Not much you can add that's already been written about Bananarama. What truly makes this place special is the people. From the owners to the landscapers, the dive shop, Vintage Pearl and everyone in between..just awesome. That's why we decided to have our wedding here. The weather wasn't great but no matter everything else was. Thanks so much to everyone...

We have stayed at Bananarame, Island Pearl 4 times now and we will be returning again. Dive shop, all the staff and accommodations are unbeatable. It's the best location on West Bay, the calmest beach, amazing snorkeling and diving on the reef. Not a fussy resort more laid back Island style. No need for shoes at beach restaurants, Vintage Pearl...

Just returned from a one week stay at Bananarama with my two teens, husband & friends. This was our 4th trip to the island. We normally stay at Henry Morgan but due to different factors decided to try Bananarama. First off, Jane was an absolute gem to deal with by email, answering my emails promptly & having great patience with...

We stayed at Bananarama Dec 3-10 through SunWing, almost All Inclusive (pay for alcohol). No sense preaching to the converted here, everything about our stay was excellent. But the most impressive thing about this place is the on site ownership and how proud they are of their 91 staff. And with good reason. Its not fair to single out one...

Bananarama is located on probably the best beach of Roatan, along with a whole host of other resorts and villas. Because of the beach, Bananarama/West Bay is a hot-bed for the cruiser ship/day hoppers...you can spot a cruise shipper a mile away (chances are...they will be a lot closer than that). Overall, the accommodations are not unlike anything you will...

We do aim to deliver excellent customer service to all of our guests. Christmas and New Year's week are very difficult for us and the island as a whole in regards to being able to serve everyone as they are our busiest two weeks of the year. During this time we do our very best to try and insure each...

My 18 year-old twin sons and I spent the week before Christmas at Banarama Beach and Dive Resort. The lodging is great, but what really makes the stay at Banarama fantastic is the help. The help is very friendly, courteous and helpful. They make you feel important, like you own the place or something. One of the waiters at the...

Like a lot of people also say, this place is friendly and has that rustic island feel with the lodging and overall atmosphere. It is on the nicest stretch of beach on the island, and we strolled up and down discovering little places every night, but coming back to the Thirsty Turtle. The employees were great. Shout out to Sandra,...

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...
