Welcome to Seaside Inn - we are veteran owned and operated (USMC!). We purchased this gorgeous property in March of 2014 and we hope to be the best little resort on West Bay Beach.
Seaside Inn is located on a sandy lane within 2 minutes walking from the beach. The location is awesome! We’re nestled in the jungle away from all the bustle of the beach but close enough to enjoy the restaurants, bars and activities West Bay has to offer.
We have a new, beautiful private pool! Our guests can lounge around our pool for a lazy vacation day or enjoy a nice evening cocktail after a hard day of playing on the island. Our pool is not open to the public – it is for Seaside Inn’s private use :).
A delicious breakfast will be served during high season, November 15, 2014 – April 30, 2015. We have a wonderful daily special gourmet choice, along with a second hearty choice of potatoes/eggs/ham or bacon/toast or a lighter option: yogurt parfait with homemade granola layered with non-fat vanilla yogurt, topped with fresh fruit. There are also two other “Grab & Go” choices, a very tasty egg/ham/cheese breakfast sandwich or bagel and cream cheese.
Unlike the mega resorts, we are a small private resort which provides our guests with a calm, quiet retreat away from the crowds. We cater to our guests and strive to provide a wonderful stay on this incredible island.

If you’re a diver, there’s a 5-star PADI dive center located on the beach at the end of our road. If you love to snorkel then you’ll be glad to know that Roatan is surrounded by a fantastic close-in reef just feet from the shore.
West Bay beach is stunning, crystal clear turquoise water with a white sandy beach. And it’s all just a short stroll from our property where there are many restaurants, bars and resorts offering activities such as para-sailing or deep sea fishing! At the nearby West Bay Mall, our guests enjoy the coffee shop and convenience market with delicatessen that also offers a take-out menu!
As you walk down to the beach, the public dock is conveniently located to your right where you can catch a water taxi to the tourist town of West End for more shopping, diving, and of course, more snorkeling! Island tours are available by water and land taxis to whisk you away for a day at the spa, Anthony’s Key to swim with the dolphins, zip lines, the Iguana Park, and much, much more!

I grew up in upstate New York. My father was a U.S. Forest Service ranger, so we moved to Colorado when I was in high school. I then went on to serve 4 years in the Marine Corps, then 4 years of college in Oregon and Arizona. I graduated from Arizona State in 1985. I move around a lot, taking different jobs as a software engineer. My last job was working for Hewlett-Packard for 15 years. I always have vacationed in the tropics and decided that before I got too old, I'd do something different and live in the Caribbean. After a lot of searching, Roatan was definitely the choice!
Carolyn Belfor purchased this house in 2014
I fell in love with this beautiful home and island after looking at several other Caribbean destinations. The home is in the shaded jungle, just steps from the most beautiful beach on Roatan. West Bay Beach was recently named by the 'Island Magazine' as one of the top ten beaches in the world. The island is small, so you get to know everyone and it develops a sense of family.
Carolyn met my husband & I on arrival & made us feel right at home. She was a gracious host, ensuring we had everything we needed during our stay. Having coffee on the lovely covered porch & watching the macaws & hummingbirds was a delight. Our room was comfortable with a quaint kitchenette, just perfect for our needs. Thank you Carolyn for a lovely stay... We'll see you soon. Ian & Cathy
We had a fantastic stay at the Seaside Inn (Toucan Suite) at the end of March this year. The accommodations were everything we expected, and more! From the seating area with comfortable furniture and lovely hammocks to the private pool, it was perfect. It is a very well-kept and beautiful building with lush greenery. The location was perfect too, a very short walk down to the beach, shops, restaurants, yet away from all that when we just wanted to go back and relax or chill in the pool. The included breakfast each morning was delicious. Carolyn is a great cook, and Roy served it up right on time with a big smile (great guy!). They were both so helpful in suggesting places to go and things to do. During our stay we had an opportunity to check out some of the other places we had considered staying. it was easy to see that Seaside Inn was the perfect choice for us! We would recommend staying here in a heartbeat!
This is a beautiful and comfortable B&B with attentive and friendly staff. The porch and the pool were both relaxing places to escape to when we needed to retreat from the heat of the beach. Carolyn's breakfasts are outstanding and served on that beautiful porch. Mornings were special dining in the gentle Caribbean breezes with other lovely guests. Evening dining options abound along West Bay beach which is a lovely stroll after a day in the warm sun. If you like to dive or snorkel, West Bay Divers is a great shop on the way to the beach. We can't wait to return and enjoy another great vacation!
My husband and I spent our honeymoon in the Macaw Suite, and it was perfect! The room was perfectly appointed, and our hosts were very helpful and friendly. Carolyn arranged for her driver, George, to pick us up at the airport and to take us to buy groceries. He also showed us around and helped us find other activities that we would enjoy doing.
We loved that the setting is very private and off the beaten path while still being close to the beach an restaurants. Carolyn is a wonderful host, and made us feel right at home and well cared for. If we ever have the opportunity to return to Roatan, without a doubt, this is where we will stay!
Stayed a week in the Toucan Suite. The inn is really well planned for a beach vacation. Carolyn, the owner, has thought of pretty much everything. She provides a local cell phone with important numbers on it... she includes beach towels and basic cooking gear so you can sort coffee or breakfast on your own... there is cable TV and a DVD player and she even has a pretty good library of DVDs to borrow... There is ice, a fridge, a grill for cooking out on the deck...all very well planned. She has also arranged some great deals with Beachers (the local restaurant on the beach - free beach chair/umbrella), discounts at West Bay Dive Shop (a great bunch of people), etc. I had a wonderful time! Carolyn is a gracious hostess and a wonderful person to boot - i feel blessed to have made a new friend!
We stayed in the Toucan Suite from May 2nd to 12th and enjoyed it very much. We had everything we needed and safety was never a concern. The Seaside Inn is lovely and well maintained - we especially loved the huge deck surrounded by trees, the beautiful pool, and the blender with enough oomph to whip up the occasional daiquiri. Carolyn is a gracious hostess who provided us with tips on what to do in Roatan, arranged a car rental, and a snorkeling and mangrove tour. We appreciated having access to the lounges at Beachers where we enjoyed many meals and many more Monkey La La’s. Staying here enabled us to get preferred rates at West Bay Divers who we found to be excellent. If you are looking for a cost effective, secluded location just off West Bay Beach I would not hesitate to recommend.

The A/C is separately metered. Some guests don't use the AC so this keeps the rates low. If you choose to use the A/C, it costs about $5-$7 per day depending on the length of time used and how cold you keep it. We read the A/C meter upon arrival and the morning of your departure.
