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.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 6 days ago

My husband and I traveled from Ottawa, Canada to Barefoot from April 10-17th (right in the middle of Semana Santa!) and had a wonderful trip from start to finish. I will echo all the positive comments posted before me - the service was friendly and went above and beyond, the accommodations were top notch, the food and drink was excellent, and the beach, palapa, pool and activities (snorkeling and diving) were amazing. Our trip was to celebrate an anniversary and we left our two young children at home with grandparents (aka suckers).. so we had done some research and chose Barefoot because it was on the south side of the island, away from the cruise port and busy areas of west end/bay, and because it was deemed a luxury resort. It definitely was!! We originally booked a beachfront room (so two queen beds with a lovely washroom and shower and a fridge, not the full kitchen) which we loved especially that we could walk out onto our beach with the hammock and view and sea breeze! I say originally, because partway through our relaxing stay some of the 'boat people' (from the marina, the big yachts) had a lil hangout right outside our room one night and were loud and annoying. haha.. annoying to us, just young kids having fun to them! I called the manager, who sent the security guy, twice.. and they left. The next morning I let Stephanie (guest services) know what had happened, and within an hour she was knocking at our door with an offer to upgrade us to the big bungalow at the other end of the cay. We accepted, and spent our 3 remaining nights there with more stunning views and beach and no noise. We went diving, but just here and there (7 dives in a week) and it was definitely a la carte and top notch service. The dive shop is excellent and we had great dives, and also did the shark dive which they took care of arranging for us (very last minute, thank you again Liana!) I loved it.. but we lucked out with a smaller group (11 ppl total) and the one complaint I heard about the shark dive was when they took out much larger groups. Swimming with sharks was surreal. We ate well.. opted to not do the meal plan which left us open to have the appetizers (not included in the meal plan, but you could have them and pay extra) which ended up being our favourite food anyways! Without our kids, we ate at random times and meals haha.. so some days we would have breakfast, and then dive, and then eat appetizers and happy hour treats in the late afternoon and that would be our dinner. We did book the romance package and I would recommend that as well if luxury and relaxation are what you are going for. It included a welcome bottle of champagne, couples massage on the palapa, candlelit dinner and a breakfast in bed. All amazing. We met lots of lovely ppl and heard the island is gorgeous with lots of activities and beaches and things to see/eat/do.. we didnt bother since we were there to chill and dive when we felt like it, but for those who want a luxury spot as a base and then travel the island that was definitely a feasible option. No complaints whatsoever. The staff are all awesome ppl and all went out of their way to make us feel welcome and tend to our every wish! I think Roatan itself is a great option for Canadians, families or couples, with the direct flights to/from Mtl (Air Transat was great too!), the amount of English spoken, the ability to pay by creditcard or USD cash.. And Barefoot I would recommend too for families or couples. I would go back, even with my kiddos! We didnt even need any cash for Barefoot, as everything is just put on your room tab and you pay it all and allocate whatever tip you want (to whomever you want) at the end of your stay. Easy. Quiet. Beautiful. Happy to answer any specific questions if you want to PM me. THANK YOU BAREFOOT CAY RESORT and BAREFOOT DIVERS!!!!!

I stayed at BFC from April 8-15. Because people exaggerate and/or complain, I aim to give you a full quality review with the good, bad and other. Just to state it clearly, lest it get lost in various details: the hotel is wonderful. The thing that sets it apart, for me, were the staff. They knew my name. They knew my son's name. They were always helpful, attentive, and polite. I got to know a few of them, and they were sweet, wonderful people who take pride in their work, in the guests, and working at Barefoot Cay. Generally speaking how a company treats their employees shows (have you seen United Airlines recently -- yuck!!!) so it's nice to see a group that are so pleasant and attentive. On to the review: I stayed in Fuschia from April 8-15. I was travelling with my 15 year old son. We arrived at Roatan airport, and couldn't find our ride. After a few minutes, I called, immediately got Josh who apologized but was only 30 seconds away. He wasn't lying, he drove up and explained the island road was crowded with construction (I saw this first hand). He spoke beautiful English and was just a nice guy. No big deal. I mention this just because if you want everything to be like at a big, impersonal resort -- this isn't the place for you. This is a Caribbean island. Things happen. If you're at all reasonable, have any kind of sense of humor, or even just a little sense of adventure -- you'll love it. Checking in was fine, and our bags were taken to our room. We had to put up with the obligatory 'free beverage' which was excellent... I just wanted to get to the room. The main resort is across a 30 foot channel which is crossed via a ferry which is ALWAYS (I mean ALWAYS!!!) attended. The smaller island has the pool, gazebo, docks (there were a LOT of boats over La Semana Santa) and about 5 buildings with rooms. Fushcia was small -- 2 Queen beds, and a bathroom, with a cool indoor/outdoor shower. It is part of a larger building. Picture a central common room that has adjoining rooms. In this way we could have 'upgraded' into having another sitting room, and even into having another set of Queens ('Naranja') on the far side. All of these come at a cost, but seem to allow for lots of flexibility for families, etc... In fact a family was occupying the far bedroom and main room (essentially 2/3s of the building) -- but generally speaking our room was surprisingly quiet and intimate with a separate entrance. We were.. maybe 20 feet from the ocean. There was a nice, private place to sit/sun, and watch the ocean. With the (other) family there, we could sort of see one another, but again, having to share a giant beachfront with 6 people... not too shabby. The resort itself is small. You are not staying at a Marriott. So there isn't a lot to do -- and I wouldn't have it any other way. There's the pool. There are your rooms. There is snorkeling. There's a bar/restaurant. And there's the dive center. To me -- this sounds like heaven, but again if you want "Spring Break" this is NOT your resort. Given it was Easter week a number of 'local' Guatemalans cruised up in their (nice) yachts. So one night dinner was a bit crowded -- meaning we had to wait 5 minutes for Matthew to clear and set up a table. But it was upstairs in a really nice room with a great view. And no one else came up. So it all worked out. (They even have a buzzer upstairs if you need service -- but we never used it). The bar. The bar has numerous 'umbrella' drinks -- all the classics. My first drinks weren't the best. They were good, just not spectacular. But in talking with the various bartenders soon hit upon a good mix and quite enjoyed the pina coladas, a few dirty martinis, and other mixed drinks. The local beer is actually quite good. My favorite was Port Royal, which I preferred to the Salvavida and Imperial -- although all were good/fine. I dove 10 dives, including qualifying for a deep dive (Adventure dive). The staff at the shop 'valet' your gear. In fact they have these excellent wooden stalls where you can keep all your gear -- and put your name at the top. It has a small area that you can lock, but honestly, I never did and never had an issue. The staff Ron, Tex, Sequoy (sorry for the poor spelling!), Chantel, the lady who runs the shop and who's name I now can't remember (Lar????) all were great. The diving was generally amazing. I did particularly enjoy Mary's Place (you should ask to go often as it's a different dive each time -- but can get 'crowded' in the afternoon). We saw morays, trigger fish, angel fish, and literally 1000s of others. The staff like to hunt Lion fish, which are invasive, but when they catch them, sometimes the restaurant will have them as a 'special' that night. The resort also arranged to do a shark dive with a local center. That dive was fine -- but after the TLC Barefoot Cay offered, I was kind of shocked at having to setup my own BC, regulator, etc... "What do you mean I have to work?!" Not a big deal -- just a contrast to the pampering I realized I was getting. My son, 15, dove with us. He contracted Swimmer's ear and actually quickly ran a fever. The staff were helpful with recommendations, and reliable Josh, upon hearing my son's plight, ran me to the La Parmacia for anti-biotics. While that was the end of my son's diving... he soon felt better, thanks to the staff's attention. Every day they inquired, and by the end of the trip he had largely recovered and they all kidded with him. The office. One day my son and I decided to Zip-line and Parasail. The office set everything up (as well as the Shark Dive) or maybe it was the dive-center -- the point is I didn't have to know, they just did it and made it happen. The taxi drivers (Ken, Tony) they had were excellent and gracious. For reasons beyond BFC's control, our Parasailing didn't happen. The driver, Tony, took it upon himself to get us a refund. Each driver also took us to the local grocery store and even made recommendations about various things to purchase. We basically bought snacks and a few drinks, mainly for early morning/late nights when the bar was closed (I tend to be a morning person, son is a night owl). In any case the resort's office, under Stephanie, was an effective, and helpful 'concierge' who took care of everything we could have wished. I also traveled into West End -- and took recommendations from the dive shop on bars to go to. I had a great time and even though it's not like walking around in the States, you have nothing to worry about and everyone was really friendly, particularly if your Spanish is a bad as mine. All in all the resort is a serene, quiet, tranquil place. It's nice for families. Again, if you want waterslides, and yelling, and loud music blaring... THIS IS NOT for you. I wanted a place where I could read, think, dive, and BFC was just exactly that. Oh, the Wifi is effective, but slower than you might be used to. It's fine for email and posting pictures... a bit less so for streaming Netflix or other (you would need a VPN as Honduras is not part of the US Region). That said, it does work, but temper your expectations -- it's not Fiber Optics to your door. It's an island. In the Caribbean. It worked and worked reasonably well, but it wasn't 150M up/down. Besides you're there to reconnect with family, to relax, to read, to see some amazing underwater things... and these are delivered by BFC in spades.

The experience of a Lifetime... Barefoot Cay was beyond expectations. Such a wonderful spot with great service, all smiles, amazing food (try the king crab there), and above all, if you're there to dive, that is the number 1 spot in the island. Best dive shop and the places they took us... it was breathtaking. We tried other dives at different places and the difference was huge. Our beachfront suite was gorgeous, quiet and romantic. Missing it already!

We learned about Barefoot Cay via a recommendation from another family we had met at a resort in Belize. They said if you liked this place, you would love Barefoot. And we did - for the most part. We made the trip with another family, 9 of us in all, and we each rented out one of the 2 bedroom villas for the week. The place is small and very intimate. Most of the time it felt like we had the entire island to ourselves. The service was excellent. Pool/patio/restaurant area is awesome - very well designed.The food was very good- not spectacular. We speared some lionfish and they made the best ceviche with it. Josh and Stephanie in Guest Services were great. They were always helpful when we needed a boat arranged, a car, a fishing trip, a restaurant, you name it. The concept is casual luxury and we felt they delivered. The walk out/swim out snorkeling is pretty good, not world class. However, there are at least two excellent snorkeling spots very close - a 5 minute boat ride. The bugs were bad late week when the winds died down. Our kids had a blast fishing off the many docks. When they got decent sized fish, they asked the kitchen to prepare them for dinner. The staff told me that our kids were like 'island kids' - which I took as a good thing. Thank you Barefoot Cay- we will be back. Next time we will bring a 3rd family, and really take over the island!

We did not stay at the resort but dove with Barefoot Divers (separate review) and ate lunch at Barefoot Cay several times during our three month stay in Roatan. We ordered items from the regular lunch menu and from their Sunday BBQ (open to the public every Sunday noon to 5 pm, with live musical entertainment). The mixed grill ($12) was a large skewer with two pieces each of sausage, beef, chicken, and vegetables, accompanied by a small salad and nachos with cheese and beans. It is quite a substantial dish and, being from Canada (which has the best beef in the world) I was surprised at the good quality of the beef. The Roatan Grill Burger (i.e., Hamburgers made with USDA beef) are large, made fresh, cooked on a charcoal grill and served with lettuce, tomato, bacon, mayonnaise, cheese, and pineapple on a sesame seed bun ($10). It comes with delicious thick home made French fries. I did not like the HotDog ($5), which consists of two thin wieners wrapped in bacon and topped with chopped tomato, onion, and cheese. It also comes with their delicious homecut fries. The large order of Coconut king prawns consists of 12 shrimp served with a sweet chili dipping sauce. Their seafood soup (Sopa de Mariscos), in a coconut milk broth is excellent and if you ask, David may even share his recipe with you. Their Lionfish cheviche ($7) is absolutely wonderful and as I was one of the divers involved in one of the weekly lionfish hunts, I can attest to its freshness. And for dessert, their 'Cay' lime pie is very good ($3). Beer is $2, pop and water are $1. Their home made lemonade (made with fresh limes) is also excellent.
