  • Loved Roatan

    "I agree with al the reviews that stated pictures didn't do it justice. There was 10 of us traveling together so we rented 3 units in the Sunset Villas.Location was great. Short walk to diving,( dove with Roatan Divers they were GREAT)eating and dancing. The 67 steps were a bit much to do several times a day (wouldn't recommend to anyone much older than us) was great to have two King beds . My only two complaints #1.the bedroom with the bamboo bed the bed was a little hard I had a rough time sleeping the beds in the other units had memory foam witch made them better. #2. The bottled water unit was not cooled so had to always remember to keep water chilling in the fridge, and was setting on A very small corner of the counter was hard to replace jug with out having an upset. All in all this was a Great Unit an we Loved Roatan and plan on returning!!"

  • 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"

  • 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 is the best house, you can stop looking now.

    "A little background on the group that went. We were in our late 20's and 30's, rented the main house and boathouse for a month so we had a lot of time to spend on the property. 5 of us were there for the month, and at times there were up to 10 of us. Even with 10 there, everyone had enough space to not feel crowded. Also Paul is a great home-owner and is always an email away. From the moment you get off the plane, Franklin is there to greet you and your mind forgets about whatever it was thinking about and tunes into island time. The trip to the house is filled with a nice tour given by Franklin himself telling you all about Roatan and answering your questions before you even think to answer them. Upon arriving to the house, we were blown away not only by the beautiful bay, which is right at your feet, but the build quality of the house is the best i've ever seen on an island, anywhere! The boat house was also amazing seeing how it was built right on stilts above the bay. The kayaks, which we used almost everyday, were a lot of fun and you are able to kayak about 100 yards and tie them up to a post so you can snorkel your own private reef. We were always the only ones snorkeling at any given time. Its so quiet and peaceful. So beyond the immaculate house, and amazing water you, Franklin was the best part of the whole trip. He made you feel comfortable and assured you that anything you need he can do. His knowledge of the house, the island, and the people who live there is second to none. Everywhere we went he knew people! He really takes the trip and makes it special. He was there for everything we needed and we left with a new friend who might be the biggest reason for coming back. Overall, Sea-Grove Retreat lived up to and beyond expectations. Do yourself a favor, and book yourself a stay here."
