The location and resort are beautiful. They have a few bugs to work out, but it's a new property. I think the price was excellent in relation to value. But, the real reason we enjoyed it so much is because Pablo Rodrigues took such good care of us. He was very kind and made sure that we were comfortable all... More

I recently attended a wedding at Pristine Bay. The ceremony and location were amazing ut everything else was not so great. First off, they try and rip you off at every possible turn. A simple car ride to the market cost 40 dollars. For a trip that took less than 10 minutes. I know, I know We should have just... More

Thank you for your comments. We agree that our spacious villas with private pools are indeed “amazing” and our staff is also a point of pride here at Pristine Bay. We’re pleased that your wedding day was successful. Our Pete Dye designed golf course would be spectacular anywhere, but being the only golf course on Roatan and its magnificent ocean... More

The villas at Pristine Bay were absolutely gorgeous! We were there for a wedding. We stayed in a 3 bed 3 bath villa with living room dining room and full kitchen with BOSCH appliances. There was a private pool off of our bedroom and a patio with a gas grill. The views of the golf course were amazing. The servers... More

The door locks they have on the villas are of poor quality. They have to be finagled with in order to get them to lock. They should be nicer for how nice the property is. That was slightly annoying. Also, they told us what the golf cart would cost per day and then they raised it? I didn't like that... More

Great place and has my three favorite activities; scuba diving, tennis and golf. Very classy resort with private beaches. Ask the dive master to take you out to the ship wreck. Huge black groupers will come up to meet you (i.e. they feed them all the time)! Also, this resort has the only golf course on the island "Black Pearl".... More

Beautiful villas. Very clean and friendly staff. Mr. Mike the scuba guide is especially helpful when scuba diving. This a great place to visit with family and friends. Not crowded like West Bay or West End.

We had a fantastic time at Pristine Bay. Our villa was very large and luxurious. We were two families - 4 adults and 3 kids and our four bedroom villa had more than enough space. The rooms are very good size with high standard finishes. Pristine Bay is very private so it is a great place for those wanting to... More

The location is very nice. The hotel and the view is incredible. Is a place that can be visit with family. It counts with tennis court. The food is delicious. The golf court is very nice, but the grass has to be check because it has área that have to be fix. It doesn´t count with free wifi

Thank you for your feedback and your kind words regarding our Villas! We are surprised to hear of your comments about the steak and lobster dinner though. In our follow-up meeting you had mentioned everything was excellent and that as you had not eaten previously, perhaps the food was too rich on an empty stomach. We did receive a number... More

It is a beautiful setting and the Villas are incredible. The pools are great hanging over the Caribbean Sea like that. Service was very friendly, prompt and helpful. The food is mediocre at best, and over priced. 1 or 2 good thing on the menu, the rest disappointing. Coconut Shrimp were good, and the pizza is better than you would... More
