This is our second time to Palmetto Bay... the last time it was just my wife and I almost 10 years ago. With some of the negative reviews we were hesitant, but we decided to book our spring break family vacation. We rented a car and found that to be very helpful as we love to explore different restaurants. With... More

I've reviewed the house that we stayed at separately (Almond House) since we rented it through TripAdvisor. This review is for the property/resort. The staff at the restaurant are great. Erick and Gilroy were great wait staff and always made us feel welcome. The food we ordered was very good. One night we preordered a special meal (typical Honduran dinner)... More

This quiet resort is wonderful for a laid back relaxing stay. Having a house to do this is the best. I slept the afternoon away in the hammock on the porch during a rain storm and it was so rejuvenating. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was good. I was there during the slow season, so there were only a... More

Dear Olafrompgh - We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the peace and tranquility that The Resort at Palmetto Bay offers. We are definitely not in the tourist area's which is what makes our setting unique. In regards to the diving and activities, we are in the process (under the new ownership) of adding a full service activities center... More

After a great day of snorkeling around the island, our boat captain took us to Palmetto Bay Plantation for lunch. We were met at the dock by an owner of the resort who immediately made us feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. Before we could even dock he was barking orders at our captain saying we should have called first and that... More

Dear John, I am terribly sorry to hear that your day trip to our resort was ruined by one of the homeowners. We have spoken to him and can promise it will not happen again. His actions were completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated at our resort. We strive for only the best experience for our guests and clearly... More

i just returned from my third visit to the beautiful Palmetto Bay Plantation. It is a secluded resort on its own beach, perfect for a relaxing and quiet vacation. What stands out at Palmetto Bay is its staff, specifically Eric in the restaurant and Maritsa in the office. They always go out of their way to embrace each guest and... More

My family and I just returned from our stay at Palmetto Bay Plantation. Our stay had it's ups and down's, but overall we enjoyed our time on Roatan. We are experienced travelers and have stayed in over two dozen beach resorts throughout Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America. The overall beauty can not be debated as Palmetto is stunning, unfortunately... More

Palmetto Bay Plantation is a beautiful and secluded development on a gorgeous bay. While it doesn't have the advantages of the "machine" that makes international hotel chains run smoothly, it has the genuine warmth of a small community bent on making your trip meaningful and memorable. The houses are set in amongst the trees and the beach is groomed, hammocks... More

Well where do I start… at first glance the place was beautiful and the staff seemed very friendly. That is until they robbed us blind of all our electronics, cash and anything else they could get their hands on. On day one while my group (all females) was asleep someone or some persons entered our villa, our room and our... More

This client was traveling with the client below, which is why the response is repeated here. We were extremely concerned with this review of Palmetto Bay and closely tracked the investigation of our security company.
