W read the reviews and it looks like people are happy with Bananarama. I write this as I lay in bed at Bananarama sweating because the air conditioner hasn't worked right since we got here yesterday. They must have it on some kind of señor and it goes off every couple of hours. Nothing like waking up sweating. Also the... More

We only went as part of a cruise excursion, but love it and plan on going back next year to stay for a week. The beach and water were beautiful. Security was all over and never more than 50ft away. They were not just there. They were there doing a job and took it seriously.

This is my second time to visit Roatan in 2 years and it's just not enough. I am an avid diver and dive all around the world. I dive with all kinds of dive shops everywhere. I can say with CONFIDENCE that diving with Bananarama has been the best dive experience. I would suggest to not be fooled by other... More

Didn't stay at Banarama but my group dove with them for a week. The entire shop was friendly and accommodating! Zoe was a patient and fun dive master, took us to amazing spots. Everyone had nothing but great things to say about our experience! Mariela and Marco were fantastic in the front office with organizing before we arrived. I also... More

I visited Banarama with a group through Victor Bodden Tours while on a cruise with Royal Caribbean. Booking with Victor included access to his monkey exhibit and transportation to the beach. At $30/person for everything I had low expectations for the beach portion but was really impressed. It's relaxing, the water is beautiful, and the sand is well maintained. We... More

This was our third time at BBR. Everything went very smooth. Our flight, the transfers with Steven Hamilton and his welcoming smile and first class, courteous service, and check-in! Sadly, on our fourth day we received word from back home that a close and dear family member had passed away. We would like to thank the Bananarama management and staff... More

We have visited this Bananarama twice now while touring with Rony Tours. It's hard to beat the cost of $10/pp, which gives you access to the beach in West Bay (the best snorkeling in the Caribbean, in my opinion), their facilities (restroom and showers) and either a beach chair or a drink. Great music playing, and lunch served right on... More

A resort small enough that the staff remembers your name and gives you the personal attention that we all like but large enough to have everything you need to enjoy a week of relaxation, diving, snorkeling, and watching people. My wife and I stayed in one of the Pearl's rooms. The queen bed was comfortable. The A/C worked well. The... More

We were welcomed back with lots of hugs!!!! Carolina, Albert, Victor and Wilson.....you all make us feel so welcome and make our stay extra-special. We ate all our meals there at the Thirsty Turtle...breakfast... More

July 2013 - The beach rules!! Front Desk Staff, Bartenders & Wait Staff -awesome! The room I initially stayed in looked suitable, however, upon my return that night I discovered baby cockroaches coming out of the shower drain which disrupted my whole state of being - my relaxing fun day immediately decapitated. I killed a bunch of those suckers, washed... More
