We got off the cruise ship and waited maybe five minutes for the van to take us to San Simon Beach Club at Tabayana Beach. First they stopped at the zip line location to let off half the van. Then on to the beach. He let us off and we agreed to meet him at the entrance to the beach... More

Was able to see a bit of the local life and countryside on the Van transfer from Coxen Hole cruise ship pier to Tabayana Beach. Beautiful location. Many white plastic loungers awaiting in sun or shade areas. Security close by assures you that your belongings will be watched. Lots of vendors that are monitored by Security. Not pushy if you...

We took our kids to the beach and had a great buffet meal. The papaya was FANTASTIC! The beach was lovely, but be prepared for the beach vendors. I did buy two pretty shells of a young man, but ask the staff for vendor advice before you head out.

We got off the cruise ship with the first wave on purpose as this was a return visit to this beautiful location. We got into one of the first shuttles out and were the first to arrive. Front row seats are the best for this attraction as the people watching, the beach activities and the water is all right there.... More

Snorkelling is great at the end of the beach. The reef is right there with so many fish. If you bring bread you can feed the fish. There is a guy on the beach that sells donuts. He is an older fellow with a beard, kind of like Santa. We heard about him and found him on the beach. Great... More

If your cruise ship stops in Roatan, you've got to spend some time here. A short ride through town and then you are on a beach with palm trees and the bluest water!! Snorkel in waist high water over coral reefs with colorful fish. Bring an underwater camera for some fantastic memories! Just do it!🌞

The beach was lovely, although covered in seaweed you had to wade through to get into the water. This I could handle. However when my husband's snorkel mask got covered with toilet paper, I was out of that water in a second. There was garbage in the water-juice packets, garbage bags, baggies, and sanitary pads. It was disgusting. I would... More

Docked here for a day during our cruise. The beach resort is beautiful, I wish that the bar area would be more exciting. They provide beach chairs but no other service. They also rent out snorkels but other than that, it's just okay. The food was not that great but hot and filling.

We have seen many beaches, but none with such clear, crystal blue waters. Tabyana beach is one where I have already been searching for plane tickets to go back. This is a short beach with creamy white sand and the bluest of blue waters. I felt very safe and comfortable here. At our location we had security guards watch our... More

The day we were at Tabyana Beach followed a couple days of storms in Roatan. That resulted in a lot of weeds all along West Bay Beach. It made getting out into the reef a little more challenging, but well worth it. The water was very clear and I saw a lot of fish. The reef is quite shallow there,... More
