We stayed here for a few days last week. The hotel was very quick and friendly upon check in, and we got several vouchers for free internet as well as a coupon for a free drink at their beach front bar. We stayed in Villa #27 and it was very cosy and clean. There was a water cooler with purified...

Jenny, Thank you so much for your comments on your stay. I am really happy to hear you had such a great time. We have added a lot of amenities to the rooms, but beach towels have not been one of them as of yet... we are working on it and hopefully will have this figured out by your next...

Stayed here 3/3/14-3/10/14 with a groupon, the villa was more than expected, with two bedrooms, the lower bedroom in the two villas we stayed in had two twin beds, and the master was upstairs with a queen bed. I was worried staying here about the water and needing to buy filtered water. To my pleasant surprise we had a poland...

Stayed here with a group of 6 - two children (4 & 6) for a week. We have room #27 and LOVED it. The villa is but a stones throw from everything you need, for example all of 20 seconds walk to the beach, 30 seconds the bar and restaurant. We had NO problems with noise, sand fleas or anything...

We stayed at the Island Pearl for four nights in January 2014. It's actually part of the Bananarama complex. The management is very accommodating and desires its guests to be happy and satisfied. The villas are air conditioned (helpful in this humid hot climate), spacious, clean and comfortable. Queen bedroom upstairs was lovely. Off the bedroom was a screened porch...

Dear Worldtravelbuffs, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and future guests.

We just got back from 5 days/4 nights in Villa 27, and are already planning and looking forward to going back!! Start with the Villa, #27. Nice, clean, and cozy, for what little time you should be spending inside, and was way above our expectations! Downstairs, a decent sized kitchen/dining area, a bedroom with 2 twin beds, and the bathroom/shower...

The Island pearl is in a great location on a very nice beach. There is a lovely courtyard surrounded by the accommodations which is really great when the beach gets crowded by cruise ship people. We stayed in units 29 and 26. The owners villa (29) is really spacious and comfortable. Only negative was a cabbage smell which seemed to...

Bill, Thank you for sharing your experience. We have tried to keep Island Pearl as rustic as possible while increasing a number of our guests requests such as chilled water dispensers, quiet AC's and ceiling fans on the decks overlooking the ocean. The best part most guests enjoy is that all our Villas have a great beach view and are...

Island Pearl is a smaller, quieter part of Bananarama, that is authentic while still having modern conveniences of wireless service, purified water in your room and air conditioned rooms. Jeff and Robin made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and made everything from taking the kayaks out to pointing out the most beautiful spots to snorkel, so relaxing...

First trip to Roatan and we had much debate on where to stay based on all the TripAdvisor reviews. We ended up picking Island Pearl/Banarama, and couldnt have been more satisfied. It's right in the middle of the best beach, and has the best bar scene on this island by far. We ate several meals there, and the food was...
