After a 20 min taxi ride Located in the middle of the west bay beach. Its one of the most popular Beach Resort and it worth ! All the facility you need for the day ... washroom, locker, long chair, a bit of shade, view on the ocean and rental boat ... and drink. DJ is playing on the Background.

Our family of six stayed one night at Bananarama by a fluke on March 24, 2017. We had rented a condo just down the beach but couldn't get in until the 25th. Since our condo was so close, BR, as our kids named it, became our home base during our week on Roatan. The unit we had was comfortable but...

We got shorted our full time on the Roatan port. So we got our driver to bring us here to Bananarama and it was a lovely beach. Good service and the facilities were fine. Drinks were prompt and delicious!

First time in Roatan and it was amazing. The resort was great...a little rustic but that is what we were looking for. Great restaurants and service. Everyone remembered your name! The dive masters were fantastic (Patrick can show you so much sea life that you would normally miss). Diving is easy here (the boat is right out on the beach...

We just completed a two week stay at Bananarama and overall had an amazing time with only one negative item to summarize. The following is a breakdown of this great place. ***** Beach and location: One of the best beaches I have ever seen anywhere in the world and the water is amazingly clear, calm and warm. The chairs are...

We were picked up by the Bananarama shuttle and brought to the hotel. That service was very good. Check in was very organized and quick. The facility is really quite nice and all rooms are convenient to the restaurant, beach and dive shop. This is an older hotel and very rustic. They could probably spend thousands on upkeep and maintenance...

We prepaid for 6 of us to come here on our cruise stop. For $35 per person we were to get a free drink, lounge chairs and snorkel gear. The snorkel gear was never offered and we didn't ever see where to get it. The free drink was for local beer or a well drink only and the lounge chairs...

Bananarama was somewhere I picked to stay for just one night while on the way to Utila. I wanted a nice Caribbean beach to relax on after a long day of flying. Bananarama didn't disappoint! I grabbed a taxi from the airport. On the ride, my driver informed me that I was going to the nicest beach on the island....

From the title you can see that we didn’t spend the day here but we wish we had for the shade alone. The beach gets a lot of sun and there isn’t too much shade, natural or otherwise. Bananarama seems to be the one major exception. So if this is important for you, then I strongly suggest you come here....

Very nice place. Nice people. Felt at home all the time. Safe place on the beach. The snorkeling was amazing. Always enjoyed the breakfast. Would love to return at sometime and stay at this very same location.
