I went here for a wedding back in April along with my girlfriend. I have never been to Roatan before and found it a very beautiful place with great food and very nice people. Here are some of my thoughts on it all:
The resort is very pretty in a very scenic area with mountainous jungle behind it and smaller resorts on either side.
I would highly recommend this for anyone who likes diving and or relaxing. It's a quiet resort with a very laid back feel. As someone who typically likes to party on vacation this resort doesn't quite cater to that. April is a slow time for tourism in Roatan. Along with the fact that a large percent of the resort's rooms are actually owned by condo owners, there are sometimes you can feel like you're the only ones there. It's not a bad thing it can be pretty cool, just don't expect a party atmosphere.
I found the local beach vendors could be annoying at times as there were quite a few on the beach during the day pestering you to buy their items. The security guards at the resort were always nearby to keep the vendors away if they thought you wanted them to leave you alone. However a couple times I was woken up by the more aggressive sellers.
POOL / BEACH
One of the nicest pools I've ever been in at a resort. It's very large and doesn't have a deep end. The beach is very pretty with crystal clear water. You can walk a long ways in either direction down the beach and it's gorgeous the whole way. The only complaints I have for the beach is there can be a lot of tiny sand bugs. I think they are fleas but I'm not certain, they don't appear to bite at least not during the day. At dusk/early night I highly suggest bug spray if you're hanging around the beach as something, fleas or mosquitos likes to get bitey. Bug spray makes it all good. Be careful that any bags or towels you bring to the beach aren't dragged back with you to your room. I had a mini infestation of the tiny buggers in my shaving kit. I can't be certain how they got there but my guess is from the beach, after some airing out on the balcony they were all gone.
We upgraded for the extra 20 or 40 bucks for the villa rooms and it was the best decision ever. I have never stayed in such a beautiful, enormous room, it was hard to find use for it all. We had two huge balconies, two huge bedrooms, with two huge king size beds, two nice bathrooms, a living room, a kitchen with dishwasher, oven, fridge, washer and dryer machine. We didn't find much use for the kitchen in the end as it is an all inclusive resort. One disappointment was unlike a lot of resorts I've stayed at the fridge is not stocked with alcohol or bottled water. You're encouraged to drink from their filtered water from the taps.
FOOD / DRINK
Food was very, very good but there is a more limited selection to choose from than larger resorts offer. Drinks were good and I found myself really enjoying their local beers. Mixed drinks you must select from a list of choices. They do the majority of standard concoctions but I found there were a few I couldn't order unless I paid for them.
Very friendly and welcoming. Can't say a bad thing about them. I accidentally left my dive knife behind at the resort and thought it was as good as gone. I sent the resort an email only to have the GM Rick respond that they had found it! Rick immediately mailed me my knife right to my door step. Rick definitely went the extra mile for me and I can't say enough kind things about how much this meant to me. Thanks!!!
SNORKELLING / SCUBA DIVING
I'm a scuba diver and I found the diving to be quite good even just off the shore of the resort. Lots of beautiful eels, turtles, rays and reefs to see. The beach ends a short walk down the way one way where a cliff extends out into the ocean. There is some great snorkelling to do right there and lots of marine life to sea.
We took a bus trip across the island that took us to a butterfly conservatory, Iguana farm, some tourist hot spots and an a paradise island for dinner. I highly recommend the excursion, bring your camera as there is a lot of beautiful amazing things to see on it.
Along with my girlfriend we also went to Anthony's key to swim with the dolphins. I have never done it before as I'm usually apprehensive for how these types of places treat their dolphins. After doing some research on it and now having had a chance to go there myself It is very impressive. It's in a pen in the ocean with a ton of space and a lot of dolphins. If ever the dolphins wanted to get out it is an easy jump for them into the ocean.
They take very good care of the dolphins. It's a pricey event, they have a few options to choose from where you can meet the dolphins and learn about them. For extra you can snorkel with them and for even more you can be a trainer for a day with them. If you're going to take the trek there I highly suggest you splurge the extra bucks to swim with the dolphins the meet and greet is nice but short and not nearly as full filling as swimming along side them. It was a truly great experience.
Bring bug spray if you are going to hang around the beach at dusk/night.

It was also a great experience for our team to have hosted you and your girlfriend on your vacation adventure. I apologize for the beach vendors and its something we are working on very diligently with local authorities.
