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.

My husband and I stayed at Guanahani for our Honeymoon and LOVED IT! Our room had a fabulous view of the ocean and was equipped with everything we would need.

My family and I have stayed here often over the last 15 years and enjoyed our stay every time. We tried different types of rooms/suites. In April 2014, we stayed in a suite/villa right on the water's edge with a wrap around patio overlooking the water. Room service was prompt and courteous. Very friendly and helpful staff.
