Great resort in beautiful settings, which is run very professionally. The staff is very friendly. The super deluxe room/ hut we stayed in was beautiful. Very spacy and Comfortable. Great verandah with 2 hammocks to chill out and watch the sunset. The food was excellent with a good variety. Beautiful pool; nice entertainment. The grounds are kept clean and immaculate. The dive shop is run professionally and organized. Dive boats are in great shape. Some dive masters are better than others. My favorite was Marvin. The dolphin dive one has to pay extra for was disappointing. Spend too much time above water to get to learn things about the dolphins in general. The shark dive, on the other hand, is a must: EXCELLENT!!!!! Diving in general: not the best dive sides in the world, but still nice. Careful with biting sand flees if you go to the Maya Resort lunch experience. Make sure you are covered in insect repellent!!!! The hospital on the side has a very good doctor. There is also a decompression tank if needed. Overall experience in AKR: Excellent. I will recommend it anytime! Thank you, everybody, at AKR to have made it a great experience. Kiki Herz, March 2015, San Diego, CA

Hello, I would like to say AGAIN how much we enjoy and value our stays at AKR! Your resort has become my home away from home! We will be arriving for our 8th consecutive year next month! All of you are fantastic people and I enjoy every moment of the resort and roaming the island!!! Thank you isn\’t enough! Serena, October 4th, 2014, Kansas City, Missouri, USA

Great Dolphin Encounter, our dolphin was Mr. French. Only wish we had done the Dolphin Swim and Snorkel excursion, well we will just have to go back to do it. Very Beautiful Resort would love to stay there for a week instead of just visiting for the day. :-)Julie Murray & Sean Jones,California, USA, September 20, 2012

The Staff is amazing…the resort, outstanding. Everything so well organized. The meals, 5 star….if someone could tell Timmy the Bartender THANK YOU SO MUCH for the island music cd\’s….we are sitting at home on the patio enjoying them so much. And Tell Raul, we have him on video dancing away..precious memories of precious people!!! What an awesome staff and place! Thank you so much for everything!!Dane Colbert/Patty Burton, ST. Louis MO, Aug. 25 – Sept. 1, 2012

My daughter & grandson had come for one fantastic holiday and the following year they asked me to go with them. Everything about your resort was wonderful with friendly, helpful staff, terrific staff in dining room, snorkeling with 2 well-experienced captains and one even took me snorkeling a couple of times with a tether so that I would not float away and so I could relax and enjoy it even more. A dream holiday marred only by the fact that I had caught a virus in Canada so that even though I pushed myself to the limit so as not to miss anything, I would love to come back and have even more fun than I did before…..and also to be able to eat more of the great food you offer. We stayed on the key, loved every minute of that for sure and had such a good time in the pool every evening before dinner. This resort is even for the older people like me who did not scuba dive. I entered the newsletter subscription and am hoping so much that I win!! Thank you to all at Anthony\’s Resort – the best holiday ever. Judy Haig, June 24th, 2012 Ontario, Canada

As usual AKR was wonderful! Having been going there off and on for 16 years. Always bring a group. Food was fabulous…staff is friendly and very, very friendly and helpful. Our dive master, Sherwin and boat captain, Jimmy went above and beyond during the dives. Sherwin showed us a part of Spooky Channel that we have never been to in the past. Jimmy, bartender, was extremely friendly and fun. Only thing bad is the sand fleas….lots of bites, but it is still worth it to go there! Penny Presuto, June 17th, 2012, Placerville, CA

This was my first time here and it was beyond awesome!!! Lake Superior Divers Supply has been coming to dive here for 40 plus years and I can see why. Awesome Staff, Awesome diving, Awesome place!! I will be planning many more trips here. Sarah Cheetham, May 22nd, 2012, Duluth Minnesota

Had a wonderful time with the Dolphin Encounter. Our dolphin was Maury, who was pregnant at the time. Kids were wondering if she had her baby yet? Don Cambron, April 26th, 2012, Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee

I was able to have an encounter with Anthony, the 6 year old dolphin that I will remember for the rest of my life! Thank you for providing an environment that allows the dolphins, too, to have options. I will continue to talk about your resort with anyone who\’ll listen! Christine Webb, March 23rd, 2012, St. Petersburg, Florida

Thanks you all for a wonderful time. Everyone at your place is wonderful from the groundskeepers to the front desk staff. The accommodations are very nice and very comfortable. The divemaster John and boat captain Kenlee were great. Very helpful and could not do enough for us. Craig Buente, March 15th, 2012, Indianapolis, Indiana

My husband and I stayed at your place for our honeymoon back in 1998…it was great! Gorgeous place…great accommodation…wonderful people! I would love to come back with my family including our two children…@Haydee Galindo, don\’t know if you remember me..I am Cinzia from Italy…we also booked our hotels in Orlando and Miami through your agency…you are such a nice person. Cinzia Spampinato, February 27th, 2012, Catania, Italy

Wonderful trip. I just returned and had a great experience. They exceeded my expectations. The dive shop is the best-run shop I have ever dove with. It\’s very clear that they know what divers need, want, and desire. Everything has been thought through I can couldn’t think of anything they could have done better. They have dive lockers right off the boat, so you don’t have to lug your equipment around the resort. You get assigned to a boat (including boat capt and dive master). This allowed you to get to know them and then you as well as your fellow divers. They have a chalkboard system that allow tells you when all the dives are for the day and you can choose to sign up for as many as you desire. The only downside is now I experience them and fear future trips to new locations will not measure up. All the staff was extremely accommodating & friendly. You didn\’t have to cary any $ the whole week which was nice, everything was billed to your account, and only do tips at the end. The only suggestion I would have is better wifi. It was dependable and always available but when a number of people were all on (many doing skype) it got bogged down. I think this has more to do with their telco and less to do with AKR. Thanks for a wonderful vacation, I was great. Ryan McCabe, February 5th, 2012, Minneapolis MN

I went alone on a much-needed vacation, and I came home with a bookful of friends! The diving was extraordinary. I loved the two wrecks, the dolphin snorkel and the shark dive. The crew of the Nicolas, Jimmy and Hector were awesome. I will definitely come back. Carmen Tozzo, January 23rd, 2012, Williston, Florida

Didn\’t think we could love the resort any more than we did the 1st time we stayed, we were wrong loved it more the 2nd time! David & Dianna Jones, January 16th, 2012, Lake Jackson, TX

Very beautiful, special people … and great dive. Franklin Junqueira, January 4th, 2012, São Paulo, Brazil

I had the most wonderful experience on my very first dive ever! The instructors were superb and were so patient and thorough. Always, watchful and commending improvement. I cannot wait to schedule an all-inclusive trip…hoping for my 50th birthday this year in March!! Leslie Stapleton, December 30th, 2011, Dallas, Texas

My Boyfriend and I came out and did the Dolphin excursion while on a cruise.. I have to say this resort is hands down the most beautiful place I have ever been.. we were able to meet Bailey the Diva and she was fun and energetic. I\’m hoping that this will be the destination we pick for our honeymoon!! LOVE THIS PLACE Nicole Spicer, December 13th, 2011, San Diego, CA

Just got home from AKR- Oct. 29- to Nov 5th-although it is the rainy season–everything was still great. Dove in the rain and still had fun. Sun came out Wednesday. Unbelievable service, food, and diving. Thank you Kevin, Hector, Larry, Williams, JoJo, Frank, and John. Our group had a blast and loved every minute we will be back as soon as we can. From: Sheri, Trish, Ed, Gene, Arnold, Trish, Shelley, Chris and Kim, November 6th, 2011, Deer Park, Texas

Just returned home from a 7 day cruise on the Norwegian Spirit. I made two dives with Anthony\’s Key in Roatan, and two dives in Belize. The crew at Anthonys were far more friendlier than the crew in Belize. The dive master was very knowledgeable, and went above and beyond pointing out various sealife. Being a new diver with only 27 freshwater dives, I will always remember rounding the corner on the reef and seeing the shipwreck (The Eagle) 50 feet below. Thanks to the crew (I\’m bad with names!), and I will be back! Wayne Tadlock, August 7th, 2011, Huntsville, AL

This was the BEST!! I went on a 2 dive excursion from Carnival cruise. It was not nearly enough. I WILL be back for a week next time.If you get a chance to go there I highly reccomend it. Great staff What an amazing place!! David Franklin, July 18th, 2011, El Paso, Texas

Thanks AKR for the best vacation. Could not had been better.You guys rock! We\’ll be back! Thomas Hartlage, July 6th, 2011, Louisville, Kentucky

Actually stayed here for one week in 1987 on an Army R&R trip and I have to say, that to this day, my memories of this wonderful resort and the staff are as vivid as they were one week after I returned to mainland Honduras. It was the vacation of a lifetime and a return visit is at the top of my bucket list. If you are considering a tropical vacation don\’t look any further; Anthony\’s Key Resort and West Bay Roatan is where you want to go. Trust me you\’ll never forget the experience. Benjamin Dover, June 8th, 2011, Austin, Texas

It was our first trip as divers and picked the best place to stay in the world!!! If you go ask for Joe Joe for your boat driver!!! The best there is!!!! All the staff was great and a special shout out to Greg the guy who helps with the bags!!! He is the best!! Thanks AKR for the time of our lives!! Steven Sullivan, May 24th, 2011, Arlington Heights, IL

Best vacation ever! We are already planning our next visit 2 years from now. We had the best divemaster and boat captain, John and Kenly. John was great to point out sealife we would have missed otherwise! The friendly staff at AKR make the week carefree. We loved it! Kevin and Lee Ann Briley, May 17th, 2011, Winters, Texas

I cant wait, once again very anxious to get there. this will be our 3rd time, and we are bringing 12 friends with us this time. Share the fun. Anthony\’s Key is amazing!!! see you next week. Marvin here we come! London Vroom, May 16th, 2011, Pinellas Park, Florida

The most amazing place I have stayed! Besides the diving, the staff was amazing and always had a smile! Thank you for a great vacation with great memories!! Jodi, April 18th, 2011, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Took 200 u/w photos on a two tank trip! This was my 50th year of scuba diving and AKR rates at the very top of diving in the Caribbean…the very,very top. Great staff; professional, and the spur & groove sections of the barrier reef are pristine. I can\’t stop talking about it. John Baker, April 17th, 2011, Lakewood Ranch, Florida

Dove 6 days off the dive boat Isamor with Kenley as boat captain & Marvin as dive master. Absolutely the best anywhere. Did 21 dives in 6 days with 2 night dives. All dive sites at Anthony\’s Key were excellent. Thanks for a wonderful dive vacation. James Cox, March 18th, 2011, Manhattan, Kansas

Amazing week amazing food amazing staff amazing divemaster and boat caption Marvin and Corvin everything was amazing we will be back. Alana Schikor, March 14th, 2011, London, Ontario, Canada

While we did not stay at Anthony\’s Key we wanted to leave a comment anyway. Our underwater camera sprung a leak on our first day in Roatan. We went to every dive shop in West End looking for some sort of repair or shop to buy a new one. We were finally told to go find Ceasar at Anthony\’s Key. Ceasar was not around, but one of you employees gave us his phone number. We rang and Ceasar answered and was very helpful and very concerned about helping us with the problem. He was not able to come to Anthony\’s in the moment, but he walked us through dismantling the camera, rinsing it, etc. His directions worked great!!! Our camera is back to new! We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated Ceasar\’s help. You have a great employee in Ceasar – he clearly cares!!! When we come back to Roatan, we are going to Anthony\’s Key!!! Taunya Bruns, March 8th, 2011, Boulder, CO

Hi Guys, 18 dives in 6 days……priceless. From the time we arrived at the airport to the time that we checked back into the airport to leave, we were well taken care of. The divemasters, captains, dive shop staff and, of course, the waiters, water taxi guys, house keepers and admin staff were always available, helpful and smiling. We will consider coming back another time, however, wining a free 7 days would be even better. Thanks again Paul Hill, March 8th, 2011, Bayfield, Ontario

We had the opportunity to swim and snorkel with the dolphins and it was awesome. My entire family brought home memories we will never forget. The beauty of the resort along with the location of the key in relation the the reef makes this a preferred destination for a week long family vacation. We visited while on a cruise ship and we were glad it was our last stop because we would have been spoiled for the rest of the trip if it was our first stop. Your staff are very professional wether it was the gift staff, the boat drivers and the dolphin trainers. Thanks for an awesome experience and we will be back. Bruce Thurston, March 6th, 2011, Yorkton, Saskatchewa

We arrived by cruise ship for the Dolphin Encounter. It is the most beautiful place I think that I have ever seen. I could have stayed there for my entire vacation. Ann-Marie Perkins, February 14th, 2011, Guin, Alabama

Yep, I was 15 on a trip with a dive shop that I saved up to go on by cutting grass. That\’s how much I love to dive.I can tell you I\’ve fallen in love with this place ever since. no place better than here. Been back over the years but the cruse thing sucks. The best way to go is to stay in the little huts over the water and dive all week. If you\’re a serious diver this is a trip you will never forget. Andrew Lipps, February 9th, 2011

Wow! We just got back from AKR and I can not say enough about how wonderful the trip was. The resort is exactly like the brochure pictures and the staff is top notch. The food was delicious with the waiters being very attentive to your needs. From the time we step off the plane AKR staff was there waiting for us to give us a beautiful, worry-free trip of a life time. Our captain along with our dive-master was on top of their game. The attention one receives while on the island is 5 star. We are already planning our next trip to AKR and hopefully will be able to experience it this summer. We are looking forward to seeing Gregory \”the man\” along with front desk check-in Jackie, Capt. Kennley, Dive-master John and Sandi the boat taxi driver, along with all the other staff. Dianna & David Jones, January 26th, 2011, Lake Jackson, Texas

We had the absolute best time ever on our trip to AKR last fall!! We made friends that we continue to keep in touch with and have some amazing memories and photographs to keep the memory alive! The snorkeling was absolutely amazing and with Corvin and Ross \”the boss\” as our guides, we saw some amazing things as well as having a blast! Special thanks to them as well as the fabulous taxi boat guys – so friendly and welcoming! Can\’t wait to come back to AKR!!!! Shannon Ryerse, January 25th, 2011, Delhi, Ontario, Canada

We visited your resort on a Discover Scuba excursion while on a cruise.It was Great. Our instructor Neil was excellent. Our next trip will be without the cruise and just to your resort. Thanks for taking very good care of us while we were there. John & Sarah Nelson, January 24th, 2011, Bastrop, LA

So many people to thank!!! Thank you John and Rupert for a great diving experience!! You guys rock!! Thank you Bisch and Judith for taking the time to talk and enlighten us about the world below!! This is a \”must do again soon\” trip for us! You all made our stay there, the best and most informative vacation ever!! Holly Sherman, January 11th, 2011, Winfield Illinois

My first dive in Roatan. It was awesome. I will be back. Thank you for a wonderful time. My wife and I were cruising on NCL\’S \”Spirit\”. Again, Thank you for two great dives. George Peterson, December 27th, 2012, Austin, AR

A most wonderful experience. It was my first hurricane and first \”real\” dive. Kept a journal and titled it, \”Finding My Happy Place.\” Would like to bring my whole family here. We have been home over a month and still cannot stop smiling at the memories. The staff at AKR was helpful. The dive master, Vin, and captain, Jimmy, were so friendly and knowledgeable. They made sure that we had a fabulous time. Alice James, December 8th, 2012, Lake City, Utah

We went for Thanksgiving week with our college-aged son. My husband works for the airline so we are very lucky that we can go on a lot of vacations. I will say Anthony\’s Keys was one of our best vacations yet. The resort is beautiful, the food was good my husband would say great (I\’m a picky eater, but I was able to find things I liked – soup was very good). The dolphin swim was out of this world and a must for this place. We\’ve done encounters at other places and not even close to here. Well worth the little bit of money they charge for it!!! All the people working there were wonderful and very helpful. I would love to go back again. Vicki Judice, December 6th, 2010, Houston, TX

Just visited your website – can\’t believe all the changes at Anthony\’s! In 1994, no air con in the rooms; no swimming pool; you rang a bell at night for a boat to come and take you over to the island where your bungalow was; the water in the room was often not working so we learned to take showers using water bottles; we had dinner with Don Romeo of Romeo\’s resort one night, what a character; a young Peter Hughes (the liveaboard guy) was at the bar a couple of nights; dinners some nights were only potatoes and salad; but even back then, everyone was friendly and the diving was frequent, uncrowded, and awesome. Divemasters were competent, cool and understated. Our dive logs from that trip are filled with notations of sharks, rays, turtles, eels, and places like \”Gold Chain Reef.\” Anthony\’s was one of the greatest dive resorts in the world back then, if a bit of an adventure, and we can\’t wait to see what it is like now. Gotta find out if you can still get a \”Monkey Lala\” at the bar. We are coming back soon and bringing our 17 year old son who is getting certified this spring! Kim & Kathleen Normington, November 24th, 2012, Los Gatos, California

Took this as an excursion from our cruise and the minute we saw this resort we wanted to come back. This was before our dive. After our dive we knew we are coming back. Everyone was great and the resort is beautiful..Planning on seeing you all soon. Chris Perdoni, November 12th, 2010, Jamesburg, NJ

What a great time. Extremely well organized, well run dive operation. Kevin keeps all divers and boats moving in the right direction. Divemaster Marvin and Captain Leo on the \”Sabrina\” were excellent. Very Helpful to all divers both on the boat and in the water. Cabanas were clean and comfortable. We all had a fantastic trip. Plan to come back soon!! Barrett Kane, October 9th, 2010, Sussex, NJ

I gave my daughter this trip to AKR and I believe is the best present she has had so far. We both loved every minute of our stay. Everyone was very nice and polite, thanks to Jerry, Larry, and Perry at the restaurant you\’ll very nice, also much thanks to our water taxi driver Sandy, very patient and polite can\’t forget Ross from giving me tips on my first snorkel adventure. Thanks again everyone in AKR, hope to see you\’ll soon. Marina Miller, October 4th, 2010, Palestine, Texas

I eagerly await my return! Your wonderful establishment has become my badly needed \”fix\”. things were top notch from day one: every accommodation is thought of, from dive gear support and storage to safety, food, dive sites…it is a perfect balance! never rushed, and the best boat crews anywhere! Thank you for the trip of my dreams! Kelly Lavin, September 28th, 2010, Cloudcroft, New Mexico

We did the Dolphin dive as an excursion on our cruise and had an amazing time! We loved the profesional staff and the small group. we had plenty of interaction w/ the dolphins and it was an experiance we will never forget. Thanks again! Crystal Racicot, September 28th, 2010, Ft. Myers, FL

GREAT experience. Staff, food, accomodations, other guests were exemplary. No complaints at all from this habitual complainer! Blake Golden, September 18th, 2010, Birmingham, Alabama

Went for a dolphin encounter and Tabyana Beach Day on our sruise. The dolphin encounter and snorkling was awesome! And we fell in love with Roatan and Anthony Keys. We plan on coming for a week stay Feb 2011 our one year anniversary, cant wait! We tell everyone about Anthony Keys! Jennifer Barnard, August 17th, 2010, Elgin, Texas

This was our first diving destination and both myself and my wife can honestly say we had the best time. We liked the way the dive boats were set up. Never saw the same dive spot. The staff went above and beyond what we expected. If you book a trip and this is your first time. Ask the dive shop to put you with Frank the dive master and Kenly the Boat captain. Both of these great people will take care of you just like family… Ask frank to take you out on Friday evening, he knows a great place to eat on the Island. We WILL see you next year! Bryon Myers, August 16th, 2010, Iota, Louisiana

I\’m a dive instructor who has nothing but good things to say about my visit to AKR. Great, safe, and sound diving doesn\’t get any easier shy of a live-aboard. The grounds are groomed, secure and safe for families. My cabana with no A/C was absolutely fine for sleeping in. The staff are helpful, honest, and work as a team. I will be back. Brian P, August 14th, 2010, Okinawa, Japan

I just spent a week in a new and wonderful world!!!!! Greer Curry, August 8th, 2010, Lyle, WA

First time ever being at this resort and I loved every moment of it. The staff was more than just pleasant. Always smiling and going the extra mile when needed. The dolphins were just amazing to interact with. The RIMS staff where very well knowledgable and well in tuned with the dolphins. In all was an experience that I would love to live all over again! Trisha Parmanand, August 3rd, 2010, Toronto, Canada

Had a wonderful time!! LOVED my Dolphin encounter. I could have stayed there all day. It was the hi-light of my cruise vacation. Thank you !! Kimberly Caylor, July 28th, 2010, Hurlburt Field, FL

Stuck in roatan in a tropical storm and no better place to be than Anthony\’s! Mollie O\’Mara, June 30th, 2010, NYC

Just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful expierence you gave my family. We came in on a cruise and I took a dive while the rest of the family went to see the dolfins and play on the beach. I took the beginers course/dive and plan to get my certification soon due to the great experience. I have talked with several friends about your trips and we will return! All certified to dive… I cannot wait until my return trip now! I\’ll skip the cruise next time and spend all week at your resort. Thanks again. William Bourg, June 16th, 2010, New Orleans, LA

My husband, son and myself had our first \”ocean\” dive and it was beyond words. Staff was awesome, clean. Just a beautiful place. I will be planning a trip there soon and stay there (we were on a Cruise) Can\’t wait for that day to come. Thanks for making that part of our vacation something we will never forget. Rusty, Leigh & Grant Parker, June 15th, 2010, Nixa Mo

Had an AWESOME time, All the people at AKR were great, Food was fantastic, Drinks were stiff, Bungalow was clean and Nice. Had a problem with the shower but they fixed it in 20 mins, What service!! Kenley and Hector Were the best!! They let us dive at our skill levels without bothering us, what a great experience. I will definately be back to see them again!! Steven Furletti, June 12, 2010, Phoenix, AZ

My brother, Bob and sister-in-law Marilyn(Sumner), along with my hubby Dwight, and I stayed at AKR Feb – March 2006. It was such a wonderful and fun time for the 4 of us. All the diving, all the people, all the fun! Keith and Dion, Beth and Ron it was so fun to meet all of you. It\’s so nice to meet such nice people and to feel that you\’ve known each other so long, and it was only a week. The diving is phenomenal at AKR, and we have been to some nice places. The water is so great! The reefs are beautiful. The boats are fantastic! What more can you say? We will be back, just not soon enough. Maybe for our 28th Anniversary this year???? Hope to see ya all soon! Lisa Kniceley, June 10th, 2010, Highland, Michigan

I came through Anthony\’s Key twice. Once when I was 9 and again at age 11. 30 years ago. I am blown away by the pictures. It looks so different but in many ways it hasn\’t changed a bit. I have fond memories of passing out bubble gum to the kids that lived there so that I could make friends for my short stay there. Wonderful place. Jennifer Nicholls, May 27th, 2010, Dallas, TX

Thanks for the great treat-Lloyd and Michele guided us thru our whole stay. Swimming with the dolfins was certainly a high point for all of us. Sincere thanks to all there. We\’re still dreaming of Honduras. Anne Sorrells, April 1st, 2010, Hot Springs, AR

We spent the Christmas week of 2009 at AKR. The weather the first 3 days did not cooperate but despite the rain, we still got in several great dives. The picnic at Maya Key was postponed but we still had it later in the week. This trip had several first\’s for my wife…First shark dive, First dolphin dive and first night dive in the ocean. I can not imagine a better place to have a land based diving vacation. Bill Draver, March 9th, 2010, Chicago, Illinois

There is no place on earth like AKR! We can\’t stay away and plan to make this an annual trip. This year we are bringing along our two adult daughters, our son-in-law and several friends. We hope to fill an entire dive boat with Marvin as our dive master – the best dive master in the world. Thank you AKR for bringing our idea of a tropical paradise vacation to life!! Janet Crance, February 1st, 2010, Phoenix, Arizona

Good hill rooms, even better key rooms, excellent food! Very well mounted diving operation, excelent reef. Hope to visit again. Miguel Helfrich, January 11th, 2010, Lisbon, Portugal

I did a day dive trip in february of 2008 and enjoyed it. I have dove all over the world, and thought diving the trench and in the beatiful waters of Honduras was by far the most amazing! Great staff, great dive, great fun! Jody Weightman, December 18th, 2009, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

This was our second stay in one year! Yes, we are thrilled with AKR!! I really don\’t think it is possible to have a better vacation. We would love to thank Yolanda for her wonderful hospitality, Richard for being the best small boat handler ever, and Marcos and Celasi for making dining a pleasure!!! By the way, the Soup Lady is fabulous!! We will see all of our wonderful friends at AKR again next fall! Have a great new year! Serena Wise, December 8th, 2009, Kansas City, MO

We usually dive alone but Junior was the best underwater ambassador one could ask for! The Dolphins were a kick and the staff all quite nice. The night dives were other worldly and we recommend buying the DVD to share with family…it has enchanted 4 year olds to 80 year old family. We will tour some more on our own and come back to be spoiled with the outstanding hospitality and expertise of the staff…esp Junior .. thank you for a perfect vacation. Deborah Kastor, December 7th, 2009, Santa Cruz, CA

We were stranded at the airport after a wonderful week there,when Sherry came to the rescue of 26 divers,returned us to the resort,and fed us a complimentary dinner,untilour disabled plane could take off.Your staff and facility are amazing.Thank you so much. A 5 star review was sent to Trip Advisor!!! Nancy Nielson, November 15th, 2009, Salem, Oregon

Hi I was hoping Tom and Kathy from Long Island is on this..We dove together from 9-21- 9-26, Gregg and I (Laura) tried looking for you before you left to give you our information, but we missed you. We were on Ven\’s boat. Had a great time diving with you. Laura Silva, October 9th, 2009, Pearblossom, CA

I dived AKR a while ago! the staff were amazing! i stayed on the boat called trevor with Mark lambert as my quide! he was amazing, he taught me so much! i would like to return next year maybe for some work if theyll take me but i would like to get in contact with mark im sure he remembers me! Mark James, October 8th, 2009, Bath, UK

Aloha, Just returned from a wonderful dive vacation with my 5 BFF\’s! We were treated like Dive Diva\’s and can\’t thank the staff enough for their impeccable service and infectious smiles! We felt like we were at \”Adult Summer Camp\” and enjoyed our sunrise kayak to say good morning to the dolphins, fabulous meals, dive master & capt. who were gracious to roll with our jokes & laughter on the \”all chick\” dive boat for one week, night critter search with flashlights in hand, horseback riding on the beach with no restrictions and our daily cocktails of \”monkey lala\’s\” at the pool bar! As a traveler, I don\’t normally go back to same place twice, but AKR is different and will return again! You all rock! Beth Malvestiti, October 6th, 2009, Honolulu Hawaii

It was the most fabulous dive trip I have had yet- water clarity was fabulous, food outstanding weather and accomodations remarkable. I will be there again this weekend 09/12/09 for the week. I loved my dive trip!! Renee McCoy, September 9th, 2009, Boulder, CO

I had the opportunity to experience my first dive at the AKR. The staff made me feel comfortable from the very beginning and provided me with a dive opportunity I will never forget. I have signed up with PADI and once I gain my certification will be heading back down to Roatan to thank them for opening my eyes to a whole new world! Zach Johnson, August 4th, 2009, Tampa FL

This was our first visit to AKR, with plans to come back. I give 5 stars all the way around for the food, rooms, diving, complete resort, and the staff. The food was amazing at every meal, with a varity of choice for all three meals daily and the staff willing to make any adjustments to individual needs. The resort itself has a lot to offer with a varity of room styles to pick from. Majority of the rooms sit on AKR private island that really provide an island stay feel with the palm trees spread out perfectly and the whole island seemed to be made of sand. During my stay at AKR I think I only had my sandles on twice, making it a barefoot vacation. The dive operation is one I have never experienced. Even if the diving was just ok I would still come back from just how well AKR operates. As a diver I almost never touched my gear and was advised by the AKR dive staff to focus all my energy on just diving. Everything for a diver was in arms reach, and if not the staff was right there to provide a hand. Our boat captin Kendley & divemaster Frankie were always on top of everything. Kendley took care of everything at 10ft & above, and Frankie took care of everything 10ft & below. As an underwater photographer they did a great job of finding all the marine life to help me get some great underwater images of our trip. Lastly, AKR has the best staff. Everyone from the bar staff to housekeeping were very kind, very inviting, and always held a smile. I look forward to visiting again. Shawn Mrzena, July 20th, 2009, Snoqualmie, WA

This was our first time at AKR but we hope to come back in the future. We are not divers, but the various activities at the resort kept us more than entertained. The food was excellent and the service amazing! We highly recommend the resort to both divers and non-divers alike. This is truly an island paradise! Wayne and Monica Shorter, July 17th, 2009, Jackson, TN

In Nov 2008 we traveled to AKR for my 5th trip and my wifes 6th trip. Each time we go we invite friends and family to share in this unique place. Our group had 13 divers or snorkelrs. Everybody had a nice time. The snorkelers were blown away that they had their own boat and crew catering to them. The dives were great as always. Hoping to go again in 2010. We would go again this fall if we could get it scheduled. Chuck Nelson, July 16th, 2009, Nampa, Idaho

This was our first visit to AKR and it definitely won\’t be our last. We had a GREAT time!! Everyone there was very friendly and we got excellent service. The dive shop is so organized (Mark & Rupert were great) and there were so many other activities for our kids & in laws that don\’t dive. We didn\’t even need to leave the resort. Thanks to everyone at AKR!! Heather & Bill Crosby, July 6th, 2009, Oxford, MS

Great resort, best dive operation i have ever encounter. Food was great, different activites for non-divers is outstanding, no comparison to any other caribbean resort. Make sure you ask for DM: Ven and boat captain: Joel, simply the best dive crew i have ever met.Fernando Pineda, June 23rd, 2009, Fullerton, CA

This was our 4th trip to AKR. It\’s a great place!. The food is great, the people are great, and the diving is wonderful. We can\’t wait to go back. Everyone takes care of you. Thanks to Dive Master Alson and Captain Noel. Kay Hicks, May 30th, 2009, Farmerville, LA

My first dive destination. I am dumbstruck! Our dive master Francisco Acevedo is wise beyond his years and a true professional. I will request him, no… I will demand him on my next trip there. You\’re in good hands with him leading the dive. Accomodations are clean, well taken care and all of the staff is first rate. Food is good. If you like hot sauce you have to ask for Selasse\’s Hot Sauce. It\’s the real deal, made by (I kid you not)Selasse who pampers the guests in the restaurant. The \”noseeums\” are alive and well and will eat you up if you don\’t take precautions. I started using \”Cactus Juice\” with sunscreen religiously on the second day and never got another bite. Diving is spectacular. It made my pictures the talk of the office when I got back to the states. If you have not been here you need to go. If have already been you need to go back. I know I will! Ray Miller, May 29th, 2009, Gresham, Oregon

Our week in AKR was amazing. Marvin our Dive master, and Rupert the boat captain knew exactly where to take us to let us experience the best of Roatan. I cant wait until next year. Thank you AKR for a great vacation. Loni Vroom, May 26th, 2009, Tampa, Florida

I recently returned from my second stay at AKR, it was even better than my first. Alson (dive master) and Jimmy (boat captain) were great!! I am already planning a return trip for November. Stacey Harris, May 25th, 2009, Austin, TX 

This was our frist trip to AKR. It was amazing. This was Lisa and my first diving trip. We were somewhat apprehensive about diving off of a boat! Luckily we had Frank as our divemaster and Rupert as our Captain. What a team! They were both so patient and helpful. Frank was a great buddy and teacher.The accomadations were rustic and wonderful. The food was excellent. Our waiters, Saul and Marcos could not have been more courteous and friendly. Can\’t forget Cesar, the groundskeeper who was quick to spot and point out the iguanas and other wildlife to us. This trip was amazing and we are already planning a return trip in March. Suzanne, Lisa & Tony Graves, May 14th, 2009, Cleburne, TX

Our stay at AKR was great! The diving was some of the best we\’ve done yet. The Shark Dive is an absolute must!! Hands down the best dive we\’ve done yet. The reefs were very healthy and beautiful, and we saw new things with every dive — lots of sea horses, rays, groupers, turtles, toad fish, etc. The list is endless. Great diving for sure! And if you\’re lucky enough to get Ven as your divemaster, then you\’ve really hit the jackpot. He was wonderful.

Also, I would recommend the \”diving w/the dolphins\” over the \”dolphin encounter\”. The accomodations were fine — pretty basic, nothing fancy, but that\’s okay because we weren\’t in our cabin that often anyway. The daily housekeeping was nice. The decks are great. I would highly recommend upgrading to a unit w/A/C. It was pretty humid and warm. The food and dining area was good. Wait staff was great! But be prepared to tip everyone at the resort. Not a big deal though because they all deserved to be tipped. Everyone for the most part was pretty friendly, although a few of the staff seemed annoyed to help you. Bugs are pretty bad. Definitely bring your bug spray! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the resort. We will definitely return some day. A Wilson, May 13th, 2009, Lawrence, KS

We stayed at AKR from 4/12-4/16 and it was absolutely wonderful! Although we are not divers, we really enjoyed having the resort to ourselves while the rest of the guests were out diving. The weather, water and temperature were all perfect for the 5 days we were there. Friendly staff, great food, comfortable hut and great access to many animal experiences. We will probably be back. Heather Muchmore, April 19th, 2009, Schenectady, NY

Hello!! I came on the 11/04 in the afternoon with TGI and I just want to let you know that swimming with dolphines was one of the best experiences in my whole life! Special thanks to your lovely staff and if I will come back to Roatan I\’ll book at your resort for sure! Federica Gabrielli, April 17th, 2009, Treviso, Italy

Our group of nine (6 divers and 3 \”vacationers\”) spent the week of March 14th at AKR. The week was wonderful, fabulous, perfect! The divers enjoyed the three boat dives daily, the proximity of all dive sites to the resort, and the clear waters, beautiful fish and coral. The vacationers enjoyed the massage, the gift shop, kayaks, dolphin encounter and snorkeling. Everyone enjoyed the food! It was great to be able to choose from the daily menu options. Everything was delicous; especially the desserts!! AKR has other activites (fish identification presentation, fire show, native dancers and a trip to Fins N Flippers) so that there is always something to do — including relaxing in the hammocks! AKR was well run, efficient and very customer service orientated. We will definitely be back! Roberta, Cragun, March 27th, 2009, LaCrosse, WI

We had a wonderful time at AKR, despite all the rain. A big \\\’thank-you\\\’ to Hector, Richard & Michelle in the dive shop — and all the AKR staff that made our vacation an unforgetable one! Rob & Dannie

What an amazing place! We spent Christmas there and it far exceeded our expectations! The diving was great, but there is so much to this place other than the diving. Several non-divers were really enjoying it, too. The food is phenominal, the people are so nice, the bungalos are picturesque, the place is better than can be imagined. Would love to go back! Juanita Chang, January 4th, 2009, Dupont, WA\\

We just returned from a week at the Resort. What an absolutely unforgetable experience. There is not one thing about the resort that did not exceed our expectation and from what we seen is unmatched on Roatan. We are already planning our return. Shawn Buhr, November 21st, 2008, Lucky Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada

All I can say is WOW! This was my first diving trip and I can\’t describe how thrilling it was to see the reef up close. The dolphins are amazing!! A big thanks to Marcos, it was nice to get off of the resort for a little while. We will be back and are trying to recruit friends!! Keep up the great work. Thanks a million!! Serena Wise, November 10th, 2008, Kansas City, Missouri

Wow!! What an amazing time! Everything was perfect! Hector (Divemaster) and Celasi (Waiter/Inventor) you both are the bomb! We still talk of both of you. We loved every minute except for when we had to depart. The diving experience was so much more than we expected. By the way, after two weeks, I still have on my AKR bracelet. It\’s just too hard to let go. We\’ll be back. Celasi…..everyone loves the sauce! Natalie Rymer, October 13th, 2008, Cocoa, FL

The major reason I went was to learn to S.C.U.B.A. dive. It was the most amazing experience of my life. I\’d do it again in a heartbeat.Amanda S, September 25th, 2008, Zionsville, PA

We will be traveling again to AKR n November. It will be my 5th trip, my wifes 6th. The place is great! Yolanda the Mgr and all the folks that work there are friendly, and do a nice job. It is my favorite as it is not a lot of cement as at other resorts. Very laid back and relaxing. Before I learned to dive at AKR, I snorkeled and they were the only resort we traveled to that also treated snorkelers with respect. NICE JOB ! We have brought probably 10 + other families with us on our trips and it is fun taking new customers to AKR. Chuck, September 17th, 2008, Nampa, ID

I went on a cruise during spring break & one of our stops was roatan, as our excursion we chose to go to Anthony\’s to swim w/ the doplhins. I\’m so glad we chose to do so because it was one of the most wonderful experiences I have ever had!! I still have pics all over the house of me w/ the dolphins & everyone always asks where was that @? I love to tell everyone about our trip to your resort. We didn\’t get to actually stay there but I took pics of the cabins & remember telling myself I was coming back someday & wanted more than anything to stay there. I was also very interested in the fact that they have camps for kids, my daughter is now 15, but has always loved marine life & has a love for the ocean as I do. I want her to be able to experience what I did there as well as being a learning experience. I want to be able to take her someday, may do something like that for her graduation!! This resort is so refreshing to the soul & in our stressful lives now, especially as a single parent, it\’s a breath of fresh air. I would recommend anyone of any age to go!! Melanie Ramos, September 10th, 2008, Corpus Christi, TX

Awesomely mind blowing experience! They were so gracefull and playfull. I hope I am blessed enough to be a dolphin in another lifetime. Mika and I formed a bond. Andrew Wolf, August 15th, 2008, San Antonio, Texas

We came to Anthonys Key to check things out on a mini vacation, 5 days. What a great time and great resort. The facilities were top notch, the dive shop and boats were by far some of the best I have been on. This is SCUBA Camp for adults and or families. Incredible, we will be back, soon! A shout out to Joel! John Shanks, July 24th, 2008, Alexandria, VA

I had a fabulous stay here. The staff was very efficient and the dive masters and boat captains were wonderful and very knowledgable(shout-out to Mark!!) Everyone was very friendly and fun to talk to. I absolutely loved it, and have every intention of coming back next year. PS, Much love to Danny, Ernie, Ty and Ross. Look forward to seeing you next year! Aurore H., July 13th, 2008, Louisiana

Wow, I love this place! The water is beautiful, the people are so kind and accommodating and some of the best snorkelling and diving in the world is right here. And there is no better place in the world to relax than in a tech-free cabin, waking up to the sounds of nature instead of traffic reports on your clock radio. Donna Paris, July 9th, 2008, Toronto, Ontario

Your resort is BEAUTIFUL. Last week we were on a cruise and came to your resort for a Dolphin Encounter. We loved it. Hello French!!! While there I already knew I wanted to come back. Next time it will be a week at the resort! Everyone was so friendly and the Island is so beautiful. Thank-you for the wonderful experience, we will be back soon! Lisa Burr, July 3rd, 2008, Monroe, Connecticut

Took a cruise to Roatan, Bay Islands and was lucky enough to book my excursion to go diving at Anthony\’s Key. Greatest experience ever, beautiful reef, great staff and memories that will last forever. Looking forward to making plans to come for a real visit and stay for days. Beth, June 16th, 2008, New York

We have only been back home for two days and I am already planning my next trip to AKR. The beauty of the resort is in the people just as much as the setting. The meals were excellent and the diving spectacular (Thanks Greg). See you soon!! Danton Hebert, June 16th, 2008, Abbeville, Lousiana

I loved your facility andyour hospitality I felt very safe diving with your staff I have been a lot of places and I must tell you my whole experiance there was the best to date for me and I have been diving for 16 years and have logged about 300 dives I will be back and next time I will bring my adult children and stay for a week or two my first time there was a one day cruise ship visit not nearly enough time to enjoy your beautiful island Thank you very much. Tom Hendrick, June 14th, 2008, Fayetteville, WV

Loved Anthony\’s Key so much that I took my kids there last summer for the dolphin camp. My son wrote several school assignments about the trip during this past school year! We are eager to return soon so we can dive as a family again! You simply cannot beat the service, the facilities, the dive staff and the price anywhere. The dive sites are memorable, the resort has a peaceful, welcoming feel.Cynthia Graves, June 14th, 2008, Pflugerville, Texas

The most Amazing place we have been, most of all the staff there are awsome and we cant wait to return. Will be back Jan 09. We miss PACO!!! Greg/Robin Wagner, June 13th, 2008, Killeen, TX

My week at AKR was amazing!I certified as a diver! 🙂 We had lovely weather, for the exception of two.. I am for sure( and i promised some of the staff guys) to come back, with my friends from Norway next fall! And we for sure will!! I used to never believe there was a place called paradise, until I discovered Anothonys Key Resort… Andrea, June 10th, 2008

Our 13 yr old son, Cody was diver certified this winter, and we found AKR through the PADI advertisments. We couldn\’t attend during the kids summer camps times, and our son was basically the only child there during our week…he told us that this vacation was the greatest time ever and can\’t wait to go back. We truly had the best time. Thank you AKR staff. Greg & Linda Day, June 9th, 2008, Grants Pass, OR

I only stayed a week, but it was a memorable one. I went on the snorkelling boat, had a great time, and did some freediving on some terrific reefs (thanks, Mike). There\’s a huge amount to see in the shallows — just as good as the Red Sea. I was travelling on my own, and everyone made me welcome, staff and guests alike. I shall be coming back! Paul, June 8th, 2008, Orpington Kent, UK

Visited last year for a week of diving and work with RIMS – One of the most memorable weeks of my life and I can\’t wait to convince my finace\’ to honeymoon there!!! Jen, June 2nd, 2008, Williamsport, PA

Diving with AKR was great. Arrived via the Carnival Glory but one day simply was not enough. We plan to return and stay with AKR in the Fall. Great group of people, very professional, and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommend! Julie Snyder, May 28th, 2008, Rineyville, KY
