All of the service team was excellent and very kind toward us. We felt like being home! The food served in the thirsty turtle was delicious and also the drinks and cocktals! We remember the girls at the reception: Sara, Daneri, Denisse and Victoria they were always willing to help and solved everything faster; besides, they made us feel comfortable....

This hotel was awesome. It gives you a more rustic feel than other hotels on the island and still has most of the luxuries of the others. The employees were absolutely unmatched. I usually like to do a lot of exploring, but ended up spending almost every night at the Thirsty Turtle. Zebby, Derry, Eddison, Angela & Sandra at the...

This coming June will be my fourth time staying at Bananarama. Honestly, I think that says enough. The staff is friendly, the food is a tasty and a great deal, and if you are diving, you can not beat the dive shop. I've been diving with other outfitters on the island, but as soon as I dove with Banarama the...

This was my first experience at a Dive Resort after getting my dive certification, and was very satisfied with the beautiful Villas at Vintage Pearl (with help in scheduling from Jane, Sara, and others); and ate every meal at the Thirsty Turtle and Pizzarama (without being 'All Inclusive') because the food was so good, and enjoyed the fun and friendly...

Just got back from a cruise that stopped in Roatan, Honduras. We booked a day trip to hang out on the beach at this resort. $35 per person for R/T private transfers, 2 drinks, and beach lounge chairs. Even though it rained the whole time we were there it was still a great place to relax, enjoy the music, and...

Just got back from a cruise that stopped in Roatan, Honduras. Steven Raymond & Angela Rodezno were our awesome bartenders and we had a blast. Great service, great drinks, and an overall great time! If you are visiting Roatan, definitely check it out! There was live music, games, swings at the bar, and lots of beach activities.

Great food, good times, especially on St. Patrick's Day. Carolina Walter, one of the wait staff at the Thirsty Turtle was the friendliest person in Roatan. We will definitely visit when we go back and enjoy the festivities again.
