About Matt Adkins
Villa del RIU has been a dream of ours since we first sank our toes in the silky white sand beaches of West Bay. Roatan is such a special place for us and I am sure it will be for you too. The friendly people and welcoming culture make Roatan a home to everyone that visits.
Matt Adkins purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Matt Adkins chose Lighthouse Estates
This location is ideal for any reason of vacation. West Bay has an amazing white sand beach with warm waters and world class diving and snorkeling. It also hosts numerous cruise ships and visitors every year. Villa del RIU is minutes from all of the action but far enough to be private and secluded offering the best of both entertainment and relaxation.
Pool / Spa
Awesome getaway spot!
We had a great time at this Meridian Condo. It had everything needed to make our stay perfect. Thank you so much to Matt for all of the helpful information that was sent ahead of time to plan the perfect trip.
Just returned from an amazing trip to Roatan. Loved this villa and the entire property. The view from the living room and balcony everyday was incredible. The beds are nice as well. The pool at the property is so nice as was the food at the restaurant which is right below the villa. I went to get something to go one night and they offered to deliver it when it was ready! The services all around at this property are amazing. We never had to worry about a car as they either took us or got us one very quickly and they had many recommendations for things to do as well. The property Manager Afan was impressive - so kind, and helped us with anything we needed. It was like having your own private house in a very quiet resort. West Beach is 5 minutes away by car and everything seemed relatively close. Excellent location and would return!
We Stayed at this beautiful property for 8 nights. We had 7 people and there was lots of space and it was beautiful inside and out.The location was perfect. It was a close walk or drive to the beach. The only thing I would recommend is a car. I have 6 year old twins and it was just easier after a long day at the beach to jump in the car to head home. Also with the car we had the ease of going to dinner every night on the West End without having to worry about getting a cab. We also explored the Island which was such a blast. The staff at the Meridian were awesome and so helpful. This property is quiet and not on the main beach with all the hustle and bustle. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Roatan and our villa. We would love to have you come back.
The villa was really nice with spectacular sunset views! The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked if you want to prepare any meals yourself. They do provide a water cooler with jugs of water which is nice so you don't have to buy water at the store. The resort is pretty private and quiet. Because the beach is only accessible through the property it is not accessed by anyone outside of the resort. The resort staff were all excellent! The food and drinks were great. We would definitely consider returning for another visit.
We arrived at the villa and it was as beautiful as it is in the pictures and so much more. The villa was perfect, luxurious and exceeded our expectations. We travel alot and have rented homes and villas all over the Carribean and this was at the top of our list. The entire property is beautiful and peaceful. The restaurant Kismet and the snorkling right off of the beach was fantastic. I definitely plan on visiting Roatan and the Villa again. Matt was very responsive and informative, the staff at the front desk and restaurant were awesone and our driver Juan Carlos was THE BEST. He catered to our desires and was always available to drive us all where ever we wanted to go. He booked our tours and ensured that we were well taken care of and satisfied. Thanks again Matt and Juan. You will not be disappointed vacationing in Villa de Rui.
Disappointing Stay - Construction!!
I booked this property (3 bed 3 bath condo with roof top pool) for a family vacation. My husband and I have visited Roatan on many occasions but it was my parents first trip and privacy and quiet were at the top of their want list. I found the property through VRBO but was asked by the owner to communicate directly. I specifically asked about privacy and quiet and was assured that is not a problem at The Meridian as most of the owners don't rent their units. Unfortunately he did NOT disclose the fact that the entire property is under construction. Workers started at 7 a.m. sharp every single day in the unit NEXT DOOR and all throughout the property!! We literally fled the unit every morning to escape the noise.
Additionally, repairmen were in our unit for 5 hours on one day repairing a washing machine that was locked out to us. I understand the need for repairs but that should be done when the place is not rented out.
We lost power twice (which is normal on this island) but in a property that charges this much they should have a generator at the ready and operating. We also were without water on 2 occasions.
The roof top deck and pool were lovely but the lack of shade made this space completely unusable unless you want to feel like a turkey on Thankgiving Day!
As to this particular unit... there is no on site host so if you have issues you have to contact the owner who is out of the country. Not very convenient.
All in all, the unit was nice and well appointed as advertised but I was quite disappointed and cannot in give this place a good review. This unit was the most expensive place we have ever stayed and I was incredibly disappointed. I have sent an email to the owner asking for 1 night + tax refund. I feel that this is a reasonable request. I still have not heard back from him.
Villa del RIU is located right on a silky white sand beach at the western point of Roatan. Excellent snorkeling, diving, and fishing right off the beach. The restaurant/bar is top notch. Views from the villa are breath-taking in so many directions. A short 10 minute walk to the popular West Bay Beach with large resorts, shopping, dive shops, and markets. A quick water taxi ride to West End for an island nightlife, clubs, and cultural shopping. The villa is within a short walk to days worth of adventure, pristine beach, and best reef in the Caribbean. However just far enough from busy beaches, crowds of the cruise ships, and nightlife for when you want to relax, have a romantic retreat, or take a shady siesta in a hammock listening to the waves. Its the best of both vacations in one location.
