I stayed at Royal Playa for a week of diving. The journey from the Roatan airport to Royal Playa is absolutely worth the trek. If you are looking to get away from crowds, noise and technology, Royal Playa is THE place for you. The eco-resort doesn't need the frills of modern tourism as the surrounding landscape speaks for itself. The... More

i was looking for a small private resort where we wouldn't get lost in the crowd either above or below the water. I found that and so much more on the east end of Roatan. Royal Playa is a small private resort where you feel like you are part of the family. Here you are treated to one of 5... More

I stayed at Royal Playa for about a week while researching a book on the history of Roatan and a pirate captive who lived in the area as a castaway. This is a beautiful, peaceful, remote spot -- well worth the journey. Great for diving, hiking, kayaking, exploring, reading.

I went here with a group of friends to wrap up certification so this was my first open water dive. And now I am completely spoiled! The diving was amazing! Tons to see, we had 100+ ft visibility, water was nice and warm. I have yet to dive somewhere I enjoyed more (San Carlos Mexico and Royal Davui Fiji). The... More

Royal Playa was phenomenal. This resort is located far away from the "touristy" side of Roatan. The diving was beautiful, and the best part was not having to worry about other divers from other boats. There was no schedule for the day. We dove when we felt like it, and there was no restrictions on the diving. The staff was... More

I've returned once again from diving the island of Roatan. Royal Playa resort is a beautiful property set apart from the rest of the island's dive facilities because it is located on the east side of the island well away from the rest. It is accessed by boat only. We got to dive the east end walls of the island... More

The resort is under new ownership and they have done an incredible job - with much more to come in the future. The staff is wonderful. Eloise cooks incredible meals and even if you like to cook you will want to bring her home with you. The rooms are clean and recently refurbished and redecorated. The view is spectacular and...

From the moment I landed in Roatan, I was made to feel as though I was part of the Royal Playa family. I was treated with courtesy and a friendly island manner. I was allowed to do whatever I wanted and if it meant not getting up for early morning breakfast, then so be it. There were plenty of activities... More

We stayed at Royal Playa for 14 days and had an incredible time. One of the best vacations ever. There is so much to write about this place. I will start with the most important: the people. Everyone at Royal Playa was not only an employee but quickly became good friends. Randy, Mr. T - our scuba diving buddy, Eloise,... More
