Marquis is fabulous. The rooms are spacious, the staff is very hospitable, and the views are spectacular. Nestled up in the mountains above Anse Marcel, the hotel provides great views of the water and Anguilla in the distance. Each room has a private balcony which made me feel more like a local than a tourist. A rental car is needed to stay here if you wish to have the flexibility to see the island. However, parking was never a problem and they can even facilitate a rental car. Also, they do have a pool onsite but it is very small. However, with access to the beach at Anse Marcel, why would you choose to stay at the pool?
Each morning we had a wonderful breakfast of pastries, fresh fruit and choice of coffee or tea. Additionally, they served a variety of jams (coconut, guava, mango) with the meals that can be purchased on site if desired (or find the local grocery outlet).
Marquis is conveniently located by Ilet Pinel (5 minutes), Grand Case (10 minutes), and Orient Beach (15 minutes). They gave us the perfect trip of relaxation and local flavor.
