What a great location to come diving, relax on the beach, and enjoy a few cocktails with a fantastic view of the sunset.

I like a little more comfort and I did not feel this place was. It was very crowded on the beach when the cruise ships were in. At times it was overwhelming with the local people selling their goods. The food and bar were excellent. Staff was excellent as well.

The staff there are excellent.my home away from home.for the best monkey lala in the Island see Sandra at the bar.

The Bananarama is a great option if you are on a budget. Affordable hotel, the rooms could be a little better (restroom quite plain, it got clogged couple of times, both the shower and the toilet), but overall the room was clean and in general comfortable. You have several options to eat within the hotel, in the beach, and that's a great plus, it's just a grill bar, a pizza place and a nice upscale italian, so you have basically really god options on site, no need to go out and look. The main plus of the hotel is the diving shop within it. It's excellent, fantastically managed by Marco, very serious, and he keeps it small, so you have the luxury of being diving in small groups. Priceless!!

We were picked up at the airport by the hotel shuttle and delivered to the facility quickly. Check in went well and we were soon having a cold brew. The rooms are very sparse, no TV's or phones. Really not needed though as we were in the room very little. The restaurant is right in front and beach facing. Service is excellent and prices are competitive. The dive shop treated us very well and diving experience was exceptional, Marco has a great team.

Shout out to bartenders Javier and Harlon. They were really great. Super nice people and they took jokes and playful harassment the people in my party dished out. They made the experience wonderful and fun. This is not a fancy place but is on the beach and had everything I needed. Bottled water in rooms.

Great food and portions for the price. On the beach with good location. Can get a bit too much with the vendors when a cruise ship is in as ship passengers arrive. Staff is great but can be a bit slow at times to acknowledge you. Room was comfortable and clean.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are more rustic but the food at the restaurant was very good and the wait staff is amazing. Free breakfast is great and the dive center is on property and you can walk out to train or dive. Very convenient. If you only snorkel - you are in luck. Amazing snorkeling right off the beach just steps away. Plenty of activities and things to keep you busy for a week. Walking distance to shopping etc. I definitely recommend this to anyone. The beach area is beautiful here and the weather is terrific!

Hello and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thankful you chose to stay with us here at Bananarama and are happy to hear your vacation, for the most part, was enjoyable! Cruise ship days can get relatively busy around the entire West Bay area due to the high volume of sudden visitors. Our staff always has chairs and a private area put aside for guests and we hope you took advantage of those! We apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused during your stay! We wish you the best and hope to see you again, warm regards.
