We stayed at the LiIly Pond House for 3 nights. The rooms are well maintained with wood floors, cultural decor, and cleanliness. We loved the bed and slept well all 3 nights undisturbed. We stayed on the 2nd floor and had a nice sized deck with beautiful wooden chairs and a table where we could take our breakfast.that Luis made custom- from excellent egg omelettes to a generous portion of fresh fruit salad, or home-made bread and fried potatoes- he and Zach were willing to accommodate anything.
Zach, the ex-pat who visited Honduras 8 years ago and decided he liked it so much he wanted to stay, is extremely friendly and was more than willing to give us his local perspective on everything and graciously offered for us to borrow a phone from him with his number in it in case anything happened. He even offered to drive us to the airport at the end of our stay. This place made you feel more like a friend than a visitor.
Things to note:
Lily Pond is within easy walking distance- minutes to West End, and perfectly situated near Sundowners where we ended most nights.
Bring a flashlight- Lily Pond has a generator but the electricity on Roatan tends to go out so be prepared to be walking in the dark if you're headed downtown like us.
Long story short, we would recommend Lily Pond House to anyone looking to experience Roatan and escape the dreaded all-inclusive or extreme budget backpacker options
