however that everyone has different expectations and different opinions for
their vacation. Look at all the reviews for the resort and get as much
information as you can.

We stayed at the Grand
Palladium Bavarolast year for two weeks. Every building has a mix of rooms.
Their are 8 rooms per building with deluxe, junior suites and some of the
buildings closer to the beach having romance suites. This resort is one of the
best that we have been to. The food, staff and level of service excellent. A+++
for cleanliness. We are returning in April of 2006 for two weeks but staying on
the Palace side as we wanted a room that had more romance. The jaccuzzi is in
the room surrounded by pillars where at the Palladium side the jaccuzzi is in
the bathroom. We had a blast last year and cannot wait to return.
is best to get a room close to the pool as you it does make your treks shorter
from one location to another. The best drinks are at the Lobby Bar and we
enjoyed drinks there each evening before and after supper. There is live
entertainment there each everning. I have been told that they have also opened a
piano bar that has excellent drinks. You can e-mail the resort with a room
request before you go. We sent an e-mail the week before we went and again the
day before we left and requested an upgrade. We were very happy to find that we
had been upgraded to a junior suite. The rooms are very nice and large. The
beach goes on for over 1 mile and the beach vendors are just on the other side.
The disco at the resort next door is open to the public and from what I hear
quite a happening place. Enjoy!
My husband and I stay at Whistling Bird Cottages
on 7 Mile Beach, close to Rondel Village
in the middle. You can get AI at WB. 12 cottages only and a beautiful private beach. We just stayed
there in May and are returning after Thanksgiving. This time we will be bringing
our son to see how beautiful Negril is. I have pictures of WB on this site. Just
an option and it cost me 684.00 per person in 2 bedroom cottage and paid 395.00
for airfare for each. Everyone at WB treats you like you are family. Hope this
We're certainly not experts, but have 6 trips in two years under our belts. Three planned
for 06 and hope to be resident in 2007. We have fallen in love with the
We use AAA Car Rental. Email Alain at
firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote. He has brand new cars, although we always ask
for an older, bashed up at bit one. That way we don't have to worry about dings
and dents on the island. No matter the age, they are always clean and well
maintained. Have always gotten a competitive price ( I usually get quotes from 2
or 3 of the respected locals, but pick Alain). Pick up at airport, great service
- we got a flat tire once and within 15 minutes it was replaced!
We went to Antigua in February for two weeks
and had a wonderful time. WE book our flights and hotel ourselves and stayed at
Hotelin Falmouth Harbour. If you want luxury it is
not for you but if you want a small friendly hotel owned by locals for
years then this is a great hotel. We stayed in a
beach front room which was simple with kitenette and shower room, but it was really
clean and cleaned every day with new towels each day. Feona the owner is very friendly and
has a great barbecue on a Tuesday that it not to be missed.

There are kayaks and sunsails that can be used on the beach,
which is small but they have now got their own pool since we were last there.
Pigeon beach is not too far away and there are some lovely beaches on the island.
The hotel is near a marina and there are supermarkets and a couple of places
to eat in walking distance, however it is easy to catch bus to English
Harbourwhere more is happening.
We hired a car for a week and
would def recommend this wherever you stay in Antigua. Nearby
is a riding stable if you like riding. We loved it but everyone looks for
different things on holiday. Suggest you look at their website. Their superior
rooms upstairs look nice, however we liked the beach front rooms as you can just
walk out of your door and sit on beach. Not greatest for swimming in as close to
marina but great for paddling around in kayaks. You could also look at Grenada , have
not been due to hurricane last year, but they are now recovering and BA have
specials on flights there for $299 including airport taxes. Only other
suggestion is to look on Antiguas toursim site and look at all hotels they have
on offer. If you want any more info feel free to ask, have also been to Tobago
which is lovely, but found where we stayed in Antigua people more friendly.
I went to Cayo Coco using Air
Canada. From Montreal
it was a short flight, about 4 hrs, and the airport is only about 15 minutes away from the hotel. There was
no time change when we arrived in Cuba on the 23rd. But
because in Canada we changed the time on Sat 22nd there was 1
hour difference when we came back on oct 30. The Air Canada rep did tell
me that Cuba also changes the time, but he couldn't tell me exactly when.
I was in Block 20, which really is 2 seconds
away from the Buffet and the adult swimming pool. And contrary to what the
previous person said, my room was always clean, no bugs, I always had clean
towels, bottles of water, shampoo, soap etc. The air conditionning was not
working when I came into the room (or maybe was I not able to use it
correctly..) and within 5 minutes I had someone fixing it.
None of the regular rooms have balcony.
But if you are on the main floor you room has 'backdoor' that gives you access
to the outside were you'll find two chairs and a little table. It gives you some
privacy and I enjoyed it. Only the cabins have a terrace. Tip : a family I met
had a room on the second floor and were not trilled baout it. They went back to
the reception desk to ask to be moved somewhere else. With A SMILE (and 10
pesos) they were moved to a cabin where they enjoyed a balcony and a nice view
of the laguna. You might want to give it a chance...
Last week only one section of the hotel
was open, they were still getting the other section ready. Remember, we were
only 260 visitors that week, and during high season the hotel can easily have
1800... But that was fine, the staff was very friendly and had a lot of time for
us! Everybody is nice and more than willing to make your stay enjoyable.
By the way, I spoke to a lot of people and from
what I heard nobody got sick. The food is good, even if, I admit, at lunch time
it's pretty much always the same (pasta, sandwiches, salad, hamburger &
fries and pizzas). And no, their hamburgers do no taste like McDonalds'! Which
of course isn't necessary a bad thing... Go there with an open mind, don't
expect everything to be exactly like home, smile and you'll have a great time!
My wife and I spent 10 days in Anguilla for our honeymoon in early August 2005. We loved it
and plan to return. It was hot, but only in the low 90's with moderate/high
humidity. I expected the heat, and it was tolerable and kind of nice. A cool
breeze from the water helped most days. Fly into St.
Martin. Don't mess with transfers in San
Juan. You can skip it- so why not. Also, you could
plan a private boat ride from St. Martin to Anguilla. It is a great entry to the
honeymoon. The islands were closer than you would expect
and the trip between them is very cool.
We stayed at the CuisinArt.
It is comparable to the Cap
Juluca in terms of luxury and amenities. The CJ is
way bigger, and was excellent for dinner. The entrance to the resort at night
was excellent- large torches line a drive onto CJ's island- and invoked a sense
of entering an island far out on the water. Angullia was great all
round and we heard complaints only from travelers who were staying in cheap
hotels with loud air conditioners.
CuisinArt on Rendevous Bay was very private
and luxurious. Even if you don't stay there be sure to visit every Tuesday night
while you're in Anguilla. They really mean it when they say all you can eat
lobster barbeque- and believe me, they go way, way beyond lobster. (but lobsters
aren't as big as on Scilly
Cay ) Anguilla is a great place. Find Elvis and
you will not miss a beat of it.
Share your experiences and recommendations. Include your opinions on the comfort, entertainment,
location, and service provided by the hotel you are reviewing. The best reviews
include not only what you liked and disliked, but also the reasons behind your
opinions. Tell others what's hot and what's not. Thank
