Ku or Frangipani Anguilla

Hi-

If money was no object- which hotel would you prefer to stay at?

We are beach people. During the day, we like to hang out and lay on the beach and swim. And then at night, go out to dinner at various restaurants. Nightlife is not that important to us.

Any comments, positive or negative, are welcome!

Frangipani. Meads Bay Beach is gorgeous and there are numerous wonderful restaurants very close by: Straw Hat, Blanchard's, Picante, Mango's. We stayed at Frangipani before it was taken over and renovated and we loved it then. It has since become quite pricey. I would consider staying at Ku though as well. Little more action on Shoal Bay beach..beach bars, snorkeling reef. The rooms at Ku appear to be more modern and simplistic. But it is more affordable.

Another vote for Frangipani. I have only been to Anguilla once, but we visited both hotels and IMHO Frangipani seemed a lot nicer and there are a lot more restaurants nearby from what I could tell. Although the island is small, it still takes longer than what I thought to get from one end to the other. If money were an object, though, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Ku as the beaches are amazing at both.

I agree -- the dining on the west end (where Frangi is) is superb! Trattoria, Straw Hat, Mango's, Smokeys, Picante, Jacala and Meads Bay is glorious.

There is no comparison. Frangi -- hands down.
Ku has too many issues to even seriously consider it.
Besides, all the best supply of restaurants is on the West end. Couple this with the gorgeous Mead's Bay beach and you've got a winner.

By changing and adding the other two I would go to Cap. It is awsome, great beach and quiet enough for relaxing and romance. If I were comparing the other two Frangi is by far the choice because of the redo. Both are on fantastic beaches. Ku is more of a party place and loud through the night.

If money is no object, go to Cap. If the choice is Frangi or Ku, go to Frangi. I think Cap's beach is the best, and it will be quieter and more private than Shoal Bay East (Ku), quieter and less windy than Rendezvous Bay (Cuisi) and more luxurious than Frangi
