Comments I took a group to Fantasy Island 10 years ago and was unhappy with it. Since then I've taken groups to different resorts in Roatan 5 other times. A special low price brought me back with just my daughter for a get-away and I was very pleased with the improvements. They make a great effort to keep the insects down, particularly the no-see-ums, which are bad overall on the island. They spray, rake and drag a plow over the sand to disturb the eggs. I quit using repellant after 3 days and had only 4 insect bites the whole week. Optional shark dive offered through another outfit, but coordinated with F.I. was a huge success with a good 2 dozen grey reef sharks within touching distance, making for great photo ops. Good food served buffet style. Clean, motel style rooms with air cond. and TV. Would I return?....You bet!
