We stayed for 6 days in early July at Paya Bay and had an amazing time. They picked us up at the airport and drove us down the beautiful island. Ask to stop at the grocery store for some snacks on the way to the resort. The property is very beautiful and carefully maintained. Exploring the many beautiful trails was...

I can't say enough about this beautiful place! We had a one day shore excursion here and can't wait to come back for a week or so! We were greeted with fresh fruit and smoothies then shown to our room for the day. We then went down to Bliss Beach and were amazed that we were the only 2 people...

Stayed here with my Fiancee for four days/three nights. Place is well off the beaten path, but worth the trip. We rented a car, since we were switching to a place in the West End for the last three days of our trip. Dirt road for the last few miles, but if you drive carefully it is not an issue....

We spent a week at Paya Bay in early June and it was wonderful from beginning to end. The grounds are lovely, with all sorts of secluded hideaways, and bliss Beach lives up to its name. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is excellent. We also loved resort dogs Thelma and Louise, made us miss ours a...

While driving out on East End we came across Paya Bay Resort where we took a respite and enjoys a 2 hour lunch. What wonderful views. While we did not stay at the hotel we found great charm in the facility. Obviously if you stay at Paya Bay Resort you will be isolated, therefore needing to plan on eating there...

The reef is only 200 yards off the resort's beach, and the closest dive center is only a 10-minute boat trip away. We spent a week relaxing and completing our open water certification. The roads on the east side of Roatan are not the best, but the access to the water and the reef are everything you could ask for,...

Paya Bay is amazing! I felt like I was a kid on Tom Sawyer's island for the entire stay. This property is a labor of love, meticulously maintained and thought out. We stayed in a cliff side room and loved the sound of the ocean below. The included breakfast was always good, and the food choices never bored us for...

I used that word many times during our two week stay in mid-May of this year. It described the weather, people, jungle, beach, walkways, room, and most any site we saw. We had a ride waiting for us when we left the airport, which was a good start. We've been seeing on the blogs that it's a 45-50 minute ride,...
