“It was our perfect honeymoon destination!”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

Although it has been years since we were here, our memories of the resort, the management, and the staff are still quite vivid and exotic. As a honeymoon destination we couldn't have chosen better. The layout of the resort, with multiple cottage type rooms, beautiful grounds, a fine little restaurant on site, the Old Caribe, and especially the beach is hard to top. Not some overblown ritzy resort, but more like a small village with cozy cottages right next to the bay.
It was relaxing, quiet, and had the extra benefit of a great welcoming staff. And we have to stress this point........the beach and water couldn't be better!! Anguilla is a beautiful island!
We plan to revisit the Great House soon.

This was a little different than we expected but there were some good surprises as well. Don't expect your typical front desk service, more like your visiting someone's home. They are available for the morning through the evening (no one overnight), assisting with a car rental and letting you know things if you ask. We didn't get much help with excursions, especially being a small island we thought they would have all the connections. The beach was great, couldn't believe this was a small resort. The rooms are kind of sweet but the set up was confusing. A/C worked well. We had a king-sized studio bedroom, with a daybed for a couch. The bathroom needed some updating but was clean. The confusing area was that there was like a kitchenette between the bedroom and bathroom, nice big sink, lots of cabinets, a tiny fridge that went on using a switch, an ice bucket and there was a 2 cup coffee pot. There were no cups, flatware, plates, glasses or coffee and condiments. This place would have had a higher rating if these things had been included. We were only there for a short stay before heading to our weekly timeshare but wanted to check this out for perhaps a week trip in the future. Luckily we had our coffee & filters with us, but had to wait for the "dining area" to open to get our supplies. When we were at the beach one morning a chartered Catamaran dropped anchor & all of their customers unloaded for snorkeling and a day at the beach & lunch. Luckily they were all very nice & their were no issues. The employees were nice but very reserved. The pool was not inviting as there was always a very thick hose hanging in it that you had to walk over to get to the dining area and the pool deck needed updating/repairing. The beach chairs were chained down & we were told that when the beach guy came we could get them at a cost. The dining attendant had a key and we were able to get two and didn't see a bill charge. It had occurred to me later that we probably could have brought the ones from our front porch down ourselves instead of waiting for them to open etc. The views are amazing. The food wasn't anything to write about and was unpredictable in that what was on the menu wasn't always available & usually you didn't find out until just before they other person's meal was ready. The service was noticeably slow and like I said above she was very nice but reserved. There is no beach bar like it sounds & looks like in the pictures. There is a very small building that has a cut out in the middle for a bartender and you can possibly sit around it (don't remember seeing any stools), no bartender, no service. Down the beach there was a great little place called "Sun Shine Shack", a must-do!

Room Tip: Building A I believe is the group of rooms that are closest to the beach and away from the dining &a...

After many trips to Anguilla this was our first stay at the Anguilla Great House (AGH). We've done the 5-star resort thing as well as other mid-range properties, but of everywhere we have stayed AGH is now our favorite. It doesn't have the polish and sophistication of the 5-stars, but over the years we have discovered that polish and sophistication wasn't what kept us coming back to Anguilla. What kept us coming back was a vibe, something that touches the soul, and that can't be manufactured... but AGH has "IT".

Many debate about which Anguilla beach is the best, and solid arguments can be made for many. For us though, Rendezvous Bay has always been #1, and AGH sits smack in the middle of this tropical dreamscape. Situated directly on the wide powdery white sand beach amongst the coconut palms and looking out onto the stunning azure blue sea with the mountains of St. Martin as a backdrop, you need to pinch yourself each morning to be sure you are really there. The water is calm compared to the North (Atlantic) side of the island, and there is always a steady cooling breeze. For pure beach lovers, it doesn't get any better.

One of the oldest hotels on the island, AGH exudes Caribbean colonial charm with its colorful one-story wood buildings, each housing 5 guest suites, each just steps from that amazing beach. The rooms are clean and comfortable - decent beds and hot showers. Air conditioning is available if needed, but often times just the ceiling fan and tropical breezes will suffice. Rooms have small refrigerators for the guests convenience, which do come in handy. Housekeeping is daily, and non-intrusive... but if you do happen to bump into your housekeeper you are guaranteed a warm and friendly experience, as is the norm in Anguilla. I hear the rooms have TVs, but I barely noticed to one in our room (c'mon people, you can watch TV at home - keep that thing off and enjoy where you are!)

The thing that surprised us most about AGH was their restaurant, The Old Caribe, because it isn't often discussed in restaurant recommendations. Although the service can sometimes be a little uneven, the food was very good, and quite reasonably priced for Anguilla. We had breakfast several mornings and also tried them for lunch and dinner and were never disappointed. The coconut-pumpkin soup was particularly tasty and the rum punches outstanding.

If you need some 5-star pampering the Cuisinart Resort is just a short walk up the beach where you can schedule a massage or play a round of golf on Anguilla's only golf course. Also just a short walk up the beach is Garvey's Sunshine Shack - a special place, run by a very special guy, where you can grab lunch and some drinks and just while the day away.

We will absolutely return to AGH - and if you have a laid-back attitude, enjoy people, and love spectacular beaches, then you should consider it too!

The Anguilla Great House is a beautiful location on the most gorgeous uncrowded beach. The staff is very friendly. Dinner at the Old Caribe restaurant at the Anguilla Great House was one of the best, and most reasonably priced meals we had on the island. "The Place" just down the beach is one of the few places in walking distance and a great place to hang out for lunch. You will want a car to explore the island and take advantage of the many great restaurants, and explore some other beaches, but you'll be happy you're staying on Rendezvous Bay.

The rooms are not luxurious. They need maintenance, and attention to detail. We did see Wilbert, the manager looking at bathroom fixtures, so perhaps upgrades are in the near future. While I understand Anguilla is very safe, I would like to have had an interior deadbolt, or security lock in the room. I am also use to locking up my valuables in a safe in the room, and none was available.

Room Tip: Room 127 is right on the beach. The room could have a view, but the windows are small, and there ar...

Owned locally by the family,people who serve you are very friendly. Many have worked there for the many years that we have been going there. The food is excellent and the setting overlooking the bay is so nice.
Book the ferry from the airport, on the Dutch side of St Maarten to Anguilla.
The Great House is a short walk on the beech to the very fancy resort Cuisinart. Should you wish a massage etc you can book there.

Room Tip: Beech view. Best beech on Anguilla.

First time on Anguilla and loved it. The Great house was much less expensive then most beachfront places and had everything we needed. Very quaint and comfortable. The property is a bit older but rooms are very large and very clean. Bar, restaurant, pool, beach chairs, beach towels, very friendly staff. Quiet and laid back. Very short taxi ride to ferry terminal. Outstanding beach. Very calm sea. Short beach walk to Bankie Banx Dune Preserve. Anguilla in general is a bit pricey and remote but definitely worth the trip if you are looking for peace and quiet.
