White Bay Beach, our main half-mile beach, is an easy walk or a quick ride to and from the hilltop in our Beach Surrey. Most guests begin by taking the Surrey, but after a few of our excellent meals they seem to prefer walking.

Guana has always meant to provide a disconnect from regular life ? to be a haven where people come to escape work, phones, newspapers and television. But although we still do not want television or phones in guest rooms, we finally had to join the 21st century somewhat by installing Internet service. Those who bring their own laptops can connect in their rooms or on their terraces using their own WiFi card or one we can provide. Those who don?t can use the Guest Office computer which is there for the convenience of our guests.

Tipping is not expected; the resort fee is meant to cover everything.

Our talented West Indian chefs provide excellent American, Continental and Caribbean cuisine. All meals are served on open or covered dining terraces with spectacular views of other islands. Breakfast is both buffet and table service. Lunch is a 1 pm buffet with an array of tantalizing dishes. Beach lunches and Castaway Picnics can be requested. Children’s dining is at 6 p.m.. Based on the Managers’ discretion, children may dine during the evening seating.” Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres are from 6:30 to 7:30. At dinner, guests choose to dine by candlelight at private tables for two or at ?social" tables with other guests. Beach Barbecues with Caribbean music are a weekly event, especially memorable when there?s a full moon and crab races. Each afternoon, coffee, tea, home-baked cookies, fruit, crudités and other refreshments are offered at the Club and at the Beach Bar.

Guests who wear a bathing suit to breakfast or lunch are requested to wear a cover-up as well. In the evenings, dress is smart casual (slacks, sport shirts, dresses, skirts or pants).

Phones and TV
Guana Island has intentionally (and by guest choice) never put telephones or TVs in the rooms. Our guests use the phone in our Guest Office, their own cell phone or one we can supply. Cell phones may not be used within the sight or earshot of other guests.

Laundry and other needs
We offer limited wash and fold laundry service at no charge, but for larger quantities there is a charge. Ask for anything you would like and don?t see, such as more hangers, extra pillows, down pillows, additional amenities, etc. And please feel free to make suggestions about anything.

Power and water
Electricity is standard U.S. 110 volt, 60 cycle AC from our own generators. Our water supply is an excellent mix of rainwater and desalinated seawater.
