This was our first trip to Anguilla – but not our last! We savored every moment of our time spent in Anguilla, but especially when we were staying at the Moonraker. Pick your favorite luxury hotel – and this is better. Pick your favorite superlatives, they can be used interchangeably to describe the Moonraker experience. And believe the reviews and info on the website. They are all true. The Moonraker is set on a bluff, surrounded by absolutely stunning views of the ocean. The location is perfect – it is high enough up to allow a gentle breeze (which means no bugs) and at night, the most fabulous star gazing you can imagine. It was just my husband and me on this trip and we were comfortable the minute we walked in the door and that feeling remained throughout our stay there. The house itself is spacious, comfortably appointed and extremely well maintained. The kitchen is THE best stocked kitchen of any house/villa rental we have experienced, with no detail overlooked, including plenty of dishtowels, cloth napkins and placemats. For the majority of our stay, we cooked dinner “at home” and had our lunches on the beaches. As good as the kitchen was, I must say, the pool is THE BEST! I couldn’t seem to stay out of it. It is deep and huge and oh, so inviting. I don’t believe I paid much attention to the pool when selecting the Moonraker, other than there was a nice one. Here I am, two months later, and still thinking about that darned, enticing pool. When we were there, we were either lounging somewhere on the pool deck or in the pool. Not connected to the Moonraker per se, but relevant to perfecting your stay, we did find some unbelievable places to eat – with both of our regular haunts very nearby the house. Please don’t leave without at least one trip to Nat’s Place at Junk’s Hole, AKA Palm Grove Bar & Grill for lunch. We were at Moonraker for 12 days, and ate at Nat’s for lunch three times! We became addicted to his specially prepared red snapper & grilled lobsters. And Au Ban Pain Bakery. Go early, and daily. Finally, no review of the Moonraker would be complete without a shout out to both Paul, the owner, and Georgia, our housekeeper. They were both very friendly, professional and gracious. Georgia helped to really bring Anguilla and its genuine hospitality right to our doorstep. Thank you Paul, Georgia, Nat and everyone who made our stay so spectacular – in every way! We will see you next year.
