Better than advertised!
We just got back from a week in paradise staying in the Purple Palace house. Everything about this house was great. Privacy, the Views, the pool, the decor, even the little geckos running around. It was incredible.
There were some little bugs, which are literally everywhere on the island, so expect that and don't fuss over it. Buy and liberally use a product called Cactus Juice. It works well at keeping bugs at bay, and smells good too. A lot better than deet or Off. Find it on Amazon prior to your trip. Definitely rent a car, either from the owners, or at the airport. Roatan has a lot to see, and the ability to just up and go is a bonus. The Sandy Bay area has a lot of nice restaurants and bars that take some looking to find.
This was my fourth trip to Roatan, and the first time I have stayed at the Purple Palace. The view is amazing, the pool was great. The house is set up for large groups, well stocked. You need a car to get around, but the driving is very easy. Internet was sporadic, but worked 75% of the time. We didn't get the air conditioning, but I think we should have. The reason it was not five stars is there is not enough shade on deck, an umbrella would be great, and there are a lot of small bugs all over everything, I have seen these bugs often in the tropics, they are harmless but annoying ( I'm not a bug phobe, just the opposite my favorite trip was to the Amazon jungle) but I have to admit the bugs wore me out. The house is well cared for and check in and check out very easy. The caretaker lives on property and we felt very safe, never locked up the house when we would go out. Cell phone is provided to make local calls. Plenty of bottled drinking water is provided at the home. The other reviews I feel are very accurate with description of home and distances to places.
Purple Palace is Exactly as Shown - Gorgeous!
This house is high up with a view that can't be beat. Swimming in the infinity pool and looking out to the green and blue Caribbean is just an awesome feeling. The location is a 5 minute drive to Coxen Hole and a 10 minute drive to West End Beach. The house is very large and roomy and the two main bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house for privacy. the loft is a great 3rd bedroom and very private. The house was clean and had such wonderful decor - so much of the beautiful mahogany carvings! Just lovely. The caretaker, Santos, is a lovely and helpful man who brought us fresh coconuts ready to drink! The house is very well stocked with everything you need - including a Margarita maker ;D. Grocery shopping is 5 minutes away but we chose to only eat breakfast at the house. Lunch and dinner were spent tasting the delicious local cuisine - the Hondurans can cook! Lobster Pot at the very end of West End Beach had the best food at really great prices. The meals come with a lime pie desert - homemade and semi frozen - delish! We were there in April and were so lucky - very few mosquitoes! What a blessing. Definitely rent the car that comes with the property - it's worth it to drive around the island and see all the wonderful areas off the beaten path plus you wouldn't want to be calling a cab every time you want to go out - it would end up costing you too much. If you want to go shopping the best days are definitely cruise ship days (when the cruise ships are in). When we were there that was Tuesday to Thursday. That way you can be sure ALL of the stores are open and you can visit Mahogany Bay for the cruise ship shopping area. It's probably a bit more expensive there but all the shops are in one spot. We enjoyed stopping at the small little shops all over the island. Some of them had the best items that weren't found in the larger shops in Coxen Hole or French Harbour or West End Beach. The people of Roatan are so happy and helpful and wonderful. This was a wonderful and relaxing vacation - I would recommend Roatan and Purple Palace to anyone!
High on a hill with never ending views. Everything we needed for an extended family get together. Glad we had a car to sightsee. We drove all over the island and had a wonderful time. Warm water and white sand beaches, yummy food and really nice people. Will come back again! Jimmie and Laurie
Beautiful Property in Roatan
We just returned after 2 weeks at this property. Like the previous reports state, this property is well stocked with everything you need to prepare your own meals - which we mostly did because it was just easier after happy hour in the pool lol. Purple Palace is very beautiful - what you see on line is exactly how it appears. We only used the master bedroom but you absolutely do need the air conditioning without a doubt. The power went out a couple of times (as is common in Central America) so bring a flashlight as there is no generator. There are lots of flashlights around the house as well although dim. Santos, the caretaker, truly made our stay even more enjoyable. He brought us beans and corn from his garden and even baked us a cake one day. Although my Spanish is limited, we were able to communicate quite well. Nice to see his smiling face all the time!
You will want to rent the car from Purple Palace as it is about a 10 min drive to restaurants at West End and to the grocery store - make sure you go to Oasis Roatan for at least 1 or 2 dinners - unbelievable food. Cruise boats come in 4 days a week (Mon-Thur). With a car we were able to head to the east end of the island away from the cruisers and see some beautiful landscape - and then see the rest of the west end of the island when the cruisers left. Take the time to walk into Coxen Hole (park at Eldons-grocery store) but best to do this on a cruise day as a lot of the shops aren't open the other days we experienced. The Straw Market - nothing really there - very overrated. Be sure to go to La Sirena at Camp Bay - 1 hour or so car ride to east end of the island - and about 30 mins of that down a bumpy dirt road - but soooo worth it - great food, great rum punch - great view - a little shack right on the ocean. Groceries at Eldons or Plaza Mar - fresh stuff mostly Mon-Friday - buy fresh off the side of the road as well. So important - bring lots of repellant - lots of noseeums at dusk and dawn - we slept with repellant on and the netting but both still got chewed up - nothing to do with Purple Palace, everything to do with the Caribbean side. This is a dive/snorkel destination. If you like to do that or lay on a beach, this is the place for you. If you want quiet, this is the place to be.
Blue Tang was a real delight!
We've been coming to Roatan for a number of years now, and decided to stay in Lawson Rock this year due to some friends being near by. I'm really happy we did. Blue Tang sits at the top of the development, overlooking the ocean. It's private and very secure. You will have to cross the main road to get to the ocean however. The owners seemed to have put more thought into details like good quality bedding, kitchen knifes and pots which seems to be a rarity on VRBO, but was much appreciated. Stella's management team was fabulous and on time as always. My only request is that blinds or shades be put in the second bedroom (tower bedroom). With that room being surrounded in windows, our guests woke up as soon as the sun rose. Thankfully I was in the master which did have window shades. The master also had a wonderful outdoor shower which was a nice daily treat.
Privacy and casual comfort define this hillside home with infinity edge pool overlooking turquoise waters.
