“Great house”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

First time on Anguilla and loved it. The Great house was much less expensive then most beachfront places and had everything we needed. Very quaint and comfortable. The property is a bit older but rooms are very large and very clean. Bar, restaurant, pool, beach chairs, beach towels, very friendly staff. Quiet and laid back. Very short taxi ride to ferry terminal. Outstanding beach. Very calm sea. Short beach walk to Bankie Banx Dune Preserve. Anguilla in general is a bit pricey and remote but definitely worth the trip if you are looking for peace and quiet.

The Great House is THE place to stay on Anguilla. Yes,we once had ants in our room and once a centipede....and there are mosquitoes-but they are all over,and never in the room......and, as they say on island: dem gotta eat too! Just wear mosquito milk. It works. We have been here in all weather,months,and years-stayed there about 10 times and will be returning this year as well. It is the real experience. When it pours the sound on the tin roof is so amazing!! No where else like this. When business people go to lunch,they eat here. Also, those who live on St Martin and St. Barts stay here when they stay on Anguilla. Garvey's beach bar,Cuisineart,and Bankies are all on this beach! It is the best beach and the best restau-and the best stafff. My husband and I go every year,if we can. Will is the best! They will honour any request-room change,bed change,lobster lunch on beach,etc., that is reasonable and possible. I went once in May with my daughter. Once I was in the hospital on island and they were super-wonderful. I have celiac disease,and they cook me special gluten-free food with a smile! They are like family. That's it. Go and relax!

Room Tip: Room 104 is great.

didn't know where my friends booked our holiday. didn't know where anguilla was once i found out. arrived at the Anguilla Great House off a recommendation from a friend's grad school friend. i was so happy, it felt like home away from home.

super clean room/bathroom and beds, wifi in common areas, u.s. electricity outlets, portable a.c., a bar and restaurant, adjacent to Garvey's food shack, CuisinArt and another eatery where Banky performs, and on what locals call Anguilla's best beach-- what more could i ask for.. well, let's add stellar 5+ star service, even at what appears to be a modest hotel.

discovered many fellow guests were exchanging # of visit to anguilla stories "this is my 7th time, oh this is our 9th" i will be one of those good folks, and i will return to the Great House.

Room Tip: end units may be nice. we were near the center walkway, no problem. when you walk out from any roo...

unbeatable location on beautiful beach. Beautiful white sand and turquoise sea.
Checking in takes time, the form is quite long and detailed and you have to sign guarantees of 50 US $ per beach towel, patience is required. From the outside the rooms are pretty but inside as someone has already mentioned like a dated US motel, although for the rainy days the cable tv channels are good, the room internet patchy (although available in reception). The bed was big but firm, the furniture a mish mash of styles. The tv cabinet kept getting moved to allow staff to insert a cane dipstick to check water levels in an unplugged hole in our floor. Needless to say we were over run with Mosquitos. Shower isn't great - pressure was poor so for those ladies with long hair - washing hair is a lengthy process.
The service was not great, we noticed after about 10pm all staff appear to have left, and weren't back till 7.30 ish, although there is a courtesy phone for emergencies. Early checkouts take note!
The restaurant on site is apparently not part of the hotel but the owner was more often seen there than in the hotel.very limited menu which although tasty was always served cold. As soon as we hired a car we found stacks of good quality restaurants selling lovely hot food. The beach shack already mentioned serves brilliant ribs and fish - a better option if you don't have a car.
Would I come back yes because the beach is hard to beat but I gather the rices have just risen very steeply so of course I'd check out other options first.

Great for the price. Clean room, comfortable bed, cold a/c. Besides who goes to Anguilla to stay locked up in the room.Had dinner at Caribe Cafe on the property, good but pricey, meal very good and portions were nice size. Close to Sunshine Shack, where drinks and food with Garvey is a must! Had dessert a CuisinArt. Had such a great time that I didn't realize that the mosquitoes were enjoying my stay until I reached home.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 124, short walk to the beach.

The staff is unhurried but warm and polite.
The pool is very white and empty. The concrete deck around it is.....just concrete.
The beach is big and clean,
The rooms are one next to the other, like a strip motel.
Rocking chairs line the cement in front of the rooms.
The history of the place.....is there if your read closely, but "great" is not the word for this place.

Room Tip: call and secure an end unit, if you want air.

We chose the Great House for our accommodations while attending a destination wedding. Given the many choices, we selected it based on it's beach location, more reasonable rates and that it's a fairly short beach walk to the upscale CuisinArt Resort next door -- where you can enjoy some of their dining and spa options. The Great House was more than adequate and you can enjoy a relaxing stay at one of the better beaches on the island. I would most likely choose to stay here again for the reasons stated.
