We can't say enough good things about Fantasy Island.  We had our
reservations about going after reading about the bug problems, complaints
about food and accomodations.  The resort, food and dive operation were all
outstanding.  The rooms are basic but immaculately clean.  The food was
always a variety of meats, fish, veggies, fresh made breads and rolls,
fresh fruits and the most beautiful and delicious deserts.  Thursday night
was a hit with lobster night.  The waiters were attentive and so pleasant
and friendly (especially Lenny at dinner).  Our dive crew, Boat Captain
Pedro and DM Mark Washington were probably the best we ever dove with. 
Mark was unbelieveable at finding stuff for everyone to see.  On just about
every dive he found a seahorse or two!  They will set up your equipment
between dives but they make sure you have no objection to them doing so. 
We didn't see any big stuff but the corals and sponges made up for that. 
The walls and reefs were absolutely breathtaking.  I don't think I have
ever seen such beautiful corals.  The tube and barrel sponges were the
largest I've ever seen.  Some of the barrel sponges were big enough to get
into.  The resort is just a beautiful setting with lush foliage and
immaculate grounds.  The crew was always out at 5:30 A.M. raking the beach
and sprucing up the grounds.  The beach itself was magnificent.  As for the
bugs -- they were non-existent during our visit.  I usually come home from
a trip with bites all over me so we brought plenty of sprays.  This trip we
didn't need any -- perhaps just the right time of the year.  The added fun
to Fantasy Island is all the wildlife on the grounds.  Ducks, bats and best
of all, monkeys were a blast.  Our only complaint would be Roatan Airport. 
They have to get their act together with getting everyone through
ticketing, departure tax payment and immigration.  We can't wait to go
