When it comes to the Caribbean, the only thing better than one private beach is two private beaches, and that very thing can be found at the Four Seasons Resorts and Residences Anguilla. Occupying a coveted clifftop location on an island otherwise known for being rather flat, the luxurious resort overlooks both Meads and Barnes Bay – offering some spectacular views.
Inside and out, the resort blends starkly angular architecture with a subdued tropical feel; clean lines and natural decor make for spaces that are soothing and elegant. Rooms – even entry-level ones – are generously sized and neutrally set in slate greys and sandy beiges. Gilded accents and unique decor (think wall-mounted giant tortoise shells) and canopy-framed beds keep the spaces sophisticated and earthy, made all the better by walls that open up entirely to the outdoors.
Decadent spa-like marble bathrooms have large walk-in showers separate from soaking tubs, and many rooms have sundecks or plunge pools (suites have the latter by default). The gems of the collection, however, are the larger accommodations: residences, townhomes and villas. These have the best views alongside fabulous amenities like private pools, cabanas and outdoor showers. Some have outdoor grills and all have private kitchens, where a chef can prepare meals for you if you don’t feel like leaving your quarters to dine.
When you are ready to venture out to the resort’s other dining options, however, you’ll have a lovely assortment to choose from. The resort’s signature restaurant is Cobà, which serves a lavish buffet breakfast (and all other meals) with a view of the water. For a light lunch and a rum cocktail, both Half Shell Beach Bar and Bamboo Bar and Grill are casual options. You’re likely to find yourself at Sunset Lounge nightly, and for good reason – the sushi, drinks and DJ are appealing as it is, but the views of the sunset over Barnes Bay are unmatched.
In your downtime (seemingly the only kind of time on this island), the resort has three pools (one adults-only) in addition to tennis, basketball and volleyball courts. Go rock climbing, take a bootcamp class or visit the Sea Centre to get outfitted for a variety of watersport adventures. Be sure to visit the spa as well before you leave; set in a two-story villa, the enormous space offers a full menu of treatments to relax and restore both inside and out.

What I liked
The Viceroy is a superb 5-star hotel with modern rooms fitted with a Jacuzzi on the balcony in every room, this hotel is suited for teenagers and young couples seeking a romantic getaway. However, families with young children come to this hotel, which can spoil the laid back adult feel to the property.
I couldn’t believe the pool here, it was amazing! It was surrounded by palm trees, and looked like a maze, it was one of the best pools I’d ever swam in. I spent most of my time in the pool rather than the beach.
What I disliked
During the evening kids had to be out of the restaurant by 9pm. This was difficult for families to enjoy a nice dinner together. I could see it being a problem for families of all ages.
