We stayed in a Junior Suite for 6 nights and really enjoyed it, it was very pleasant and comfortable, and we highly recommend it. All of the staff are friendly and helpful, make a huge effort, and seem to really care. Anguilla is an expensive island and the Anacaona provided (relatively) mid-priced accommodations with good value, in a terrific location on Meads Bay beach. The beach was an easy 1-2 min walk down a gravel road from our room. Our beach had a beach bar, lounge chairs and umbrellas. There was no problem getting a chair or umbrella. The beach felt totally safe, I never worried about leaving my bag while we went in the water. Meads Bay is a gorgeous long white sand beach with turquoise water; however the water can be be a bit rough with breaking waves. There are lots of good restaurants along the beach.
Our suite was on two floors connected by a spiral staircase. The first floor had a sitting area, a nice clean modern kitchen, and a covered patio. We loved being able to make our own breakfast and have it out on the patio. The patio view is of the pretty gardens with lot of flowers; no ocean view. Upstairs is the bedroom and a huge bathroom with separate shower and giant deep tub (loved the local bath soaps.) The bedroom had an ocean view; it had sliding glass doors with screens, and you could hear the ocean, but there is no balcony off the bedroom where you can step outside. The property was quiet in the evening and I had no trouble sleeping. (The bed linens did not feel like “Frette linens”.) We had flat screen TVs in living room and bedroom with cable, A/C and ceiling fans, and all worked fine. The grounds are pretty and attractively landscaped and cared for. (Yes some leaves were brown, but its a hot climate with very little rain, and water is a precious resource, and I’d much rather have plenty of water for a shower than use tons of water to keep every plant green.)
The hotel had very friendly and personal service. They stocked our fridge with items we requested in advance, booked our trip on Sail Chocolat, and booked our rental car. (But I suggest confirming requests of this sort just for peace of mind.) I really enjoyed talking with the hotel manager at the Manager’s reception. I saw all generations at this hotel, from older folks who had been coming here for many years, to families with young children. The two pools looked clean and inviting although we did not use them because we were at the beach every day. Overall we were really happy with this hotel for our vacation!
[Regarding a previous review: I am not sure that the name “boutique” means the same thing here as in the US. We’ve stayed in “boutique” hotels in the US that are modern high end properties (e.g., Kimpton), and this hotel is not that. Here I think the name “boutique” means a small independently run property with friendly personal service and local flavor, but it is not ultra modern.]
