We were told they were full for the night but there was a 'lovely apartment' that is very nice and would be 'perfect for a special night". When we arrived, we were escorted away from the gorgeous resort, down a dirt road, past a swamp, to a 'boat house' about 500 meters away. The 'apartment' was the old dive master's...

We have traveled many places but have never enjoyed an experience as pleasant as Paya Bay. We spent two weeks enjoying beautiful Bliss Beach, the many trails through the property, daily yoga and snorkling, the varied menu selections and, especially, the friendly and helpful owners and staff. Picked up at the airport by Jose, a knowledgible and great driver, you...

We spent a naturist week this past May but am only now getting around to a review. Other reviews present the food, staff, grounds, etc. accurately. Paya Bay is not a 5-star resort but a wonderful place for getting off the beaten track and relaxing. We went during a naturist week - our 1st real social nudity experience and loved...

Just returned from an all-inclusive naturist week at Paya and it could not have been better! The East End location is quiet and serene and the opposite of the wannabe-upscale-tourist-condo experience that is now all too common in Caribbean resorts. Lurlene and all the staff were wonderful, the diving on the reef just offshore was outstanding, and the food was...

Let me preface this review by saying that we visited Paya Bay one week after hurricane Rina and a day after a torrential downpour of rain. We booked a day pass to Paya Bay while cruising central America, therefore we did not use any of the rooms. When we arrived at Paya Bay we were greeted with a tropical drink,...

The fact that my wife and I went back to Paya Bay goes to show how much we love it! Paya Bay is truly an amazing experience. The owners made us feel like family, while the beauty and vibe of the place make us want to go back again! It is certainly off the beaten path, which is great for...

If you are looking for a remote location that is nice and quiet, Paya Bay may be for you. With any resort we feel the staff working there either make it or break it for the guests. We found the staff we met at this small family run resort to be exceptional. Jose, Evelyn, Meerna and Winnie we found all...

We stayed at Paya Bay for the first two nights of our 7 night vacation to Roatan Sept. 24th & 25th. They picked us up at the airport (Jose is awesome), took us to the Super Mercado on the way to the property, and basically provided alot of history and information along the way. As previously stated, the property is...
