The hotel has a rustic appeal and would be an excellent choice if it weren't for the very loud, non-stop beach party atmosphere. If you're looking for some measure of tranquility, stay almost anywhere else on West Bay Beach. (There are no "bad" parts of West Bay Beach - the entire strip is comprised of powdery, soft sand and turquoise...

Lindsay, Super happy you enjoyed your stay with us. I would recommend guests who are noise sensitive from 6pm to 10pm to avoid rooms 22 and 23. They are close to the music which is a lot of fun for most of our guests. We have nightly activities which include movie night on Mondays, Quiz night on Tuesday, Karokee on...

I just got back from a too short of stay at the Bananarama Beach and Dive Resort in West Bay, Honduras. It was the perfect ending to what had been a grueling week on a medical mission in Limon, Honduras. The grounds were beautiful, the room was fantastic, the food was excellent, and the service was superb. The proximity to...

Great location but for the money there are many better places to stay. Note that this review is of the resort only. I left a different review for the dive center which was GREAT. We had an all-inclusive package including diving and meals for one week. Our room was simple but needed some better cleaning. My friend and I both...

First let me say that we love to accommodate guests and improve our service. It is important that if a guest has a problem they contact a manager or let a member of the staff know they have an issue that they would like solved. We can not solve problems we dont know about. Rooms are sprayed weekly or at...

My son and I stayed at Bananarama in September 2012 to celebrate my 50th birthday. I made our reservation quite a bit in advance and made payments until our departure which really helped make it affordable. We booked the package that included the 10 dives. Everyone I worked with up until our arrival was very friendly, accomodating and made me...

We booked our beach chair/snorkel/kayak w/banarama. Beach is nice, although, if you're there at peak cruise ship time, it's like a sea of chairs and traffic in the water. The sand is like powder and the sea is clear. I snorkeled late in the afternoon (around 2:30-3) down at the end of the beach with the big black rock. Wonderful!...

My husband and I stayed at Bananarama for one night in January 2013. We had spent the days prior in La Ceiba on the mainland and wanted a simple place to stay before we caught our flight back to the States. The hotel property is pretty and well-maintained. Each room has a patio and hammock, which is great for relaxing...

I am really happy you enjoyed our location, cabanas and staff. I can understand your frustrations here as it sounds like you arrived on Sunday and left on Monday. Sunday is the busiest day of the week with locals and tourists alike flocking to the beach. The citizens here in Honduras work 6, 8 hour shifts and customarily recieve Sunday's...

Thanks to Bananrama for making our first vacation to Roatan such a great experience! We were greeted at the airport by Steve who was waiting for us and gave us a ride to the resort and answered all of our questions about Roatan.

This was our first trip to Roatan and we were looking for something laid back that was not too commercialized for our vacation. Roatan seemed to be a perfect fit and Bananarama is definitely the place to stay. The rooms are cozy and we stayed in a cabana which gave us a lot of privacy. The hammock out of our...

Me and my wife just returned from a one week vacation at bananarama and we had a blast! Just to be clear, resorts in Roatan are at a much smaller scale than other Caribbean destinations so if you’re after luxury rooms, a big entertainment team and huge swimming pools, this might not be the place for you. What you can...
