Just returned from a trip to Paradise Beach Hotel and Resort in West Bay, Roatan - it was such a great time! We had a short delay in Belize coming in due to issues at the airport, then we had a couple days of rain but after that it was sunny skies and warm weather. The beach was beautiful, our room was clean and comfortable. We did Scuba diving with the West Bay Divers and they are highly recommended, very knowledgeable, friendly and decently priced. We rented a scooter from the rental place in the West Bay mall located about 2 minutes down the road from the resort. We toured the island on our last day and it was such a fun day!
Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Make sure you take a water taxi to West End for the day and evening. We went on two boat trips with Alan, who operates the boat called "Captain Wayne" if he is on the beach when you are there make sure you say hello! Super friendly guy and very knowledgeable.
The only downsides were you only had 1 a la carte for the full 7 days and if you wanted to eat at the restaurants on the resort grounds you would have to pay. The all-inclusive did include all 3 meals in the dining hall but if you wanted food you needed to be there right as the meal time started or they frequently ran out of food or took a long time replenishing items. There was usually a good selection of food. You are only given two bottles of water upon arrival and you must keep them and refill them around the resort if you want to have water with you, which I found annoying but it was doable.
Other than that the resort was quiet, it was small enough you met your fellow travellers and people were friendly. We throughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others looking for a relaxing vacation is a really beautiful spot.
We caught fish and if you chat with the chef he will prepare it for you, for whatever meal you wish. This was an awesome addition - we had fresh fish for two meals while there. Make sure you trip nicely for that extra benefit! :)
Our room was in the first tower after the reception and it was great, never had any noise problems a...

Thank you for your review and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your time in Roatan and the bounty that is has to offer. Fishing and Diving are two great activities that you can enjoy here in Roatan, yet we are not limited to just these... next time why not try a round of Golf.
We are always looking for ways to improve and we have taken note of your bottled water comment. Currently there are numerous points around both hotels where you may replenish your bottles at any hour of the day or night, while at the same time you are no longer limited to just two bottles. While our staff try to accommodate everyone's needs, we realise that at meal time there is a rush, we are working on ways to solve this and we have already taken steps to fix the situation.
Roatan offers great Diving, Fishing and now amazing Golf, so we hope to see you back soon, so that you can put our improvements to the test,
