Carimar Beach Club received the SAFE ENVIRONMENT AWARD and is certified for stays.

Here are the most important facts:

Arrivals BEFORE July 1st, 2021:

Quarantine is still required (reduced to 7 days for fully vaccinated guests). Ask for our discounted ‘Stay-in-Place’ Packages and details about procedures and entry requirements. 

Arrivals from July 1st to September 30th, 2021:

Only vaccinated visitors can enter Anguilla. There will be no more quarantine required, no more testing on the island, and no entry fee to come to Anguilla. However, during this phase, visitors still have to apply to visit Anguilla and complete a Covid-19 PCR Test 3-5 days prior to arrival. The negative test together with the proof of full vaccination needs to be sent to the application office prior to travel to receive clearance to enter Anguilla. For families with children (who are not vaccinated yet), special conditions apply, but they are still welcomed to visit Anguilla this summer.  

Arrivals starting October 1st, 2021:

Only vaccinated visitors can enter Anguilla. The same conditions as above apply, however, there will be no Covid-19 PCR Test needed prior to travel and the travel application process will be removed. Visitors must present proof to be fully vaccinated prior to boarding the ferry/boat or plane to Anguilla. For families with children (who are not vaccinated yet), special conditions apply, but they are still welcomed to visit Anguilla. 

Since February 2021, Anguilla received 20,000 vaccine doses and until the end of May, more than 9,000 persons received their first dose. It is the hope that at least 70% of the island will be vaccinated by this summer (out of a population of 15,000). All our employees are already vaccinated. As of June 1st, Anguilla one of the very view places in this world that has no active cases of Covid-19. 

We at Carimar will keep certain safety protocols in place to ensure our guests a safe and enjoyable Anguilla experience without restrictions. 

Despite having fewer guests last year, we again upgraded some things at Carimar Beach Club: We invested over US$ 120,000 into our tennis courts and now have two state-of-the-art synthetic grass turf tennis courts for our guests. We also added a couple of Kayaks and Paddleboards to be used by our guests free of charge (a small setup fee applies). More improvements are planned in the coming months. 

New Cancellation Policy Due to COVID-19:

We hope that you and your family are all safe and healthy. Although we know that traveling can
still be still challenging in these times, Carimar is fully operational and open and is looking forward
to welcoming our guests back to Anguilla – whenever you feel comfortable visiting us again. We at Carimar will be ready to welcome you back.

We have implemented safety measures to make sure to keep everybody safe and still have their special time in their ‘home away from home’ with us in Anguilla. Although our protocols will be eased and Anguilla is opening its borders on July 1st, 2021, without the need to quarantine, we do understand that we all do not know with 100% certainty what the next months will bring.  To that end, until further notice, Carimar Beach Club is offering you flexibility, in case your travel plans are affected by unexpected official travel restrictions. In such a case, you can reschedule your vacation with us at no additional costs for a period of up to 13 months from your original arrival date. As an alternative, we can also offer a
full refund of your deposit should your reservation be affected by the COVID-19 crisis and fall
within the 60-day cancellation period. Please contact us at carimar@carimar.com or call us at 264-497-6881 to answer any questions or to reschedule your trip.

When you are ready, we will be ready to provide you with a much-needed escape to relax and
rejuvenate after this incredibly stressful period. Please take care of yourselves and your family.

Our Commitment to Health and Safety:

We are committed to putting the safety and security of our guests and team members as our
number one priority.  Prior to making a reservation and arrival at our hotel, please ask us to send
to you our detailed procedure guideline on how to apply for your visit and to make sure your
preparation and travel itself will be easy and safe without surprises.

At Carimar Beach Club, the health and safety of our guests and team members is our primary
concern. To that end, we have taken significant measures in response to the Novel Coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic to safeguard the well-being of all who visit our small resort. In
conjunction with direction from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), World
Health Organization (WHO) and updates from local health departments as well as guidelines
published by Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association’s Safe Stay checklist, Carimar Beach Club
has crafted a suite of measures and procedures dedicated to ensuring the cleanliness of our resort
and the safety of our community. Carimar received last September the official ‘Safe Environment
Certificate’ by our Health Department and is ready to welcome you back.  It is crafted to reassure
all that health and safety are foremost in our hearts and minds.
