... iguana eggs, and barracuda...! People like him give Asians a bad name, haha. Well... Since tonight is my last night and all, I suggested to the girls that we go to Bertie and Miss B's, the turtle stew place. They were down! They wanted to have a going away dinner for me anyway (which is kind of silly since I've been here for 5 days, haha). Bertie and Miss B's is located in Coxen Hole, a place between West Bay and the airport... According to google. Well, we cabbed ...
... bedtime, which wasn't far behind arriving to be honest. We are on the island for 3 nights so plenty of time for relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere As always thanks for all your lovely messages and emails. Even though I'm travelling with 17 other people there are lonely moments when I miss the company of friends and family so it's great to know that you're still there and mildly interested in what I'm up to!! There's a sun lounger somewhere with my name on it so adios. Hasta luego. ...
What started as food poisoning, developed into a cold and cough and ended up possibly being a slight chest infection kept me out of the water and layed up for two weeks. Two weeks without any internet unless I walked fifteen minutes to get it meant I spent most of my time watching previously downloaded movies and tv series and subsequently got into the apathetic state that occurs when boredom takes it's toll. I didn't spend all my time in ...

... juice. After breakfast we all made sure we had enough water, suncream etc for the day. It was about 9 o'clock when we started walking to the Dive shop, it was all ready sweltering and I was all ready sweating in my nice new board shorts and tank top that I purchased yesterday. Jose & Jurdis had to drop of some laundry on the way. We started the day with going over the questions from yesterday, and answering questions while watching a video for the next ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fantasy Island Beach Resort Roatan
Fantasy island Beach Resort, Roatan Honduras
Beach is beautiful, snorkeling is great. Service is horrible. Food comparible to cuba not much variation. No entertainment everyone goes to bed at 9 or 10. No daily activities. This is stricly a dive resort. There are day trips but they get expensive and so does anything off the resort. Drinks are domestic only and to be honest the rum compares to water.
The bugs don't hurt or itch until you get home, and once your home you will wished you went somewhere else for that kind of money.
we returned from fantasy island on feb 12 2005. all and all i enjoyed the resort. yes the bugs were bad but no different if you went somewhere camping. the beach was beautiful and the water great. the resort was clean and the food good. the staff was always friendly and very helpful. the staff was always working around cleaning and raking the beach. it is a very small resort and they seem to be working hard to upgrade it. if you are used to 5 star resorts and big buffets and fancy rooms, by al means do not got there. it is a 3 star resort not a 5 and you should not expect it to be the same as a high rise in cancun. all in all we enjoyed our trip and renting a car to drive around the island. the weather was good. it did rain a few times but only in the morning. i have read a lot of negative reviews about the resort. if you like fancy do not go. if you like clean and small with a great beach and weather do go. there is not much night life but they do have a few shows during the week.the beer was good and the rum drinks also. they only have one bar and it closes at 11 but they have frigs in the room and we bought beer in town. if you want good shopping go to coxen hole on tuesdays when the cruise ships come in. they have a good market there and a lot of vendors. any other day it is quite with a few good stores to shop in. if you like the water to dive or snorkle it is the place to go
Just returned from a week stay at Fantasy Island Resort with 19 other divers on Feb 5.....
This is the real resort from the Robin Williams classic "Club Paradise".
I am rating Fantasy Island "Terrible" based on the actual hotel, but have nothing but great things to say about the dive shop on site.
We just returned from a one week trip. Unlike other reports we found very little fish life. After travelling for the last 10 years on dive holidays I expected more life. there was the normal fish life but not in great quanities. We did see a sea horse and the other group say a turtle, again we were only there for one week. It could also be the time of year. The diving is well organized and with the direct flight out of Toronto it is a very simple trip to organize. Dive centre was excellent and meal times are around the boat dives, so you never miss a meal. Our boat allways left on time and sometimes early. Large boats with very few divers so there is lots of room. If you have never dove in the south then this is the place to start. One of the best dives is the shark dive. most dives were near an hour long. An example of how close the sites are-the boat left at 9am, we did a 62 minute dive and were back at the dock by 10:25.
I read the previous review of Fantasy Island Resort before we left on our 9 day vacation. That writer nailed it right on the head. Fantasy Island is a very mediocre resort in terms of food and accommodations. All of the existing rooms need a face lift. They are however, just finishing a new building and those rooms should be pretty decent. I imagine they'll be ready for occupation just after Jan 2005.
