2nd time staying here, in the exact same villa, and it was everything that we remembered from the first time. Sand fleas were a little bit worse this time, but hey, it's nature, what can you do. A great deal for the location, cant be beat.

Have stayed here for four years. The beach is very well maintained (to deal with sand flies); there is great shade and very friendly staff - the service is good and friendly (island time standard). The biggest negative is the food selection, esp. at breakfast is limited

We love the Sunday Brunch at Island Pearl. It is really the best we've found on the island so far! Not only is the food fantastic, but the all you can drink champagne is a nice bonus! Great place to just chill and enjoy a Sunday Brunch. Highly recommend.

Highly recommended. If you don't already know, this is an area within Bananarama Dive Resort (took me a while to figure this out as I was researching). We stayed Jan. 17-24 and I’m already trying to figure out how soon we can get back to Island Pearl! I travel for work and tend to be critical of hotels – I... More

I can not add more to the review I already wrote about how much I love this place. It is not for everyone as stated, (see "laid back gem") but it fits our needs to a "t".

We recently returned from a one week vacation at the Island Pearl. We stayed in room #28. It was a tiny cute room right off the Vintage Pearl restaurant.

The 3 of us loved the place and could walk to the dice boat. Just a little funky as we like it and we had a room on the beach overlooking the water, but still private. Would recommend for sure and stay again.

Island Pearl is a perfect choice for the family. Over the years, we have stayed in four of the six units at the Island Pearl and they are all wonderful. Charming, comfortable and eclectic are how I would describe them. They are shaded and very private. The amenities are top-notch, especially for the kids. Ample beach chairs, sea kayaks, beach...

We stayed in the cheapest room (#27 ?) here, which was a bit smallish, but clean and comfortable. The room was next to the Vintage Pearl Restaurant, which was actually empty all the time, but we heard the staff from our room, so it is not really secluded. Breakfast, purified water, and canoe usage was included in the price. The... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) spent 10 nights in Villa 27 in early April. Roatan has been on my radar for about 20 years, since I was a backpacker traversing the globe, not a mom with 2 kids and 1 floppy dog. My hope, therefore, was to get that "traveling" vibe while simultaneously enjoying a family vacation... More

“Beach side and beach front villas are exact same layout/size, so if you are debating, the beach front villas are literally 30 steps from the beach, but the beach side villas are amazing as well and about 60 steps from the beach.”
