Anguilla Great House Beach Resort
Ranked #9 of 13 Hotels in West End Village
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We stayed for a long weekend at the Anguilla Great House and had a wonderful time. The hotel is a traditional Old Caribbean style set on Rendezvous Bay beach. The location is absolutely perfect - tranquil, stunning beach setting of white sand and crystal clear water that you see on postcards. The beach was never busy during our trip and the hotel has complimentary beach loungers to enjoy. The pool is great to dip into to cool off and the on site restaurant caters for all to a very good standard. The staff are all very friendly, especially the manager/owner for whom nothing was too much trouble. During our trip we had a strong tropical storm which prevented our plane from flying back to Nevis. The manager kept out room for us for an extra night and arranged for drinks on the house for us.

The charm of the Great House is that it is not a large soulless resort, which do exist for those who want it, but is a boutique hotel which is full of history and staff who are welcoming and professional.

We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Anguilla.

Room Tip: The garden rooms facing the beach are wonderful as you wake up to the beauty of the beach and the se...

If you are expecting are 'luxury' resort then this is not the place for you. The accommodations are quaint, clean (cleaned daily) and adequate but basic and definitely not over the top. The sheets for one are definitely outdated. The surroundings, however, are beautiful. This resort is situated on what I find to be Anguilla's most beautiful stretch of beach.. Rendezvous Bay. This makes up for whatever is lacking in the room. The beach is pristine and perfect for relaxing, swimming or simply jogging/walking. The pool is also quite inviting with a view of the beach as well as St. Martin in the distance and with the restaurant just alongside you can't go wrong. I would definitely recommend this resort for anyone who prefers the lighter side of life and enjoys the outdoors and the beach. I would definitely come again!

Room Tip: Choose a room closer to the end by the beach. You can walk right out your door and onto the sand.

I have stayed here at least five or six times through the years. In my opinion is the best value on the island. However you need to be a real outdoors beach like person to truly enjoy this. The rooms are very basic but clean. Overlook a beautiful span of beach. And it's probably one fifth of the price of the fancy hotels nearby. The staff is wonderfully friendly. If you're looking for a luxury resort this is not the place. But if you're looking for very relaxing beautiful stay in a basic room this could be the place. I can't afford those fancy hotels nearby. This is a true Beachhouse. Enjoy.

We are a group of ten people who have been returning to Anguilla for 5 years. One of our ten stayed at the great house their first year on Anguilla, and since we returned as a group we rent a villa. However, the management allowed us to conduct an Aquafit class in their pool, which is adjacent to the most glorious beach, Rendezvous bay. We had drinks and lunch here and food was great, prices reasonable doe this expensive island, and the most friendly staff ever! Accommodations are basic and non pretentious. I would highly recommend staying and eating here.

I so want to write a positive revue of this hotel and I will but first be warned that if you are expecting a luxury resort in keeping with all the other Hotels in Anguilla then you will be disappointed. Now to the good bits the rooms are clean and to a good size the bathrooms work, just all very dated. I know I said the good bits? OK the location is great on the most beautiful beach with great staff and a real bargain room rate, when compared with the rest of the Island. So if you want to stay someplace posh then book someplace posh. If you want a really quite location on a beautiful beach as a base to visit all the very good expensive restaurants with nice friendly staff then book this hotel. You can always walk along the beach for lunch and have possibly the best ever shrimps in coconut with an orange and mango sauce at THE PLACE. We really enjoyed our visit and warmed to all the good bits, we are foodies who have been spoilt, it would not take much to take the location to a new level they have the location just need more imagination or maybe they are happy to offer a stunning location at a really good rate?

This was my wife and my first time at the Greathouse, and we loved it! Go here if you want simplicity, peacefulness, and an incredible view of the Caribbean. The property is beachfront, so you literally walk out of your room to the beach. At the restaurant, make sure you order the red snapper – it's fantastic. This is truly a place for rest and relaxation. Highly recommend!

Couldn't have had a nicer stay!! We are low maintenance people who love the beach, good food and great people. We found all that at the great house and surrounding places. Great food and drinks at Garveys beach shack aka the sunshine shack..... Garvey and Leon are top notch people!! Great food and music at Dune Preserve all within walking distance. The entire island is beautiful and there are great restaurants everywhere but we were very happy on Rondevous Bay.
