Xbalanque is a gem of a place. I hesitate to write anything about it, honestly, so that I can covet it and keep it all to myself! My husband, Brad, and I traveled to Roatan for my 40th birthday, and one of the main reasons I decided upon the island was because of what I had seen of Xbalanque (online).... More

I stayed at Xbalanque with my husband and two other couples and it was our first trip to Honduras. We were looking for a relaxing getaway with great beaches and Xbalanque provided everything we were looking for. The rooms were spacious and modern and we had our own kitchen and washer/dryer. It was like we had our own little apartment... More

I don't know where to begin. The resort, the staff, the food, the rooms, the beach...it is all incredible. Love that it is away from the tourist craziness but within walking distance to either West End or West Bay. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Loved the beach and having your own private space away from the chaos. The resort... More
