Fabulous place. Very tropical with basic amenities. Awesome beach access. We bought a groupon for this place and the breakfast was included for every day. There is a fire dance and crab race on the weekend. Also there are karaoke nights at the restaurant in this resort. The dive shop is one of the oldest and well equipped. Our groupon... More

If I could give it 0 stars I would. Worst service ever.. So we got to West Bay at 11am, there were these guys selling their activities in the cost of the beach.. After dealing with all of them we decided to go parasailing which was $65 each one (OVERPRICED FOR ONLY 10 MINUTES) then we went and made 10... More

We visited the beach in April. We stayed for a few days just before Easter week and prebooked for 4 nights. Beachside double room $170 per night. At that price we had high hopes that this place would be quite beautiful. Well we were quite wrong it turns out. Basically the room is of a quality you might expect of... More

I came here with my wife for a 4 day getaway from our kids while they were with the grandparents in Guatemala. We loved it here and someday will come back with the kids. The resort was nice and cozy. The service was great, everyone was so friendly. They have a good amount of space on the beach with nice... More

My husband and I just got back from staying a week at Banarama (technically we were on the Island Pearl in a beachside two story bungalow), and it was amazing! I was so impressed with the quality of staff, as well as the quantity of staff. There was lots of security, and always someone available to answer questions, get you... More

Thank you for taking the time to give such a detailed review. Island Pearl is next to Bananarama and guests at the Pearl do have access Bananarama's amenities:) I will follow up with the reception manager to see what is going on and correct the problems you have experienced. Most of our guests have reported very positive comments on the... More

The weather was spectacular, every day was sunny and in the mid to upper 80's. the resport is run by Jeff who also lives there and is a hands on manager from about 6a to 8p daily. I love spending lunch and evenings at the Thirsty Turtle... More

We are looking forward to your 13th visit soon! It is crazy to think that Bananarama is the oldest operating resort on the beach... We have seen a lot of changes through the years and are committed to keeping our resort with a caribbean rustic type of feel. We love our staff and the authentic caribbean vibe that they bring...

So I haven't been to too many tropical vacations, but this one will be very hard to beat. I was a little nervous at first by wondering what the rustic experience would be, but it turned out to be the perfect experience. I stayed in an efficiency, which was perfect for a single traveler. It had a great view of... More

I stayed here with my wife and our two college kids. The property is literally on the beach and West Bay has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. That is a huge plus. The rooms were fine. My son slept on a futon and he reported it to be uncomfortable. The dive shop was great and Marcos... More

I feel like i have stayed at a completely different resort from the rest of the reviewers! Our experience at Bananarama was anything but pleasant. Let me start by saying that they are not a five star hotel, nor do they claim to be. They advertise clean and affordable rooms with great service and that is what we expected. Unfortunately,... More
