Recent Great Guana Cay reviews

  • Outstanding Position on Guana Cay

    "We had a very relaxing stay at Dolphin Lookout. The property is exactly as described in the many reviews we read before booking - it has an outstanding location at the Southern tip of Guana Cay, looking over to Scotland Cay, with fabulous views from the deck. The property itself is small, more like a studio apartment, but as spacious as a nice hotel suite. And there is plenty of space on the deck to just sit/lie down and chill. We tended to eat out at lunch time and relax at Dolphin Lookout in the evenings, and take a night cap sitting under a palm tree and marvel at the night sky (tip: use starwalker app or similar on ipad to see what all those constellations are). Our strategy of staying home paid off on new year's eve, when the beach on Scotland Cay hosted an elaborate 20-minute firework display at 9pm. They must be a family friendly lot on that private island to have the fireworks so early, and we were certainly grateful for what felt like a show put on just for us at Dolphin Lookout! We enjoyed leaving the blinds open and waking up to glorious dawn skies. Our pilates teacher would have been proud of us as every day we strolled down to the boat dock and did our "boat dock" pilates session - always on the look out for Bob the Barracuda, who often turned up as we arrived. The restaurants are not outstanding, nor should they be when you consider the constraints of island life, but we were not disappointed. We particularly enjoyed eating at Orchid Bay. I would say they had the best and friendliest service and the verandah is lovely to sit on and watch all the boating activity as you dine. The wifi worked very well, and we put it to good use, not for browsing, but for listening to Spotify using the aux cable connected to the mini hi-fi system. We also had a few movie nights on Netflix and again used the aux cable, to deliver a nice surround-sound experience. It's certainly a good idea to buy groceries at Marsh Harbor as the local store is very limited but does have all the basics. But the best place to buy dinner is straight from the dock near the liquor store. We didn't have enough cash one day and the the local ATM was closed for business (i.e. Grabbers) - but we were able to buy some nice large cray fish tails for $6 and three bottles of local beer! Our favourite activity was just to relax and enjoy the stunning Cay Sera beach where we hardly saw another soul. A fabulous escape."

  • Amazing Abaco Baby

    "Abaco Baby was beyond my expectations! So much fun, so much to see & do on Great Guana & surrounding Cays. Golf cart & boat are a must! The owner's attention to detail is amazing. If you need it, it is there. The most beautifully themed decorated VRBO home I have ever stayed in. We snorkeled right off the houses private dock & the beach looks like a postcard! I will definitely come back. Some friends visited one day from Hopetown & could not get over how great & perfect the home was!! I love you Abaco Baby"

  • Paradise

    "My husband and I stayed at Gumbo Limbo for an all too short week in April. The cottage, even more lovely than pictured, is beautifully built and maintained. All the comforts of home are provided including a very well equipped kitchen. We had a fabulous week, cooked in most nights and snorkeled from the nearby beaches each day. The snorkeling was lovely with beautiful fan coral, many fish and an occasional turtle seen. The caretaker Sally Ann was wonderful and helped us with many aspects of our stay. The cottage feels very secluded and we saw few people on the beach. Everyone was very friendly and we loved meeting the local neighbors. Golf cart travel to and from town was pretty fun and easy. We would love to return one day to this beautiful spot. It was truly one of our favorite vacation homes and locations of all our past travels."

  • Great location on Guana Cay.

    "Spent Christmas vacation with the kids here. Had a great time. We have been to previous locals, but this was the family favorite to date. Guana Cay requires some strategic planning, but is worth the trouble. Renting a boat for a few days was key. Expect NYC prices in restaurants and bars. Watch Hill is located perfectly on the island. I would highly recommend it."
