“Private Retreat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This place is AWESOME!!! It was my favorite excursion!! We took a a cab out there and just bought the day pass no lunch, drinks or use of kayaks but it was only $20 so with a $10 cab ride it was also the best deal!! Loved the little cabana's out in the water and the small petting zoo with spider monkeys you can actually play with!!!! They're also building a jaguar cage!

It started with a Caribbean Dream for our family..... And then a spiritual awakening that "anything worthwhile is truly meant to be shared" !

We are always in the process of improving adding attractions and better organizing our facilities and operation for the benefit and enjoyment of our visiting guests....

“Deserves 10 Stars!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I almost don't want to write a review for fear that this gem will become spoiled by masses of people. I will start by begging Larissa and Moshi to PLEASE keep doing things the way you are doing them!! Everything about Little French Key is perfect.

We got off our cruise shipped and walked off the pier...there were several taxi/excursion vendors waiting there and one asked if he could help us. We said we were looking for the LFK van and he pointed us to the right and up and over a hill. It was a short walk and well worth it. Dave and Larry were there waiting with a sign just as the confirmation email from Larissa had said. We went with Dave to the air-conditioned van and off we went for the short ride to paradise.

Once there we did have to wait a few minutes BUT it was 8am ship time so it was 6am island time and they were working around our schedule so no biggie at all. After paying we boarded a pontoon boat and headed to the island (2-3 min. ride).

The island is unbelievable!!! Everything is top notch - from the chairs on the dock to the tables in the water, the kayaks, the platform to jump off off, the little private areas set up throughout the whole place...you can just tell that a lot of thought and love went into this place.

We swam for a while in the most gorgeous water you could ever imaging. There were some rocky areas in the water but nothing major...bring water shoes if you are prone to complaining about such things:) Snorkeling was great...we saw quite a few fish, some coral, and my son found a conch (we put him back).

We then headed to see the monkeys. OMG!!! They are so stinking cute!!! We must have spent at least an hour there. Matthew is amazing!! He told us all about each monkey and helped us get to know them. You can tell he loves his job and his enthusiasm is contagious.

Lunch was awesome (seriously people - I am not making this stuff up!!!). We had lobster, steak, shrimp, chicken, rice/beans, homemade pico and slaw...even my picky son couldn't deny how good everything was. Kudos to the chefs!!!!

I also have to give a shout out to Ronal (hope I spelled it right). I got to talking to him about the island and the culture and he was a wealth of knowledge and SO SO friendly.

We had to be back to the ship by 3 (1pm island time) and I seriously wanted to cry when I was leaving. I should add that we were a party of 4 - me, my husband and our 2 kids (14 and 11). Every one of us agreed that this was by far the best place we have been yet. We are even planning on vacationing in Roatan next year for a week and we will certainly be back to Little French Key.

“This place is amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We had a great time in this gorgeous tropical paradise! They sent a driver to get us. (We were a bit confused as to where to go once we got off the ship. As you come through go left - not to Mahogany Beach. You'll see people standing under the awning lining up for excursions to meet their driver but you must walk up and over the hill to your left. You'll walk a ways but you'll eventually see a long line of drivers. They'll be there). Our driver was so kind and informative. My husband wants to go back and hunt iguanas with him. :-)

LFK was so beautiful. There were chairs in and out of the water for you. We kayaked around a couple of islands. Then went back for lunch then snorkeling. We were the only 2 going out so we had a private excursion. We loved the reef and our guide was so patient with me as I tried to get the hang of it again. He even swam back to the boat for my life jacket. He took us to see lobsters and we did. Nice!

The meal was good with a portion of several meats. I'm a big fan of those yucca chips. First time for those. Everything was so nice and beautiful and the owners were especially kind and accommodating. I highly recommend LFK to anyone wanting a relaxing day in paradise. Thanks for a great time!

“Paradise Found”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

If someone ask me to describe "Paradise" in three words, I would simply say........"Little French Key". My family spent April 17, 2013 on the island and were continually amazed at the beauty of the Key and the hospility of the owners. The entire experience was excellent from relaxation at the beaches, the private zoo, snorkling in the cove to the food and bar. We could not believe the friendliness of the staff and owners as they shared the history of building this paradise and how special it was to them. We are already planning another visit to Roatan with "Little French Key" as the primary purpose and daily destination. Yep, we finally found "Paradise". The Bakers & Johnsons, Birmingham, AL.
