The boat rides are short, so change of film and batteries on shore.  Each
boat has a special rinse tank for cameras.  Dry area over engine for
delicate storage.  They have no current photo developing, although there is
talk for the future.

If you are traveling to Roatan and looking for the road less traveled then
give The Inn of Last Resort some consideration.  We love this place!!  This
was our fourth trip in 4 years and will be back for #5.  ILR is a small
resort that provides everything a diver could want, Great diving (of
course), 3 meals a day, large clean room, privacy and space to relax,
beautiful sunsets nightly, blue skies (weather permitting) and blue water.

The diving is 3 single tank dives daily, with the boat leaving at 8:30,
10:30 AM and 2:00PM.  Boat rides are generally 10 – 15 minutes
with a 2-tank boat dive weekly.  Dives are generally lead by a DM, but if
it is a moored dive you can go off on your own.  This trip there were more
divers than we had experienced in the past, but the boat was split up with
2 DM’s, so the groups were small and staggered getting in and out
of the water.  Boats are large and spacious.  Plenty of room for storage. 
Fresh water and fruit on the dives.  DM's and Cpt's helpful and fun.  The
reefs are healthy and teaming with life.  We prefer to go slow, the macro
life should not be missed.  There were plenty of turtles (almost daily),
Eagle Ray, Sting Rays and Green Morays.  If you have the opportunity dive
the videographer Pablo, he does wonderful video and finds lots of

The resort itself is lush with vegetation.  Trees and plant life surround
the four buildings.  The guest rooms are large with queen and 2 twin beds. 
They also have AC and 2 ceiling fans for comfort.  The lagoon is a short
walk and provides great snorkeling as well as a quiet place to read or just
relax.  The food is great!!  Homemade rolls daily by Casper.  They are able
to accommodate dietary restrictions as well.  New addition this year is
Internet access that you purchase minutes for.   Several dogs roam the
resort which kind of give it an at home feel, since we leave pets back
home.  They also have monkeys and parrots.  All the staff is friendly and
helpful.  Have a problem, just let them know and every effort will be made
to correct it.
Don’t know what else I can say, but give it a try.  If you like
small and quiet, ILR is a great find.
