Our Air Transat all inclusive vacation package to Media Luna Resort located on Roatan Island was excellent! The facilities, from our personal cabana to the main resort administration, lounge and dining buildings were very nice, clean and comfortable. The exterior grounds were excellent. What made the resort though was the experiences with the excellent staff! Most staff that were in contact with the guests spoke at least 3 languages switching with ease making their guests feel relaxed and comfortable all the time. The staff were very accommodating at all times. The food which was primarily served buffet style was excellent providing numerous dishes with much variety! The beach front was very private and kept quite clean at all times. The huge deck area and 3 beautiful pools were clean and well maintained Aqua Tours, located at this resort provided excellent diving, snorkeling and fishing excursions! My wife and I became PADI certified open water divers. All 3 PADI instructors were friendly, patient and supportive especially our primary instructor Julie Leroux. Thanks to Air Transat, Media Luna Resort and Aqua Tours for a wonderful vacation! There was never a dull moment but still lots of time for Relaxation!
Air Transat Jan 4 - 11. Bumpy 40 minute ride from airport. Media Luna driveway is a disgrace. The resort is small and really quite attractive. A lovely view from the main deck. It really seemed quite uncrowded. Three tiers of loungers, main deck, middle deck and beach. Beach is small and lovely. A little crowded when busy. The weather was terrible so crowding on the beach was not a problem very often. I really really liked the main dining/pavilion/all purpose entertainment hall. No shortage of tables and chairs in, what I thought, was a an attractive and unusual circular arena like layout. Birds and bats share the eating space along with humans. There was plenty of food. The food is plain at best. Breakfast was my favorite meal of the day. Lunch sort of made its way, with various modifications, into dinner. Service was pleasant. Lots of genuine smiles. They are not spineless though. Any complaints are met with a sort of shrug and a "you get what you pay for" attitude. Which you do. The owner/boss is ensconced in the upper right hand corner of the dining hall busily saying NO.By far and away my biggest issue is with the bar. Regardless of price for a vacation this bar is terrible. No smiles and cheerfulness and yadayada yadayada can make up for this blight on the resort. It is awful, ghastly, dreadful, incomprehensible under any circumstances. If you like a few drinks on your vacation this is a "deal breaker". Paper cups for God's sake. Half decent wine and coffee are available at the wine/coffee bar off the main lobby. For a price.Our cabin was ready when we arrived. We didn't like it and they happily changed it to one we liked much better. For the price, I thought the cabin was really nice. Especially the bathroom. It's very humid so watch out for slippy floors in your cabin. There is a refrigerator in the room and you have to keep yourself supplied with water. Each guest is given a bottle of water on arrival. Keep it full. The water is not potable. Our room was clean and bug free. Not so for some of the other guests although i didn't hear any loud complaining. Children seemed to have a lovely time at the resort. Entertainment is not very sophisticated by today's standards but they try hard. Music is never loud or obtrusive and they have a good selection. In my opinion, the chief draw to this place is the excellent snorkeling and scuba diving. The enthusiasts were absolutely not disappointed.
This small resort is about 20 years old and is showing it's age. It may have been a 5 star resort when it opened but it's average at best these days. We visited in mid December of 2017. Apparently this was just before the season gets busy. There were lots of little irritants, here's a few:- Linens and towels were tired and frayed.- There was only one bar and you couldn't get a drink before 11am! - One day they ran out of dark rum!!- The house red wine (on tap) was undrinkable.- Evening entertainment was never posted.We had a lovely ocean front cottage and enjoyed snorkelling on the reef just a 100yards or so from the pier. But next time we'll try the West End area.
We went to this hotel from dec 25th through jan 1st. This hotel is made to relax, to get to the beach, to snorkel from the shore or via the dive center. Yes, there is mosquitoes so bring stuff. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The balcony with the hamac is a place comfortable for reading or finishing a good drink.I recommend for people who are not "prince" or "princess". If you prefer luxury, go to Mexico or Jamaica.
As a family of 5 (parents and 3 children, 21, 19, 17) we just returned from this resort and found the some of the previous reviews to be inflated. The positives:*no resort “games” here. Always tables for dinner, no wait or reservations needed. Always deck chairs, no need to make an attack plan for how to get chairs saved.*private rooms, nice decks, ocean room had an amazing view of water and sunset*beach was small but clean and nice. Good snorkelling and the aqua team was good and intro to scuba was a great experience *secluded, no sales on the beachThe reality:*although we booked the trip as a group requiring 2 rooms close together NO attempt was made to keep us close together. Very inconvenient to be separated as a family. Even after others had left and rooms opened up we could not be accommodated *phones in rooms didn’t work, assured by transit rep “Harold” they would be fixed next day. Nothing happened*man at front desk was cold and unhelpful. Booking a la carte dinner, room concerns, all brushed off*drinks...tequila sunrise made with Fanta pop. Enough said*food...repetitive and not fresh. Omelettes were the freshest thing we ate all day*water... felt like we were stranded on a desert island and had to scavenge for drinking water. 1 small water bottle per person supplied and required patrons to refill them on their own from water jugs located in main building. Highly recommend the resort at least sell reusable water bottles in the overpriced gift shop.*entertainment crew was nice and not overbearing. Wait staff was ok, good at clearing used dishes, but expect to get your own drinks/coffee *rained everyday, sometimes all day and there is little/nothing to do at the resort during these times. Luckily we brought cards
