Even though my husband and I were married here last March, we had no intention of revisiting because we just don't like to go to the same place twice. While backpacking the mainland, we found ourselves hopping the ferry to get over to Bananarama...even if we only had two nights. While the beach is breathtaking (a little disappointing during cruise... More

Our 1st trip out of the u.s.a. couldnt have been better! We stayed a week at the resort and when left felt like we were leaving family. The owner Guy and his staff are the best! Karolina took the best care of the 2 of us . Wilma at the Turtle bar knows how to make a Margarita. The entire... More

This was our 3rd stay at the Bananarama with Guy, Tina and their crew. We were treated very well, with many of the staff recalling us from our past visits. This is a smaller, more personable resort located on the best beach on Roatan, close to the West End. The Banarama owners have been awarded excellence awards for their work... More

We stayed in one of the places right on the beach and loved it. It was very private and quiet and we loved being able to walk right down to the beach. Everything was just a few feet away; the restaurants, the dive shop and the bar! We loved the diving. Check out the numerous dive photos we were able... More

The Staff become like family and friends by the end of your first day. Always going the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied. And we were. Our son's wedding was magical and they surprised us with a special sand sculpture on Sunday night. After only 2 visits, it feels like "home" away from home. Didn't watch tv all... More

My boyfriend and I went for a week in Roatan at the Bananarama and it was great.The hotel is right in front of the beach and you cant take your breakfest everyday looking at the ocean. The service was also very friendly (Caroline was always very attentive with us at the bar), and at the bar you can have good... More

We want to thank the staff at the Bananarama for their very warm and friendly attitutude. It made our stay in Roatan extra special. Louise, Sarah and Denise in the main office were always very cheerful and helpful. Mal at the dive shop made our diving experience very enjoyable and relaxing. The hotel is clean and cozy and perfectly located... More

The resort was exactly what we wanted and more. Everything was beyond convenient, particularly the dive center, which was a few meters from the beach and our rooms. The dive staff made me feel super comfortable given I have only been scuba diving a few times, and I felt like I really fine-tuned some of my skills under their instruction.... More

We stayed at Bananarama for 6 nights. We did 10 total dives and had the best experience yet. Great for beginner and experienced divers a like. Malcomb (head instructor) and his crew are top notch folks with a ton of experience. They are muy profesional! They prepared us for great dives and were very knowledgeable about the sites.

Located on a best beach of the island and right on a middle of it. Simple but good at the bar, with upscale restaurant for dinner on site. Bar plates wrap/sand $7-9, entre $9-15, coctails $5-7, beer $2. Fly is a little annoying. Great dive shop small boats, so your group is no more than 6 people, dives 40-60 min.... More
