We spent a couple of weeks at Sundancer earlier this year. It is an absolutely beautiful spot with brilliant tropical gardens, mango and palm trees and is located right on a post card perfect Caribbean beach. The coral reef is just a little piece off shore, close enough to swim to, and the snorkeling was the best we have ever enjoyed. The people at Sundancer were friendly and very welcoming. Our cabana, while a rather rustic wooden building, was exactly as described and we really have no complaints about it.


In spite of all these tremendous positives, I could not recommend Sundancer to anyone. The stench from septic tanks was beyond anything we have ever experienced!!! There seems to be septic tanks all over Sundancer. . One was located close to the lane that leads to the road and it emitted a constant unpleasant smell. The truly terrible one was next to the Dive Shop. The stench from this one was not constant but rather came in waves. Because it is so hot there, you need to have the windows and doors open to catch a breeze. Unfortunately, more than once breezes brought in such strong fecal odours during breakfast and dinner that we were not sure we could hold down our meal. The stench also blew in during the night and was so fetid at times that it woke us up.

I have no idea why the septics are so bad at Sundancer, as we travelled all over the island and nowhere did we encounter similar septic problems. These septics are obviously not working properly and they are close to the sea, which leads to the question: Along with the horrific smell is there environmental damage?

We stayed at Peter's Place #14. We had comfortable accommodations for 7 adults and 4 kids. We highly recommend it.

I just returned from 3 months on Roatan and was fortunate to have stayed at Sundancer Cabanas in Sandy Bay. Very centrally located - just a quick taxi or bus ride to W. Bay or Coxen Hole and within walking distance of 3 restaurants. Shrimp at Blue Parrot is sooooo good!!! Skippy Kirsch, the property mgr. is a wealth of hospitality and information and Dan & Holly can handle all your diving and snorkeling needs. Loved the dock and spent many tranquil hours on the top deck watching waves break over the reef. Snorkeling is awesome on the reef at Sundancer - much better than at W. Bay. Fireflies, Hummingbirds, beautiful blooming plants and beach - just wonderful. Do bring insect repellant - sandflies everywhere.

I love traveling with my daughter who researches everything to the nth degree and finds wonderful bargains. While we would have loved to stay in West End for the gorgeous white beach, our budget said "won't happen." We stayed 5 days at Sundancer and met lots of interesting people and had easy access to other towns by taxi. The Blue Parrot was a wonderful restaurant right by the road on the property. The best part of the trip was that I felt safe and would definitely go back solo. I did not feel that way in Tobago 2 years before.

Taxis can be expensive if you chose to explore all the facets of the island, but I don't think I would have wanted to rent a car there as the drivers are rather "spirited." Skippy, the manager of the Sundancer was very accomodating with advice and any needs we had. While my daughter likes to try new places, I prefer comfort and routine and would definitely come back here.

Loved it - especially Lynne & Bob (the managers) ability to get things done. This spot was perfect for our needs - with two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bath and two screen porches. we also enjoyed and used daily the pool - a perfect place ot relax and cool off after a long day. We also liked the location - and enjoyed the beach and reef - although it is a bit of a swim to the reef. having a car is certainly handy, but taxis are frequent and very cheap on Roatan. We also liked the nearby restaurants - Blue Parrot and Sunshine - different cuisines, but both good.
Diving was our attraction to Roatan - and the diving is very nice - not a lot of big fish, but hopefully they will return as the marine park gains traction. Sundancer is a nice choice for those who want to be a bit away from West End and have a condo like experience in a nice setting. But, do bring bug spray - there are lots of bugs in the tropics.
We were very pleased with the Sundancer.
