Went on a dive vacation with another couple. The resort is nice, private and quiet. The beach is private and beautiful. This resort is really geared more for divers. There is not much for non divers to do at the resort. The dive operation located on the property ( Subway ) was good however the dive boat provided for us did not offer any shade and barely fit the four divers, tanks and the dive master and boat captain. It was great having our own boat but would have preferred a bit more room and a bit of shade. Both the dive master and boat captain were very nice and helpful. The diving itself is not spectacular. Little marine life on all the divers.
The biting sand fleas, no-see-ums were very bad. It did not matter if we were at the pool or on the beach. I have been to Roatan before, stayed at a different resort and the biting insects were just as bad. So I do not blame Turquoise Bay Resort.
The food was good but would have liked to have more local dishes served. I can eat French fries at home. The staff was great, very nice, fun and friendly. I have no complaints with Turquoise Bay resort.
Not sure I would go to Roatan again mainly because of the biting fleas and because I was not impressed with the diving.
