Media Luna Resort and Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The resort was beautiful. We absolutely loved the cabañas and the size of the resort - located on the east side of the island, Media Luna is a large contrast from the West side with the busy beaches and vast amount of tourists, but offered trips to that side if desired. We opted to hire a private guide/car for the day which was well worth it. The food was basic, not much to write home about. Those with allergies will find the selection was minimal, as was the local cuisine offerings. However, the staff were friendly, the condition of the resort was good, and the rooms amazing. Just need to add a coffee maker and some drinks in the fridge and they would be prefect.Notes: 1. Bring bug spray, though the small shop on site sells it2. Pack your bathing suit in your carry-on as well as your towel. Rooms are not ready until early afternoon (normal) but they will not let you check in and get a towel until your room is ready. Strange but true. So you sit and sweat in the heat, or plan to drip dry in your bikini until you can officially check in.3. Celiacs, pack snacks! I always bring food just in case, and it was needed.4. Spend the extra money for the ocean or beach views, the other cabañas look onto the less attractive back sides of the cabañas in front
Where to start... The food was simply fresh and 5 star worthy. Staff was really friendly, but Denis Funez and the entertainment staff really shined with their organization and quality of activities. The only small problem was the bugs but thats it. View was amazing.
We stayed at Media Luna as part of a 2 week “Duo” – one week here and the second week at Henry Morgan Resort, in West Bay (reviewed separately).We were greeted at the airport by Canadian ex-pat volunteers and by Transat representatives. Transportation to the resort was in small mini-vans; a bit cramped and the air conditioning was not working all that well, but it was a pretty drive along roads that can be bumpy at times, but that it part of the adventure. Media Luna is a hidden gem. Accommodation is in separate cabanas that are quite spacious. Ours had 2 comfortable queen sized beds, a spacious bathroom with 2 sinks, shower, toilet and bidet, and a large deck with hammocks and 2 outside chairs and 1 table. There was a flat screen TV, with some English channels, small fridge and in room safe. Air conditioning worked well and there was a ceiling fan as well. Although not 5-star accommodation, we had everything we needed, it was comfortable and very clean. As is typical in the Caribbean, no facecloths are provided, so if you need to have them, bring your own. I also travel with a universal drain plug as sink drains often don’t work, as was the case with one sink in our room. Tap water is not potable. 2 small bottles of water are provided in the room and you fill them up, as needed, at water stations in the lobby and the restaurant. I would recommend bringing a couple of extra water bottles with you to fill as well. Views are fantastic. The grounds are very pretty and well maintained. The beach is small but clean and the snorkeling is amazing. There is one large pool and 2 smaller ones, also clean. Lots of chaises in various locations – no need to reserve. Pool towels are readily available. Bar is open 9 am to 11 pm. Staff are amazing; very accommodating. Restaurant is very pretty and the food is very good. Lots of fruit and vegetables, lots of bread, rice, fresh tortillas, fries. Generally chicken pork or fish; not a lot of beef. Never went hungry. We were not enamoured of the bottled beer – only one available, and it was from the Netherlands; wine was ok. Connoisseurs can purchase bottles of wine or cans of other brands of beer at the WineryAnimation staff are fun and encourage participation, but are not pushy. There is nightly entertainment, which ends at 11pm. No late night party crowd here. The resort is quite remote, so no shops in the immediate vicinity. There are some nice excursions to take. There are spa services, which I used and was actually quite impressed with quality of the service. Free wi-fi available in the lobby and the restaurantI would highly recommend staying at Media Luna
This resort suits our family perfectly. Not a party place and a bit remote. Other parts of Roatan and other resorts can get taken over by Cruise visitors 4 or 5 days of the week, but not Media Luna.Simple but very good food. Always lots of salad choices, fresh fruit, chicken, fish etc. And an omelette station in the mornings. Not much more you need.Rooms were clean and well maintained. The resort is only 7 years old but they are already starting to reno some of the cabanas as the sea air is so hard on things. If they stay on top of it, this resort will remain a slice of heaven.The off-shore snorkelling is the best we have seen anywhere in the world!Nightly entertainment is limited but you make your own fun and the karaoke night was a big hit.The Spa is not up to snuff yet. Last year it was really bad. This year they moved it into a house at the end of the property but we gave it a pass. Looked a bit sketchy and the prices for a massage were pretty high considering they were not offering a true spa experience.Have a wonderful onsite dive operation called Aqua Adventures. Our two daughters finished their Open Water Certification with them and then we did some lovely dives. Amazing staff at Aqua Adventures. (See separate reviews for Aqua Adventures.)
We had a great room, very large and very clean. Resort is very nice, it is well maintained, quite lush in terms of vegetation. The staff is WONDERFUL, they are all very hard working, friendly, helpful and dedicated. The beach although not large is nice, you can snorkel right from the beach and the dive shop, or can dive from the dive shop.The food is good but a bit repetitive. Maybe there is a shortage of North American food, there is a heavy representation of Latin food. I don't know what percentage of the clientele is North American compared to other nationalities, the management would know that. Three airplanes from Canada come in every week, so that seems quite substantial. Maybe that warrants a more balanced menu. The fish and chicken dishes were consistently excellent.The tour company offers an opportunity to take a minivan to go out to different restaurants, it might be a good idea to try that to get more change in the food.
