We rented a private cabana for 2 couples - well worth the extra money - had large area of beach to ourselves. Included drinks and snacks in the air-conditioned cabana, large sitting area inside, large sitting area outside with nice cover, then large area on beach with our own heavy duty floating devices. We had 2 waiters available to us for the entire day that we could order drinks and lunch. Lovely and relaxing. Read Less

Ultimate resort Getaway...it was very nice, but you couldn’t swim at the beach. It was very sharp and rocky, we skipped the expensive lunch, but the people were nice, and it was a good day.

Tabyana Beach is an awesome snorkelling destination with the reef directly off the beach. There are passages through the shallower parts of the reef to areas that are 4 metres deep with a huge variety of fish, some of which I had never seen before. The beach is private, very secure, and run by a very helpful staff. If you snorkel don't miss this gem of an experience. Read Less

Amazing snorkeling at West Bay Beach. Hired Rony's tours for a personal car for the day. They sent a driver and a guide. It only cost us $120 for a van for 7 people, including tip. They took us to Infinity Beach Resort at West Bay. The water was warm and clear. The resort pool was beautiful. We had a great spot the beach with chairs and tables. My husband and nine year old and 7 year old daughters were able to snorkel and see the most amazing things. Great videos of it on our Go Pro. The beach was calm enough for me to enjoy with our one, three and 5 year old well they were gone. The food was good but a little expensive. There mudslide was great. We would definitely go there again next time. We are looking into spending a whole week in Roatan. This is very surprising to us because we did not expect to love it so much. Read Less

Turquoise Bay beach break. It's about a 45-minute drive from the ship to the beach itself. Beautiful views as you come up the hill. We were squashed onto a tiny bus with narrow seats. Not very comfortable, especially when coming around sharp corners. Our tour guide was very friendly and could tell us all about Roatan. I had heard all the stories about biting flies and sand fleas on Roatan beaches and brought bug spray with me, but it wasn't necessary. Everyone was very friendly and the fish fingers we had for lunch were delicious. Read Less

as described in review for Roatan excursion, the snorkel staff at the Tabyana Beach Resort will relentlessly follow you in the water and continue to try and get you to agree to go further out and have them feed the fish around you, going so far as to circle you while you are under until you come back up. Despite our protestations they went ahead and threw food in near my eldest child drawing a frenzy of hungry fish towards her and deepening the association for those fish that people = food and making them more aggressive towards people as a result.

We did an all-inclusive beach day at Sol y Mar. We think the cost was high for the limited features available. Not a bad location but I would suggest looking over all the levels of packages available and knowing what features are in your package before you arrive. And if you are interested in snorkeling have it included in your package instead of paying extra once you are there. The beach was nice but small. There is no pool. Lockers are not free. Waiters/bar staff are friendly and helpful. One waiter even waded out to waist level to deliver beers to our group. We were not expecting that and all of us rushed out to meet him. Read Less
