Frangipani and Comparable Resorts in Anguilla

Message: Does anyone know about the regular guest rooms at the Frangipani in Anguilla? My wife and I are considering a stay there, but they do not have any suites or the efficiency available for our time period, only a regular guest room without oceanview. I have seen many postings about the suites, but none about the regular rooms. This makes us nervous that they aren't too great and nobody chooses them. We definitely don't need a suite, but we do want a nice room with a few little extras. It makes you feel good when you wake up and come back at day's end.. We're used to getting a small frig and kitchenette in the rooms we've been in before, and they haven't been suites. It appears the Frangipani rooms are basically a bed and a bathroom, and that's it. Should we consider another resort if we cannot get a suite at Frangipani? Any opinions or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all!

They are just rooms -- decent size but compared to the suites, quite a difference.

Helios, if you go to the Frangipani website and click the "Condo Sales" button, scroll down to the bottom, the floor plans for both levels can be accessed there. The individual rooms face the back/side of the property. They are accessed by a foyer/hallway. It's setup this way to convert the 1 bedroom suite into a 2 bedroom easily or just a hotel room.

How about the Junior Suite, did you ask if that was available? That's on the 2nd floor and it's not mentioned on their website, unit A-7. The rates for standard rooms aren't too bad if you don't mind no view.

A couple other alternatives might be:

If you go to below website and click on travel, Caribbean, Anguilla, then on the left side....Accomodations, you can see better pictures of Blue Waters.

The Rendezvous Bay Hotel might also be an option.

If villa below is available and $360/night isn't too much, this villa is fantastic:

Thank you both for your replies, especially Karen, for your suggestions. $360 a night is over budget for us. This is why the Frangipani seemed attractive to us. Their 7 Day package is a good deal. We are also looking for a really nice beach with clear, clean water, so that is key. Everything seems to point to Mead's Bay, which is how we selected Frang. I will check out the others you mentioned. Do you know anything about Shoal Bay Villas? Thanks again for all your help.

When we went to Anguilla in 98 we stayed at the Sonnesta and paid about $200 a night for a garden front room (though it did have partial ocean view). The rooms are very nicely decorated and spacious. The balcony was huge also. I thought the hotel/service/beach was very good.

The Sonesta has been demolished -- as in all gone. In a couple of years, there will be luxury villas & a golf course there. Truly a shame -- it was a lovely property.

Helios: Check out the Carimar Beach Club, which is basically next door to the Frangipani on Meads Bay. They are lovely units, with fully equipped kitchen. There is no restaurant on the premises. The units do NOT have a/c but portable a/c units can be rented for a nominal price per day for the bedroom(s) at night. We got a portable a/c for the bedroom we slept in, but ended up not using it as much as we thought we would. The units lack for nothing and we found the price to be very reasonable.
