Frangipani Beach Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We just returned from another wonderful vacation at the Frangipani. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. It is small, so the beach and pool are never crowded. This makes the overall vibe of the hotel extremely relaxed. The adjacent restaurant, The Straw Hat, has a beautiful view of the beach and the food is excellent. The staff at the hotel and the restaurant could not be nicer or more attentive. We enjoyed a beach hopping boat trip organized through the hotel. It was an ideal beach vacation! I can't wait to go back.
Also, they are in the process of building a fitness center, which should be up and running by the time we go back!

This is a very small and luxurious resort, which never gets crowded. I think there may only be 25 rooms, Or less. The infinity edge pool is right at the edge of the beach. Drinks are served on the beach or at the pool by an attentive staff from the adjoining wonderful beach bar, the straw hat. Almost all the rooms have an ocean view, but if that is important to you be sure to reserve one that has the view. Words are in adequate to describe the setting so I attach pictures below. We have already signed up for next year. You will enjoy not only this resort, but the entire island. I was traveling with a broken arm and could not walk to a very nearby supermarket. One of the staff immediately volunteered to take me there. When is the last time that ever happened? A great place.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2B. Wonderful ocean view but only for two. If you have more traveling with you con...

We just returned from the best vacation at Frangipani Resort. This is a quiet small boutique type hotel with very accommodating service. Very few families which we like. Clientele is mostly adults so quiet, peaceful on the nicest beach in Anguilla. We will return here again for sure!

My wife and I just returned from our 4th stay at the Frangipani. As always, we had a fantastic time. We now have a 16 month old little boy so it was great to enjoy a truly relaxing week away from our hectic day-to-day lives. Being our 4th visit to the FBR we know what to expect so we knew it was exactly the relaxing get-away we needed.

I have stated this in previous reviews but to summarize the reasons we keep coming back to Anguilla and specifically the Frangipani Beach Resort - the beach and sea are stunningly beautiful on Meads Bay, no crowds to contend with at all on the Resort's beach, the staff of the Resort is friendly and helpful - the staff honestly feels like family to us after all these visits. In fact, all the people in Anguilla are genuine and friendly. It feels like everyone on the Island wants to make sure you have a great time.

The highlight of the trip was the boat excursion we took with the new Managers of the FBR - Shannon and Scott. They are a delightful young couple and they certainly know how to take care of their guests. Along with four other Resort guests we cruised out to Prickly Pear Cay, then to Davida for a delicious lunch and then snorkeled in Little Bay. Just a great day!

The Resort is currently redoing the reception area and adding a gym. This will be a nice addition and I will enjoy the gym on future visits while my wife sleeps in. I was a little concerned there may be some construction noise due to this project but I was never disturbed by this at all. The only thing I heard was the soothing sounds of the Sea!

My wife and I will definitely be back to the Frangipani Beach Resort as soon as we can. Our only question now is when do we start to bring our little boy with us.

Only stayed one night as we were staying the next week at a villa at the Viceroy down the beach. We arrived after dark from San Jaun but were greeted and escorted to our room. It was very well appointed with a little patio and just a few steps from the beach. The resort restaurant was called Straw Hat and we were able to be seated at a table on the patio next to the beach with a couple guys playing island music. It was so nice to be able to relax and enjoy our first evening after a long travel day. We had to check out and move to the villa the next morning. Instead of calling a cab for us, the manager just popped our luggage into his car and drove us there. The resort is very nice and right on the beach but the two managers were so nice it made our brief stay just perfect. Thanks

My husband and I just came back from our dream vacation at Frangipani. We really have nothing bad to say about this hotel. Everyone is so accomodating from the front desk girls, to the pool guys, and the staff. Scott and Shannon who manage the property are so cute and nice. The Straw hat restaurant on property is perfect for every meal, you could eat here every day if you wanted. Perfect place. We will definitely be back! Tracy & Doug

Our experience with FBR began months before our actual vacation and with the booking of our room with Candice (concierge). Candice was insightful, provided honest feedback on our questions about the rooms, and was eager to assist us in any way possible (from providing the ferry schedule to reserving dinner reservations). It was a pleasure working with her and she went above and beyond to help plan our vacation.

We booked room C-2 (no-view room). The room was perfect for me and my husband. It was well-appointed with a flat-screen tv, fridge with complimentary water, safe, beautiful bathroom and shower, the most comfortable bath robes, and a great vaulted ceiling. We also had a lovely patio. Even though the room did not have a view of the ocean, it was literally 15 steps to the beautiful sand. We were never in the room more than an hour during the day - just to get ready for the beach and dinner. We opted for this less expensive option and to use our savings on the incredible dining on the island. The room was more than adequate for us and we will book this room again in the future. FBR itself is quaint and quite - perfect for what we wanted. The grounds are beautifully kept, the beach palapas always available, and the pool incredibly inviting. The breakfast credit towards Straw Hat is also a huge plus. (Straw Hat was just ranked as a top 10 restaurant in the Carib - I will post a separate review of Straw Hat). Having the Straw Hat on property was perfect. We literally went in our bathing suits to breakfast, walked 10 steps to a palapa, and began ordering drinks from the Straw Hat beach assistants. Awesome. Everything about FBR is wonderful. It is the kind of place that you can go and truly relax, be yourself, and completely unwind. I could go on and on about the FBR itself, but it is the people, the staff of FBR, that deserve the most praise in this review.

The minute we stepped on property, we were greeted with warm smiles and cold rum punches. The management team, Scott and Shannon, were beyond hospitable and generous. From the moment you meet this lovely couple, you feel as though you have made lifelong friends. They truly take the time to know you, to relate to you, and to see how they can make your experience the best on the island. The beach assistants, Ezzy and Rasharn, were equally as eager to please. Rasharn took us on an incredible ride on the HobyCat on Meads Bay...pointing out the beautiful homes, and providing us with his picks for dinner and nightlife (we later met up with him at Pumphouse and had an awesome time). Scott and Shannon invited us, as well as other guests, to cruise around the island on the Relentless. What a treat! It was by far the highlight of our trip. Even the housekeeping staff, Patricia in particular, went out of her way to know me and my husband. Every person that we had the pleasure of meeting and knowing at FBR truly left an impression on us. The staff is so incredibly kind, warm, and beyond helpful. I consider myself blessed to have met such wonderful people. It was so refreshing to meet such genuine people.

We look forward to returning the Frangipani year after year to see our new friends and their smiling faces.
