Still at AKR but am departing tomorrow. So while it's all top of mind, just wanted to drop a few notes about it. The diving was great. Even though the resort is full, the divers are spread out over several large diving boats so it never felt crowded. The viz was over 100ft and water temp over 80 deg(F) and there was a lot to see. Spotted an eagle ray, some stringrays, turtles, toadfish, a couple of seahorses, a nurse shark, a couple octopus, billions of big groupers and the usual array of small critters.
My son is in dolphin camp and the program is top notch. He loved every minute of it. The scheduled activities give parents the freedom to dive and they even have movie nite on night dive days.
The rooms are nice. We are on the key over the water with air conditioning. We had some big red ants inside almost every night and saw a roach or two, but for living this close to nature, I guess we can live with it. The rooms are not posh hotel digs...the beds could be bigger, linens a little softer...etc. but for a dive resort, it works.
The food is really quite good. I saw other reviewers complaining about the food, but my family enjoyed every meal. There is a charge for alcohol and sodas but they charge a reasonable amount....$6/$7 for cocktails, $6 wine, $1.50 sodas....nothing like the charges U.S. hotels levy for those things so it's easy to live with.
Generally the service was very good. Hit a couple rough spots, but that seemed to be more about that person at that time - in general the staff is very accommodating.
Did the shark and the dolphin dive....and both are highlights of the trip. Gotta do it! 3 dolphins...up close & personal in open water...they swam around us for 45 minutes and toward the end were looking to be petted...it was adorable. And at least a dozen beautiful grey reef sharks appeared on the shark dive. It was well run - not scary or threatening at all.
Tips:
-The weather forecast a week before departure said there would be rain & storms all week. It was gorgeous every day and rained maybe 5 minutes today. Not sure you can rely on those weather sites for this place.
-The coup happened just a few days into our trip. It has not really affected Roatan. There was a peaceful protest here on the island today but all the other activity has been on the mainland and it has not affected our trip at all.
- You can get a modem from the hotel front desk and use wi-fi for $50 for the week from the rooms even on the key - or you can pay $10 for 2 hours but you have to use the computers near the office.
- Deet. I didn't try Cactus Juice but my 20% deet works! No seeums look like ash falling from the sky. They don't hurt but they do leave big red marks and are here all day but very active dusk & dawn.

the pros: Great dive sites 5 minutes away, better ones 3 minutes away.
Easy on and off the island and the resort.
Super easy going staff. your wish is their desire
Informal, relaxing atmosphere with plenty of happy hour
Not to mention the food, WOW !
Great, new, private cabins
If there is a modern convenience they've forgotten, just wait, they'll have it
next year.
The Cons: Don't forget your bug spray

When I got home on July 2, I saw the news and was shocked that Honduras ousted their President. Who knew and who cared! Anthonys is fantastic and safe! Whatever you seek in a vacation can be found at this facility. I was looking for diving, food, friends, and leisure. I got much more! A special thanks to Mandy of Operations who worked behind the scenes to make everyone's trip awesome. To my dive master Calderon: thanks for the shark, and seahorses! Much love, Lynn

I have been to Anthony's Key a dozen times with friends and family. The have the best dive operations anywhere. Wonderful service and a completely safe environment. A lot to do even if you don't dive. During the summer they have a camp for kids -- dolphin camp which the adults would be thrilled to do. The Galindo family are the owners and they are at the resort making sure everything is top notch.

We stayed at Anthony's Key Resort during our anniversary trip in April. Although AKR caters to divers, we enjoyed having the resort to ourselves during the day while the divers were out on excursions. The staff were all very nice, hard working people. We stayed in a room with AC and were really glad we did bc it was VERY hot in Roatan. There are bugs but you should be fine as long as you bring your bug spray. (Before we booked with AKR we were very scared about the number of bug comments that were made on these reviews.) Trust me, you'll be fine! It's not an infestation or anything.
