Second time at carimar, and we love it. We have 3 young kids, who love blanchards with their life, but its also perfect for adults. Each room has an amazing view even those not right on the beach. We are still here now, and our only wish is that they had a tiny pool, even a hot tub, to rinse off in. Over all, we love it here. Great distance from everything on the Island, Kid and Adult friendly and the BEST beach in the world. We've come back twice, so that tells you something!!

Room Tip: The ones on the road are a little noisy, not bad. All have an AMAZING view but the ones on the beach...

Great place on Meads Bay. Staff was wonderful. Rooms are big enough for 2 couples.
Close to lots of great resturants.Quiet hours for those who don't like noise !!
Good supermarket nearby but like all Carribean Islands food is expensive.

Room Tip: Only 4 rooms beach front but the others also have great views.

Carimar Beach Club, Anguilla…..We chose this property based on the Tripadvisor reviews, after we couldn’t get into the Frangipani which is 200 yards down the beach. We have good friends that have been staying at the Frangipani for over 10 years, and sold us on that property and on Meads Bay Beach. We were absolutely thrilled with our experience at the Carimar and Meads Bay Beach, and we will come back here again on our next visit to Anguilla. The property is not a resort hotel, but a managed group of condos on the beach, with around 28 units total. The condo units are either 1 or 2 bedroom, and all are either beach front or beach view, with units on the 1st and 2nd floors, and all with full kitchens. We were there for 6 nights and I checked out the views from most of the units. All are very good, although the beach view rooms have a better view from the 2nd v. the 1st floor. All are so close to the beach that you really won’t go wrong with any of them. The farthest unit from the beach is less than 100 steps. Some reviews talked about the beach front condos getting quite hot in the afternoon (they face west, which is very nice at sunset). We talked with several people staying in the beach front units, and the consensus seems to be that the porch gets hot late in the day, but there didn’t seem to be an problem inside the unit. There are ceiling fans in every room and AC only in the bedrooms. We found that to be just fine, and did not miss central AC for the full unit.

We knew going in that there is no pool or restaurant at the Carimar, but we didn’t find that to be an issue. The beach is generally very calm at Meads Bay, and we were in the water right in front of our condo multiple times per day. You can get a very nice lunch or light supper at Blanchards Beach Shack, 50 yards down the beach, breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Straw Hat, 200 yards down the beach, and fine dining at Blanchards Restaurant and Jacala, both within 300 yards down the beach.

We have stayed at many condos on vacation, and have never found one to be so well cared for and with such attentive and professional staff. Heather, Laverne, Hermia and the rest of the team of reception staff are always available to help in any way that they can. The gardens and flowers are impeccable. There are two on-site tennis courts, laundry facilities, snorkel gear, barbecue gear, etc. We rented a car and drove all over the island. You only need to rent a car to see the island. Everything you need is within walking distance of the Carimar. We checked out 4 other beaches and 5 other properties, and we wouldn’t change anything if we were to do it over again.

The island of Anguilla is our favorite that we’ve ever visited in the Caribbean. This is a very little traveled, low key island, which is what we were looking for. There are no cruise ships, no major airlines, and no gambling, but it has some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, and some very nice restaurants. We found the Anguillan people to be very pleasant. If you are looking for nightlife and shopping, this is probably not your island. Note that we found Anguilla to be more expensive than other Caribbean islands. We flew into St Martin, and took a 6 mile boat taxi over to Anguilla, which the Carimar can set up for you. You also have the option of taking a small plane over from Florida, St Maartin or other locations in the Caribbean. In over a dozen vacations to the Caribbean, we have never repeated at a property, but we intend to repeat at the Carimar Beach Club.

Room Tip: We checked out several and all are close to the beach with good or great views. Maybe stay away fro...

This place does a wonderful job in every way and now that Best Buy has opened the grocery store close by it is so easy to be there. The kitchens are very well appointed and have everything you need to cook if you choose. There are more than enough umbrellas and chairs on the beach. I also like that they give you enough beach towels to be comfortable. We had a great time and will return.

This was our fourth trip to Anguilla and our first time at Carimar- all our other visits were to Cap Juluca. We loved Carimar! Our unit was a 2 bedroom beach front with an incredible view- very comfortable. The staff at Carimar goes above and beyond to help guests with dinner reservations, pointers on the island, shuttle arrangements, rental cars, groceries-whatever a guest needs. The weather was not too warm in late February/early March so we were fine without air conditioning in the main areas (bedrooms are air conditioned). I think it could be warm in the later months of the year.

We will definitely be back!

We had a second floor, two bedroom on the beach. The view was phenomenal. The convenience of being right on the beach was great. The service and cleanliness was above expectations. Truly the best place on the island to stay. But keep it our little secret! I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: They are all good
