Wonderful 12 day stay at Hobbies!
The room was clean, and right on the beach. The reef right in front is spectacular for snorkeling. I completed my open water diving at Blue water divers, which is a short walk. We fell in love with a local dog that hangs out at Hobbies, Bingemena... Sue made sure we had everything we needed. Ronald picked us up from the airport... We met some really great people while staying there. It’s a cozy comfortable place. The cabs only cost L100 ($4) to the West End.
We just spent an amazing week here! Thank you Sue for everything including the champagne and orange juice! I can't say enough about Ronald and his assistance with everything. We love your quant place and it had everything we needed! Enjoyed grilling with Mike and Rose Marie. Shrimp kabobs, lobster tails, steaks! Nom-nom. 🤣�
Clean,comfortable, convenient to West End, very quiet and relaxing
We enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks to John, Sue, and Ronald. The snorkel trip was awesome. Hope to see you all again.
Sue and John as owners are very hospitable.
John and Sue, the owners, are very hospitable. The accommodations are simple, clean, quiet and certainly adequate. They have a clean private beach, pier and deck area. Good reef access and great free diving off a kayak or by direct swim. The reef area offers good variety of fish and coral compared to more populated areas. John and Ronald are very good fishermen with good boats.
Great little spot
John and Sue, the owners, are very kind and did anything we requested. They were very helpful in giving directions and pointing out places of interest. They have a little hotel, in that there are three units and a communal patio, which is great if you're into convivial times. The rooms are very clean and their spot of beach is also raked and kept pristine. It's near Sandy Bay so not close to the busier West Bay. If you don't require your own private patio, you will love this spot. The rooms are around $100 a night, and it's very quiet and peaceful there. Plus, they all have air conditioners!
Roatan is extremely "buggy," and even though John and Sue had a variety of bug sprays nothing really worked so he prepared for bites. Also, the reef is quite a ways out from shore. They give guests one trip out in a boat, which is a nice amenity. And clean sheets whenever you want them! It was lovely.
Excellent quiet place to enjoy the beach and snorkling!
We stayed here a week and it was our first time to Roatan. John made it as easy as possible to book the room, picked us up at the airport and dropped us off again. He even ran us to the local grocery store if we needed anything.
We snorkled right off the dock and saw a variety of fish including eels, blue tangs, starfish and too many types of reef fish to count.
The room was excellent, was right on the beach, had great air conditioning and a kitchen to cook our own meals. There is a common use deck with fans that is a great place to sit and relax.
John and Sue were very nice and accommodating.
We will definitely book with them again when we come back to Roatan.
The room and location was ideal, especially if you want a quiet place where you'll see more fish than people.
Hello Dana, Thank you for a great review. We do have a unique area and the snorkeling is some of the best in front. No boat need to reach the reef This is what we try and do, make your vacation a memorable one!!
