Recent Sandy Bay reviews

  • Awesome Home and Location

    "Best vacation ever! We were three couples and two individuals staying in this luxurious 5 bedroom, 5 bath home right on the beach. We never felt overcrowded, even with all eight of us in the common area (although 6 in the plunge pool got a little cozy). The house had all the modern conveniences of home (including satellite TV and Wifi service) with a full kitchen with dishwasher and a laundry room (so you can pack lighter and just run a load of wash mid-week). The best part is the location, right on the beach with a private dock 20 feet from the back door. The reef and the breaking waves are about 200 yards offshore, and you can use the provided snorkeling equipment and kayaks to go out and see the beautiful corals and tropical fish. The back deck and the plunge pool make a nice place to end the day watching the sun set over the Caribbean Sea. In the morning they make a nice place to sit and listen as the island comes to life with kids going to school and fishermen boating along the reef, and all were quick with a hello and a wave. Pirates View is within a quick taxi ride of West End and Anthony’s Key for the shoping, bars and restaurants (You can walk to Anthony’s Key, but the cab ride is easier and safer considering there are no sidewalks along the road). West Bay is a slightly longer cab ride (around 10 minutes), but has more of the “resort beach” atmosphere with shops offering paddle boarding, parasailing and wind surfing along the pristine white sand."

  • Wonderful Honeymoon

    "My husband and I had an amazing time staying at Al & Sandra's Spooky Channel Guest House. Everything you see in this listing is accurate and it is above and beyond what we were anticipating. We were greeted at the airport by Al who took us to the very nice grocery store right away. During the course of our 2 week stay, Al & Sandra offered numerous times to take us to the grocery store, West End, West Bay, etc. whenever they went anywhere and it was always appreciated when we carpooled. The house is nice, cozy, and very clean. Its well stocked with condiments, towels, linens, etc. When we werent spending our time at the beach in West End or West Bay, we absolutely LOVED swimming wtih the dolphins at Anthony Keys Resort, and talk to Al about deep sea fishing if that is your thing- he hooked us up with 2 memorable fishing excursions and we had a blast! Al & Sandra recommened great restaurants- you have to have the caribbean jerk chicken at Blue Parrot! We also loved utilizing the fabulous dock right out front- which was fantastic to snorkel from- lots of good fish, coral, and sea creatures to see! Whether is was lounging around on the beach or dock, or playing hours of rummy on the nice little screened in porch with a Salva Vida Beer (our favorite), Al & Sandra made our stay fantastic, and when I got sick and had to stay 3 more days, they were very helpful and understanding. They are great people to have a beer with and they are very knowledgable abotu the island. You will have a blast and I hope we can return someday to see Roatan, and Al & Sandra. Pack light and bring bug spray for the terrible sand flies is the best advice I can give you."

  • Can't wait to return!!

    "We spent 2 weeks at Villa Azul with 2 other couples and had a wonderful time! The house was perfect and the location - excellent! Snorkeling the reef was awesome and the turtles were our favorites!! Well, besides Chica, the neighboring dog who is absolutely adorable (and that comes from a non-dog lover!) Peter, the owner, is great to work with and Vanessa is wonderful - helpful and fun!! We enjoyed all the neighbors and return vacationers and really look forward to seeing all of them on our return trip next year! The house had everything we needed and then some. It's easy to get into West End and West Bay and far enough away to be quiet and relaxing! But if you prefer to get a bite to eat at the Blue Parrot, which is just a short walk away, the food is great and the employees are delightful!! Perfect vacation!!"

  • Hobbie's Hideaway is a hidden gem!

    "Another great stay at Hobbie's Hideaway! Hiring Miss Betty, an islander cook with culinary skills that could challenge to be the best on the island, was the smartest decision I made! Miss Betti cooked so many amazing dishes, cleaned the kitchen after serving our family and made our family vacation less work for mom so that I could enjoy the rest and relaxation as well. Miss Laura coming in to clean up behind my pack of boys definitely took a load off of mom as well! John and Sue's hospitality and great island "home" make the stay a lot of fun for all. Between fishing and snorkeling trips with Ronald, the boat captain and property caretaker, the kayaks and paddle boat, snorkel gear and amazing beachfront, grilling on the beach, maid service, traditional island cook, massive covered deck with stereo system and big screen, great security from Taboo the island "wonderdog", the knowledgeable and personal service whether it be seclusion and privacy or fun gatherings amongst the guests, Hobbie's Hideaway is the best, smartest and reasonably priced island getaway and home away from home. You couldn't ask for better location, view, lodging and hosts than you will find at Hobbie's. John, Miss Sue, Ronald, Miss Laura and Miss Betti make vacation and island flair relaxing, fun and always a great time! I know we will keep coming back to Hobbie's Hideaway as long as John & Sue will keep letting us come!"
