More about Cap Juluca
Cap Juluca is a wonderful hotel with perhaps the best beach on the island. It is VERY expensive, but worth the investment. You may also want to check out the Cuisinart Hotel, which is just down the beach and perhaps an even nicer place to stay!
Villa - $300.00 USD in low season
Cap Juluca and Cuisinart - $500.00 USD in low season Villas are great because they allow you the privacy you may want on your trip.
It was nice to have our own pool and to be able to make our own meals.
Of course, nothing beats a 5 star hotel when the pocketbook allows it!
Nothing But the Best at Cap Juluca
My husband and I visited Anguilla for the first time this past July and stayed at Cap Juluca. I cannot say enough about what an AMAZING trip this was, how BEAUTIFUL Anguilla was, or how MUCH we loved Cap Juluca.
After visiting various places in the Caribbean, I will now be spoiled forever after staying in gorgeous Anguilla, and not want to bother with anyplace else.
Our villa was beautiful with breathtaking views of the ocean and the St. Maartin mountains. The beach was phenominal and we would get up early each morning just to sit and look at the gorgeous blue water.
The service was impeccable. There was not a single staff member who did not greet us as we walked the beach or the road heading for lunch or dinner. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our beach attendant, Carol, never missed a beat bringing us cold towels, sorbet, and a Rubbermaid cooler filled with ice to keep our drinks cool. Upon our arrival at Cap Juluca, we were ushered into a cool room in the lobby and given fabulous rum punches, the staff was really amazing.
We liked all three restaurants on the property... Georges was great for lunch, and Pimms and Kemia were great for dinner. I recommend going offsite at least once and traveling up the road to eat at Caprese which was out of this world for dinner. Excellent 5 star dining and service.
I wholeheartedly recommend Cap Juluca. I had read many reviews about Cap and about the Cuisinart... and I am so glad we stayed at Cap Juluca--we were not disappointed in any way. It was a "pinch me, I'm dreaming" sort of trip. I just can't say enough.
Big Fans of Cap Juluca!
My husband and I got married in Cozumel, and then spent our honeymoon in Anguilla, then St. Barths.
As for Anguilla?we loved Cap Juluca! We stayed there last month and were blown away with the resort. We?ve been to many Caribbean islands, but the beaches on Anguilla were the most beautiful we?ve ever seen.
Check-in was an easy process. They provided us with a lot of information and we were, of course, given the obligatory yummy welcome drinks. Our room was very nice and the view was gorgeous. The bedroom doors open to the patio, and then it?s just a few more steps to beautiful Maunday?s Bay. The water is an incredible color and the sand is like powder. Pictures simply don?t do it justice. We really enjoyed having our own beach attendant, Carol. He was great with recommending things to do and places to eat.
As for the food, we only ate at the resort a few times, but it was always excellent. We had the complimentary continental breakfast every morning, which was brought to our room. The pastries were delicious. We had one lunch at George?s and it was fantastic. Expensive, but worth it. Our other meals, off the resort, were at Smokey?s, Gwen?s, Straw Hat, and Johnno?s. All of our meals on the island were good to great.
We would highly recommend Cap Juluca, especially for a honeymoon. We can?t wait to go back to Anguilla! Did I mention we loved Cap Juluca?
You just Might See a turtle nesting
This Leatherback turtle came right up to the beach at Cap Juluca Hotel to nest in front of the restaurant. It is an awesome sight to see. One these guys have started nesting, there isnt much that will stop them. While turtles populations are generally on the decline, because of a moratorium put in place by the government, sightings are becoming more and more common. This one was approx. 6 foot lonf
Great beach but the hotel isn't worth the money.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Cap Juluca this past July. The beach was beautiful and the water was warm and clear. We enjoyed walking on the secluded beach and eating afternoon sorbet courtesy of the hotel. Although the staff members are friendly and they tried to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, we would NOT recommend Cap Juluca.
Overall, the hotel is too expensive and lacked décor, culture, colorful landscaping and imagination regarding their cuisine. The Chef Challenge was an overpriced ($85 per person) self-serve buffet yet you still had to pay the hotel?s 15% service charge. The meal plan turned out to be a big mistake. One evening, we ordered room service and accidentally received an itemized bill for $164 instead of the set meal plan price. The meal was enjoyable and the setting romantic. However, upon checkout, I noticed we were charged the price of the meal plan, $218.50, even though the food cost less. We enjoyed ourselves but we recommend going to Bora Bora Nui Resort and Spa instead of Cap Juluca.
We stayed a Cap Juluca as the first stage of our honeymoon.
Everything about the resort is elegant luxury and indulgent romance. The villas are perfectly situated and spaced out in order not spoil the relaxed feel of the stunning beach location. Both the restaurants offer a good choice of food, all perfectly cooked and present. The accompanying wine list is about as extensive as I have experienced. We also had the private dining which was so idyllic, I have seen this done at other hotels, but Cap Juluca allowed for us to feel truly alone due to the length of the beach - a definite recommendation.
Our room was amazing; doors opened out onto the beach and the luxury bathroom was complete with a glass wall offering a view of the beach and sea. Breakfast delivered to our terrace every morning has to be the perfect was to start the day.
A Good Hotel, but Average Experience
As a frequent traveler of Caribbean resorts, we usually don't return to a location twice. However, Anguilla captured our hearts last year, so we decided to return again. We stayed at CuisinArt last year and LOVED it, but hated the windy beaches. So, with hesitation, we decided to try Cap Juluca and see if the windy beach problem improved. (it did).
Overall Cap Juluca has an amazing beach and very nice rooms (although a little dated). The service at George's was typical Caribbean - slow service and over priced food. Don't expect anything hot delivered for breakfast - it never came for us - both times we ordered. This is a good resort. I would not say "great" because of its' lack of food and good service. CuisinArt is a great resort, but has a windy beach during this time of year.
One last piece of advice - don't attend the chef's challenge at Geroge's on Monday nights. It is un-imaginative expensive buffet food ($85.00 pp). Instead, go to CuisinArt for it's lobster barbecue for the same price on Tuesday night and you will see an amazing difference in quality of food.
Anguilla is a food lovers paradise and a has beautiful beaches and residents who are quite proud of their tiny island. I would stay at CuisinArt or Mallihouana.
And, finally, visit Zurra for its' awesome white sangria with malibu rum!!
In renovation need...
We stayed in Cap Juluca 4 nights during our honeymoon in the Caribbean. Reading all the great reviews and seeing the prices there we expected it to be something amazing. Unfortunately the hotel is run down and in desperate need of renovation. The bath with a patio is fantastic but the fixtures and fittings still from the 80's. There was also a misunderstanding on our arrival as the room was not ready and we still have been advised to go to the room where we met the housekeepers. When booking the hotel we haven't been advised about the building works .
Also only continental breakfast is included in the room rate.
All staff is really nice not to mention the stunning beach but its not a 5* standard.
Wow! We loved this place. We went away with 3 other couples for our 40th birthdays. We left the kids at home with grandparents. We flew into St. Marteen and booked the private Cap Juluca boat. That's the way to go. The boat ride took about 20 minutes. Then it is a 15 - 20 minute cab ride to the hotel.
When we first pulled into Cap Juluca we were a little leary, but no worries. The rooms were fantastic, clean and spacious. The back bedroom doors literally open up to the most spectactular beach view you have ever seen. You walk right out onto the beach every day from your room. Our room did not have a TV, but they brought us one. Our friends had a flat screen TV. Don't worry every room had internet service. They are in the middle of upgrading their rooms. The beds were very comfortable. Every room has a fully stocked refrigerator.
The staff was lovely and cordial. One thing I should mention...there are no room keys. You lock your room from the inside at night, but otherwise your room is not locked. There are room safes. After a day or two you get used to it.
Everyday the beach attendants would set up our chairs and a mini cooler filled with bottled waters. They also came around with cold towels and Evian spray. At 4:00 PM they would serve complimentary sherbert/ice cream on the beach. We highly recommend one of the boat trips with Elvis. The boat leaves right from the hotel and makes 3 small stops....it was FANTASTIC! We got massages on our patio late one day, that was very nice.
The restaurants were also very good, our favorites were; Pimms, The Straw Hat & Blanchards. I would highly recommend this resort and island. It is a very special place.
