I booked this as a 25th wedding anniversary for my husband and me, but spent less than 24 hours of a prepaid 5 day stay here. For starters, we weren't given a room key and were told nobody needs a room key because it's very safe. (Hello, this is Honduras) When we asked about a key for the room safe... More

I recently planned a surprise birthday party for my husband at La Giralda. I surprised him by inviting 13 of our friends to join us in Guanaja and took over the resort at La Giralda. A lot of planning and work had to go into pulling this off and the owner did a fantastic job helping to make this a... More

We stayed in Villa del Rey in late March. We are a family of 5, all adults, and Villa del Rey was extremely spacious for us. The villa was very beautiful, but the hotel is recovering from a period of closure so there are some things that need updating. We figured if everything was in tip top shape, there is... More

Guanaja is a not the easiest island to get to and so we were very disappointed when the hotel that describes itself as a 'Luxury Boutique Hotel' where you can enjoy 'fresh, gourmet, island-inspired meals, impeccable graceful service and an unspoiled location and luxurious accommodations failed to live up to its advertising. The beach was littered with garbage. Sand-flies are... More

Apologies, but this is a long review, probably the longest I have ever written and I have submitted over 240 hotel reviews. My Husband and I stayed for ten days in the three bedroomed villa, Villa del Rey, during January/February after having spent time travelling through mainland Honduras. We flew into Guanaja airport from La Ceiba and Carlos, the Manager,... More

Let me start by saying, I do not know how anyone could think this place is anything short of exceptional. The view, the jungle, the animals, the beaches were all so breathtaking. The villas are gorgeous, clean and a short distance from anything you could possibly need while you are there. The food was wonderful and the Chef made a... More

Stayed late Feb 2015 for 5 nights. Booked using Groupon...was concerned about why such a place would use such a marketing ploy...but I now understand...they need business. Their website describes the place as a luxurious boutique hotel....well, it takes more than nice furnishings to call oneself a luxury boutique hotel. I had booked (via Cecilia) the Cartuga villa, but once... More

If you want to get away from it all then Guanaja is the place to do it and La Giralda offers the best of everything. Perfectly located – you can watch the sunrise over the ocean and set behind the hills, all from the hammock on your balcony. The whole island is unspoiled and La Giralda and its’ wonderful staff...

If you want to get away from it all and be unplugged (there is no WiFi in your villa) this is it. This trip was a last minute decision and only had 6 days to get all our “ducks” in row. It was tricky to get in touch with Cecilia, she is the booking agent and lives in Roatan, to... More
