Tucked away on the island of Roatan, Anthony's Key Resort is a legendary tropical wonderland where lush greenery rustles in breezy sea air. Pristine beaches rim turquoise waters. And wooden bungalows perched above a tranquil lagoon offer guests incredibly scenic views and a sense of perfect disconnection from everyday life back at home. For over 40 years, this family-run paradise has been home to divers in search of unspoiled waters, and lovers of natural adventure in all its forms..

We had a great time at this resort. Other than one snotty dive master who yelled at me for not saying hello when I was getting breakfast (I am not a morning person in general and honestly didnt even see him), the staff was pretty great. The dives were fantastic and the operation

From the moment the Anthony's Key Resort picked us up at the airport, everything was amazing. We didn't have to wrangle our luggage or find a taxi in a foreign country. Our bungalow was right on the water, with two very comfortable beds, a nice bathroom and a lovely deck

This was our 4th trip to Anthony's Key. Starting back in 2010 when we first visited to now, this place is amazing. They have made many upgrades and continue to make this resort the best of the best. The staff were very helpful and made sure that one of our group had gluten free

I had contacted the resort to cancel my reservation due to the illnesses. They were willing to let me rebook for next year without losing my deposit. Yesterday I received an email that they have found the source of the contamination (one of their food distributors) and have changed suppliers. They offered for us to keep our reservation for this year, and we have decided to trust that they have solved the problem. I sure hope it wasn't the wrong decision!

We ended 2 weeks at AKR Dec 22. The resort specializes in easy dives under the supervision of a competent dive master who will select locations / conditions suited to the general diving community or least experienced diver. There are lots of newly certified divers. Beginning divers will welcome easy boat entry and exits in clear warm waters. We had 4 rough days the last trip that I chose to opt out. If the north side is rough, the dive boats will go around to the south side. One side or other is usually calm enough to dive. The PADI fac offers a short fine tuning buoyancy clinic as well as any other SCUBA subject you might wish to address. PS: GI / abdominal issues continue to pester AKR. 5 of my group of 6 came down with symptoms from minor on up. AKR is pursuing all available avenues to eliminate the problem. Bring "Immodium AD". Pills are better than the nasty tasting liquid. Bring a prescription for the broad spectrum antibiotic CIPRO if you can. It seems to stop symptoms in 24 hours. Water is warm there, I don't use a wetsuit at all! But visibility is down a bit from earlier in the year. Say 30 to 80 ft.

I have been to AKR five times wiothout sickness issues and in Oct. 2018 I did get stomach issues. I felt that it was from eating the "warm" slaw. My husband also got it. Not fun! We noticed that many were not on the dive boats the next two days! Take all needed precautions and keep your hands clean. Imodium in your bag. Not stopping me from returning to this lovely resort and dive vacation. We will be there again in May 2019.

We just returned from this resort and the GI issue was rampant. There were 2 in our group (including me) who got it, 5 of 6 in another group and 5 of 5 in a third group, and those are just the ones I talked to personally. It caused muscle aches, chills, diarrhea and stomach cramps in most I talked to, including myself. There were jugs of hand sanitizer all over the resort, but it didn't seem to help, because we used them religiously. If you go, be sure to bring some intestinal bug antibiotics, immodium and pepto bismol. My husband took pepto bismol daily after I fell ill to prevent getting it, but he did have diarrhea most of the week. Definitely something that will ruin your vacation!

Hi JG, it sounds like you made an error in your review and you want to change it, but reviews on TripAdvisor cannot be edited once they are posted. You posted your question here but people who read your review won't see it, so you really need to change your review so it reflects your true experience! It is easy actually, just contact Tripadvisor and tell them you want to update the review. There is a link on this site but I'm not allowed to post any links in my reply. So just Google, "How to change my review rating on TripAdvisor" and the link will come up. Good luck! Hope this helps!
