“Great Beach Hotel”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

My wife and I just completed our first trip to Anguilla and spent four nights at the Frangipani. It was a great choice. You fall out of bed onto the beach. We visited the Viceroy down the beach for drinks and, although very upscale, it is much larger and less cozy. Depends on what you want. Scott and Shannon and the entire staff are super helpful, and helped us arrange for a ferry over from the airport, a rental car (dropped off right at the resort), and numerous dinner reservations.

Meads beach is a wonderful 1/2 mile stretch, with several good restaurants for lunch and dinner, including Straw Hat (at the Frangipani), Jacala, and Blanchard's Beach Bar. We also had great meals (thanks to Scott's recommendations) at Barrell Stay and Veya.

My only complaints: (1) No fitness center (because I feel guilty sitting on the beach all day and then going out to a fabulous dinner every night) although this is being remedied with a new addition presently under construction. (2) No screens in any doors or windows. The doors all open by swinging out, which is fine during the day but presents a problem when dusk arrives and the mosquitos come out. They are not any worse than in Ohio, but they are annoying. We had to close our doors at night, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a room on the beach since I love to listen to the waves at night and hate using air conditioning.

Room Tip: We had A5 and it had three balconies. Good choice on the second floor.

My husband, 15 month daughter and myself just got back from Anguilla. Everything was perfect at The Frangipani Hotel for 5 nights . Hotel is on the best beach and close to many restaurants. We did go in high season so it was expensive but well worth it. The staff was wonderful and could do anything you need - car rental, rest reservations and etc. The hotel also has one of the best restaurants on the island right there too. They offer free water sports too which was a lot of fun. The beach was never crowded and you could always get a seat at the pool or beach. Which was also great !!! We will absolutely be back and hopefully stay in a suite with a kitchen. We hear those rooms are perfect. Our room didn't have a view and only a refrigerator but we managed. After all you are in paradise.

We just returned from another wonderful vacation at the Frangipani. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. It is small, so the beach and pool are never crowded. This makes the overall vibe of the hotel extremely relaxed. The adjacent restaurant, The Straw Hat, has a beautiful view of the beach and the food is excellent. The staff at the hotel and the restaurant could not be nicer or more attentive. We enjoyed a beach hopping boat trip organized through the hotel. It was an ideal beach vacation! I can't wait to go back.
Also, they are in the process of building a fitness center, which should be up and running by the time we go back!

This is a very small and luxurious resort, which never gets crowded. I think there may only be 25 rooms, Or less. The infinity edge pool is right at the edge of the beach. Drinks are served on the beach or at the pool by an attentive staff from the adjoining wonderful beach bar, the straw hat. Almost all the rooms have an ocean view, but if that is important to you be sure to reserve one that has the view. Words are in adequate to describe the setting so I attach pictures below. We have already signed up for next year. You will enjoy not only this resort, but the entire island. I was traveling with a broken arm and could not walk to a very nearby supermarket. One of the staff immediately volunteered to take me there. When is the last time that ever happened? A great place.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2B. Wonderful ocean view but only for two. If you have more traveling with you con...

We just returned from the best vacation at Frangipani Resort. This is a quiet small boutique type hotel with very accommodating service. Very few families which we like. Clientele is mostly adults so quiet, peaceful on the nicest beach in Anguilla. We will return here again for sure!

My wife and I just returned from our 4th stay at the Frangipani. As always, we had a fantastic time. We now have a 16 month old little boy so it was great to enjoy a truly relaxing week away from our hectic day-to-day lives. Being our 4th visit to the FBR we know what to expect so we knew it was exactly the relaxing get-away we needed.

I have stated this in previous reviews but to summarize the reasons we keep coming back to Anguilla and specifically the Frangipani Beach Resort - the beach and sea are stunningly beautiful on Meads Bay, no crowds to contend with at all on the Resort's beach, the staff of the Resort is friendly and helpful - the staff honestly feels like family to us after all these visits. In fact, all the people in Anguilla are genuine and friendly. It feels like everyone on the Island wants to make sure you have a great time.

The highlight of the trip was the boat excursion we took with the new Managers of the FBR - Shannon and Scott. They are a delightful young couple and they certainly know how to take care of their guests. Along with four other Resort guests we cruised out to Prickly Pear Cay, then to Davida for a delicious lunch and then snorkeled in Little Bay. Just a great day!

The Resort is currently redoing the reception area and adding a gym. This will be a nice addition and I will enjoy the gym on future visits while my wife sleeps in. I was a little concerned there may be some construction noise due to this project but I was never disturbed by this at all. The only thing I heard was the soothing sounds of the Sea!

My wife and I will definitely be back to the Frangipani Beach Resort as soon as we can. Our only question now is when do we start to bring our little boy with us.

Only stayed one night as we were staying the next week at a villa at the Viceroy down the beach. We arrived after dark from San Jaun but were greeted and escorted to our room. It was very well appointed with a little patio and just a few steps from the beach. The resort restaurant was called Straw Hat and we were able to be seated at a table on the patio next to the beach with a couple guys playing island music. It was so nice to be able to relax and enjoy our first evening after a long travel day. We had to check out and move to the villa the next morning. Instead of calling a cab for us, the manager just popped our luggage into his car and drove us there. The resort is very nice and right on the beach but the two managers were so nice it made our brief stay just perfect. Thanks
