Club Natale Bay Villas

Reviewed 2 April 2013

We did this as a shore excursion for our cruise. We booked it on our own through Travelocity. Upon arriving in Roatan, we were directed through gate 7 to look for our driver. We found them with a paper sign and they got us and the other couple that also had booked on their own into the taxi/shuttle and off we were whisked to Club Natale Bay Villas. The driver was most excellent giving us history and such on our way. We appreciated it as we always like to hear from the locals about their area. We arrived and Anthony got us our snorkeling gear and offered to take us out on kayaks, the other couple went, we declined opting to snorkeling near the beach area. It also gave us full run of the beach, we were the only ones on the beach so we had it all to ourselves. This is the place to go if you want to be treated well and not have the crowds the cruise ship shore excursions offer. This was paradise. My husband loved it so much he wants to visit Roatan for a week (well longer but work factors in there somewhere), in particular, he'd like to go back to Natale Bay. We didn't meet the owner but I'm guessing that he was not there at the time, his staff did an EXCELLENT job of keeping us in drinks and food. I enjoyed the nature trail, saw a hermit crab and several lizards and iguanas. Got some great pictures. We are really thinking about returning and bringing our kids. It was beautiful, at first we were nervous but the day was all we expected and then some.

Room Tip: We couldn't rate some things as we only had a day pass.

The day started with our driver waiting to pick us up just outside the cruise ship terminal. It took less than 10 minutes to get to Club Natale. The property was well maintained - beautiful pool with a amazing view, nice landscaping, changing facilities, clean bathroom. We enjoyed the service - the staff was attentive, the burgers were great, and the pina coladas were the best! Prices were also reasonable. It was nice being able to snorkel off the beach. A guide was there to take us kayaking and snorkeling also. It was a very relaxing, no stress experience. There were not many people there, so over crowding was not an issue. Our day at Club Natale wonderful!

This place was beautiful but overpriced for what you got. There were only a handful of people there when we were there and the only service was around the pool. The pool was spectacular, it was an infinite pool but no real view. The beach was a distance away down a hill. It was not an easy walk, especially if you needed a bathroom or cocktail more than once. The bar down by the beach was closed and there were no bathrooms down there! That was deeply disappointing because I would have preferred to hang out by the beach but it just wasn't a good option. Because of that we didn't take advantage of any of the advertised included services like kayaks or snorkeling.

Now the staff made the day! They were all friendly and awesome. Anthony was the best!! The lunch was so so. You do order off a menu but it was very limited. A nice Caribbean buffet probably would have been better but with the size of the crowd it would not be reasonable. Oh, and there was one bathroom. Yes, just one! If this place got busy that would certainly be a problem!

I would go back I think but not for $75 pp. That is just way to much to not even be on the beach!

Dear Guests, I am so sorry you were not completely satisfied with our Resort. I have spoken to our staff to make sure all our guests understand our program and are serviced with the highest excellence! Our $75 package includes the following: All you can drink from the bar including alcoholic drinks (including specialty mixed drinks), beer, wine, soda, juice and bottled water, full meals, Kayaks, Snorkel gear and a Snorkel Tour Guide who takes you out to the coral beds and internationally renowned dive sites, beach chairs and towels, Roof Top View Terrace with views of the entire island of Roatan East and across the sea to the mainland, Cafe & Bar, infinity pool (with ocean views across the forest tree-tops (see all the pictures from our website and guests), access to the nature and mangrove trail,and round trip transportation. Comparatively speaking our package is quite a good price. We do have lower priced packages for just one meal and drink, or just the beach... pretty much we cater to whatever our guests want. We do have 3 bathrooms in the cafe and just below the pool. It is approximately 500 feet from the beach to those bathrooms and the pool/cafe/bar. We offer rides to anyone who has trouble walking. We only open our beach cafe/bar when we have 20 or more people, however our staff should have made it clear that they would stock the refrigerator at the open bar for you and/or bring mixed drinks to you on-demand! And, they are trained to check in with you on a regular basis when you are lounging on the beach. Once again, my apologies to you! I have made our staff and the Guest Services Manager aware that your needs were not met so we can improve! Please feel free to write to me with any more comments or suggestions at clubnatalebayvillas@gmail.com ! Sincerely, Joseph Natale

This was our most relaxing and peaceful stops when traveling to Honduras. The staff and owner treated us like family. The food was authentic and wonderful. The beach was so quiet and peaceful. We basically had it to ourselves to do the do not allow large crowds in here. Swimming pool was great. Nice landscaping and natural caribbean surroundings. We cannot say anything bad about this place. All thumbs up!!!!

Room Tip: As with our day stops, we cant say much about rooms. But we were allowed to go look at the rooms and...

This was the best day of our 7 day cruise! We relaxed, played volleyball, swam, snorkeled, and just took it all in. Very calm and serene environment. Fabulous pool and even better service and people. This is a great week getaway for a family to take without a cruise, my boys would love it!

My husband and I, along with 3 other couples from the Norwegian Star shared Club Natale on Feb. 7, 2013. It was our private resort, and it was magnificent. Joe Natale is a very gracious host. The staff is excellent, the view is magnificent, the beach is secluded. This was our 17th cruise, and I really hate to share this secret, but I want Club Natale to succeed. This is a beautiful, peaceful, out-of -the way- place.

Room Tip: We purchased a day pass and did not spend the night.

My family and I (my husband & daughter 12) just returned from a 7 day stay at this condo and have to say it was nothing less than excellent! The condo itself was very large, clean and would easily sleep 8 to 10 people. Condo had everything we needed. The road leading up to the complex took us a little bit by surprised as it was quite bumpy and rough, however, the drive was worth it. The view from the condo was absolutely beautiful and the constant breeze coming off the water was wonderful and eliminated the need for air-conditioning most of the time. I was pleasantly surprised to find a masseuse on the beach and enjoyed one of the best massages I think I have ever had. Angelo the bartender and Joesph Natal were extremely helpful and very nice!! The food and drinks in the bar/restaurant were surprisingly good and reasonably priced. The pool and beach were never busy. The condo is located in a quieter part of the island but not too far from anything including West End & West Bay. If you plan to stay in this condo, I would recommend you get a car. Overall we had a great time and would recommend this place to anyone who is planning a trip to Roatan!
