Sydans is both great value for money and full of local Caribbean characters. No its not top end luxury, but staying here you get to see the real Anguilla. The room was large (on second floor room 204) with a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Faultlessly clean; bedding changed every other day. Very comfortable giant king size bed and both air con and ceiling fan.
Anne the owner could not have been more helpful. What ever you needed she would get it for you.
Fantastic location, literally 30 second walk from Sandy Ground beach, which was lovely. The are about 8 bars and restaurants all within easy walking distance. From the peer there is a regular boat over to Sandy Island only $10.
Only one criticism the water pressure in the shower was very poor, but hey I could live with that. Take ear plugs because the cockerels and dogs will wake you up at some unearthly hour otherwise.
Cant recommend enough and would definitely stay here again.

A very good basic inn in an idylic location. Ann and her family extended a very warm welcome to us and nothing was too much trouble. I shall leave feeling I have made some very good and genuine friends in Anguilla and will return one day to Sydans.

Room Tip: rooms on ground floor tended to have a bit more space

Anyone who has looked for accommodation in Anguilla will know it is not cheap. This offers real value for money, yes it has seen better days, but the rooms are a decent size, very well cleaned and the staff under the owner Ann could not do enough to make you feel welcome and the location 50 yards from the beach.
Some of the reviews are unfair how can you compare this to a 200 pound a night hotel. This is like a travel lodge good beds zircon and free wifi.

I've stayed at the Sydans both times during my 2 trips to Anguilla and am thinking about going back in the new year. I will give Anne Edwards a call or email to check availability at the Sydans. I was last there February 2009. Although the suite I had was a bit run down overall it served me well. I really enjoy the small balcony overlooking the salt pond and the fact that I can cook my own meals in the suite. And, if you go downstairs to the inhouse store early enough you will be able to buy very good baguette. It's great being in Sandy Ground and staying at Anne's establishment. She and her daughter work very hard. If you need a taxi, rental vehicle or have any questions, just ask Anne.

(please disregard the 2011 date within the form - there was no option for dates in 2009/2010.)

It's cheap - feels cheap.
It's a dump - but the rooms are huge.
It's dirty - but close to a beach, bars and lots of free parking.
The doors and windows don't really lock - but it seems safe
Has free wireless - very slow
When you return home you will wash everything - including your suitcase.
You will totally forget about how bad it is when you visit Meads Bay or Shoal Bay
