If you have a bucket list, please add a breakfast on the Casa Grande terrasse at La Giralda. I stayed there the first 12 days of August with my wife and we are still dreaming about it. Five houses in a beautiful jungle overlooking the sea...The view from every room of our house (Casa Isabella) was stunning. The staff bent... More

The journey getting there was a long one, and daunting... and so very worth it! I could never have imagined such a perfect vacation. I don't even know where to begin; words could never do justice to the kind of experiences I had. I fear a novel is to follow... I went to La Giralda on a whim, after having... More

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. While most hotels offer nice facilities and decent service, this hotel focuses on the experience. It all began when we stepped off a prop plane in Guanaja and were picked up by boat for the 15 minute ride to the hotel. When we arrived, Cecilia, the hotel manager, and Ivan, the... More

I've been to most of the islands of the Caribbean, and many other islands besides: Maldives, Indonesia, South Pacific, Greece, Hawaii, etc. I've stayed at boutique hotels, Aman and Aman-esque hotels, and rented my share of villas, including several in Mustique. This place beats them all. This isn't particularly surprising, as this hotel is the pet, personal project of Lane... More

This hotel is really a great place located right on the beach. You can hear the ocean from your rooms and sleep really nice with that sound all night. Went there for scuba diving and the diving around there is superb and some of the best in the entire Caribbean Ocean. The hotel staff is trained well and offer 5... More

I spent two nights in Casa Del Rey with a group of friends earlier this month. Upon arrival, we were welcomed with cold washcloths and coconut water, sipped right from the drupe with a straw. Their staff helped us up to the house with our bags as we marveled at the beauty of it. It felt like a Caribbean palace.... More

We spent a week at La Giralda. We were in Villa Caterina which is 50 feet in the air on the edge of a cliff with amazing views. Below we could see starfish,rays and barracudas in the crystal clear water. We did the island tour with Stephen and then had a private picnic on a deserted beach. Every night we... More

We really enjoyed La Giralda. We had a short stay to check out the place but wish we could of stayed for a week. If you are looking to get away from the big beaches in Roatan then come to Guanaja. You will not be disappointed. The sand was the white and the water was clean and clear. We attended... More

In February, I booked and prepaid for a DIVE trip with La Giralda in March because I saw all the great reviews for it on Trip Advisor. La Giralda misrepresented to me their ability to provide dive services. There was no dive operation either there or in partnership with anyone else on the island. They would not even agree to...

First, the only reason this property didn't get 5 stars is due solely to the repairs needed in the villas (which are minor, but to give it a 5-star rating didn't seem accurate). Everything else, however, was nothing short of 5 stars! Our family just returned from a week at the property and had a fantastic time. I echo all... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of the few private luxury destinations in The Bay Islands of the Caribbean, La Giralda is a 65 acre private sanctuary with spectacular white sand beaches and unbelievable swimming in crystal clear turquoise waters. The hotel is situated on a peninsula with a tropical forest climbing the mountain behind the property and all the villas located on the peninsula itself surrounded by a pristine turquoise bay to one side, home to dolphins, and the clear Caribbean Sea on the other side. ... more   less
