Recent West Bay Beach reviews
Spring get away
"The house is very nice, view is gorgeous. With the windows open for a cross breeze it wasn't really necessary to run the AC very much. Very relaxing to just lie in the hammock with a book. The kitchen is well equipped but the grill should be replaced. A few small maintainence items were taken care right away. It's not convenenient to the beach or town areas so for short stays if you want to just walk out onto the beach you should consider staying in town, but if you are staying longer and/or looking for peace and quiet I would recommend it however you may want to consider renting a car for convenience although taxis are easily available."

"I would like to thank Bruce for doing a great job of describing everything to a T. We were very pleased with the location and convience of the condo. Security was on site and we felt very safe. I highly recommend this condo for small families or a romantic getaway for a couple."

"We just returned from our trip to Roatan and our stay at the Pink Orchid. We were very pleased with our trip and the ease of dealing with the owners, on site staff and local residents. The owners were very informative and easy to contact prior to our trip and the house is exactly (or better) as described on the website. Location is fantastic with an easy walk either way down the beach to the West End community or West Bay Beach for shopping, dining and entertainment. We went with our two teenage children and another couple and the house was perfect for 6 people. Snorkeling and floating right from the dock was great and the kayak trips to the reef for snorkeling (a very short paddle) were off the hook! We saw sea turtles, a moray eel and several barracuda as well as many beautiful reef fish. The local contacts were really good and we had a local chef come prepare and island feast at the Pink Orchid one evening. We caught tuna on a fishing trip right outside the reef in front of the house and went zip lining one day through the jungle very close to the house. Water taxis were readily available right from the dock and it never took more than a few minutes to flag one down. All in all a fantastic trip for our family. I also think that we should report that the ladies on our trip walked by themselves during the day to both the West End community and West Bay and never felt uncomfortable or threatened during these ventures. It seemed much safer than some of the other locations in Central America / Caribbean region we researched. We did heed the owners advice and stay off the beaches after dark."

"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."
