On our last full day of a great Easter vacation, we decided to stop by the resort. We hadn't done it before because it's certainly not in the "beaten path" of the island. We're glad we did! The place is beautiful, very well maintained, with great service and very friendly staff. We could tell we were in for a treat...

This Resort is amazing, I mean I don't know where to begin. From the moment my boyfriend and I landed in Roata'n we were greeted and picked up by the resorts shuttle service which was nice.

Thank you for staying with us on your recent visit to Roatan! We live on an island paradise and we have tried to honor our special location by building a very different resort property. A relaxing and beautiful exterior deserves a beautiful, restful interior space. It’s true we have very little light pollution on Roatan, and many guests are amazed...

Well from the beginning. I called down before the journey and Brian (Front Desk) took care of all the details prior to arrival. Upon check in, Ingrid, was a gem and zoomed us thru the process so that we could begin to enjoy our quick vacation. We were assigned a two bedroom villa and when I tell you you WILL...

Our villa exceeded our expectations. It was HUGE! Very nice. 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, full kitchen, private infinity pool. This resort was excellent! It's about a 45 min drive to west bay beach and west end, I definitely recommend renting a car.

We stayed one week at Pristine Bay. The location is quite isolated but the property is very pretty. We had breakfast included in our stay. Our unit is up on the hill, a bedroom with full kitchen and a private pool. We had a golf cart for the week. It is difficult to walk to the clubhouse and the beach....

Certainly the best place on the entire island and while a top of the line and luxury spot; the sis the best value for money spent anywhere on Roatan.

We came here for our vacation. Rarely is the 2nd time as wonderful as the first. This resort proves me wrong. Some of the staff recognized us from 2014. Very nice touch.
