A beautiful residential complex, not a standard hotel but vacation rental villas. It has a welcoming lobby with an impressive beach view. Rooms are very comfortable, nicely decorated with top of the line appliances. The villa I stayed in had a private pool, along with a sun deck perfect for small private parties. Once in the complex you are far... More

we had no intention of buying anything when we came to stay for 3 days. very impressed with everything; we were not new to Roatan or luxury carribean resorts having just stayed at Turks & Caicos the month before and Anthony's Key before. Only two relatively minor complaints: 1. those darn "no-see-ums" which seem to come out in the late... More

Dear Ross!! WELCOME!!!!!! We are delighted to have you as a permanent guest! Regarding those "no-see-ums"... Some say God put them in the island to bite us so we know this place is not a dream! Seriously, we do everything in our power to control by fumigating the beach. Note we provide repellent to our guests at the beach and... More

Its one of the best places you can stay at in Roatan if you want luxury and comfort.

We went for a wedding and the staff earned a masters on Slowiness. Them being inefficient and slow can really get to your nerves. Was there before all the guests arrived and even with only 6 customers at the restaurant they were extra slow. The views are great, food was good ( I recommend tuna tartare) although if you go...

I'm sitting in Pristine Bay now, writing this review. There's much to like in Pristine Bay, but overall, the resort needs to work out a number of kinks in its operations and details. First, the bad so we can end on a good note: 1. The pillows and bedding smell of mildew. In three of the rooms in the two... More
