  • Best vacation ever

    "Thank you Gilles for letting us use you condo. Gilles always answered my question within a few minutes. The condo location was perfect, second floor far enough away from the pool that would at times be kinda crazy. If you are looking to stay at IB find out where the condo is before you book half the buildings have 4 floors I saw big families on top and that's to many stairs for me. This was my first time to use vrbo and it was great check in was easy. It was nice to have a fridge with ice and water you can drink. We thought we would do more cooking but we are divers and after doing 3 dives a day I didn't feel like to cook dinners everyday. We made our breakfasts and lunches and ate out half the time for dinner. Plenty of places walking distances to eat. The air conditioner work great maybe to good when we left in the morning to go diving we always turned it way down and it only took a few minutes to cool down. We stayed 11 nights and think the biggest mistake we made was we left to soon. Next time it's going to be at least 2 weeks.. Once again thanks."

  • The Caribbean as it should be !!!

    "Wilmont Bay Retreat is the perfect place to stay on the perfect Caribbean Island to visit (Guanaja). This is the kind of place to go if you love nature, a pristine environment, and a lot of outdoor activities to participate in. It is not a place where you will be one of thousands of tourists trying to "hit all of the highlights" of a beach destination in a few short hours (cruise ports come to mind). If shopping malls and casinos are your preference, you better go elsewhere. Guanaja may be a little more difficult to get to than a lot of other Caribbean destinations, but that is probably what has enabled it to remain an unspoiled and off the beaten path kind of a destination. The extra effort is definitely worth it. Guanaja (and Wilmont Bay Retreat) are true tropical gems, and some of the few remaining ones in the Caribbean today. Activities that I participate in are Diving, Snorkeling, Kayaking, and Hiking, all of which are top-notch, with no crowds to deal with. You host (Cindy) does an excellent job acquiring your groceries before you arrive, which allows you more time for engaging in all of the activities that are awaiting you. One of my favorite times at Wilmont Bay Retreat is about 8pm - 10pm when it gets dark and the stars shine brightly overhead (and the waves roll onto shore). An hour or two of this relaxes the soul and prepares you for a great night's sleep on the extremely comfortable beds in the cottages. We have stayed at Wilmont Bay Retreat twice over the last few months and plan on going back every year, as often as we can. You will feel the same way once you have visited. I have stayed in many places on many islands and this is one of my favorites !!!"

  • 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!"

  • Nice Stay

    "Our stay at Villa delfin was a great experience. We stayed there for a week, in the Studio unit. There is a few other units on the property including the owners. Carleen and her husband were very friendly and even gave us a lift into town one day. As far as the property goes, it is quite nice and very well maintained and most of all very safe! The Studio apartment is great for a couple. It had all the necessary amenities we needed, and the large refrigerator was great for storing our drinks and food. There is also plenty of parking if you decide to rent a car or scooter which we did as we wanted to explore the island. The Studio sits on the 2nd floor, so you get a nice strong breeze in the evening which was nice. The apartments sits up in the jungle away from the beach. Although you can take a short walk down to the nearest beach area to catch a water taxi, but walking back up the pretty steep hill is not much fun. There are no stores or restaurants nearby, so you have to walk down and catch a water taxi or call one from your unit. Although I think there was a restaurant /resort down by the beach area but we did not try it. So if you prefer to be away from everything and everyone then this complex will be great for you. But if you like the convenience of all the options at West Bay or West end like we did, then you might want to stay closer to the hustle and bustle. We would definitely recommend this rental property to our friends and family. Thank you for your hospitality, Carleen! :D"
