Barefoot Cay in Roatan, Honduras

Imagine the brilliance of a tropical wonderland, where bright sunny skies endlessly shine over crystalline waters, and the delightful scent of the ocean drifts across golden sands, and you will picture the magic of Barefoot Cay. On the southern shores of Roatan Island, one of Honduras' Bay Islands, this fabulous beachfront resort is enveloped by the warmth and wonder of the Caribbean. The resort includes a private 4-acre cay nestled just off the main island, where you can relax by the T-shaped lap pool or soak up the sun on the beach. Where contemporary luxury meets the tranquil ambiance of beach living, each of the stunning lofts, bungalows, and villas is vibrant and lively, yet relaxed and soothing. Enjoy plush Heavenly beds, elegant bathrooms, and the use of full kitchens, and step out onto your balcony or covered deck to soak in the mesmerizing views of the sea. Enjoy the atmosphere of the beach, all the modern amenities, and the wonderful care of the Barefoot Cay staff, and discover a beach wonderland you may never want to leave.

As the sun rises over the Caribbean, venture out on your first day to explore the natural beauty of the island and sea. Join in an amazing diving expedition, and visit the fascinating crevice drop-off of Mary's Place, and the sunken wrecks of the Prince Albert and the cargo ship Mr. Bud, and come face to face with the brilliant local sea life. Enjoy a relaxing afternoon of kayaking as you glide along the coast, or stretch out on the beach, soaking in the sun, and cooling off with a dip in the crystal clear sea. Discover the island from high above on a helicopter tour, or from far below as you cruise under the seas aboard a submarine. Spend an afternoon sport fishing on the open ocean, or breathe in the refreshing sea mist as you fly out over the waves on an afternoon catamaran sail. Take a day to explore the island with a visit to Gumbalimba Park, and meet the wildlife in the animal preserve, stroll through the fragrant botanical gardens, and delight in an exciting zip-line canopy tour of the jungle. After a wonderful, full day on land or at sea, return to the resort for the perfect sunset dinner. Dine wherever you wish, from the dining room, to the pool cabana or a romantic beach picnic, and enjoy a vibrant menu that blends the best of International, Caribbean, and South American cuisines. At Barefoot Cay, each day brings an exciting new adventure, and each night complete peace, quiet, and the brilliant twinkling of the stars.

Absolutely love this place. Definitely where I'll be staying the next time we get back. My mom, brother, and I stayed in an ocean view loft... which was much bigger than i expected... more than enough room and we loved it! Loved that the resort was so quaint (maybe 8 room/units total) and away from all the craziness of West Bay. From the moment we landed, the staff was great! Josh welcomed us at the airport. Just about 10-15 from the resort. We were welcomed with a drink and a tour of the resort. All the staff was amazing (shoutout to Matthew and Steven)...and we were lucky to meet Gary, the GM, our first night there, so there was no need gone unmet. We felt like all the staff knew us personally. They provided a "house cell phone" that allowed you to call anyone on the resort from anywhere on the resort and virtually anyone/place on the island. The room was great and had a full kitchen! Bathrooms were clean and beds pretty comfortable. The breeze from the balcony patio was unbelievable... could only imagine what the villas were like!! The only 2 downfalls were it was pretty far from any sight seeing or attractions..minimum 20-25 minutes. While it was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle, taxis became pretty expensive. And also, the spa room was under maintenance so no massages, etc. were offered (they could come to your room, but didn't feel the same to us).

I have stayed at Barefoot Cay twice now, and I am so happy to have finally found a perfect dive vacation as a "non-diver" (a phrase I learned these past few years since marrying a diver). I am a beach lover, and hubby is a diver. Barefoot Cay has everything that I could wish for – casual elegance – secluded beachfront bungalows, personalized service, delicious food and drinks available all day long, comfy beds, an amazing spa, and the best resort staff I have ever encountered. I have never felt more taken care of than at Barefoot Cay. They also have a highly-rated dive shop with everything my hubby could ask for. Hubby and I wake up every morning looking at the gorgeous sunrise from our bedroom window before having breakfast overlooking the ocean from our patio. He then heads off for his two morning dives (although they do have more) while I sunbathe on the private beach…and then he’s back in time for lunch. We hit the pool and socialize with a great mix of divers & non-divers. It’s the perfect marriage (literally and figuratively). When we first started dating, hubby described his past vacations and they sounded so lovely… but what I have learned since marrying a diver is that not all resorts are the same. Vacations for me BMD (before marrying a diver), required gorgeous beach views, luxurious suites with really comfy beds, delicious meals & drinks available anytime during the day, secluded areas, but nice social areas as well. Now, a lot of these places “have diving” but I have learned that that diving doesn’t really cater to an experienced diver. Hubby on the other hand, vacationed at dive resorts with top notch valet services that really catered to experienced divers, but if you were a non-diver.. you’re pretty much sitting around waiting on the divers to get back before you’re getting food, drinks, anything really. And when they are all back – well, you’re sitting around listening to divers talk to divers .. about …diving. So then the diver and the non-diver wed… Hubby was beginning to give up hope that we’d ever find good diving resorts that had things for me to do. I was giving up hope that I’d ever see a 600 thread count sheet on vacation again… but then we found Barefoot Cay. In googling “dive resorts for non-divers too”, I found a blog of a couple who frequented Barefoot Cay – one diver and one non-diver that thought very highly of this resort. They were not wrong and I am so grateful to have found their recommendation!

we spent a week at Barefoot Cay in mid april. we stayed above the dive shop and it was fantastic, The room was huge, the little boats ran us back and forth to the pool so fast we didn't even blink. We had a huge deck and when I asked for a lounge chair, they had it brought up by the time I returned from lunch. What can I say about the staff. I work in a community center/gym with 10 thousand members. I am always watching for excellent customer service and relationship building moments. The staff at Barefoot cay had so many. By the second or third day, they knew my food preferences, so a shout out to Matthew at the dining area. And the rest of that staff as well. The housekeeping staff kept the grounds and rooms spotless. David, the chef ,made amazing food, and I love to cook so I am picky. we bought the all inclusive package and I found the variety just great. the prices at outside establishments are high so it was a great value. Breakfast of shrimp and grits and lunch of shrimp and roasted vegies and ribs for dinner... how can you go wrong....The setting was intimate we had privacy and made friends too. nice snorkeling around the property. the manager Gary was hands on, making sure he said hello and checked in with his guests, like they were his family, daily. on to the diving. I am 60 and was a little nervous as I had not been diving much in the last 6 years. The manager of the dive shop, Lida ( may have name wrong giant apologies) was so helpful arranging everything. We had 9 dives and one was a night dive. I was scared but did it and now I feel invincible!!!! the boats are so clean and the captains help you on and off the boat and give you fresh watermelon after each dive and a nice warm towel. they take care of all your equipment. diving with them is so luxurious , I may never be satisfied anywhere else, ever again!!! to my dive guides who brought me strength and courage, Ron, Chantel,and Christian and the student interns, Ali and Nick I owe you a debt of gratitude. I feel macha and strong and that is good to feel at any age..... and the dives were gorgeous. My favorite was Connies Dream, which felt like a dream come true. We even met the owner who we talked into taking his car, with him in it as our guest to the local sports bar to watch or favorite team the Golden State Warriors in the NBA playoffs. We took a tour of the island with Ken ( fee based , well worth it ) and ate lunch at the HOLE IN THE WALL with Ericka and had conch and lobster with beer in the Mangrove forests. Stephanie, the operations head, made all our arrangements a breeze and Cici in finance kept us up to date. The whole staff is so welcoming , I want to work for this company. they are my style. treat people like your family , your welcome guests, your friends, and they will have a wonderful experience. kudo's to your staff you deserve all the excellent reviews. Wish I was still hanging out on the deck!!! Wendy from Northern Cal

We recently spent a week at Barefoot Cay and enjoyed our experience very much. There are a few things that could be improved to make this a full-fledged 5-star review (I gave it 5, but would like to give it 4.5). First, the really great stuff: 1. Location. The resort is a few km east of the airport, well away from the chaos of West Bay and West End. If you're looking for a party-all-the-time place, or even somewhere you'll see a lot of people walking around and doing their thing, this isn't it. For us, that was a big plus. We did make the trip to the west side twice, and it was fun to see all the hawkers and crowds, but that's not how we want to spend our whole vacation. 2. Staff. Everyone is very friendly and eager to please. Booking activities with Stephanie, Josh and Levi was easy, although we did have a couple of minor mix-ups (a cancelled taxi that still showed up, and a booked one that didn't; a massage that started 30 minutes late). They are all very knowledgeable about the island and happy to share their recommendations. We also benefited from having one of the original owners on the property while we were there; he recommended the two best restaurants we ate at. The servers and housekeeping staff are unobtrusive but very willing to help all the time. The staff to guest ration seemed to be very high. 3. You have the place to yourself--usually. The resort was fully booked during our stay, but it was rare to see anyone else on the palapas or the beach, and even the pool area usually had plenty of open lounge chairs. The one exception was when a couple of boats docked (apparently for the long term) at the pier. The crew spent that day and the next at the pool, and the impact was noticeable--not bad, just... there. Apparently during Easter weeks, and other major holidays, 5-7 boats are docked here. I would recommend staying away during these busy times if you want total peace and quiet. 4. Kid friendly, for older kids. We had our kids with us (two teens, one 11) and they enjoyed it very much (although the older one would have preferred the west side action). We tried to respect other guest RE: noise and horseplay, but we did not feel awkward having them in what is otherwise a pretty adult-oriented place. Still, I would not recommend this for toddlers or young school-age kids. There isn't much they could reasonably do all day (the pool is lovely but would be mostly over their heads, and the beach is beautiful for reading/sleeping on lounge chairs but bad for sand play, because of the fleas (see below). 5. Comfortable, stylish rooms. We were in the Cottage, although we had originally booked the 2-BR suite on the beach (there was a booking issue, so they upgraded us). We also rented a one-room on the beach for my daughter. The bedding was very comfy, the shower was wonderful and the communal furnishings were inviting (big couches, comfy dining chairs, large tables, great lighting). 6. Good food and drinks service. We did not do the meal plan, as we knew we'd be traveling a bit on the island and wanted to explore other options for dinners; having the kitchen also made it easy and better for us to get our own breakfasts. But the food was generally very tasty and always freshly prepared. The service can be slow (even when you pre-order dinner), so just be prepared for that. The desserts were super yummy. Pricing was extremely fair except for some of the dinners: the fish and meat options seemed right for $27.50, but the veggie and pasta options should probably be about $10 less, IMO. 7. Hammocks and lounge chairs are everywhere. It's really nice to be able to spread out and just enjoy different views, shade/sun spots, and so on. 8. Our massages from Doris were really fantastic and very reasonably priced. Book in advance for a 10% discount AND to ensure you get her. They are moving the spa room to the pool area; it remains to be seen, I suppose, how quiet and relaxing that will be, but it will make the transition to/from easier. 9. Shuttle to/from the airport was flawless, as was renting a car the two times we needed to. 10. Getting to borrow (free) snorkeling gear for the duration of your stay is awesome. One of those nice touches that might cost them something (whatever you'd pay to rent gear) but pays huge dividends in guest happiness. Now, the (very minor) "room for improvement": 1. The drinks were on the sweet side; I think they use the supermarket "juices" that are really just sugar water. It'd be great if they'd switch to fresh-squeezed ingredients. 2. They have a kayak and two stand-up paddle boards for your (free) use, but they must be returned by 4pm, which is kind of a bummer. It'd be nice to be able to use them in the evening, to watch the sunset. 3. It'd be great if they put out a water cooler by the pool, and maybe in a couple other communal locations. And also, if they'd put plastic cups in the residences, so you could take drinks to the beach without having glass. And a teapot in the residence! 4. The biggest issue, for us, was that the oven in our place didn't work. Not only that, but it beeped constantly, including several times in the middle of the night. We finally figured out how to flip the breaker and cut the power, but then we didn't have a working stove top. Now, we understand things happen, and we didn't really need it to cook big meals; we got a toaster, which helped with breakfast prep, and when we wanted to use the burners we just flipped the breaker on. But if you book the cottage ask about the status! 5. The bathrooms at the pool were handy but could stand more regular cleaning. Just restocking towels and mopping the wet floors, that kind of thing. Also, in 7 days I managed to score a lounge-chair cover twice; they were hard to find (it's not like everyone else had one--no one did). Those are minor issues that I, as a seasoned traveler who has stayed in everything from hostels to the Four Seasons, would knock off half a star for, but which would not prevent me from highly recommending Barefoot Cay. It's a beautiful place, fairly priced for the experience, with lots of amenities and generally excellent service. We have already talked about when we can return.

Came to the resort for a nice dinner. Atmosphere was nice, but dinner was mediocre and the most expensive we had on Roatan by far. The only item ordered that was good was the filet. Otherwise fish overcooked and dry. Calimari VERY spongy.
