In a couple of weeks, we'll be leaving for our fourth trip to Anguilla in four years and our fourth stay at The Royal Palms. My parents have been going every year for almost a decade. That should tell you all you need to know.
The Royal Palms is, for us, about as close to perfect as you can get. The owners, Tracy and Mary Busby, and their delightful staff have created a place that, from the moment you arrive, feels like home . . . except with better weather! With just six units, it's wonderfully quiet, casual and relaxing, but it's run and maintained with the efficiency and attention of a much bigger place. Need something? Anything? Tracy and Mary can get it for you. They've done just about everything you could imagine for us at some point over our many visits: car rentals, cribs, waterwings, driving permits, recommendations on restaurants and secret beaches, a ride to the ferry. Their daughters have even babysat our kids. And you just know that all of this is done not because they think it's good for business, but simply because they think it's good. That's the way they are and that's the way it always is at Royal Palms.
If you're thinking about a trip to Anguilla, I could not recommend this place more highly.More
