Can anyone recommend a luxury hotel in Anguilla that allows for two children to stay in parent's room?
We would like to travel in March 2007 with the kids, but the rates at Malli and Cap Juluca are so high for two rooms during that time. $1700-$2000/day for only two rooms (after taxes etc.) is too high for our budget. Any suggestions?

Can anyone comment about Carimar in comparison to Cap and Malli? The fact that it does not have a pool makes me hesitant to consider it since the kids really like to swim in the pool as well as the ocean when we are on vacation.

Have you looked at CuisinArt? The suites are huge & there's a pool.

Have you looked at KU on Shoal Bay East, although not quite in the same league as "the top three", could be an alternative.

This may not work for your schedule, but if you can wait to travel until the low season rates go into effect, Malliouhana has been offering a wonderful travel deal for the last three years. I imagine they will offer it again this year. Basically, for immediate family members, you can buy one room, get one free. I think it only applies to their lower category rooms, but it's something you might consider. Maybe it's called the Family Package, but I can't quite recall. My husband and I were considering it when we took my mother to the Caribbean for her 70th birthday last year.

Have you considered staying in a villa rather than a hotel? The rates are generally more reasonable and you'll have so much more space. We rented a villa in the Seafeathers area a couple of years ago with our 3 daughters and were very happy with it -- gorgeous pool, too. Check or send an email to Jackie Pascher at Island Dreams Properties to see if there are two or three villas in Seafeathers available for your dates.

Most villas have housekeeping on a daily basis (except Sundays). We've rented three different villas on the island and had great experiences each time.

We have friends who are currently staying at Ku Villas, on Shoal Bay, and are very happy there. It's owned by Cap Juluca, and although it's not in the luxury category, the suites look nice, breakfast is included, and you can't beat being right on Shoal Bay.

KU is not owned by Cap Juluca, it is still owned by an Anguillian family.

However, last year a Management Company owned by Cap Juluca took over the management of Shoal Bay Beach Hotel. A little refurbishment, a new bar and restaurant, a coat of paint here and there, and some new furnishings, landscaping, re-named KU, and a lot of marketing, and the place seem to be "buzzing".

Wonders what the right connections can do!
