We are about to return to Le Hotel Guanahani for our fifth consecutive year. This review is based on our many visits. Having stayed at other hotels in St. Barts, here is what we love about this hotel:
The staff is happy, helpful and fun. From the moment they pick you up at the airport and offer you a cold bottle of water, their smiles, warmth and enthusiasm creates a very welcome feel.
The location is perfect. It is the only hotel with its own beach (Eden Rock has a beach, but it feels public and it right near the airport).
The villas are well maintained, comfortable and surrounded by well-tended gardens that create privacy.
Breakfast is served on your terrace by two people, making set-up and delivery quick. It also has the freshest most finely cut fruit salad you’ll ever find.
The tennis courts are lit and we always enjoy a game after sunset. They also keep good equipment and will often give you a new canister of tennis balls, not old used ones.
Small details are observed by all staff. For example, housekeeping leaves fresh cut hibiscus flowers in your room. These are not only beautiful, but if you happen to find a turtle in your garden, the hibiscus flower is their favorite food.
The beach stretches long enough away from the island hills that you can enjoy direct sunlight almost up to sunset.
The toiletries are Clarins, and they are generous and never let them run out. In addition, you will find two pair of sandals, a citronella candle and bug spray, though the ocean breeze usually keeps the away flying insects.
Barto is much improved over the past few years and now one of the best dinner places on the island.
The spa is beautiful, peaceful and has a private pool.
This is the place to stay.
