"We visited Roatan from 7/31 to 8/12. We had originally booked another property but Roatan Property Mgmt told us the pool would be closed for renovations. I asked if they had another property with pool and almost immediately they offered us the Big Dolphin House. They were great to work with, everything went smooth and this property is beautiful!!!. We were close to the tourist part of Roatan but not close enough to be disturbed by the noise. Miguel, the caretaker, and his family are great people, very nice and they keep the property clean at all times. He's always cleaning the pool. The pool is great, our girls (7 and 5) loved it!! The house was very comfortable, It had everything we needed. Roatan Property Mgmt even provided drinking water for us for our entire stay, the house had supplies already (toilet paper, etc). Very well equipped. The AC worked great but it's only in the bedrooms and living room, so sometime the hall upstairs is hotter than other parts in the house. The only thing we didnt like was the fact that there's no balcony to the sliding windows surrounding the living room, so with little kids you have to be careful, but it was not a problem. We just keep them closed and turn on the AC at night. The property is right off the beautiful beach, the views are just breath taking. We would definitely stay here again!!!"

Quite little piece of Heaven with everything you need within walking distance!
"Everything was just perfect for us! We like to be away from the hustle and bustle. Sandy Bay is more residents than tourist. If you prefer night life, parties etc- then head or stay on West Bay/End. Snorkeling is amazing right our front, no need to hire anyone. Defiantly do a few dives with local dive shops. Theres 2 within walking distance, both good. (deep sea fishing and dives are literally a 3 min boat ride out) Good food/restaurants & spa a few steps down beach. Only place I really recommend you take a taxi or have Channin take you is to Little French Key. Just the pictures of that place are worth it! People who saw my pictures thought I was in a pool & not the ocean ! Daniel Johnsons zoo is a must. Trust me. =) The beds were comfortable. Everything you need in the house. We never needed to turn on AC. Safety is not an issue. I honestly think Roatan gets a bad rap because of the mainland of Honduras. There is a monitored alarm system ..if you do feel uneasy in another country. Plus Jimmy is usually on the grounds during the day- he helps maintain all the lush landscaping. Tip: Go no where without your camera- every time I did, I missed getting a picture of something Ive never seen before! Channin & Kimberly are the property managers, and he can take you on tours and anywhere you want to go. Suzanne was helpful with a smooth transaction and helpful info. Great people! Oh, and just about everyone speaks english on the island so there is no language barrier."

"We had such a great 2 weeks with John and Sue. We enjoyed the property to the fullest. The dock with hamacks and star gazing, the huge patio with bbq for dinners outside, the proximity of the beautiful coral reef, the free kayaks and snorkling gear, clean rooms with functionnal AC... cannot ask for more. Add to this the most helpful and kind hosts! They pick you up from the airport (and drive back), take you to the store regularly and even go out of their way to make you you enjoy your stay. John took us to Coxen Hole to buy fresh seafood instead of the grocery store, took us to West end to show us the village, have a few drinks and point out all the best spots. He even invited us to go fishing with him. He usually charters fishing trips, but since there were no planned charters, and he felt like fishing, he decided to invite us!!! 9 baracudas and 1 hour of snorkeling by a wreck, the day was a success!!
So all in all, Roatan is awesome, and John ans Sue make it that much better! They are great hosts, and their rates are some of the lowest you will find."
