Bananarama Beach and Dive Resort Roatan Island Reviews
Sparkling Waters....White Sand....Great Spot Aug 21, 2008
The beach: This beach is definitely on my must visit again list. The beach is located in West Bay, the western side of Roatan Island and is about fifteen minutes away from the cruise port, if you're going the the island via cruise ship. One thing I noted was the quietness of the water....no waves and it remained shallow for some distance. The water was crystal clear. So if it weren't for the saltiness of the water, you'd think you're in a pool. It was gorgeous.
The facilities: Although the bathroon facilities need some work, the louge and eating area were decent. Not extremely large, so it gives the impression that the beach doesnt cater for huge droves of people at one point in time. We didnt get a chance to sample any of the items offered at the bar though :( There was also an outlet catering specifically for the dive fans.
The ride: From what we were told and observed, the transport you come with must be what you're leaving with. Apparently, you can't get random taxis from the beach to wherever you may want to go. But the taxi system was pretty organized, so you can hire a driver for the day to take you around. Or rent a vehicle!
