If you are superman your not going to like it at Here. There are no phone booths no tall buildings and miss lane is not here. My wife and I had heard the service was slow, well we are not here to be in a hurry Other than the night of the superbowl the service was good. Please be advised that there are crazy specials everyday there. 2 large pizza's for twenty bucks was unreal. A huge cheesburger with fries 6 bucks are you kidding..... Lobster dinner 22.00 wow. The best part is they have a lot of good drinks, 15 differant beers, foo foo drinks and great mixed drinks and they dont hold back on the alcohol trust me. Our room we were in 14 upstairs great a.c. cold fridge great front porch with hammock. We had the water die on us completely just stopped I was all full of soap when I said what was up my wife had to go get the damn camera and make it a kodak moment. The water was off 5 minutes came back on and no big deal. I happened to run into the owner a day later and told him what had occured he is onsite all the time awesome dude he wanted to make it a big issue and send out the troops we said no thanks we are on a island for crying out loud things happen. He ask if he could do something for us or comp something and we said dont be silly see ya later, like I said great guy. Speaking of great guys be sure and have there driver Steve Hamilton pick you up at the airport. This Roatan Native took us to his personal home and we met his mother and the rest of his family.Incredible what simple lives these people live. Steve took us all around the island one day and we saw how the people there really live no media pics you know what I mean....Steve told us the owner does not lay off when it is slow and thats why he chose bananarama to work for. Steve will shop for you in town if needed. Let me tell you a little on the dive shop. We did 12 dives each my wife and I.First they took no money from me until I said I am done diving how much do I owe you, second Marco the dive shop manager introduced us to our divemaster zoe 5ft 1 if that around 35 years old a very attractive gal from England, FROM THAT POINT ON ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. IT WAS DIVE, DIVE AND DIVE. Zoe would tell us all each morning where we were diving and then ask us would you guys prefer to go somewhere else.We did a night dive unreal,unreal,unreal.a shipwreck dive down to 105 feet. she briefed us big time and off we went....incredible operation no rush when we went to eat breakfast in the morning we said we are divers are food was there in 5 minutes the dive shop and kitchen are on the same page. Incredible is what it is.We had heard the electricity goes out a lot there it did during the superbowl what a blast that was but they have a generator and unfortunately it came on in like 5 minutes but in the time it was off it was so peaceful and quiet and the sound of the ocean wow.... The beach is really cool because you can lay in the shade or the sun and the cruise people cant. they have a rope they cant cross on the beach. there is a floating deck out in the water you can grab a beer and head there. all in all this is still in the stone ages a lot of fun without the bells and whisles. Last comment THE BUGS WE SPRAYED 40 PERCENT DEETS IN A CAN FROM OUR KNEES DOWN TO OUR FEET EVERYTIME WE LEFT OUR ROOM. WE GOT THE GOOD SMELLING DEETS. WIFE HAD 3 BITES I HAD 7. SO WHATS ALL THE BUG TALK.
