The island is gorgeous and the people are friendly! The monkeys will come and visit you near your room to steal some food from you after you eat breakfast. The iguanas, geese, peacocks, goats, deer and other animals are fun to look at and stay out of your way! The place is hot and the water is warm even in... More

Great week at Fantasy Island. I'm a local who wanted to become more comfortable in the water with repetitive dives while learning about dive sites near FI and CCV, which is about 3 nautical miles west of home (Caribe Pointe Bight). I did 15 dives and MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Had a fantastic time. No dishes, No housework…dive - sleep - eat!... More

Our small group, myself, wife and another married couple were greatly surprised by the wonderful food (as we had read some negitive reviews) and the service. We enjoyed the diving with Derry (Dive Master) and the captain. I managed to log 21 dives with a spectacular night dive that included 7 Octapuss among other abundant creatures. My wife managed to...

We have been to Fantasy Island four times this year. The unfortunate result of the current political situation is that few tourists are venturing into Honduras, creating a tremendous hardship for the island of Roatan, which relies heavily on tourism. There are no problems in Roatan. In fact, this is the best possible time to visit! There are no crowds... More

I love diving in Roatan and enjoy both the north and south sides of the island for different reasons. Fantasy Island is on the south side and the diving consists of beautiful coral walls and lots of seahorses (I saw 8 on my last visit in October 2009) but not a lot of big fish. The diving is, however, relatively... More

The Island of Roatan is like a different country from mainland Honduras as far as any political unrest or trouble goes. Everything was the same as it has always been for years. The food was very good , all you can eat buffet with a wide selection every day every meal. For diving we had good visability, calm seas and... More

I went on this trip with my bf and two other couples, 3 of whom were divers and we went on this trip as it was a great dive spot/vacation. The hotel has a complimentary airport shuttle that took us directly from the very small airport to the resort. This is not a 5-star hotel by any means, it is... More

Our first stay at Fantasy was in 1991 and we have gone back over the years. My husband and I have been to many other dive resorts including two others on Roatan. Here are some of the reasons we keep returning to Fantasy: The south side of Roatan has beautiful steep walls - unlike the West End and North side.... More

For those of you who keep up with these reviews you will know that most as negative at best. I've been to FI a couple of times, the latest Oct 16 - 25. If you want the luxury of a hilton, GO TO A HILTON. Fantasy Island is geared to the American Diver, and the Central American tourista, as such... More
