I lived in Roatan a few years ago, and one of the things I love about the island is that unlike many other places in the Caribbean or Mexico it remains extremely (negatively) unmarked by the industry of tourism despite the progress that has been made to make it more comfortably appealing to vacationers.
The Pristine Bay Resort is a beautiful example of a type of progress with integrity.
My sister and I spent 8 days there and loved it so much we are now talking to our family about buying a villa there.
The villas are so well built with many of the materials which are natural resources of the region.
The Pete Dye golf course is first rate and Eco friendly.
The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and helpful.
We got a tour of the resort and can't wait to go back and see the on site hotel, which will be completed by the end of this month. I'm also looking forward to the marina and the Marina Village which will be built across from the small mangrove island.
The beach is "pristine" and there's even a padi diving club.
The beach club and restaurants are beautiful and well serviced. The food, delicious!
We went about the island almost every day but it was difficult to leave our villa, our patio and our private infinity pool - the luxury was overwhelming!
My favorite spot outside of our infinity pool was the massive infinity pool/lounge area @ the beach club. The view is amazing!
The one recommendation that I have is that you definitely rent a vehicle if you are planning on going about the island.
The resort is in a perfect location but that means it's a 20 - 30 min drive to many of the other popular parts of the island and taxi drivers will over charge you to get around if called to the resort.
This resort is a must if you love tropical mixed with comfort. You can golf, play tennis, football or cricket, snorkel, dive, swim or just simply sit back and relax.
Great for couples, families, conferences, weddings and honeymoons.
We'll be back!!!!
