Note: Trip must be paid in full 60 days days prior to departure. Missing payments can forfeit your spot to the next person on the waiting list.
DIVE Insurance is MANDATORY! DIVE insurance is VERY inexpensive. Even if you have insurance that you think covers DIVING ACCIDENTS and air lifts…it is CHEAP (less than $100) to get a supplemental policy to ensure you are covered for an entire year of diving.
Dive Assure please reference SingleDivers.com via the drop down menu under GLOBAL PARTNERS. Click here for Dive Assure for either a 'one time' policy OR an annual policy that is BOTH Dive & Trip Insurance providing PRIMARY COVERAGE with excellent rates and coverage!
Diver's Alert Network please use reference #1603080 Click here for Diver's Alert Network and use our reference ID1603080.
TRIP INSURANCE IS OPTIONAL BUT STRONGLY SUGGESTED. If you miss any Flights to (RTB) Roatan you MAY be able to catch a flight the next day but MANY run full and ONLY ONCE A WEEK so you may have to wait several days if not a week to get to the island! If you choose to self-insure that is fine but you also choose to accept all losses accordingly as SD.com nor any vendors will be responsible for losses due to non-insurance.
Dive Assure please reference SingleDivers.com via the drop down menu under GLOBAL PARTNERS. Click here for Dive Assure for either a 'one time' policy OR an annual policy that is either BOTH Dive & Trip Insurance providing PRIMARY COVERAGE with excellent rates and coverage OR JUST TRIP INSURANCE. They offer annual plans as well as one time policies. They are not the cheapest but they are the most hassle free when filing a claim.
Check out where we'll be staying... HERE .... this takes a couple of minutes to load but is REALLY a great look at where we'll be and diving in October! The Media Luna specific portion of the video is at the end but the intro is mostly Media Luna when you see the spectacular ocean view shots and resort shots. The multicolored lobby is Henry Morgan and the full beach front with the long dock is HM but the secluded shots of the ocean and diving are all Media Luna. Its a shame some of the better footage was not specifically under the hotel break out. I have been to all 3 resorts and Media Luna is by far the best!
- Dive shop with lockers for gear very close by and use of hotel swimming pool
- Complementary internet access in the lobby
- FREE lattes and expresso all day long
- SD.com Event Communication Center in the Lobby
- THE HOUSE REEF IS NEXT TO CALVIN'S CRACK ONE OF THE BEST DIVE SITES ON THE ENTIRE ISLAND!!
More on the Hotel:The Media Luna Hotel is made up of a plethora of detached villas that are luxurious and spacious, separated from the lobby and entertainment area of the hotel to ensure maximum relaxation and privacy. The lobby and entertainment area is a relaxing and serene place to check emails, get a drink or just watch the ocean. The pool is situated between the hotel and the aqua water of the North end – home of the islands BEST DIVE SITE. Media Luna is very relaxing and tranquil..far away from all your worries and cares. Stay and dive or just relax and you too will see why so many guests return.
Accommodation:At Media Luna Hotel and Beach Resort we have Single rooms with a King size bed, Double rooms with two Queen size beds, Triple rooms with 1 King size bed and 1 single bed and a luxury, private Suite for those special occasions. Each room is furnished with a spa like private bathroom and hot water and equipped with a fridge, hair dryer and the all important air-conditioning and satellite television – although we do hope you will be outside enjoying the Caribbean weather most of the time. Each of the Media rooms has a private balcony/pat with hammock, hard wood floors and comfortable furniture if you want to spend some time in your room. The rooms have been designed with a natural spa type look and feel, natural colors with dark woods will surround in relaxation!
* Private bathroom with hot water
* Private balcony with hammock or seating area
* Satellite television
* Fridge (mini-bar)
* Telephone (TBD)
* Hair dryer
* Private safe
Dining at Media Luna Resort: Meals are served buffet style and usually offer an array of local foods prepared in a variety of ways. It is convenient, easy and laid out so you can enjoy nightly entertainment while dining! Enjoy a relaxing dinner then watch spectacular sunsets on our spacious pool deck or after your night dive. Have special food needs? NO PROBLEM!!! NOTE: Media Luna now has a new chef from Italy who specializes in vegetarian and non-meat options as well as traditional dishes for all tastes and preferences. In general Roatan serves food with a European style and flair. As more Americans visit their resorts they expand their menus to more US styled meals...Plus with a number of restaurants nearby you can enjoy you won't go hungry but you might not gain 10 pounds either...all in all that's not too bad! - kamala
The Bars: Media Luna has a full service bar right next to the restaurant and just off the lobby. The bartenders are friendly and will serve you mixers if you bring a bottle or two from Duty Free. The snack bar is part of the bar area for a mid day munchie.
Shore Diving: Some of Roatan's best diving is right off the shore right off the resort. Night Diving We can do a boat night dive for $60 per person. We need a minimum of 10 people. Max Depth: 20-130ft but mostly very easy wall and drift diving as well as easy return to the boat dives Water Temp: ave 84+ degrees F Air Temp: High 80's to low 90's degrees F Weather: Late October & early November is EXTREMELY nice weather wise in Roatan.

You're on vacation, so why not spoil yourself a little with a spa treatment? There is an Elisir Day Spa in each of the HM Resorts hotels and resorts.

Our professional beauty and massage therapists are here to de-hair, de-stress and generally make you feel relaxed and wonderful.

A Canopy tour is often called by other names in different countries, either a treetop walk or a flying fox or zip-line experience. Come experience the wilds of Roatan with a tree top view you'll never forget!
A butterfly and tropical bird sanctuary at West End, Roatan. You have to 'see' it to believe it!
Watch the dolphin show each day or if you want a more personal experience and something you will never forget, sign on for the Dolpin Swim & Snorkel.
There are a few different options for horse back riding in Roatan but they all offer pretty much the same thing.
HM Resorts offers complimentary sea kayaks and many of the dive shops offer sea kayaking tours if you prefer the security of a guide.
Roatan's Marine Park is a conservation group who educate people of the needs to keep our oceans clean. The Roatan Marine Park takes in volunteers for water and fish surveys as well as monitoring the dive shops in the area to ensure they are not damaging the reef.
Gumbalimba park offers something for everyone with tame tropical birds and monkeys to play with and feed, kayaking and sailing or horseback riding will keep the whole family entertained.
Punta Gorda is a village on the north side of Roatan where the traditional folclor dancing is performed by the Garifuna ladies – they put on a great show.
Exactly what it sounds like – a farm of iguanas. Here you can handle Iguanas which used to be a popular meat for stew on Roatan – but these days they're protected.
If you want to explore the Island on your own just rent a car at any of our resorts with your Guest Relation. Budget Rent a Car offers a great service for all our clients at HM Resorts.
See the island by renting a scooter or a motorcycle. We also rent: cell phones to call home, DVD movies and DVD players, as well as 3G modems to stay in touch online. For your convenience, we are located in West Bay and in West End.
UPDATED TRAINING UPDATE:
1. Wreck Certification - includes use of a reel, intro to penetration, running a line, etc.
2. Advanced Open Water - includes several 'advanced dives' such as navigation, night, and deep plus several choices of your own including photography, peak bouyancy, etc.
3. Solo Certification - This cert will enable you to dive independently of a human dive buddy by training you to dive with a mechanical dive buddy aka a pony bottle or stage bottle. - Ask about the 'enhanced solo skills' where the instructor will challenge you with several additional skills that will complement your solo cert skills enabling you to be even MORE independent and self sufficient in the water.
