TravelPod's Snapshot

Palmetto Bay Plantation in Honduras is comprised of traditional Balinese-style villas, each of which features a kitchen with full-sized American appliances, a bar area, and spacious bathrooms making this a great family resort. Floor-to-ceiling doors roll back easily to turn air-conditioned units into tropical indoor or outdoor abodes. Thanks to the villa setup that makes privacy easy to achieve, families and couples feel equally welcome here.

Known as a top diving destination with a reef right off the beach, there are many other activities at this laid-back resort, including snorkeling, sailing, fishing, dolphin encounters, and seaplane adventures. Meanwhile, sandy beaches, a swimming pool, a hot tub, yoga, and massage services offer just as many opportunities to relax. Gourmet cuisine can be found at the on-site, beachfront restaurant, where talented chefs will even prepare your catches from a day of fishing. Don't miss the Friday evening Honduran buffet accompanied by a Garifuna dance and music performance.

As an eco-conscious resort, waste is kept to a minimum and amenities are simplified here. But, what the property lacks in luxury, it makes up for in location. Situated amidst Roatan Island's lush, exotic flowers and towering palm trees, guests feel enveloped by natural wonders on the plantation's grounds. In addition, the boutique atmosphere and relatively small capacity lends a personal touch to the service here.

          Planned to stay here for 7 nights but ended up moving to the West end for a little bit of luxury.

          "The" Place to Stay on Roatan for Relaxation

          Palmetto Bay Plantation is a great spot on the north coast of Roatan away from it all. The grounds are full of tropical plants and trees and the beach is pristine. The villas are open-air Balinese-Style, but could be closed up and air conditioned if needed. Our Villa was spacious enough for 6 with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen. We could have eaten in, but the restaurant was not to be missed. The menu had a good selection of various cuisines, and the Key Lime Pie was fresh and amazing! I would go back, and I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking to get away from the tourist areas of Roatan and relax!

          ... to a few reefs to explore the underwater world. After having a few dives around different reefs, the amount of fish I'd seen was incredible. And with 30ft+ of visibility, I was in underwater heaven. Diving had allowed my to explore environments previously off limits to me. As my time on the island comes to an end, I've discovered a new hobby that I can't wait to continue. My next destination is the coast of El Salvador to try my hand at surfing for a while. ...

          Roatan; great budget Caribbean diving, snorkelling

          ... had a great little cabin across the road from the beach, kind of in a tree, with many hummingbirds and other creatures moving around in the garden. We only did two dives, diving on the wreck of El Aquila was great, the wreck lies at about 35m and was scuttled to form an artificial reef for diving, holes were cut in the wreck making it safe and easy for penetration. The turquoise Caribbean was crystal clear with the wreck visible from the surface while we were floating ...

          Had great fun diving, spent 3 days underwater (2 doing my advanced PADI course, and one day just for fun). The reefs here are great and I've seen lots of fish, turtles and dolphins. Seeing Dolphins and turtles in their own environment is very cool. Learned some new scuba skills, like the James Bond move, which is lots of fun! I can now dive up to 40 metres and we did lots of other fun dives and ...

          Last night we sailed around Punta Oeste, the south-western most tip of the Isla de Roatan. Here we are in Roatan, Honduras, a place that has always sounded so exotic to me.

          Because Jeff and I have never been here before we signed up with Princess to do a snorkeling tour; it leaves around 9:30 so we actually had to set an alarm to get up in time for a bite of breakfast before heading ashore. We packed our snorkeling gear and towels, etc. last night so ...

          I would feel so incredibly cool if my blog today had some American Football references, or insights that showed I have any knowledge or at least interest in the sport... however I do not. The extent of my interest in this sport is the getting together with friends around piles of food (usually including chicken wings) and screaming at the TV screen when everyone else does.  And today that is what I did. After I arrived late at my friends house because ...
