I stayed here for a week, following a week of a rather horrible experience at Casa del Sol nearby. First of all, Posada Arco Iris has (at least) two blocks. One is at the front, facing the sea, and other at the back with no seaviews. Make sure you know which one you are booking. I had a room in... More

The room was certainly luxurious but with in a surprisingly mid price (Although Roatan is not cheap). Huge, bright, with wooden floors and very very clean. But... in the cleanest place of our trip, cockroaches visited the bathroom a couple of times. This is a problem of the island as we were said.

We spent a week at Posada Arco Iris. The room was spacious, clean, and so comfortable. This is truly a tropical gem in plain view, but tucked away in a jungle setting. It rained a bit and there were so many mango/ tropical trees surrounding our room, we weren't able to see the rain, but could only hear the rain... More

We stayed at Posada Arco Iris for about a week. It was wonderful and the staff was really nice! The rooms were clean and we received new towels daily. The hotel is right across from the beach. It has nice beach chairs also. The location was great and the hotel rate can't be beat. It is located in West End... More

This hotel is in the perfect location. It is beach front, very near Sundowner's, with a delicious restaurant and very helpful and friendly staff. Very laid back. I love the free kayaks. Been there twice now, plan many return visits. Agree with WednesdayandGreg's review: basic but clean. If you are hoping for a resort feel, you will not like this... More

Beach front property near the Sundowner Bar and Grill. I've stayed here a couple of times. You can get rooms with A/C or just fans. Rooms are clean and well maintained. They do have wifi but if you're in the back, it's up and down throughout the day although outages tend to be short lived (minutes). They have propane stoves... More

An amazing little hotel just off the main drag in West End, Posada Arco Iris is a tropical oasis. You get a private beach, with lounge chairs on the sand and a coral reef just offshore. They offer free kayaks and cheap snorkeling equipment if you want to be active, and a restaurant and bar if you don't! The rooms... More

We just returned from a 10-night stay. We had a great time! The beach in front of the hotel is wonderful! The rooms are basic but they are clean and quiet. The mattresses are a bit old and the pillows are flat and/or lumpy but what do you expect for $50/night?

This place is in a wonderful location, and the large inner garden with its huge tropical trees and vines proves an oasis of shade and quiet when you need a break from the sun. It is on the 'main drag' so is very close to all the diving places, shops and eateries, yet not too close to the louder night... More

Just got back after staying 10 nights here and we were quite pleasantly surprised with the quality and especially the cleanliness of the place. We stayed in room 18 on the second floor which has partial views of the sea and benefits from a sea breeze although we did pay extra for the air con which I would recommend as... More
