Stayed all last week (Jan 4 - 12, 2013). Third trip to Roatán and second time to stay at Fosters.
If you are thinking a resort type accommodation by U.S. standards get that out of your head. By Honduran standards, it's quite nice. It's not the Waldorf Astoria, but by golly, it's a great location owned by local folks. If you have a problem with something, they do what they can to make it right.
I would like to offer one of the sons an apology. He put together a day trip to Cayos Cochinos, and we backed out. This cost him a little money. I am truly sorry for backing out like I did. He handled it like a true gentleman.
One of the other sons took us on an island tour. All the way to Punta Gorda. Thanks for a fun fun day! He even took us to a competitors resturant at the end of the day in West End. It was an honor to buy his supper. He even asked me if I would say grace at the dinner table. Good Christian man!
The fare at the cabana outdoor resturant is decent. They are very accommodating. They responded to any need that my wife, mother, daughter, or father had.
We ate at a nearby competitor resturant (Bite On The Beach). In conversation the owner asked where we were staying. I said Fosters. They responded that although they are competitors in the resturant business, they had nothing but respect for the family. She commented how they are one of the last local property owners who never sold out, but stayed to operate a successful business. Very nice to hear.
One of the workers for Fosters did extra nice things for my folks and me that when we went to a nice steak dinner in West End we just had to take him with us. He was so pleasant to have around. Good family man!
My advice.... Stay at Fosters. Sweet family. Hardworking family. But get the idea of American style resort out of your head. Be flexible. Have a chit chat with Mr. Foster and his boys. Good family.
Will definitely stay again next year.
I left out names of people as not to taint any person as positive or negative. Go judge for yourself!
