“Excellent choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

We stayed 5 nights. Perfect location amongst tropcial trees but still steps away from the beach. Very central. Very very clean. The maid did a fantastic job. Each room has it's own outdoor terasse which was nice to sit and have a few drinks. We did have 2 cockroaches (on 2 separate evenings) in the bathroom but I think this is common in Central America. Fridge is the room was nice to have. Would highly recommend staying here.

Stayed 7 nights.

Location can't be beat! West End embodies the best of what Roatan has to offer without over-commercialization! Dove with Native Sons Dive Shop next door (see review). The "Target" of mini-super bodegas is next door with everything you need. Sundowners - the best bar ever - is a 30 second walk away!

Stayed in a studio room with air conditioner (a nice luxury) and ceiling fan. Kitchen had a sink, stove, mini-fridge, and even a coffee-maker! Bathroom was had plenty of hot water. Toilet wouldn't flush properly during stay, but reported to front desk and fixed that day. Maid service daily with fresh towels (not the softest, but okay). Balcony had a table with chairs, a hammock and line to hang clothes.

Accommodations in the West End aren't necessarily luxurious, but Posada Arco Iris provides you everything you need with comfort and cleanliness. Would not hesitate to recommend or stay there again.

I stayed at this hotel at the end of 3 month trip in Cuna and Central America.
I travelled thru Central America by motorcycle and had a pretty full agenda so I was looking to relax before returning to Australia.
This hotel was definitely the place to do it,
My room was large and comfortable with a fridge and a really comfortable bed and cleaned every day.
My private porch was a great place to relax especially with the hammock.
So close to the beach and the rest of town.
Would definitely stay here if I retuirn

I just stayed at Posada Arco Iris during Semana Santa and it was a great experience! The rooms were clean and the restaurant was fantastic. The location is perfect with an amazing beach right outside your front door. They have free lounge chairs and kayaks for guests which was a very nice amenity!

The only thing that could have made my stay better would be to have mosquito nets in the rooms. We stayed in a room with no A/Cso so it got a little buggy at night when the windows were open.

We also dove with Native Sons dive shop which directly next door and downed beers at Sundowners which made the trip even better!

Rented #3, top floor...large unit. Clean unit and beds were okay. You will need to buy water, coffee, condiments...there is a little frig that worked good. Plenty of pots and pans and untensils. We loved the deck with table and chairs and hammock. Free kayaks and nominal fee for snorkel gear...we saw a turtle and lots of fish...We would definitely go back. Be prepared for lots of barking dogs during the night...we just put in some ear plugs. The restaurant was excellent and the service was excellent.

It seemed this was the only 'budget' accommodation we could find in the West End that wasn't on the main drag and we weren't disappointed. The price was good considering we were on an island, the room we stayed in had a nice queen sized bed, the room itself was spacious and had a private bathroom with bathtub/shower. The place was clean, the reception had 1 computer and some tourist info. There's also a Argentinian/Brazilian BBQ style restaurant at the front, we never ate there because it was a bit pricey for us but, the food did smell good. The hostel is pretty much as close to waterfront as you can get. And it was perfectly situated just off the main street in the bit of a "jungle" environment, so it was nice a quiet but, not too far from all the action.
