Our 4th trip to Paya Bay was as good as the first 3. This small, family owned resort has charm, friendliness, a great beach and wonderful pathways throughout the 20 acre rocky and natural areas. The employees have been consistently pleasant and customer oriented. Most have been there for all of our visits. The kitchen staff works hard to keep... More

We just got back from the best 10 days at PBR. After reading many of the reviews they are right on about this place. We will try and add some of the things we have learned on our trip. But, first we have to thank everyone at Paya Bay for making our holiday so special. The whole place is just... More

In all my travels to the tropics I don't think I've ever been somewhere that offered such opportunity to immerse myself in natural beauty everywhere I went! So much to explore on the acres of Playa. I was there 5 days and left a bit of my heart there. Granted I am one who revels in nature and am easily... More

The place is totally amazing, indescriptible i am from Honduras and i can´t believe we have this little piece of paradise in our land. I recommend this place if you want to escape for a weekend they also have a nude beach and everything is really private. The staff really nice and friendly.

Yes, many people seem to be head over heels about Paya Bay. Granted, it's a sweet little spot on the less populated part of Roatan. Our biggest complaint during our 4 night stay, SERVICE. I was confined to crutches and unable to assist my wife with carrying the luggage up and down those many stairs to our room. At no... More

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Paya Bay and the Island of Roatan. This beautiful resort at the east end of the island offers many scenic spots to take in the sea views and enjoy the rugged coastline. It also has a perfect sandy beach with small dipping pool and a separate private sun bathing area on a secluded... More

Whether visiting for the afternoon or for the week, you're free to be yourself here...Shed your clothes (or not) & take a leisurely stroll on the beach or skinny dip...snorkel out to a nice little reef...do some yoga...relax in a hammock...have a delicious lunch inside or...

I couldn't find a listing for the restaurant, so I put my comments here.We had a great experience the first time! The second experience was even better than the first. The food server mixed a mean margarita, it tasted so good we had two. The fresh Mahi was excellent. The best part was getting to meet the owner of the... More

Recently we (wife and I) were on a cruise aboard the Carnival Freedom which included a stop in Roatan, Honduras. When looking for possible excursions on TripAdvisor, I found the Paya Bay Resort which happened to offer a day pass for cruise visitors. I emailed the resort and promptly received a reply from Michelle in the reservations department who said... More

The hotel staff and owners go out of their way to be accommodating. The resort is second generation family owned so there is pride in everything they do. It is on the opposite side of the island than the tourist shops but that is as not a problem for us. A couple of restaurants near for variety if you feel... More
