A Perfect Blend Of Adventure And Tranquility
Five decades ago, we envisioned a small intimate hideaway. A resort with an authentic island experience and embracing the beauty of Caribbean as nature intended. Today, you’ll find that we’ve retained this intimacy — with only 60 bungalows and surroundings reminiscent of a peaceful village.
On your vacation here you may choose to stay in the quiet solitude of a hillside bungalow. Or opt for spectacular ocean views in a bungalow perched along the perimeter of our namesake — Anthony’s Key.
Your favorite afternoon pastime will undoubtedly be lazing in a hammock. But if you’re still feeling energic after a full day’s adventure, you’ll find a variety of water-sports equipment on the key’s small beach. Enjoy an afternoon dip in the swimming pool. Or unwind with a luxurious massage at Ixora Spa.
Back on the main island, is one of our most Instagram-worthy spots. With sweeping views, fiery sunsets, and tucked away in the palm-studded hillside, you’ll find our restaurant and Frangipani Bar. Sip a refreshing cocktail and satisfy your appetite with delicious island fare.
On the dockside, you’ll find the Scuba School, Seaside Gifts & Photos, Photo Roatan, AKR’s Snack Shop, Dive Shop, and the dock with a fleet of state-of-the-art dive boats. A short walk will take you to the Roatan Museum and Roatan Institute of Marine Sciences. There you can sign-up for educational programs and activities with the dolphins at Bailey’s Key.
At Anthony’s Key Resort, you’ll have a vacation with the perfect blend of adventure and tranquility. You’ll have your vacation — your way! Doing as little as you like or as much as you want.
Come, and you’ll find what many have already discovered and why they choose to return year after year.
Management and Staff
The Heart of Our Roatan, Honduras Resort
Anthony’s Key Resort is owned and managed by the Galindo family and has been in operation since 1970. Julio Galindo Sr. (Don Julio) was born and raised on Roatan and his accomplishments far exceed the well-run five-star dive resort that he has managed for more than 30 years. Don Julio and his family have been active in the political, environmental, and social aspects of the Bay Islands for many years. Shortly after Don Julio began his involvement as manager of AKR, he was elected Mayor of Roatan, a position he served for four years. He took a break from politics after becoming sole owner of the resort and under his direction; the resort underwent several large expansions. One of these expansions included the establishment of the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences (RIMS) in 1989.
As a strong advocate for education, research, and conservation, Don Julio has said, “We can no longer take it for granted that our reefs, lagoons, forests, and the life they support can absorb without damage the development the island will inevitably experience. Opportunities for systematic study and research of our habitats should be offered. It is imperative that we preserve what we have.” It is this active interest in the quality of life and environment that put Don Julio back in the political arena once again. In 1990 he was elected Senator of the Bay Islands and was also appointed as Chairman for the Development of the Bay Islands. In 2009 he ran and was elected for mayor and served a four-year term.
His wife, Cheryl Galindo, is also an active member of the community. With the guidance and expertise of the Honduran Institute of Anthropology, Cheryl created the Roatan Museum in 1992, which is housed in the RIMS facility. She served as head of the board of directors for the Bay Islands Conservation Association (BICA), a non-profit environmental organization and she is the founder of the Roatan Bilingual School in Coxen Hole. Managers of the resort and US office are Samir, Haydee, and Julito (May 26, 1966-November 13, 2007), Julio and Cheryl’s sons and daughter. Assisting them is a dedicated staff of more than 200 office workers, groundsmen, housekeepers, kitchen and wait-staff, dive staff, boat crew, repair crew, and security. The staff is extremely friendly and courteous and a great source of stories on island life.
