The views at SALT had been simply unimaginable!!
Lunch at Half Shell Bar
Our favourite spot for lunch was off the overwhelmed path a bit – Half Shell Bar on Barnes Bay Seashore. It’s important to stroll by the villas to seek out it, however it’s definitely worth the stroll. The bar is true on the seaside and also you simply can’t beat the view!
The meals was additionally wonderful, and we had fish tacos twice and shrimp skewers.
Mahi Mahi Tacos

Thomas dwelling his greatest birthday life
In the direction of the tip of our journey, we ended up simply skipping lunch! We ate a later breakfast as we adjusted to trip life and weren’t actually hungry in the midst of the day. That was good as a result of it saved us $100+.
The workers additionally introduced round little snacks right here and there – a smoothie shot, a bit style of guacamole and three chips.
And someday my good friend Brent shared his quesadilla – that was a pleasant snack!
I liked the white wine sangria made with peach schnapps at Half Shell!

We had a desk overlooking the ocean all three nights and the spotlights proven on sea turtles and big tarpon fish! We despatched some movies residence to the boys.
Head’s up that the wines had been $18-29 a glasses, however the one time I splurged on the costly cabernet it was price it.
We had ceviche and the conch tostada, each had been scrumptious.
Johnny Desserts “Bread Basket”
Our favourite half about SALT had been the Johnny muffins! They ready the salt desk facet crushed with basil and mint, and the muffins made with flour and cornmeal jogged my memory of a mixture between a pancake and a biscuit.
Pork Chop with plantain and a rum sauce
Salt muffins and yucca fries
Molten Chocolate Cake
We had this virtually each night time and devoured it!!
To finish probably the most wonderful dinner, along with your test they convey one other drink on the home – a mango smoothie spiked with one thing good! And little tiny mango gummy bears too.

For a extra informal dinner, we dined at Sundown Lounge which serves Asian impressed dishes and sushi. You don’t want a reservation right here.
The bar is open air and GORGEOUS and so they had stay music two of the weekend nights.

We had lobster and tempura shrimp sushi that had been among the greatest we’ve ever had!
Dinner at Blanchards
We had dinner one night time at Blanchards, which we took a taxi to from the resort (for about $25 with tip). Blanchards looks like a beloved native spot, and so they had a protracted listing of its historical past and charitable contributions to the group on the again of the menu.
In addition they have an off-the-cuff taco restaurant on the property.
Native Grouper + Jerk Hen
The spotlight although was the Cracked Coconut – a Blanchard’s well-known dessert! It was like chocolate bark within the form of a coconut full of ice cream. Beloved it! We walked residence underneath the complete moon on the seaside.

Plus you’ll be able to add further gratuity for wonderful service, too.

In case you are a giant eater or prefer to have cocktails all day lengthy, I might double that every day value.
A be aware on water: Bottled water was provided at each meal for $10. We didn’t notice this at first and paid for a couple of bottles of nonetheless water. Then we switched to glowing water if we had been going to must pay for it anyhow. Lastly we realized we might simply ask for faucet water and that was nice to drink.
Different Native Eating places
Except for strolling on the seaside, I wouldn’t say that the resort was notably walkable. You needed to take a taxi to go away, though that was straightforward to get from the entrance foyer. You may additionally cost taxis to the room.
Subsequent door to the 4 Seasons there was a brand new membership referred to as Savi. We virtually went there a couple of occasions, however we’re simply not late night time occasion individuals so we by no means did. Additionally simply down the seaside was an off-the-cuff spot referred to as The Straw Hat.
Our buddies went to Sharky’s and stated it was good, and we had a reservation at Mango’s that we ended up altering since strolling down the seaside to go there was virtually inconceivable with the tide up and we didn’t wish to do a taxi.
Issues To Do At The 4 Seasons Anguilla
Except for basking in sunshine and sipping cocktails, we did do some exploring on foot. We walked to the sting of Meads Bay Seashore. I pretended I used to be on Survivor!
There are a few boat excursions you’ll be able to take to the smaller close by islands. Our buddies did one and stated it was simply OK. The water was too tough for them to truly get off the boat that day.
Thomas and I performed tennis someday! This was our first time taking part in collectively. We had been glad the courts and tennis racquets had been complimentary, and we simply needed to pay $10 for some new balls.
Just a few of the mornings we went to the health middle earlier than breakfast. It was very good with loads of gear. I largely walked on the treadmill at a steep incline and Thomas sweated it out on the stair grasp.
Watching The World Cup
We obtained to look at within the open air!
The 4 Seasons Spa!
We obtained massages throughout our journey and so they had been nice! The spa was lovely and had its personal infinity pool and steam room to make use of whereas ready.
Suggestions For Visiting The 4 Seasons Anguilla
The Free Wifi Was Nice
The Wifi on the property was nice!! Wifi could be hit and miss and a few resorts make you check in each time by a browser, however this wifi was like being at residence after an preliminary check in. The sign reached manner down the seashores too.
We didn’t go for a global mobile phone plan, and I’m glad we didn’t as a result of it wasn’t needed. SXM airport additionally had free wifi.
You will get a free 4 Seasons tote on the entrance desk, so don’t pack a seaside bag!
Sunscreen on the swimming pools
There is no such thing as a must deliver sunscreen or a water bottle – each are plentiful. They’d SPF 30 and 50 in addition to aloe on the swimming pools and seashores.
Carry tons of money in low payments for suggestions. Greater than you assume you’ll want!
The Swimming pools Had been Freezing
In case you are a pool individual, you may not thoughts, however the swimming pools had been FREEZING! We needed to psych ourselves up for a plunge within the sundown pool, however as soon as we had been in it was price it.
The ocean was fairly cool too – not just like the Carolina seashores in the summertime.
Attn: Beer Lovers
In case you are a giant IPA drinker, you’ll be disillusioned that the one beers that they had had been lagers. Presidente, Caribe, Crimson Stripe, Heineken. Thomas switched to Pina coladas and rum punch!
For the espresso snobs (like us)
We had each a Nespresso maker and a Keurig machine in our room, which had been nice, however we like actually good huge cups of espresso!
For the espresso snobs (like us!) we advocate going to get to-go espresso on the health middle. It was scrumptious and significantly better than the Keurig.
Was it child pleasant?
There have been youngsters and a few infants on the resort, however I can’t say I might wish to deliver mine. There wasn’t a ton of child actions like water slides and the seaside wasn’t very calm for youths, so I don’t assume mine would have liked it. (Though I obtained a number of texts from the seafood-loving Mazen that he actually wished he may very well be consuming mahi with us!)
There have been these kid-sized lounge chairs that had been so cute! And there’s a youngsters membership for some adults-only time.
Is The 4 Seasons Anguilla Price It?
1,000% sure! This was the nicest resort we’ve ever stayed, and one which we might undoubtedly think about returning to.
Whereas it usually would most likely be too costly for us, studying how one can use bank cards for journey has opened a complete new world of choices.
With a complete world to see, it’s onerous to think about going again to the identical spot, however boy would it not be enjoyable to take action!
