Recent guests said the accommodations and service at this resort overlooking Anguilla's Shoal Bay East are exceptional. Sprawled across 6 acres, the resort's 76 rooms and suites come equipped with deep soaking tubs, walk-in showers and furnished balconies with pool, resort or ocean views. Past visitors loved the spacious layouts of their accommodations (which range from 600 to 2,826 square feet) and the contemporary Caribbean interior design (think: natural wood furnishings with crisp white linens and accents). Lodgers were equally impressed with the outdoor infinity pool, which overlooks the ocean and is considered one of the world's most beautiful, as well as the spa, which is housed within a 300-year-old Thai house and features a hammam, rain showers, a juice bar and a meditation garden. The resort also offers a fitness center, yoga classes and a beach boot camp, but if you'd rather get your adrenaline pumping in the water, you can ask the beach concierge to organize water activities, such as kayaking and snorkeling. Though the resort's dining options are limited (there are two on-site restaurants), the property's convenient location makes it easy to explore nearby eateries. You'll also find three bars on-site. What's more, as part of Hilton's portfolio of hotels, this property participates in the Hilton Honors rewards program.

Additional amenities that the room rates cover include use of the fitness center, pools and tennis court and daily breakfast for two at the Caribbean-inspired Straw Hat Restaurant (when stays are booked through the resort's website). Former visitors loved the meals served at the eatery, as well as the resort's plethora of free facilities. However, most said the spectacular views of Meads Bay and the beautiful rooms were the property's standout features. Accommodation options range from standard rooms with flat-screen TVs and balconies or terraces to suites with laundry machines and kitchens. Standard rooms do not offer water vistas, so past travelers recommend upgrading to an ocean view room or suite. Or, guests can reserve the four-bedroom villa, which has a private pool, a Jacuzzi and direct beach access. But remember, the resort closes annually from September through October.

For guests who would rather hit the spa than the greens, the full-service Spa by CuisinArt offers an expansive menu of unique treatments. Aside from the ocean views and relaxing recreation, CuisinArt also prides itself on its hydroponic farm that provides fresh produce to the resort's five restaurants, including the first authentic Japanese restaurant on the island, Tokyo Bay. Recent guests can find little to fault at this idyllic hideaway, saying the waitstaff and beach attendants go above and beyond to meet guests needs. However, some reviewers report subpar service from the housekeeping staff. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World portfolio, the property participates in the Leaders Club loyalty program.
