“A Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

The Mariposa Lodge was a lifesaver! We booked last minute over the New Years holiday when we arrived in Roatan and couldn't have wished for better accommodations. The rooms were clean and spacious. The deck and hammocks are perfect for lounging, and you're still right in the center of town. The staff was so helpful and flexible, and you honestly can't beat the price. We would 100% stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to the Bay Islands!

We stayed at Mariposa lodge for over a week and enjoyed ourselves so much. The room was simple but had a fridge which saved us as West End can be quite expensive. It was lovely to sit on the veranda in the evenings and read a book. The staff was the absolute best, they went out of their way to keep us informed, our rooms clean and managed to provide us with really good service overall.

I stayed at Mariposa Lodge for a week over Xmas 2013. The rooms are spacious and fully equipped and Mariposa is centrally located within walking distance to bars, restaurants, shopping, and the beach. The staff were extremely friendly, courteous, and helpful. Bonnie is wonderful. The lodge is close to everything but just far enough to avoid the noise from the bar music at night. A great find!

By the way, the diving is fantastic with dozens of scuba companies and dive sites to choose from.

I have stayed a few times at Maripose Lodge and it is really nice. The rooms are clean and well equipped and look really nice. I think the best value for money in West-End. Close to the beach, a guard etc. Just a really nice stay as well as a good location:)!

I stayed at the Mariposa Lodge for 2 weeks during September 2013. From the moment I emailed to asked for information about the lodge, diving, island info, etc. the owners were just really helpfull and super attentive. I was interested in the appartements because I was staying for a long period and I'm wasn't interested in the resort options. The appartement I stayed in was great, super simple and had everything I needed. The building is 1 min away from the main road and beach which is great because away from the noise and sand flies. Def going back when I return to Roatan!

I stayed at Mariposa Lodge for the third time this past June. I am the faculty leader of a group of students from Eastern Mennonite University and I love Mariposa Lodge. The owners are very accommodating and allowed me to make the reservation even before our numbers were firmly set. The staff is great and helped me make needed contacts for the group. I love the location in West End and the size of the rooms (I actually prefer the non-AC rooms because they are larger). I always make use of the kitchen for many meals during the week. Since we had a larger group we also made use of Mariposa Pequeña which was perfect. This has to be the best place for the price in West End.
