We headed off to Gayana to celebrate my junior 3rd Birthday. We were greeted with a welcome drink and wonderful hospitality of the staff Our Villa was fantastic, spacious and equipped with all essentials. The resort is very environment conscious, they have gone great lengths to preserve and maintain the natural environment. But you do need to be careful of the monkeys loitering around. Dont forget to lock your villa doors and I was told, these monkeys can open the villa doors. Smart huh Sadly it rained heavily and we really couldnt go out until late evening. We were suprised with a Birthday Cake for my son during dinner. Terry was fantastic. Breakfast was pretty decent, guess due to the low occupancy in the resort, there was ni buffet but that's all right. The staff are actually the highlight of this resort and they make a very big difference during you stay here. We will definitely be back again for a longer stay on our next trip.

Helpful and friendly staff in the resort. Beautiful scene but with some garbage on the sea. But I still can stay in the villa listening to the sea breeze, it was so relaxing. We were enjoyed in snorkeling and kayaking in the resort. It's free for non motor activities! The only disappointment is there's little 'Jerry' visit us in the room. Room need maintenance and pest control perhaps.

It is a very beautiful resort. The hardware is wonderful. The dinner also surprised me. However, the sea is polluted, and a little garbages floated on the water. Besides, the cocktails in the bar cut corners, either. This is the lightest liquor I've ever drunk.

We had such a perfect stay at Gayana Marine Resort! All the staff where super friendly and helpful, always smiling and willing to help. We did the kayaking tour in the mangrove, a stunning snorkling tour where we could snorkle in four different locations looking att turtles, Shark, stingray and al lot of outer species, visited the other resort where they have a zip-line in the rainforest which where really fun and just relaxed! The fact that this Place also holds a marine research center where they work for a cleaner ocean and the giant clams future made it even better!

The staff is perfect, the rooms are beautiful and the food at the chinese restaurant is excellent. The swimming pool is also beautiful but needs to be maintained: there were many algae and the tiles are not in excellent shape. The real disapointments were the beach (almost non existant and with many plastic bottles), and the quality of the water for snorkeling: it is murky, and even at low tide and with no swell, the visibility remains low, around 2 to 3 meters at most. It is a pity as there are many fishes.
