Sydans Apartments and Villas
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Island Harbour
Reviewed 2 March 2013

We recently stayed at a villa property and loved it! We were right on the beach at Sandy Ground, close to the shipping pier. Our view was nice, blocked only by the sea grape trees. The villa was very comfortable and we slept with the doors open every night-- no need to use the AC at all. The kitchen was quite useable and included basic kitchen utensils,etc. The porch was great for lounging and reading. This is a no frills villa, which is just what we like, and a great place for the money. It is in a great location on the island which made driving anywhere easy. Anne was very welcoming and helped us get settled. We would definetly stay here again and look forward to doing so. Thanks, Anne, for your hospitality!

I love the location of Sydans Guesthouse, it is close to lots of restaurants and bars. The beach is across the street from the property, Ann was a gem she is very easy to talk to very friendly her personality is great for an owner. The place was a good price the loft apartment was big, in Anguilla you really need a car, there’s no public buses like some of the other islands. The beaches are beautiful with very clear water. I would stay with Sydans on my next trip to Anguilla. Thanks Ann for your hospitality.

I only spent a couple of nights at Sydans but had a lovely stay, Anne couldn't have been nicer or more hospitable.

The hotel has everything you might need and is in a great location only a couple of minutes away from a beautiful beach.

Nice hotel, good facilities, great location.

I'm a regular visitor to this little Island, I hardly miss a Moonsplash and love all that the island has to offer. Every time I stay with aunty Ann, I often call the day before and there is always room for me and my friends. The place is just a simple but well look after guest house, so don't expect to pay little money and receive 5 stars service or facilities. Actually having such a huge space with A/C, TV, Fridge, fully equipped kitchen, balcony and feel safe to leave doors open and sit for a drink with fellow holidaymaker, is just priceless... She makes me coffee in the morning if I have none, always have a kind word and care if I need anything that she doesn't have... really, excellent value for money. Getting home a bit drunk and happy from a night at Pumphouse or Elvis, Johnno's and the fun of Sandy ground on the door step. Car alway parked within 5 yard, 15 minutes from all of the 33 beaches, and I can go on untill Tripadvisor will allow me to write... If you want to experience Anguilla the Anguilla way, that's the place to stay... I read some other comments probably written from unhappy people that shouldn't even be allowed to leave their own countries.

One Love.

This was our 20th year at Sydans and it only gets better every year. We are treated like family and Ann is always willing to accomodate us. It's located right in the hot spot of Sandy ground with plenty of restraunts, entertainment, and a beautiful beach. We had a kitchen/living area and a bedroom with a bath. We had a deck off the bedroom and a porch to have all our meals on. This year Ann had a bar-b-que on the roof which we used many times. We want to thank Ann and her family for a wonderful stay, and are looking forward to our return visit next year.

We have been staying at Sydans for over 20 years and have just returned from our 2012 visit. It is a charming local owned inn and is perfect for our needs. We are always welcomed back by Anne Edwards (owner) and her family and it feels like our second home. Located in the small village of Sandy Ground, just steps away from the beach, on the salt pond (beautiful birds feeding on pond) and within walking distance to 8 great restaurants and scuba diving. A great opportunity to enjoy a vacation in Paradise for a very reasonable price. Counting the days til our next trip. The Sandy Ground beach is great for swimming, sunbathing, and watching the local boat activity.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms on the second floor are great. 201, 202, 203 have patios on the salt pond

Sydans is both great value for money and full of local Caribbean characters. No its not top end luxury, but staying here you get to see the real Anguilla. The room was large (on second floor room 204) with a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Faultlessly clean; bedding changed every other day. Very comfortable giant king size bed and both air con and ceiling fan.
Anne the owner could not have been more helpful. What ever you needed she would get it for you.
Fantastic location, literally 30 second walk from Sandy Ground beach, which was lovely. The are about 8 bars and restaurants all within easy walking distance. From the peer there is a regular boat over to Sandy Island only $10.
Only one criticism the water pressure in the shower was very poor, but hey I could live with that. Take ear plugs because the cockerels and dogs will wake you up at some unearthly hour otherwise.
Cant recommend enough and would definitely stay here again.
