Bananarama is located on probably the best beach of Roatan, along with a whole host of other resorts and villas. Because of the beach, Bananarama/West Bay is a hot-bed for the cruiser ship/day hoppers...you can spot a cruise shipper a mile away (chances are...they will be a lot closer than that). Overall, the accommodations are not unlike anything you will...

We do aim to deliver excellent customer service to all of our guests. Christmas and New Year's week are very difficult for us and the island as a whole in regards to being able to serve everyone as they are our busiest two weeks of the year. During this time we do our very best to try and insure each...

My 18 year-old twin sons and I spent the week before Christmas at Banarama Beach and Dive Resort. The lodging is great, but what really makes the stay at Banarama fantastic is the help. The help is very friendly, courteous and helpful. They make you feel important, like you own the place or something. One of the waiters at the...

Like a lot of people also say, this place is friendly and has that rustic island feel with the lodging and overall atmosphere. It is on the nicest stretch of beach on the island, and we strolled up and down discovering little places every night, but coming back to the Thirsty Turtle. The employees were great. Shout out to Sandra,...

All of the service team was excellent and very kind toward us. We felt like being home! The food served in the thirsty turtle was delicious and also the drinks and cocktals! We remember the girls at the reception: Sara, Daneri, Denisse and Victoria they were always willing to help and solved everything faster; besides, they made us feel comfortable....

This hotel was awesome. It gives you a more rustic feel than other hotels on the island and still has most of the luxuries of the others. The employees were absolutely unmatched. I usually like to do a lot of exploring, but ended up spending almost every night at the Thirsty Turtle. Zebby, Derry, Eddison, Angela & Sandra at the...

This coming June will be my fourth time staying at Bananarama. Honestly, I think that says enough. The staff is friendly, the food is a tasty and a great deal, and if you are diving, you can not beat the dive shop. I've been diving with other outfitters on the island, but as soon as I dove with Banarama the...

This was my first experience at a Dive Resort after getting my dive certification, and was very satisfied with the beautiful Villas at Vintage Pearl (with help in scheduling from Jane, Sara, and others); and ate every meal at the Thirsty Turtle and Pizzarama (without being 'All Inclusive') because the food was so good, and enjoyed the fun and friendly...

Just got back from a cruise that stopped in Roatan, Honduras.
