“Picture Perfect”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I booked directly with Little French Key, and everything went very smoothly. They picked us up and dropped us off in a timely manner. It was my husband and I along with our 3 children who loved this island. They have many things to do, and many nice areas to relax. The food was excellent. The bathrooms were well kept. They even have a zoo! My only complaint would be we all left really bit up. Not sure from what, could of been sand fleas or something in the water. I would for sure revisit!

Beautiful private island but over priced! We did have a lot fun however the drinks were expensive and the band (singer) was terrible! No indoor shower. Friendly staff.

Thank you for taking the time to post this positive review and finding us "Beautiful"...most people enjoy our Spainsh Guitar Player Joel...but there is plenty of areas that one can retreat to if you do not want to hear the music....when making remarks on cost of items please be mindful that we are located on a Private Island Off another Island in the Caribbean with high cost of fuel and everything including people, labor, material, ice, drinks, food, trash, etc needing to be continually transported back and fort........G-d Bless....

“Unwind in PARADISE”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

You may only have a few hours in Honduras if your on a cruise. Make sure to get the most out of your vacation time and money. When you step off the boat onto this island, see and hear the crystal blue waters, you can feel yourself slipping into a most relaxing state. The layout of this tiny island is perfect and there is something for everybody to enjoy. The tables in the water is where we chose to unwind in this paradise, but there's snorkeling, platform jumping, kayaking, horseback riding and the not to be missed zoo where you can hold baby Lisa, the most adorable monkey that loves to hug your neck. The lunch was great. The drinks were way better than on the ship. The staff was most friendly and helpful. Thanks for a GREAT day!

“Heaven in Honduras”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

After much research and through the great reviews on TripAdvisor, we booked an excursion through the LFK website, and paid a deposit. We were sent instructions on getting there. We met Dave down the road. There was a bus available but we rode down to the dock at Frenchy's 44 with Elvis who was very nice and offered to stop at stores. We paid the balance there and got bracelets and two drink tickets each. The boat ride to the island was quick (5-7 min tops). Upon arrival Edward came up to us immediately and gave us a separate tour of the island and zoo and told us he would take us out snorkeling when we were ready but until then we had unlimited access to the kayaks, paddle boards and could settle in anywhere we wish. We chose the small island with the bar and music. The water between the two islands was calm and a beautiful aqua color. The zoo was great and home to many friendly monkeys, which we got to hold, as well as macaws, tucans, and a lion named Lawrence. The jaguar was sick and unable to come out. The ones we got to hold were, Lisa, the spider monkey and a baby howler monkey that licked the salt off me and wouldn't let me go. I fell in love. A nice young man brought us a couple of plates (included in package). It was the best meal of the whole trip and included lobster, shrimp, chicken, carne asada, rice with beans, salad and diced mix of onions, tomatoes and green peppers that we scooped up with the yuca chips. It was so fresh and tasty. Edward and another guy took us around the island to snorkel for half an hour. We saw lots of tropical fish. We couldn't ride the horses because it wasn't included but the guys let me take a picture on the horse. We were there from 8am-3pm. We were in heaven and sad to leave. It was clean, fun, serene, and the staff was friendly, helpful and really interested in giving us a great experience and making sure we made it to the cruise in time. One recommendation though is to bring water shoes because the sand in the water is not that fine (out of their control) and it hurt my feet a bit.

“Paradise....recommend 1000%”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We found Little French Key island on Tripadvisor, we decided to book directly through Little French Key and not through Carnival. Take my advice and do the same. When you book through LFK themselves, you get to do so much more for the money. My Girlfriend and I plus another couple were the first ones on the island, we even crossed over to the island with the people going to work. The private island was ours for almost 2 hours. There was beautiful snorkeling, food and drinks but what truly set it apart was the Zoo. Lisa was a spider monkey that loves people and fell in love with my GF but if you book through Carnival, you can't hold her. Then I met Romeo, another spider monkey (female named Romeo??) she took a liking and a licking to me. She didn't want to let go of me and honestly I didn't care. This was a very cool experience all the way around. I would visit every year if I could. They truly know how to give you the paradise experience, they won't let you be late getting back to the boat either. We did several excursions on our cruise and all were fun, zip lining and cave tubing and tours, but Little French Key was by far my favorite.

Special thanks to Denrik the Monkey Trainer and Diola our bartender and tour guide of the island.
