A gret place to relax!from chris0000
fabulous vacationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Suite) was very spacious and clean. Getting a good night sleep was easy in the very comfortable bed! Pillows were perfect too! One of our best meals on the Island was the CuisinArts Santorini. The chef tasting with wine paring should not be missed. For all the delectable tastes and unbelievable wines we savored we found the meal at Santorini by far the best value on the Island. Christopher Heath (chef de cuisine) took time to talk with us making us feel welcomed. We received some great recipes and cooking tips at Christopher Heaths complimentary cooking demonstration. Try some of the complimentary daily exercise classes taught by Peter. Also, the concierge went above and beyound helping to locate a specific souvenir for our kids. When getting around the island ask for Leslie, he drives a very comfortable luxury van. For dinner try Pimms and Flavors too. We can't wait to go back!!!!

Best Vacation Everfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The resort grounds are breathtaking. The rooms are huge with ocean views and the most luxurious bathroom I've ever seen. The pool is stunning, especially at night, but the beach was my favorite. I had never felt sand like this! The snorkling isn't bad there either (but it was much better on the east end of the island: a short drive away.) What really makes this resort great is Anguilla itself. All this island has is this: excellent beaches, very friendly people, and unbelievable restraunts. But that's it. If you're looking for non stop action and night life go elsewhere. If you want to relax by the water during the day and eat better than you ever have make your plans to visit Anguilla now. The only knock against the Cuisinart is the food. It's advertised as 5 star dining and it is far from it. It's not bad, but at around $100 a plate it's a ripoff. Especially since the other restraunts on the island are outstanding. Ask the concierge to help you with retraunt recommendations. They are very helpful. The service at the Cuisinart could be improved, too, but they are very good where it counts.
relaxing paradise for twofrom A TripAdvisor Member
Very private,,,,.... You will love it,,,,, I will definately go back but like I said 2-3 days tops,,,, (we were on our honeymoon) so it was perfect,, but even then you want to do some other activities.....
Cabbing gets pricy if you stay more than 2-3 days,,/.... A must though,, you won't be dissapointed.
Terrible service at mealsfrom TravelerMelville
Complaining did not help at all. Would we go back? NO WAY. It is really a shame because the resort is absolutely magnificent. They need a major shake-up of their help. We got the impression that no one knew what they were doing; very confused, etc.The marketing dept. offered me one night free if we book 3 nights because of the problems. Now I ask you....why would I book three nights to go through this again?
prefer the Anguilla great house!from dixe
The chicken was undercooked,and there were screaming children everywhere. The waiter was very nice and tried to help us out by moving us....and my husband liked his vegetarian tasting menu. But there is a children's program where the parents disappear and the kids run around alone (or I guess they are somewhat supervised by babysitters-but there is no peace here!). Way too expensive of a restaurant for the experience....
I much prefered the Anguilla Great House which was on the exact same beach,except we had a lot more room at The Great House. Cuisineart had about one foot of beach per person....we had at least 8 feet of beach all to ourselves (I mean just for me and my husband!). There is also great food at the Great house-at about one fifth the price! (still not cheap-).
Yachts came from St. Bart's,just because our stretch of beach was wonderful. Also, the Great House has the food and architecture and atmosphere of the true Caribbean,not a tacky,foreign-owned big resort atmosphere~which we felt was bland,boring and annoying,actually,at the Cuisinart. We walked down there in five minutes and we could eat at the restaurants,shop in the very expensive shops there,and then go back to our own little cottage with a galvanized roof at the Great House.
When it rained some nights it was wonderful to hear the rain on the roof! We used the fitness room and the internet....we sailed and swam and ate and drank very well each day. It was the best and most stress-free vacation I have ever had, and I have traveled everywhere and am from New York-I am critical by nature but the people at the Great House were sincerely nice and really cared that we enjoyed ourselves. I would highly recommend it to any couple ~
True,the bartenders (Hello Garvey)were very nice at Cuisineart,and the drinks were good,but everything at Cuisineart was soooo much more expensive than at the Great House. No one could really match Elvis at the great house as bartender! He was the best. He made us feel like we were all part of a big family.
I really do not think anything they had at Cuisinart was worth the prices (and the grounds were not all that much nicer either.) Why not stay at the Great House, have peace and quiet,and a lot of beach to yourselves,where there ARE children- but the parents are taking care of them, so they don't run all over shrieking!
Don't get me wrong....I had kids (now grown),but I think parents should watch their own children when the kids are very young. I also think that a vacation on the beach needs to have PEACEFUL, non-stressful,long days on the beach. And that's what you get at the Great House.
The staff is the best-anything you need they will happily get for you. They gave us a free bottle of champagne (it was our 15th wedding anniversary),which we drank on the beach~ the room was great,the maid service was excellent,all the people in the office and restaurant were genuinely sweet and the service was wonderful ,and the beach was clean: because if there was even a bit of seaweed,Calvert would clean it up! Also, Vaughn was a great sailing instructor.
So, why spend more for Cuisineart? I will be going back to the Great House ASAP! It will be like going home.
By the way,we went to St. Martin (which was okay~),and to St. Bart's. The ferry to St Bart's,the Voyager,was the worst boat trip I've ever been on...(sounds like a song...)~and I love sailing! Avoid that ferry!!!!
There were people getting ill the whole way,and the waves were 12 feet at times-the ferry seemed too small to be on that water! It is in the Atlantic part of the way,and it was rough in the Caribbean too.
One woman flew across the top deck,which is where we were,and hit her head and almost fell off! I couldn't believe we all made it. I was very frightened.... and it was not worth going to St. Bart's-we didn't even think the beach at St Jean was pretty compared to the beach at the Great House (Rendezvous Bay). Skip St. Bart's and go to Anguilla. the people are nicer,prices more fair,beaches more beautiful....
I taught French for years and I love France and especially the south of France-but St. Bart's was dirty and too crowded. Not as nice as Anguilla at all. Not worth almost dying to get there on the crazy ferry! DON"T bother.
Perfect Honeymoon at CuisinArtfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The resort, service, food and beach were wonderful. We were looking for a place to relax and unwind after the wedding and Anguilla was the perfect destination.
We stayed in a junior suite with an ocean view. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are amazing and the little touches like robes and slippers make it feel like home.
The service and food at the hotel was amazing. The food is a little over priced so we would recommend a package deal where some of your meals are included.
The spa was amazing -- we had a number of treatments and both the treatment rooms and therapists were top notch.
We felt there was plenty to do at the resort from lounging by the pool (very comfortable pool chairs) or beach to the non motorized water sports.
It was a great experience and we look forward to going back!
Top Local Tips for Rendezvous Bay
Needs work to be five star stay at Serenity Cottage instead. Its much more intimate, no theft or sketchy staff members, not overpriced, no chemical sprays on the grounds, best lobster on the island is at Gwens which is a walk away, right next to an on the beach massage hut.
Restaurants Mangos - Bob is still cranky, place has slipped. Blanchards - Bob and Melinda spending less time here, more at their new place. Zurra - Blanchard's new place. Don't miss it. Veya - New place, good, but not great. CoveCastle - go and it's like you've reserved the whole place. Empty and sad. Chef is hostile, don't waste your time.
great new anguillan restaurant Zurra is the newest restaurant over at the St Regis Golf course. It is fabulous and kid friendly too. It is not typically Anguillan, but nice for a change of pace from the little local places (Straw Hat, Olivers, Mango's, Picante,) which are also great!
