Best bar in Roatan!

Had the best night of my Roatan trip at Sundowners! Great ambiance, right on the beach, great drink prices. Made friends with a lot of the locals as well as bartenders. They also hosted live music. Best burger on the island!

On the beach and perfectly positioned for Caribbean sunsets, this local hangout and seemingly social pivot point is the first stop of the evening for many in West End. Great place to hang, kick back, and reminisce about back home.

Burgers are about the best thing you'll order here unless you get a monkey la-la drink (that's worth the limperas you'll spend). The wraps are ok, not the best but certainly safe to say that they're not then worst either. Their French fries are pretty awesome, I'll give them that. The reason to go here is for the location and... More

Spent quite a bit of time at the bar when our ship was at anchor. Aaron and his wife treated us like family and was very helpful for info on local tours etc. One of our crew lost her wallet and the owner went out of her way to put the word out, luckily it was quickly recovered. It was... More

Right next door to Sun Divers for refreshment after diving with the best. Good tasting food is also available along with their very cold beer.

You can get the same, if not better, food, drinks, and views elsewhere. I ordered nachos and waited over an hour for them. The service is very slow and the staff doesn't seem to mind if you come back. And the nachos were not good.. No thanks, won't go back. They also do not take plastic.

Loaferoatan, Owner at Sundowners, responded to this review

Hello: Sorry for your horrible experience at Sundowner's. I'll try and find out what happened if you tell me what day you were there so I can see who was working. I do know that on a rare occasion an order may get forgotten because the kitchen is detached from the bar and the bartender may not remember to go... More

Best bar on Roatan and possibly best "Beach Bar" in the Caribbean. I had the opportunity to meet the owner, Aaron "Loafer" Etches, and he is a class act. His bartenders are great, the drinks are great and the atmosphere is straight out of a Jimmy Buffet song. The bar faces west over the water so get there at sunset... More

Super cute place to grab a drink before dinner, some evenings I noticed they even have a live band or guitarist! Ask for the wifi password and you've got yourself a great place to grab your email while you have a nice drink after your day of diving. Meet up with friends before heading out to your favourite restaurant of... More

Five years ago, Sundowners was the beach bar to be at in West End and it still is. During Happy Hour, 5 - 7, you can't move, but everyone seems happy none-the-less. The other night I saw the bartender pour a rum and coke. The rum got a three second pour while the coke was just a splash - I... More

Although anywhere in the west end has a great sunset, this bar makes it extra special....I guess because it's right on the beach. Cold Salva Vida and excellent burgers too! Big shout out to Verena the bartender. She was great (and fun to dive with too!)
