Trip Advisor Report for Guanaja Caribbean Cottages Resort

RECEIVED 5 OF 5 STARS

Left on 04/01/2014 for a stay in February 2014

This place is a rare gem. Off the mainland of Honduras and can see Roatan from the dock. Crystal clear water. If you are into snorkeling or diving this is a dream. Unbelievable! We went by boat to 3 different locations and each one was unique. The reef is within 100 yards of the beach. We snorkeled Red rock, Michaels Rock and other side of the cut. Saw 5' Leopard ray cruise on by in 5' of water. We also walked down the beach to the Green Flash bar/grill which is built over the water. The people here are so friendly and make you feel right at home. We also hiked up the waterfall. We saw lots of wildlife, large lizards, hummingbirds, parrots, deer, geese, cattle and horses. We were there for only 5 days which was not long enough. The cottages are so comfortable and quaint and have everything you need to fix you own meals. We left the cooking to Kay and were not disappointed! Food is so good! This is an out of the way destination but well worth it. The sunsets are amazing. Thank you Kay to a memorable vacation, loved it.

Cottage direct oceanfront! I was born in North Carolina. Raised in Maryland, where my father relocated for work. At 18 I started heading south & didn't stop until I reached Guanaja, a pristine Caribbean island in the Bay Islands. When I was a child and watched movies on tropical islands or Gilligan's Island, I knew I was meant to be on a tropical island. My son & I have traveled all over the Caribbean & the South Pacific, but Guanaja was the enchanting forgotten island that drew us, as Bali Hai did the sailors in South Pacific! I had this new property built. I wanted a place like the 'old' Caribbean, before commercialization and modern architecture. I now have exactly that, an unspoiled piece of paradise, where all I see from my property is the beauty of the Caribbean & the reef in the near distance. At night all I hear are the gentle Caribbean waves against the reef & the night creatures singing in their own way.

Janice Bonds (Kay) purchased this cottage in 2012

My son & I fell in love with the freedom of the island, the people & the feeling that time just stopped here; no condos, no big hotels to block the ocean view, perfect climate, the tap water is even spring water & I could go on..... I bought property & built on this side of the island, because of the beautiful isolated beach, the serenity of not being able to see anything, but the mountains & the Caribbean. A giant plus for this property; the rentals are the only ones on the island within walking distance of town and beautiful waterfalls. At the other properties the guests must use a boat to get to stores or cafes.

This is the only area of the island where you are close enough to walk to town and the waterfalls. At other rentals you must take a boat to town & to the waterfalls. The only waterfalls on the island are located close to the cottages. Here you have the privacy of your own brand new Caribbean Cottage, but you also have the choice of an all-inclusive vacation with the amenities of a resort- restaurant, kayaking & you don't have to worry about finding tours on your own. If you choose the all-inclusive package, meals are included. We serve a variety of seafood - lobster, shrimp, Caribbean King Crab, cracked conch, conch fritters, crab imperial etc. We also serve fish from local fishermen- snapper, grouper and mahi mahi, etc. We serve 4 course dinners. Examples of home made soups: crab bisque, french onion, chicken noodle, clam chowder, chicken tortilla, etc. We usually also have lamb and filet mignon on the menu. A different desert is served each night including key lime pie, creme brulee, cream puffs with Bavarian cream, flan and a variety of other deserts. Enjoy a BBQ from our hand made clay BBQ or enjoy a bonfire on the beach. We have an abundance of wild life in the ocean & on the property. You would not find as much wild life on a commercialized island. The crime rate is the lowest of any Caribbean island that I know of. You can safely sleep on the screened in porch on a custom made sleeping porch swing! Because of the seclusion of the island, fly fishing, deep sea fishing, snorkeling & diving are amazing. Would you like an all-inclusive romantic honeymoon package you will never forget? It is my goal to see that you have the vacation, scuba diving, fly fishing experience, deep sea fishing or adventure of a lifetime. Many adventures await you or chill and forget the world! Ask about second cottage.

Great days in Guanaja

  • 5 out of 5
Two 60 + couples spent a splendid 6 days at the cottages. The island is so very beautiful. The fishing was fun and challenging. We landed a bonefish and saw several permit, but couldn't persuade them. One was huge. Mangrove Bight is just a nice walk away. No use for a rental car. Boats and walking get you where you want to be.

The cottages are very clean and delightful...especially the swing-bed on the porch. The best part was the delicious meals prepared by Vorna. She is a spectacular cook and a delightful person.

Kay works very hard to make your stay be memorable. She succeeded for us. Every day...from the pickup at the airport to the plane ride out..was a time that we will treasure for a long, long time.

We combined our trip to Guanaja with a 2 week stay on Roatan. The experiences are both wonderful and quite different.

Snorkelers, fishermen, or fun seekers will all find what they are looking for. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

Owner's Response: This review was submitted on Trip Advisor and was given 5 stars. It was a pleasure having all of you here. I loved hearing your stories & missed all of you when you left. It was such a compliment when you would ask for seconds on the food! There's no greater compliment for a chef. It was amazing that you caught the bone fish, congratulations. This is one of the top islands in the world for fly fishing. I hope all of you will come back soon! Carl, I must say, you're a character! Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.

CARIBEAN PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
I truly recommend Caribbean Cottages in Guanaja Island. I spent two weeks there and it was one of the best vacations I have ever had. The weather is perfect not too hot not too cold; and there are no mosquitoes. Even though the cottages have all the comfort of a city hotel, they have the sense of romantic touch. There are so many activities to do that it’s impossible to get bored and the best thing is that it’s not expensive. You just enjoy the nature everywhere you go. Some of the activities include: scuba dive, snorkel, fish, and kayak. If you prefer, you can go hiking to see the most beautiful water falls or you can go walking to the closest town Mangrove Bight where the people are also so friendly. The food is fresh and delicious; about everyday you get seafood because they just catch it right there. They teach you and take you snorkel whenever you want to. The people there make you feel like you are with your family. The owner of the cottages is a very kind, reliable and honest person; she truly cares for you. Being at the Caribbean Cottages is like you are in a paradise. For anyone that is looking for peace and quiet and wants to forget the problems, this is the perfect place to be. All the nature and the people make you fell like you are in a paradise.
I look forward to going back so I can escape from all my stress and forget all my problems as I did when I was there. Thank you to all of you that made me fell so special. May God bless all of you always.

Love Guanaja, Great place for so many water sports and hiking and the food is awesome

  • 5 out of 5
Kay is a great hostess as well as meeting all needs a traveler would want. Daniel is an awesome cook with beautiful tasty meals. You can go to the resort for relaxation or stay as busy as you want, hiking the waterfall, snorkeling, fishing, diving,or just reading a good book. I will go back many time and send my friends too.

Paradise Found

  • 5 out of 5
Have you ever wanted to stay someplace where you can totally relax and hide away from the hustle and bustle of life? Well, we found that place and it is called Guanaja Caribbean Cottages. While we felt as if we were on our own private island, the cottage provided us with all the modern conveniences, even hot water for showers!!! Most of the other resorts on the island do not have hot water or A/C units for their rentals but we had those conveniences here. The cottage was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The complete kitchen allowed us to keep some snacks on hand for those times you just want to snack. We were able to snorkel right from the beach and it the most beautiful unspoiled reef we have ever been to. (and we travel yearly to the caribbean) We had the option to snorkel and hike to waterfalls from the property or walk to a small quaint town. The meals provided with our package were outstanding and the chef Daniel also made some wonderful fruit smoothies. Whether we chose to sit on the beach and relax or get active, we found our new favorite destination provided us with the right combination. Trust us, you won't be disappointed and will be making plans to return soon.

I love this resort! The accomodations are fabulous. Everything you need, and so quaint and comfortable. The views are amazing, the water is crystal clear, the snorkeling outstanding! You feel as though you are on a deserted island. If you really want to get away from it all and relax this is the place to be. Or if you prefer to scuba dive, snorkel, fish, kayak, hike to Mangrove Bight or hike up a waterfall this is also the place to be. The people are so friendly and helpful. And the food is delicious. I can't wait to go back and see everyone again and do some more exploring.
