"We just returned from our fantastic week at La Diosa del Sol. I know this is a cliché, but the photos do not do this house justice. It is absolutely fabulous in every way, north, south, east and west of the Pecos.
From beginning to end, communication was spot on. Liz, the property manager, met us at the airport and escorted us first to do some shopping, and then on to the house. She made everything work seamlessly, from turning the house over to us immaculately clean, complete with cold beer, snacks, local cell phones, and the assurance that if anything were needed, she was just down the road and open to assist us.
The caretaker, George, who lives in a separate house on the estate, was there to help us for whatever might be necessary, 24/7, and did all this without being intrusive. We just cannot say enough about how awesome he is. His English is excellent from living in the U.S. for many years. He knew the best spots on the Politilly reef to snorkel and fish and was a wealth of information about Roatan.
One thing we so appreciated was George's help in getting the kayaks both out and back in to the storage barn, even though we routinely went out twice a day for snorkeling or fishing expeditions. He was always gracious and eager to help. While we were out on the reef, he kept a weather eye out for us, and always met us back at the dock when we returned, ready to help us store the kayaks back in to storage.
But I am saving the best for last, which is the house itself.
There are two master bedrooms, pretty much identical in layout, but each with it's own charm. The upstairs bedroom, on the same level as the great room and veranda, has a queen bed, Jacuzzi tub, and this amazing shower that is "outdoors" like in Bali. The downstairs master has a king bed, no tub, and a "roof" over the outdoor shower and opens out to the pool and entertainment area. There are two more guest rooms, and 2 guest baths, one on each level.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you might need. If it isn't there, it's because you don't need it. Simply amazing.
Wi-Fi works well, though a little slow. No need for streaming video anyway since the house has a DVD collection that would keep you entertained for a year.
The reef in front of the house is amazing. The coral is pristine, there are multitudes of fish, and it's easily accessible from the house by the provided kayaks.
We give this house an unqualified thumbs up and would stay here again in a heartbeat."
