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!

My family and I (myself, husband, 10yo and 7yo girls) stayed at Palmetto Bay for 2 weeks in June 2021. What a gorgeous resort! Upon arrival at the airport we were met by a driver who drove us directly to the grocery store Eldon’s before taking us to our home for 2 weeks in paradise. The first thing you see when you arrive is the stunning ocean view down the hallway of the main office and restaurant. Maritza checked us in and was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Our driver took us directly to our bunglow, Casa Junto Al Mar and helped us unload our luggage. Maritza gave us our tour and gave our key to the castle! The house was beautiful, cozy, and we immediately felt at home. One thing to keep in mind is that the home had A/C in only the bedrooms, which made the main living space and kitchen so hot that they really weren’t usable outside of the early morning. But I’ll get more into that later. After putting away our groceries we immediately got our suits on and ran directly to the absolutely GORGEOUS private beach. Wow! Absolutely beautiful. We loved spending time at the pier gazebo in the hammocks after our long day of travel. We ate at The Cove restaurant for dinner. Our waiter Joseph was wonderful! We shared the sampler platter. It was pretty good but after waters, tips and fees, the platter dinner ended up costing $120. Good but not that good! The next 2 weeks were filled with so many fun and memorable experiences all over Roatan. Anthony’s Key, West End, West Bay beach, Little French Key, gumbalimba park, AJs Monkey & Sloths, catamaran tours, snorkeling, horseback riding. We rented a car that was brought directly to us at the resort. We were so glad we did because while we loved the quiet serenity of palmetto, we needed the car to get around as there is not a lot to do close by the resort. All in all we loved our stay and would stay here again. Here’s a helpful pros/cons list :) Pros: Gorgeous grounds, beach, houses Quiet, serene…away from the “touristy” areas Driver picked us up and took us to the store Rental car delivery Help with excursions Water coolers and affordable refills ($2 per 5 gallon) So many gorgeous plants/trees/wildlife to see! The servers Joseph and Fabrizio at the Cove The snorkeling The catamaran tour offered through Palmetto Bay Cons: Lack of AC in main living space. By 10am the main living space and kitchen were so hot we had to retreat to the bedrooms. Not usually an issue as we were not in the house most of the time but on rainy days or on a day someone wasn’t feeling well it would have been nice to live in the living area. We had no hot water for several days. That was not the best scenario. It was eventually fixed but took several days and emails with no info on when we could get it rectified. Location…it’s a pro for us but if you don’t have a rental car, you don’t have much nearby. Rent a car for sure. It would probably get pretty pricey to use a cab. The restaurant is pricey for what you get so be prepared for that. Lizards….not a con for us but they could be for some. They’re in the house. We enjoyed them but there was some poo on the kitchen counters so have some disinfectant wipes. I’m sure this is the case at many places on the island! The beach is beautiful but there is lots of sea grass. If you’re wanting white sand hundreds of feet out, you won’t have that here. We would definitely stay here again. It really is a piece of paradise!

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!
