Hotel Guanahani and Spa Review

The largest full-service resort on the island has lovely rooms and suites (14 of which have private pools) and impeccable personalized service, not to mention one of the island's only children's programs (though it's more of a nursery). Endless water sports, lighted artificial-turf tennis courts, and a serene spa complement the lushly landscaped beach peninsula. The devoted management continues to tweak the resort toward perfection. Freshly decorated suites—with private terraces and large bathrooms stuffed with Clarins toiletries—are part of a vigorous upgrading project, pushing ever more suites into the most luxurious category (there are now eight of these spacious, comfortable, well-laid-out suites with devoted butler service and thoughtful creature comforts). Besides the flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, on-demand movies, and resortwide Wi-Fi service, room outlets are compatible with U.S. electronics, and the desk has a charger station with plugs for iPhones, BlackBerries, and phones. The fab Clarins Spa and Frédéric Fekkai hair salon offer oodles of fantastic services. Also here are two well-regarded restaurants, poolside L'Indigo and sophisticated Italian. There is even a first-rate boutique, and a beach-side fitness pavilion. Units vary in price, privacy, view, and distance from activities, so understand the choices, and make your preferences known.

    Hotel Guanahani and Spa Review

    This Hotel is Tortue

    From the time you arrive, things go down hill. You Sea View Villa is nowhere near the sea, and if you stand on a chair you may see it over the fence.

    Food is poor at breakfast and Bartolemo restaurant. Dont go there hungry

    Tea Spoon portions for dinner.....

    Am spending $1700 a day on a sunday listening to 7 hours of non stop hip hop....beach party for the islands 20 year olds.

    Nobody cares about their guests here.

    Next time eat and stay at Eden RockSt Barts.

    This place lacks any sort of class. I am an international traveller spending at least 200 nights a year away somewhere in the world so I can speak with authority.

    I am baricaded in my Villa with the music blasting everything in sight. The hotel is entertaining all the 20 year olds on the island who can afford the entrance fee and of course only one drink.

    Management havent figured out their customers are older...... because they can afford to stay here....not the 20 years olds
