In 2010, we stayed at Anacaona Boutique Hotel on Meads Bay in Anguilla. Anacaona is set back a bit from Meads Bay, but it is an easy walk to the beach (you are essentially walking along the side of a private villa).
There is no doubt why Anacaona
has received so much great press as an affordable way to visit Anguilla. Our two-bedroom cottage, just steps from a pool, and a short walk to Meads Bay, was only $260 a night. It’s tough to find a hotel room in Chicago in the winter for that rate. Although the cottage was not as luxurious as Meads Bay Beach Villas
, it was a great value for the money, especially if you are like us and take your kids on vacation. They are continuing their work to update the property. Not a day passed where some new work was not done.
The Anguillan breakfast at Anacaona
was phenomenal. It consisted of a whole fish and crisp, warm johnny cakes. Delicious!
also has the Mayoumba Folkloric Show on Thursday nights. In addition to dinner, you are treated to a show of stories and songs of Anguillan history. They are a very talented group!
In this scene, the topic is the influence of rum! Anacaona recently announced the addition of a new show, “The Night of Dance,” featuring the Klassique Dance Academy, on Monday nights.
