I knew that I wasn't getting a 5 star all inclusive resort. What I did expect was what I got and I'm completely happy with it. The cabin we were in was Pirate's Treasure, and it was a one bed. It's basically four walls, a fan and a mini fridge. Nothing extravagant but enough to sleep in. There are lounge... More

my large family -- my wife and myself, our four kids ranging from 17 to 23, my mother-in-law and my sister -- recently had a wonderful vacation staying in several cabins at Ivan's. the beach at White Bay is almost indescribably lovely, and there is excellent snorkeling at both ends of the bay. if you are the sort of traveler...

Recently spent two weeks in a hut on the beach!! Most beautiful beach I have ever been to! Peaceful and quiet. Remember this is camping! Everyone was friendly and the stress free bar is awesome! Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I recently spent 3 days at the guest house. The service was awful, they closed down the kitchen as they had a short power outage and the owners daughter behind the bar had no customer service and an attitude. I would never stay here or recommend it. My back is still recovering from the bed!

Recently stayed for 3 nights in one of cabins. They had our stay dates wrong, but thankfully we had our confirmation email and cabins were available. As stated in most reviews, it's pretty bare. Even though it's a cabin, IT'S CAMPING! Bed, mini-frdige, fan and a bench Didn't take sheets, as they were provided. Not the best quality, but they... More

I would like to take this time to give my opinion on our experience at Ivan's. I would never stay there again I've got some many bad things to say starting with overpriced guest houses. First we stayed 6 nights and not once did we have any maid service to refresh towels remove garbage just so you know there was... More

We had a cabin right on the beach which was really nice. The cabin was spacious enough and had two queen size beds but both were terribly springy... Don't forget to bring your own mosquito net the screens won't stop them. All the other basics are there and are fine although the community kitchen doesn't have a lot of cooking... More

We recently stayed at Ivans with a group of 11. One couple splurged on the condo which was nice, just like the pics and you get a private bathroom and balcony. The rest of us had several cabins which we did not have too high of expectations. A few things that may help: If you choose a cabin, it still... More

A hut on a beach, with decent showers/loos for $75+tax a night. On an expensive island it's reasonable. But, with some effort in terms of maintenance, cleaning, attitude and service (sullen), this place could become quite special. Bar closes at 9 so byo or walk into Great Harbour.

Ivans Guest house is an awesome place to stay for a night or two. Stayed 1 night as they had an opening for 1 night the day we arrived at White Bay on the Ferry from St.Thomas. We even had an awesome view. Very simple with double bed and futon a small frig and a rather large bathroom, nothing fancy.... More
