KU

Just returned from Ku. For the money, the best bargain in the Caribbean. It's on the best beach, the people who work there couldn't be more helpful, and the rooms are great. You need a car, but the driving is easy.

I am also interested in hearing about the renovations of the rooms(done very well), and is the pool kept very clean? We stayed there when it was SBBH, and it really needed this overhaul/new owners. Last July when they were doing the renovations the pool was a mess, and there were reports on TA for several months after opening that it was not kept well. It is such a pretty pool, and right there on the gorgeous beach. Just curious about your take on these things, Thanks Carol

The rooms are large, airy, and bright. There are a few places that need a paint touchup, but overall very nice. The AC works very well. The beach is spectacular. There is a dive shop on the premises. They do snorkeling trips, etc. The pool is lovely and very clean. The restaurant was very good, although we ate only one meal there. I wouldn't eat breakfast there. It is a small buffet of rolls, cereal, and juice, and it costs $19. Go to the market on the property and buy juice, eggs, fresh croissants, and have breakfast in your room for one tenth the price.

Beachluver,
Ku still has the same ownership, just new management and marketing.

Thanks dxrx and ALR
All in all it sounds like the place got what it really needed. We commented when we were there if they would revive the rooms and add a few things to the property(bar/shop etc) what a nice small resort it cold be. I am considering it for our April trip. We have been to Anguilla 4 times(La Sirena, SBBH, Cap Juluca, Cusinart)and adore the island!! Thanks Carol
