beach was amazing, very private and secluded. The beach house was clean and well stocked with supplies. What made this a great place is the staff and Patricia made sure that we had everything we needed. The only draw back was if you want to go in the water, you have to be careful where... More

This is our 11th year at Covecastles and it like opening a sliding door and walking into bliss. The beach span has increased but the number of people on it never does. You may pass 2 or 3 people a day as you walk the stretch of beach that is Shoal Bay. Though serviced by housekeepers and staff, you feel... More

Great experience. If you are looking for privacy and a true island experience stay here. It is worth every penny. If you want to be pampered and catered too go elsewhere. This resort is about privacy and simple island life. Everything you need is here except the crowds. Very sweet.

This is somewhere i could almost call home, sure it is the tiniest bit rundown, and a little expensive. But the fact that you can have your own villa right on the beach, with a giant terrace and kitchen, with the service of a hotel is fantastic. If you like to pampered and are a princess (snob) don't stay here.... More

This review is late, but hopefully better than never since the photos might help potential guests see the setting. When we arrived to check in at Cove Castles, Linda and Harriet welcomed us and we were shown to our beach house. We stayed in the first beach house you get to when driving from the entrance. The atmosphere is like... More

Private cove, stunning architecture and the most warm and caring staff made this extended family birthday celebration a lifetime memory. Perfect sunny days, gently lapping turquoise blue water and full moon evening sky made this vacation an 11 on a scale of 1-10!! Our 3 bedroom villa was immaculate, constant cooling sea breeze was delightful and daily maid service was... More

We have been coming to Anguilla for over a decade and wanted to try Cove Castles. We were very disappointed. THe bathrooms are no better than a motel - very cramped and old, with a stall shower. Our villa was crawling with ants. There is no one at all to help out on the beach if you need someone to... More

Have traveled throughout the Caribbean for 40 yrs and stayed at most of the "deluxe" resorts. Half Moon on Montego Bay, Blue Water in Antigua, The Countess in St Thomas (the Best!) etc. I am grateful I can afford to do this. I work hard and travel 3-4 weeks a year. On Dec 22nd I was able to break from... More

I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time, and it did not disappoint, EVERYTHING was perfect. Cove Castles is reminiscent of the old Altamer, same type of tables and chairs, but a smaller, intimate setting with only 12 tables. The room is stunning, high ceilings and sliding glass doors (which were open) looking out on to... More

We checked in late in the day and went to dinner at the hotel. When we went to bed that evening we discovered that the air conditioning was not working in one of the UPSTAIRS bedrooms. We were told they could not fix it until the next day. So, we had to suffer through one of our two nights stay... More
