From Friday's newspaper, favorite family vacations:

Rendezvous Bay and Shoal Bay East, Anguilla Anguilla sports silky and uncrowded Caribbean sands. "Rendezvous Bay stretches for 2 miles, and the nearby salt ponds attract whistling ducks, laughing gulls and other birds. At Shoal Bay East, kids can snorkel the shore-side reef or walk the beach looking for the tiny, silvery fish caught in tide pools." "

Anguilla in Conde Nast Traveller

George Lawrence writes:

I just received the July issue of Conde Nast Traveler magaine and on pages 120-121 is a two page picture of a blonde woman walking along Long Bay, with the white sand and aquamarine water. A gorgeous photo. On page 140 is an article titled "Boutique Beach Resorts" which mentions Blue Waters, Trattoria Tramonto, Rendezvous Bay Hotel and Villas, Cedar Grove Cafe and Temenos. Each hotel gets about three sentences.

Forum Posts on Allamanda

Read what some recent visitors have to say about the Allamanda Beach Club:

"We stayed there in March. It was great! Not too fancy, just clean and simple. Most rooms have a nice balcony or patio. ... The top floor rooms have the best views and they have a small pool. We think they have one of the very best restaurants on the island (Zara's)! Gwen's, just a short walk down to the beach is our most favorite place to "HANG OUT" in more ways than one! "
