We did the South Beach experience with Carnival. It was really a private resort called Parrot Bay. There was a man made beach inlet. No waves calm clear water white sand beach, palm trees, look over a wall to the real ocean front no beach just rock, good buffet, beautiful pool. However I did not like it, why? Because I had no idea it was a totally private beach. I like to mingle with the locals and get a taste of other cultures. None here it was as American as a resort at Disney World. However if that is your thing you might enjoy it. No pushy venders here, but I didn't feel like I was in Roatan Honduras.If I had the chance to do it over I would go to Tabyana Beach and Gumbalimba park so I could see Monkeys and other animals up close and personal and have time at the beach.
