“Amazing. Great place, great food, great people.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We travelled to Roatan between January 7th-14th 2013. We stayed in a great hotel in West Bay.... but had I known about this gem before booking I would have rented a place closer to the Little French Key and gone to their island paradise everyday. The beach in West Bay (though beautiful) is FAR too crowded. We decided to get away from the beach vendors and obnoxious tourists one day and chose the Little French Key. Upon arrival at the dock, the owner of the island showed up by boat only to inform us that they were out of water and our stay would not be optimal if we decided to go anyways (no potable water acces, therefore no food, drinks, showers, etc). The owner was extremely appologetic and offered to send us to the Parrot Tree Resort nearby (also a very beautiful place) since we had travelled almost an hour by bus and did not want to let the rest of the day get away from us. She also told us that she would be happy to receive us the following day and would make it up to us with a free snorkel excursion. All I can say about our next day there is: WOW. Expectations definitely exceeded. The place is simply gorgeous. The snorkeling was breathtaking. The lunch was delicious. The staff was kind and friendly. And Leo was very helpful and a true gentleman (I hope you got your new camera!!). This was definitely the most beautiful place I have ever been in any of my travels down south and I can't wait to visit again :)

“One of my favorite places on Earth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Little French Key.... nothing short of amazing.. Our family was 5 of probably 10 people on this little island.. This literally was the best day of our trip. You could literally not see anyone if you wanted.. The water is crystal clear.. The sand was just like powdered sugar. The workers would come by and ask if we wanted drinks...
We will travel back to Honduras periodically throughout our travels.

“Favorite Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We were getting ready to travel on Carnival Cruise lines last month. Having cruised before, I was really wanting to try some "non-cruise" excursions to get away from the crowds. One of our stops was in Roatan so when I saw Little French Key on Trip Advisor and read the excellent reviews we decided to make reservations with them before we left.
So glad we did!!
What a wonderful spot, great staff, and great way to spend a day. We had a large group of about 15 people aging from 15 months to 70 and everyone loved it. There were the bird and monkey cages that the toddler couldn't get enough of and beautiful sandy beach areas to lay out or swim. Our teens/college age kids spent much of the afternoon jumping off the upper-story deck into the water which they loved.
I could go on and on but basically it was everyone's favorite stop. Thank you for the attentive & friendly service, wonderful food (loved those yucca fries!) and fun day. Hopefully we'll be able to come back some day!!

“Paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We booked the Little French Key based on the reviews we read prior to our cruise and we weren't disappointed. We all agree this was the best part of our cruise by far! The island is owned and operated by a very hospitality conscientious family. The island is immaculate - the sand was cleaned/raked of debris, the bathrooms (plumbed, not outhouses) were clean and well maintained and all of the "toys" were in good repair. As soon as we arrived, Leo (the greatest 13 year old tour guide ever) showed us around the island and introduced us to the parrots, macaws and monkeys. We staked our claim on some lounge chairs near the bar, but that wasn't necessary as the staff wait on you hand and foot no matter where you lounge - and there is plenty of space. No need to walk to the bar or ask for food - it was brought to you. And the food was fabulous - beef tenderloin, lobster, prawns, curry chicken, beans and rice and delicious salsa and chips! We took the leap from the platform bar and floated on the water - my husband and brother-in-law played a little bocce. It all ended too soon! The only thing I would do different on my next visit (yes, we will be back!) is to pass on the snorkeling boat - the boat trip only takes you around the corner and there wasn't much to see. Otherwise, I would highly recommend a visit to the Little French Key!
