I had never met Devin’s mom, Sherry, before, but she was very welcoming though she got right down to business. Devin’s Aunt Monica was also there to sit me down and lay down the rules of the house – no parties and keep the neighborhood boys away from the stoop as to not disturb the neighboring restaurants.

This morning I went for a walk along Mullet Bay again. It wasn't as nice as the other day - the surf was more extreme and noone was swimming (apparently you shouldn't swim there when the sea is rough because of the strong currents). The beach was empty too - it must have been too early for most vacationers or too late for the locals - or just too windy! I did find myself a furry friend though - a little black dog who decided that he would accompany me on my ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Frangipani Beach Resort Anguilla
We just returned from a week at Frangipani Beach Club. We went here for our wedding. First of all, the staff did more than an awesome job. we called about 6 months prior to arriving and told them what we wanted and they delivered. For about $1500 we got a wedding coordinator from the resort who took care of all the arragements for us prior to arrival. She book the photograper, Videoographer, florist, cake, singer and guisterist as well as the priest and getting us to and from the court house for the marriage license. We did not have any family there and 15 minutes before the wedding one of the staff memebers came to my suite to make sure I was ok and to see if I needed any help getting ready. They are truly awesome there as far as service. The wedding was on the beach and the owner of the resort made a very nice wedding arch only steps away from the water. They decorated our dinner table with flowers and a candle and maked it was a gold plated reserved sign. If you want to get married in one of the most beautiful places in the world for hardly any work or stress and for a out of this world price...Frangipani Beach Club is the place.
We have just returned from a week at the Frangipani Beach Club in Anguilla. We LOVED it and would highly recommend Anguilla and Frangipani to others. Anguilla is beautiful, its people are VERY welcoming, and the beaches are fantastic.
Had a magical time
My husband and I had a wonderful time at Frangipani. We went during the off season and had the beautiful beach almost completely to ourselves. The staff was friendly.
The island has absolutely fantastic restaurants. We'll be back!
Luxury & Tranquility
We have just returned from a week at Frangipani. To say it was relaxing would be an understatement! The setting right on Meads Bay beach is wonderful, clear aqua sea and gentle waves. The rooms are well equipped, and we had a lovely sea view from our Super Deluxe room. The restaurant has a lovely setting overlooking the beach, but we ventured out and can strongly recommend Corals (just along the beach, and overlooking the dolphin reserve), Tasty's, Flavours and Smokeys. Book in for a swim with the dolphins it's a fantastic experience, and hiring a car for a few days is recommended too. We will be going back, as soon as we get an opportunity.
Better than advertised...
My husband and I just returned from a spectacular vacation to Anguilla. We went there looking for a week of peace and quiet. That's exactly what we got! Frangipani was beautiful and better in person than expected. The first thing my husband said to me is that they need to update their website. It just doesn't do it justice. We had a one bedroom suite with a full kitchen. We were just feet away from gorgeous Meads Bay, which we feel really is the best beach on the island. We really enjoyed our vacation and we feel that our hotel choice was a key reason for it.
Frangiapani,,,,,,,,,closest place to heaven
My wife and I just spent aweek in Anguilla,,we stayed at the Frangiapani hotel right on Meads bay. We have been to Anguilla before but have always stayed at the Sonesta which was torned down last year.The Frangiapani was a great replacement.The beach was within 10 steps from our room , they have snorkleing equipment to use if you want. There restauraunt is first class ,, people that work there are friendly and will accommadate just about any requests. Our room had a full kitchen washer dryer, etc, etc,.....we never used the stove but it was there,,,,,,,the restauraunts on the island have to be the best in the world,and I am not kidding people! We are counting the days until we return next year,,,, any questions you have I will try to answer,,,,,it is worth the trip
Susan & myself were holidaying in Antigua when we decided to visit Anquilla. We made arrangements to stay at the Frangiapani Hotel over a 5 day period in November 03 & wish we had stayed longer. The Frangiapani is situated right on the most marvellous Meads Bay beach, which in my opinion is quite stunning. The hotel is extremely well run, with efficient & courteous staff, who deal with requests promptly. The rooms are spacious & well appointed. We visited at the start of the tourist season & unfotunately the hotel restaurant wasn't open for dinner. However, there are some fabulous restaurants on the Island which cater for all tastes. Recommended are Olivers, Blanchard's & The Straw Hat to name but a few. The main Restaurants are a little 'pricey', but there are others to suit your pocket. The Frangiapani has a nice pool, which we almost had to ourselves. While we were there, a new development was being built next door, so I don't know whether that will impact on the fabulous setting & tranquillity the Frangiapani offered. The people of Anquilla are welcoming, hospitable & appear genuinely pleased to meet you. You aren't pestered on the beach by 'vendors' & 'jet skies' etc aren't permitted. As a base, Anguilla offers easy access to other islands(St Marten, a 30 minute ferry boat crossing). The reason I am writing this review is because it's coming around to holiday time again & our consideration is to re visit Anquilla, but for a longer period. We were extemely happy with our stay at The Frangiapani & would highly recommend the hotel.
Going to Anguilla and staying at the Frangipani was the best decision we could have made for our vacation. My boyfriend and I just returned and we truly had the time of our lives. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are huge, bright and clean with 2 bathrooms, 2 terraces, a full kitchen and a washer/dryer. Our bedroom had a king size bed and a huge cathedral ceiling. Every room is ocean front with a view of Mead's Bay, the most beautiful beach on the island, in my opinion.The staff at Frangipani was courteous and helpful. There was so much privacy at the resort but when you did feel like socializing, there were always other couples around to chat with. Most often people discussed what restaurants they had been to because the restaurants in Anguilla are not only plentiful but the majority are phenomenal! We never had a bad meal or poor service. We loved the Frangipani's restaurant and highly recommend the Warm Mozzarella and Tomato appetizer and the Filet Mignon stuffed with Foie Gras entree.There are other larger, more extravagant resorts on the island that are amazing, but they are twice the price and are not situated on as nice of a beach as The Frangipani.If you choose Frangipani, you will not regret it!
We truly loved it!
The Frangipani was a truly wonderful experience. If you're looking to stay in a smaller hotel with less people and seclusion, this is the place for stay on the island. We were upgraded to the penthouse suite when we arrived, and it's spacious rooms made our stay so perfect. Although, any room would have done the same. The restaurant provided delicious meals and the staff was so friendly. The beach was empty. Ours were the only footsteps on the sand except for that of a sea turtle who came up one night. We loved being able to walk on the beach to restaurants nearby. Strolling under the moonlight and making our way back to the blush pink palace was truly romantic. We'd definitely visit again.
The best ever....
I can't find a better place. After years of travel this is truly the best island and resort. If you want nothing to do and no one to bother you this is the place. 7 years now and i will be there again.
