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.
