We decided to get on solid ground for a few days and Sheriva Villas had availability in a 2 bedroom pool suite. We didn't need an entire villa, and were a bit reluctant to book after reading some of the recent reviews. As this was so last minute, we really didn't know what to expect when we arrived at the Blowing Point ferry, but we were met by a professional taxi driver with our name on a clipboard just outside the exit doors. The drive was only about 5 or 6 minutes to the Sheriva. When we pulled into the gates, we were met by Latoya who had been instrumental in confirming our reservation in such a haste. We had confirmed a suite, but we walked into a massive 2-bedroom VILLA with the most amazing views of St. Martin and the ocean. We had rum punch served by the ever smiling Simone and then took a tour of this magical place. We had a huge infinity pool, suites the size of our apartments back in the US and UK, marble floors, a hot tub, WiFi worked great, we felt very private and safe, breakfasts in the morning were superb, a large gym was downstairs, and a small office area on our main floor (which we hardly ever used because we sat in the jacuzzi most of the day). We asked if we could use a golf cart as the property was fairly empty and they graciously obliged. We used it to go down to the beach during the days when it was really sunny (there were a few days of rain over the period we visited). We had lunch at Smokey's which is really nearby and tasty. Try their lobster sandwich or chicken curry roti. We also dined at Straw Hat and had a superb dinner there. Their wine selections are actually impressive. We stayed in one night and ordered from the Sheriva menu. We had rack of lamb and grilled lobster. Chef Sherry Ann is brilliant!! The villa meal was one of the best meals we had while on the island. We decided to rent a car and explored the island a bit. (Taxis are quite expensive on Anguilla). Shoal Bay East is absolutely breathtaking and we had a cheap and cheerful lunch at Uncle Ernies on the beach. The only downside of our quick getaway was that it rained alot and we didn't get to do more exploring on this lovely little island. We left feeling ready to take on the world, or in this case, the British Virgins. I read other reviews that unless you rent a full villa, you get shoddy treatment. But we definitely didn't experience that. The staff was above and beyond courteous, the rooms were spotless every day and we couldn't have been happier with our short stay at the Sheriva. I can honestly say that Sheriva was an outstanding choice and we hope to return with family and possibly rent a full villa.
