"Secluded Piece of Paradise"
We had no idea going in that this was a private secluded beach and were totally surprised when we got out of the van and saw only a few people on the beach and several people riding horses on the beach. We felt like celebrities and were treated as such as well. I dream of going back here again. Jack the owner was very gracious and his staff helped us with every need. I can't say enough. The Treasure Chest lunch of shrimp, fish and lobster was a great deal and fed 3 of us. After we rode the horses and had lunch we were offered the jet skis to use. Even though we hadn't planned on jet skiing, Jack's staff gave us a private tour (for a very reasonable fee) on the jet skis around part of the island. They even had a rider sit behind my 13 year old so she would be safe while she drove. The beach is so beautiful we didn't want to leave. This is a great time and a really good deal. We purchased the photo package of us riding the horses which also included aerial and landscape photos of the property and beach so we would have our great memories forever. My picture that I took of his beach is now my screen saver on my phone.
"Highlight of Our Trip"
Hubby booked this with our Princess Cruise... and he's not a horse fan!! But the Assistant Manager excursion Rep with Princess - Maria recommended and showed us her photos first hand while we were on the ship. So we took a chance and so glad we did.... Always talked about riding horses in the ocean - now we have!! It was pricy with the cruise excursion, but would not have known about it otherwise - but then again try and do trail riding in Canada and it is easily $60 for an hour following tail to tail at most stables. The horse back portion was basic for any level of rider and they had guides to follow the entire time, assist or lead your horse if needed. Lenny was great!! Unfortunately the staff told us not to carry our phone/cameras due to the ocean ride time etc... but it would have been fine. We did pay the $35 US for our groups photos CD and they were great! Wish they had a few of just the area included, as a suggestion. However we were able to take our own after the tour. It is breathtakingly beautiful and clean, not busy and very laid back with Americans managing it. Food and drinks appropriately priced, and had the lionfish for lunch, hubby had a beer and I had a tequila punch. Our daughter loved the fresh coconut water drink $5. Picture with a monkey $5...so bring your cash. Wish we had more time at the beach as we could have easily skipped the allotted time to shop back near the ship area. Would definitely recommend this excursion if on a cruise ship. We understand you can save some money if you book it online or through a local tourist company but take your chances if trying to make it back to your cruise ship.
"We kept going back"
Our Hotel was near by and as a change of pace, we would stop into Havana beach / Lionfish Louie's for drinks, swimming, snorkling and food. Each of the above was above average and the hospitality was over the top. It does cost $5 / person to get in but the accommodations are spotless. During our week on Roatan, we were there 3 times and topped the trip out with Snorkling and Jet skis. What a great time!
I booked a trip here through Carnival Cruise Line for our stop in Roatan, Honduras. The intent was to complete a bucket list item (horseback riding on the beach). A group of about 25 of us arrived from the ship. The staff (many of whom were transplants from the USA) were very pleasant and helpful. The grounds were immaculate and groomed/raked beaches. The restaurant service, price and quality of food was very good. It was awesome to be able to shop for local items on the grounds without being harassed by local craftsmen for my business. The horseback ride was great, the guides were helpful in taking pictures once we got into the ocean and around the island. The location is on one of the most pristine stretches of beach on the Island. It was so serene! I would come back here again in a heartbeat and hope to! Thanks for showing me literally heaven on earth...or as close as I have ever come to seeing it. Make it a point to go there, and spend a day getting some well deserved R & R!
"THE BEST AND MOST RELAXING DAY EVER"
We met an awesome tour guide named Jay (find him on FB roantantoursbyj) we asked him to bring us horseback riding and to the beach and we had no car. The Bartender from The Lionfish and Jay picked us up at our hotel in his Pick up. My kids piled in the back and we set off to have the best day ever. We did horseback riding, snorkling, swimming and relaxing at the bar. it is a hidden Gem, if you want quiet and serene with great service and super nice folks! GO!!! We went again another day and the owner picked us up and drove us home. I want to live there. :)Visited March 2015
"A little Piece of Paradise"
We booked this excursion on our recent Carnival Cruise, and could not have been more pleased. From the time we were met at the Pier, to being dropped back off; everything was managed perfectly. The attention by the staff was great, facilities were wonderful and our lead Horseman Cory made our ride most enjoyable. We enjoyed a beverage on the beach after the ride and relaxed in the warm waters.Visited August 2015
"Horseback Riding & A Day On the Beach"
Oh what a great experience! I've been coming to Roatan since 2003 and this was my first time to get a ride here. Been "threatening" to do it for a long time & finally got my chance. Jose and Hiram, our guides, were wonderful even though Jose spoke only a couple words of English and I only speak a few of Spanish. He and I were still able to communicate.The horses, I was on Cocoa and Kim had Fimosa (sp?), were so gentle, just what we needed since it had been years since either of us had been riding. I'm sure there are horses there also that experienced riders would enjoy. (Oh, and they have a 4 day old foal! So precious!)We went at a slow pace, up the hillside just a touch, just enough to get a gorgeous view of Turquoise Bay. And it truly is turquoise, incredibly clear water, many shades of blue, with the late morning sun glittering off the surface. Jose & Hiram dismounted for a moment to take pictures of us on the ponies, with that background, and they picked some guavas to feed the horses. One now, and one for us to feed them when we finished the ride.Back down the slope to the beach, into the water we go. There is a small island about 100 yards off the beach, picture-postcard beauty. The horses took us around the island, they were chest deep, then up on the land to see the sea from maybe 20 feet elevation and look back at the beach. The island itself is perhaps 150 feet by 60, lots of palm trees, and a nice firm sandy ground.Down into the water again, where we saw a baby eagle ray, tiniest I've ever seen, a small puffer fish, and many others that I can't identify. Mainly silver sides. A slow meander to the beach where my husband was videoing the portions of our ride that he could see (since he didn't go).Dismounted, fed Cocoa and Fimosa their second guava, heartily thanked Jose and Hiram for their guiding services, and off to the bar/restaurant we went to rejoin the guys. Lunch was delicious. Sweet Habanero Shrimp for appetizer and Fish & Chips (lionfish, fries, cole slaw) for entrée. All was very good but I have to rave about the shrimp. Lightly breaded, perfectly cooked (not overdone), with a sweet habanero dipping sauce. Delectable! Drink of the day was rum, of course, what else in the Caribbean? LOL. A healthy drink of Plata, the local rum, and Coca Light is only $3.00 USD at this place. Cheers!We had a wonderful day at this gem of a beach. Not being a "cruise ship day" it was not crowded at all which is what we prefer. Staff and management are very friendly and helpful. We will DEFINTELY be back.Visited September 2015
"Gentle horses and great tour guides"
On August 12, 2015 my wife and I visited Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan, Honduras. This was a great Carnival Cruise Line excursion. It was called the “Beach Horseback Ride and Swim”. We were able to ride the horse with my swim suit (no long pants required). There are 10 restrooms to change clothes. Our guide was Allen. He was extremely knowledgeable and was very friendly. All of the staff treated us with kindness and were very helpful. The horseback riding experience was a lot of fun as well. We rode about 5 minutes on the sidewalk. Then, we rode the horses up the hill then back to the beach and went around a small island twice. All of the guides have camera experience and offered many opportunities to take photos. There is a souvenir shop next door but they do not pester you to buy. Afterwards we had lunch at Lionfish Louie. I had the Fish and Chips made with lionfish that was very good. I highly recommend this excursion and would go back.Visited August 2015
