This was an outstanding vacation for us. The resort is small, but not when it comes to service. Genesis took care of dinner reservations, activities, and anything we needed help with. The bar and restaurant are open all day, with Randy getting you anything you need. The grounds, beach, and chairs are all cleaned, raked, and prepped every day. You...

It was our pleasure to have you at Xbalanque. I am fortunate to have a great staff who truly care about Xbalanque and our guests. Most of them have been with me for many years and have become family. Roatan is a beautiful island to enjoy and experience great adventures. I hope you will come back to see us soon....

Roatan has grown exponentially in the past 25 years, and while the cruise ship hoards can be bothersome, not here at Xbalanque, with six handsomely appointed suites, bull climate control, and fabulous living areas and common areas. The Lotus Restaurant is on premises and has a open air bar that faces the sea. The food and accommodations are among the...

My family and I just returned from our third stay at Xbalanque. The hotel and staff were as outstanding as ever. Once again Marcos made sure that every aspect of our trip - from diving, to sightseeing and cab rides, - was taken care of seamlessly. Indeed his hospitality and friendship are a large part of why we have returned...

My husband and I just spent two weeks at Xbalanque and we would return in a heartbeat. We went to Routan to scuba dive (see my review of Quality Time Divers), but we didn't want the typical dive resort. We were delighted to discover Xbalanque, a very intimate place where, at the hotel's dock, we were picked up at the...

What a well thought out hidden gem!! Perfectly designed and decorated to the smallest detail. Great separation between the units, pools, hotub, outdoor sitting areas, it's as if you are the monkey sitting in the tree watching the beautiful water and sunsets. Food is amazing, breakfast, lunch, and dinner!!! From fresh lobster to margaritas on the rocks to die for....

Paradise defined is the best way to describe this gem. St. Barths, Cayman Islands have nothing on this resort. From the moment you arrive you decompress and only can relax! It's awesome to only live the water life. From diving, to water taxis and the beautiful pool. One of the best kept secrets that you'll want to know.
