Probably the best place I've ever visited. The hospitality on the island was fantastic. Everyone is incredibly friendly. It was quite a trek coming from the UK but worth every minute. The ride was finished with a jet boat over to the island which we did at night, the sky with all the stars was magical. Our villa was clean. The style and décor is low key and unpretentious. We stayed in the room by the infinity pool - wow what a view. there was so much to do on The island, it turned out to be a very active holiday. The hiking is great. The beach is a 15 minute walk away as the hotel is elevated however there are taxi buggies to escort you if you don't fancy it. The beach is very well equipped with canoes paddle boards etc. There are changing rooms on the beach and a nice bar. The snorkelling was fantastic, again all equipment provided. We went on a snorkelling excursion which was well worth it. The food was absolutely fantastic! I am a big foodie and every meal was something to look forward to. The buffet breakfast is rich and very varied. Lunch was again a buffet with salads fish meats and lovely desserts. Dinner was a 3 course meal. I would go back again for the food alone!

Very low key, like staying on your own private island, with a fabulous staff. Food was excellent, with portions and menu choices that were excellent and intelligent. Seven great beaches, 12 miles of trails, luxurious but very simple rooms, L'Occitane bathroom amenities, great bar. Don't go if you want a scene, other people much around, or throbbing music. Go if you like candle lit dinners in the trade winds overlooking tranquil seas and yachts at anchor. There is an excellent spa, and Lissa aka "Hands of Steel" is a great spa therapist (highly recommended, and we are picky). Zero complaints. Quiet bliss.

Room Tip: We stayed in North Beach Villa, and Harbour Villa. Both excellent, and very different.

Honestly, our time at Guana was simply perfection! The entire trip was relaxing and peaceful, but also full of fun! There was no end to the amount of activities for us to do or simply not to do. When asked about my favorite part of my visit, my answer was: to watch the happiness and excitement of my grandchildren the entire visit!

Wanted to provide a review of Guana Island from a beach vacation perspective. For us, a couple in our 40s, we love a great lazy beach vacation and were looking for an escape from frenetic day to day work lives. As other reviewers have said, there is a ton to do - hiking, orchard tours, day boat charters, but also a fabulous beach where one can do nothing at all.

We have stayed at some of the best resorts in the Caribbean, and this definitely is one of the best and most unique beach vacations.

Highlights:
Beach is awesome. A long expanse of pristine beach with great beach chairs. Big cushions, a giant tree providing all the shade you want, or none at all - totally your decision. One half of it is open to the public - which means occasionally a chartered boat will visit but overall absolutely pristine and quiet.

The Beach Club is a small beach structure/bar with every non-motorized motor toy you could want - floats, glass bottom kayaks, snorkel equipment, paddle boards, etc. Lunch can be served at the beach if you want and you sit in a gorgeous setting and look out looking at the ocean. We would highly recommend getting every lunch down at the beach club.

Food is excellent for the Caribbean, especially lunch. Be sure to try the Guana Island Sauce if you like spicy.

You truly feel like you are at a wealthy friends private beach house. You can always grab a snack or a drink from the honor bar for your own drinks. Very casual in a luxurious upscale way.

Rooms are large, very clean and rustic simple. We stayed in Barbados, which had a fabulous view and beautiful foliage.

People - Both the staff and the guests are fabulous. I think the fact that the staff are so kind and helpful plays a role in how kind and thoughtful everyone is. For example, Andrea, the Assistant Manager was incredible and went above and beyond again and again. In addition, Brenda and the team of Managers were amazing - everything went incredibly smoothly from start to finish.

Only two negatives:
- Mosquitoes were pretty bad, and guessing it because of the focus on environment and insecticides,, but we brought our Deet repellents and then had no issues.
- It is a smaller resort, and therefore if a few guests are loud or unthoughtful it impacts everyone. For a few days there was a family with an infant and it impacted the noise level. Online, Guana says there is a kids friendly space on the beach but that wasn't utilized with this group and each day they sat in the middle of everyone and ruined the peace and quiet in the morning. However, it was limited and the resort does what it can to minimize it.

With that said, the resort is truly a way to get away from it all. For an exclusive beach vacation we would absolutely recommend it for something different and to get away from it all.

Camelot!
"I know it sounds a bit bizarre,
But in Guana that's how conditions are.

The rain may never fall "til after sundown.
By eight the morning fog must disappear.
In short, there's simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than
here on Guana Island.

But in Guana
Those are the legal laws

By nine pm the moonlight
must appear.

There is simply not
A more congenial spot
For all that is great than
Here in Guana Island."
