I enjoyed everything about Paya Bay. I stayed 10 days and had a blast enjoying nature, the sea, snorkeling, the fabulous people who own and run Paya Bay and their dogs. Rooms, food and activities - all excellent. If you enjoy a get away and low key place Paya Bay is it. Gail

It's been many years since I last had the opportunity to visit Roatan unfortunately, so I cannot speak to the many very apealling looking updates have been made here. What I can speak to though is the amazing location, attentive and willing service by the owners and the sense of being in a place un spoiled by external influences. I...

We spent an R and R week during this recent off season and found the spot to be quite lovely with nice beach front and grounds. The recent addition of the yoga studio perched up above the trees overlooking the sea and sunset is awesome. The resort is out on the East end which is very undeveloped and isolated. So...

A group of us just returned from Roatan on a class trip. We were lucky to stay at Paya Bay for the duration of our time there. The people there were very friendly and eager to help us and answer our questions. We participated in yoga most nights at sunset with Davi, Tom took us snorkeling many times, and Charlotte...

I cannot find a better word to describe here, because everything is just wonderful. I spent one week here during September. When I got off the van, I was surprised about what I saw, I didn't believe that was real-- the sea was so beautiful and the hotel was just by the sea. Everthing was like in a painting. The...

We spent 2 nights in this delightful place. We stayed in a cliff side room which was exactly that with the ocean crashing on the rocks right below. Paya Bay has maybe one of the nicest beaches in Roatan. It was fabulous. The property also has a swimming lagoon and has numerous trails throughout that take you to some beautiful...

My wife and I spent 7 beautiful days at the resort this past June/July. The property offers the ultimate relaxation as it is at a very serene location away from the hussles of resort places. The meals, from breakfast to dinners, were excellent. We rated them higher than what you get at a 5 star restaurant in the USA! Although...

Our visit in early May, 2012 was a wonderful experience. The Naturist theme was as promised with CO accepted within the entire resort save for the restaurant. The trails and grounds were a great place to wander and observe. Bliss Beach may be the best CO beach in the Caribbean. The food in the restaurant was cooked to order and...
