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...

My wife and I recently took advantage of Paya Bay's "two for one" special. Our stay was full of likes & dislikes! Likes: Paya Bay is on the remote East End of Roatan away from the built-up areas of the island. The property is very natural and almost appears untouched. The Cliffside Rooms (I highly recommend Room #4) hang over...

We stayed here in a cliff room one night of our trip to Roatan. Thursday nights the Garifuna perform, it was entertaining and fun. The breezes here seemed to be the best on the island, great views as well.

To begin with, let me say that Paya Bay is probably one of the prettiest resorts on the island and offers many options for all types of people. We went to Roatan to look for property and knew that spending the whole week there would be wasteful this time, so decided to just book one night as we didnt want...

The previous 2 reviews are 'right on'---a great resort with clean rooms, awesome views, excellant food, reasonably priced drinks, CO areas, and snorkel trips to the nearby reef!

What a wonderful week! We traveled with another couple and really enjoyed the stay. We did go in the off season to get a really great rate (half price) and the days are not always sunny. But, it did not prevent us from doing about anything we wanted. The staff is fabulous, so friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent......

Set on a beaufiful and isolated site, the resort provides a casual and relaxing atmosphere with good food and the most friendly staff I've ever seen. You felt like family!
