Bananarama Beach and Dive Resort
Ranked #5 of 14 Hotels in West Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 March 2010

We loved our stay on Roatan, Bay Islands of Honduras. Bananarama is located on West Bay Beach, one of the top 10 beaches in the Caribbean. The food, the drink and the help were excellent. We never felt at risk at any time; the resort and the island are secure. Diving and snorkeling were excellent. Prices are reasonable. Can't beat it!

We can't comment on the accommodations as we did not stay at this resort. However, we found one of the staff extremely helpful. On a recent trip to Roatan (Feb. 1-8, 2010), my wife and I we had reserved a taxi to tour the island from West Bay. Unfortunately the taxi driver/tour guide never showed up. Although we were staying at the Mayan Princess resort, one of the staff of the Bananarama Dive Resort (Carolina) went out of her way to call us a taxi/driver (Sambo). Carolina saved the day for us as we had a wonderful personalized tour of the island. Sambo was extremely flexible and stopped basically anywhere we wanted. His fee was very reasonable. Special thanks to Carolina for setting us up with Sambo.

I've stayed at more than 25 places in Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Cozemul, Tulum, Belize, Costa Rica and Guatamala.
Bananarama is the best! Just down the beach is world class snorkeling a short swim from shore. The dive shop is great. All of the staff is friendly and helpful. The food and drinks are great and very reasonable.

We very much enjoyed our week at Bananarama, woke each morning to breakfast served by delightful servers underneath palm trees in a beautiful setting, After breakfast we would head to the dive shop to find all our gear ready, the dive masters were great they kept track of our dives and took us to new places each day. The best dives we have experienced, better than Hawai by far and better than Cozmel or other caribean islands we have dove at. Our room was cleaned each day the room was nice the bed was great,
We will be returning to Banarama again for another wonderful week.

i really like west bay and there are numerous places to stay. i toured several rooms at facilities prior to deciding on bananarama and the thirsty turtle. i found the staff helpful, but the usual wear and tear...after all you are on the water. the island speaks for itself in its beauty and amenities...of course it is more expensive than the mainland. i did not venture to the east side of the island, which i will do in may, but i think the atmosphere, staff and lack of tv's at the bananarama facility much to my liking. oh, and it would be nice if the bar were open a bit later!! and this is based on my one time trip to the island...but more to come.

I work in a very stressful job and was in need of some relaxation. This place is just what the doctor ordered. From the moment my girlfriend and I stepped onto the grounds we were greeted by the friendly staff and treated like family. The rooms aren't fancy but, they have a home like feel to them and are very comfortable. There is a covered porch with a hammock to be able sit outside and enjoy the scenery, even when it's raining. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and they are always working on them to make sure they always look good. The scenery is stunning, the ocean peaceful. This is a place for relaxation and we will be returning.
