"This is the second time we've rented Ocho Palmas and it was just as awesome and relaxing this time as it was the first.
Ruth and Brad do a great job managing this property. They're very communicative throughout the entire rental process and check-in is a breeze. Their office is close by and there's always someone available if you need something during your stay.
I can't think of much to say that hasn't been said already. The previous reviews, including mine, speak for themselves and the pictures of this house really don't do it justice. You have to see it to believe it. I heard from several people that it's one of the nicest homes on the island. You will not be disappointed."

"My husband and I spent 4 weeks at this wonderful beach getaway. I can't say enough how wonderful this clean and beautifully decorated Playa Bonita is. Thank you Diana and Michael for your hospitality. The yard/garden is racked every day by the care take Roger, he greets you every morning with his happy and kind smile. The location is superb, it can't be beat. You can walk to everything. And when your on your patio its so private, yet only steps to the wonderful beach of West Bay. Playa Bonita is awesome!!!"

"This was my second visit to Roatan/Infinity Bay but my first time booking directly through a villa owner. I was very hesitant but Rick was more than willing to answer all my questions and keep the communication lines open for me, which was invaluable in making the decision to rent this villa for a week for myself, family and friends. I am very grateful for a pleasent transaction because with the rising prices at Infinity, we wouldn't have been able to afford booking through the hotel. Top marks for the owner! He also recommended a certain scuba dive shop that we tried out and loved, for over a dozen dives. The location is unmatched for food and entertainment, but if you want groceries, you NEED to go inland... The closest convenience store charges $7 for a bag of chips.
The room was clean, had updated appliances, great air conditioning, and was stocked with everything from pots and pans to wine glasses.
Unfortunately, having stayed at Infinity four years ago, we did notice a decrease in their customer service. I could give several examples but none of them are the fault of the owner, so I won't elaborate, but it does deserve a mention. The elevator also didn't work for our entire stay.
Infinity Bay is still one of the best resorts available and the location is really phenomenal, as far as beaches and beach restaurants go, as well as being steps away from "water taxis" that will take you to West End for more restaurants and nightlife for $8 round trip. The location of this particular villa is in a very quiet section of the resort as well. I would encourage anyone to deal with this couple--they have integrity and also enjoy Roatan themselves which means they're sincerely interested in your satisfaction as well."

"Karen provides information you need regarding the house, the area and Roatan. Her information letter helped us all feel comfortable with the area since this was our first time to Roatan. She was quick to respond anytime I had questions prior to our trip. The kitchen is fully stocked and the accommodations are comfortable.
Our party of four had a wonderful time at Orchid Breeze. The house is ideal for two couples. The location was superb. It’s an easy walk to West Bay and West End, which we enjoyed doing. Take a water taxi back if you are laden with groceries. I highly recommend you take a snorkeling/diving/island tour with Denisse, Clearwater Adventures. Fabulouse time!!! Denisse’s office is located down by the beach.
We had some bad experiences which I feel needs to be mentioned. (1) The internet service rarely worked. (2) The AC in the master bedroom ran on high temperature only. We were either frozen out or too warm when we turned it off. (3) The AC in the dining room broke down. We were without AC in the main part of the house for two days. (4) Due to an electrical wire burning up we were out of water for the greater part of a day. In each case we contacted Freddy to alert him of the problem. I also contacted Karen via email. Freddy and Karen were quick to respond and make appropriate repairs. However, we felt that regular maintenance would have prevented the AC and water problem.
We loved the location but will rent a house with a pool next time. Hopefully hanging out at the pool will prevent numerous bug bites. The four of us used 9 cans of deep woods Off in two weeks and still suffered terrible bites."
