My husband and I recently visited Guyana EconResort for our honeymoon and found our own little bit of paradise. We stayed in an ocean villa and loved being able to go snorkelling right off the front of our deck and having breakfast boated to us one morning. The included breakfast was excellent (the Macac breakfast is delicious). The free happy... More

We stayed at the Gayana Eco Resort for the last 5 nights of our honeymoon, and words won't do justice to the incredible stay that we had. We did the honeymoon package and stayed in the Ocean Villa, and every member of the staff just couldn't do enough for us. Our luggage was taken from us as soon as we... More

A great place to relax and chill out. With 2 young kids we enjoyed 4 nights in Gayana, as well as making the most of the facilities at Bunga Raya. There is a scheduled boat service you can get for free over there, where there is a much better beach, safe and shallow. Kayaking, snorkelling can be done directly of... More

We just came back from a short two day stay at GER. Overall a fabulous getaway to the island, with clear waters, very friendly and forthcoming staff. The water villas are a germ and definitely a reason to come back to this resort. If you like water activities, this is the place to rest. Magical mornings, bright sunny afternoons and... More

Very nice resort to do nothing but swim in either the pool, snorkel in the ocean or eat and drink. We had an Ocean villa where you step out from your balcony straight into the water. Room was a great size, great linen and toiletries. One thing though that spoilt the villa was the bathroom. Outdated and a musty smell.... More

Lovely accommodation in a relaxing environment. Recommended for couples, not sure I would bring young children here though. Food was fresh and tasty, overall a fantastic holiday with brilliant memories.

The resort is located @ the Gayana island. The room and pool is nice for a sun and beach holiday. Spa and restaurant inside highly recommended. Don't forget to visit the preservation center inside the resort.

Dear all, My family and I had recently stayed there during the Easter holidays. This was a family vacation with a young child. We had booked the Palm Villa. We were surprised when we arrived to find that the villa did not have any door guards/bolts/chains for you to lock from the inside. This is a requirement of 5-star hotel... More
