My husband and I discovered the Guanahani when we were dating over 15 years ago and it continues to exceed our expectations. Many of the staff have stayed with the hotel and have welcomed our growing family enthusiastically for an annual visit. The hotel is the perfect balance of peaceful relaxation and French coolness. In addition, the culinary experience at... More

This hotel was divine. We spent 11 glorious days and could have stayed forever. The grounds are beautiful, the staff superb, the food top notch and our room had a private terrace and a million dollar view of the bay. Possibly the best vacation we have ever taken.

We stayed at Guanahanai with three teenage children and our accommodations were a three bedroom villa with our own private pool. We actually could have spent most of our time just in our villa with room service and would have been happy but we did venture out. Breakfast at the Indigo was beyond delicious every morning with a sumptuous display... More

From the moment we were greeted at the airport by Sylvan from Hotel Guanahani, we just knew we had chosen the right hotel. Sylvan was very warm in welcoming us to the island and the complimentary airport transfer that the hotel offers is a nice touch and the perfect beginning to what we promise will be an exceptional stay.

Just visited hotel for a day trip to island. Came over for lunch, and beach. Lunch was very expensive, and ok. Service was outstanding, pleasant staff. Beach is gorgeous, and private. Pool is lovely. Bathroom by pool, has a shower which is a nice feature for people like us, who weren't staying overnight.

I spent a week here with my entire family- 10 people in total and 4 children included. There is a private beach in the hotel and even some toys scattered around and the pool is right by the beach which makes life with kids easier.
