How to Get There
Happy to be back in Paradise. We have seen a lot of places and beaches. But like in Cap Juluca we never found around the world. Now under new management the quality and standard is high. Happy that the people are friendly like all the years before.
Great time and try the Maundays Restaurant.
The Cook from Peru would get minimum 1 Michelin Star. Must try the black prawns and the crayfish.
Don’t miss the creme brule.
My wife and I came to Cap Juluca for our 4th time and were blown away by the improvements made to an already amazing place. We loved the Cap Shack for drinks and views, the more modern decor, bicycles to get to the rooms, and new infinity pool and guest programs like sabering champagne.
The things we love about the hotel like private beachfront suites, excellent food and amazing staff have not changed. Andre the food and beverage manager, Henrique, Justin and Barbie from cap shack made hanging at the bar so much fun. Ricardo at the beach was gracious and so friendly.
Despite some new competiton, Cap Juluca remains the premier resort on the island and is truly one of the best private beaches in the world. Your will not be disappointed.
We had our wedding and honeymoon at Belmont Cap Juluca. In short, the staff of this paradise went the extra mile to make everything perfect. Here’s a couple specifics:
First, a description of the facility might be helpful. This is not a resort with one large building. Instead, it is a string of buildings that hugs Maundays Bay, located on the southern portion of the western tip of the island of Anguilla. There is a main building the houses the reception area, a bar and pool-side restaurant, and the resort offices. There is a separate restaurant building where the breakfast buffet (more about that later) is housed. Then there is a reception building where parties are hosted. The sleeping rooms (suites) are four-to-a-cottage, and all the cottages are situated along the beach and every room faces the beach.
The beach is nothing short of perfect white sand and emerald clear (and calm) water. There’s no seaweed on the beach, none of that brown foam that seems ubiquitous for most beaches. Really it’s just plain perfect. Every day on this beach looks like a postcard; even the locals will tell you it’s the nicest beach on the island. You wade out into the water and can swim, snorkel or float for hours in this gentle bay of the Caribbean. There’s plenty of comfortable ches lounges for guests, and the staff is quick to come around and offer a full menu of drinks and food delivered to your beach chair. And even though the resort was fully booked during our trip, the beach never got crowded.
Okay so next is the room situation. All I can say is that while it ain’t cheap, you get what you pay for. Expect first class everything. The rooms are large and very, very comfortable. Either leave the sliding full-wall glass doors closed and enjoy the cold AC, or you can open up the room and enjoy a full Caribbean cabana feel. Each room has a large patio or deck with a table and chairs, as well as a couple lounges. There’s also a separate private sunning spot if you’d like to go full Monty.
The bathroom was large, with an indoor/outdoor shower, soaking tub, private toilet area, double sinks, double closets, and all the amenities you’ll find in a nice hotel (iron and board, toiletries, lotions, etc, etc).
The mini bar wasn’t mini. It was actually one of the most incredible features I’ve seen in a hotel room.
Then there’s the food. Everything was amazing. The breakfast buffet might be worth the trip all on its own. It’s one of those buffers that spans multiple rooms, and includes both the traditional American fare as well as a more European set of options, plus seafood and local options. I think I gained five pounds each morning. And you’ll eat at an open-air dining room with a beautiful view of the beach and the bay.
The best feature of the resort, however, is the people. Everyone was genuinely friendly. They each seemed personally dedicated to making sure we were happy and having fun. They went to incredible lengths. From offering rides on the golf cart, to stopping by the room to ask if we wanted anything, to learning our names, etc. the service was Top Shelf.
Now, in our case we were also getting married at the resort, so that added a whole new level of attention to detail and service. They treated my wife like a queen the entire time. Every possible detail was attended to in a classy fashion. When the men in the wedding party realized that many of our shirt buttons had been damaged at the cleaners, an hour before the wedding, the hotel staff came forward with needle and thread and saved the day.
The hotel staff built us an arch on the beach and set up the chairs, along with a spot for light food and Champaign for immediately after the ceremony (while pictures were being taken). It couldn’t have been better, and our guests were blown away by how nice of a job the resort did.
The food at the reception was unbelievable. (You have got to see how they grill the seafood, by the way!!) The DJ recommended by the resort was awesome. Even some of the staff and photographers got into the dancing near the end.
I could go on and on about our experience at Belond Cap Juluca, but hopefully you get the idea. It is not cheap. Just take a deep breath (and maybe take a second mortgage :). But if you want a true world class resort experience with incredible service and a lifetime of memories, this might the place to go.
