I have been to Bananarama three times. It is a wonderful vacation spot and has a great dive shop as well. The staff is amazing and we feel like we are visiting family when we arrive. Carolina is a gem. My only complaint is if you stay near the Thirsty Turtle you will have some terrible Karaoke nights and loud... More

This resort was great every night they had some kind of attracton goig on. The staff were great most treated you like family! Dishon was our waiter most of the time and I couldn't say enough good things about him. I never went thirsty or hungry! I felt like I was leaving family by the end of the trip!

Awesome hotel on the best beach, the hotel staff was extremely nice and helpful. Carolina was super nice every morning greeting us with a smile, food was not that great but everything else was awesome I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Oh and no tv but it wasn't missed.

My husband and I just returned from our second trip to Roatan and Bananarama. We can't say enough great compliments about the dive shop and staff at Bananarama. Carolina, Adolfo and the rest of the staff are the BEST at the Thirsty Turtle! They make you feel welcome and truly make your experience at Bananarama a memorable one! Marco and... More

We've been to Roatan a few times with the cruise ship but we had to go for a longer stay to really see Roatan, this time we went for 7 days and I'm glad we did. BananaRama was our choice and we were not disappointed. We arrived early and Denise told us about an hour wait as they were cleaning... More

Bananarama was such a delight, every morning waking up to a beautiful sunset, with breakfast cooking below. Our days were long, spent lounging in the hot ocean breeze or snorkeling in the cool carribean sea. With wonderful drink specials, Dishon, our waiter couldn't have been more helpful. He was knowledgeable about the island and always had great insight into how... More

Blaine, Dishon is an amazing server... I am really happy you were able to be served by him! Bananarama is not for everyone. We greatly appreciate the time you have taken to do the research prior to your arrival and for sharing your experience here with us and future guests. We love our staff, facilities and friends:) We look forward... More

This restaurant was fantastic. We stayed elsewhere but walked here on the beach every night for some great food. Met the owners and father, just really great hosts and provided a great gathering place for people. Definitely a 5 star kind of place. Thirsty Turtle bar was awesome owner gave us an umbrella one night when it was pouring and... More

Funtimenow, We are a smaller family/friend owned and operated resort. We are not part of a huge chain...some of our guests love this and some don't. We really dont have the sterilized concrete sort of feel, but we do offer a true local vibe for those who are looking to see what Roatan is really about. We do acknowledge that... More

The resort was very nice. We researched before we came so knew what to expect. A nice rustic, comfortable and clean place to stay right on the beach. Unfortunately our timing was off. We went during Semana Santa which would have been fine except for the LOUD music playing at the Mayan Princess resort down the beach. We did our... More

Seas0nedTraveler4, Yes Holy week or Easter week should be avoided if you are coming down for our normal caribbean vibe... the weekend is transformed into party central and many of our neighbors embrace the Holy week, Easter week or Semana Santa spirit until 2, 3 or 4am which can come as a huge surprise. My favorite times to come to... More

I stayed at Bananarama from June 14-21 2014 and I had an awesome time. Its a nice laid back resort with a great environment. This place pretty much has everything you need.
