“delicious, beautiful, relaxing and peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

We traveled with 2 young boys to Honduras and during our 10 days trip we spent 4 days at the Lily Pond House. The place looks beautiful, relaxing and peaceful, the location is great, very quiet and at the same time couple of min walk to the beach and snorkeling spot and to the center of West End, where you can take the boat taxi for $3 to get to West Bay (amazing beaches, white send, clear water, great for kids). Breakfast made by Luis every morning was delicious and he served us with all his heart, he made pancakes for the boys and omelets for us with a big ball of yummy fruits – it was just a great way to start the day, Luis really spoiled us. Luis made delicious food for dinner and the atmosphere was great, we also has a special request for a dish that was not in the menu for the boys and he prepared it with lots of love. Zak and Luis was also great when we told them we want to go Canopy, they arranged with a canopy Gumbalimba Company to come and pick us up. And when we left they also arrange a taxi to pick us up very early morning 5:45am and take us to the ferry. We were surprised that Luis actually was waiting for us that early in the morning with a pack of cookies and orange juices for the boys to take with them on the way.
The only thing to be aware of is that there is no cleaning service or towels exchange daily, so we actually used the same towels during our 4 days stay. Other than that, it was a great experience! Thank you Zak and Luis.

The restaurant we wanted to eat out was closed, so we decided to keep walking down the road and ran into this delightful find. The menu was very small, but the place had ambiance, and we were famished so we stayed. And so glad we did! The food was absolutely wonderful! Extremely tasty, wonderful portion sizes, and they accommodated our vegetarian friend quite nicely. If you come to Roatan, you really need to eat here.

After our dinner we climbed the circular staircase to the rooftop and had an amazing view of a starlit sky. We got to peek into some of the B&B rooms, and WOW! If you want a place for romance, this is your choice!

If you think the pictures are amazing... Just being there was even more fabulous... The time we spent there was nowhere compare to anything at Roatan. Just cozying myself with my significant other was so unbelievable. The room that we had was nicely decorated with a touch of Caribbean style, having said that even the Restaurant has a great variety of dishes to choose from and an excellent customer service. The owners Zak and Luis made us feel as if we were right at home while we were there for our Vacation stay. For all those travelers needing to find a place where you can feel at home while vacationing my advice is to book your stay at the Lily Pond House at West End Roatan, a great place to dine and relax with a beautiful well decorated room in the middle of Paradise.

Room Tip: It took us a while to find out which one we wanted they were all so beautiful and relaxing.

Tucked away off the bumpy road is a quaint, quiet, and complete vacationing experience. The rooms are decorated with calming flare and the food is mouth watering and spiced to perfection. Zak and Luis provided us not only with room and food, but their connections to the attractions were very helpful.

We went to Lilly Pond House for dinner at the reccomendation of several new friends we had made in West End. We were met and greeted by Zak and seated at a table under the stars. I had an amazing grilled sea bass and my son had an impressive pork chop. We enjoyed our dinner and desert and determined to not let this be our last dinner at Lilly Pond. Luis has a special talent for cuisine and ours was remarkable. Our key lime pie was delicious. By the way, this night was one of those nights on Roatan when there was no electricity and still the experience was fabulous !! We had a few more meals at Lilly Pond during our stay and all were equally satisfying !! Thanks to Zak and Luis for an amazing visit to your humble abode !!

The location of the Lily Pond is great. I went there with a friend for a mini vacation 4 days and we were able to walk up and down the shops on the West End during the day and bar hop at night. It was all very nice to be within walking distance and still be able to go home and not hear the party you just left. Sleeping there was quite peaceful and relaxing. For beaches there is a beach on the West End but we got on a water taxi that took no more than 5 minutes to get to West Bay and were able to enjoy those beaches and restaurants while there.
The Lily Pond really and truly exceeded all my expectations upon arrival. I walked up to the cute little white picket fence and was greeted by Luis. He knew exactly who we where and just showed us straight to our room, very hospitable from the beginning. Once in our room, we took in the décor, and our very own patio with a fountain! Zak and Luis were quite possibly the best hosts anyone could ask for. Every morning we woke up and had a delicious breakfast and coffee. Which was served at whatever time we woke up, unlike most hotels that have a cut off time for your complimentary breakfast. I personally took a look at all the rooms they have at the Lily Pond and they are all so cute. The top of the house has a wonderful view and you just want to sit up there and take in the view for a minute. Again Luis and Zak were so nice and accommodating, we couldn’t have asked for better service. They took very good care of us and even arranged for a taxi to take us to the ferry that did not want to rip us off and charge $20 or more for a 15 minute ride.
