Honeymoon in Paradise



Wow! Is all I can say~ we never thought we would have such a great honeymoon. The hotel is amazing and eco friendly which we love since we are into the eco friendly vibe. The hotel has has a long beach with white sand and a long dock with a palapa where we had great massages.

The restaurant is beachfront with a long pavilion looking out the beach, with amazing views.

The villas are tastefully decorated with high ceilings and hardwood, all stainless steel appliances in the kitchens, all villas have a large living room and wrap around porch.

We decided to go there for a long weekend and had a great time, I spent some good quality time with my fiancee, just what the doctor orderesd.

“Our wedding”

My fiancee always wanted a beach wedding. So we finally decided to book our wedding at the Palmetto Bay Plantation Resort after reading about the beautiful weddings they do.
We booked the hotel early to get the best accomodations and to plan ahead. Our wedding was beautiful and just as beautiful as the photos on the website, if not more prettier.
The beach is like the Corona comercials. Our guest were very happy with our location and many are planning to come back again.
The wedding day was beautiful, the beach was set up the way we wanted it and food was amazing, definitely no complaints.

We plan to return for our one year anniversary.

Thank you Palmetto Bay!

Buyer beware. What seems like paradise at first blush, is more like a cardboard facade. The whole point of going there, given the remote location, is to enjoy a pristine beach and water. This was made impossible by the revolting sea grass in the water and its related sand flea problem. The beach was rendered totally unusable by the sand fleas.

Going into West Bay filled us with regret for not staying there. It would have totally changed our vacation!

Just came back from an awesome trip with my fiancee, from Palmetto Bay Plantation.

I come from an island in Belize and I thought it would be the same, you know island life but this is totally different. This resort blew me away. It was so romantic and relaxing, just what we were looking for, from staff to the villas, the beach and palapa were excelent, the drinks in the bar were fantastic.

If you want to totally relax and get away from everything this is the place.

Make sure and do the couples massages on the palapa, with champagne. Higly recommended.

Palmetto was excellent! Exactly what we wanted!
Laid back, yet adventurous (fishing, diving, kayaking, etc)….off the beaten track, friendly staff, beautiful houses and resort, nice pool, great bar and drinks. You can even buy food at the local market to cook at your house if you want.
I would say that that this resort is much better than anything you will find on West Bay and West end (I’ve seen them). But if you like a little more party seen then this is not for you.
The only draw backs for some might be the sand flees (they bite a little so you need to bring your bug spray but this is almost every on Roatan), it doesn’t have “the nicest” beach, but very clean – a beach you can sunbath on but not one you want to swim that much in as there is sea grass right at next to the beach.
We had a great time!

Palmetto Bay Plantation Resort is the best place to stay on the Bay Islands. It's perfectly secluded, but there are still many wonderful and entertaining things to do on the resort. The subway dive shop is located on the resort, available for snorkel as well as scuba dive trips daily, where a variety of amazing underwater life can be seen. There is a working restaurant that serves delicious food of all kinds. There is a beautiful pool that overlooks the amazing sandy white beaches and crystal blue water. The bungalows are wonderfully furnished, making for a perfectly tropical ambiance. The beach breeze blows through the airy, open bungalows, as one may be awoken to a melody of chirping tropical birds and a burst of island sunlight. The people are very accommodating, allowing for a very peaceful, easy, and entertaining stay. I would recommend Palmetto Bay Plantation Resort for anyone who desires a relaxing, leisurely, entertaining stay, whether they had small children, teenagers, or even if they desired a romantic getaway. Palmetto Bay Plantation Resort is a wonderful place to vacation!

I used to be in love with charm of the west end. I have been coming to Roatan since 1996 when I stayed in a hotel in West Bay. At this time the West End epitomized the true essence of Roatan but now there are so many cruise ship people that come onto the beach almost everyday of the week and concrete condos that have replaced the sea grape and coco plum trees that it has lost its peace and tranquil feeling and its' essence. Palmetto Bay does have sand flies but so does the rest of Roatan. It is also out of town on a dirt road but it's quiet, beautiful, natural and a true place to get away from the daily stress of our modern societies. The sandflies can be kept at bay with all natural citronella oils that you find in the naturalist store at home. There is also a very nice pool in front of the restaurant which the kids loved. The restaurant has excellent food, there is full service so we never went hungry. Of course we could have cooked in our house if we wanted to there was everything we needed. One day we walked to the village down the beach and bought some fresh fish from the local fishermen that we cooked on the BBQ, it was delicious. We also found a local boat captain to take us out to a wreck on the reef where the kids had their first experiences snorkeling and loved it. Unlike other resorts on the island all the employees are Honduran which we really appreciated because through interaction with them it exposed us to the true Roatan culture. While all of Roatan has undergone tremendous changes in the last 10 years there is one place I can keep returning to and count on experiencing the tropical serenity that my family and I seek...Palmetto Bay Plantation.
