Great location, amazing food and friendly staff. had dinner there many times on our trip and loved it! our servers were very friendly and love to sing ! there are many activities nearby as well, there is a dive shop just next door!
Spent a week on the lovely island of Roatan in the beautiful Xbalanque resort for a yoga retreat. Everything about the space at the resort and the accomodations including the staff was remarkable. Such a special treat to have everything from beautiful surroundings, unique and spacious areas and friendly helpful people. Truly a gem all around.
The staff, the food, the massage, the painting class, the kayaking, paddle boarding, pool, clean and quite beachfront, the rooms and the YOGA tree top pavilion.....all top notch. This was our first time here as a group of yogis and it was beyond every expectation. Xbalanque is located in the West End and has a gorgeous quiet beachfront. Ronny, Genesis, Michael, William, Cindy, Jose, Randy....etc etc all staff were just incredible, polite and attentive. I cannot say enough about this place. I almost don’t want to write this review because it’s a secret gem. Patsy, the owner, was so responsive and truly so welcoming. If you visit beautiful Roatan. Xbalanque is a must!!!!
Xbalanque is as perfect a place as they come. Patsy, the owner, brings her southern charm to Roatan. Her staff is personable, loving and accommodating - from the bartenders to the grounds staff to the front desk. They make it as if you are at home. The food is sublime - the traditional Honduran food (ridiculously awesome), the fried green tomatoes, the breakfasts (the baleada for breakfast OMG)!!! The facility and accommodations are easy and comfortable; we did a snorkel excursion on the owners boat which was perfection, they have an amazing yoga studio in the woods and great beach presence! Cannot wait until my next trip to Xbalanque ❤️
Stayed at Xbalanque for a quick 24 hours before catching a flight back to the US (after spending a week in Guanaja). Original plan was to stay at a property closer to the airport for the night, but we were convinced by a new friend who we met during our travels (thanks Allistair!!!) that we needed to stay in West Bay. After reading reviews, my wife and I decided to give Xbalanque a try. Ended up being a great decision. Easy pickup at the airport (and drop-off) included in the rate. At check-in we were informed that they upgraded us to an ocean view room. Hotel feels very Asian/Bali themed, which we loved and felt like it was executed well. The room was massive and is really much more like a luxury apartment than a hotel room. Full kitchen with everything you would need to cook and serve a family meal, full washer and dryer, massive balcony with great views, great bed, huge bathroom and shower, strong air conditioners. The pool/bar/restaurant area was fantastic. Ate lunch/dinner/breakfast in the restaurant and never had a bite that we didn't love. Our two favorite items were the lobster wrap at lunch and the lobster risotto for dinner. The property has ample lounging locations around the pool and on the two private docs. They also have complimentary kayaks and SUPs to get out on the water with. Overall, very impressed with this property and will be staying again at Xbalanque in the future!!!…
