Main Road

This is the good stuff. Wines, fine spirits, good frozen beef, thick-cut bacon, gluten-free foods, mixers, chocolates, cheeses, Marble Hill jams, a tiny fresh produce bin with OK stuff to keep you going until you can get to Eldon's, and a nice deli-lunch-counter to eat-in or take-out. And they deliver to your boat. They'll order in anything you want (but it will take a while to get here from .. Miami). It is, of course, maybe the most expensive provisioning possible. But they have the small luxuries you just can't find otherwise in the NW Caribbean.

Reviews for Barefoot Cay Marina
Resort with docks - not a marina, 2016-04-26
Captain: , Newport, RI (10275)

First off, this is a resort with docks and not a marina. The staff, who is incredibly friendly, knows next to nothing about boats. Someone may or may not be available to help you tie up. A 105' megayacht came in while we were there and we had to grab their lines and tie them up. No one from the resort showed up until well after the yacht was docking was complete.

This is a beautiful facility with a good restaurant. Breakfast and dinner are the best deals.

If you walk out to the main road and walk west for about 5 minutes (no sidewalks & busy road) you'll come to Bulk Gourmet, who serves wonderful sandwiches and stocks a large quantity of US beef and gourmet products.

We took our dinghy to the E end of the bay and talked to a guard at a facility who allowed us to tie up to their docks and walk to Eldens, who also stocks a large amount of US type products.

I came in here today looking for diesel. I called in on the VHF, asking about the difficulty of navigating into the Marina. They came out and guided me in. There are no channel markers! Everyone here was very friendly and helpful. The facilities are beautiful. The views are too. Customs and immigration came out to help us. Minutes by taxi to a large grocery store that equals almost any in the states.
The Marina called customs for us. They came to the boat several times....super helpful and made it very easy

The only up-scale destination marina in Roatan, 2016-01-01
Captain: , Fort Myers, FL (1059)

Really nice place to treat yourself to some luxury. If you have guests coming or are tired of life on the hook, Barefoot's for you. Yes, it's not cheap but Barefoot Cay delivers a lot for the money in context with the rest of Central America. We paid nearly twice as much in Isla Mujeres for nowhere near as nice a stay.

The approach is "interesting", they will lead you in with a launch if you ask. Since reservations are required, they will know you are coming but call in on VHF as you get close to the Pavlidas Guide's entry waypoint. Barefoot monitors 18A on the US channel set. Lots of water depth, the cut was 40 ft deep and about 200 ft wide, but not one to do in the dark or with a heavy SE sea running.

The slips are parcelled out of a large basin on the west side of the cay. It was built to accomodate two megayachts (could easily get four cruising cats in it), and they have various other side-tie wooden dockage too. The basin runs right up to the pool deck. Go in bows-first to get easterly breeze and to keep your cockpit a little more private.

The marina is a full service resort. Restaurant (reservations needed for dinner since they have to bring in supplies), bar, pool, dive center, etc. The palapa out on a long pier is a really nice retreat and provides easy access to their house reef Easily seen on the satelite image). There is some beach but it is on their house reef so it's not a swimming beach. Security is 24-7 and the marina is across a canal from the shore. The staff have been very professional and friendly. Not a single sour cherry in the lot. The marina showers are the nicest we have experienced, roomy, clean, freshly decorated, fresh flowers. Awesome WiFi, but they do ask that you not bog it down with large file downloads. There is a BIP fuel dock just up the canal from the resort with enough depth in the canal to pass the occasional inter-island freighter, so there's no difficulty for typical cruising boats to get to the fuel dock. Groceries are a 35Lp ride on the colectivo up to Eldon's. Fancy provisions are a 5-minute walk west to Bulk Gourmet. The cruisers net runs M-S on VHF74 at 07:30.

Note to cruisers - when they say they have 'laundry;, they mean hotel-style per-piece laundry service, really expensive!, so we used the local lavanderia up near French Town.

The on-site dive center, Barefoot Divers, is superb, with a fleet of walk-on-walk-off boats right at the resort. The staff dedicate your gear to you for your whole stay, lockers allow you to leave your personal gear at the shop. The staff load it all on the boats, dive-master the dives, provide any level of instruction you may want, unload it all when you're back, and have huge rinse tanks for all the clean up. The end result is that you show up to your locker, put on your wetsuit, grab your mask and fins, and board the boat. With a boat at 8:30, 10:30 and 14:00, night dives or trips to West End on request, it couldn't be easier or better. And diving is much of the reason to come to Roatan.

Only down-side are the sand fleas. The resort manages them with daily raking and an organic agent extracted from chyrsanthemums, and will concentrate their efforts around your boat on request, but the no-see-um's can be a real misery. But that is the case on the whole island. This is not a unique issue to Barefoot. In fact, the bugs are severely worse on the untended beaches.
