Quite a pleasant setting, but facilities pretty rustic for the price. It is a long drive to town/shopping and you are captive to the resort for food and drink. If you like to be around bars, restaurants & action, I suggest West End/West Bay.

Dear Richard, 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. We pride ourselves on the miles of untouched beachfront and our over 100 acres of pristine and manicured landscape which is full of a... More

We recently visited Roatan for the first time. We have been on cruises in the Caribbean and stayed at some very beautiful resorts. This was a completely different but equally rewarding experience. We stayed at the Bay Breeze Bungalow in Palmetto Bay (I have reviewed the Bay Breeze Bungalow separately-awesome accommodations, wonderful owners and the best property managers around!) Palmetto...

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

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.

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

We were extremely concerned with this review of Palmetto Bay and closely tracked the investigation of our security company. Following that investigation, we met with board members, owners, security guards, our attorney, and the president of the security company and found the report made by "Gemina01" to be a defamatory fabrication, completely at odds from the results of our internal...
