“Lovely Low Key Tropical Property”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2011

I just returned from 3 months on Roatan and was fortunate to have stayed at Sundancer Cabanas in Sandy Bay. Very centrally located - just a quick taxi or bus ride to W. Bay or Coxen Hole and within walking distance of 3 restaurants. Shrimp at Blue Parrot is sooooo good!!! Skippy Kirsch, the property mgr. is a wealth of hospitality and information and Dan & Holly can handle all your diving and snorkeling needs. Loved the dock and spent many tranquil hours on the top deck watching waves break over the reef. Snorkeling is awesome on the reef at Sundancer - much better than at W. Bay. Fireflies, Hummingbirds, beautiful blooming plants and beach - just wonderful. Do bring insect repellant - sandflies everywhere.

I love traveling with my daughter who researches everything to the nth degree and finds wonderful bargains. While we would have loved to stay in West End for the gorgeous white beach, our budget said "won't happen." We stayed 5 days at Sundancer and met lots of interesting people and had easy access to other towns by taxi. The Blue Parrot was a wonderful restaurant right by the road on the property. The best part of the trip was that I felt safe and would definitely go back solo. I did not feel that way in Tobago 2 years before.

Taxis can be expensive if you chose to explore all the facets of the island, but I don't think I would have wanted to rent a car there as the drivers are rather "spirited." Skippy, the manager of the Sundancer was very accomodating with advice and any needs we had. While my daughter likes to try new places, I prefer comfort and routine and would definitely come back here.

Loved it - especially Lynne & Bob (the managers) ability to get things done. This spot was perfect for our needs - with two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bath and two screen porches. we also enjoyed and used daily the pool - a perfect place ot relax and cool off after a long day. We also liked the location - and enjoyed the beach and reef - although it is a bit of a swim to the reef. having a car is certainly handy, but taxis are frequent and very cheap on Roatan. We also liked the nearby restaurants - Blue Parrot and Sunshine - different cuisines, but both good.
Diving was our attraction to Roatan - and the diving is very nice - not a lot of big fish, but hopefully they will return as the marine park gains traction. Sundancer is a nice choice for those who want to be a bit away from West End and have a condo like experience in a nice setting. But, do bring bug spray - there are lots of bugs in the tropics.
We were very pleased with the Sundancer.

Just spent 2 weeks at Sundancer Cabanas. These are 2 bedroom ( some with a loft for 3rd bedroom) units built using local woods and surrounded by lush flora and fauna. Remember the old adage: Location, Location, Location. Sundancer is IT. They are close enough to both West End and West Bay, but just far enough away on Cruise Ship days when you don't want to go to the West. There are 3 restaurants within walking distance, and the pool is very nice and secluded. The best part of the community is the 300 foot long pier with a great elevated deck at the end. Perfect for snorkleling out to the reef, morning coffee watching the sun come up, and coctails at night looking for the Green Flash. Skippy and Dave are both very considerate and knowledgeable, and will help you with any needs. Our unit did not have A/C, but we never missed it, and slept under the fans. We do recommend you ask for a cabana with a screened porch, as it will allow you to open up the unit to get the great breezes that blow through.
Yes, there are bugs, but only at sunup and sundown, and they never slowed us down. Bring a bottle of Cutters or Off, and go on your merry way. The cabanas are rustic, but clean and comfortable. This is NOT a 5-star resort, so don't expect it to be one. But for great prices, excellent location, and safe, secure accomodations, we don't think it can be beat. We'll be going back

I recently traveled to Roatan and stayed at one of the Cabanas at Sundancer and, overall, I was incredibly pleased with everything. Our Cabana was perfect for 2 couples:it had 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, and living room. Our place was well decorated, clean, and fully furnished. I absolutely loved the location because we were away from all the large touristy crowds but close enough that we could get to those areas in less than 5 minutes taxi ride. The private dock was beautiful and we didn't find that there were very many mosquitoes; we were seldom bitten. Furthermore, the manager at Sundancer took good care of us by informing us about the island, picking us up at the airport,dropping us off, etc.. We all enjoyed our stay very much and recommend Sundancer Cabanas to anyone (unless you are wanting a commercialed all-inclusive experience).

"Serenity on Paradise Island" is found at Sundancer Cabanas in Sandy Bay, Roatan Island Honduras. We stayed in Sundancer Cabana 1B for an entire week and had nothing but fabulous experiences one after another! Our Cabana was beach front with an amazing dock out into the most exquisite view of the ocean (day or night). Unbelievable snorkeling right off the dock with the reef just minutes out and tropical fish you can't find anywhere else, all to yourself. Peace and serenity without the rush of tourism around you. Four unbelievable restaurants to choose from without ever having to get in a car. The Blue Parrot is right on sight with Bay Island Beach Resort only 30 minutes down the beach(walking) and 2 in between. Some of the best food I have ever had!! Our cabana was beautiful! Our screened in porch allowed us to enjoy early morning sunrise coffee with beach view and late night meals with the sound of the ocean rolling in as our background music. Absolutely Perfect!! We also took in a few island excursions: swim and snorkel with the Dolphins at Anthony's Resort ( just down the road from the Cabana) and Ziplining at Gumbalimba Park, both amazing! Sundancer Cabanas in Sandy Bay - an absolute must!
