“Lovely!”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

If you want to get away from the crowd on the ship, take the day and go over to Little French Key. We were concerned that we would not really have enough time to fully enjoy it but we certainly did. It's laid back and small and calm and restful so the time seems to expand. We took our own snorkel gear and enjoyed some simple snorkeling right there around the Key. (I would take bug spray- regardless of where you go in Honduras.) The water was beautiful. The food was simply divine. The folks that own the island are precious- kind, thoughtful, considerate. Make sure that you ask people where to find the driver. You have to go out, up a small hill and then down- not far- to find many of the independent operators. Just keep asking locals and they will keep pointing you and are very nice about it, even competitor tour guides. On the way back to the ship, they can take you right in to the good drop off area. Bizarre but true. My husband I were there with my daughter and her baby along with my son and his wife. They kayaked and read books and did all kinds of things. It was a great day.

“Had to ourselves”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We went in July and had the place to us and two other couples. Very neat place with a rasied platform that you can jump off about twice as high as a high dive at a local pool. Also wonderful snorkling on the other side of the reef from here and they will take you for a fee. For us it was $40 for a little more than 1/2 a day including lunch and a drink... I think the cruise ships pay $75 or so...well worth it. Beautiful spot

“Surprise luxe fun!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

I decided to surprise my new husband on our honeymoon with a trip to Little French Key with lunch. The experience and day there lived up to the excellent reviews.
One other couple was there (it was low season, and a week day), so we had the beautiful, deluxe grounds and excellent service to ourselves. I felt like I had been dropped into a movie set with my own personal staff: chef, bartender, and assistant. The attached pictures will hopefully speak to the review, but if you care to spoil yourself, go. Other than a few sand fleas and umbrellas that could stand to be replaced, you will be wow'ed by the huge deck and eating area, the various places to lounge, the patio, the lagoon palapa, the second story lounge/bar (yes, you can jump in from there, and we did. loved it. see pics), and the general seclusion. If you explore the attached island, be diligent about bug spray, but do check it out. Showers, bathrooms, and well attended to monkeys, birds, and private swimming spots await you.

Congraulations on your wedding and Honey moon!!! Thank you for your kind words and positive review...We are in the process to replace the umberalla covers thank you, believe it ot not the Umberallas are only few months old and the breeze, the salt spray, sun and the elements have a way of ripping any fabric to shreds in short order, we are one with nature here in Little French Key....Sand fleas are very common all over the Roatan Island and are being managed the best we can without destroying the adjacent natural reef, second in the world, with harmful pesticide.......We are very glad that you and your husband enjoyed your time with us here at Little French Key....

“What a gorgeous place!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We came in for the day from our cruise and although the cruise ship does not make it easy for them to pick you up, they were waiting right outside of security. Pleasant ride through town and then the promptly got us transported over to the island. Since it was off season,we had the entire place to ourselves with another family of 4. Mark the bartender was so helpful and entertaining, the staff was so helpful and kept the place immaculate. Our daughters loved the monkeys, snorkeling, kayaking and jumping from the high platform into the beautiful lagoon. We didn't want to leave and thought about skipping the rest of the cruise!

“OMG Little French Key”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

My boss told me about Little French Key from a visit earlier this year. I booked the excursion while on a Carnival cruise to Roatan with my wife and 11 year old son. OMG!!! the best excursion I have ever been on while on vacation. Total peace and relaxation for 6 hours while on vacation. The setting is beautiful and the staff and owners were beyond friendly. The food was the best food I have had on any island excursion and it was included in the price. I rate Little French Key at 12 out of 10. I can't say enough good things about this place. We were met by the owner at the bus outside of the cruise terminal and driven to the resturant and then a short boat ride to Paradise. This place is a MUST see while in Roatan. Very well priced for a day in Paradise!!!!! Thanks for making our vacation one to remember.
