The Perfect Experience!

Posted Apr 9, 2017
Pros: See above - pretty much everything - although the staff made all the difference.
Cons: There is only one restaurant open for dinner & although the menu changes daily, it was challenging to eat a light dinner there. More salads please!
Location: Location is lovely on a protected lagoon and walking distance to a couple of other hotels & beach restaurants. Wind surfing, kayaking, tennis, snorkel
This was our first stay at the Guanahani, after having previously stayed at another perfectly lovely hotel in St Barth's, and we could not have been happier. The staff were exceptionally helpful, pleasant, quick and accommodating - from locating and delivering our lost luggage, to renting a car, making (and changing) dinner reservations, supplying us with water and a cooler every time we left the property, etc. Special shout-outs to Simon at the reception, Julie in the main restaurant, and Tibo, one of their drivers. The housekeeping staff also were unusually unobtrusive, yet always had the room in tip-top condition, with fresh towels, waters, coffee, etc. The property itself is beautiful and although large, felt very private. We enjoyed sitting on our terrace at the start or end of the day, looking out to a little private garden, to watch the visiting hummingbirds, turtles, iguanas, salamanders. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful, the pool is sizable, and the beach lovely - although the water is not deep (perfect for children and water sports!) There were not too many kids there when we visited, and I could see it becoming less serene during school holidays. There is a full spa as well as tennis courts and a smallish workout facility. Lunch at the restaurant on the beach was great as well.

Le Guanaani in St. Barts

Posted Jan 30, 2016 on Hotels
A fantastic full-service hotel and beautiful beach with terrific service. It has a first class spa and two restaurants, one that serves breakfast & lunch by the pool and beach & one that serves dinner. Both are very good. There is also an activity room for kids and hotel staff who are available to supervise and entertain them.

Nice hotel but remote

Pros: Peaceful and quiet enviroment.
Cons: The view from our hotel room was over grown.

Great experience in St Barth

Posted Apr 18, 2015
Overall excellent experience in St Barth and the hotel in particular. The staff was very professional, extremely helpful and went to of their way to make things easy for us. The facility is great, very well maintained, very clean, spacious rooms, and just the right distance from Gustavia (the downtown location there) and the amenities are excellent. The hotel took care of our transportation to/from the airport at no extra charge and they even took care of handling a minor car accident that happened with us, all with a smile!

Great family place with beach and water sports

Posted Dec 10, 2014
Pros: The beach bar and water sports included. Nice restaurant on premises. Managers cocktail reception.
Cons: Benjamin at the concierge was AWESOME.
