Carimar Beach Club is a mid-priced apartment-style Anguilla hotel known for its beachfront location on Meads Bay beach, one of the best beaches on the island, and for its friendly staff. The property itself is one of the oldest on the island but the caring owners and staff keep it well-maintained, with timely renovations scheduled. There are kitchens in the 24, 2-bedrooms units but you dont have to cook during your stay since you can walk to some of the islands best restaurants, Jacala and Straw Hat, right from the hotel. Theres even Blanchard's Beach Shack - a beach bar and restaurant next door. If you want to cook to save some money, there's a grocery store nearby. Breakfast and lunch on the balcony overlooking the turquoise waters can be a truly rich experience.
The bedrooms are air-conditioned for your comfort but the living and kitchen areas are not, so its best to get a room on the second floor so you can open the sliders to catch the breezes and still maintain some privacy and peace of mind. But, if you want to be able to walk right out to the beach from your room, reserve a beachfront room. The units are well furnished and comfortable otherwise with TV and WiFi.
If you love the beach but are on a budget, you will love Carimar Beach Club. Even without a pool, its one of the best finds on the island of Anguilla.
