Cons

  • The beach is relatively small so most guests choose to drive to nearby beaches instead

Bottom Line

Hotel Guanahani is a beautiful resort on the northeast side of St. Barts that attracts well-heeled guests and celebrities (Bethenny Frankel came here for her honeymoon). The hotel offers 75 rooms and separate cottages, all of which feature terraces, colorful, beachy decor, and modern amenities such as large flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi. The extensive amenities include a pool, two kids' clubs, tennis courts, several delicious dining options, and a top-notch spa, ensuring that there's plenty to keep both couples and families happy -- though the hotel does tend to attract more couples. The beach has numerous activities, but is relatively small, so many guests take day trips to the nearby beaches.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the northeast side of the island

Nicknamed St. Barts, St. Barthelemy in the French West Indies has been a playground to the rich and the famous for several decades. Though the island's first foray into tourism was in the 1960s, the real tourism boom was in the 1980s, and nowadays the well-heeled venture out to St. Barts for its gourmet restaurants, high-end designer shops, secluded beaches, and exclusive location. Celebs such as Jimmy Buffet, David Letterman, and Steve Martin own property on the island and are frequent visitors.

The beachfront Hotel Guanahani is located in the Grand Cul-de-Sac part of the island on the northeast side. Grand Cul-de-Sac has that upscale, resort-like vibe. The beach is lined by high-end bistros with fabulous views and water sports have become a popular pastime. Though some restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel, many prefer to rent a car or rely on taxis, as some beaches and the town of Gustavia are a drive away. The airport is about a 20-minute drive from the hotel.
