This place is like "Sangri-La" from the Lost Horizon movie... There is beauty, colors, gorgeous beaches, mountains, landscapes, wonderful flora and fauna... that is just to start with. The actual geography of the resort is on a small hill overlooking at beach settings facing East and North; there is also a gorgeous set for yoga practicing, which faces West and...

If you want to get away from it all this is the place. About an hours drive from Mahogany Bay this is truly the Garden of Eden. We had a day pass while cruising on the Crown Princess. Carl picked us up and swept us away to this garden spot. We were greeted with open arms and shown to our...

I have traveled to many places from Guam, to Canada, to Europe and to Mexico. I have been on cruises and to all-inclusive resorts. While on a cruise last year my wife and I obtained a Day-Pass to Paya Bay Resort. I never thought it possible to be treated like royalty but the staff at Paya Bay was absolutely amazing....

We returned last week from a fun, relaxing vacation at Paya Bay. It is easy to see why many view this property as a little slice of paradise. The setting is spectacular, with beautiful views of the bay and reef beyond at every turn on the pathways which meander through the property. Paya Bay is the only resort in sight,...

We booked the day excursion through Paya Bay during our stop in Roatan on our Royal Caribbean cruise. It was perfect! We got away from the cruise ship crowds and got to experience a great, locally owned resort. The driver picked us up at the port, and drove us to the resort, which took a little over an hour each...

We spent 2 weeks at Paya Bay and loved it. The web site is a good representation of the hotel and grounds. The family oriented staff was friendly and so helpful, even to the point of bringing hot lemonade with honey to our room when they learned my husband was sick with a fever. (the day after we arrived; he...

We arranged a day trip directly with Paya Bay during our stop on the Carnival Magic. It was a truly relaxing experience once we arrived. Located on the far east end of Roatan, Paya Bay is very quiet with a wonderful view of the reef. The staff is attentive and responsive. Because Paya Bay is not part of Carnival's "official"...

Spent the day and it was great. Lunch was outstanding and service was also outstanding. Can't wait till we come back. The only people on beach were me and the wife. Weather was perfect and the water a little cool but nice. Just another outstanding stay.

Sadly, reviewers cannot give half stars - we would actually given Paya Bay 4 1/2 stars. The only hitch, but one that set the tone of the stay was a failure for the hotel shuttle to pick us up at the airport. When we tried to call the hotel they had the wrong phone number on our email confirmation as...
