This was probably our 10th trip to Guana. We keep going back as we are almost always have a great trip. The reason for 4 stars vs. is twofold. 1) dinners are really just mediocre. Not sure why. Breakfasts are very good, and lunch, with its wide variety of multiple choices daily, is just short of awesome. But dinners....ho hum, and, frankly, a bit skimpy. In prior years, the staff even brought out a plate of seconds, but not this time. 2) One of the very unique Guana experiences is dinner at tables of 8, where you get to enjoy the meal with other guests. The table mixes were changed nightly. Honestly, this actually delayed our trying Guana...not being sure we enjoyed eating with others on an annual chance to get away. It turned out that this part of the Guana experience was terrific. Every year, we meet some great folks as a result of this, and some have become good friends since our original Guana encounter. I must mention that guesrs always had the option of dining alone in one of several nice spots. This visit, we found ourselves seated alone about half the nights. When we inquired of management, they indicated most couples had requested this. However, other couples we asked who were dining alone had no idea why. I feel this may be a move by management. Not sure why, but, personally, I think it's a sad departure from what helped Guana stand apart.
All this being said, we love it there. The staff is nothing short of awesome, the accomodations are very well comfortable, and the location and ambience for anyone seeking a quiet Carribean vacation cannot be beat. We will definitely be going back!!
