Lets start out that there are no Four Seasons or Ritz's on Orient Bay. This is a typical European type Hotel in my opinion. The Rooms need a little Sprucing up but they are plenty big enough.
The room we had had its own Fridge which we got some Diet Coke's, Beer and Wine for a little appetizer before Dinner. You are a one minute walk to the Orient Beach and if you can't enjoy this beach something is wrong. For ten Euros or so you can get Chair and a few Drinks and just enjoy the beach. Mostly a couples place and I would bring any Kids.
The little Town on Orient had quite a few Restaurants that were very nice if you just want to get dinner and Crash. A 20 dollar taxi Ride and you can go to different areas for Dinner.
It rained virtually every Day but for 10-20 minutes and was spectacular the rest of the time.
The Breakfast was nice and the Staff was quite helpful.
It is not an inexpensive island.
United has a non Stop from Chicago on Sat and Sunday.
All in all it is a great trip but if I had to do it over I would have made it a ten day trip and spent five days here and five in Anguilla.
