We had the best time at Bananarama. From the cute cottages in the flora and fauna to the wonderful staff. Right on the very clean beach. Water is divine. Brought 6 pairs of shoes, wore flip flops on one day and that was it. This is the laid-back place we were looking for. We are going back next year to see our favorite bartenders, Sandra, Eddie, Javier, Rene' and Derry. Roger the cook, Francis and Karen, front desk, Harrison and all the staff including the maids and grounds crew and Sandy and Andy, security. We met them all. Hard-working, fun-loving staff.

Enjoyed the stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Place was clean and bathrooms were large. Dive guides were knowledgeable. Had a great experience! They were able to set up a shark dive with another dive operator.

Hello Kelly,

It's awesome to hear that your experience with us was so great! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we're very proud of our staff/dive team and are glad to hear they did a great job. The shark dives on Roatan are operated outside of Bananarama, but can easily be arranged/booked by us. Thank you for choosing us as your dive resort while on Roatan as we were happy to have you! Please feel free to come back anytime, we wish you all the best and hope to see you again sometime soon!

Best Regards,
Bananarama Staff

When we go to Bananarama, we enjoy lunch and drinks near the beach. Weekly, they have hermit crab races and the profits benefit newborns from getting the HIV virus. If you are staying here, bring a can of infant formula to donate- the ladies have stopped HIV locally! I plan to bring a couple to share. I thank you beforehand for your activism and caring!

Room tip: Remember just steps away from beach, very quiet in evening.

Hello,

We're so pleased that you enjoy your time with us and continue to return. Sunday nights hermit crab races are a charitable event hosted by Bananarama that, as mentioned, help children here on Roatan. Thank you so much for your participation and support and welcome anybody else interested to come and join in the fun event. We look forward to your next visit and wish you all the best in the meantime.

Amazing time in Roatan staying at Bananarama and diving with everyone there . My three children all received their open water dive certification while at the resort ! It couldn’t have been better with their dive instructor Andrea and Marco organizing it all for us!! Can’t wait to return! The food is incredible and the location is perfect with gorgeous snorkeling steps away!!

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!
