Fodor's Expert Review Frangipani Beach Resort

Meads Bay, West End Village, n/a Anguilla, AI2640, Anguilla

Located on the beautiful Champagne sands of Meads Bay, this Mediterranean-style property has a welcoming and laid-back feel, and the friendly service immediately sets you at ease. There are kayaks, paddleboards, snorkeling equipment, and two Hobie Cats, as well as a tennis court, a small spa, and two swimming pools. The resort offers beach-hopping on their own motorized boat, the FrangiCat. Accommodations are all different, but some are small, ranging from tropically decorated rooms to three-bedroom suites, and a four-bedroom villa with its own private pool. Larger units have full kitchens and laundry facilities and are well suited for families and for longer stays. The units have modern pastel colors, nice upholstery, updated kitchens, and marble baths. Special packages and rates that include meals and excursions are often available. The on-site boutique, Petals, is stocked with great beachwear, and the on-site restaurant, Straw Hat, an island favorite, is a draw on its own. Try to get a room in the newer building, above the restaurant, for the best views of the perfect beach below.
