You've already read several reviews so I'll briefly add the service is spectacular, the location is hard to beat, the food is excellent, the service is terrific, the diving is pristine, the weather can be temperamental, and did I mention the service is amazing? I've done numerous diveaboards in numerous places and have always loved them. I've stayed in several Four Seasons, Ritz-Carltons, and the like all over the world and have always loved them. The Villa is a combo of the two experiences - great accommodations, food, service, and location meet great and plentiful diving. Was everything perfect? No. Was it almost as good as it could be? Yep. Stop reading reviews and go book your vacay at the Villa. (And if you have a family who wants to enjoy and great resort while you dive, take a look at Clark's Cay.). A HUGE and belated thank you to everyone at the Villa - the mark of a good vacation is when there are tears in my eyes as I leave and that's what your special "good-bye" did to me! See you SOON!

The staff here was amazing - so welcoming and attentive to details. Cecil, the bartender, was always smiling and singing while mixing up his daily special drink creations. The kitchen staff went out of their way to accommodate special dining requests by guests. Jennifer, the manager, truly cares about delivering a great customer experience and was there to assist us at every point in our trip. The location is beautiful and relaxing, with gorgeous views on all sides of the Villa. Most of the resort is high above the sea so be prepared to either climb stairs or use the steep ramp. But no worries about your luggage or gear as they magically are taken care of for you during your entire stay. The staff even does your laundry 3 times during the week - so you can pack light! Diving around the Rock was easy and enjoyable. Raynell, Kenneth and Chele provide full conceirge diving and were great at finding creatures. We saw nurse sharks, toadfish, squid, nudibranchs, octopus, trunk fish and tons of juvenile fish and crabs. Excellent place for macro photography! I highly recommend this place!

Spent the first week of August at Dunbar Rock. Can’t begin to say how enjoyable the entire experience was. Staff couldn’t do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Great diving with Raynel and Manuel. Menu always gave options for food choices and everything we sampled was delicious. As the slogan on their shirt says, “spent time on the rack and can’t wait to go back”! Special thanks to Denis for a wonderful experience!

Dunbar Rock is THE best. The staff knew what you needed before you did. Adela and Sherell put together a beautiful honeymoon dinner for us with so much thought and love. Both ladies, Reba and Cecil were so sweet and made delicious drinks. The food was too die for, stuffed ourselves every day. The diving was incredible, so many things to see. Lots to do on the dives. Reynell is the best dive master we’ve ever dove with and made the dives so much fun. Manuel was amazing, as well. The rock is so unique and just the cozy spot we were looking for. It is picturesque and beautiful. The room was great with a hot tub on the balcony overlooking the gorgeous island of Guanaja! Can’t wait to go back!

The Villa on Dunbar Rock is a wonderful dive resort. The staff is just fantastic with their professionalism and warm, personal attention. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and all rooms have a water view. The food is great and they provide you a few menu options for every meal. The dive crew is very attentive and the diving was very enjoyable with a variety of depth, topography, coral, fish, etc. We definitely plan on going back and would highly recommend this resort to everyone.
