Anguilla - Trip Reports

Cap Juluca, Beaches and Places to Eat

April 1999 - 3 night stay - by Andy Arden (marand@banet.net).

This was our third trip to Anguilla so it was only 3 nights, we were on St. Lucia for 3 nights and then heading to St. Barts for 6 nights. This trip was in celebration of our 15 year wedding anniversary.

Our Flight out from St. Lucia to Anguilla was via Antigua with Liat. The flight was on time and without any problems. Upon leaving customs we were met at the airport by the Cap Juluca representative who had a taxi waiting for us.

Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted by guest relations and handed rum punches to enjoy during check in. Our Villa was a 1BR Suite with a huge Bedroom that opened to the beach and a large beautiful bathroom - separate shower that led to a private sun bathing area, huge double tub - enclosed toilet and bidet area and dual sinks.

We had lunch at their George's Restaurant and it was good $40.00 for 2.

Continental Breakfast was served every morning on time on our patio. In-Room refrig is well stocked with water, soda, beer etc. no charge.

The Hotel is Great and the service was excellent.

Rented a car from Thrifty nice 4WD Jeep type with electric windows etc. @ $ 54/day. Drive on the LEFT.

We ate at the following restaurants:
Note: lobsters on the Island are not running to well

Ripples - Great Coconut Shrimp and Lobster Pasta. Good red house wine. Jackie owns this restaurant. Service was ok. Cost for 2 $ 70.00

Straw Hut - old Smugglers - Great Food and Service. Tuna was great and Crayfish was excellent - Rated top 50 in the world by Conde Nest or Carib Travel. Cost for 2 $ 115.00

Trattoria - old Paradise Cove in Shoal Bay West - Great Northern Italian Food. Had lunch here cost $ 52.00 for 2. Service was Great.

Barrel Stay - Food and service was good. Lobster was so, so see note above.

Beaches -

Shoal Bay be prepared to rent a chair $ 3 to $ 4 each Great Beach. Have a Beer and Ribs at Uncle Ernies $6.+

The hotel's beach is also one of the nicest plus they serve drinks, cold towels & afternoon sherbet.

Scuba Diving - I tried to contact Shoal Bay Scuba but they never answered any of my e-mails and when I called them they told me their new dive boat was out of the water.

I went scuba diving with Anguillian Divers - Meads Bay - 264-497-4750 Anne was the divemaster for our two tank dive $ 70. each. Gosterdiep (dutch) Wreck first dive and our second dive was Anuilita (Little Anguilla) reef . Great Diving and friendly people. Stephanie works the office and does weekend dives. Christopher also came along on the reef dive. They are French but speak Great English and are very friendly. Manta Ray swam right under us and let us pet her/him. Tell them Andy says hi.

This Island has great, very friendly people and they are all very helpful with answering a question. The beaches and restaurants are great.

Thanks to Andy for this trip report ...
