6/10 Good

The location on West Bay is great! The food at the restaurant is always good. I like the live entertainment at the bar in the evening. I've stayed at this location multiple years and it looks as if the facilities need an update. The ladies at the office are very friendly and check in/check out is smooth. The restaurant and bar were clearly understaffed and there were long wait times for food and service.

4/10 Fair

When I arrived at the property my room was not ready and available, they placed us in a different room because they could not locate the guest that was occupying the room where we were supposed to be accomodated. They placed temporarily in another that had poor AC function. It was very dissapinting overall.

Caribbean vibes makes for great (not cruel) summer
For scuba divers Bananarama is PARADISE. The dive shop is the heart of Bananarama. It’s literally in the middle of the compound. Marcos (an American gone native) runs a great PADI dive shop equipped with new ScubaPro BCDs, regs, fins and wetsuits. New quality equipment? Yes please. Each dive master instructor speaks English and Spanish very well. I dove with Brian, Rolando, Arturo, and Irena over the week and each one was professional, safety focused, and friendly. Bananarama is all about the chill island vibe; authentic Caribbean style with hard woods and sandy floors; mature tropical gardens; a hammock on every porch. The Thirsty Turtle bar and restaurant is excellent and affordable. The wood-fired pizza oven makes pies you do not want to miss no matter where you stay. The hotel and restaurant staff are friendly and attentive. Too bad the rooms have not been maintained like the dive shop. Management take heed; the simple rooms need very little to maintain but you are slacking off. Fix or replace the AC units. Ours broke down twice in 7 days and other guests complained of the same lack of AC. Replace the shower heads. They’re old. Room safes need to work, otherwise don't advertise. Rant over. If you’re a tourist who likes a local feel or a diver interested in West Bay you should immediately book at Bananarama. If you need origami hand towels, flat-screen TVs and a fitness gym do keep looking. I'm sure the rooms will be in tip-top shape when I return next year.
