It is set on the western most tip of the island overlooking the beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

The Meridian has old-world European styling with a Mediterranean feel. The grounds are lushly landscaped with a newly opened restaurant. An infinity pool is situated along the beach where you can enjoy the sunset. A larger tropical swimming pool with a swim up bar is expected to be completed in the spring of 2017.

About Gordon & Arlene Barr

Our family of four was looking for a investment and retirement property for later in life. We live in Calgary and love Canada but sometimes the winters are a bit long!

Gordon & Arlene Barr purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gordon & Arlene Barr chose West Bay Beach

We visited Roatan as a family in the summer of 2013 and we all fell in love with the island. We stayed at The Meridian and during our trip we looked at other resorts and homes. As the guy said on House Hunters International, 'We didn't come 2000 miles not to go the last 200 yards to live on the beach'...and that thought stuck with us as we looked at different places for sale. Nothing compared to The Meridian! It is private, luxurious and the views are unparalleled, hear and see the ocean while sitting on the front porch or rooftop patio, or gaze at the amazingly clear night sky...all this and just over a five minute walk to West Bay which is one of the nicest beaches in the Caribbean.

What makes this condo unique

Sitting on the front veranda outside the master bedroom and living room, you overlook a private beach and watch the surf break over the reef just in front of two of Roatan's best drift dive sites. The Honduran hardwood, travertine flooring, and showers, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and all furnishings are top rate. The private rooftop pool and patio are what set this villa apart from the rest. Imagine soaking in your own private pool with a glass of wine or a beer looking out over the Caribbean soaking up the sun or watching the won't want to leave!

What a great piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a delightful two weeks at The SandBarr in The Meridian at Lighthouse Point. What an amazing location, right on the western tip of the island. The views are to die for; on a clear day you can see right across to the mountains of the mainland as well as Utila, the westernmost of the Bay Islands. Just steps from the beautiful beach or the amazing pool, we found this to be an incredibly easy place to kick back, relax and recharge life's batteries. The snorkelling off the point was amazing and it proved quite manageable to go all the way around to West Bay beach, even for an average swimmer!

The SandBarr is an upscale unit with plenty of space and only the best of amenities. The fully equipped kitchen made it easy to prepare meals when we stayed in to eat...bearing in mind there is an onsite restaurant (Kismet) and the many restaurants of West Bay are only a short 15 minute walk away. We spent many of our evenings-in on the rooftop deck (with pool) watching the sunset and then star-gazing...truly amazing to see the sky without the light pollution of most of urban North America.

The Meridian's team was friendly and helpful. As we are regulars on the island we have a pretty good sense of what options there are, but for first-time visitors (and perhaps even island veterans) it was great to know that the staff were always ready to help and set up tours and excursions, or even to just assist with taxis to get about. A great team!

Overall, we would rate The SandBarr as an outstanding high-end value for any vacation. Arlene and Gord were terrific owner-hosts, ready to assist us before and during our stay, making us feel very welcome in their 'home away from home'!

Owner's Response: We love the rooftop deck too - it is my favorite spot in our villa and I am so glad you enjoyed it as well. On our last trip, we snorkeled from The Meridian to West Bay Beach and then walked back to the villa. We saw so many interesting fish and I can't wait till our next trip to snorkel it again. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of The SandBarr. We hope you will think of The SandBarr on any future visits to Roatan. Cheers, Arlene and Gord

The Meridian's "SandBarr" can only be defined as Absolute Vacation Bliss.

  • 5 of 5

The Meridian at lighthouse point, is situated on the west end of Roatan in what can only be defined as the perfect location to embrace a slice of paradise.

The Owners of the Meridian have painstakingly designed, built and continue to implement a world class "resort" characteristic atmosphere, minus all the stress, pressure and traffic we have commonly encountered at other complexes. In fact we felt like we were part of a community/neighborhood and very welcomed by other guest and staff.

The community pool is an oasis. nestled in the middle of the complex, designed with curves, nooks and islands to boot- it is a great place to refresh and relax, as we did often after spending time either at the West Bay beach, zip lining, visiting Little French key or several scuba excursions.

We had lunch and dinner at the onsite Kismet restaurant which we highly recommend, if not just for the meal, but its location, right on the beach just steps away from the SandBarr villa, staffed by extremely courteous and professional personnel.

We brought our own SUP inflatable, but also rented snorkel gear and Kayaks from the Kismet as well since it is a part of the Meridian.

Note: there are guidelines as where to snorkel and Kayak from the Meridian beach- most notably is to head to the end of the peninsula on the right and then head east to West bay Beach staying close to the rocky shoreline- I promise that you will not find better snorkeling or kayaking and for that matter diving so close to where you are staying - it is breathtaking to view the aquatic life in what feels and looks like an aquarium. We were out there everyday and my daughter and I did two drift dives off the shoreline- that is how strong the current can be just north west of the beach. There is nothing we have ever done as a traveling family, that can compare to taking a kayak/stand up paddle board run to West bay beach and hanging out at the beach having lunch and drinks, and taking part in beach activities like jet ski's only to take a leisurely ride back to the our beach at the Meridian/SandBarr and to cap it off with a relaxing time at the pool.

To close the comments I do not want to understate at how well maintained, furnished and inviting the SandBarr villa is; Gordon and Arlene Barr are doing it right- from the time of booking, to quickly fixing a minor plumbing issue during our stay - to taking the time to layout activities in and around the area. they rock- we will be back.

Complete Paradise

  • 5 of 5

First of all this was our first trip to Roatan. The Meridian is a beautiful place in a gorgeous setting. I was very pleased with the upscale accommodations and comfort of this villa. The pictures alone do not do this unit justice. I highly recommend renting this unit. The service was very accommodating to every need as well. My husband and I hope to bring our family back soon! The Barr family has been very responsive to every question in a timely manner. Thank you Arlene and Gordon Barr for sharing your lovely vacation home.

Great stay at the SandBarr

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a family vacation at the SandBarr villa at the Meridian. We loved everything about it. The villa was very comfortable for six adults and ideally located for us. It's in a quiet area of the island and only a short walk to West Bay beach & restaurants. We especially enjoyed the rooftop deck where we enjoyed the sunset each evening. The pool is beautiful and the "private" beach is quiet & relaxing. A short swim from the beach is some of the best snorkeling we have ever experienced. We will return.

Great vacation location

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Roatan for the last 12 years. This has been by far the best location and a great unit with all the amenities. Each bedroom has it's own private bath with television and patio. Very functional kitchen. Very quiet location with it's own quiet beach. About a 10-15 minutes walk to West Bay beach with all the restaurants, beach bars & shops. Excellent snorkeling directly in front of the unit (help protect the coral by not touching). Very nice swimming pool with nicely landscaped premises. 24 hour security guards are English speaking. Great views of the Caribbean Sea! Nice beach bar, Kismet, in front of the unit for guests.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent review of The SandBarr in Roatan. We think that the snorkeling in front of our unit is amazing and you are correct about being aware not to touch or step on the coral, it is surprising and sad on how many people disregard the reef. We think our villa is pretty great too - we look forward to having you stay again on a return visit to Roatan. All the best - Arlene and Gordon

Best Resort on Roatan!

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved this place! It is a beautiful island paradise! The villa was very spacious and beautifully decorated, with amazing views of the ocean! Our family of 6 was very comfortable and we loved the high end appliances and quality finishings throughout the villa. Access to the pool and beach area is just steps away and both provide a high degree of privacy and relaxation. The beach restaurant is very good and the staff are friendly and attentive throughout the property. The villa has 3 separate patios, including an amazing rooftop patio with plunge pool! This property offers all of the comforts of home and we would definitely recommend the "Sand Barr" for your next vacation as it's one of the most luxurious properties in the Caribbean!

Roatan is one of the top snorkeling and scuba diving spots in the world, and The Meridian is located on one of the most beautiful spots on the island! Walk the 680 feet of beachfront, from the sandy beach to the famous 'Iron Shore' were you might spot hummingbirds, the local toucan, or iguana's. You can even plan to have your wedding on the grounds, ask for more information

Less than ten minutes walk and you will be on West Bay Beach, one of the nicest in the Caribbean. Rent an umbrella and lounge chair or set up your towel and relax in the sugar white sand. Restaurants and bars line the beach, and happy hour is available at most places! You can rent paddleboards, jet skis, parasail, play on the huge inflatable slide / play structure, go fishing, or catch a water taxi to West End.

Located at the very tip of the island, you are in a safe location away from the crowds and noise from the bars that you experience on West Bay Beach, especially when the cruise ships are in port. Kismet is a new restaurant on site that opened in 2014. Relax on the nearly private beach, swim or snorkel in front of the villa. World famous West Bay Beach is less than 10 minutes walk away...experience the warm, calm waters and sugar white sand! In the morning you can sip your coffee and watch the cruise ships pass by, maybe you will even see dolphins swim past the point. Much of Roatan is surrounded by a marine park, some of the best snorkeling or scuba diving in the world awaits you. Washer/dryer is not available, may be negotiated for long term stays. If laundry is a must then there is a $9 extra charge per load - washed and folded by the very helpful staff at The Meridian.
