I've already raved about the dive operation in a separate review, but the rest of the resort rocks as well. The food is awesome. Especially the coconut shrimp, but also the fish tacos, the smoked chicken wrap, the tortilla chips, the guacamole, the smoked fish dip, the pizza ... and that's just at the Thirsty Turtle. The dinner we had...

Terrific bar terrific people! Looking for food, drinks and fun?! Stop in to this bar. Say hi to Sandra, Angela and Tim. You must try the drink Monkey La La! The best place in West Bay and they put on the hockey game! Manager Joannie and owner Jeff are terrific hosts and the place just makes you feel great !...

Can't wait to go again. Staff definitely make the place, a great bunch of people that make you feel very welcome. Special thanks to Denise at reception, Steven Raymond, Victor Palacios and Darwin at the Thirsty Turtle. Great location, Dive shop is top notch, food is great, still dreaming about the coconut shrimp.

For 10 dollars we got chairs on the beach. (just make sure you get there early) Or make reservations online We ate lunch there and had some drinks. Food was good and everyone was friendly Some of the best snorkeling is right in front of infinity bay resort. Go out about 300 yards and you will be surrounded by fish.

The rooms were small but everything was in great condition and staff was more than friendly. This is the place to stay, it is in the perfect location and has great food and drinks right on the property. If i came back to roatan, I would stay with Bananarama, no questions asked

This review was based on a day trip from Rony's excursions (1/23/13). We did not stay over night although the resort is within yards to the beautiful beach, tiki bar, and restaurant. The little bungalows seemed nice from the outside. The overall atmosphere was great. This was a family friendly beach/resort area. The bartenders at the Bananarama hut were extremely...

Beautiful sandy beach, snorkeling and diving, yummy rum drinks. Loved it!! Resort is no frills, but a perfect place to relax and forget your troubles. Trees and hammocks give you a place to relax away from the intense Caribbean sun. Kakaks and rafts enable you to enjoy to crystal blue water. Will definitely be back.

Bananarama gave us a great first experience in Roatan. The staff was great, the food was good, and the drinks were STRONG!! We did a smaller dive package, and had a wonderful experience with our guide. My only complaint here was that our dives were often scheduled around the ppl who went diving every day... not necessarily when we wanted...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Bananrama through a Groupon purchased for a 4 night stay. It was really fantastic! The staff is excellent ( Danery and Denise were very helpful at the front desk) and the bartenders at the Thirsty Turtle are so much fun. Tim was unforgettable, but they were all great!

We learned to dive at Bananarama five years ago with our youngest son and couldn't wait to come back with the whole family, all eight of us. It was the perfect reunion vacation. We rented the King house and had lots of together time. We dove everyday. The dive master and instructors - all highly professional - worked up a...
