First time visitors to Roatan in mid-July - went with about 10 friends from Texas!
Airport: 15min drive from airport to Pristine Bay -- the resort shuttle picked us up and had a nice tropical beverage waiting for us!
Arrival: easy check in with wonderful panoramic view sweeping across the Caribbean & two pools down below!
Villa: we stayed in a 2 bedroom villa that was very nicely furnished with all of the amenities one would expect of a resort competing with other higher end resorts in the Caribbean...wifi was a bit spotty and never mentioned the issue since there is still development underway.
Golf: the Pete Dye designed course is a wonderful highly playable golf course with a signature island green that has an elevated tee box again with great views of the water.... The course was nicely maintained and is maturing fast. Greens were great - most fairways had plenty of hitting space - more friendlier than most Pete Dye courses which is what most visitors would enjoy!
Pools: both large pools near the main building were wonderful with great views - service at the pool bar was excellent.
Beach: gorgeous beach with great sand, calm waters since the barriers reef is just off in the distance. If you can muster up the energy you can swim (snorkel / fins) to a small ship wreck about a .5mile off the beach - great snorkeling and visibility ...
Restaurant: Comfortable, very friendly service, with a nice varied selection of meals. Breakfast - lunch -and dinners all were great!
Hospitality: the property developer Luis & his brother clearly place a priority on creating a very positive guest experience. The staff and their hospitality was very warm, genuine, and inviting from the reception, restaurant, golf team, pool, etc!
Development: continues to build out with a nice hotel being constructed just 1000 yards from the main Pristine Bay building. Golf carts are offered to guest to provide shuttle from villas to main building.
Very impressive location, team, design, golf course, recreation activities (2 tennis courts and small soccer field for kids to play)...would highly recommend people experience Roatan & Pristine Bay!
