Great place to stay if you are a diver.
Posted Jan 24, 2015
I travelled alone and first and most importantly, I felt very safe in the West Bay and West End area. Actually, I felt safe in tge entire Idland, Such a great place to travel for diving and sight seeing.
I am not an everything included concrete and pool resort type. I am more into the Ocean, Beach, wood and easy going type. Bananarama was the perfect place for me. I travelled to Roatan for diving and the resort had everthing I needed. I stayed in the garden area where It is very quiete and could get the early evening rest I needed for diving.
The dive shop is about 20 seconds for the rooms in the Garden Area.
The dive staff made everything easy and ajusted to the level of diving that showed up for the dive in AM. When too much difference between the group, they spilt in two boats, so everything enjoy the dive. If weather is not good on one side of the Island, they take you on tge other side.
There always a dive guide that takes you and show you the main interest of the dive, but once they know you are a competent diver, they will not babysit you either. I have been diving for 18 years and I've been an intructor for 8 years and found the dive staff was really well balanced between, Safety, Regulation of the Marine Park and fun.
It is an Eco Friendly dive center and have very passionate dive staff.
For those that are complaining about the noise on the resort, they probably stayed on the beach side. The Garden Side is very quiet and perfect for divers.
