Renting a car versus staying at the hotel

Renting a car versus staying at the hotel

I have done so much research on this and I still can't figure... We are looking to stay at Cap Juluca for 5-7 days and are debating doing the dinner meal plan versus renting a car and exploring the island for dinners. I realize everyone says the island is magnificent and to explore away - but we like our rum punches and wine (maybe too much! ) - Are the restaurants in town really WORTH it? Or will we be overly satisfied with the restaurants on the Cap Juluca property? We are looking to relax and stay put... but don't want to be dissapointed when dinner comes around!

rent a car for after your first couple of days there - Cap is great but you really should try at least a few other restaurants. not only is there great food at other places but also a change of vibe would just seem like a nice addition to any vacation. but different strokes. I can't imagine NOT enjoying staying put at cap for a week if I'd never been to Anguilla before but knowing what's out there makes me say - get out and see what else there is.

Before I went into business for myself, the companies for whom I worked used to put me up in some extremely upscale resorts and hotels. Although I enjoyed those stays, I did not take advantage of the opportunities to go out and explore the local feel of the communities, which I now regret.. Over the years, all the resorts began to look and feel the same and became quite boring. Now we much prefer to stay in small local hotels and apartments and get the real feel of the communities around them. By all means, rent a car and experience the wonderful people of Anguilla. Obviously, if you spend a lot of money to stay at a resort, you may feel compelled to "get your money's worth" but I do think you miss something by staying holed up in one.
