"My husband, myself, and our two girls, ages 3 and 6, had a wonderful stay at Villa Tranquila in Roatan. I will start off by saying how beautiful Roatan is. The people are extremely friendly and the water is truly unbelievable. We have been to many islands and the water in Roatan is truly spectacular. Villa Tranquila is located in West End, a cute little town full of great restaurants and shops. Everything is within walking distance from the Villa. The town has a very local feel to it and is not touristy at all, which we loved. The beaches in West End are good, but if you want to see the clearest water you can imagine, you have to go to West Bay, which is only about 5 minutes away on a water taxi. Definitely worth the trip. Since we had two small kids with us, it was definitely easier to just stay in West End. We found an amazing beach just steps from the Villa. It is located at the Buccuneer restaurant. They clean the beach each morning, they provide chairs and umbrellas, and even nice large beds, and all you have to do is order a drink once in a while. We ordered the most delicious smoothies for the girls for $2 each. Also ordered them lunch for $5. Most of the time, we had the beach all to ourselves. Water is very clear, warm, and shallow. There is also a dock, which is fun. Literally the perfect place. When we were done with the beach, we would walk back to the Villa and take a dip in the huge pool located right outside the condo. Most of the time, we were the only ones at the pool as well. More about the condo: the Villa comes with everything you can possibly need. The kitchen is fully stocked - pots, pans, coffee maker, tea kettle, all dishes, all utensils, can opener, cheese grater, etc. Basically anything you would have at home, is there. Lots of paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, hand soap, etc. You do not need to buy anything else, just food. We stopped at a grocery store on the way from the airport and bought food. We used the kitchen every morning to make breakfast. Very convenient. In addition, there was a fruit/veggie truck that came right by the Villa with fresh fruit and veggies. The watermelon, bananas, apples, green peppers, were all so delicious and fragrant. We were also able to buy some fresh caught red snapper from some locals for very cheap and grilled the fish on the grill at the condo. I would recommend this condo to anyone who enjoys having the conveniences of home and who loves having a pool and beach to themselves."
