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

I recently stayed at La Giralda with friends for New Years! I was a last minute addition and I really didn't know what to expect of Honduras or the hotel. All I can say is wow what a surprise and adventure it was! I was the first to arrive out of my party. I rode a small fly jumper plane... More

My wife and I stayed here for several days while visiting family in Honduras. Positives: The location and grounds have wonderful potential. It is an amazingly beautiful private penninsula that has several villas constructed in places to maximize the surrounding beauty. The villas are gorgeous when clean. The main house, where all meals are served, is constructed of dark woods... More

If you're looking to be off the beaten path, this is a great place for you. Guanaja is a very remote island. There are no roads. Just boats. La Giralda is a quirky, yet beautiful place to stay with a lot of old world charm. The bungalows are nice and very big. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms. They're high above the... More
