Anguilla - Rendezvous Bay

Rendezvous Bay Hotel & Villas Anguilla$130* Rendezvous Bay Hotel & Villas isn't the glitziest beach resort on the island, but the location is simply spectacular. 46 rooms directly on 50 tropical acres fronting a mile and a half white powdery sand beach. Where's my passport?

This recently renovated resort with white tile floors and rattan furnishings is made up of twelve low rise buildings. If you opt for the Garden view, you'll get the least expensive, but no air-conditioning. For air, you'll need to upgrade to a villa ($275). Don't fret - it doesn't get that hot near the ocean here.

Then at evening gather at the beautiful Cedar Grove, famous for its grilled lobster and goat stew. Leonard "Smoke" Sharplis puts his all into your scrumptious meal.
