I cannot say enough good things about this resort. This is a no frills place to stay with great people right on the most beautiful beach with excellent scuba diving. The scuba shop went above and beyond to make our vacation memorable. Yami made sure my BF got all his dives in. I am a new diver and my bf is a seasoned diver and he is hard to impress and he left here very happy. Arturo and Chip were awesome scuba guides, boat captains Mark and Brian got us to and from safely everyday. Thirsty Turtle Bar/restaurant on the beach is perfect for drinks a quick snack between dives or dinner with different activities at night. (Edison/Israel and Derrick make the best drinks!) The reef here is healthy and we were able to see so much, we are already planning a trip back. Special thank you to Jake at the front desk who helped us locate a lost phone. This is a small resort that will make you feel like you are right at home and will go above and beyond for you.

The Bananarama is a dive hotel, so please expect to go Scuba Diving. This is a great place that includes breakfast, you can charge the meals at the Thursty Turtle to your room, and the staff is friendly and the place is safe. Shout out to Edison, the GREAT bartender. thank you Edison for all the drinks! Shout out to the Dive Staff. Yami, you are the best manager. Martin - a great dive leader. Aurturo - THANK YOU for certifying my wife for Open Water. you are a wonderul instrutor! Chip, well what can I say - you are both funny and professional. You poured your patience into Nicolas (10) to get him certified. Thank you! I recommend this wonderful place for a no-frills and great dive expereince. The dive gear is great, the boats are SMALL! For (2) dives it was just my wife and I. Cannot beat that memory maker that only Aurturo and the two of us!

Room Tip: We stayed at #14, uppper room with loft. Beds are great. Walls a bit thin, yet ear plugs can help.

Spent my honeymoon here 5 years ago and sadly it took that long to get back and it still just as great as I remember and finally being able to partake in the diving makes it even better. Atmosphere is perfect, very laid back. Wonderful grounds and I'm pretty sure the Wifi got upgraded. Also shout out to Yami, our Dive Instructor, made diving so easy and safe. One of the best! Absolutely will be diving here again and hoping it becomes a regular thing, now to find excuses to get back.

We had a wonderful time at Bananarama. Service was excellent everywhere on the property. Loved our room and hammocks overlooking the sea. Had a gazillion meals and drinks at the Thirsty Turtle and everything was delicious. And the dive shop was so incredibly convenient. See you again someday I hope!
