Reviews are by definition, highly subjective and are strongly influenced by what your expectations are and where you have been before. My wife and I are in our early 30s and have traveled to AI locations over 20 times, rarely in extremely luxurious but never in less than a 4 stars. We've stayed at some places I'd qualify as excellent....

I didn't stay at this resort, but was a short walk from mine. Great lunch specials! Loved their pizza!! They also have yummy ice cream in their dive shop. Friendly staff. Numerous activities you can book! We did an dolphin encounter. It was amazing!

We chose Bananarama Resort and Dive center after doing extensive research and we couldn't have been more pleased with our decision and experience. The location of Bananarama is in the heart of West Bay beach - a spectacular palm tree lined sandy beach full of restaurants, bars, and activities. There wasn't a need to go anywhere else on the island,...

Everything my daughter told me about Bananarama Resort was so true. We had such a good time there with our family. There was something to do for everyone or just relax. The resort was well maintained and the rooms clean. We enjoyed our meals and the friendliness of the waiters, Carolina, Alec, Shanny, to name a few. The entire staff...

I'm not really sure where to start since everything about this holiday was great. The island is really beautiful with a lot of relief and quite lush with vegetation. The welcome was fabulous (far better than we got at Sandals in Exuma in November !!!). A drink and a quick walk around the property and our room for orientation. We...

This was our second trip back. This time we brought two of our married children and my mother. We wanted a relaxed family vacation for a group with a variety of interests and Bananarama had something for the entire group. Whether laying out on the beach, snorkeling or arranging an excursion, the staff accommodated. We had four divers in our...

I spent the last week of May here and it was a fantastic experience all round. The accommodation was simple while being clean and comfortable. The rooms were well maintained and cleaned daily. We had aircon all the time. The staff were all very friendly and attentive to any issues. Keep in mind that this is a very 3rd world...

Have stayed here twice and will be back. We stayed in villa number 29 right above The Vintage Pearl Restaurant. It has two bedrooms, two full baths, living room and a full kitchen. If you want a chill, affordable dive trip this is the place to stay. Marco and Marc were fantastic!

I was at the resort for a wedding on the beach and absolutely loved it. After the wedding, we feasted on low-carb foods, including desserts. The atmosphere is relaxed-- it is Honduras, after all, and our host and hostess made us feel very welcome. I would definitely go back and stay longer than a day!!

The conditions at Bananarama are rustic - hot water is inconsistent, and the resort needs work. Overall the resort is just ok. Expect bugs and prepare accordingly. On days when they spray for mosquitoes it just forces them into the rooms (one night we stopped counting when we killed 40!). You'll also want to bring your own beach towels. We...

Thank you for staying with us! All of our rooms at Bananarama are wooden structure, with AC and a hammock out front. We agree that our vision of Roatan is not for everyone, but we are pretty laid back here so if anyone has a problem please let us know. We have over 100 staff members to accommodate our guests...
