Swim in the warm, calm ocean or freshwater infinity pool with swim up bar; snorkel on the vibrant coral reef just a short swim from shore, dive with the newly opened onsite Dive Shop. Take a water taxi (available right at our pier) or regular taxi, at very reasonable rates, to West End for additional night life, restaurants, shopping and dive shops. Fresh fruit, vegetables and fish are sold out of trucks, daily in West End, or on specific days outside the local West Bay Mall. Canopy Zipline, Dolphin Swim at Anthony's Key, Gumbalinda Park, botanical gardens, Black Pearl Golf Course and many other attractions are close by and activities can be arranged onsite. For longer stays requiring additional groceries, there are four large supermarkets on the island; Plaza Mar and Eldon's near the airport in Coxen Hole, Sun Supermarkets on the main street in Coxen Hole and Eldon's Supermarket in French Harbour. All have a large selection of groceries (many familiar US brands), spirits and household items. West End town has two or three smaller grocery stores and a duty free store for wine and other spirits.

A checkout cleaning fee of $46.21 US is payable directly to the resort upon check out. Honduras Airport departure tax of approx. $39 US pp is payable at the airport.
Currently, housekeeping (change of towels, linens, cleaning of the unit, garbage removal) is included once every third day and return airport shuttle is complimentary (there is a possibility that charges may be implemented in future by the resort for these services). We recommend a taxi ($30) rather than the shuttle if you wish to stop at the grocery store on the way and save yourself a trip back.
