We just returned home to 5' of snow but that's ok... After a week at Bananarama and all the warm and wonderful memories we can't feel the cold. A deep and sincere thank you to Mark and Joanie for being the perfect hosts. Your advice and care to all the details involved in an island destination wedding made our day... More

I just got back from a group vacation in Roatan. We've stayed at the Bananarama Resort before and did again this trip. Bananarama isn't the most expensive resort but it’s the only one I’ll stay at. No homogenized building and rooms there, you actually feel like you are in the Caribbean. They have fun activities every night in the bar/restaurant... More

We spent 5 nights at Bananarama and have nothing but great things to say about our stay. The staff is friendly and accomodating, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and a beach bar and restaurant with reasonably priced food and drinks is just steps from your room. The onsite activities center and dive center provide quick and easy access to... More

This is a great little resort. Everyone who works there was incredibly friendly. From the airport pickup (Jeffery Johnson to the waitstaff, Albert and Wilson to the beach help, Johnson) - all amazing. The rooms are very basic and could use a little updating but I really didn't stay here for the room - I stayed for the beach and... More

Our group of 9 stopped here on a cruise ship visit. We had reserved in advance through a tour company and got a scenic van ride to and from. The resort is nice, the beach was busy, but we got some lounge chairs and played in the water while a couple of us went on a snorkeling excursion. We had... More

We just got back from 11 nights at Banarama in wonderful West Bay, Roatan and we both agree this was our best trip ever. Quaint hotel that was small, great friendly staff, outstanding food, amazing diving, superb beach, and like-minded travelers to share our time and visit with. Bananarama is perfectly located in the beach "town" of West Bay. Stephen... More

Last review of this property I titled "hope to return soon" Loved this property for the same reasons as we did last time! Great management and staff, Mark, Sandra, Derry, "driver" Steven, Hector and Edison, just to name a few. Great food, drinks, and atmosphere at the Thirsty Turtle. We also ate one night at the Vintage Pearl and had... More

When in Roatan Honduras for the day from the cruise ship West Bay Beach is where we go and Bananarama is where we base ourselves while we are there. It is a really nice and pretty beach with it's white sand and gorgeous blue water. It has all the amenities you could want. Diving, snorkeling, parasailing, paddle boarding and diverse... More

We had a great morning at Bananarama! We booked this on our own not through our cruiseline. They picked us up at the Port and took us to their resort. We got our own beach chairs and were able to lounge in the sun. We had some local beers at the bar. The only thing we did not enjoy was... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights after a mission trip on the main land almost four years ago. Roatan is much more organized and a lot safer than the rest of Honduras. The beach at West Bay is unreal. The only things that remind you that you are not dreaming are the sand flies and the swarms... More
