  • 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."

  • Location..Location...Location

    "As the title emphasizes, Hobbies is situated at one of the best possible locations on Roatan. Sandy Bay has a beautiful white sand beach fringed by Coconut palms, and mangroves. Extremely important and biodiverse eel grass extends from the beach out to the reef. Snorkeling is superb! Sunsets are too. The grocery stores, shops and airport are about 10 to 15 minutes away. Getting to and from Half Moon Bay and West Beach is very easy and very cheap. And course the icing on the cake are the wonderful hosts John & Sue; and their right hand man, Ronald – okkiee dokiee John picks you up and drops you off at the airport and takes you to the grocery store frequently. If he's busy, taxis are readily available to take you anywhere. John and Sue provide a wealth of information about the island and the local way of life. Their hospitality is not confined to the van or the living quarters above. This is the place to relax, kick back, drink a cold one and tell stories. Comfortable, friendly and it felt familiar and safe. Our unit was well furnished. We did not lack for a thing. We cooked what we caught on our fishing trip with John and Ronald on the grill onsite. Made our evening cocktails and enjoyed the company of the other guests. Ronald took us on a unforgettable snorkel adventure. We spent our last day touring the island with John. In the end we knew we had chosen the best location on Roatan for our long awaited vacation."

  • An Experience That Will Stay With You Forever

    "I had such a memorable time at the Sunset House; it was such an enjoyable experience. The Sunset House is in a prime location between the West End and the West Bay, making access to fun activities a breeze. The house has so many fun and thoughtful amenities that it truly reflects the manager's mindfulness in making certain that guests are beyond satisfied. Subtleties that may go unnoticed, like having staff--who I must mention are kind, thoughtful, and very helpful--constantly rake/turn over sand and spraying plants to keep unwanted pests away made our time at the home extremely comfortable. Other things, such as paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, ping pong table, hammocks (ohh how I loved the hammocks and their location on the property), a Bluetooth speaker to blast music while swimming at the dock, night lights under the dock to see beautiful sea life... the list goes on! Wake up, grab some breakfast, then a kayak with some snorkeling gear, paddle out about 100 yards (no joke!), and snorkel the coral reef and its lovely creatures that will literally have you in a state of awe--it's like Finding Nemo all over again! If that's too far, there are lively creatures to see right off the dock--sting rays, small jellyfish, numerous kinds of exotic fish. I decided to go for my PADI certification on the island where one of the most beautiful scuba locations I went to was right in front of the Sunset House!! Sea turtles, sting rays, magnificent coral, and uncountable variety of fish! Want some fresh lion fish tacos? Walk on the dock and get water taxi that will take you to the West End. Or head out to the West Bay to have some Monkey Lalas (a unique island drink that's all over the island) with my all time favorite fresh sea bass fish and chips (I'd get the fish and fish it's so damn good). All in all, the manager's/owner's effort that goes into this place is palpable and made my experience priceless--thank you!"

  • Magnificent property, beautiful setting and great staff.

    "Our vacation was perfect. We were able to dive, snorkel and fish while enjoying the beautiful house. Spent a lot of time in pool. Sleeping was uncomfortable at times because there is no AC but lots of fans are provided which made it better. Definitely rent a car and explore the island, it's beautiful. Kevin, Clair and Desiree were the perfect hosts and could answer all questions and provide any assistance needed (including getting a key after locking ourselves out!). Thank you for a lovely experience."
