“This place ROCKS!!!!!”
Reviewed 12 May 2010

We had our destination wedding in Roatan in March, 2010. A lot of family and a ton of friends showed up. We literally took over Bananarama for a week. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. A very attentive and accomodating staff. Want something? Just ask. Actually...didn't even have to ask for the most part.

They arranged transportation. They have a very fun and knowledgeable dive staff that catered to our diving needs. Our rooms were clean, comfortable, and plenty cold when it got hot outside. The grounds are immaculate. They work very hard to make this resort super nice.

On the eve of our wedding, we discovered that our wedding fireworks were being held "hostage" at the local cusoms office. THE OWNER, Guy, personally went there and paid the "ransom" He just left them in our room and never said a word about what he had to do to get them. When we found out and went to pay him, he said it was his wedding present to us! Thanks Guy....that's super cool.

When you stay here, be sure to check out the Vintage Pearl Restaurant located on premises. It is an excellent fine dining restaraunt. Great food, great wines, great ambiance.

We give Bananarama and its' staff the highest recommendation.

This is the 2nd time I have traveled to Roatan and the 2nd time I have stayed at Bananarama. The rooms are very clean, the A/C is very cold, the beach is heavenly, the cleanliness of the resort or excellent, the nearby reef is amazing, and the staff are at your beckon call. Adolfo and Gabriel were willing to help and provide ideas and quick service at the bar. I talked with other return travelers and we all agreed this was one of the best locations on the island!

Now is my turn to write back, before deciding about Bananarama, trip advisor was a big help, and all the excelent reviews I read on Bananarama are so true, but once you get there you realize how wonderful and special this place is.
We arrived on april 17th 2010, and stayed for 2 weeks, We arrived in a group of 31 people, friends and family. when you think of a destination wedding, you think of everything that could go wrong, but thanks to all the wonderful people in Bananarama that made our day so perfect!!! it exceeded our expectations of a perfect wedding in paradise.

Everything in Bananarama is wonderful, rooms are nice, comfortable, clean, good AC good bathrooms. the staff is amazing, went out of their way to make you feel at home.
the bar, kitchen, mades, dive shop, vintage pearl staff, and of course Guy!!! what a wonderful group of people.
you can't go wrong by choosing to stay in Bananarama, located in west bay the most beautiful beach in Roatan!!! is absolutely paradise!!!
they have fun activities for you everyday, live music, movie night, games, karaoke, new menus, good deals on drinks!!!
When you call the office, they will make sure you get what you need, Dennise, Louise, Guy, Mal, Marco, Martin, Sophia, carolina, Alberto, Tim, Angela, and so many more thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In recent years, my family has traveled to Roatan several times. My parents, who are in their mid-50s, decided on their last trip to the island to stay at Bananarama. Needless to say, when the whole family returned less than a year later, there was no question where we would stay. The accommodations are excellent, as is the service (they even did our dishes for us!), and the adjoining restaurant and bar, which has one of the most inviting and friendly staffs around, offers a great mix of food and beverages at very reasonable prices. Bananarama is the perfect place for a tropical paradise get-away, without all the hustle and bustle of a huge resort.

We went to Roatan for 5 days from the 19th April. What an amazing place it really is the undiscovered part of the Caribbean. Most of the time the beaches were either empty or very quiet, the sea is incredibly clear and the weather fantastic.
We did not stay at Bananarama but went there most days for something to eat and drink. The atmosphere was great and everyone staying there said how good it was. The food was excellent and the service of "Carolina" was superb. She was really friendly and nothing was too much trouble, by the end of our short stay she was a friend! We would definitely stay at Bananarama when we return to Roatan which we definitely will!!

My boyfriend and I discovered this jewel on our first visit to Roatan a number of years ago. Since then we have brought others down to enjoy the charm and enchantment of both West Bay on Roatan and the accommodations of Bananarama and Island Pearl.
We all agree that what separates this resort from others is the PEOPLE!
From pulling up our usual bar stools at the Thirsty Turtle, or going to grab a chaise to enjoy the beautiful beach, enjoying a sumptuous dinner at the Vintage Pearl Restaurant, or visiting the office to request a movie or use of the computer, our experience is consistent. The people are generous with their time, and genuine in their desire to share their beautiful piece of paradise!

If you visit before we can get down there the next time, please say “hello” to our friends and family…

Guy and Tina, the owners, Louise, reservations, our best and ever so helpful buddy Phil… and the Thirsty Turtle and Restaurant staff to include, Tim, Edwin, “Puma”, Carolina, Jessie, Jessica, and the safest driver on Roatan, our buddy Omar.
My apologies for omitting some very hard working staff by name… but thanks for always keeping the beach looking as awesome as it does, and our accommodations as
Comfortable as you do!

This is my 4th stay at Bananarama. I used to make it a point to go somewhere different on every vacation, but since I discovered Bananarama I haven't gone anywhere else. I love to snorkel and having a terrific reef with a lot of diverse marine life right off the beach right in front of my room is something that I have not been able to find anywhere else in my stays around the Carribean. The owners live on the property and are very attentive to your every need. Where else would you expect to have a resort owner/partner knock on your door because he didn't want you to miss a rainbow. Tim and Puma will have my drink in front of my before I'm fully on the bar seat and Carolina will wait on you hand and foot. The lodgings are simple but the gounds are lush with tropical plantings and palm trees to shield you from the sun. If you like to be on or under the water this is the best place to be.
