Caribbean Resort Review – Viceroy Anguilla

Oct 4, 2014 by     No Comments    Posted under: Caribbean, Restaurants, Reviews, Travel

We went to the beautiful pristine beach Caribbean island of Anguilla for our honeymoon.  And though there were several hotels and resorts to choose from on the island, none were as beautiful as the Viceroy.  The entire resort was a piece of art.  Just look at how beautiful it was!

Viceroy Anguilla Lobby and Check in

Check in was a breeze.  The staff was friendly, though not quite as professional as I would have expected, but nice and helpful none the less.  They even greeted us with a delicious iced sparkling grapefruit drink.

Viceroy’s Beautiful Grounds

Just walking around the grounds was like a visit to an art studio.  Every artful nuance at Viceroy was perfect.  Everything flowed together from one spot to the next.  The natural stone tile in the rooms was the same tile throughout the walkways.  Driftwood art and furniture and quartz lighting was standard throughout.  Viceroy is simply a masterpiece of beauty.

Viceroy’s Aleta Restaurant Breakfast Buffet Review

Viceroy offers several onsite restaurant dining options.  Most are closed during the off season, but Aleta is open year round for breakfast.  What a beautiful little restaurant with amazing decor.

The breakfast spread was beautiful, with danishes and pastries, yogurts, fruits, berries, granola, omelet stations, bacon and sausages, pancakes, french toast, and more.  Everything was pretty good, especially the peach and amaretto Danish I had. It was very flaky, was filled with peach jam, and had amaretto in the crust layers.  Awesome!

I ordered a couple eggs to go with the rest of my continental breakfast at the omelet bar. Mistake. My breakfast cost $30 and Sadie’s $22.  $8 for 2 eggs. Stupid. $65 for breakfast…. Ridiculous!  The breakfast was good, but only worth half the price. We won’t do that again.

After breakfast, you can relax on the beach, take a dip in one of the many resort pools, or hang out in your suite’s own lounge pool.  A person could just stay at the Viceroy for their entire trip and enjoy the experience, however, Anguilla offers so much more to experience outside the art and rich world of Viceroy.  Go explore, it’s well worth it!  And while doing so, make sure you have lunch at Tasty’s Restaurant. What a tasty place!  I can’t recommend it enough.  If you only get to eat at one place on the island, this is where you need to go.

After lunch at Tasty’s, go for a drive around the island.  You’ll find goats, nice people, and amazing beaches everywhere!  We ended up driving down a new road which landed us right on Rendezvous Bay. What a gorgeous beach!  We went straight in the water and spent a couple hours looking for seashells on the shallow watered shores. We had a blast together picking up shells and corral chunks with our feet and hands. We felt like a couple of little kids just goofing around in the surf, mesmerized by the shells we found. The sand was super soft and a joy to play in.  This was one of the highlights of our Caribbean honeymoon.

Viceroy Anguilla Sunset Lounge

Even if you don’t stay at Viceroy while on Anguilla, you owe it to yourself to enjoy a sunset at their breathtaking Sunset Lounge.  They serve drinks and food, and have a great pool to watch the sunset in.  I’m not sure which was more beautiful, the sunset, or my sweet wife (OK, I do…..it was my wife).

How Expensive is Viceroy Anguilla?

Viceroy Anguilla is an incredibly beautiful resort on one of the Caribbean’s most beautifully beached islands.  Everything about the place is art.  But that all comes with a price.  Our 5 day stay was over $7,000 for our Ocean View Suite, but it was worth every penny for our honeymoon.  But if our checking account would have permitted, we would have gone with the private villa option of $30,000 a week.  But whatever your budget is, Viceroy Anguilla is simply amazing.
