I can't say enough good things about this place! I will start with the scenery.....breathtaking! This little gem is nestled in West Bay beneath the palms overlooking the blue caribbean waters. The staff is beyond amazing! They are fun, friendly and very attentive to your needs. The food and cocktails are above average for a beachside bar. They run daily specials that can't be beat. Trust me when I say you don't want to miss out on 2 for 1 pizza day! You can also stay in one of their cozy cabanas(with ac). The rooms are clean and comfortable. You won't find a better place to relax and unwind than Bananarama!

We love this small intimate Beach resort and dive shop. Roatan is one of our all time favorite beach and snorkeling locations and this hotel is our favorite place to stay. This place has everything you need. It does not have a lot of the extras you don't need which is ok with me. It has good clean rooms with comfy beds and it is located right at the center of the West Bay beach. It does not have a huge fancy lobby with people to greet you with a drink. It does have a small check in office with at least 3 sweet young ladies there to welcome you with a smile, a room key and a coupon for free welcome drink. It does not have room service, it does have microwave, fridge and coffeepot in each room. It does not have a tv in the rooms, it does have CDs to rent and a library full of books in that small office. It also has nightly entertainment. It does not have a wet bar, it does have a real bar that looks out over the beautiful blue waters and is operated by the sweetest bartenders you could want. It does not have big buffet or all inclusive eating, it does have free breakfast, a brick pizza oven with weekly specials, a fine dining restaurant and a beach side restaurant with seafood, burgers, salads and lots of other good food. There are always super nice wait staff to greet you for breakfast , lunch , or dinner. Say hi to Carolina, one of the best waitresses on Roatan. If you are looking for fancy and uptight keep looking. If you want a place that you not only want to come back to, but let's you know in everything they do they want you to come back well then you found on of the best.

Bananarama is the BEST - staff, beach, drinks, food and rooms. If you want elegance Bananarama is not for you. If you want clean, friendly, beautiful, well organized, good value for your money Bananarama is your choice. Lindell, Carolina, DeShaun, Andy(security), AM “chair guy” ( sorry I have forgotten his name) made our experience superb. It is a perfect tropical paradise. Definitely a repeat experience.

The beach is beautiful and the snorkeling is great. The issues with crowds and vendors has already been noted. The lack of shade on the beach at Bananarama is an issue. Food is standard. I only made a day visit but based on what I saw with the beach changing area and showers I would be hesitant to stay there at night.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, reviews do matter to us and we use them to learn and grow as a resort. We're glad you chose us as your stop while in Roatan, West Bay is beautiful and should definitely be seen while on the island. The afternoon sun is directly overhead and can get rather hot, we always have staff on the beach that will bring/set up an umbrella for you if need be! Thank you again for taking the time to write to us, and for choosing to spend your day in Roatan with us! We wish you all the best and hope to see you back again sometime soon, our rooms are well maintained and clean so you won't be disappointed!

Best Regards,
Bananarama Staff

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Bananarama. We decided we picked the best place! Boys are 12 and 14 and we really utilized the dive center as well. Loved it. Enjoyed movie night on the beach, live music, free breakfast and great meals and wonderful service. The rooms were a little rough, dated, but more than adequate, and clean, getting a four instead of five rating.

Hello,

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review! We appreciate you choosing to stay here with us at Bananarama during your stay on the island. It's good to hear you all had fun and were entertained during your trip! We are a little more rustic than most resorts around us, we do that to help give guests a better island feel during their vacation. Thanks for coming to stay with us and we hope to see you all back again sometime soon, safe travels and see you next time!

Best Regards,
Bananarama Staff
