Le Guanahani was wonderful! From the moment we arrived at the airport, we were greeted and assisted by the hotel's friendly drivers. Upon arrival at reception greeted again by helpful and smiling associates with beverages. The rooms were clean and nicely appointed. The food and service at Indigo restaurant was fantastic! We had breakfast included, which was outstanding. We also... More

Full disclosure: this is at least our 5th trip in 11 years to this fabulous hotel; we have kind of lost count! I had been keeping this secret "home away from home" to ourselves, but it is such a wonderful, special place, especially with a fresh new look and manager, I can no longer in good conscience keep this hotel...

The Guanahani's location has always made it our first choice when staying in St Barts. The private beach, large suites and beautiful grounds have always overcome any other issues. This year, the new sign out front with updated font tells you right away that the Guanahani is still striving to stay the best. The rooms have all been remodeled with... More

My husband and I visited St Barths last week with 2 adult children, and 10 and 12-year old grandchildren, and selected Guanahani as it seemed geared more toward a family trip. Apparently, so did 99% of the other guests - a number of whom had small children who hadn't taken the time to read the very tactfully worded welcome note... More

My family and I returned from St. Barthes a few days ago from a weeklong stay at Le Guanahani. It was an experience we'll long treasure. We've travelled extensively in the Caribbean and stayed at some lovely resorts, but nothing we've done before exceeds the quality of our visit to Le Guanahani. From the moment we arrived until the moment... More

Arriving at Le Guanihani, you will be most impressed with the beautifully landscaped grounds and the spectacular sea views. We were showed all around the place and finally arrived at our room.

This was our family of four's second trip to Le Guanahani. We stayed in a lovely two bedroom suite with it's own pool and beautiful view of the ocean. The property is very well-kept...right down to an employee raking up seaweed off the beach. The beach and the water aren't the most beautiful that St. Barth has to offer but... More

The beach at Le Guanihani is wonderful. There are also many charming touches at the resort, the most lovely of which may be the secluded deck over the sea with comfy chairs and a breathtaking sunset view.
