My husband and I stayed at the Allamanda Beach Club for 8 days recently (Feb./Mar. 2016). It was the perfect place for us as it was affordable, quiet, clean, and it had a friendly staff. Our room was on the ground floor overlooking the pool area. The grounds were well kept and the pool was always clean and large enough for doing my laps. We had the room with a king-sized bed, a fully-equiped kitchen with all of the appliances in good working order, a good-sized bathroom area, and a lovely private patio in front of our door. Anything that we required (hair dryer, can opener) was promptly arranged. Our manager, Ernie, was a delightful woman, who made our trip to Anguilla extra special.

The location of the hotel is near the Shoal Beach East area. There is a short walk down a cleared path to the beach closest to the hotel. This little beach has been affected by erosion and hurricane damage in recent years, but there are still areas where one can go snorkelling. There are over 33 beautiful beaches on Anguilla so there are lots of other beaches to explore while on this island.

Unless you are staying at one of the very expensive, mega resorts (over $1000 U.S./night), you need a car to get around Anguilla if you want to visit more than one beach or have lunch/dinner at several of the excellent restaurants found on the island.
We would often have a late lunch at a restaurant after a day on the beach and then we would have a quiet, casual dinner in our room. We prefer staying at hotels where we have our own kitchen so that we are not obligated to always eat at the same resort restaurants.

Anguilla is a very special island with the some of the most beautiful, pristine beaches and warm, calm seas. There are no casinos, crowded beaches, or duty-free shopping. There are beach places and resorts where there is entertainment, especially on the weekends, but to me, Anguilla is all about total relaxation, away from the hustle and bustle of resort living.

My husband and I would recommend Allamanda Beach Club to anyone who is looking for this kind of holiday.

The Allamanda Beach Club is a nice little hotel, conveniently located near Shoal Bay East on the North East end of Anguilla. We stayed at the Allamanda for three nights recently. The group included my wife and two teenagers.

The hotel is very quiet, it has 12 rooms in the main building and there may be a few more in the property as well. We stayed in Room #9 on the second floor. This room as two double beds.

Staff: The hotel is lightly staffed, Ernie (female) in the office with a couple of other ladies doing cleaning. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. Ernie in particular is a lovely lady with a beautiful smile and an engaging personality. The cleaning ladies were a little quieter, possibly a little shy. The office was open Monday to Friday so Saturday and Sunday are self serve.

Rooms: We arrived on a Saturday, Ernie had left the key and welcome letter for us in the box on the stairs. It was easy to find and the instructions simple to follow. We let ourselves into our room, the room was extremely clean in all respects, the towels were of good quality and plentiful, the sheets and bedspreads were all of good quality. The kitchen was fairly well equipped, certainly for our purposes as we did not plan to do any cooking. The appliances are getting a little dated, but everything worked, similarly the kitchen was also dated but quite functional. The bathroom was clean and everything worked well.

The view from our room was of the pool, partially obstructed. Rooms on the third floor are afforded an ocean view, also partially obstructed by palm trees and the mangroves but still a very nice view of the azure blue waters of Shoal Bay.

Location: The hotel is located on Upper Shoal Bay-East. The hotel used to have a very nice beach of it's own but in recent years erosion and rising water has for the most part eliminated this attribute. It is only a short drive to Lower Shoal Bay East, one of the best beaches on the island. The hotel is also very close to Island Harbour and Savannah Bay where you will find some wonderful restaurants and another lovely quiet beach.

Food: The east end of Anguilla is quieter than the west end and "The Valley" but offers so much! Hibernia (fine dining), Le Bon Pain (excellent coffee and pastries) Artisan Pizza (wonderful wood oven, Nepalese style pies and On Da Rocks for fresh seafood, right off the boats. Finally at Savannah Bay and Junk's Hole is Nat's Palm Grove an incredible (but not inexpensive) find for some of the best lobster, crayfish and johnny cakes on the island.

Value: Ernie has posted rates but depending on time of year and vacancy was happy to discuss pricing and so we were able to establish an acceptable rate for our stay. In my opinion Allamanda represents wonderful value, as the location, cleanliness, quiet environment and functional nature of the property was really good.

Pool: This was the only disappointment. The pool did not seem to be fully functional. The water levels had been dropped so we were unsure and avoided using it. The Hot Tub was also not in service. These were not big issues for us as we went to the beach each day but it would have been nice to have them operating.

If you are looking for good basic accommodation with kitchen facilities in a great location Allamanda should not be overlooked.

Room tip: If travelling as a couple, then rooms 1-6 on the third floor provide the best views. Families requiring two double beds will need to consider the second floor. All rooms are either ocean or pool view.

This was our second time at the Anguilla Allamanda in the last 12 years so we thought we knew what to expect. The price is no doubt the best on the island, but one of the reasons we were prepared to put up with the tired and less than spotless resort was its proximity to Shoal Bay East beach. You used to be able to walk to the beach (about 3 minutes walk) through the Allamanda property. The beach has now been washed away.....so a 15 minute walk to the beach or a 5 minute car ride. Very disappointing especially as we weren't told this upon booking. The rooms, bed and air conditioning are Ok but very basic. Also bring your body bug spray as I was eaten alive, even on the third floor. Once I started to use some Deet I was Ok - spouse did not have a problem. I am sweeter I guess. Be prepared to drive as no amenities , except Gwen's and Zara's for food and now without beach access to the magnificent Shoal Bay east, the Allamanda has lost the main thing it had going for it.

Room tip: 3rd floor maybe

Just want to let you guys know of my Caribbean vacation. It was one of the best vacation ever!!!! It was on the small Caribbean island of Anguilla and we stayed at the allamanda beach club in shoal bay. Shoal bay was voted the best beach in the Caribbean because it is great for snorkeling. and even though i have never snorkeled on any other Caribbean beach, i really can say this was perfect. The hotel was small and cozy. It was not a luxury hotel but for the price you pay it is absolutely worth it. we stayed two weeks and paid 2880.00 for one of their standard rooms. INCLUDING TAX AND SERVICE CHARGE. If you guys are looking for a cheap hotel in the Caribbean i can say this is definitely worth it. Check out their fb page The Allamanda Beach Club or go to their website. Allamanda.ai

The staff was great and very helpful. The Maintenance guy gave up jellies every morning. Beverly our cleaner was so nice and easy to talk to. The place was well kept. If you are thinking of going for a family vacation, a couples vacation or if you would like to escape from the noise and the hustle and bustle for a while, Allamanda is the place for you to be.

Definitely going back

Room tip: Rooms on the second and first floor offer a better view and is more spacious
