    "We recently enjoyed a wonderful week at Seagrove Retreat. So many activities from kayaking (singles/doubles with paddles provided) , great snorkeling nearby (gear provided), paddle boards, swimming in the pool or off the dock. Which is always refreshing. Junior, Franklin and/or Tommy (care takers, who are the best!) can arrange most anything you need. From shuttle to and from the airport, to stopping by a large grocery store, and boat taxis. Call Marvin for a boat trip down the coast line (highly recommend this) , or lunch at Hole In The Wall for lunch or other places. Spend your happy hour fishing from the deck of the casita or dock. Mostly small fish so for us catch and release, but much fun. Early in the morning you will see the school bus boat pick up children and a fisherman came by the dock to sell us lobster. Seagrove Retreat is peaceful and quiet, always a breeze so sitting on any of the decks provides a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view. The houses are tastefully decorated and furnished with all your needs. All was well maintained and clean. Make sure you stock up at the grocery store as Seagrove Retreat is in a beautiful secluded area, with a rocky road and steep hill to get in and out. There are a fair amount of stairs on the property, we just viewed it as daily exercise. The owners Paul and Julie are delightful and will answer all your questions. Looking forward to our next trip to Roatan and would definitely stay here again!"

  • Our favorite Caribbean experience

    "We had a most enjoyable 10 day stay at Slumberland this March. We were in the east villa which had a great view with large windows and a deck out front. We were able to observe sea life right from our deck and enjoyed the iguanas and crabs in the area below us. Some highlights of the trip were walking back from town on the sandy road in the moonlight, taking the water taxi to Neptunes and spending the day there snorkeling and relaxing on their beach, snorkeling right from our villa, and exploring Utila town. The villa was spacious, clean and comfortable. There was some music that drifted down from Chepes beach at night, but the air conditioner helped mask it. Andy, the manager was very friendly and helpful. When a storm blew up and at end of our trip and the ferry to Roatan was cancelled, he arranged a flight for us at short notice and also found an unavailable phone number that we needed for our hotel in Roatan. We could not have done those things without his help. We hope to visit Utila again and stay at Slumberland."

  • 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."

  • Our stay at Sunni's Cove

    "My husband and I had a great time at Sunni's Cove! The cabins are lovely and cozy... it was a good thing, because when we were there it was stormy and rainy every day (at the end of the rainy season). We took walks along the beach and found many amazing shells and coral pieces; we kayaked across the channel to Suc Suc and Jewel Cays, where we had a great lunch and were able to stock up on groceries. We were happy to have a solid internet connection so we could watch some movies in the rainy evenings, and the shower was awesome. We also loved watching the sunsets and the changes in the ocean and the skies. Once you get there, you won't want to leave, it is so peaceful... The caretaker, Anke, went over and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy!"
