how do you get to anguilla? Do you have to take a puddle jumper?

I don't even know where Anguilla is.

What is a luxury place to stay there?

Look,how about you do a little bit of your own research. Go to Google or one of the other search engines. Do a search for Anguilla tourism. You'll come up with tons of information. Look at a map and figure out where it is. Do a search on this and other forums.
Don't come here expecting everyone else to do your work for you.

There are two ways to get to Anguilla. Fly into Puerto Rico and then a 20 seat plane via American Eagle to Anguilla, not a puddle jumper at all. Or fly into St. Martin and then take the ferry. Not sure how long, I think it's 20 - 30 minutes.

The 3 upscale resorts are Cap Juluca,
Mallihouana and Cuisinart. My preference is Cap Juluca. In my opinion, Anguilla has the most beautiful beaches, excellent food and friendliest people. You may want to do a search here on Anguilla or visit www.caribbean-on-line.com. They have a very active Anguilla forum. Also go to www.news.ai. which has great information.

you can also fly from St. Maarten to Anguilla by Winair, Tyden Air or TransAnguilla.
Caribbean Star flies to Anguilla from several locations in the Caribbean.

If you are coming from Europe, you can fly KLM or Air France to St. Maarten or British Airways and Virgin to Antigua, Barbados or St. Lucia and connect from there.

West End Village on the Island of Anguilla is located at:

63 degrees, 09 minutes, 52 seconds West Longitude
18 degrees, 10 minutes, 35 seconds North Latitude

This is about 12 Kilometres from St. Martin.

See, easy to find.

Thanks for making me laugh. Sitting here in the British Isles, weather is dreadful, and just dreaming of arriving in Anguilla in 2 weeks and 5 hrs time, approximately.

Cap Juluca in Anguilla! Best Resort.

Going from NYC, we arrived in Puerto Rico (about 3.5 hrs) and from there took a smaller plane to Anguilla (about 30 mins). Not bad at all.

Please note though, that ouside the actual resort, there is very little to do and it's quite an underdeveloped island; again, except of course, the actual resort. Have fun!

Not a lover of puddle jumpers, etc, do not mind AA eagle 40 plus seater, never done the one into Anguilla. If you can get a non stop flight into St. Martin, its a snap. I do this all the time out of NYC, or Newark. A 15 minute taxi ride to a 18-20 miute ferry. Part of the fun of the trip. No worries about a connecting flight!
There are 3 main luxury resorts as Nancy said, and I am partial to Cap Juluca, but CuisinArt and Malliouhana are great too.
The island is much more than the resorts. I chose it years ago as it has lots of great dining spots, some of the best beaches, and is easy to get around, without the hassel of a cruise ship crowds, casinos, or McDonalds!
This is an island that you should get out of the resort to at least dine, or explore a bit!
