Turquoise Bay is a gem if you are looking for peace and quiet, stunning landscape and sea, excellent food and attentive, bilingual (Spanish-English)staff . It is perfect for a couple or families with small children wanting a safe beach. Diving is a must.
The rooms are simply furnished, scrupolously clean, the beach white and never crowded. There is a small pool for those who want one.
The restaurant serves delicious meals, the menu does not change much, but you can eat 2 meals a day for a week without having to eat the same thing twice.
The resort is fairly distant from towns where more action is to be found and it is difficult to move around, as taxis do not like to drive you that far , public transport is not reliable and renting cars is expensive.
The dive shop within the resort is just great, it runs a divemaster program and the students serve as very gracious hosts, everyone is knowledgeable, attentive, friendly and the dive sites exceptional.
Kudos to the hotel manager, Jesus, for his eagerness to please and accomodate guests, to the restaurant staff , young and enthusiastic, to the divemasters Emily and Brian for their knowledge and poise.
Beware (like in all of Roatan) of sandflies and mosquitos, omnipresent and quite obnoxious.
We had an amazing week at Turquoise Bay and look forward to returning as soon as possible.
