Just spent 11 nights at Bananarama and we had a fantastic time! It’s a little rustic but we didn’t come to hang out in our room. The room was clean, always had hot water for showers, bottled water for drinking and staff was super friendly....More
We stayed 2 nights in March 2018, our first 2 nights in Roatan and it was great! Staff were all fantastic, rooms clean and inviting with a deck and hammock out in front. Rooms all have a safe. Restaurant food was excellent, service a bit...More
I have been to Roatan about 6 times. I choose to stay with Banarama not because its a great room ( rustic and comfortable) but because of the staff, the diving and the beach. It's the second largest barrier reef and it is absolutely beautiful....More
This is a great place! It's a little run down, but it's clean and comfortable. Each room is a bit different with what it offers. You can get a room with a kitchenette, just a fridge and a coffee maker, 1 bedroom or more. Even...More
We are here now at Bananarama resort on Roatan. Lovely place to stay, and only a 30 second sroll to the beach. The beautiful beach has The Caribbean blue color and the sand has absolutely no seaweed. We love it here. A Five minute walk...More

Banarama has bathrooms near the beach as well as enclosed change rooms to use. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off after being on the beach. It is FREE to use the beach chairs as long as you have purchased food or drink from them. If you don't purchase food or drink, then it is a $10 rental fee. Drinks range from $2.50 to $5 depending on what you get. Food ranges ~ $8-15, lots of variety, good. There are beach vendors that sell empanadas ($10 for 4 empanadas, look for the men with the red coolers) and local food place Arlyn's immediately outside resort (typico lunch $4-5 which includes a meat (chicken, beef, pork, fish, shrimp), beans/rice and a salad. They resort has live music in the bar from around noon to 3:00.
The cost to get there depends on which cruise port you are at - Coxen Hole is the closer port and Mahoganey Bay is further away. Taxi from Coxen Hole is ~ $60 round-trip. However, if you have at least 4 people going, you can book a shuttle for the entire day for $100 - they will take you anywhere you want, including time at the beach. If you get time, go to Daniel Johnsons Monkey & Sloth sanctuary! You could also contact the hotel directly to ask what price they would get for a shuttle for you.

Sorry! Didn’t get notified of another question. Personally 24 wouldn’t work for us. Too close to the bar and a little tiki bar area where people hang out. 26 is right behind 25 and is more private. Not direct view on the beach but honestly 25 steps away. Either would be fine but I personally would choose 26 over 24.
