My wife and I were on a cruise that stopped in Roatan. Our cabin steward was from Roatan and he suggested we visit Bananarama for the day. We took a 30 minute taxi ride from the port and after arriving, we paid $10 for use of the facilities, which included the use of a beach chair. Snorkel gear was available for another $15, which I rented and had a great time snorkeling the reef, which is about a five minute walk down the beach from Bananarama. The beach itself is beautiful and the properties along the beach are really well kept. Unfortunately, the beach itself isn't very wide, which means that it gets crowded quite easily. The vendors are also a downfall, as you are constantly being asked if you want a massage, or to buy a pair of sunglasses, or seashells, etc. As long as you don't mind being bugged every couple of minutes, it's not so bad. Anyhow, aside from using their shower and bathroom facilities, we didn't spend much time on the grounds, as we were on the beach and swimming. It seems like it would be a nice place to stay and security made it's presence felt, even though it didn't feel unsafe.
