We just returned from visiting Honduras for the first time and it won’t be our last! Palmetto Bay was a hidden gem. Not only was our house Coconut Grove amazing but the staff of Palmetto Bay made our trip that much better. Stephanie took great care of us while we were there, she recommended lots of places to visit and was very accommodating. The staff of the Cove bar/restaurant were extremely friendly and made sure we had a great experience. Food and drinks were very reasonable and very delicious. Lots of options to choose from. We are already planning our next trip. **PS yes there are bugs (sand fleas and no seums) it was to be expected but we didn’t let it ruin our good time-bring bug spray **

The staff were friendly at the Cove restaurant. The restaurant is not open for breakfast during low session. The food is very expensive and okay for adults but not much selection for children. The bugs are insane! No amount of bug spray helps and most of the villas only have air conditioning in the bedrooms not the main area. So the option is either to keep cool by having the windows and blinds open or to be hot with the windows and blinds closed. Apparently between June and August the sand flies are the worst. We stayed at the tropical garden villa and had a wonderful time in the private pool. We encountered a few problems with the unit. They were eventually solved but it was a few days without hot water in the kitchen, no dryer to dry the wet towels. The beds in the queen rooms are very hard. The bunk beds seemed to have softer mattresses. There was construction across from our villa which was not great if you want a relaxing vacation, we had to put up with machines working from 8-5 some days during the week. The best thing to do is rent a car and explore the island. Look up the cruise schedule and be sure to avoid tourist areas on cruise days. They can be very busy. There is not a lot for kids to do on the island if they don’t want to snorkel or scuba dive. The Daniel Johnson Sloth and Monkey Sanctuary is a must for kids. They were very informative. It is small but the staff really care about the animals.

A wonderful resort of Honduran style homes with a fanatic restaurant (The Cove), beautiful long, white sand, almost deserted beach, a great dive school and friendly bar. The management were responsive to our every need and our favorite thing to do was sway in the hammocks out on the dock under the stars.

5-STARS : Can not say enough about this place! The Grounds alone are Postcard Pretty! Truly what people dream about when they picture the perfect Carribean getaway. The Restaurant was clean, open air with gorgeous full views of the ocean. The Food was exquisite - Try the Potsticker / Dumplings! The Drinks were wonderfully generous and refreshing .. And the Staff went above & beyond! Stephanie in particular went completely out of her way to make our 1st experience with Palmetto Bay one we will Never forget! We will be recommending this place to all!

The staff definitely made our stay at Palmetto Bay amazing as could be. We were so happy to have stayed in this part of the island as it offered a relaxing vibe away from the super touristy areas. Richard, Fabricio, Lisa, & Daniel will make you feel like you're right at home. Daniel did an excellent job of showing us around the island and making sure we had a true Roatan experience.

Thank you for your review & comments. Rental properties in Palmetto Bay are managed by independently owned and operated management companies. The restaurant is also independently owned and operated. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the restaurant but sorry that you were dissatisfied with the condition of your rental home. I will be sure to pass that feedback on to each of those business partners.

Our family stayed for a week in the Coconut Grove house. The house is beautiful and well cared for. We loved having our own pool and being right on the beach. The club house & community pool are just steps away. The staff are ALL amazing. Stephanie was so easy to work with booking the house & she also arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and had a car delivered the next day. Daniel is an AMAZING chef and Richard is the BEST bartender! Everyone talks about West End/Bay but Palmetto Bay is a hidden gem!

We rented a very nice bungalow for a week at Palmetto. The grounds are well kept, great restaurant on site, really nice pool facing the ocean with great views. Stephanie is a really good fixer. We had a car rental waiting for us at the airport and she made everything easy and fun. The bungalow was large and well kept and very close to the ocean, the bar and the dive shop. The fish and seafood at the restaurant was excellent. This is a great alternative to busy the busy west side of the island. Quiet and perfect for families. Thanks for a great stay.

I don’t even know where to start! Our stay at Palmetto Bay was amazing! We stayed in Coconut Grove Cottage for one week. The staff was amazing! Maritza, Stephanie, Richard, Daniel and Lissa are wonderful. The food was amazing. Chef Daniel made us a traditional Honduran dinner, my son had wings and ice cream whenever he wanted. We even needed a new bag for all of the extra stuff we bought. Daniel quickly went to Coxen Hole and came back with a bag for us! We love Roatan so much we bought a condo on the West End! We can’t wait to go back and see our friends at Palmetto Bay!

The food was very expensive, 16$ for a burger and 17$ for a ceviche that wasn’t even very good. When we asked for the check the guy never gave us the bill he just told us the total: 90$! We got 4 drinks 1 burger and 1 ceviche. When we calculated this it came out to about 69$ Plus taxes could be 79$ but not 90$!! When we went up to ask about it they only showed us the receipt for a couple seconds and I noticed they had charged us 11$ tip plus the taxes and 10% tip, (6.9$) we never said we wanted to leave an extra 11$ tip. Anyway don’t go here, the beach is pretty but from what I’ve seen and according to the other reviews it’s not worth it!
