This was booked as a shore excursion from our cruise ship directly through the resort and it started off very bad. When we came off the boat, our transportation was not there. One of the other tour operators was nice enough to call them and let me use her phone. They said that they weren’t aware we were coming even though we booked months in advance. The tour operator said this happens a lot with Fantasy Island. The lady at Fantasy Island said she would send someone immediately but after an hour waiting and another phone call we paid someone else to drive us out to them. Once there, we contacted Velma in the dive shop as we were there for shore diving. She was very nice and offered to not charge us for our second tanks in order to help with the additional transportation cost. She was also very accomodating by guiding us to our lunch and keeping our valuables safe while we dove. The resort grounds and facilities were beautiful and in order. The shore diving was amazing and it was fun not having to follow a dive master around. The lunch was very good native Honduran cuisine in a buffet style. The wild life, especially the monkeys were very entertaining! Lots of beach area around the private lagoon even though we spent our entire day diving. Nice resort overall. But if you book a day package here, just don’t rely on them for transportation. Instead, I would recommend Rony’s Tours.
