Words cannot describe the experience of visiting Guana Island. It has taken me nearly a month to write this review simply because it is so difficult to write a succinct review about this magical place.
The entire experience - which was a celebration of a 40th birthday - was perfect. Beyond perfection, really. The landscape, the environs, the rooms, the STAFF (!!!) -- fantastic. From the moment you arrive via boat from Tortola until the sad moment when you need to leave -- you will have the best time ever. This is the perfect place for the type of traveler that seeks natural beauty, attentive but not over-the-top service, seclusion, quiet, lazy days and a truly unique experience.
The rooms all afford beautiful views of the gorgeous island. This place is indeed the best kept secret in the Caribbean and as a result, I reluctantly write this glowing review. I don't want too many people to find out! I researched over 5 months on the web and in countless guidebooks..... Caneel Bay, Little Dix, Peter Island, Bitter End all beckoned. Guana won out and I sure glad it did.
The cherry on the top of this perfect experience was April, the guest relations manager. She was fantastic and was so thoughtful and made us feel so welcome. Our week on the island would not have been so special if it wasn't for April. The owners of the island are lucky to have her on staff.
Additionally, Dr Liao (the resident ornithologist and gardener) as well as the new general manager Jason were great as well. The guests - some of whom we hope to be friends with for life - are also a real plus. A unique and eclectic bunch from around the globe.
Guana is a truly special place. We cannot wait to return.
