“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I am so glad we found the Lily Pond House in Roatan via Tripadvisor for our recent trip. The place is done nicely by the owner, Zak and you can see his care in every corner of the house. Our room on the third floor was great with a balcony. Luis the chef whips out meals beautifully in his kitchen and they were both great hosts. I had a medical emergency during my trip and Zak drove us to the emergency care center and made sure that everything was okay with us. What we experience at the Lily Pond House was a friendship, not a business transaction. Even though we had a storm and raining days during our trip, our trip was saved by the two wonderful hosts.
I strongly recommend the Lily Pond House for those who appreciate the little things in life.

P.S:
Bring your own soap/shampoo/conditioner; water pressure is uneven - it's in an island. A hairdryer in the bathroom came handy.
Oh and I have to mention the dogs; Zak and Luis take care of a handful of friendly dogs who are very respectable to the guests.

Fantastic bed and breakfast. Zach, the owner, is a fantastic guy and will go out of his way to make you feel welcome, from picking you up at the airport, to giving you a brief tour around West End, to politely declining and then graciously accepting the tip at the end of your trip. The beatiful decor and the fact that it is slightly removed from the main strip make it an ideal spot to relax (as if you needed any help with that in Roatan. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Note: there is no fitness center or pool, but I can't erase the rating. All the rooms are wond...

Zak and Luis are incredibly wonderful hosts, and we enjoyed every minute of our one-week stay at Lily Pond. Luis' cooking is spectacular, and Zak went out of his way to be helpful and cater to our every need, providing us with snorkeling equipment, contacting local tour operators to set up excursions, etc. We stayed in the Penthouse suite, which is spacious and light-filled with tons of closet space. Being out on the porch feels like sitting in the treetops! The small bar downstairs is a great place to chill out and have a drink while listening to an eclectic mix of music. And the location is perfect - literally one minute from the "main strip" of West End. Our only complaint is that it was sometimes difficult to get the water running in the sink or shower on the third floor, since the pump seems to work inconsistently.

We miss Roatan and the dogs already...big kisses for Lola, Zeus, Amy and Wendy!

As many of the other reviews mention Zac and Luis are the perfect hosts, the rooms are beautiful as are the dogs and the food! This is a great place to hang out, get a little merry and have fun but it is also very chilled and a great place to relax and soak up the island atmosphere. All I can say really is that it rocks! We really miss the doggies and wish you all best for 2013 and thanks for having us! Vicky and Mel x

This is the perfect place for a real taste of Roatan. Zak and Luis are the absolute best hosts. They will become fast friends in a hurry. The food is superb! Breakfast anytime of morning and YOu choose what you want. I can't say enough about the hospitality of Zak and Luis.l wish I could go back again this weekend.( Hey Luis, miss you friend) You can stay in a resort pretty much anywhere and they are all pretty much alike. Come to the Lily Pond and get a real taste of that fantastic island and its proud islanders. I loved it there and wished I could have stayed two weeks instead of just one.

Room Tip: I stayed in the bottom floor room. The Lily pond is far enough off the main street that you are quie...

Located in West End the Lily Pond House is amazing beyond words. The food is delicious and the accommodations are exquisite. Zac and Louis the owners are very special people kind and generous. The prices are very inexpensive for both the food and the accommodations. They are both so helpful and the Hotel is run so very efficiently. The Lily Pond Hotel is the BEST hotel in the West End. If you go to Roatan and do not at least go and see the Lilly Pond House you will be missing out on something so special. Thanks for the memories!!!! I was in Roatan for five months from Feb 2012 until June of 2012.

Room Tip: ALL the rooms are exquisite you cannot go wrong!
