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.

We usually go every year to St. Martin every April. This year, due to Irma, we switched to Roatan. The Resort is sweet; great rooms; decent food, great people, but the infra-structure is a mess. Enough rain the the first 2 days to seriously hamper going anywhere on the island the rest of the trip...and, when we could go, there is really not much to see. The switch in Houston, as with any plane switch, doubles the time to get really any plane change to go anywhere does. It is a scuba divers destination, as it shares the barrier reef with Belize. It is the cash cow for Honduras, is a political mess right now...but it is far enough off the coast (approx. 70mi.) not to be of any concern. We would only consider going back if they put on direct flights...maybe. You do not rent a car. Period. Hire a driver to go anywhere...they stay and wait while you do whatever you do, no matter how long. Not expensive.

Stay: 4/14-4/21/2018 Air & Transport: American 1/week Saturday flight from DFW. Barefoot took care of transport to and from! Pre-stay questions: Stephanie was quick to respond to any and all questions we had. After seeing a segment on NBC news on the topic, we asked Stephanie if there were any local charities that could use some supplies from the US and she had two great charities to suggest. We brought some children medicine for a local clinic and got some donations from my office for a local educational charity there! So happy to help! Why Barefoot? We initially were going to stay on the west side. We’d read that’s where you should stay, but, because of an error, suggested Barefoot as an alternative. We are SO happy with how things ended up. More below. Diving: We ended up booking at Barefoot and decided to get scuba certified before we came. So glad we did. Barefoot’s dive shop was very accommodating to our beginner status … and any level diver, really. Everyone we met had a great dive. The team made sure, no matter the weather as well (as it rained a few days), we would go to a spot that would be a great dive. The first two days we attended the 8:30 am dive, then every day thereafter we were on both morning dives. They made sure we stayed hydrated and always enjoyed the watermelon on the (super short) rides back to the shop! Accommodations: Awesome, awesome, awesome! We were in the cottage and it was so relaxing, and so quiet! I’m so glad we didn’t stay on the “west-side,” as I’m sure we wouldn’t have had as many quiet afternoon naps as we did here. The rain may have made some bugs come in one night, and the staff was quick and friendly to help us ‘raid’ them out, while not harming any cute geckos that I’m aware of 😊 . Food & Drink: We opted for the meal package and glad we did. They had a set menu, and it had enough options for us to be happy with it for a week, even when I couldn’t enjoy some of the items with my bivalve allergy. We focused on diving the entire week, so we really didn’t get out much otherwise. Water was filtered and I drank from the tap and used my toothbrush in the faucet and all was well with my sensitive stomach. Activities Other than Diving: We did leave to visit the sloth sanctuary, which was not far from Barefoot. It was great, and they arranged a taxi for us to take us there and back. We did not go out at night; not really our thing. Others that stayed at Barefoot used the kayaks, brought their fishing poles, some of the kids did their own “Bubble Certificate” where they got to wear the diving gear in the pool, others went out in the evening, did ziplining… and everyone had a smile on their face. Really cool things: Barefoot gives you a cell phone that you can use in the room or even take with you if you go out. As I usually get confused with international plans and technology in general, I really appreciated this and thought it was a great idea!

We recently stayed at the Barefoot Cay Resort and really enjoyed ourselves! Gary, the property manager and his wife offer a very personable service and even brought the guests homemade treats like chocolate chip cookies and frozen banana treats on few occasions. They have a few dogs on the property and they make frequent appearances greeting the guests! The rooms were very nice and had the BEST mattress & bedding I have ever slept on in a hotel! All the staff were very helpful and went out of their way to accommodate your request. There were a few negatives however. There really isn't much of a beach and it is very remote with no where to really walk to if you are into that. So If you want to lounge by a pool at a small, boutique hotel, this is the place for you! I also need to mention the infamous Roatan Sand Fleas. They are a problem. To BFC's credit, they spray for them multiple times a day and will do more upon request, but they are everywhere. Even at the pool. Bug spray didn't seem to help much.

We stayed here for 8 nights and couldn't have been happier. It was windy while there, so we ended up diving at Westend and only snorkeling here. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The room was nice. The only drawback of the restaurant is that you must order in advance. But te food was excellent.

A resort like many others that cater to divers of which we are not. We were looking for seclusion, quiet, sun and we found it here. No vendors. This is your private little island you share with 3 other cabins. All of which set on the sea shore. The ocean breeze thru the windows day and night. The food at the restaurant was amazing. The supper entrees are prepared specifically and without a doubt some of the best food on the island. Beef Caprisso is to die for! I promise! The entire staff did everything the could to make it an outstanding stay and they succeeded greatly. Get the Romance Package added on for sure. You will be glad you did. You are going to love this place, we did!
