From the amazing food from chef Ben, to the staff, and the facility, this place is a little slice of paradise. This was our third trip to Roatan, but first time here. This will be our only place to stay on future trips.

Our family spent a week at Xbalanque in August and loved it. It is evident where ever you look that Patsy, the charming owner/manager, has a talent for and background in design. The details never ceased to surprise me and please my eye. Given the limits of construction options on an island off Honduras, this is really an amazing property.... More

What an amazingly beautiful archetecural design and relaxing resort. Patsy was not there while we were there, but was very helpful and answered all questions and made sure we were in good care! Marco picked us up and took us directly to the grocery to stock up on some items for the week. We were then greeted by Rebecca and... More

I wish my experience in Honduras was better than it was. We flew into San Pedro in one of the worst storms that they had experienced in a long time. We arrived at the airport only to find out the island airports were closed and we would have to stay in San Pedro until they re-opened. Safety was my number... More

It was a beautiful wedding and I enjoyed meeting everyone. Roatan is a special place for weddings and events. It would truly be paradise without the mosquitos. Protection is a must. I hope that you will return in the near future. Thank you for being our guest. More

My husband and I spent 10 days @ the beautiful architectural zen gem with a group of friends all grouped at the resort for a destination wedding. There are several housing options on the property as well as a fitness center, bar & pool area and lounge with upper deck and fireplace. The resort is a quick boat ride to... More

We get away for our birthdays and found Xbalanque which looked amazingly modern and chic. After reading all the great reviews, we decided to book a room. We were picked up from the airport and popped over to the grocery store for supplies (they will do that for you if you give them a list) but being a dietitian, I... More

My boyfriend and I stayed one week at Xbalanque in August, 2014. The experience was exceptional & I can't wait to return. The main building, bar and dining area (and hammocks, lounge chairs & private dock) are right on the beach. Though both West End and West Bay are a short beach walk away, you'll feel like you're on a... More

It was such a pleasure having you at Xbalanque. I am so glad I was there to meet you and share some time together; cooking and chess lessons. Xbalanque is a magical place and seems to attract talented people. I hope to see you again in the near future. More

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary with 10 wonderful days spent at Xbalanque. The property itself is amazingly beautiful, but what sets the resort apart is the attention to detail and the incredibly gracious service provided by Patsy, the owner, and her staff. Because the resort is small, everyone knows and addresses you by name. We liked the... More

This is a lovely hotel all the way around. Whether looking at the setting, the architecture, the staff, the service or the amenities. Our family spent a week at Xbalanque this past week and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was a little nervous about travel to Honduras as our children (8, 8, 7) are still young and maybe I was pushing...
