Where do I begin.
We have been to Anguilla so many times , and have stayed everywhere including private villas.
With each visit we enjoyed our stays, and came home longing for our return, and we would discuss where we might try to stay the next time. We stayed at Malliouhana the longest in return visits, but after our stay at Anacaona , we have found our home for all future visits.
Our biggest thrill was meeting Sue and Robin Ricketts, because we have experienced their perfection in previous stays at other resorts. When you walk the grounds of Anacaona , you see first hand the personal touch of Sue and Robin--the gardens--beautiful, and extremely well maintained. The pools are immaculate , and were updated to perfect condition, and you could always count on a wonderful, clean swim after a full day at the beach. You got the feeling that this was your own personal pool ! Hammocks are everywhere, and a delight to lay on when you were feeling truly relaxed--which was every moment we were there. The staff , unbelievable in every way. I would be rich if I had a nickel for every time they would respond with--" we want to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable."
We stayed in a Junior Suite, which was absolutely, positively perfect in everything that we wanted. Large Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, shower with great water pressure ( plenty of hot water) and double sink vanities.
The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever experienced anywhere. The frette linens were just the right softness--making a good nights sleep a certainty.
The beach lounge chairs were always set up with the umbrellas open--ready to be used. We are early risers and have very rarely experienced that. A young lady sat at the beach hut always ready to bring you a fresh drink, or lunch.And if you needed something they were quick to accomodate you.
Because someone had reserved our room for the last 2 nights of our stay we moved to a 2 bedroom villa, and we toured the 3 bedroom villa--as we always look ahead to our future visits with family. I LOVED the set up of both--bedrooms private and seperated in a screened in porch with lounge chairs, and the common area --extremely comfortable with flat screened TV( each bedroom also has their own flatscreened TV).
Both the Junior Suite and the 2 bedroom villa have patios-- which was our favorite spot each morning for coffee and each evening for a post beach cool drink.
I made a request for a grill, as I bring some meats from the states--it was waiting for me when we arrived on our first day.We love all the restaurants of Anguilla--but when we stay at the beach for sunset we enjoy a home cooked meal.
The weekly cocktail party on Monday evening was wonderful. They served us the drinks of our choice---and the servers watched you and would bring a replacement when you were nearing the bottom of the glass on your first drink. WOW! That is service ! The staff walked among the guests with delicous food.
A good way we can portray this property is that we had friends come to visit us ( they were staying at another property), and they were upset that they hadn't booked Anacaona. We met them on the plane going home, and they stated that they are booking Anacaona in the fall!
They have done everything right here, and it shows in every way.
We always leave Anguilla saying what a wonderful time we had.
After this visit we said it could not have been better--we loved our stay at Anacaona.
As we have always said year in and year out. Anything the Ricketts touch turns to gold or platinum.
It's happened again , and will only get better.
We aren't certain of alot of things, but this is one thing we are 100% certain of.
