My wife and I just got back from our second visit to Paya Bay, and we can't wait to go back! Such a peaceful place, you'll feel like you're all alone under the sun. The smell of the ocean air, the soothing rhythm of the surf, the breeze rustling through the palm trees... you'll be in heaven. The grounds are...

We are nearing the end of our extended stay here for this year and are happy to report that it’s been awesome! Past privacy issues for naturists have been addressed extensively by the installation of a coded security gate and a day pass program. There have only been a few unregistered “walk ins” and they have been quickly asked to...

Paya Bay certainly means well and if we lived in the Americas then this resort would certainly become a regular holiday spot for us as there are not many places where snorkelling and nudism are both on the agenda. However crossing the Atlantic with the difficulties in flight connections and stop overs has probably diluted the attraction for us. If...

Enjoyed our stay and wished we were able to stay longer. I agree with most of the other reviews but will add a couple of things. The resort infrastructure is rather basic but nice and fits in with the natural setting. Wood and stone. There are little path ways carved out of the rock and bush that connect everything together....

We were planning to arrive in Roatan on a cruise ship and looking for a place that was not going to be crowded by all the other passengers. Paya Bay resort turned out to be the perfect solution for a one day trip. We arrived at 8AM and were greeted outside the sea port by Arnie. The 1 hour drive...

My wife and I got a day pass for the day our cruise stopped in Routan. This place was the highlight of the trip. The resort is small, probably about 10-12 rooms, the clothing optional beach was also small, but not crowded at all. Everybody was nude so we felt comfortable also going nude. There was a larger non-nude beach...

Paya Bay is awesome. The beaches are small strips of beautiful white sand with perfectly clear Caribbean water - with the perfect water temperature. You can snorkel right off the beaches or take one of the twice daily snorkel excursions to fantastic reefs not far from the resort. The rooms are nice, the food is great and the staff is...

While staying at Camp Bay I came out to Paya Bay on several occasions. Although we had a kitchen, the soupa marinara (seafood soup) was a staple. We even brought containers and ordered it for take out. The soup is cooked in coconut milk and is truly a meal, with large chunks of lobster as well as conch fish, potatoes...

We stopped for lunch to do a survey for future trips. This resort is not easy to get to and would not be for someone that prefers to walk every where. It sits along a very rough dirt road and is not close to anything. Having said that, if you have personal traansportaion and like the beauty, solitude and seclusion...

As many other reviewers have noted, the grounds, landscaping, trails and beaches at Paya Bay are spectacular. It is truly a private slice of paradise and the clothing optional aspect makes it a very special place. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the service was always excellent. Food in the restaurant is pretty good, though not truly excellent,...
