Comments Accomodations were fine, we stayed in a cabana on the water without AC, it was fine, plenty of breeze pushing through, but it was warm. The scuba storage area by the boats was where the no see-ums were, so after a dive when you had nothing on was when we were eaten up by the bugs, other than that, it wasn't too bad. We heard about all the problems with people getting sick before we booked and decided to take our chances anyway. I didn't hear of anyone having a problem while we were there. The staff is aware, and seem to try to make things as sanitary as possible. Beware if you like to eat healthy food. Food tended to be greasy and/or slathered in mayonaise. For a tropical resort, I think they should have had more fresh fruit options on the table. Hotel staff was excellent. There are very few sharks around roatan, but there is one outfit that does a shark dive (about $75) This was well worth it and very professionally run. It can be arranged from any of the major resorts on the island. Skip the optional boat night dive ($20 extra) and do your night diving from shore, there's all kinds of stuff on the local walls and shipwreck infront of the resort.
