Don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. This is just a storefront selling Guavaberry stuff. Don't get me wrong, Guavaberry is great and I love Guavaberry Coladas which they were selling for $7, but I was expecting more than a storefront.

The rum and liquor flavors are really good. They also have a couple of pre-mixed cocktail punches that you can buy by the glass. We loved the drinks; the staff did not look very happy to be there, but they served us quickly and efficiently.

I hate to admit it but the taste of guavaberry is not everyone's favorite - no problem! There are many different flavors to try and decide which one is your favorite. After three separate visits to tastings we settled on the lime flavored rum and...More

I always try to find the spots that locals visit when I travel and this was just that kind of find. The rum is made on the island and infused with different flavors. This isn't your huge-corporate-conglomerate-made rum; it is the rum that was being...More

I enjoyed our visit, and it's nice (and rare) to find a truly local product in such a touristy place as St Marten. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about this family-run business. I appreciate that they produce the rum here, and infuse it with...More

Authentic, friendly and great selection of Caribbean rums. I come here twice a year and always take home a few bottles of Guavaberry and their small gift size rums to give as gifts. The people here are always friendly and answer all my questions, and...More

Visited The Guavaberry Company while on holiday. I must say it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was a true Caribbean experience! The rums were extremely tasty and the mixed colada drinks outstanding! Made a point of going back at least twice during our stay.

Maybe this liqueur was good, once, but it certainly isn't anymore. It tasted like a base of super-cheap rum, mixed with artificial flavorings. I don't know if it actually *used* artificial flavorings, or if it was just from the cheap rum, but that's certainly what...More

Hi Chiotilid, In US distances, I would say around one mile at most. In European distances, about 1600 meters. Enjoy the island. Bob Stratford, CT

It's only about a 5 to 10 minute walk tops. You'll be at the end of the boardwalk near the marina, go up to front street turn left and you'll pass the passarhang guest house, Yoda Guy then guavaberry on the opposite side
