We spent nine days at Bananarama with our two boys and gma to babysit while we went diving. The beach is white sand and very calm on most days since this is not on the windy side so the four year old could just run out and swim. The brick oven pizza is great and I recommend doing all inclusive...

Traveled with 2 couples, and each couple had their own cabin for the "dive and sizzle" package, which had 10 boat dives and food included. The cabin itself was nice. Nothing great, but I can't really say anything bad about it. Comfy bed, ceiling fan, A/C, a safe, and a fridge. The bathroom was decent-sized. There is a bucket filled...

The staff and the dive masters were absolutely phenomenal, we could not have asked for anyone better. A big shout out to Zoey, Mark, Marco, Daniel, and Brian for masking the dive trips amazing. We stayed in the beachfront cabanas and they were very clean and very rustic/cozy but not gross rustic. The Thirsty Turtle and the Vintage Pearl had...

Firstly, the staff and security were outstanding and are deserving of praise! Whatever your expectations are...just look forward to half of that but for the full price. Awesome. We booked one of the villas (not the King house) on the Ocean Pearl side of the resort. Expecting that the place would be a bit rustic but not to this extent....

Our extended family of 10 spent a week here in Mar, Having been to many different Dive Hotels over the years we weren't expecting 5Star food or accomodations which Bananarama isn't either of those,however it is clean comfortable and extremly casual. The people (as always) are what make this place special! Steven the driver was wonderful,we went several places all...

This was our third trip to Bananarama and the diving is always divine. The dive shop staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and safety conscious. The reef is incredible and the dive groups are small. Even during their busy Spring Break, we were able to dive every day and have a personal experience. The sea life variety is marvelous and the...

Bananarama is a great little spot that fits well in between a hotel and a cute little house feel. The porch for each house was unforgettable, however, their was too much construction going on all the time. The activity center was a flop! If you want to do things around the island don't go through them. We got on a...

We were at Bananarama for the day. We had sailed in on the NCL Star. We had been to West bay 2 other times but both times it had been cloudy and rainy. This time the sun was shining bright. We arrived at 9:30 or so. We were taken to our lounge chairs on the beach. We had prearranged transportation...

Do you want to bring back a fat Honduran cockroach in luggage? Do you want to listen to a whine of electrical saw ALL day long? Then stay here. We decided to stay here after reading the Tripadvisor reviews. Boy were we disappointed. This was our last destination in Honduras and we stayed in plenty of "rustic" places. But this...

The hotel has a rustic appeal and would be an excellent choice if it weren't for the very loud, non-stop beach party atmosphere. If you're looking for some measure of tranquility, stay almost anywhere else on West Bay Beach. (There are no "bad" parts of West Bay Beach - the entire strip is comprised of powdery, soft sand and turquoise...

Lindsay, Super happy you enjoyed your stay with us. I would recommend guests who are noise sensitive from 6pm to 10pm to avoid rooms 22 and 23. They are close to the music which is a lot of fun for most of our guests. We have nightly activities which include movie night on Mondays, Quiz night on Tuesday, Karokee on...
