“A little slice of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We had an amazing 4 night stay at Hotel Guanahani & spa and only wish itcould have been longer. The resort is well appointed,has charming staff and an amazing restaurant - Bart's. I would love to return there- for a week at least next time.

This was our sixth trip to St. Barts, and the first time at Guanahani. We were a large group - nine people from three generations, including a one year old. We had an unfforgetable week, and everyone had a lot of fun. Guanahani is St. Barts at its best, a slice of the French Riviera at the tropics. If you are planning a golden trip with your family, there are few options as exciting as St Barts and the Guanahani. We had two big bungallows, one facing the sea (St.Jean), try to get this one. Great spa, beach, sports, food, kids room with caretakers - everything in a cozy environment with excellent service, and the beautifull St. Barts surrounding us. Of course, prices are not cheap, but you can't have everything in life.

We chose to stay at the Guanahani in St Barths for 7 nights for our honeymoon. One of the first things we noticed on the puddle jumper from St. Martin was all of the "St. Barths French West Indies" t-shirts a lot of people were wearing. Apparently, your first trip to St. Barths usually won't be your last. Now, I can absolutely see why. I will now be one of those "t-shirt" people myself (tank top actually...but you get my drift).

The hotel grounds are like a lush tropical rainforest. So beautiful. One reviewer mentioned a plethora of cats. There are a few cats, but I spotted 3 at most. They were no trouble and stayed out of our way. Our room was cleaned daily, nice and cool, and very comfortable. This hotel is also very quiet, and while they do allow children, they are always well behaved and barely noticeable.

The staff was full of recommendations and very helpful. They even charged my camera for me one day while I stayed on the beach. I would come back to this hotel. It is beauitful, but renting a car is a MUST to see all of the other beauitful beaches and delicious restaurants on the island. Also a great idea to stock up on waters at the big supermarket in Gustavia as you only get 2 complimentary bottles each day.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newly renovated rooms!!

This is by far the best resort on the island. The staff and grounds are lovely and the food excellent. W stayed in small bungalow suite at the end of the row and felt like we were the only ones around. It was fantastic.

The Guanahai is a lovely hotel in Grand Cul de Sac St. Barths. The breakfast buffet is devine with a wonderful selection of any and everything you might enjoy for your first meal of the day. The room is very comfortable and very chicly furnished with designer fabrics and furniture. The bath products are all clarins and the bathrooms are a nice size.

The spa is wonderful with one of the best hammams. I had a 60 minute massage which was very good. They also have a lap pool at the spa which is really nice to use before or after a treatment.
The beach was great and lunch very delicious.

I would recommend this hotel as our stay was very enjoyable.

Guana is great with children and this a the reason why we are spending mainly every year a week there. The service at the restaurant is great as well as the room maid. The spa is among the best in the world. The minus there is the wind, which can be very strong and make the beach not so pleasant. The other one is the reception. Really very much below the service level of the overall hotel.

Everything about the Guanahani is amazing. I've stayed there 3 times, and will continue to go every year. Amazing views, relaxing, kind and friendly staff, large grounds to ensure privacy. I love animal life and at sundown u can have turtles come right up to you on your suites property (just have a hibiscus flower ready to feed them). We have always rented a jeep while on the island, u really do need to go out for dinner at night because the islands restaurants are superb. Yes it's pricey, but it's St barths people. Don't believe anything negative you hear about this place, if you don't enjoy yourself there, you might as well kill yourself, you will never be happy.

Oh! One negative, Barto, the dinner restaurant is lame, skip it, there's M&P, Le Ti, and so many other places you should be spending your evenings dining at.

Room Tip: I've stayed in 3 different rooms and all had their own unique pluses. Even in the most standard...
