We just returned from our vacation at Paya Bay. We were at the resort November 15-23. The most relaxing 8 days we've had in a long time. The trip was excellent. We will be back and soon. I have read many of the reviews here prior to going, and wasn't sure what we would get upon arrival. It was our... More

I have to agree with snorkelbubba. Having been to Paya Bay at least 4 times I have to start by saying we love the place, the atmosphere, the quiet, relaxing solitude, the views. But we had the same issues as snorkelbubba, and since management has not heard these problems stated before, I think it's time to concur with another reviewer.... More

Mom and I visited the resort mid August 2014. We spent 14 glorious nights in 2 of their cliff side rooms. What a delightful find. The location was absolutely perfect. It was totally off the beaten path. Although we did not rent a car, we got around with no problem. The staff made sure all our wishes and desires were... More

Over the past several years, we have observed Paya Bay's increasing web portrayal as naturist-friendly. For this visit we hoped that some progress would have been made in this regard, given Paya's goal of "continuing creation of a very private haven where all our guests can feel extremely comfortable…" We were disappointed. We were prepared for the tedious ritual of... More

Since our goal is always the highest possible level of customer satisfaction, Paya Bay Resort’s management is concerned about some of the issues raised in this review, particularly since it appears these clients have vacationed with us at least twice. We thank the reviewers for the positive comments they made about their Paya experience. This response is intended to help... More

We only went here for a day on a cruise excursion (we booked through them directly,not the cruise line). We happened to he stopping in Honduras during a nature week and wanted to check it out. They picked us up from the sea port on time and were sure to bring us back with plenty of time. This place is... More

We stayed there for two nights while we visited Roatan. I must say it was my favorite. The staff was exceptional and the food was homemade not buffet style like in Turquoise Bay. I am totally coming back to paradise! thanks everyone from Paya Bay for making it a great experience! Nely E

We visited at the end of July as part of a day excursion from a cruise line. We LOVED the place and are planning a future trip to stay a whole week. Our goal was to spend a day and see if it was the kind of place we wanted to stay at longer in the future. Well we are... More

We are going back for our third vacation in as many years to Paya Bay this month (Aug 2014). We love the total relaxation and the ability to "get away from it all" that this gem of a resort provides. Although my wife has several food allergies, she has never had a problem here. The food is superb and cooked... More

Paya Bay is a wonderful resort well worth the price. The ride from the airport: About 40-45 minutes in a minivan and the driver is very careful. Most of the way is coastal paved road but the last 6KM is gravel/dirt but not to bumpy. Arrival: All smiles and delicious cold fresh watermelon juice. 10 minutes later we were in... More

We recently traveled here for a long weekend (a Friday to a Monday) from New Orleans. I'd first like to mention how easy it is to get here. Unfortunately, no direct flights are from New Orleans, so we had to route through Houston. Not a big deal. A swift layover catapulted us on our way once we landed in Roatan.... More
