January 2014 trip, ugly, smelly tap and pool water, bad food, limited restaurants, terrible wine in the restaurant. Great diving, but we found out that the dive operations management team that treated us so well has moved to another resort in, West Bay. And... the welcome drink the website mentions was nowhere to be found! Did I mention bedbugs? Yes,... More

Don't allow the beautiful beach to lure you into this run-down has been! It pains me to see a so-called resort take this small island for granted. The establishment itself needs to be bull-dozed and taken over by experienced investors who are well-versed in the hospitality industry. I theorize that the dilapidated "resort" has a direct effect on the staff's... More

Although we did not stay at the hotel we spent 4 months at the marina at Fantasy Island. I cannot say enough about Jerry the Harbormaster. He was so accommodating to us as well as all the boat owners. He by far is the best Harbormaster we have come across in our 2 years of cruising full time. For example... More

I had been there in the 90's. The hotel was the same. The restaurant had diminished substantially. Before you ordered from a menu and everything was made to order. This time it is a buffet. I do not like them as the food seems to be made so nobody likes it or hates it. I like fresh seafood, chicken or... More

I was happily surprised by all the staff that remembered us and genuinely seemed happy to see us back so soon. It was like coming back to friends! Again the rooms were basic but very clean... More

I had not been at Fantasy Island since 2006. I had been concerned with negative review from 2012 and early 2013. I remembered the good diving and decided to take another look. My wife and I stayed for 2 weeks 5/3/14 - 5/17/14 and were very pleased. This is a nice dive resort with a great location. The beach is... More

I liked almost everything about FIBR: the diving, the food, the facilities, the animals, the beach, the snorkeling over in front of CocoView, the workers. But not having fresh water in the showers was a deal breaker for me, and in spite of everything else, I would not return. I imagine that they rely on well water, which comes in... More

This was our first trip to Roatan so we didn't quite know what to expect of the island and of Fantasy Island Resort. Both were a little rough around the edges but perfect for a quiet getaway full of excellent SCUBA diving and sun-drenched relaxation. Fantasy Island Resort is average, facilities-wise, with decent size rooms, clean rooms, and 180 degree... More
