West Bay Club or OCW?

Today is decision day for a trip this spring to TCI. This is our first time traveling to the island......we are Anguilla regulars and want to try something new. It's hard to think about not being on Shoal Bay East, but hoping Gracie Bay is the perfect remedy. Should we stay at West Bay Club or Ocean Club West? West Bay Club is running a promotion 4th and 7th nights free which is making the price very similar to OCW's 3 bedroom oceanfront for a one week's stay. We are traveling in April and our group is 4 adults and two children ages 9 & 7.

Thank you.

The old flip a coin. OCW IS closer to many amenities, walk to more dinner options and groceries. With a group of 6 that might make it a bit easier.

And here's the big "however." West Bay Club is newer, and more upscale.

We've stayed at Ocean Club West four times during the early 2,000s, and West Bay Club twice -- most recently, two weeks ago. WBC is also in easy walking distance to shoreline snorkeling.

WBC accommodations are definitely on a higher level, but I can understand WhereWhenHow's point of being closer to the "hub" with six people.

Also take a look at Villa Renaissance, Seven Stars, and Regent Grand for accommodations more comparable to West Bay Club, and similar locations as Ocean Club West.

Hope this helps.

Nothing wrong with Ocean Clubs, but West Bay Club is much nicer, much more luxurious, not even in the same league. You will probably need a car to get around from there, but your close to terrific off the beach snorkeling.

I recommend a car no matter what, there are always trade-offs.

To snorkel you need a car from Ocean Club.

All the great restaurants are in clumps, so again need a car for the best ones.

Ocean Club is closer to walk to numerous restaurants and small shopping strips. It is clean and well maintained, just a different category

OCW has a real laid back beachy feel to it. Depends on what you are looking for
