Recent Roatan reviews

  • Loved this place. LOVED.

    "Let me start by stating that we use VRBO every time we travel. We stay in condos or homes, and I usually trust the reviews of others to guide me to the right property. After looking at the pictures, we chose this condo for a variety of reasons. I give this the highest of ratings for many reasons listed below. 1. Location. The resort is on the nicest beach in all of Roatan. It is on the far end of the beach, so not in the middle of loud bars. The property has a restaurant (buffet) and palapa bar (food and drinks). Literally the prettiest resort on the island. We almost booked Grand Roatan, and after visiting, I am SO glad we chose IB. Just an overall better set up. 2. Resort itself. This place is beautiful. The pool area, gardens, beach, etc are all spectacular. All maintained beautifully. Resort employees greet you and make you feel very welcome. 3. The rooms. This unit is a one bedroom, one bathroom unit. Not to offend the owners, but their pictures simply do not do justice to their condo!!! We noted that all one bedrooms at IB are seemingly identical (same furniture, etc.). The condo was SO MUCH NICER than the pictures led us to believe! It is simply beautiful. We cooked a few breakfasts there, and the pans/dishes/etc were very adequate. The purified water (and ICE MAKER!) was such a bonus as well. 4. The owners. Owners were so easy to book with, and accommodated us when we had a slight schedule change. They gave us all information to check in timely. Such an amazing couple to deal with. Not sure how the "front desk pool" usually does with reservations, but these guys are top notch! 5. Location of room. This may be a drawback for some, but the condo is NOT right in front of the pool. It is a two minute (at most) walk through stunning gardens to get to the pool/ocean. WE LOVED THIS as it meant quiet! We could not hear the bar, the restaurant, etc. For some people, this is a problem. For us it was GREAT. 6. Second floor condo. LOVED this is on the second floor. No worries about leaving things on our balcony. Balcony roomy and had ample lighting. 7. Beach. Again, this is on the most beautiful stretch of beach. Chairs were so comfy at both beach and pool. 8. Security. Cannot say enough good about the professional security here. AMAZINGLY SAFE. CONS: None. Simply none. Have no worries if you are considering this condo. It is a fantastic place to enjoy, relax, rejuvenate and refresh. FIVE STARS!"

  • 5 Stars for location, 3 stars for the unit itself

    "Absolutely love the location of this condo. Stayed in one of the other units two years ago but this is my second time at Villa Ocean Reef. The unit is spacious and comfortable. It is getting a little tired inside but who really hangs out inside on such a beautiful island? The drinking water and towels are plentiful and kitchen is pretty well stocked. Couches are comfortable if you needs to take a short siesta. Love Las Rocas right next door and being able to walk to the "busy" end of the beach then being able to return to the privacy of the of your own beach. West End is about a 40 minute walk and that is a neat little town as well. Snorkeling can be done straight out from the unit or across from Infinity Bay. Just watch for boats when crossing to the reef from the condo. My complaints on this condo are minor but are the same complaints I had four years ago. First, the unit smells VERY musty and I wouldn't be surprised if there is some unseen mold going on in there. Second, the bushes are too high and you can not see the ocean without sitting on top of a very uncomfortable fixed structure wooden table (probably my biggest complaint). Third, the small bathroom can be very dark and a clear shower curtain would be helpful to let the light in. Not to mention, it is a challenge to get your entire body under the shower. Walt Johnson has his name written on everything in that unit so i am assuming he is the owner. Hopefully, he reads the reviews. Bottom line: I would definitely stay here again but might check out one of the other units because of the smell and the view."

  • Tout simplement exceptionnel (Simply Exceptional!)

    "With our 4 children, we came from France to visit Roatan. La Diosa was THE place to stay and we had a marvelous time there : the house and the garden are really wonderful, well equiped, with everything you might dream. The beach is near, and with the kayacks, you're able to snorkel on the beautiful reef in a few moments. Humming birds can be seen while you're taking your shower in the open air. The view is breathtaking. Beeing located on the east part of Roatan is really an advantage : this part of the island is more authentic, but in less than an hour you can access, if you want, the more touristical places in the island. Not far from the house, beautiful beaches, wonderful dives with "subway water sport" that pick you up right from the dock at La Diosa. Punta Gorda with its Garifuna joyful feats and dances is very near... And what made our stay really remarkable was the presence of Jorge. He is perfect in his role as caretaker : helpul, efficient, hardworker, always available but never intrusive. And we found he goes far beyond his duty, in the good sense : friendly, giving good advices, taking care of our security in every aspect, always ready to talk about Honduras and Roatan, showing our kids how to cook a traditional recipe. After a few days, though he was always discrete, we had the impression of being at home with a friend nearby. Jorge is really precious and added greatly to the quality of our stay in La Diosa… The best summary comes from our kids "when do we come back ?". And though it's very far from France, no doubt we also dream of it! PS : if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, don't hesitate to go far east, on the dirt road, to "La Sirena" restaurant : the view and the beach are amazing, and you've got the feeling of being at the edge of the world. Their fishes are delicious."

  • Perfect location, great condo!

    "If you are staying in West Bay, there isn't a more perfect location. This was our first time to Roatan and I can't imagine staying anywhere other than West Bay. To be able to swim out to the reef at any time is priceless. The condo was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. The property itself is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures, the pool is huge and clean and the pool bar is perfect for grabbing a drink to cool off. Finally, renting with the Hedges was as easy as the process could possibly be and they provided a nice info packet with tips and suggestions. I would definitely recommend renting with them if you are looking in West Bay."
