My boyfriend and I have agreed that this resort was the highlight of our vacation in Central America. We didn't want a "ritzy" resort, just a charming place with a great beach...we got that and more! Thery fit us into a private cabana on short notice for a very affordable price, and this beach is amazing! You can find whatever...

The resort has a rustic feel, nice decorated cabanas, restaurant...

Very relaxing beach front resort with a rustic feel. The service was great from the Bar Staff, (especially Steven), wait staff, cleaning staff, and Sara and Denise in the office. Everyone was very friendly. Great place for snorkeling, diving, or just relaxing on the beach (and don't forget to paddle board with Anita). Would definitely go back there for another...

I don't tend to like big resorts, so I was pleasantly surprised by how small Bananarama is. We stayed in #26, which is a small 2 bedroom villa with a kitchen and a porch. The resort is located amid several other resorts along a pretty beach, so you can walk up and down and eat at other hotels just off...

We had a package deal: 8 nights, three meals a day (for two people), unlimited use of kayaks, snorkels, chairs, etc. Total price: $1008. (Yes, you read that correctly.) It's all good, as you read on nearly all of these reviews. Location: right in the middle of West Bay beach. Cabanas give a feeling of isolated privacy dues to lush...

Really enjoyed our recent visit to Bananarama. The staff was great - especially our waitress Sheena and our bartender Steven. The beach is magnificent, the snorkelling amazing. Just loved the whole experience.

My wife and I first vacationed here on our honeymoon seven years ago when the villas at Isla Pearl were under different ownership. We enjoyed the experience so much that we have made repeated visits with friends and family. This is my fourth trip here (her fifth) and things have only gotten better.

Wonderful experienced dive staff. Clean rooms, good variety and quality of food. Steven the bar tender did us a bang up job tending to our libation needs.

This was an excellent place to stay in the West Bay. I felt right at home, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were affordable, and the hotel is really unique to what you will find around West Bay. Everyone knows where Bananarama is, and many people from the other hotels come and hangout in your bar. The...
