“Peaceful and Relaxing...outstanding service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

My wife and I visited Anguilla on vacation the last week of June 2012 and we stayed at the CuisinArt for 7days. We had an absolutely wonderful week. The hotel grounds are perfectly kept and look exactly like the pictures on the website. The staff was hard working, friendly and appeared genuinely concerned about our vacation experience. We utilized the help of the concierge daily and she (Karen) was invaluable in providing restaurant recommendations and reservations.

The room was a beautiful, large junior suit on the 3rd floor with a balcony that overlooked the beach and the amazing Rendezvous Bay. It had a large bath, open shower and a private sundeck off the bath for drying yourself in the sun. The suite also had a large walk in closet with a vanity that allowed us to keep our clutter out of the main room.

The stay came with a complimentary full buffet breakfast that we both enjoyed daily. Again the restaurant service was warm, friendly and very attentive. And the food was fresh with plenty of variety. We also dined in the Japanese restaurant one night and had very fresh sushi.

Activities that we enjoyed at the hotel included a beautiful, large, clean, un-crowded pool with constant available pool service, chairs and umbrellas. (No getting up at 5 AM to reserve a spot at the pool or beach.)

The spa was really exceptional with great relaxation massages. My wife and I used the large un-crowded exercise room in the mornings daily (they also had daily group complimentary exercise activities).

The beach and the ocean in front of this resort are really spectacular.

We do not golf so I can’t review that part of the resort.



All in all we had a perfect experience at the CuisinArt and we will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: High floor with ocean view near the center of the resort would be the best area to request.

I traveled here with my adult daughter for a 1-week getaway. This resort was recommended to me by a friend who travels extensively and enjoys the finer things in life. We took the charter boat from St Martin to Anguilla. I will caution people that the boat is not large and stepping in can be challenging especially if the water is choppy. Keep in mind that you are on a speed boat and in open water, it can be bouncy so be prepared. There are small, really small planes or the public ferry.

Arrival in Anguilla was fine, they shepard you through the process and then on to the van. It was a short ride to the hotel. The building and grounds are beautiful and impressive. The lobby is open and your first look is straight through the pool to the ocean, quite lovely. We had a first floor Jr Suite and despite calling ahead and validating at check in, there was only one bed in the room. The solution was to bring in an extra fold away bed. It was not what I expected from a hotel of this caliber however my daughter was comfortable so we didn't let it spoil our time especially once we started popping the fresh cherry tomatoes we found waiting in a bowl with a welcome note from the hotel. The room was enormous with tile floors and simple furnishings, the bathroom is gorgeous, huge shower and soaking tub, glass block wall to let the light in, large double vanity and seperate closet for the toilet, very indulgent. The patio was large and had comfortable furniture. The first floor may be considered Oceanfront however we could barely see the ocean, there is so much scrub in front of the room that you couldn't see anything except a cat chasing who knows what through the underbrush.

The beach is why we came and it did not disappoint. Another reviewer noted the worn beach chairs and I have to agree. The sand was powdery and soft and the water crystal clear. A beautiful way to spend the day. A couple of days we opted for the pool, very comfortable lounges with push towels. Excellent bar service, we especially enjoyed the all the flavors of daquiries, so good. Every day at 3:00 is the sorbet and biscotti treat, a welcome treat.

We ate primarily at the hotel, we had plans to try restaurants off premise but never quite made it. The food was good, I wouldn't say outstanding, but we found plenty of things we enjoyed. Several nights we ended up eating at the bar so we could enjoy relax and talk to others. The breakfast buffet was fine, there was enough variety and selection and the service was excellent.

So what made this not perfect. In a word, it was quiet, almost too quiet. The hotel was not at capacity, there was no life, no music. This is a very sleepy resort. It probably did not help that we had several days of rain, and not just a little rain, buckets of it. There was absolutely nothing else to do but read and play cards, there were no other diversions. It was nice that the resort provided large umbrellas to cover you walking to and from the main building. Perhaps a married couple would appreciate the atmosphere, I think my daughter and I just like a little more action.

The beach here is just not what it needs to be to compete in Anguilla. It is much less deep of a beach than many others in Anguilla. It is more windy, wavy, and rocky as well. It is only slightly cheaper than other top hotels on the island but it is significantly less desirable in most every way. Most rooms don't face the ocean. The restaurants and lounges are much less comfortable. The staff isn't as friendly. For example, we went to the beachside lounge area and were brought menus. After looking at the menu and the feel of the place, we decided to just have drinks and eat elsewhere which apparently disappointed the waiter who seemed offended and a bit angry at the news even though the entire area was devoid of other customers. It just has the feel of a place that needs a major renovation and new management.

I had read many reviews and after years or exploring possibilities in the Caribbean islands, I decided to visit the resort.
By being one of the Leading Hotels of the World, I expected that everything was going to be found almost perfect at the resort. We stayed at another leading hotel the last two years and everything was almost perfect there. Even though I could have improved/changed a few things, we had an overall good stay (in spite of the winds that were present every day at beach)

Service/Restaurants:
Since we did not select the All inclusive option this time, in order to try different options and also dine outside the hotel (As we had been recommended), it was good that the website listed the restaurants and menus, in order to have some information in advance. However, once there, we found that the quality among the restaurants was inconsistent so were the prices.
For example, the Italia restaurant, even though located a few minutes by shuttle, inside the golf course was a very good option for lunch, whilst Cafe Med located a few steps from the beach, was not. We found that the service and meal quality was not good at Cafe Med after having lunch twice, and at Italia not only the meals but the personnel were more effective and nice.
Italia is also nice for dinners, very quiet, nice ambience. The calamari salad, the risotto and lobster ravioli were very good, so as the tiramisu.
Santorini: we had dinner there three times. Very good service (mainly the guy from Santo Domingo) we had tuna, scallops, the fish of the day, an appetizer of the day, and a full lobster. All very good! The tiramisu was good but not as good as the one at Italia. The breads and olive oil with basil leaves were so good.
Breakfasts at Cafe med were good, some options were not at the buffet but needed to be ordered for example the omelettes, and smoked salmon. We did not order room service for breakfast.
I expected to find similar meals presentation/quality across the restaurant, moreover for the vegetables since they are provided by the local hydroponic farm.

Wines: different prices even for the same wines across the restaurants. Different wine lists depending on the restaurant. Santorini had the largest list. In general, waiters did not understand about wines and could not really recommend when asking them about wines we did not know. I would have expected a more general wine list across all the restaurants in the resort.

The beach area: sufficient umbrellas and lounge beach chairs; however, the lounge chair covers looked old. Personnel were a bit slow on setting them up every morning.

The room: it was nice to have a room on the top floor. The views were beautiful and the fact that there was a mosquito net allowed us to leave the window open during night to hear the sea waves. The bathroom area was large, but the bathtub did not include jacuzzi. I would have expected to include one (even though the website listed: marble bathroom, only)

We visited the hydroponic farm. It was a really nice tour.

We did not visit the Spa for treatments.

Dining out:
We went to Mango's. Beautiful location by the sea. Very good meals, good ambience, good service. I recommend it.
We also went to Tasty's, a local cuisine restaurant served by the owner, very kind guy, who is also the chef. Good meals, no sea view. It was warm inside and you could smell all the meals prepared at the kitchen, though.

Room Tip: If you go to a lower floor you could miss some sea views. The top floor was really good but the terr...

This was my second stay here, the first was 7 years ago. I'm happy to report that it's still a great resort from A to Z: he location, the facitlites, the property, the employees. I don't even bother looking at other places when I plan to visit Anguilla, there's no need to look any further. This is it!

We spent last week at the Cuisinart. It was our second visit to this property and even though it had been 10 years since our last visit - each visit was perfection.

When you check in here the staff welcomes you to paradise and they're not kidding.

This is a beautiful property - beautifully maintained, excellent staff, great rooms, great food and a wonderful beach. The property is laid out so that you can enjoy it without ever feeling like you are sharing the experience with crowds of people.

Our room was newly updated and very clean and inviting. We stayed in one of their junior suites in the group of buildings that face the beach. These rooms have an unobstructed view of the beach with private balconies / patios. If you open the door to the balcony you can hear the ocean, but we never heard our neighbors. The balconies / patios have tables, chairs and at least 2 lounges. The rooms that we've stayed in have large marble bathrooms with tubs and showers.

The staff here is wonderful. Everyone greets you, most will know your name and all will handle requests with smiles and efficiency.

We were too lazy most nights to change to eat at the various restaurants on the property and chose to eat room service. We ordered meals from all of the property restaurants and all were excellent. Be sure to be at the pool around 3 each afternoon since they serve the best sorbet we've ever had at that time.

We have traveled extensively and have yet to find a property that can top the Cuisinart. Our goal is to return to this lovely property soon.

overall very quiet resort, went may 21-june 1st 2012, got the junior suite, down time so the rooms were slightly cheaper,read somewhere you could get upgrades but didn't really want to bother with it, rm 907 got the great view, close to everything parking and pool,ask for upper rooms, pool was nice and quiet. golfed but played horribly~100bucks,played a little bit of tennis, other than that pretty much chilled by the pool and beach different days. and took 2 different day trips to st marteens,

my wife and I are kind of foodies so we tried a little bit of everything local and resort.

Anguilla overall is quite island, rented a car drove around the island planned out our dinners and such. not much a of night life couple of places had live music thurs fri sat but all in all everything else was close, everything seem to be closed or quiet by 10ish so if your looking to just chill for a few days perfect, the resorts beach was a bit windy, everyone was very helpful and nice, the complimentary breakfast got real old really quickly, rooms service breakfast was like 14 bucks for 2 eggs, but free for everything else. But you can go to breakfast in the morning and the eggs was free??? so paid one morning (hungover) and all other days we went to the complimentary breakfast but it was the same thing everyday you dont really have a choice. every tues night was lobster buffet night so all the other restaurants were closed. the Japanese hibachi place was over priced food was so-so at best dont expect a show they just cook the food in front of you,2 people and a bottle of saki was~225+ dollars,all the local places were awesome, ken's bbq,B and D's bbq literally a fri-sun pop up tent, tasty's(johnny cakes were the best here),blanchards beach side cafe awesome food then the restaurant side had Delicious key lime desert and some type of cracked chocolate coconut, On The Rocks craw-fish was amazing cheaper than most places waiter there will bring you some crazy different shots/drinks food was good, silly cay was a small family beach island food and drinks were good but slighty expensive so plan a day, public ferry stops running at 7 so going to and from st martins for the day was good we had enough time on our honeymoon to spend 2 different days, but the ferrys cost was ~40/ person so make a day of it and get back around 530-6ish luckily traffic wasn't too bad but one bad accident they your screwed. we took Funtime Charters prepaid 105 both ways for 2 people so getting there and returning was not much of a hassle.

if we could do it over we would spend the ~3-4 days max thurs-sun so you can catch the BBQ's places, then 3-5 days on st marteens. shopping was nice in phillisburg, rented a car checked out couple of beachs some on the french side are topless so be aware, got good food, cuban cigars in phillipsburg were legit,(cigar emporium) habanos certified. got few boxes of Cohiba Behike 52 so ask then for a deal, brought one with box, 2 without boxes smoked one there at the store worth every single dollar!!!! all in all great islands, st marteen's definitely a bit more busier and cusinart was a good time to just relax and chill...and not worry about are we missing out on other stuff.... would go back but stay for shorter and plan out the meals so we dont miss any of the local stuff.

Room Tip: ask for upper rooms
