Any RECENT trips to Anguilla, Barbados (Sandy Lane) or DR (Casa de Campo)?

Jump to last reply

Three families looking for "great golf and beautiful beaches" vacation have narrowed it down to the following. We're going late July or early August. When I search specifics, other than Anguilla, there aren't any RECENT forums. We've found beautiful villas in our price range at each of these destinations. Rather than post in 3 different forums, I'm combining...maybe that's a mistake.

Let me describe what I call "beautiful beaches: White sand, turquoise water and picturesque. It would be nice if they have food & beverages and offer water sports/activities, too since we have ages 16-27 traveling with us. It would be a bonus if there's also a quiet, less populated beach to visit as well.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (Casa de Campo) * I know the golf is fantastic...no problem there. My concerns are there's only one small beach there. Is it safe for the girls to travel away from the resort to enjoy different beaches during the day? It there really a lot to do at the resort such as water sports, etc.? The website shows there's lots to do but my fear is getting there and it being deserted and or many things "shut down" due to the economy in DR. I'd rather hear from people who've experienced it recently.

BARBADOS (Sandy Lane) * Yes, we actually found a beautiful villa in our price range. Again, great golf here. In old forums, I read where some of the beaches have "washed away" and aren't what they used to be. Also have read that Sandy Lane is "not worth it"...that's probably for those staying at the hotel. Also have heard that some areas in Barbados are not as safe as Anguilla. Is there plenty to do including some "nightlife" in this area of Barbados?

ANGUILLA * We've found an awesome villa in Anguilla on the southeast side of the island in Sile Bay. The owner has recommended Savannah Bay & Shoal Bay East for beaches nearby...as well as the Sandy Ground area for "nightlife" at Pumphouse & Johno's, etc. I've read there was a hurricane last year that damaged Cuisinart's beach and some surrounding areas. Is this true for other beaches in Anguilla?

I'll post my question about the golf course in Anguilla in a different forum. Thanks!
