Spent a week in February with 6 people in a fabulous house on the beach. The staff was absolutely perfect. They arranged daily travel and excursions for us. The open air restaurant food was great and we loved the little bar and bartenders for happy hours. We took a day trip on a Catamaran that catered to every need. If you fish, snorkel or dive, arrangements can be made to leave right from the resort. i do not usually leave comments but this was one of the best trips. Also recomment a trip to the brewerey right outside the complex. Walking distance and very fun!

Pool and beach. Gazebo in the ocean. Great restaurant. We liked it so much we are going back again today. Very close to brewery. Safe because there is a gate . You will need a car or ride. It is a drive from West End or West Bay.

We went to Roatan on a cruise and git a day pass for 10 USD to enjoy the facilities. Everything looks clean and there were barely any people around so it was very relaxing. We did encounter sand fleas at the beach though, so use the loungers and don‘t sit or lay in the sand.

Just returned from Palmetto Bay holiday vacation. We wanted a quiet place to call our own and we found it with some added bonuses. Palmetto Bay is a large tropical property of vacation homes, so we had our own villa (house). Well maintained and completely stocked with everything we needed. The resort is in a quiet area of the island surrounded by eco nature preserves, no other resorts, no noise except the birds, geckos and other wildlife and the ocean waves. Bonuses included the onsite restaurant and bar. Food is great with options for breakfast, lunch and dinner when you didn't want to cook your own meals. The bar was always staffed with great servers whether you sat at the bar, by the pool or on the beach. The beach is wide and long with a great dock and covered hut at the end with hammocks to enjoy and access to the ocean for swimming. Also available were kayaks and paddle boards lounge chairs were always available. Owner/managers Stephanie and James are always available, personable and honest and attentive to their guests and villa owners. The ocean and reef in Roatan are a natural playground to enjoy everyday. Although the resort is about 25 minutes away from busy resort areas of West End and West Bay transportation is just a simple request and the office makes arrangements as needed. If you want a resort feel in a private serene setting where the property is well manicured and maintained you will enjoy your stay. If you heard about the bugs, yep they are there too. They are on every beach on the island so come prepared with bug spray!!! Don't let those little pests keep you away from this oasis. D&L Vandermolen

The island was beautiful, the coral reef amazing. I stayed at Palmetto Bay for 8 nights, hosted by Vacasa. I loved my time here and recommend any chance to get into the ocean and snorkel. What saddened me and my experience here in Roatan was two-fold. The animal welfare and the environmental issues. I saw several animal abuse cases while traversing the island (1 at a restaurant called Hole in the Wall and 2 at animal parks). My other concern was the fumigation taking place on Palmetto Bay. The dense smokey fog made breathing unbearable. I felt like I was breathing in hazardous chemicals. I understand they do it for mosquito larvae but it didn't seem like it was killing the right bugs. Only all the other bugs were dead, the forest would go quiet (which is weird for the tropics) and alas, an hour later I was still getting bit by mosquitos and sand fleas. I think the fumigation is an environmental hazard to animals and humans and it's failing. Not to mention all the waste product that goes into ocean (the eel grass nursery) right off palmetto bay. So, other than that, Palmetto Bay in Honduras was great. Just wish they would evolve into a location that values and protects the beautiful land that it has before they kill off all the diverse wildlife in the name of tourism and money profit.

Thank you so much for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Palmetto Bay. We strive to be an eco-sensitive community and do everything we can to preserve and protect the beautiful, natural area where we live. Unfortunately, 2019 saw a significant uptick in the number of cases of Dengue Fever on the island. The Municipal government has increased its spraying and abatement efforts and has asked that private communities do the same in order to protect the entire island’s population. In tropical climates, keeping mosquito borne diseases at bay while minimizing the impact on flora & fauna is a challenging and ongoing problem. Over the years, Palmetto Bay has worked hard to identify mosquito abatement measures that cause minimal harm to the environment while maximizing the effect on mosquitos and their larvae.
