Buddy Dive feels like home to me, I have been there three times over the last six years. The rooms are simple but comfortable and the housekeeping staff is friendly and great at keeping them clean. I like that each room has a kitchenette which is great for lunch and snacks. I also like that each room comes with a truck and unlimited air for shore dives. The trucks and vans are relatively new and in great condition. You can also schedule boat dives for all those places you can’t reach from the shore. The boats are well maintained and most of the staff is professional and fun to dive with. This year the breakfast was mediocre and the breakfast room was crowded, noisy and very hot. The Buddy shore reef is in good condition and makes for a fun easy dive, day or night. The owner has done a good job over the last couple of years upgrading the grounds but work is still underway. If your goal is to dive, this is the place for you! As they say…eat, sleep and (buddy) dive!!

If you are looking for lively pool parties, buffet meals and rows of beach chairs the Mayan Princess is for you! There is always something going on, the large pool is beautiful and the beach is a great place for swimming and sunbathing. The buffet meals had good variety and I was always able to find something I liked. The two restaurants where you had to make reservations were delicious!! We stayed in a second floor junior suite. It was the size of a small condo with a kitchen, dining room, living room, 2 bedrooms and a large 3/4 bath with a shower the size of most bathrooms. The huge patio is accessed by a sliding door with three parts as if the whole wall opens to the patio and it would be the perfect place for a party, but all this space was wasted on two simple divers. Located amid the great hotels and restaurants of West Bay and just a $3 boat taxi ride to West End. The dive operation is privately owned and run on site and is staffed by very friendly people. We were assigned lockers to store gear overnight and the dive masters loaded and unloaded all our BCDs while we took care of the rest. There is no dock so be prepared to wade to and from the boat each day.

This is my kind of dive resort!! Small yet comfortable with friendly staff who actually get to know you. The rooms were simple yet clean and comfortable. From day one the wait staff knew the names of everyone in our group and the bartender remembered my preferred drink! There is a long beautiful beach on a private lagoon but the sand fleas can be bad so don’t forget your bug spray. This resort is geared mostly for divers but non-divers will enjoy the beach and pool, plus the hotel can arrange shore excursions. The food was excellent! This is a remote location about half way up the island and away from the noise of the west end. If you are looking for a quiet dive vacation this is the place on Roatan.

Located at Turquoise Bay Dive & Beach Resort, Subway Watersports provided me with a great diving experience. The dive shop is professionally managed with a friendly staff. The check in process was well organized and we each had a storage locker for our gear. The dive masters transported BCDs to and from the boat and we brought the rest. Most dive sites were less than 10 minutes from the shop and the diving was easy! You will enjoy a relaxing dive trip with Turquoise Bay and Subway Watersports.

I have known Glen and Karen since 2007. I met them on a trip to Grand Cayman and even though no one in the group knew me, they took me in and treated me like family. I have traveled with them ever since. Karen runs the shop and will do all she can to help you get the gear you need at the best price possible. Glen is a great instructor and really knows how to work with people patiently! The trips they organize are a lot of fun; they have great clients who are fun to travel and dive with, they go to great resorts that are comfortable and you will enjoy beautiful diving while learning about the sea life with daily games and prizes. Even if you live far away from Helena, as I do, you can join their great trips and dive with world!
