People tend to do reviews with paragraphs, but see my thought is: why the need to explain in such depth. here's my review:Location: Very private and secluded, and very intimate.Food: Always fresh, awesome variety of all types of food.Room: I can't say enough about them, they were class A and our view was priceless #oceanfront.Amenities: Fantastic, a/c broke down 1 night, we were accommodated with another oceanfront room and the front desk gave us a bottle of wine to compensate for the inconvenience of moving rooms.So overall, my partner and I are heading back sometime this year for sure.#MediaLunaRocksYour GlobetrottersN & GPickering, Ontario Canada
Room: The cabanas are spacious, clean and well appointed. All cabanas have a large varanda with a fan and hamak. Accomodations are lovely. Buffet was good with a freshly prepared local food and pasta section. Desserts are minimal, except for the brownies that are excellent, and the fresh fruits. The dining room is round with several levels that look on to the show and stage area - very nice.Beach - This is a snorkling and diving resort. There is a very small sandy beach area. The snorkling is excellent. The best spot for the snorkling is at the deck area away from the main resort and beach area, close to the diving shop. The reef starts immediately at the shore, so you sit in the warm ocean water, put on your mask and float out, very shallow at this point. You definitely need water shoes for walking along the 'beach area'. Snorklers should not use full length flippers, use the smaller travel size; it's all you need. Divers, it's a great place to get your licence. The people who run the program are very responsible and are masters. You will get the theory part followed by diving part. I'm not a diver, but did go take a ride out to one of their dives and spoke to participants in the program. All of them only had nice things to say about the organizers and staff. As a snorkler, my ride was $25 US dollars and that included 2 viewing areas. There is no alcohol on these rides but they do provide fresh watermelon and water. A big plus of this resort is the snorkling and diving, I can't say enough good things about the wonderful under water wold I witnessed. And because it is primarily snorklers and divers, there is not much drinking and you rarely see anyone who has drunk too much. Entertainment is mostly local and reflects local traditional type dances. If you visit and have a little space in your luggage or don't mind paying for a 1 way ticket on an extra suitcase/box full of stuff for them, the troupe is in desperate need of costumes, makeup, anything that might help them dress up for shows. They literally have nothing but the talent is there. A great first aid kit with tensor bandages and ankle and knee braces might be appreciated, they really have nothing.Internet is good in both the lobby and restaurant. Many visitors were facetiming with family.Overall, our experience was very very good and I am definitely going back!
We traveled to Media Luna Apr 17-24 with Air Transat. To spoil ourselves, we booked Club class seats, and it was totally worth it. Transport to the hotel was on a crammed mini bus, but didn't care. Took 35min, you were given your bracelets, and greeted by animation staff with a cocktail ~ smooth check in. We'd asked for Cabana 126, got 128 right beside, good proximity to the main building, beautiful views of the sea. The room was spacious, lovely king bed with a large bathroom, 2 sinks, shower, bidet and toilet. A/C worked well. Veranda with table, chairs and hammock lovely. The Cabana concept is outstanding.The walkways are indeed bumpy, but this did not affect us. I carried a small flashlight at night to negotiate the stairs down and up to the Cabana door. We brought 2 empty 2L water bottles, which we kept filled for tooth brushing etc. Refill areas at reception and in the resto. Our room was kept super clean. I left the chambermaid $1-2 and a gift each morning on the pillow. (chocolates, creams, body spray etc) 1 morning the safe batteries were dead so it was locked shut. I went to reception, the kind lady there came right back with me, opened it up and pointed out the battery cover had fallen off! problem solved.We're not divers, but the other travelers RAVED about the reef. The ocean was lovely. The resort was not crowded so there was always an abundance of lounge chairs both at the beach, and by the pool. The animation staff are truly engaging, I did aqua gym (thank you ladies ~ I never asked your names) latino dancing ~ FUN, enjoyed the shows, and the general presence of the young entertainment people who work very hard all day long. The grounds are very well kept. I saw the wear and tear on the roofs of some cabanas, but how could there not be? the mature trees and flowers are gorgeous. Just walking around the resort you see birds, iguanas, and even capybara which I had never seen before. The sand fleas didn't seem to bother us too much while there (we used repellent) but upon return we did find bites that got somewhat inflamed. We used calamine and it was ok.It's easy to make friends, we met really nice people. The bar staff were friendly, we brought insulating 'cups' for the canned beer (Strohs) and bubbas for the cocktails. Bar open 9am to 11pm. The drinks were great. (Hi Kenny ~ love Juliana & David...i never got my pic with you!) Behind the bar is a snack area that served fried chicken, fries, corn chips and salsa etc during the day. The food at the buffet was fine. We found something good at each meal, and what was supposed to be hot WAS. The fish was fab. There was good roast pork, beef. Amazing corn tortillas you could put chicken in, or eggs/salsa etc for breakfast. Eggs could be cooked to your liking. Veg & fruit great, nice breads. Our 1 important area for improvement would be A/C in the eating area, or fans or something. It was HOT HOT HOT. We bought a coffee card $10US for 14 ~ we chose cappuccinos. Very tasty. This did not bother us. Although I really do like having 1 whenever I feel like it, as in Cuba for instance. We tipped at the bar and meals according to service. It is not expected, but indeed appreciated.There are 3 wifi routers. The resto, the Winery and the lobby. I was able to upload pics no prob. FB pals jealous!! We took a cab to Cal's Cantina for dinner 1 night. It was awesome, and very close. You pass it on the way to the Resort from the airport. We arranged for this in the lobby. The view at Cal's was spectacular for sunset, and we ate garlic shrimp & friend conch. YUMMY. and a few cold ones, naturally!We hired a private driver for a tour of the island. I had consulted the port schedule for when cruise ships would NOT be docked. Very important, as there can be up to 4/day unloading a few thousand passengers on the West end. We went to Maya Eden (amazing monkeys) Coxen Hole, ate lunch in West End, then had a bucket of beers on the beach at West Bay. The resort offers private tours for $160US. I find this pricy. We were lucky enough to have been given the name of a fellow from someone here in Montreal who has property on Roatan, and it's HIS GUY. He charged us $80 for a full day. SCORE. We really enjoyed our week. Learning about the Garifuna culture was an added bonus. The evening show that featured these drummers & dancers was really entertaining. I would definitely visit again.To my pals in entertainment: Dennis...that music trivia nite MUST have included some BOSSA NOVA!! and Hecir, you make a convincing pirate! Alexander, I don't think my friend Nathalie will EVER forget her birthday dance you provided! Ay Karamba! Thanks everybody!
We spent a week at Media Luna for March Break and I loved it! From the moment we arrived, we were treated very well. Staff are very welcoming and friendly. Check in was smooth, and quick, and our cabana was ready. When we first opened the door to our cabana, we just looked at each other and grinned. What a room! I don't mean luxurious...I mean very comfortable, very clean, and an ideal place to relax at the end of the day. The private patio with a hammock was perfect. I love Caribbean blue beaches, this is not the case in Roatan. But, the water was warm, calm, crystal clear, and I enjoyed hours in the water every day. I brought my own floaty tube and just floated. We had no issues with food. We found the selection was great, and what was supposed to be hot was, and what was supposed to be cold was. We went for the diving. We are not greatly experienced divers (only 6 years now) and we haven't seen a lot of what the Caribbean has to offer, but this is now ranked as our favourite dive location. The dive shop, Aqua Adventures, is wonderful. Sign up, dive, dive some more, maybe a shore dive, boat dive, book the shark dive......whatever you want. You pay before you leave. The more you dive, the cheaper each dive becomes. We did the Prince Albert Shipwreck, a wall dive, shore dive, and the shark dive. All were superb!! The evenings are pretty quiet, some nights had some entertainment, others didn't. This was fine with us.....we're usually pretty beat at the end of the day. We really enjoyed sitting out on our patio with some music playing, or having a few drinks with some other travellers sitting outside the restaurant area. Well, that's about it. No complaints. I truly hope to make it back.....so much to explore, both on land and underwater.
The road into the hotel is mainly unsaved and full of huge potholes,and even though the bus driver did his best to avoid the worst of them, it was truly a kidney rattler. But upon arrival this seems a small price to pay for total enjoyment. Pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and size of the individual cabanas, a great space both inside and out. Could have used a bit warmer water in the shower, tepid at best. Staff were very friendly and most went out of their way to be accommodating. The food was pretty good for an all-inclusive, we esp enjoyed Hondorous night. My only criticism would be the bar drinks, the servers could use a mixology lesson and the drinks menu was very limited and didn't even include the local drink, "monkey la-la".Excursions were overpriced and because this hotel is distant from both the main road and any 'city' you really pay to get out and see the sights. Snorkling was excellent and the beaches were never too crowded. Watch the Sandfleas though, bring lots of insect repellent, esp if you're out at dusk. Overall, good value for the money.
