Laid-back, friendly and welcoming boutique 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 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 14 guest rooms no matter your preferences and style, from loft studios to oceanfront villas, catering for individuals, couples, families and groups of friends. Barefoot Cay's villas are right on the beach, and the loft studios and suites have views overlooking Barefoot Cay and the Caribbean. Rooms include thoughtfully appointed amenities including Heavenly beds with high quality linens, luxury bath products, A/C, Wi-Fi, and in-room phones.
The step-on pontoon passenger ferry is available to take guests across the 85’ channel between Roatán and the Cay at any hour of the day or night, and the resort is situated in a central location on Roatán’s south shore, offering a perfect jumping off point for exploring and experiencing the island. There is a swimming pool and the Silversides Restaurant & Bar offers guests globally inspired dishes prepared from fresh, local ingredients.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Roatan Island and Turpoise Bay were lovely, possibly because it wasn't the height of the season so it was lovely and peaceful and the service was very good. However, Pico Bonito was something very special and we would love to return there and do some of the special trails into the National Park in the future. The whole place was just a beautiful paradise.AC, Tauton
The Mayan Ruins at Copan, the Macaw Park, spider monkeys in the forest at Pico Bonito, the visit to the Garifuna community on Cayas Cochinos and sailing off Roatan all stand out as great experiences.DT, Liverpool
The combo of Highlands and Honduras/Livingston offered the experience of a variety of settings and cultures. I must say that Antigua and Atitlan were stunning!CV, NYC
