“Great dive shop, nice hotel room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Hotel room was very nice for $50 with view to the ocean. However, the beaches around the area are bad, you have to go to West Bay for the beach. We spent most of our time diving so it was fine. The dive shop was very professional and nice. Diving in Honduras was so cheap and the reef was very beautiful!!! Definitely ask them to take you out to dive in West Bay (10-15 min boat ride). I will definitely come back for more diving.
5 stars for the hotel and dive shop.
3 for the location on the island and the restaurant was a little expensive.

We recently returned from a 2 week dive vacation in Roatan. We stayed at the Splash Inn. The hotel provided a great location, rooms, restaurant, and dive operation. The hotel is in the center of town but set back so it's quiet. Everything in town is within walking distance, on a newly paved road. The room was nice, clean, and well maintained. We ate breakfast there everyday and also had lunch and dinner there a few times and thoroughly enjoyed it. The dive operation was great. Serena runs a great shop and couldn't have been more accomodating and hospitable. Justin and Estaban are great divemasters. They are very knowledgable, safety conscious, and easy going. It was great diving. The Splash Inn staff were all very gracious, courteous, and helpful. It's good when the hotel, dive ops, and dock are all located in one location without being an out of the way resort. We definitely plan to return.

My dive buddy and I just got back from a week in Roatan drinking and diving (but not in that order). The Splash Inn ran a nice dive operation that was safe, efficient, and catered to the desires of the divers present. Justin was a great divemaster, safety-conscious, but easy-going and very knowledgeable. Serena ran a very pleasant and accomodating dive center.
You get a lot of diving for the money, and it's great to have the dive shop, boat dock, and restaurant just steps away from your hotel room. The room was clean and far enough away from the noisy bars to be quiet at night, yet close enough to the action for a short walk to great bars and restaurants. We got the half-board package that allowed us to eat breakfast and lunch at the hotel, and gave us the chance to sample several types of restaurants for dinner. Most were very good and yet affordable.

If you're into scuba then the Splash Inn in the West End in Roatan is the place to go . West Beach is the big resort type hotels, which if you want that sort of thing then best go there. (you'll pay MUCH more and travel further for the best diving.) If you're mainly looking for scuba or snorkelling then this is the best location. The boat leaves right across the road, the dive shop is literally steps from the front of the hotel.(Great group of instructors at the Splash Inn dive shop). Owned by resident Italian ex-pats, it is clean, relaxed but efficient. The Italian restaurant serves great pizza! The hotel is in the heart of the west end, with lots of bars and restaurant choices. The rooms are air coned and very clean, well furnished with all the basics you will need and nothing you don't. The staff were friendly and always willing to help in any way they can. Snorkelling is literally a short walk away - 20' from the sandy beach behind the church, you'll find 50+ species of tropical fish in very shallow water.

My wife joked with the owner that she dreamed of drinking a Pina Colada from a cocoanut and the next day he made it happen!

Great service, laid back, clean and very well priced.

We run motorcycle tours throughout Guatemala and the rest of Central America. This was our first time back to Roatan in a few years and we're glad to find a great hotel/dive shop that we can use with our clients. The staff was helpful, very clean rooms, and the diving operation was very nice. Nothing bad to say, will definitely come back in the future.

booked on line , great price, rooms very clean, staff very friendly.....ESP. Dive shop...great and very helpful people...restaurant so,so price a little high for what you get.....But only complaints..I was told their taxi would be at airport to pick us up..wasted 15 minutes looking for him,no show... got our own same price no big deal...However the one thing that was a concern...advertize in room safes, this we were told before booking had been ended, but the hotel offered to keep anything of value in there safe...as the deal we worked out was all cash, so we had a fairly large amount of cash on hand, when we requested It be placed in their safe we were told no longer offered this service, so we had a ton of cash in our room the whole week..this was a concern, but everything turned out o.k...would recommend splash inn...

I communicated with Adriana for several months before making final reservations. All of our room and diving reservations were exactly as promised. From the minute we walked onto the property we were greeted with smiles and friendly welcomes. You walk through the open air restaurant to the front desk. Check in was quick as everything was in order and we were taken to our room. We were upstairs facing the water and had a very nice view. The room was very clean throughout our stay and room service was excellent. Straight across the street is a long dock with a large seating area and loungers for sunbathing. We used them everyday and could simply enter the ocean and enjoy the 89 degree water. The restaurant serves great food and the wait staff is first class. Cash, Benny and Howard and all the rest of the crew were top notch. Always a smile and greeting, they introduced themselves so we were on a first name basis from the start. We really enjoyed the food and the outdoor grill chef prepared really tasty selections. The diving was also world class and the entire dive staff treated my wife and I like family. The crew briefed us on our upcoming dives and then provided us with professional guidance. We are very impressed with the well rounded dive staff from all around the globe. The boat captains were also great and took extra time to try to help us see whale sharks, which we did by the way. The dive locations were varied and extremely beautiful. My wife did the night dive to see the "string of pearls" and was really impressed. We both rate this resort and the diving at the top of our list and definetely are planning a return visit.

Room Tip: We got lucky and had a view of the ocean but in reality probably any room would be fine as we spent...
