The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The room was very spacious and very clean. The location is right on the Ocean with nice breeze most days. The grounds were very nicely trimmed and the pool was excellent. A car is highly recommended even though Philipsburg is very close. The use of the beach is limited because of the... More

Right by the water. Close to the cruise terminal, Boardwalk and Front street. Outdoor pool and beach close by for your morning walk. Nice clean sandy beach. Quiet, except for the roar of the waves which isn't bad, and a peaceful location.

This is our 26th visit to Guana Beach Villas. The villas overlook the Atlantic Ocean and the highlight of my day is waking to the sound of the waves on the rocks and the beautiful sunrises and then a 100 yard walk to the beach, followed by a swim in the ocean or pool. The hexagon accommodations are surprising large,... More

Stayed at the Geo Group Guana Bay Beach Villas through RCI. First it should be noted that if you follow the directions to get to the resort (which you should) , follow the signs for Guana Bay Villas and NOT Guana Bay Beach Villas posted near the end of Guana Bay Rd. If you don't pass the David Brenner Estate,... More

The accommodation is good for a few weeks and for exploring the island, a rental car is a must. there isn't much to do in the vicinity but if you have a rental car you could visit Philipsburg or Simpson Bay.

I have owed a villa at Guana Bay Beach Villas for 11 years. It was my first Caribbean property and still my favorite. Every time I return and sit on my oceanfront deck, I wonder why it has taken me so long to return; the views towards St. Barth are impossible to describe in words. The collection of 18 villas...

My mom picked this place through her time shear with RCI. First, this place is not near to any facilities at all, very remote. The beach on this side of the island is very rough, there are no life guards and you swim at your own risk. When we check in at the front desk, if you call it that.... More
