Recent Roatan reviews

  • Excellent vacation experience

    "The property in general and units specifically were exactly what they were portrayed to be (very nice) - our 6 family members had a great vacation experience. The unit owners were very helpful in making suggestions for all of our touring, dining, shopping and excursion needs - invaluable as we had never been to this area. The property staff were universally pleasant, helpful and accommodating. The property is ideally located for snorkeling, scuba and fishing charters. We would love to return and highly recommend to others."

  • 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."

  • Perfect House for a group

    "This house was absolutely perfect. There were 7 adults in our group and felt that there was ample room in the house. There are 2 other homes on the property as well. We rarely saw the guests in either home. It felt very secluded. All bedrooms have air conditioning and mosquito nets on the beds. We opted to leave all the doors and windows open so we could feel the breezes. It was so pleasant. They provide bug spray and we used it to prevent bug bites. Some of us did get bites but they were not reapplying the spray. The house has many seating areas for you to socialize or lounge and several hammocks as well. The pool temperature was perfect and overlooks the ocean. Pool rafts too! We felt extremely safe with the gated house and guards. We left the house wide open all day and night. We did lock our bedrooms if we left for long periods of time. The staff are amazing and will assist you as little or as much as needed. Rosa and Pearl will cook for you anytime you like. We had the Shrimp Marsala and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. They have a pizza oven and one night all guests gathered for dinner. It was nice to get to meet new people. We had the pleasure of meeting Bruce and Nicky (the owners). They are very kind and fun couple!The wifi is free and works great! We got to use a 7 passenger van for the week and felt completely comfortable driving to various destinations. Fausto will help with any house needs such as taking garbage or placing the kayaks in the water. There are many snorkel gear sets and over 5 kayaks. You can walk down to the pier and Fausto will take care of the supplies.We took a boat trip and Hanford was our Captain. He was friendly and informative. He took us to Jade beach for snorkeling and to La Serina for lunch. One day he dropped the woman off at Paya Beach Resort while the men went fishing. Paya Beach Resort is for Naturists so you need to be screened before you can pay for a day pass $5. Even though we are not Naturists, we got the green light and we were able to enjoy the beautiful property for a few hours. We spent an afternoon at Havana beach which had no tourists, only locals. It was breathtaking. We had our driver take us to West Bay Beach for an afternoon. We soaked in the sun and had some lunch at a local restaurant with live music. We then hopped in a $3 water taxi to West End for dinner. A perfect property for a perfect vacation! Thanks Phil for everything!!"

  • This place was perfect for us.

    "It is on what almost seems like a private beach and has a great view of the water and is clean, shady, comfortable and a short walk to resorts, restaurants and access to activities without the hassle of being on a crowded beach or a large resort. The condo is one of six (?) units but we never heard our neighbors. It is next to Gumbalimba Park (a nature preserve) and separated from West Bay by the laid back Las Rocas dive resort. The grass in the water right in front of the condo does not invite swimming but there's a "hole" in front of Los Rocas a few feet away and plenty more beach and swimming at West Bay. You can also take advantage of the large pools at the nearby resorts by simply buying a drink or a meal there. The unit we rented (3b) might not be considered luxurious by American standards, but it was very comfortable and had everything we needed (small pool, kitchen utensils, washer/dryer, TV with Satellite, towels, etc.) and covered parking. We have been to Roatan countless times and have stayed in high-end resorts but we highly recommend this condo to anyone who prefers the beach at a good price and without the crowd."
