My wife and I just got back from an 8 night stay at the Gansevoort. I will make this short and sweet outline style:
Room: Stunning modern architecture and brand new. We stayed in a Luxury beachfront studio. The view and terrace were amazing. We were on the 4th floor...there are only 5 floors and the top is the penthouse. Make sure you get a beachfront and go for the higher floors. They have a table and chairs on the balcony and one lounge chair. My only complaint would be the kitchen is a tiny nook with a microwave and refrigerator (big enough to hold plenty for two for the week), and sink. Also, the bed could use a little more support. You should request either the 3rd or 4th floor.
Pool: Beautiful but smaller than we expected...pictures make it look bigger. The hotel is small enough and not too crowded so this is not an issue. The beach is where you will spend your time.
Beach: Unbelievable!! Very large with plenty of white sand and perfect to get in the ocean. Also, you can walk for miles in each direction. This area is nice and quiet, not many kids. We walked down the beach about 30 minutes to the more crowded areas with the restaurants.
Restaurants: Anacuana in Grace Bay with the Infiniti Bar, Coco Bistro, Lemon Cafe...all excellent but pricey...everything is on the island. Somewhere Bar is a great spot for lunch or dinner and inexpensive for happy hour...ask for one of JJ's blueberry mojitos! And beers are like $2.50! Also, the Somewhere Bar is a short little walk from the hotel on the beach. Da Conch Shack for lunch. The hotel has only one restaurant, the Bagatelle. The menu is very small and we only had appetizers a couple of times. This is also where you will have the continental breakfast every morning, which is mediocre with breads, muffins, very little fruit, and cereal. The coffee is the best part.
If you need to see a sunset go to Las Brisas. Also, the locals love Magnolia in Turtle Cove.
**Make sure to double check on your reservations, as the front desk is not good about calling your room to confirm. We had to call them every time.
Groceries: The IGA is new and easy to get to from the hotel...a quick 5 minute cab ride. They also have plenty of beer and wine selection.
Fitness: The fitness center is very small but they have two classes per day that are a great workout. One at 9:00am and one at 6pm. I think weekends are just one class though. The morning classes are packed.
Staff: Tony, Omar, Chermaine at the front desk are excellent. On the beach Leo and Jevon will take great care in setting up your chairs and drinks throughout the day. The service is excellent...just remember you are on an island and not LA or NY, so they are not in a hurry and neither should you be on vacation!!
We loved the hotel and the island and will be back for vacation and possibly to purchase a condo!!
