Just returned from my first visit to Roatan and my family's first attempts at Scuba diving. We have nothing but the highest marks for everyone at the dive center. They're enthusiasm, attention and patience with us "newbies" is unsurpassed. Thanks to Marco for enduring all my questions with a smile. Special thanks to Lanita and Chelsea for opening up a...

Marco and his team approach diving as an experience. Sure, they pay close attention to safety but the dive masters ensure that your diving experience is fun and they do their best to satisfy your diving expectations. They'll group divers of similar experience together and head to sites that challenge your skill. They speak to you and always ask what... More

We just got back from 11 days at Bananarama Dive Resort - we chose the place based on ithe dive centre, beach and reviews of the area. We made the right choice. The Dive Centre is run by Marco who was great explaining things and helping with equipment constantly, including answering email questions prior to our arrival. I had been... More

After Diving this all this past week, even during Christmas, Bananarama really accomodated us very well. My 2 daughters did a starter dive DSD 15 and 18 years old and loved it. Marco was great with them! I worked on my Advanced and almost completed it but the weather got in the way. Martin was my instructor/leader the whole week.... More

This is my second time back to the dive centre. My first was off season in May. Fantastic weather and a quiet time to visit. I had my own personal PADI instructor- Ms. Zoe Lopez. When it was time for fun dives a few others would join here and there. I return again in off season December. And again, personal... More

I was apprehensive about doing my cert dives in Roatan. I should not have been at all. Bananarama was a great place for a newbie like me. They were incredibly patient and could not have been more accommodating. I felt at home from the first dive. The entire staff was first class and the equipment and boats were top notch.... More

I honestly don't even know where to begin when describing my experience with Bananarama Dive Center. I just returned from Roatan last night, and am already planning my next trip down there! I've been a certified diver since I was 12, and have been lucky enough to dive all over the world since then (the Great Barrier Reef included). Diving... More

My fiance and I came to Roatan so that I could become a certified PADI diver and to enjoy the island. We stayed at Bananarama Resort and signed up with the Dive Center. I cannot fully explain what a wonderful job they did. All the dive masters / instructors are top of the line. I was in a two person... More

My husband and I can't say enough about the awesome people at the Bananarama Dive Center. This was my husband's 7th and my 4th time to dive with Marco and his crew. We get the best service and the best diving of anywhere we've been. Marco finally delivered on his promise to find me a seahorse. We found 4 and... More
