We were a little apprehensive after having read some of the reviews that had been posted for this place, but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. As another reviewer said about this place, if you're looking for a 5-star place with all of the amenities then don't go to Roatan.
The staff there are great and go out-of-their way to be helpful. Our room was nice (except we had to run the hot water for about 5 minutes to get a warm shower) and the housekeeping staff did a wonderful job every day. Maintenance (or upgrading) work is still in progress but it doesn't interfere with normal operations of the place. Food is alright and we always found something that we liked. The selection of food is minimal and there are no signs indicating what food is, but other-than-that it was alright (remember this is not a 5-star). The only time that food is available (other than special requests for a cost) is at meal times and there is no snack bar there.
The beach is kept clean but I suspect that we hit the Sand Flee season as everyone brought home some itchy dots as well as a tan (this was the same for people staying at other resorts as well). There is no beach service so you'll have to fend for yourself and go to the bar if you want a drink.
Good snorkeling can be had right in the protected bay right in front of the resort and you can see some replica Mayan Ruins in about 15 feet of water right off the beach.
Diving is fantastic with many, many dive spots within a couple of minute boat ride of the dive shop. The dive staff are all great and cannot do enough for you. If you're a diver, then look into the dive package, it will be well worth it.
This is a great place for divers and a nice spot to go to unwind.
