We love the Sunday Brunch at Island Pearl. It is really the best we've found on the island so far! Not only is the food fantastic, but the all you can drink champagne is a nice bonus! Great place to just chill and enjoy a Sunday Brunch. Highly recommend.

Highly recommended. If you don't already know, this is an area within Bananarama Dive Resort (took me a while to figure this out as I was researching). We stayed Jan. 17-24 and I’m already trying to figure out how soon we can get back to Island Pearl! I travel for work and tend to be critical of hotels – I... More

I can not add more to the review I already wrote about how much I love this place. It is not for everyone as stated, (see "laid back gem") but it fits our needs to a "t". My husband and son love the diving and say it is the best dive operation they have dove with. (50+ dives). Captain Michael... More

We recently returned from a one week vacation at the Island Pearl. We stayed in room #28. It was a tiny cute room right off the Vintage Pearl restaurant. If you are looking for high class, high end amenities... look else where... BUT.... if you are looking for a chillaxing tropical paradise with the friendliest people you've ever met... then... More

The 3 of us loved the place and could walk to the dice boat. Just a little funky as we like it and we had a room on the beach overlooking the water, but still private. Would recommend for sure and stay again.

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 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
