Mayan Princess Beach and Dive Resort, West Bay
Luxury, North-American style, is what greets visitors to the gorgeous Mayan Princess Beach & Dive Resort, where the enormous lagoon-like cobalt-tiled pool seems to meander through the entire property, and the palm-lined West Bay beachfront is one of the most beautiful on the island.
In these tony surroundings, you might not expect the warm and friendly community of divers who greets you at Mayan Divers, the on-site PADI Five Star Instructor Development Center owned by Anja and Liber Garrido Barnet. Comfort, safety and fun are the buzzwords at Mayan Divers, where the crackerjack staff will make you feel as if they have all the time in the world to hang out and dive with you, all the while running a super-smooth operation that attracts travelers from around the globe.
Mayan Divers also benefits from its fortunate location on West Bay beach, where it’s equally easy to reach most of Roatan’s best sites, including those right at its front door.
“We believe in quality, not in quantity,” Anja says — spend just a little time with her and you’ll know it’s true.
