Recent Roatan reviews

  • Decompression

    "My wife and I spent 9 nights to celebrate our 60th birthdays. I really can't add much more to the existing reviews except you can believe them. A great place for a self-sufficient couple. We didn't rent a car because as we knew from our visit over 20 years ago that the roads aren't great out in this area. Franklin and Junior picked us up at the airport in Pauls 'Beast' pickup and took us by a modernized grocery store to provision up. We shopped on the fly, but it worked out fine. We were able to buy lobster from a fisherman who stopped at the dock. We also managed to score some lobster and conch on the reefs nearby while snorkeling. All the toys are there for water play, but thankfully no 'waverunner'. Dories are available as water taxis to take you to nearby restaurants on the water if you want a lunch out. We enjoyed BJ's and Pokeys. The canal (mangrove tunnel) is pretty cool if you can catch a ride through there at high tide, and a quick ride over to Jonesville, or Oak Ridge for limited food/drink provisions (we didn't plan the rum supply correctly). We were lucky enough to catch a ride by ocean to Fantasy Island toward French Harbor for a lunch and feeding of the lion. Met some happy people over there. Thankfully, we met Paul on the last couple of days we were there and enjoyed spending time with him, a most gracious host. Franklin managed our maintenance issues handsomely considering the 'island time' effect. Junior was a joy and hooked us up with a lot of local knowledge. We felt secure because of his omnipresence on the property. Diving on the Mesoamerican Reef is the best you will find within 20 hours airline flight. This was only 3 hours from Atlanta......."

  • Nearly as we expected

    "As for the positives, the other reviewers were spot on. The lack of other tourists and thus the peace and quiet was amazing. That, coupled with still being close to the necessities, makes the location nearly unbeatable. Just know that you will be removed from most other signs of humanity, and I personally would under no circumstance try and drive back to the house at night, especially after a couple of libations. You'll find out why after the first time you head down the dirt road and across the wooden road through the mangrove. The only downside, and I really wrestled with docking a star for this, is that the bug situation is no joke. Besides scuba diving (which was great), the other thing I was really looking forward to was sitting out on the deck at night, having a drink, and enjoying the tranquility. The sun set at about 6pm, and shortly after that the insects would appear. My wife was pretty squeamish with the various bugs flying around, and my Kindle screen was a magnet for all sorts of interesting (but annoying) creatures. By the end of our stay we unfortunately found ourselves inside more than we would have liked. We also had to keep the door to the kitchen closed because of the sheer number of insects that would have taken up residence with it open. Perhaps screening-in the deck, like the house two doors down, would be a solution. We gladly would have given up some of the view in exchange for some relief from the bugs. Maybe the insects won't bother you, but it was a little disappointing for us. As for the sand flies, the little red welts left by them don't itch, but they're not a good look for most people. The local bug spray in the blue bottle seemed to work, but it's also oil-based so you might keep the bugs away but you'll be asking for a serious sunburn. We went with the deet-based alternatives, and you're going to want to use it early and often. Two other tips: - I'm not sure how anyone could sleep on the bottom floors with the windows open and not get eaten alive by the bugs. We immediately opened the windows when we arrived, and within a couple of hours we had mosquitos and other guests in both downstairs bedrooms, despite the screen on the windows. Perhaps this isn't an issue on the top floor bedroom, but it certainly was downstairs. - The Trooper is no longer a rental option, but you'll need 4WD. Work with Liz ahead of time and she'll find you an alternative."

  • Perfect location

    "Casa Ladera is a perfect location for a quiet retreat but just a short walk to all of the resteraunts and shops of west end, no car needed. Diving was perfect including the shark dive which is highly recommended. The kids liked swimming in the pool and watching the stars at night after a long day on the water. The multi level layout of Casa Ladera allowed for the kids to have their own space and for the adults to have their own space for "adult time". Definitely coming back!"

  • Exquisite

    "We just departed on the 4th after an extraordinary week in which my wife and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary and enjoyed the marvels of this home with our two children, diving the reef, and exploring the forest. Phil and his excellent staff are at your beckon call for any queries or fabulous dining. The home is stunning and makes to most of the ocean views and starlit skies. The small villages nearby can be walked to easily for a genuine taste of Caribbean life. A boat trip out to the tinier islands (just patches of sand with fringing reef and a few trees) to the east is must. The 4 wheel drive is essential on the Roatan roads and a real benefit of the rental. The diving opportunities are truly fantastic and the entire island of Roatan is surrounded by the full spectrum of coral and sea-life varieties. If you don't dive, this is the place to learn. Sun divers on Half Moon Bay were first rate. We never return to the same spot, but will certainly never forget the wonderful week we spent here."
