Fodor's Expert Review Serenity Cottages

Shoal Bay Village, n/a Anguilla, AI2640, Anguilla

Despite the name, these aren't cottages but large, fully equipped, and relatively affordable one- and two-bedroom apartments (and studios) in a small complex set in a lush garden at the far end of glorious Shoal Bay Beach East. There are two restaurants: one on a breezy verandah and the other on the beach. Guests gather on seemingly mislocated Adirondack-style chairs for sundowner cocktails. But there hasn't traditionally been much attention from staff, so stay here only if you are self-sufficient. There are laundry facilities. Units vary in view and accessibility, so discuss your preferences when reserving.

PROS

  • quiet end of beach with snorkeling outside the door
  • weeklong packages
  • two convenient restaurants

CONS

  • no pool
  • more condo than hotel in terms of staff
  • location requires a car and extra time to drive to the West End
