Laid-back, friendly and welcoming little resort on its own private caye. A scuba diver's dream, but equally suited to relaxation.
As its name suggests, Barefoot Cay is a laid-back, informal, very friendly and welcoming little resort. It sits on a private cay fringed with powder-white sand, just off Roatán island. It holds special appeal for scuba divers for whom there is an on-site PADI dive centre, but guests who only want to relax will also feel at home here.
There are just twelve guestrooms, from loft studios to villas and cottages, catering for individuals, couples, families and groups of friends. Barefoot Cay's bungalows, villa, and cottage are all right on the beach, and the loft studios and suites are oceanviews. They are more like little luxury flats than hotel rooms: all have kitchenettes and the cottages and villas have living rooms.
Modern facilities such as TV, Apple TV with Netflix, air-con, Wifi and in-room safe are standard. There's a decent-sized pool, spa, marina, good restaurant and private beach.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Comfortable room with stunning view of the mountain. Very clean. At breakfast a big choice with lots of fruit and nuts. the food in both restaurants was very good. A good range of excursions of different levels of difficulty with very knowledgeable guides. I liked the educational programme and the evening talks and the organic garden. There is a lovely spa which I could have made use of had the weather been worse.AD, Cambridge
