I visited St. Maarten and Anguilla for the first time in early June 2013. After spending three very busy days in St. Maarten, I was looking forward to some relaxation in Anguilla. That is exactly what I got. As soon as we arrived at Anacaona Boutique Hotel, we were treated like queens. The cold towel we received at check in that smelled of almonds was a refreshing treat. I was able to meet and speak with the reservations manager, Kenisha and she was a completely delightful as was the young lady who assisted with our check in. I cannot recall her name but she was very welcoming to us after the scary ferry right over form Marigot. It made us feel at home right away.
Check in was fast as we were only one of a few rooms occupying the hotel at the time during their slow season. We arrived in the superior room and I was amazed at how spacious it was. I loved having the separate living room area with the TV. The room was also spotlessly clean. Shortly after check in, we were greeted with a welcome bottle of champagne. The service at Anacaona is top notch all the way. We went to dinner and were really in the mood for burgers and fries. It was not listed on the dinner menu but the amazing Chef Kevin made the burgers and fries for us and it was delicious all the way down to the homemade hamburger bun. We sat at the bar and chatted with Tweety over the yummy house made fruit punch. She was very friendly and told us about her many years at Anacaona and that her twin sister and mother worked there. It was definitely a welcoming family environment. We discovered there was a record premiere party the night before so they went from a packed house to only four rooms occupied. I thought it was wonderful that even though it was low season, we still had everything available to us and Tweety even took the time to set up the entire restaurant area for dinner including candles on the tables.
Breakfast was included in our stay and it was perfect. The breads and fruit were so fresh. We had the pleasure of meeting Tweety’s mom, Prudence and she was an absolute joy. We spent the day on the gorgeous Meads Bay Beach and then lounged at the pool for a while. We ventured out to Blanchard’s Beach Shack for a late lunch. Although Blanchard’s was great, we regretted getting full as the manager’s reception at Anacaona was starting when we returned and the chicken wings and fish bites looked and smelled amazing. I did taste a little bit and wish I could’ve eaten more.
All in all, our stay at Anacaona was wonderful and relaxing. The people are extremely friendly including our great bellman, Watson. I will definitely be back and hope to send some clients there soon. Thank you Anacaona and Anguilla for the wonderful hospitality I experienced on your beautiful island!
