“Exceptional Destination in Every Way!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My family and I just returned from an exceptional week at Xbalanque. I initially discovered this luxury vacation destination through Trip Advisor. The reviews were outstanding and the actual experience exceeded our expectations. The resort/home is perfected situated between West End and West Bay. Both areas provide an abundance of dining, shopping and activities. However once you return to Xbalanque you retreat to an area of peace and privacy. And while there are plenty of dining options, by far the best meals that we experienced were right in Xbalanque’s private dining area, Lotus. The chef Pedro does an outstanding job.

For the golfers in your family, there is an outstanding golf course, The Black Pearl, located about ½ hour away in a resort called Pristine Bay. Greens fees ranged from $95-$125 and include a caddie and cart. I highly recommend the non-golfers in your group join you for a day trip to experience Pristine Bays fabulous pool and beach. There was a $25 fee for the use of the pool and beach club. Our host Patsy arranged tee times and transportation for this experience.

Our family has travelled extensively to many islands and resorts. Xbalanque ranks at the very top of our list for providing a one of a kind exceptional experience. This is a perfect location for weddings, large family reunions, families with children of all ages or couples seeking a romantic destination. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Thank you to Patsy and the staff of Xbalanque for hosting such a beautiful experience that our family will never forget.

“Absolute Perfection in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The owners, Patsy & Dennis were such a pleasure to stay and work with!
Extra special things like complimentary airport transportation, a stop at the grocery store and then a welcome basket in our room with wine, coffee and fruit! Oh and did I mention the fresh flowers in our suite and the complimentary welcome drink!? These were such nice things that we did not expect - Patsy mentioned these items after we reserved and she sent our welcome letter.
The property is unbelievably beautiful - a true testament to Patsy's flawless design style.
Our suite was gorgeous, comfortable, clean and far exceeded our expectations.
The pool was a joy to use each day and the hot tub was an unexpected bonus! Almost forgot - yes there is a massage room and an onsite masseuse. And free use of the kayaks along with snorkel equipment! They just continued to surprise us daily with what they had to offer.
The Lotus Restaurant they have onsite is phenomenal! Raul and Cecilia created some amazing meals for us. We stayed at Xbalanque for 8 nights - and ate dinner there 6 of those nights! Thursday night featured live music from a local musician, a local jeweler who came in to show us their beautiful jewelry and a Seafood Boil Feast!
Above and beyond anything we could have expected. On top of it all, Patsy had decorated everything flawlessly!
The location was wonderful - just far enough removed from West Bay and West End that it was easy to get to either yet secluded enough that we enjoyed some privacy.
If I could give 10 stars I would! We will definitely be going back to this gem of a place!
I highly recommend if you are planning a trip to Roatan and want a special place to stay - this is your place! Don't wait - reserve your slice of paradise NOW!! Once word gets out about Xbalanque they will be full all the time and you will regret not going sooner than later!

“it was fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

we loved staying here and will definilty return and would like to bring other people here too!
Patsy the owner was fantastic and helped us with all our needs and then some, she has a private chef in house that does a wonderful job, it is difficult to get around the city so it was just perfect to have an in house chef to cook for us, the few times we eat out I felt the food at Patsy's was much better and no hassles in getting around. the ambience was so perfect perfect weather and the homes are beautiful and so well furnished in a contemporary style which we loved. All was better than we had expected and they even picked us up at the airport so there were no worries being in a foreign country. Thanks to Patsy & her son for a wonderful time!

“Good times, great memories.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Our vacation exceeded our expectations. We were amazed with Xbalenque from the moment we arrived. The facility itself was beautiful and the staff incredibly nice. The suite was full equipped and very comfortable. We spent the day relaxing by the pool, on the beach or the private dock. The beachfront is gorgeous and a nice set back from the crowds. They have a small restaurant that serves great food, varying the menu every day. We also booked several days of scuba sessions on a nearby shop that picked us up right on the dock (dives were awesome!). We had the pleasure of meeting Patsy, the owner, and other great friends, who contributed to make this experience part of our great family vacation memories. We definitely plan to go back!
