Forget the fancy island vacations anywhere else: we're always coming to Roatan from now on. What a beautiful place, and what lovely people. We don't dive, but still chose Bananarama for its proximity to the beach and from what we'd read on TA. I have to say that we were not disappointed at all. The resort is ideally located a... More

We spent a week at Bananarama, with our main goals being scuba certification and beach lounging. We were not disappointed and are planning to go back as soon as possible! Every detail of our trip was attended to and it felt like home by the end of the week - we highly recommend West Bay and Bananarama for everything you... More

Our stay was good. You can’t beat the location, and the bar food is not too bad at all. Once we figured out how to work our air conditioning, and air out our bathroom which smelled like latrine. It wasn’t too bad. Jamie was very good about answering questions and very quick, so that was very nice. The dive shop... More

Bananarama was an amazing place to stay on Roatan. I have been traveling to the mainland of Honduras for 8 years and haven't been able to make it over to the Island until now! I found Bananarama online and emailed the owners. Jamie (one of the owners) emailed be back within a few days and answered all of my questions... More

I am an avid reader and fan of trip advisor so trusted the reviews for Bananarama. What I have learned in the end is that you have to consider the demographics of the reviewers. While my husband and i had a very good time overall, there are things that potential renters need to consider. We booked one learn to dive... More

After lots of research here on TripAdvisor, my boyfriend Malachy and I decided to stay at Bananrama based on the excellent reviews of their diving facilities, their location in West Bay (as opposed to West End) and their dive/hotel packages. I contacted Jaime at Bananarama through their website and received prompt and informative responses. We arranged for a Diver Special... More

After a particularly tough year, we were in dire need of an island fix. Roatan had long been on our short list of unvisited islands. We found Bananarama through its companion site, The Island Pearl. We stayed in one of the beachfront casitas not 30 yards from the azure Caribbean. The casita was a handmade, 2 story, homey, charming, spacious... More

If you are looking for a beachy atmosphere in an unspoiled environment, you'll love Bananarama. We felt like we were in an enchanted forest the whole time! It's as charming as it gets, and the place just makes you feel like all your cares are gone. From the minute you arrive, everybody there makes you feel like family. The ladies... More

I chose Bananarama after reading so many wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. I had challenges: a place that could reasonably accomodate me and my 2 adult children, requiring 3 separate sleeping spaces; a place that could suit the most avid scuba diver while offering myriad attractions for the non-diver; access to a beautiful beach, and perhaps the most amazing snorkeling...

We recently stayed at Bananarama and had an overall positive experience. The setting is beautiful, we were fortunate in having great weather (except the day we left, it was windy and rainy...not a bad day to leave!) and the staff went out of their way to make sure that our stay was pleasant. The few minor issues that we had... More
