Island Pearl is a perfect choice for the family. Over the years, we have stayed in four of the six units at the Island Pearl and they are all wonderful. Charming, comfortable and eclectic are how I would describe them. They are shaded and very private. The amenities are top-notch, especially for the kids. Ample beach chairs, sea kayaks, beach...

We stayed in the cheapest room (#27 ?) here, which was a bit smallish, but clean and comfortable. The room was next to the Vintage Pearl Restaurant, which was actually empty all the time, but we heard the staff from our room, so it is not really secluded. Breakfast, purified water, and canoe usage was included in the price. The... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) spent 10 nights in Villa 27 in early April. Roatan has been on my radar for about 20 years, since I was a backpacker traversing the globe, not a mom with 2 kids and 1 floppy dog. My hope, therefore, was to get that "traveling" vibe while simultaneously enjoying a family vacation... More

Quinranda, Thank you for choosing us to spend your vacation with. We do have that island vibe which some guests love and some are looking for something more sterilized with concrete and huge pool. We really like the hammock on your porch and leave your shoes in your closet kind of feel for vacations and we are really happy you... More

We stayed here for a few days last week. The hotel was very quick and friendly upon check in, and we got several vouchers for free internet as well as a coupon for a free drink at their beach front bar. We stayed in Villa #27 and it was very cosy and clean. There was a water cooler with purified... More

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.
