We've just returned from our 4th visit to Anguilla and 3rd stay at Lloyd's B&B and it truly holds a special place in our hearts. Lloyd's is centrally located on the hill above Crocus Bay in a more residential neighborhood, a short walk or drive down a steep hill to where you'll find a lovely beach and wonderful, casual restaurant (Da'Vida Bay Side Bar & Grill) for lunch with beach chairs & kayak rentals; as well as a nice, upscale restaurant (Da'Vida Restaurant) for a special dinner by the sea. There's a great little art gallery (Savannah Gallery) around the corner on Coronation Ave. to explore, as well as small grocery within walking distance. Lloyd's has small, but cozy and well-appointed rooms ---each with own en suite bathroom & different Caribbean influenced decor -- accessible with an old-school skeleton key.
Lloyd's is a real gem in that the staff and owners Vida & David truly strive to make your stay relaxing, enjoyable and offer true Anguillian hospitality in every way. Made to order breakfasts are nicely presented and delicious. Merline is always interested in what beach or adventures you may explore each day as she serves the morning meal, at your leisure whenever you arise. Breakfast here is a time to connect and meet other guests, both short-term and long-term travelers to Lloyd's. We have met many interesting people at the Lloyd's breakfast table, a mix of young & more-seasoned travelers, which makes the start to the day quite memorable, as well as helpful when sharing Anguilla info on what to see, do or more importantly, where to eat. Lloyd's also has a communal roof top deck that is a quiet, nice place to bring up a nightcap to see the Anguillan night sky. They can provide beach towels, travel cooler, phone for local dinner reservations, & arrange for car rental -- Merline and Hosepha are always so helpful.
Only draw-back: no, it's not ON the beach, but within a 3 min. walk down to Crocus Bay beach. Having a rental car will ensure you can explore the other fabulous beaches of Anguilla, a must-do.
The common-area breakfast tables and living room space are great places to sit & feel the trade winds while you read a book or chat with other travelers...and Lloyd's has WiFi now, so you can be plugged in to your smartphone or ipad if need be. You know you've found a special place when you leave and hug the staff with a "farewell" until next time. We can't help but feel we have a lovely, safe and calm home base in Anguilla when staying at Lloyd's & are glad to share the "Lloyd's secret" with others.
