The Henry Morgan is an amazing little gem! This small intimate hotel has a very laid back island feel to it, the lobby is very different with day beds and loungers everywhere. The rooms were great nice canopy beds, two closets and a balcony with hammocks and beautiful views of the lush mountains. In the hotel description is clearly states NO OCEANVIEW rooms! So not sure how people can complain about that when it states it in the description! And if you look at any pictures you will see that the rooms are located further away from the lobby but your on vacation so not sure why people are complaining about a 10 minute walk through the beautiful property to the beach.
The food at the resort was OK nothing special, its just like any other Caribbean island all your basics!! However, the beach where the HM is located in lined with restaurants, and ALL of them are amazing!! We had dinner one night at the resort and decided we would like to try the restaurants with them being so close well what an experience that was first ill say the Bananarama (Thirsty Turtle & Bar) is out of this world!! I think I gained 10 pounds from their coconut shrimp alone!! They have great deals 10 JUMBO coconut shrimp, and 2 sides…either a huge salad, fries, sweet potato fries, veggies and much more all for $15USD!!! The stone oven pizza here is amazing, better than pizza I have had in Ontario!! Beachers has great Lobster Tail dinners, as well as the steak house right beside which offers beach dining and great surf and turf meals!!
If you are looking for absolutely amazing snorkeling lets forget about DR, Cuba and Jamaica! Roatan has the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world and the snorkeling & diving is out of this world!! Snorkeling right off the beach is surprisingly amazing, if you go left on the beach from the resort all the way to the end where the rocks are and snorkel straight out you will see coral reefs and large canyons everywhere, we saw huge parrot fish, angel fish, squid, some giant starfish & sand dollars and the biggest lobster ever!! Not to mention the other 100’s of kinds of fish I don’t know the name of! OR get off the island and take the Cayos Cochinos day trip to the small 13 islands snorkel or dive for hours and explore the true beauty!! They offer a beautiful lunch on a small island of about 100 people, which the island has no electricity or running water so its pretty amazing to see how they live there.
The actual beach at the resort is to die for, long and white sand, crystal clear blue water..rent the paddleboards and go out around the reefs! Don’t forget to pack some extra clothes, toothbrushes, advil, ect and give to the locals they are so greatful!! And bring bug spray, I was bit heavily by the sand fleas but my boyfriend did not have one bite on him!!
Some of the reviews on here are absolute crap and they are the people that will complain about absolutely anything and everything!!
