Stayed here 3/3/14-3/10/14 with a groupon, the villa was more than expected, with two bedrooms, the lower bedroom in the two villas we stayed in had two twin beds, and the master was upstairs with a queen bed. I was worried staying here about the water and needing to buy filtered water. To my pleasant surprise we had a poland... More

Stayed here with a group of 6 - two children (4 & 6) for a week. We have room #27 and LOVED it. The villa is but a stones throw from everything you need, for example all of 20 seconds walk to the beach, 30 seconds the bar and restaurant. We had NO problems with noise, sand fleas or anything...

We stayed at the Island Pearl for four nights in January 2014. It's actually part of the Bananarama complex. The management is very accommodating and desires its guests to be happy and satisfied. The villas are air conditioned (helpful in this humid hot climate), spacious, clean and comfortable. Queen bedroom upstairs was lovely. Off the bedroom was a screened porch... More

We just got back from 5 days/4 nights in Villa 27, and are already planning and looking forward to going back!! Start with the Villa, #27. Nice, clean, and cozy, for what little time you should be spending inside, and was way above our expectations! Downstairs, a decent sized kitchen/dining area, a bedroom with 2 twin beds, and the bathroom/shower... More

We got to stay in the Island Pearl side of Bananarama for 1 night of our trip - wish we could have stayed here the entire time! It was so rustic, beautiful, and relaxing. We got to stay in #25 - the one right on the beach. Such a gorgeous view that you can see from the 2nd story master... More

The Island pearl is in a great location on a very nice beach. There is a lovely courtyard surrounded by the accommodations which is really great when the beach gets crowded by cruise ship people. We stayed in units 29 and 26. The owners villa (29) is really spacious and comfortable. Only negative was a cabbage smell which seemed to... More

Thank you for your time to write such a great detailed review. I am not aware of any cabbage or sourkraut that is being made at the Vintage Pearl, but I will check into in and figure out what it is! Room 25 and 27 are the quietest of the 4 Villas. Unit number 29 is my favorite for my... More

Just back from Banarama/Island Pearl. We stayed in villa #27 which is one of the beachfront houses. Not directly on the beach but we still had a good view of the beach on the porch. We were next to the Island Pearl restaurant but that was never a problem. The whole time Denise and Bianca took great care of us.... More

Bill, Thank you for sharing your experience. We have tried to keep Island Pearl as rustic as possible while increasing a number of our guests requests such as chilled water dispensers, quiet AC's and ceiling fans on the decks overlooking the ocean. The best part most guests enjoy is that all our Villas have a great beach view and are... More

Island Pearl is a smaller, quieter part of Bananarama, that is authentic while still having modern conveniences of wireless service, purified water in your room and air conditioned rooms. Jeff and Robin made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and made everything from taking the kayaks out to pointing out the most beautiful spots to snorkel, so relaxing... More

First trip to Roatan and we had much debate on where to stay based on all the TripAdvisor reviews. We ended up picking Island Pearl/Banarama, and couldnt have been more satisfied. It's right in the middle of the best beach, and has the best bar scene on this island by far. We ate several meals there, and the food was... More
