Thursday November 7, 2002 (cont.):  As we were driving back towards the villa, I noticed some white buildings that I had no idea what they were.  I knew we had hit the major resorts (and I avoided Cove Castles because my personal opinion is that those building are hideous and a blight on the landscape of Anguilla) and I could not for the life of me imagine what they were.

So we decided to drive up there and see what they were.  We were met at the gate by a guard who told us they were the Temenos villas.  Before I could stop her she said she would call someone to give us more information so I decided the polite thing to do would be to wait for them since she was already on the phone.  I was glad I did as Richard Pleasants, who is the executive director, came to meet us and was very very nice.  He informed us under normal circumstances he would take us for a tour but as they had guests at this time that would not be possible.  We wondered if all 3 villas were rented to different parties or if one party with more money than they knew what to do with had rented the entire complex.  I guess we'll never know.

Rating the above resorts (for us) we would stay at them in this order:  

  1. Malliouhanna - We love the awesome setting.
  2. Frangipani - We like that it is so small and intimate.
  3. Cuisinart - So much time on vacation is spent outdoors and the grounds here are second to none.  A wonderful place to spend time.
  4. Cap Juluca - Nothing much here appealed to us.  Everyone says the bathrooms here are to die for but I don't spend much of my vacation in the bathroom (hopefully) so that is not a major consideration for us.

We stopped at Caribbean Silkscreen to get some shirts for folks back home.  They have great shirts - I highly recommend shopping there!

From there we stopped at Tasty's for lunch.  This was our first time eating anything but breakfast at Tasty's and we were not disappointed!  Mike had a cheeseburger and I had the Chicken Salad.  $25 for an absolutely wonderful meal!
