Guests rooms are a minimum of 720-square feet in size, with outdoor Jacuzzis and private pools readily available in the junior suites and suites. Yet it is still dining that is the priority here, its restaurant under the guidance of the Michelin-starred restauranteur, Michel Rostang, whose gourmet presentations are very much in tune with the chвteaux wines from the 25,000 bottle wine cellar.Go to the Anguilla Hotel page to see all the recommended hotels.
