Was there on 9/29/2016 for a day at the beach. We got second row seats on the beach, first row gets bombarded by vendors walking the beach, and enjoyed a perfect day on West Bay Beach. Snorkeled out by the rock and saw some beautiful marine life at the reef there. The food and drinks were good at Bananarama/Thirsty Turtle... More

Really loved that they have a different event every night, whether it be a live band (and very talented), to movie night, to crab races, lol. Rooms were rustic but very comfortable. Also, the best part is the staff. 24 hour security in the proximity, and it seems the best tour guides work the desk out on the beach. Pinky,... More

Love this place. Took a taxi from Pier around $20 per person-hired taxi for the day. Had a mango margarita and fish tacos. Did snorkeling off Bananarama boat-ask for Pinky. Water was clear and cool. Several other couples from boat were present

I got the 35usd cruise package with snorkelling gears. They pick us up from the port and it took 20 mins to get here. The beach was amazing. There is limited space under this resort area but the beach scratch for few miles. We travel with small kids so they just play in the resort area. You can walk 5... More

We just got home last night from an amazing week! We stayed in villa 25 right smack on the beach. There is 2 single beds downstairs and a queen upstairs. The bathroom, downstairs, has a large mosaic shower that lets you feel your showering outside. A/C worked great! Full kitchen, if you feel like cooking. We had a lot of... More

My hubby and I stayed at this resort for a couple of days and I must say that is was a relaxing and beautiful place. It is located on one of the best beaches that Roatan has to offer on West Bay.

This beach access resort offers changing rooms, wifi, showers, and beach access. The chairs are on the beach, meaning that you will be accosted by vendors. The beach is public property on the island. So, be prepared to say No, thank you the entire time you are on the sand. In the water, they leave you alone. On the resort... More

This is one of the most "perfect" beach sites I've ever visited. The accommodations are good, the staff is friendly. The food served isn't this resort's best attribute, but it's adequate. One bit of advice: bring lots of insect repellent.

Good people, good location, GREAT water! Marco, Lyndell and both of their staffs (too many names to remember!) were absolutely wonderful. Also met some wonderful diving buddies that I hope stay friends for a long, long time.
